An Alisa Release Day Review: Somebody to Die For (Requiem Inc. #3) by Kris T. Bethke

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Dying is easy. New love is terrifying.

Avery Wagner quit ghostwalking when he lost his beloved anchor to cancer. Now teaching others who have the ability, he’s beginning to live again—but he’s not looking for another lover, not now, maybe not ever.

But then he meets Jameson… younger, talented, dedicated, almost perfect, even though his mouth sometimes opens ahead of his brain. And Jameson wants Avery desperately, though he’ll settle for friendship if he can’t have more.

When an emergency demands they work together in the field, Avery discovers just how perfect Jameson is. But he had a perfect love once before, and he’s scared to even consider that he might have a chance at another. Can he trust Jameson with his newly healing heart?

This has been a great series and the author continues to deliver.  We met Avery in the first book when he helped Blake and Derek and we get to see him work through the loss of his bonded a few years before.  Jameson is still in training but looks forward to having a ghostwalker to take care of.

Avery hasn’t ghostwalked in years but he does when there is trouble and it puts Jameson in even closer proximity than their developing friendship has.  Jameson will do anything to take care of Avery and has the understanding he needs.

We get to see Avery and Jameson meet and boy do they get off on the wrong foot but Jameson wonderfully shows Avery he isn’t quite the jerk he came off as.  Avery is so fragile in some ways but finds the strength to go after what he wants and needs.  There are times he seems to jump ahead when he isn’t quite ready yet and I felt it just hurt Jameson when that happened.  Jameson is about the most understanding person alive that it didn’t seem reasonable.  I really liked the story but it seemed Avery and Jameson were on are far ends of the scale for their personalities.  I look forward to more books in this universe and hope that Tyler is the focus of the next book.

The cover art by Aaron Anderson is great and it’s similar in style to the others in the series and also gives a wonderful visual of Avery.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
