North on Drummond

Drew Drummond has inherited the family business from his grandmother. His family has a shady past but he's stayed on the right side of the law performing as a psychic tarot card reader. Drew doesn't believe it's real and feels he is offering entertainment. Cliff Garcia was the boy Drew crushed on all through high school but Cliff never knew he existed and then left for California never looking back. Years go by and Cliff is back in town working as a police officer. Cliff has always had an adversarial relationship with Drew's family so he is hesitant to give Drew a chance. An accident causes Drew to start having visions and everything changes for the two me.

The writing flowed well in this story that was both mystery and romance. There was a nice mix of both as the book went along. Both main characters were well developed and there were a lot of interesting side characters that I'd like to see future books about. Drew in particular was really fun. He was sweet and quirky. Cliff was a little more on the broody side but once he committed himself to Drew he became more likable.

This was my first time reading this author and I was very pleased. I enjoyed both the plot and the writing style. I will be quickly checking out other books by her/him.

Book Blurb for North on Drummond

Sandy Bottom Bay, Florida--Come for the Haunts, Stay for the Beaches!

Drew Drummond might call himself a psychic tarot reader, but he doesn’t believe in the supernatural. The business was left to him by his grandmother, and seemed the best way to rise above the chronic criminal behavior of the Drummond family. Despite his efforts, few of the townspeople consider him a good romantic match. Being gay only makes finding love more difficult.

When Cliff Garcia, Drew’s teenaged crush, moves back to town and joins the police force, Drew doesn’t think he has a chance. After all, the skeptical cop considers Drew’s profession on par with professional conmen, and Cliff had spent his entire school career feuding with Drew’s volatile brothers. Despite the obstacles, Drew and Cliff begin a fiery relationship.

Just when Drew starts to believe they might have a chance, he suffers a head injury and begins having visions of the future. If Drew tells Cliff the truth, he’ll lose the man he’s falling for, but keeping his new ability a secret is no longer an option. If he can’t convince Cliff he’s for real, a murderer will walk free.
