Books by Gregory Ashe

A-
Indirection

Note: This review contains spoilers for the previous Borealis Investigations series. North and Shaw are back in Indirection, the first book in Gregory Ashe’s new four part series Borealis: Without a Compass, which sees them moving into a new phase of their lives – as both romantic partners an ...

A
The Same End

No one writes AWKWARD, PAINFUL, HILARIOUS, CRINGE-INDUCING, AWESOME, SWEET, TENDER, SEXY dialogue as well as Gregory Ashe.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wince...and then you'll wish the book was longer. So, is The Same End good, phenomenal, or what?  Yes, it is.  It’s brilliant and feat ...

A
Yet a Stranger

A
The Same Place

The Same Place is book two in Gregory Ashe’s The Lamb and the Lion series about a Utah-based wildlife vet and a con man – an odd couple if ever there was one – who, in The Same Breath, teamed up to solve a murder.  Like its predecessor, this book is a perfectly balanced combination of myster ...

A
They Told Me I Was Everything

I foolishly start every Ashe novel thinking he can’t possibly top his last book.  I finish each one and then decide it’s my new favorite.  They Told Me I Was Everything is another winner, and the slow burn romance between the principal characters is challenging and frustrating, and wonderful a ...

Stray Fears

Stray Fears is another compelling story from the pen of Gregory Ashe that once again showcases his talent for creating strong, clever plots and engaging but flawed characters who exhibit considerable growth as individuals throughout the course of the story.  As in most of his output, we’ve got an ...

A
The Same Breath

In honour of one of the principal characters in this book, I'm going to start this review with some statistics.  Gregory Ashe’s The Same Breath is the fifth of his books reviewed in 2020 to get a DIK review (he’s received nine since February 2019).  It’s also the eighth book he’s published ...

A Friend in the Dark

The first book in a projected series of four in the Arden & O’Callaghan Mysteries, A Friend in the Dark is an enjoyable introduction to our two quirky protagonists as well as an entertaining – if not especially complex - murder mystery.  Gregory Ashe and C.S Poe kind of snuck up on us with ...

A-
The Keeper of Bees

Emery Hazard has pretty much everything under control. He and his fiancé, John-Henry Somerset, are more in love than ever, despite the stress of wedding preparations hanging over them. His business as a private investigator is growing. He’s even enjoying time with his growing circle of friends. T ...

A-
Wayward

Wayward, book four in the Hazard and Somerset: A Union of Swords series, takes place five weeks after the events of the previous book, Transactional Dynamics.  As anyone who has read our reviews of these books/this series will know, none of them really works as a standalone; each Hazard and Somerse ...
