Where Foxes Say Goodnight by Sam Burns

Where Foxes Say Goodnight is a book full of mysteries, a ghost, lots of antique furniture and love. 

From the blurb:

It should have been the start of something wonderful . . .

Max is living the screenwriter dream. He’s not even thirty, he’s just won an Oscar, and he’s dating the gorgeous star of his movie. But after that one magical night, everything crumbles. The movie star dumps him, and his latest screenplay is a blank document that stubbornly refuses to write itself.

So Max decides to disappear into the middle of nowhere, and maybe obscurity. He’s just getting settled into his new life when suddenly someone is trying to kill him.

Gorgeous Gentry Fox seems like he wants to help, but the way he keeps showing up at just the right times is suspicious. Is he the aw-shucks good ol’ boy he seems, or part of the plot to kill Max? Just as importantly, is he single?

Where Foxes Say Goodnight is a paranormal romance featuring one heartbroken screenwriter, one down-on-his-luck hunk, some missing jewels, and a grandmother’s meddling ghost. It’s a standalone novel with a guaranteed HEA.

Angel's Review:

After having a successful launch of his first film, Max feels on top of the world. Until his boyfriend breaks up with him through his lawyer and makes him sign and NDA. After that fiasco, he packs up his life and moves away. He purchases a house, that's more of a mansion, and settles into a quaint,gho small town. All he really needs to focus on is writing his next film and shopping for furniture. Until he wakes up one night with someone trying to kill him. After that, things don't seem as quaint anymore. 

This book was surprising to read. I wasn't expecting the mystery element that was part of the plot line, but I'm glad it was there! The romance between Gentry and Max was albeit a bit of an insta-love situation, but it worked for their characters. It didn't feel rushed or all of a sudden, it just felt natural for them. The writing itself was really great. I thought the background detail was really vivid, and the era of the house came through crystal clear. I adored Nadia's character. She was definitely an unexpected side character, but she brought a lot of life to this story. As did Jon and Joe. I really liked how everyone was, for the most part, really close, seeing as how they live in a small town.

The mystery component was done really well as well. I honestly didn't expect the person who ended up being the bad guy. I had some guesses, but I was wrong. So, that part was also really well done. Sam keeps you guessing and makes you follow along right with their characters. Overall, this is a truly lovely story!
