Summary

Christmas in a Cornish seaside town, bright lights, and a hot new romance to ward off the winter storms...what could be finer? But Gideon and Lee's first festive season together is shockingly interrupted when Lee tries to rid a client's home of a malevolent presence. The ritual goes wrong, and in its aftermath Lee is strangely altered.

As well as dealing with the changes in his lover, Gideon has a sinister thread to follow, linking the haunted house with disappearances among the homeless people of Falmouth. Can love withstand what looks like a case of possession?

As the darkest night of the year comes down, Gideon finds himself locked in a battle to restore his lover's soul.

Another great story

Another great paranormal mm story from Harper Fox. Wonderful writing and narration.

Again, I object to Audible Studios adding a 22 minute sample of the next book in the series to the end of the story. This gives a false running time and puts the audiobook into a higher price band.

No, Not for me

I liked his other book series with the two guys one being Romany, in fact I gave them both 5 stars but I cannot get into this series, it may well be me but I just hated it and only got through chapter 3. Sorry but disappointed.

A good series with great characters

I'm really enjoying the audio of this series, the characters are growing with each book as we learn more about them as they go about their lives and solve mysteries with a paranormal bent. This time, Lee is in trouble from a session gone wrong when he tries to help a woman remove a troubling presence in her house and it takes the help of Gideon's brother Ezekiel to start sorting things out. Something also seems to be haunting Lee which is not resolved so that's still to be dealt with.
The narration is very good although it has taken me a bit to get used to Gideon's voice as it's a lot more gravelly than I expected/ had in my head from reading the pixel version of the book. I'm enjoying it enough to want to get the rest in the series so I'm looking forward to making my way through the set.

No more for me

It’s not bad, but I just can’t continue the series. The stories are too short with little to no character building. The mysteries are too quickly solved and I can’t pickup on any real passion or chemistry between Tyack and Frane.
As I said though, it’s not bad. If you need something light and short to read, pick these up and give them a try. Maybe you’ll like them better than I did.
The narration was good. The voices are distinct enough to always know who’s speaking. The passionate scenes were done fairly well. I didn’t feel any real fear though as Mr Gilbert narrated the feelings experienced during the possession.

I’m really enjoying series

4.5⭐️. I am really loving this series with its “paranormal mystery” with police/psychic involved. The main characters are growing in love as their relationship flourishes. I really like how we are learning more of their backstories. It’s good character development. The author has done a very good job showing the obstacles that gay men experience throughout their lives without ever coming off “preachy”, even when there is a minister in the family. I would label this “steamy” and as this is my first series about men in love I find it appropriately sexy for 2 people in love and earlier in their relationship.
This one had a more psychic led storyline.

The one thing I realized is I don’t like the Narrator makes one character sound like a falsetto woman’s voice. In spite of that, I’m already downloading book 3.

Love this series

This is the second book I’ve listened to in this series. The Constance & the Psychic are so likable & fun. Well developed characters & locations. Good story. A real page turner.

Not enough story

The story was not as good as the first one - too much sex and not enough action, more like a romance than a mystery. Additionally, stories that end before much has resolved really disappoint me. Too bad, lot of potential for these two characters.

Too short, but highly recommended

It Christmas time in Dark and Gideon decides that he's earned a vacation. And he wants to spend it with Lee, on the Island, who's just arrived home from recording a television show. But first they have to do one more show in town. Only it doesn't go quite as planned and soon the couple is pulled into trouble in form of a haunted house, that is very reluctant to let Lee out of its clutches.

The relationship between Gideon and Lee is developing nicely. You can feel that there is a strong connection between them, trust, and friendship. And you can feel it maturing into something more, deeper and long lasting.

This book didn't have that same creepy feeling like the first one did, there was more suspense layered in. It does have it fair share of hauntings though. And the atmosphere that we loved from the first book is still present here. It will draw you in, and if you are so inclined, you might want to hide out under the covers when strangers knock on your door. You never know who or what seeks entrance.

Tim Gilbert did a good job narrating this book as well, I have to say he's really nailed the voices of both Gideon and Lee to really reflect their personalities as well as the feel of the book(s).

Again, I would've loved to have this book as a full length novel. I feel like there's just soo much to explore, both plot-wise and with the characters. I do believe this series really do have the potential to turn into a serious addiction.

And. if you haven't guessed it already; I am going to leave you now and go pick up the next book. I need to know more.

Steamy. Light-hearted. Mystery.

Tim Gilbert did a good job narrating Tinsel Fish , book 2 in The Track & Frayne Mysteries. His Cornish accent is spot on . As well, as his others British accents.

More than just solving paranormal mysteries , this series main plotline it's about Lee and Gideon relationship and interactions with their families and the small village , they all live.

This audio is very hot and explicit. Yep, these two heroes are passionate and loving with each other.

A good supernatural mystery with some gay romance!

Gideon and Lee return once more in Harper Fox's supernatural mystery with some gay romance added in. The character's have grown on me from the last book I read, although the voices to me still don't seem to fit the characters in my humble opinion, but I am loving the character development and how their relationship is developing. Tinselfish actually follows a little more with Lee and his psychic gifts, but we also get introduced to Gideon's family a little more. I definitely am enjoying these books, but be warned if you plan on reading this, and that is there is some hot and steamy parts to this book.
