Publisher's Summary

By day, Rocky Jacobs is a private investigator. By night, he produces Sinister in Savannah, a true-crime podcast, with his two best friends.

Is Tess Hamilton pretty poison or just unlucky in love?

That's the question the trio of trouble will try to uncover. Tess, a woman accused of killing her three husbands, has been tried and convicted in the media, something Rocky knows all too well. When their investigation turns up nothing but dead ends, Rocky will keep digging. Is it because he believes in her innocence? Or does Rocky hope to find redemption for himself by achieving it for Tess?

A stagnant case turns out to be the least of his problems.

What happens in Vegas never truly stays stay there. For 15 months, Rocky has been running from a tragedy that shattered his life and countless others. The most painful casualty was the destruction of his marriage to Asher Dunleavy. When the sexy federal marshal turns up in Savannah, Rocky is reminded of his greatest love and deepest regret. Every minute spent in Asher's presence makes him yearn for the life they lost. Will Rocky drown in the sorrows of what might've been or fight for what could be?

Contains mature themes.

not quite 4 stars

Would I listen to it again: yes ✔
Did the story keep me engaged: yes ✔
Was I invested in the characters: yes ✔

📖 Story comment: Reasonable pace, interesting story, entertaining characters.
Rocky has some major PTSD issues (and rightfully so) and Asher is a good partner for him. The story was interesting, but the writing on this one just wasn't as sharp as the others. I still enjoyed it though and it was a nice way to finish up the series.

🎧 Narrator comment: Tristan James can be a narrator you either enjoy or don't. Personally I love him, I go through phases where he's just what I need in a narrator. I enjoyed his reading of this series and the Zero Hour series, he's kept the characters consistent (which makes me happy) and will happily listen to them again.

📌 Where does it fall on my personal scale? 6.5

• 1 not my thing • 2 didn't like the narration • 3 didn't keep my attention • 4 was good, but once was enough • 5 enjoyed it • 6 will listen again if i'm in the mood for the narrator • 7 goes on the "re-listen" list • 8 kept me up past bed-time • 9 recommended to family/friends • 10 own it in multiple formats • 11 keep a copy with me at all times

So good!

I enjoyed knowing Rocky and Asher were already married. It was a nice journey to their HEA. Rocky working through his trauma is very time appropriate!!

Disappointing

There was a whole lot of talking for a book that not much happened in. Rocky and his husband rekindle way too easily, the investigation the Sinister in Savannah team work on is a big red herring, and there is too much unrealistic sentimentality between the guys in this book, which made some sections too cheezy.

Tristan James narration was as expected but his lack of range and accents is starting to bug me now. I've heard maybe 30 books he's narrated and he sounds exactly the same no matter whose book he's narrating. And another constant with him is that he's CLUELESS about the pronunciation of Irish/Gaelic words. As an Irish woman, it's embarrassing to hear him continually mess up like this.

I think I have a new favorite!

I think Rocky is my new favorite and I loved Aimee's approach to Rocky and his PTSD. Rocky and Asher are so hot together and their love and commitment shines through even with so long apart. I love that Asher never gave up on Rocky!
I feel like there's so much more to all these men but I love that they've all found their person and their bromance is off the charts. I look forward to seeing more of them in more books from the Savannah universe!!! loved it!
