“Out of all the books that I’ve read so far in this series, ROAST MORTEM has to be my favorite. ”
~ Under the Covers

This was the first book I tried in audiobook for this series and I have to start off by saying that it’s amazing in audio. Since this series is set in New York, the characters have that distinct accent but the Cosi clan are also Italian, etc so there’s quite a lot of really distinct accents in this book and the narrator absolutely kills them all. Upbeat and fast-paced, this audio kicked ass.

Out of all the books that I’ve read so far in this series, ROAST MORTEM has to be my favorite. This one features firefighters so as you can expect it gets hot quickly. Some of these guys are really fun, while others are a little more rough around the edges. But I loved them all because they are the most interesting bunch of characters that we’ve encountered in the series so far. Part of this is due to Michael Quinn’s appearance. Michael is cousin to Mike Quinn, Clare’s boyfriend and he also has an interest in Clare so having to work with him in this investigation is definitely unsettling for her as he is a man who isn’t shy about his advances.

Mike and Clare’s relationship hits a small rough patch in this one and I was slightly annoyed that Mike kept Clare in the dark for so much in this book regarding his past with Michael but in the end, I totally understand why. It’s clear that Mike is the one that belongs with Clare and I loved how the authors also managed to incorporate Madame, Clare’s mother-in-law in this book as well. Her presence certainly spices things up!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
