If you're looking for a cozy M/M mystery, "Truth Will Out" will make you want to immediately cuddle a mug of cocoa, start up the fireplace and grab your Kindle.
When Jonathan finds his beloved uncle Dominic dead by the hearth of the familial manor house, he suspects this is not an accident. And with the assistance of buff gorgeous Mike, a former copper and current owner of the pub, he soon finds there are suspects aplenty in the village of Merrychurch. Despite the perpetual annoyance of DI Gorland who has been assigned the case and disdains their meddling, they sift through the clues, encounter some good red herrings, and make some startling discoveries.
Jonathan is staying in one of the rooms above Mike's pub and they quickly settle into a pleasant domesticity which gently segues into a romance (with no on-page sex, other than Mike and Jonathan cuddling in bed) that is all kinds of wonderful.
The plot held my interest, the pace of the story is just right, the romance between Jonathan and Mike is low-key and perfect, and the resolution of the case is straightforward and satisfying. A strong 4 stars for "Truth Will Out" and I'm already looking forward to reading more about the charming village of Merrychurch and its residents.
