Summary

Proposing vs. defusing a bomb?

Defusing a bomb is much easier than proposing.

Defusing Donovan’s anger over getting on a plane to defuse said bomb? Harder than the bomb.

Jon is not liking these odds.

Is proposing supposed to be this difficult? 

Tags: Jon and Donovan have a fight, as expected they’re very bad at it, things go BOOM, my kink is healthy processing and expressing of emotions, relationship lessons, life lessons, love is not based on worth, the dads are awesome, I put Jon on a plane, because I’m evil that way, personal space? What’s that?, cats, Jon has a new toy, no I’m not talking about Donovan, the bomb squad is ready to just keep Jon, roadtrip!, grandparents also rock, absolutely nothing goes according to plan

Fun read

This was a nice, easy, fun read. The characters were, on the whole, likeable and the narrator was good.

Great characters and good narration

I love this series and would recommend that the series is read in order to get the most out of Jon and Donovans story. The world where psychics are real and recognised is interesting and the love story is so heart-warming. With the narration I struggled initially with Donovans voice as he sounded very different in my head but the narration definitely grew on me until I stopped noticing.

Good Series

I really like this series and characters. It might be a bit nit picky, but it is frustrating when different characters from different backgrounds and regions use the exact same speech patterns, metaphors, sayings, behaviors (like low whistles). It is exceptionally unlikely from a linguistics standpoint & distracts from the story. Also, unsure if this author has ever had cats, but cats don't need to be trained and it is rare for a kitten to have to be taught how to use a litter box. I agree adult cats are important to adopt, but she wrote about kittens like they were puppies.

This book blew my mind!

As a huge fan of Mr. Sherwood, I was waiting excitedly for this audiobook because I loved so much the written version. I haven't been so enthralled for any book in a long, long time. This new story in Jon's Mysteries Case's series caught me so tight that I couldn't let go until discovering what was going to happen. I simply couldn't stop reading until the wonderful end. I promise no spoil anything for you so I just want to say that this book includes some highly expected new characters, lovely cats, and the scenes were so exciting and amazing that page after page I cried, and sighed, and cried again because the perfect dialogues, situations, heartwarming moments and all the action that made my heart bleed. At the end I am sure that the last chapter would be worth of every wait, every sigh and every tear you shed. Regarding the narration, Mr. Thomas made a wonderful job with his performance ensuring his reading reflected all the emotions written in the pages. This book really blew my mind!! Loved it so much!!

John is on a ✈️ 😳

Jon and Donovan are off to Vegas not for anything fun, there is action, fun, love, job offers, crazy outfits for Jon, Donovan is very upset, The dad’s help out and grandma and grandpa come thru in a big way. Very enjoyable, I hope there will be more I missed the crew in this adventure.

Need more

I’ve bought all the Jon’s Mysteries series. I wish Mack’s & Brandon’s books were on audible to. I hope we see more books with both!

Good solid comfort story with mystery and action!

This is a continuation of a series, where the main characters feel like good old friends. Their romance is sweet, but becomes rocky in their first ever fight. There are bombs, a terrifying airplane ride, mystery, cats, and wedding bells on the horizon. I like the overall plot, and the “who-dunnit” is a mystery right up to the end. Lots of good stuff packed into an engaging book filled with characters we know and love.

Wonderful

Another great audio of this series. I loved it. Lloyd is perfect for narration of these books, he brings Jon and Donovan to life.
