TBR reviewer: Luta Wolf
McCloud is set to marry his lover, Francois. Friends and family are coming from
all over the world and just as the intrepid pair gets ready to say I do, they
don't. A mysterious woman shows up at the service claiming to be the long lost
wife of& not formerly single and straight Francois but Mingo!
Mingo is stunned. Not the least because he's never dated a woman, much less
married one. The whole family's now in an uproar, especially when the shady lady
produces wedding pictures and love letters allegedly written by Mingo. He and
Francois are determined to unravel the plot. For Mingo, the shocks don't stop
coming. Seems he has a trail of busted female hearts behind him, as well as some
serious grifting. What the heck is going on? Is he the victim of a conspiracy,
or is something else afoot? Are parts of him awake when he is sleeping and doing
things he knows nothing about?
Note to readers: This title is Number 6 in the Mingo McCloud series,
but can easily be read as a stand-alone book.
until a surprise from his past catches up with him. Now the wedding is on the
back burner until they can solve the mystery of a woman claiming to be Mrs. McCloud.
This is the sixth book in the series and labeled as a stand alone. Though it
can, I wouldn’t recommend it as such. The book lacked the emotional character
connection and was too fast paced for it to be a stand alone. Even though there
were parts where I felt slightly confused because I didn’t have an in-depth
knowledge of the back story, it’s a fun and witty read. There are a lot of
characters in the novel but rather than take away from the plot, they added to
it. They made the dialoged really dynamic and interesting. The passion and
relationship between Francois and Mingo is a combination of playful, hot, and
funny. Mingo's so very smart but not only comes across as goofy but is often described as such. Despite Francois being the more domineering one, he comes off as a big kid who uses his charm to get what he wants. While the mystery isn’t really a mystery all the action made it exciting. My favorite thing though was that I never stopped laughing. I highly recommend this book to those that enjoy humor, romance, and action.
