Review: Snowcroft Safehouse (Snowcroft #2) by Christi Snow

A year ago Declan Jasper was entertaining sold-out arena crowds as the lead singer of Black Rainbows. But that came to an explosive end when the band got caught up in a criminal cover-up, one that ended with the entire band dead. At least that’s what everyone is supposed to think.

Now, Dex is hiding in plain sight, working as the school band director in a sleepy little mountain resort town while under the protection of a hard-nosed FBI agent. Instead of eyeliner and black leather, he now wears glasses and corduroy. Instead of having sexy coeds—both male and female—throw themselves into his bed, he’s dealing with teenage angst and grumpy parents.

At the top of his troubles list is Kelsey Walker, a junior high bundle of rare musical talent in the form of one confused, messed-up adolescent. Dex figures the problem comes from her broken home and wants to help. But when he meets her father, sexy bar-owner, Jack Walker, he realizes that instead of helping he’s probably just bringing more trouble and danger to their door.

Dex has to stay alive until the trial to bring his bandmates’ murderers to justice, but can he do that if it means sacrificing his own happily ever after?

Christi has taken her fans back to Snowcoft, New Mexico with this second installment of her Snowcroft series. We know Jack from the first book as the owner of Logger’s bar and restaurant. Finn Alexander is the new guy in town. Not only is he new but he has more secrets than one can possibly keep hidden.

Finn is still trying to get used to being Finn Alexander, middle school band teacher. He was born Declan Jasper and died as Dex the lead singer of the Black Rainbows. One of his bandmates made an enemy of a mob family. Dex is the only living witness to those events and he wants to see the person responsible for that murderous rage pay. For that to happen he has to survive to testify against the people responsible for so drastically devastating his life. Finn’s new protector decides that the best place to hide Dex is Snowcroft.

The closet is where Jack has been all his life. He has come to terms that he is gay, even though he tried marriage as was expected of him. Jack is now a single father, trying to do what’s best for his twelve year old daughter. He believes that staying in the closet is what is best for Kelsey. He’s okay with that too. Jack has been in Snowcroft long enough to know that there are not enough eligible gay men in Snowcroft to change his mind. All it takes is one look at the new guy in town and Jack starts thinking life outside of the closet may have some definite advantages.

The majority of this book allowed for Jack and Finn’s trail to happily ever after to take center stage. The suspense aspect didn’t come to the forefront until nearly the end. Once Finn’s identity began to unravel things began to move along quickly as Finn fought to make it out the other side with Jack still by his side.

I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the next book. I want to know more about Law, Finn’s FBI protector. Readers are briefly introduced to Law in Snowcroft Lost. He has an even larger role in Snowcroft Safehouse. His past and his current healing guarantees him a great story.
Gay Romance
