Subtle Blood (2021) KJ Charles (The Will Darling Adventures)

Subtle BloodSet in London ~1924

Will Darling is finally somewhat comfortable in his relationship with Kim Secretan, even if they continue to have to hide they are more than just acquaintances. Will is also finally doing a decent job with the bookstore he inherited–due in part to the time Kim spent helping in the shop after the events of the previous book.

Kim may be an accomplished liar, but there are things that I see in him.

“You can’t expect me to take your word for things when I could work myself into a frenzy about them instead.”

“Any light on the horizon?”

“Only that cast by everything on fire.”

“I don’t know why you have a ’phone when you hate answering it so much.”

Because it’s expected, of course.

The problem is that Kim’s brother has been accused of murder, and if Kim doesn’t find him not guilty, then Kim could end up the heir. And absolutely no one wants that.

“Or will he be tried as a peer?”

“He will not. It’s a courtesy title, so he’ll face a jury of twelve ordinary people, and all the prosecution will have to do is put him on the stand and let him talk.”

This feels like the final book in the series, with both Kim and Will settled into themselves and what they are going to do with their lives.

The only thing I’m not 100% sure about this story is how things ended between Kim and his father.

Otherwise, I very much enjoyed this series.
