About the Author
Maggie Kavanagh writes gay romances that explore flawed, human characters finding love. A recent Yankee transplant to Los Angeles, her heart still resides in New England. She went to graduate school for English literature and reads and writes voraciously, whenever she can get a moment alone. You can find her in the wee morning hours typing away with coffee at hand and cat in lap, happily embodying the romance writer cliché. While she focuses mainly on contemporary romance, don’t be surprised if a historical or supernatural tale slips into the mix, as she’s always eager to discover different genres. More fiction is forthcoming soon, so stay tuned!

More romance and mystery in Stonebridge

Inner Sanctum continues Nathan and Sam's story which began in Double Indemnity and opens up a new investigation after a series of arson attacks in Stonebridge.
Though I think Double Indemnity has a slight edge on this sequel, I still enjoyed Maggie Kavanagh's writing, the strong personalities she creates, and particularly her new characters like Damon Blake.
In writing this as a sequential series, it means that Maggie Kavanagh is able to evolve Nathan and Sam's relationship, developing some of the seeds that were planted during Double Indemnity.
Sam and Nathan have now been together for six months. Sam is committed, but still reconciling himself with Nathan's past sexual experiences.
Whilst the fact that Sam is unable to talk to Nathan about his desires is an indication of the trust issues between them, I do not think this conforms with the idea of Sam that we have - the confident journalist who confronts murderers.
I think Sam and Nathan's gentle experimentation with different sexual roles is interesting, though not necessary to the plot, and I prefer the vanilla moments between them.
Around the couple's relationship obstacles and reluctance to trust one another, Maggie Kavanagh writes an intriguing mystery. We spend most of the story confident of the perpetrator's identity, only for Maggie Kavanagh to laugh in our faces at Inner Sanctum's explosive conclusion.
Although I had a few small issues with the book I am really excited to see what is next for Nathan, Sam and Stonebridge in Blind Spot.
