Heat Trap The Plumber's Mate #3

The wrong secret could flush their love down the drainIt’s been six months since plumber Tom Paretski was hit with a shocking revelation about his family His lover PI Phil Morrison is pushing this as an ideal opportunity for Tom to try to develop his psychic talent for finding things Tom would prefer to avoid the subject altogether but just as he decides to bite the bullet worse pr. 35Here I go again with another book in the Plumbers Mate series While I enjoyed this one a lot than the last I m unsure if I will continue with the series Once again the mystery aspect was a letdown and I m contemplating if Tom and Phil are still worth it Heat Trap gives us Tom and Phil on another case a most lukewarm case When the owner of the Pub they usually freuent asks for their help in stopping a slithering stalker Carey Grant they take the case What they never expected was the slimy stalker to be so slinky and dangerous Along with dealing with the case Tom is also dealing with some personal issues and having a hard time coming to terms with everything Things take a while to get to the point and when it does Tom finds Carey Grant in the cellar of the pub and thus begins the chase to catch a killer or so I thought I m trying to get into this without giving too much away but let s say the story was uite interesting and fun up until the death of Grant Carey and then boom bloody wilted lettuce All the dryness none of the deliciousness The big reveal of the actual killer I felt didn t even have a connection to the story so instead of being surprised I just felt let down So many people going round and round and ending up nowhere Let s talk about Tom I remember loving him in the first book and though he does have his charms and is on his way to crazy town with how he s all in his head I m not here for him any He doesn t take things seriously enough and the way he treated Phil in the end there was just too much He learns something s about Phil s past and jumps the gun by overreacting leaving to do the whole begging thing when it was Tom who should have been apologizing I lost all my love for him as a character with his woe is me attitude Everything is Tom Tom Tom he s a special snowflake I believe for me the series has lost its charms While I remain curious of what will become of Tom and Phil my underlying need seems to be gone Maybe in a while I ll give it another go especially with that cliffi at the end there Toms life is about to get a whole lot of interesting But for now I m calling it uits While I liked this one significantly than the last book and did have some burst out laughing moments I am uite done with being disappointed These mysteries have become children Easter egg hunting
