All That Remains by RJ Scott Blog Tour

Federal Agent Lucas Beaumont has an agenda—get himself assigned to the case of the apparent serial murders at Lancaster Falls, find out who the murderer is, and then lay the ghosts that haunt his grandfather to rest. In the midst of a horrific murder investigation, the only peace he gets is from simple moments in a warm kitchen, talking to hotel owner, Josh. Attraction to the easygoing man is something he didn’t expect; in doing so, he opens himself to hurt, but at the same time, he begins to fall in love.

Josh is struggling to keep the Falls Hotel, even with every cent he has invested in its upkeep. The one thing keeping him above water is the not entirely legal work he does on the side—a steady income that not even his son knows about. When the FBI takes over his hotel for the duration of the Hell’s Gate serial killer case, Josh is faced with the real possibility that Lucas will not only discover his secret but also steal his heart.

When tragedy hits Josh and his son, and when it seems all hope is lost, can Lucas rescue them both?

The final installment of the Lancaster Falls Trilogy is go gripping. Solving the mystery of the killer of the 30-year-old remains becomes even more pressing as prominent members of the town are being violently murdered and their long-held secrets exposed. The tension builds bit by bit, our heroes are in danger, and eventually all the pieces fall into place and our killer is revealed. And all I can say is I did NOT see that coming. And I love that I didn't guess who the killer was and that I was on edge as I turned the pages. So good.

Among the fantastic mystery/suspense story there is also a lovely romance. FBI agent Lucas comes to town to assist in the murder investigation and stays at Josh's motel. The attraction between them is instant, and sexy glances and late-night conversations turn into kisses and more. With so much going on in the town they have each other to turn to for support.

Once again, RJ Scott mixes murder and romance and comes up with a great story. While I was excited to get to the end to find out who did it, I was sad that my time with people of Lancaster Falls was over, but I know this is a series that will be on my re-read list.

This has been a really excellent series – you absolutely have to read it in order, or truly you will not get the underlying story at all! Thankfully, things finally come together in this installment, and RJ Scott has really come up with a complex and intriguing mystery, with a rather mind-blowing reveal at the end. I found it to be peeled away at exactly the right pace, and with each layer giving another possibility, until finally we get to the heart of the evil that has been going on all too long in Lancaster Falls!

The romance is also very enjoyable, with FBI special agent Lucas falling for hotel owner, father, and Oops! white hat hacker, Josh. Lots of complications with this being anything more than a short-term fling, and yet it is a very sweet and smooth journey most of the way. We also get to catch up with the relationships which formed in earlier books, and see how all their lives have improved thanks to having a stable and loving home life.

I would definitely recommend this series, and now you can read it all, cliffhanger free.

3.5 stars

This is a satisfying conclusion to the Lancaster Falls Trilogy. The third book focuses on hotel owner Josh and FBI agent Lucas. With the body count rising in Lancaster Falls, Lucas provides Sawyer’s team with the federal assistance necessary to finally get the answers the town needs.

I will admit that I was a little bit reluctant to continue with this trilogy after the slightly bizarre events in the second book. The third book is only slightly more plausible, but it is an exciting read that does manage to provide readers with closure. This is probably the goriest book of the three with grizzly new murders complicating Sawyer’s cold case investigation. The pieces do eventually fit together but my reactions remain mixed. Oddly, the whodunnit is both too obvious and not completely credible. It’s ultimately a satisfying, suspenseful read – if readers don’t think too hard about various details.

I always struggle a bit with romantic suspense – the idea of two leads falling for each other while chasing a serial murderer is always a little bit difficult for me to process. I did enjoy the romance in this book. Josh and Lucas make sense together, and while the focus of the book remains on the investigation, there are enough heated moments between these two that readers will be cheering them on to their happily ever after.
