A beautifully constructed murder mystery superior to some of the mainstream as opposed to MM mysteries I ve read over the past year The romance is a bit tepid throughout most of the story since it s mostly Brother Casey fretting about whether Brother Sebastian likes him and Brother Sebastian having important things to worry about Eventually the romance picks up but I don t consider that the strong point of the novel The murder mystery is well constructed with well characterized suspects and an interesting backdrop The author seems to have done considerable research on the workings of a Trappist monastery which adds a lot to the feel of the novel and the writing style was excellent

This gets 5 stars but mostly for 1 The ending 2 The mystery The romance was not huge in this book to me it was a mystery book with romance thrown in All the same it was a very good and interesting book Sebastian and Casey take ages to get together in this book but I must admit there is chemistry there I was gripped after the murder and even I got it wrong I love when that happens because it add s to the feel of the story I was glad they gave little insights to what the MC s lives were like before they joined the ministry Great read

On a rare occasion there s a book you come by that surprises to the point it leaves you rather happy This novel is certainly one of those times I am used to mundane gay male romance lit and muddle through them to enjoy the love and sex and happy endings But this novel took my breath away The writing was exuisite uite the style that I devour and I feel as if I found a rare gem in shelter Somerset the only drawback would be the mystery toward the end I felt that not enough info was given early on to allow the reader to solve the mystery of who the stranger was and why he d come to the abbey This was not a complete failure since many hints were given about who might have committed the murder I m sure I will reread this novel in the future and perhaps I missed something But nonetheless what a joyride of wonderful prose and clean writing
