Miro Jones is living the life: he’s got his exciting, fulfilling job as a US deputy marshal, his gorgeous Greystone in suburban Chicago, his beloved adopted family, and most importantly, the man who captured his heart, Ian Doyle. Problem is, Ian isn’t just his partner at work—Ian’s a soldier through and through. That commitment takes him away from Miro, unexpectedly and often, and it’s casting a shadow over what could be everything Miro could ever dream of.
Work isn’t the same without Ian. Home isn’t the same, either, and Miro’s having to face his fears alone… how to keep it together at the office, how to survive looming threats from the past, and worst of all, how to keep living without Ian’s rock-solid presence at his side. His life is tied up in knots, but what if unknotting them requires something more permanent? What would that mean for him and Ian? Miro’s stuck between two bad choices, and sometimes the only way to get out of the knot is to hold tight to your lifeline and pull.
Mary Calmes is back with the third installment for the Marshals series. and you better strap yourself in because it's a roller coaster read! Seriously the gamut of emotions that I experience during this book ran from elation to devastation. The action is non-stop from the first page to the last.
We have the best cameo appearances and the introduction of some new characters and all the old favorites we love. Calmes builds her worlds with characters that are real and memorable, that when you walk away from a book they feel like family. There is action, and a bad guy or two and some really intense, made me bawl me eyes out, scenes. There are funny and goofy interactions with the Marshals and Miro's friends and let's throw in a holiday just for shits and giggles.
But let's face it...I read these books for Miro and Ian . The development of their relationship over the course of this series, is what keeps me coming back. Each of them has grown individually but what happens between them is the cornerstone of these stories. I love to read the journey that these two are on and if Mary keeps writing them I will keep reading them!
If you want a thrilling read with well thought out characters and an intriguing plot line then Tied Up In Knots and the Marshals series is one for you bookshelf.
