Griffin Flaherty wants nothing more than to create a perfect Valentine’s Day for his lover, Dr. Percival Endicott Whyborne. Dinner at a fancy restaurant, an evening at the theater, and a romantic interlude at home should do the trick.
But a new client with an urgent case puts Griffin’s plans in jeopardy. A magic talisman has been stolen, and if it isn’t returned by sundown, it may unleash disaster not only on the thief but the innocents around him.
Can Whyborne and Griffin track down the thief and return the amulet by nightfall, or will dinner reservations become the least of their worries?
I’m understanding more and more why this series is so popular. I had a great time reading this. It might be a short story, but it was very interesting.
It was great to see Griffin’s point of view in this one. I’m very fond on him. Is not like I didn’t liked Whyborne, he is a great character and seeing him through his lover’s eyes was beautiful.
The mystery part was great. I was amazed by how such a short story was able to deliver a, somehow, elaborated plot and still had time for romance. It also was able to scare me a little bit, not as much as the previous book, but it was really good.
I definitely will be reading the next in the series soon.
