Originally published in the "Partners in Crime" anthology.
Here's another one I read first back in 2014 but never wrote a review for(who knows why). So, I gave it another re-read and guess what? I still love it! It's a wonderful blend of historical mystery and contemporary romance. Sometimes truths just need to come out even 50 years later. The dynamic between Tim and Jack is wonderful, fun, and a bit heartbreaking at times even if the heartbreaking part is really of their own doing due to lack of communication. Awesome novella that may have been better had it been longer but for this reader it was pretty darn spot on as is.
