Mann Hunt: 1 (The Declan Hunt Mysteries) by Peter E. Fenton

"Peter never ceases to amaze me with his enthralling stories of adventure and suspense, and we’re just getting started with the series!" Tatted_book_freak loved the opener of The Declan Hunt Mysteries, Mann Hunt.

From the blurb:

How far would you be willing to go to finish the job?

Declan Hunt is having a bad week. His kidnapping case is showing little progress, his office assistant has left him on short notice and his latest investigation has left him literally battered and bruised. But
things change when he hires twenty-four-year-old Charlie Watts to help out at the office. They form an unlikely partnership while trying to solve two seemingly unrelated cases whose threads begin to weave together when the missing person’s case turns to murder.

The investigation takes them from the dark alleys, gay bars and bath houses of Calgary to the richest parts of the city during the world-famous Calgary Stampede.

But will they be able to discover who the killer is before another life is lost? And will Declan be able to solve the mystery of his relationship with Charlie, who is clearly attracted to him—especially since it is evident that the attraction is becoming mutual?

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Mystery, suspense, murder, and romance...I’m in love!! I felt like I was part of Declan's Investigator, trying to pick up on each little clue, only to get flung in an opposite direction every time I thought I solved the case. And what a surprise that ending was, completely unexpected! 

I'm not one for slow-burn romances and Mann Hunt is definitely a slow, long drawn out one.  But, the mystery, sexual tension, and humor kept me on the edge, waiting for the building to crumble. 

Declan and Charlie make for great partners in crime. Declan is a natural, especially with his history on the force, but Charlie was built to investigate. Their rapport stood out to everyone near them except each other. I cannot wait for the next book, because things are going to become hot and steamy!!
