Reviewed by Nannette



Christopher Holmes is attending a writers’ conference, trying to resurrect his writing career, when he stumbles on a dead body in the woods. The conference takes on an eerie quality now that the news is out and everyone is wondering who killed Peaches. Despite his efforts, Christopher’s career is still sliding downhill and now he’s wondering if he could be the next victim. To make matters worse, J.X. Moriarity is attending the conference, too. J.X. is an ex-cop turned writer. Christopher and J.X have a little history together and it’s repeating itself. With a murderer on the loose, they may never get the chance to see what might have been.

Somebody Killed his Editor is a suspenseful and witty tale. Christopher and J.X. do a good job of tearing each other up emotionally, making their eventual reconciliation that much sweeter. Josh Lanyon’s usual blend of intense romantic angst and a cast of colorful characters make Somebody Killed his Editor a real page-turner.  What makes Somebody Killed his Editor a little different from Lanyon’s previous books is the light-heartedness of the story. The suspense is high, but the investigation is often a lot of fun. Christopher made me laugh a lot. When I read a Josh Lanyon book, I prepare myself for hot guys, a dead body or three, and an unconventional romance. I usually cry before I get my happily-ever-after. And I look forward to it every time!
