Why I read this book:  I loved The Endless Road to Sunshine.

Two single dads. Two headstrong teenagers. One dead body.

A cabin in the middle of nowhere, nature all around, peace and serenity. It was supposed to be a vacation to help Nova reconnect with his son.

But he didn’t expect to fall for his neighbor in the cabin across the lake.

He didn’t expect an erratic and unusual broadcast on a radio station no longer in existence.

And he definitely didn’t expect a dead body in the water.

Mercy likes his mysteries to stay within the pages of his novels. When strange things start to happen at his summer cabin, he and his daughter team up with the man and his son on the other side of the lake to get to the bottom of it. A little amateur sleuthing won’t hurt anyone, right?

Someone out there knows the truth.
Who is the man on the radio?
What does he know?
Mercy and Nova are determined to solve the mystery, but are they willing to risk life and limb for answers? Because someone doesn’t want their secrets revealed.

**Radio Static is an MM romantic mystery involving two single dads in their midforties.**

My Review:

I love Nicky James and will listen to anything she writes.  I snapped this one up and started with it right away.  I wasn’t disappointed.

Nick J. Russo did a great job narrating the story.  He’s a good fit for Nicky’s mystery romances – just like they were made to go together.

Now, I very much know the area Nicky was writing about.  My cousins have a cabin on a lake not far from where the book’s set, so I didn’t find it hard to sink into the story.  I remembered my summer visits to the cabin and how wonderful the world was.

I loved Mercy and Nova in this book – two single fathers struggling.  Teenagers are tough at the best of times, but taking them on without the backup of a spouse is rough.  Now, Mercy chose this route while Nova has the dissolved marriage to contend with.

Anyway, this book had it all – romance, a decades-old mystery, a bit of reminiscing about the late twentieth century (God, I’m older than the guys by a bit…that said, I like older heroes – more, please.)

I had a couple of minutes where I wanted to shake the guys and go yeah, now would be a good time to leave – but the story wouldn’t have been compelling without the full resolution.

Love it and can’t wait for more.

My Rating:

10/10 Pots of Gold (100% Recommended) – Compares to 5/5 Stars

I live in the small town of Petrolia, Ontario, Canada and I am a mother to a wonderful teenage boy (didn’t think those words could be typed together…surprise) and wife to a truly supportive and understanding husband, who thankfully doesn’t think I’m crazy.

I have always had two profound dreams in life. To fall back hundreds of years in time and live in a simpler world, not bogged down by technology and to write novels. Since only one of these was a possibility I decided to make the other come alive on paper.

I write mm romance novels that take place in fantastical medieval-type settings and love to use the challenges of the times to give my stories and characters life.
