keysmash book review dinner at the blue moon cafe rick r reed

A monster moves through the night, hidden by the darkness, taking men, one by one, from Seattle’s gay gathering areas.

Amid an atmosphere of crippling fear, Thad Matthews finds his first true love working in an Italian restaurant called the Blue Moon Café. Sam Lupino is everything Thad has ever hoped for in a man: virile, sexy as hell, kind, and… he can cook!

As their romance heats up, the questions pile up. Who is the killer preying on Seattle’s gay men? What secrets is Sam’s Sicilian family hiding? And more importantly, why do Sam’s unexplained disappearances always coincide with the full moon?

The strength of Thad and Sam’s love will face the ultimate test when horrific revelations come to light beneath the full moon.

I love a good werewolf story, and this was a pretty good werewolf story. The writing style wasn’t my favorite, though.

The characters are great, and the mystery of the crimes being committed was well executed. The reader is clued in to who dunnit fairly early in the story, so the suspense comes from whether or not the characters are going to figure it out in time to keep themselves safe.

Sam and Thad’s attraction is immediate, and hard for Thad to ignore in the face of the suspicions he has about Sam and his family. I did really like the restaurant aspect of things, mostly because I grew up in an Italian restaurant.

All in all a good supernatural romance! Click below to give it a try.
