Review Of Northern Light E. J. Russell
Northern Light by E. J. Russell 3*
BLURB: Nothing gives art fraud investigator Luke Morganstern a bigger rush than busting forgers, the low-life criminals who dare victimize true artists. But when his latest job sends him to a remote cabin in the Oregon Coast Range, he’s stunned to discover the alleged forger is his former lover, Stefan Cobbe, the most gifted painter Luke has ever known.
Stefan, left homeless and destitute after the death of his wealthy partner, doesn’t exactly deny the forgery -- he claims he doesn’t remember, an excuse Luke can’t accept.
But Luke’s elderly client suggests Stefan may be telling the truth and presents another possibility – a dark presence in the woods, a supernatural fury simmering for decades. Luke must face down his fear of the uncanny – and admit his feelings for Stefan – if either of them is to survive.
My Review: Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley. Ghostly possession and art fraud meet in a sweet little m/m romance. There really could have been a lot done with this that wasn't and as such has let down the reader. I really liked the premise and what there was of the story was good - it just wasn't enough depth for me.
