Summary

Psychic Tennyson Grimm was kicked out of his house and disowned by his religious parents when he came out to them as gay and psychic. The last thing Tennyson’s father said before the teenager boarded a Greyhound bus to Boston was that his son was dead to him. Flash forward 13 years later: Tennyson couldn’t have been more surprised when he woke to find the newly dead spirit of his father sitting on the end of his bed. David Grimm had one request of his estranged son: Go to Kansas and reunite with his mother. 

Cold case detective Ronan O’Mara was all for this family reunion. Still recovering from injuries suffered during his last criminal investigation, he figures they’ll fly to Kansas, bury Tennyson’s father and the hatchet with Kaye Grimm, then come back to Boston in time to plan their upcoming wedding. 

When the Union Chapel sheriff comes to Tennyson and Ronan with a years-old cold case he’d like them to look into, the Boston-based duo can’t turn down taking a peek at the case file. Tennyson is easily able to figure out whodunit, but the sheriff is leery to believe in his gift, bringing old prejudices back to life, and leaving Ronan to hunt for physical evidence the killer left behind. 

Will Ronan be able to solve the cold case and help Tennyson resolve the decade-old feud with his mother? Or will the tornado with its sights set on the tiny town of Union Chapel, Kansas, make the other questions moot?

Family connections

Michael Pauley does a wonderful bringing the characters to life yet again. You don't have to have read/listened to any of the previous books to enjoy this one, but you get a better feel for the main characters if you read the previous books.

This story starts with the spirit of Tennyson Grimm's estranged father showing up in his and Ronan's bedroom in the middle of the night. Ten's father tries to plead his case with the famous Cold Case Psychic asking him to go help his mother who has no family left except for him.
Ten and Ro reluctantly head for Kansas to attend the funeral of David Grimm. Ten tries to reach out to his grieving mother and with Ronan's help, he manages to reach a tentative truce with her so that the duo can help her get things in order for the funeral and beyond.
To add to the already precarious situation, the town sheriff invites the famous duo to work their magic on a case gone ten years cold. Add in a tornado, and just imagine the potential fall out.
I recommend this to all paranormal mystery fans who also love some man on man sexy times. A must for all Pandora Pine fans.

Excellent as always

Such a great story with so much in it. Family drama and reconciliation (in a manner of speaking).
Michael Pauley gives life to all the characters. I love gruff sounding Ronan. I always miss these stories when I finish them and can’t wait for the next one.

I'm Hooked!

One: Michael Pauley can do no wrong. He is amazing at voices, accents, and adding just the right inflections to differentiate between different characters and in different scenarios. I feel obligated to love just about any book he narrates, honestly. He's just that good.

Two: I knew about two minutes into this book that I would love it, and I was definitely proven right. The story immediately starts off with a flashback that not only pulls you in but makes you extremely emotionally invested in the plot before you even get back into Tenny and Ronan's current storyline.

I'm very difficult to please when it comes to well-written fictional characters, and these two continue to be two of my favorites. Characters need to be identifiable, empathetic, but flawed enough to be realistic. Tennyson and Ronan continue to be amazing, and Michael Pauley narrates their chemistry flawlessly!

I haven't read/listened to a lot of Pandora Pine (very little actually), but if the other books are anything like this one, I'm going to end up collecting them all.

Love!

Love This Series!!!

I keep thinking this series can't get any better and then Pandora Pine outdoes herself. I loved Dead To Me. This book has it all. Humor, mystery, angst and best of all more Tennyson and Ronan.
Michael Pauley does an outstanding job of giving voice to these amazing characters. He truly adds so much depth to this story!
Dead To Me is a beautifully written romantic suspense novel. I can't wait for more!!!!

Great continuation of this series

This was a tough one as we knew that Ten's parents were majorly homophobic, but you don't really feel it because we never saw them on page. Well his mother, holy crap lady get a clue & that town he grow up in, keep on driving. So Ten wakes up to his dad who had just dropped dead from a heart attack & he asks Ten to go home & help his mother plan the funeral and help get his mom settled. I hated her from the moment that we met her & by the end she really hadn't redeemed herself to me, but she was getting there. Of course while all of this is going on, the sheriff of the town asks Ronan & Ten for help on a cold case. Now to me the who was so obvious that I know who it was before they ever stepped on page. The why absolutely floored me & the outcome sickened me. But the investigation was pretty good. Kevin & Greeley come to help them get through the arraignments & Greeley really shines not only with getting through Ten's mother but with the investigation of the cold case. He is going to make a great detective. While we have the funeral, getting his mother settled, investigating a cold case, there is also a tornado; it's Kansas after all. The only thing that bothered me is that the wedding seemed rushed, I would have liked more of the planning and the events. The actual service was perfect and what Ronan gets to see brought tears to my eyes. As always, Michael Pauley did an amazing job narrating this one. I can't wait for the next one to come out on audio.

SPECTACULAR!!

Another spectacular addition to this wonderful series. This installment is more emotional than the others because it deals with Tennyson's parents who threw him out of the house when he was 18 because he was gay and a psychic. Now, he's headed back home with Ronan to help his mother at his dead father's request. Love Tennyson's and Ronan's relationship, they are so perfect together, grow stronger, and truly help one another through everything. Greeley was really spectacular in this book. Lots of emotions in this one, had me laughing and crying, but loved every minute of it!! The narrator is absolutely FANTASTIC with all of the emotions and feelings of the characters and the stories. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

More Greatness with Ronan and Tenn

The more I get to know these guys the more I love them! I love how Pandora’s storylines always manage to give us the parts of each book we love while always managing to keep each story different and show us new sides of our guys. The premise of this particular book really hit home for me too and I thought it was handled really well! Loved it. Can’t wait for more as always!

Wow...

Yeah, I grew up knowing a Kaye. Poor Tennyson, he just had such a hard time
in this book, the high stress taking a big emotional toll on him. Ronan
really stepped up to the plate to help keep Ten sane and grounded. But who
really stepped into the spotlight for me? Greeley. I have always loved
that kid, but the growth and empathy he displays just really cements it for
me. That combined with a twisted little cold case made a really intriguing
book.
One of the things that I love the most about this series is that the whole
"family" takes care of their own, always joining in to help on cases,
funerals, whatever is needed. They are a fun bunch, and the humor
interspersed with the hard details of the case, really balances the book
out.

Michael Pauley narrated this audiobook, and as always, does a fantastic
job. The deep voice of Ronan, the young teenaged voice of Greeley, to Kaye
and Shelly... all voices are significantly different, and very consistent
between the books in the series. Anyone who listens to a series knows how
very important it is to have that consistency. The female voices are not
high pitched or falsetto, which is really important to me as well.

Between the fantastic story line and the excellent voice acting, this
audiobook goes into the "re-listen" pile for sure. I highly recommend this
book.

Getting to know Tennyson

“You never would have found your Ronan if you hadn’t gotten on the bus.” Shelly to Tennyson

This time Ronan and Ten weren’t focused on a typical cold case like in the past. Tennyson’s still living mother, the passing of his father and their wedding was what this story revolved around. Oh, and getting to know more about Greely! I absolutely adored the kid.

Yes, there was a cold case they helped with while trying to help Ten’s mother, but it was quickly solved.

I loved learning all the back story of Tennyson and the hurt he went through at the words of his family. I’m also grateful he was able to look at the outcome of their harsh actions in a positive way.

“You saw that man, you saw the way he looks at me. If I could go back and change anything I wouldn’t.” Tennyson to Shelly

This story had all the feels and I found myself tearing up, even for Kaye. I was excited about the wedding and the ending was beautiful.
