2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Stumptown Spirits by E.J. Russell (125-06-03-2016)

1) This was a very enjoyable, fast paced story. I loved the chemistry between the main characters and the plot was original and kept me reading straight through.

2) Ho.lly.Crap! What a ride this story was! I'm so excited to have had the honor of reading this wonderful, fast paced book. At first, I wasn't sure what was going on with Logan, why he wouldn't reveal what his motives were, and why he hid so much information from from Rilley, the love of his life. But once the story picked up speed I was hooked. I couldn't put it down, thus, getting in bed super late. Then I picked it up once more and read through til the Oh, so exciting, end. Wonderful story. I wouldn't mind reading twenty books just like this one back to back. Stories that keep me at the edge of the proverbial seat are the ones I enjoy the most. Great work, Ms. Russell!

3) Logan and Riley are perfectly disfuctional. Add to that the well thought out mystery and paranormal elements, I couldn't put it down.

What price would you pay to rescue a friend from hell?

For Logan Conner, the answer is almost anything. Guilt-ridden over trapping his college roommate in a ghost war rooted in Portland’s pioneer past, Logan has spent years searching for a solution. Then his new boyfriend, folklorist Riley Morrel, inadvertently gives him the key. Determined to pay his debt—and keep Riley safe—Logan abandons Riley and returns to Portland, prepared to give up his freedom and his future to make things right.

Crushed by Logan’s betrayal, Riley drops out of school and takes a job on a lackluster paranormal investigation show. When the crew arrives in Portland to film an episode about a local legend of feuding ghosts, he stumbles across Logan working at a local bar, and learns the truth about Logan’s plan.

Their destinies once more intertwined, the two men attempt to reforge their relationship while dodging a narcissistic TV personality, a craven ex-ghost, and a curmudgeonly bar owner with a hidden agenda. But Logan’s date with destiny is looming, and his life might not be the only one at stake.
