Release Day Review: Words by John Inman

Title: Words
Author: John Inman
Release Date: June 12, 2018
Category: Thriller
Pages: 204
The world of writers, readers, and reviewers is a close-knit family of friends, fans, and fiction fanatics. That’s the world Milo Cook and Logan Hunter reside in—thriving on the give and take of creativity, the sharing of stories and ideas, and forever glorying in their boundless love of books and the words that make them breathe.
But sometimes words can cut too deep. And when they do, there is inevitably a price to pay.
What begins for Milo and Logan as a time of new love and gentle romantic discoveries, becomes before it’s over a race for their lives and for the lives of everyone they know.
Who would ever suspect than an entity as beautiful as the written word could become a catalyst for revenge? And ultimately—murder?

Well, this book! Author Milo meets reviewer Logan at a failed author event. Milo is instantly attracted to Logan, or his legs, at least. They have dinner and enjoy their time getting to know each other. The first half of the book is really spent on the developing relationship between the two men and getting to know them. It seemed a little slow, but it really was the story of two men sharing their past, themselves and finding love. Both characters were really likable and seemed nice.

But while there’s this nice love story unfolding, there’s this other storyline of murder happening. I don’t want to give a lot away regarding this storyline because I found it a little terrifying and a little hilarious. I thought the plotline with the murders was very creative, well done, and may give pause to some people. ;) I did not figure out who the murderer actually was. When everything all comes to a head, I thought I knew who it was and the story seemed to support that but then there was an unexpected person that changed that.

This was an entertaining murder mystery and romance. It seemed like insight into the author’s world and scandals that happen in the world of books. There were a lot of issues all included in this book and I think there may be some satisfying results for many. This is a book you need to read. I was going to get into all the reasons but that gives away too much of the happenings, so just know that you need to read this!

Rating: 4 stars
