    3.5 stars A little disappointed that the final action that took down the killer was written off page. After all the excitements that happened to get the guy, I wanted the big bang. ...

    Some Mild Spoilers At only 90 pages, there isn?t a lot of room for huge character and plot development, yet Lanyon manages to build two well-developed characters and a plot that was taken right out of actual 1940s headlines. The setting was well established, and the use of old, ou...

    A surprisingly quick read with a decent romance but a bit of a womp-womp mystery plot. It was an odd choice to have the climax take place off page and the whole ending seemed rushed as a result, including the romance. Those things aside, my biggest issue with this story was the casual ...

    A masterfully written novella packed with emotion and action. This was a lovely piece of writing. The short length of this had me worried that it might lack characterization, but Lanyon is a master. In only a few pages I was drawn into the emotional turmoil of Chief Robert Garrett a...

    Once again (Josh, really??) I think Josh can do so much better. Actually I was bored silly reading it until almost halfway, when somehow the protagonists seemed to a agree on "friends only". Which means that the following scene came so expectedly that for quite a bit I was looking for ...

    There is nothing better than a Josh Lanyon story. I loved these two together but they did have lots of problems, not the least of which was the time they fell in love. To be together, they had to be creative and creative they were. Short and sweet but quite complete, this one is perfec...

    I liked the time period in which this story takes place. I liked the characters. But I couldn't give this book more than 2 stars because, for such a short story there were too many editing errors. A few errors in a longer story can be excused, but more attention should be paid to the e...

    Josh Lanyon sets quite the mood with this gem of a story. You really feel like you are taken back in time. I just loved Robert and Jamie and the history these two shared. Seeing them figure out how they feel and navigate that into a way to share their lives was wonderful. Another winne...

    Things were far less fraught emotionally for Jamie than for Nathan of Snowball in Hell. The police chief, Robert, in their little Montana town had already expressed an interest in Jamie. The wild events of the story and the murder spree were based on a true story that occurred in Butte...

    For having waited so long for this story, I was really disappointed in the abrupt and unsatisfying ending. It felt unfinished. (And be forewarned, if you are reading from an old Kindle, (2010), don't be surprised if you can't read/see the near-to-last-bit. At 2 in the morning I was no...

    3.5* Set in late WW2 but in Montana, we follow Rob - late of the Pacific campaign and now police chief - as he chases down an armed murderer in the snow. His late brothers best friend James gets caught up in the chase too - Jamie has crushed on Rob for years and finally gets to spend ...

    Once again Josh Lanyon does not disappoint. She has blended suspense and romance perfectly as well as set the scene for the WW2 era homefront. Robert having been wounded and discharged is now sheriff and Jamie, 4F who is disappointed not to serve. One of my dad's uncles was unable to s...

    I don?t know if there are other books that fit with these characters since I didn?t see any mentioned but I wish there were. This is a heartwarming story. Robert watched over Jamie and Joey (Robert?s brother) when they were young. As all of them aged situations caused each to h...

    2.75 stars Not one of Lanyon's best shorts, and she has written some outstanding ones over the years. Sadly, I'll forget all about this one in a few days. ...

    I've loved everything Josh Lanyon that I've read so far, and this was no different! In fact, this might be up there as my favourite thing she's written so far - with the one flaw that it was just too dang short! I really wanted to spend way more time with these characters, and getting ...

    First, I should admit that I rarely read historical fiction. However, I love Josh Lanyon so I wanted to read the book. It was very enjoyable. It certainly provides a glimpse into what it was like to be gay in the 1940's. It also gives a realistic view of what it was like during WWII. I...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.5 stars As always, author Josh Lanyon has done her homework and Slay Ride has all the right components to make it feel authentic. Despite this being a short story, the sexual tension between Jamie and Rob is realistic and intense and the chase to capture...

    Loved the setting and how the story played out. Maybe just 3.5 because it was so short. Would have loved to see their relationship develop just a little more. Robert was such a solid guy and Jamie is a real sweetheart. It was painful to see how the war had hurt so many families- a lot ...

    Slay Ride reminded me a little bit of Snowball in Hell, as in the main characters were a journalist and a police officer. They both had some elements of war affecting the protagonists. I found the mystery to be all over the place though. ...

    I absolutely devour any historical that Josh Lanyon writes. They are such a sweet treat when she shares them with us, and I know they're a labor-intensive project like no other. Lanyon fully immersed the reader in another place and time, successfully painting a great backdrop of histor...

    A Fun-sized Story I read this story in one sitting not so much because it was short, but because I couldn?t put it down. Read it if you?re looking for a bit of suspense with your romance. ...

    I really liked it. Even when this is not your usual Lanyon book. Writing in third person left out all those delightfully funny, ironic bits of inner thoughts that writing in the first person allows, which are, at least to me, Josh Lanyon trademark. But I love how easy is to immerse ...

    I am reading this and really enjoying it and I feel the book coming to its climax and......nothing. I was so confused that one little newspaper clipping told what went down at the most important part of the entire story!!!! The story is centered around catching a criminal and one of th...

    Hmmm Well it was kind of too short. Like some stories fit the small size and some don't: this is the latter. If I were to nitpick, I'd say the narrative was too sweet. I love Josh Lanyon's subtle humor and this story was lacking it (maybe because it was third person narrative I don'...
