What makes this story so engaging it's that, in the end, is a book about a couple's everyday life. You get to know them and also their families, friends, enemies, frenemies, good and bad co-workers... The catch is, this particular couple believe in domestic discipline and one of them happens to be a drag queen and a much bigger drama queen when the mood hits him. But they are just like you and me, only much more amusing.
Twinkles, as I am sure he'd be glad to, steals the show. He is cute, brattish, selfish, kind, funny, smart and dumb; all of that and a bit more that is uniquely twinkles. If you are in the mood for an entertaining book to spend a nice weekend and have a lot of laughters and a very few tears, go ahead and buy it. Only I warn you, it ends on a cliffhanger and the next book is not out yet.
The cliffhanger solution was hilarious, but I felt a little bit disappointed, it isn't like Tarn to be so sneaky; now, Twinkles, on the other hand... The wedding was delightful, I can't imagine a better one. Well done, author. Overall, if you liked the other books, you'll enjoy this one, the second is still my favorite of the bunch, but it's always lovely to spend time with these guys.
I enjoy a lot Fabian Black's writing style and themes, so in that sense, this book is not a disappointment. However, this time the author has chosen a more ambitious topic, something which could been have developed into a more complex story but it's not fully realised, maybe because of the length of the novel. The end came too soon, just when I was getting really interested. Anyway, a pleasant read.
I really enjoyed this one, even if the Aussie slang was a bit difficult. The real main character here was the town and I have to congratulate the author, she managed wonderfully to convey its sense of place. Then, this story is about how two truly ordinary people get together - a rarity in romances, let alone m/m romances . So, a very satisfying read, I am looking forward to read more from this author.
