2018-2019 Rainbow Awards: Best Gay Romantic Suspence

And the Rainbow Award goes to...



1.
Tara Lain - The Case of the Sexy Shakespearean


The Case of the Sexy Shakespearean (The Middlemark Mysteries Book 1)

"I enjoyed this cozy mystery. The MCs are likeable, and are supported by an interesting supporting cast amongst a littering of obnoxious individuals. I loved the cats who are characters in their own right. The setting felt real and was easy to imagine. The plot had a few red herrings, and clever twists. I’m hoping this is the first in a series."

"Extremely entertaining with a plot twist at the end that I didn’t see coming.  The main characters were endearing and I loved the subtle message about the stutter’s origin and why it lessens near the end.  This feels like a book with both prequels (I want more about Ramon Randell and other cases solved by the professor) and sequels (what other mysteries does our dynamic duo solve?"

Amy Lane - A Few Good Fish


A Few Good Fish (Fish Out of Water Book 3)

"This was a sexy seamless read. The characters were amazing and Amy's writing style is fun and addictive."

"Exciting plot, well paced - interspersing periods of high action with domestic scenarios. Beautifully written so settings were real - from shopping in Walmart’s to raiding a mercenary military camp. The quality of the writing also meant characters were clearly defined, each one unique. The only down was that this book is mid series, some scenes or discussions were slightly confusing without the context of previous books, although generally the author managed to supply some details of previous episodes."

Eden Winters - Suspicion (Diversion #7)


Suspicion (Diversion Book 7)

"I just love this series, so it was a treat for me to read this newest installment. I've been following Lucky and Bo from their beginnings, and I can only admire the way the author keeps them true to themselves while letting their characters grow and change over time. They feel like real persons to me. Not to mention the supportive cast. There's not one cardboard character among them; they all have their own personalities, quirks and peeves. But what keeps me returning to these books over and over is the deep humanity they breathe, the inane belief in the good in all human beings they convey."

"Suspicion continues Winters' Diversion series in a way that should delight existing fans as well as intrigue new readers. I'd only read the first book, and a long time ago, but I was able to fall back into the story of Lucky's fall and rise (and fall, and rise) as an agent with the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. This story develops his family (blood and found) and tests loyalties. A fast-paced adventure with plenty of steam."
