Femme Faux Fatale by Susan Laine

Mystery. Murder. Men in silk stockings. Hollywood nights are heating up.

Hardboiled Los Angeles PI Cain Noble is hired by wealthy and gorgeous Camille Astor to find her husband and a priceless work of art, both of which have disappeared.

At the nightclub owned by Mr. Astor, Cain encounters the mesmerizing Lily Lavender, who has the body of a goddess and the sultry voice of an angel—but is really a young man named Riley who attracts trouble like a magnet.

What’s a private dick in the vein of LA’s bygone era and a cross-dressing burlesque starlet to do when faced with the hidden decadence and lethal dangers of the Hollywood Hills? They have their work cut out for them because they haven’t even scratched the surface of an elaborate scheme more twisted than anyone could ever have imagined.

What a fun little romantic adventure. While set in the here and now with a modern m/m romance, the story has an old-world Hollywood feel to it. The burlesque, the glamor, the private investigator searching for a missing husband, and even the origins of the “bad guys” give us a nod to the 1940s. The author did a really good job mixing old and the new.

On the relationship side of things, Cain and Riley are well matched and they have good chemistry. I did find the move from lust to love between them a bit rushed, but it was expected. On the mystery side of things, all I can say is I did not see the twists and turns coming and where the mystery ended up was a complete surprise. I loved that.

I really had a good time reading Femme Faux Fatale. If you are looking for a thoroughly entertaining m/m mystery give Femme Faux Fatale a read.

SUSAN LAINE, an award-winning, multipublished author of LGBTQ erotic romance and a Finnish native, was raised by the best mother in the world, who told her daughter time and again that she could be whatever she wanted to be. The spark for serious writing and publishing kindled when Susan discovered the gay erotic romance genre. One of her books, Monsters Under the Bed, won the 2014 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Paranormal Romance.

Anthropology is Susan’s formal education, but she has set her long-term sights on becoming a full-time writer. Susan enjoys hanging out with her sister, two nieces, and friends in movie theaters, bookstores, and parks. Her favorite pastimes include pop music, action flicks, and doing the dishes, while a few of her dislikes are sweating hot summer days, tobacco smoke, and purposeful prejudice.
