New Release Review ~ Last Chance (Kip O’Connor M/M Mystery Book 3) by S.C. Wynne

Wait just a minute. A whole month has passed and no one has been murdered in Pearl Cove?

Things are settling down in Pearl Cove as Kip and Merrick fumble their way through a new relationship. There’s no denying the two men have deep feelings for each other, but trust issues can play havoc when people don’t communicate well.

When Kip’s office manager, Helen, has her home burgled, but nothing is stolen, the Pearl Cove PD have little interest in solving the case. Kip, Charlene, and Helen decide a little amateur sleuthing couldn’t hurt anything.

Not surprisingly, Police Chief Dawson doesn’t agree. He whole heartedly disapproves of his boyfriend’s plan to nab the trespasser. But if the police won’t do anything, Kip isn’t about to turn his back on his friend.

In fact, it’s rather fun to play detective… until the thief tries to murder them.

This is book three in S.C. Wynne’s Kip O’Connor M/M Cozy Mystery series. Each book has a cozy feel to it and there is a strong romantic storyline in each book. No on page graphic steam, but some mild violence.

4.5 Stars!

In this third installment of the series, Merrick and Kit have been dating for a month and while Kit is cautiously happy about it, he’s waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I just adore these two together and I was glad that their problems were mostly because of Thomas’s advice to Merrick and not because Merrick wanted to keep things from Kit. I was worried for a second there. LOL They just have such great chemistry and it’s obvious that even if they will have some growing pains, they are willing to make it work.

The case was intriguing. I kind of figured it had something to do with Helen’s aunt’s inheritance, but I didn’t imagine the length the real culprit would go for what he was after. I would’ve liked a bit more closure with Helen’s bad neighbors, other than just being told what happened to them, especially after they were so nasty to Helen and Kip, though! Other than that, I loved Kip, Helen and Charlene working as a team to investigate who’d burglarized Helen’s home, they’re really fun, even if they got in trouble.

Anyway, this was a great read, fast-paced, engaging, fun, definitely one I have no trouble recommending, just don’t forget to read the first two books first!
