Kurzbeschreibung

When his Uncle Mortimer died and left him Hoxne Grange, the family’s Gilded Age mansion, Tristan Pryce became the second generation of Pryces to serve as a caretaker for the estate, a way station for spirits on their final steps to the afterlife. Tristan is prepared for challenges, though not necessarily from the ghosts he’s seen since childhood. Determined to establish Tristan’s insanity and gain access to his trust fund, his loving relatives hire Dr. Wolf Kincaid and his paranormal researchers, Hellsinger Investigations, to prove the Grange is not haunted.

Skeptic Wolf Kincaid has made it his life’s work to debunk the supernatural. After years of cons and fakes, he can’t wait to reveal the Grange’s ghostly activity is just badly leveled floorboards and a drafty old house. More than a few surprises await him at the Grange, including its prickly, reclusive owner. Tristan Pryce is much less insane and much more attractive than Wolf wants to admit, and when his team releases a ghostly serial killer on the Grange, Wolf is torn between his skepticism and protecting the man he’s been sent to discredit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SO INCREDIBLY FANTASTIC 30. Dezember 2013
Von CCDuke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh, HALLELUJAH! A new series by one of my favorite authors, Rhys Ford. And, this one has ghosts and ghostbusters, with hot men - oh wait, she always has those - crazy characters and a kick-butt mother-in-law. So, sit down, take a load off, do not even think about pulling out your Ouija board, and read 'Fish and Ghosts'. I can guarantee you won't be able to put it down until you're done. (My mouth to God's ears, Rhys)

Tristan Pryce inherited Hoxne Grange from his great-uncle Mortimer, because Tristan could see the ghosts just like Mortimer always could. Hoxne Grange is a way station, so to speak, for spirits on their way to wherever they go. Tristan checks them in, gives them rooms, makes sure everything is taken care of and, basically, Tristan is the hotelier to the spirits. Tristan has seen ghosts since he was a little boy, so that doesn't bother him. The fact his relatives want him declared legally insane so they can get their hands on the mansion, that irritates him. His aunt and uncle go so far as to hire Hellsinger Investigations to investigate, debunk the ghosts, and prove Tristan is a fraud. HA!

Wolf Kincaid is the owner of Hellsinger's and he has a PhD in paranormal psychology. Trust me when I say, Wolf is the most normal in his family. *grins* Oh, and I snorted water through my nose when his full name was revealed, but I digress. It's not that Wolf isn't a believer, it's just he's practically never been proven wrong. Almost everyone who hires them turns out to be committing fraud or it's being done to them. So, you can understand Wolf's mindset when he steps through the door to Hoxne Grange along with his cameraman, Matt, and his technical expert Gidget. Wolf has no idea that the gorgeous proprietor, his shy Wolfhound, his cranky housekeeper, and the ghostly dog who chases a red rubber ball, will change his world forever.

What happens next inside the walls of Hoxne Grange runs the gamut from hysterically funny to I-need-a-cold-shower sexy to oh-my-God-frightening. Matt and Gidget inadvertently awaken a dead ancestor of Matt's and to say she isn't happy is putting it mildly. It also means they have no choice but to believe when they see it with their own eyes. Wolf has to call in help from his mother (I loved her) just to banish the spirit back where she belongs. Wolf and Tristan are oh-holy-hell-hot. The author may worry that she doesn't write a good sex scene, but I'm here to tell her - I needed a cold shower after their rumble.

For many of Rhys' fans, they may be surprised by the lightheartedness of this tale. Don't let it fool you. There may not be murder (or, is there?), but she still finds a way to introduce a darkness and weave it into the light in an almost mystical manner. The author's incredible sense of humor really comes through in this story, and she created one of my all time favorite characters, Mara, the housekeeper:

"'I don't feel the gay. S#%€ I barely can tell I'm gay. How the hell am I supposed to figure out if someone else is? There should be a handshake or something. Worst f%#€£¥? club ever.'
'Better use of profanity.' She nodded approvingly. 'Very natural. Now, talk to me about the doctor and why he makes you pink up like a spanked piglet.'"

I absolutely loved this story. I couldn't get enough of it and I've been bugging the author for when the next one is coming out. Rhys Ford has a gift for the ridiculous and she can make me laugh and scream all in the same moment. That, my friends, is a true storyteller.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I expect better from this writer. 1. Januar 2014
Von R.Parklane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Compared to the writer's other works especially Black Dog Blue, this is a disappointment. The two main guys lack depth of character and chemistry. Wolf is the usual smirking alpha and Tristan is the usual sheltered geeky beautiful blond virgin. And speaking of blond, the writer's constant reference to Tristan as "the blond" just irks this reader. The guys' almost instant love thing is yawningly boring, starting with the usual sexual/lustful arousal musings/references littered about. And when they get to their first sex it dragged on for 350+ locations, the second sex scene occupying one whole chapter. Thankfully there were only 2 major scenes. Their relationship could have been more interesting if their initial hostility towards each other was prolonged without the usual instant attraction/lust thing.

This is easily a 2 stars rating if not for a few refreshing ideas in the plot. Tristan receiving his ghostly guests, the haunted little red ball and the little twist at the end up this one to a 3 stars, a bit of a sympathetic rating because I did like this writer's previous work. Other than that I thought this supernatural plot played out like a B grade haunting movie, the humor attempt during the action scenes falling flat, sometimes coming across forced and foolish. As for the secondary human characters, the het pair of Matt and Gidget are totally unnecessary and annoying as well as irritating with their lovers bantering. I could think of quite a few other mm writers who excel in this kind of story line, Jordan Hawk's excellent Whyborne & Griffin series being one of the few. I really expect better from this writer. Maybe it is suppose to be a comedy but it is nothing memorable in the end.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another must read from Rhys Ford 31. Dezember 2013
Von Jodi Pushkin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Rhys Ford has done it again. Not only has she kept me entranced throughout this book, but she has done it in a genre I do not usually read. Tristan and Wolf are wonderful characters, well rounded, flawed and so hot together. The secondary characters in this story are just as well thought out. Ford dragged me into the plot with ease, even though, like Wolf, I was a skeptic. And, clearly Tristan has great taste in music. I am looking forward to more books in this series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'd give it 6 stars if I could! 5. Januar 2014
Von Michelle Allsop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Remember when they’d do a really funny episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, X-Files, or Supernatural? When the characters got to peel off seventeen layers of angst and snark at each other while they fought the big bad boo-wigglies and you had a great time watching it, well that’s what you get with Fish and Ghosts.

This book manages to bring you complete characters with interesting back stories and lives. They’re smart. They’re funny. Somehow Rhys Ford manages to combine ghastly images and descriptions with banter that’ll make you laugh out loud.

Don’t go into this book for the slash. Go into it for the great characters—including the secondary cast who all have personalities and aren’t simple plot devices. Read it for a kick ass fun story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fish and Ghosts - It's Guaranteed Not To Stink After Three Days 2. Januar 2014
Von L. Horan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
For his entire life, Tristan Pryce has been called crazy. When he was young, he started seeing ghosts in his bedroom, on the streets, and pretty much everywhere he went. His parents had no clue what to do with him and after sending him to every doctor and psychiatrist they could find, they still had no answers. Tristan found his own answers while spending the summers and holidays with his Uncle Mortimer at the family estate Hoxne Grange. You see, Uncle Mortimer could see the ghosts too. Tristan feels like he has finally found somewhere he belongs, a true home. When his uncle dies unexpectedly, Tristan and the rest of the family is shocked to find out that he has inherited Hoxne Grange. With money and the family estate on their mind, his family sets out to prove that Tristan is crazy. They hire Dr. Wolf Kincaid and his team of investigators to prove that Hoxne Grange isn’t haunted and to get control of the family estate.

Dr. Wolf Kincaid has made his name by debunking supposed hauntings with his team at Hellsinger Investigations. There isn’t much that makes Wolf angrier than the cons and fakes that he has revealed over time. When the team arrives at Hoxne Grange, Wolf is shocked to find out that Tristan Pryce not only seems nuttier than a fruitcake, but he is also the hottest thing on two legs that Wolf has seen in a while. He realizes that he is going to have to fight his attraction to the man if he wants to finish this job.

When Wolf and his team finish setting up their equipment the first night, they head off to bed only to be awoken an hour later to find all their stuff packed up and ready for them to leave. Tristan denies knowing anything about it, but Wolf is still skeptical. However, after seeing more inexplicable happenings, Wolf just might have to admit this one might not be a fraudulent haunting. When two members of the team inadvertently release a homicidal ghost, Wolf and Tristan have to start working together to save Tristan’s home.

As more truths are revealed by Wolf and Tristan, the two men begin to fall in love, and that pushes Wolf to reveal more about his life and family to Tristan. They are going to have to have faith in one another and fight with everything they have to save Hoxne Grange and their relationship.

Rhys Ford has once again demonstrated her talent. This is a completely different book from anything she has published before and I am completely hooked. The descriptions in this book were simply amazing and really, I could sit here and wax poetically about the reasons I couldn’t put this book down and had to finish it in one sitting. Or, I could just say dayum that was an awesome read. There were ghosts, some good and some not so good, there was a hot leggy blond and a six foot four bear of a man who couldn’t get enough of said leggy blond. But really, this book should be at the top of your TBR pile and if it isn’t, you will feel left out when everyone else is raving about it. Oh and the best part, it’s just the first of the series, so there will be more in this universe and I for one cannot wait.
