Flynn Ambrose ist nach dem Tod seines Partners Alan völlig gebrochen. Um sich von seinem Schmerz abzulenken, kümmert er sich um den Nachlass seines verstorbenen Großonkels, der ein Museum voll mit Kuriositäten geführt hat. Darunter befindet sich auch ein antiker Spiegel, in dem jedoch mehr steckt, als Flynn auf den ersten Blick vermutet. Ein Geist scheint mit dem Spiegel verbunden zu sein und er macht Flynns Umgebung unsicher. Zusammen mit seinem Untermieter Kirk macht sich Flynn nun daran, das Rätsel um den Geist zu lösen.

THE HAUNTED HEART ist wieder eine spannende und unterhaltsame Novelle aus dem Haus Lanyon. Flynn, aus dessen Warte die Geschehnisse geschildert werden, ist ein sehr sympathischer und lebensechter Hauptcharakter, der in seinem jungen Leben schon einiges hinter sich hat. Er versucht, sich so gut wie möglich mit seiner neuen Situation zu arrangieren, was ihm etwas erleichtert wird, als er Kirk näher kennen lernt. Kirk hat ebenfalls ein bewegtes Leben geführt, über das wir jedoch nur ansatzweise etwas erfahren, und er hat mir ebenfalls gut gefallen. Die langsame Annäherung zwischen Flynn und Kirk ist in meinen Augen realistisch dargestellt und hat mich überzeugt.
Die Handlung von THE HAUNTED HEART hat mir gut gefallen. Die emotionalen Entwicklungen zwischen Flynn und Kirk und der Handlungsstrang rund um den Geist halten sich in etwa die Waage und die Spannung kommt auf keinen Fall zu kurz. Wie fast immer in seinen Büchern baut Josh Lanyon auch her eine Prise Humor in den Plot ein, was mich sehr gefreut hat. Nicht ganz so glücklich war ich dagegen mit dem Ende der Novelle, das mir doch sehr abgehackt erscheint.

What can I say, it’s Josh Lanyon. The writing is perfect, the pacing of the story well done, not one boring or rushed moment. But, because it is Josh Lanyon, both MCs are his favorite types. The more average one with a serious condition, in this case Flynn, who has tried to kill himself after his longtime partners death. And he still intends to do so after the year that he had promised his parents not to attempt suicide is over. On the other hand exmilitary Kirk, a man with his own problems, but determined to live on. He is the shoulder for Flynn to lean on. They work well together and have a good chemistry.

Now add a house full of antiques and one mirror who produces a fierce and angry ghost. Together they solve the mystery and become friends in the process.

This is the first book in a series so don’t expect the relationship to develop as far as you want it to do. But – as said before – it’s Josh Lanyon, it’s quality writing. Every time I pick one of his stories I know I’m going to love it. 4,5 stars rounded.

I've been pining over having another great series to sink my dirty paws into after the final installment of the Adrien English series... some of the books written in between where nice but none met my (admittedly) high expectations after Adrien English. Fatal Shadows (The Adrien English Mysteries)

Now there's "The Haunted Heart" - I would assume four stories, following the seasons - and yes, Josh Lanyon's back.

Everything I love about his writing skills - the great characters, the feel he manages to transport, the heroes with all their flaws and each with his own set of problems... it's all there.

What can I say? I just loved this book and I want more! ... and all of this despite the fact that I'm not into the paranormal...

HASH(0x92b5351c) von 5 Sternen Another Wonderful Book By My Favorite Author 28. August 2013
Von ChinaBlue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What a wonderful start to this new series. I loved the subtle allusion to Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" in the title/theme of this book/series - but then Josh has shown us, in various books, that he has an extensive handle on classical music. I chuckled at the humor interspersed throughout the book - sometimes snarky, sometimes gentle - but always most apropos to a particular situation between the main characters - a hallmark of his writing. And while I do not normally seek out paranormal stories, this little gem (and presumably those to follow) gave me much reading pleasure and made me really and truly want to believe in ghosts and troubled spirits and things that go bump in the night. And finally, I would be completely remiss if I didn't mention what a kick I got out of seeing the appearance of Stephen and Mark from his "I Spy" series, a special favorite of mine. Hopefully we will see more of them in future books - I have a strong suspicion that Mark, in particular, could help Kirk with some of the demons that seem to haunt him.

There is one very bleak pronouncement by Flynn that wrenched my heart and by the end of the book I was not certain that this issue had been resolved. Most likely it has not and I look forward to how Josh, and his two MCs, deal with this in future books.

All in all - another outstanding piece of writing by my favorite author!

HASH(0x930585c4) von 5 Sternen I Loved Flynn and Kirk 28. August 2013
Von Thomas R Patchen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Josh Lanyon's books are a pleasure to read... the dialogue flows so naturally and the storyline is always compelling. While I normally do not care for paranormal/fantasy books, I'm always happy to suspend belief for Josh Lanyon because he does not take it over the top. Once again he is giving us two interesting, quirky, likeable main characters who have real problems and flaws: Flynn and Kirk. They are very different physically but have a strong emotional connection. Josh Lanyon does a great job with slowly building their friendship and attraction to one another in a realistic way... also showing us their vulnerabilities. I especially love the way he describes facial expressions or posture to let us know how the character really feels in a situation.... and Josh knows just the right words to use to pull my heartstrings at the right moment. And as always, I love the humor that is off beat and interjected at the most inappropriate time... Ha! Rarely do I go back and reread passages in a book.. but I did with this one... much like I did with "Come Unto These Yellow Sands" (which I've read three times... a first for me!). My only complaint... I want more and longer!!! (sounds dirty... but you know what I mean!) ... however, I see he has three more books planned in this series, so all I have to say is: "Hurry, Josh!!"

HASH(0x93058420) von 5 Sternen All hail the return of Josh Lanyon. 29. August 2013
Von Ulysses Dietz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Ah, how nice to spend time in Josh Lanyon's mind again.

A romance in the old sense of the word - a story about the human heart, not about hookups turning into love along the way.

The first of a series (I'm guessing a four part series, given the title and the setting), "The Haunted Heart: Winter" is both a satisfying work of romantic literature AND a great set-up for what (I certainly hope) will come next.

Flynn could be the protagonist in a sequel to a YA novel where the Happy Ever After goes bad. A year earlier, at twenty-five, Flynn's lifelong friend, lover and soulmate died suddenly. All we really know at first is that Flynn has been scarred so deeply by that loss that his family fears for him.

Kirk, on the other hand, is and remains more of a mystery. Now thirty-nine, a loner and a writer, Kirk holed up two years ago in Flynn's great-uncle Winston's decaying Victorian mansion to hide from whatever horrors his military past left him with. Flynn joins him amidst the clutter of the late Winston's obsessive collecting, hoping to find solace in cataloging the treasures that have become his legacy.

The most important thing we learn about Kirk is that he cannot turn his back when he sees another human being in danger or distress. And Flynn, so far as Kirk can tell, is both. The apparent appearance of a ghost in a huge gilt mirror brings these two self-isolated men together; at first against their wills, but gradually more and more willingly.

Lanyon is spare and witty in his writing. His imagery is beautiful, but not lavish. He gives you what you need to know where you are, and nothing more. His people, however, are more richly drawn - although he begins with the most delicate of sketches and gradually reveals more and more detail, until you have a fully realized picture, flaws and all.

Haunted Heart: Winter is a journey, sometimes literally, but mostly figuratively, as these two men take the first tentative steps out of their individual darkness and into each other's light. It is a ghost story in which the ghost is hardly more tortured than the two men she needs to set her free.

I hope Josh is almost done with part two. His fans are legion, and they're waiting.

HASH(0x9305857c) von 5 Sternen I can't wait for Spring 12. September 2013
Von @boxtersushi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Josh Lanyon is one of my favorite storytellers.. his books feed me like a well prepared meal - delicious and fortifying with a delightful surprise at the end. He knows how to temper his writing with a restraint that leaves me sated, yet yearning for more. The Haunted Heart: Winter, did exactly that. It's beautifully crafted, eerie and spooky enough to fulfill the promise of the title, and the connection that begins its slow burn between Flynn and Kirk, left me hungry for more. I'm definitely looking forward to Spring.

HASH(0x930583d8) von 5 Sternen Lanyon is Brilliant 28. August 2013
Von Reece Notley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Back after a hiatus with a stunning novella, Lanyon once again paints fantastically romantic and eerie pictures with his words. The plot in this book is solid and the characters, Flynn and Kirk, are both at odds and entangled. This is the first of four novellas for these characters and the poetry of their relationship is wonderful. I highly recommend this book.
