LGBTQ, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
Adam Hoale owns a construction company called Hoale Construction. When he finds an eye-opening surprise in the walls of a house he's flipping, and a libido flaring surprise standing on the lawn, he's willing to do the right thing with the surprise in the wall while entertaining lusty thoughts about the surprise on the lawn.
But as the world finds out what he's discovered, and his new boy toy seems to be keeping too many secrets to make a relationship a reality, Adam soon realizes he may just get flipped himself if he's not careful.

Poor Adam Hoale. Not only does he have a rather unfortunate name which leads to a few rather amusing comments, he has an unfortunate habit of getting involved in some rather dangerous situations.Adam Hoale owns Hoale Construction, a company that specialises in buying old, down and out properties and 'flipping ' them, basically meaning doing them u and renovating them for sale.
All Adam Hoale wants to do is 'flip' the new property he's just purchased and hopefully make a good profit. But that idea all goes down the toilet when a dead body is discovered walled up in one of the rooms of the house. And a gorgeous and somehow lost looking young man called Sean standing on the lawn of the property with a yearning look on his face doesn't make Adam's life any easier. That and hearing that his old lover and well known Hollywood heart throb, Dirk Williams , is back in town. What's a red blooded man to do?
Things get exciting and dangerous for Adam and between the attack on his libido and the fact someone wants him dead, he doesn't have much time for much else..
I really enjoyed this quirky, fast paced, mystery story from Declan Sands. I liked the two main characters, Adam and Dirk and I just loved cranky pixie Maddy, Adam's business partner, and the adorable, camp twinky persona of Mink, realtor extraordinnaire.
With supporting characters like Zeke, Bobby, detective Craig Clandestine aka CC and of course the cute and extremely loveable dog, Walter, it was a wonderful well written romp of detective like proportions, steamy in the bedroom/out the bedroom interludes between Adam and Dirk and a seething tide of emotional baggage and secrets that threaten to spill out and endanger everyone involved. I definitely want to read the rest in the series.
