Moonbeams over Atlanta welcomes Rhys Ford back for a guest post AND a review of Tequila Mockingbird which released on June 27, 2014! They are actually separate posts this time so make sure you check out the guest post from Rhys Ford too.
Rhys provided the story to me for an honest review along with A Devil’s Brew. Thank you. I absolutely love the Sinners series and can’t wait for another installment. 🙂
As per usual, Rhys continues to keep Sinners’ series flowing well.
We are introduced to Lieutenant Connor Morgan of SFPD’s SWAT division and the return of the Morgan clan with his first scene: A raid on a trailer for drugs that turns out to have a murdered man he tried to save. Enter the murdered man’s adopted son Forest Ackerman, a drummer who’s trouble with a capitol T. Connor is the the eldest son in the family who has everything worked out—a career in law enforcement, a nice house, and a typical family. He doesn’t expect to fall in love with a man that started with comforting Forest after that raid. Trouble comes in the form of attacks on his coffee shop intent on killing Forest, and Connor steps in to save him. Through it all, Connor and Forest circle one another like magnets as they fall in love.
And fall in love they do. I liked that there were more suspense and a little darker with the scenes. It provided a realism that brings depth to the series, the characters, and the lives of everyone touched. We see more of the Morgan clan, including Connor’s parents Donal and Brigid, and all of the sisters and brothers. It’s great to see more secondary characters get into the action. I enjoyed it immensely and would love to see more, especially with Quinn. 🙂
With this, I give Tequila Mockingbird 5 stars.
