runninghot 250Two of HelenKay Dimon’s recent releases, Too Far Gone (contemporary, Berkley, December, 2014, $4.27, 249pp) and Running Hot (romantic suspense, Avon, December 2014, $1.99e, 22pp) are fantastic romances that have something in common - very strong relationships between male characters of the series. Ones that are actually rather funny.


Too Far Gone is the final book in Dimon’s Hanover Brothers series - a series about brothers who have to deal with the fallout of their con man father’s long years of fraud. In the first three books, the three Hanover brothers inherit a home in Sweet Water, Oregon and attempt to make a life there. Unfortunately, the people of the town are not thrilled to have Charlie Hanover’s sons around. The appearance of Walker Reeves, an FBI agent, is an added insult especially when it is revealed that he is actually another of Charlie’s children.
