Summary

Bright and beautiful, Cassidy Barlow is one of Marionville’s new breed of movers and shakers. Outspoken on political and social issues, Cass draws a lot of media attention, and knows how to use it. Out and proud, Cass makes no apologies for who he is, or who he wants – and he wants Dylan Donoghy. The only thing is, from where Cass stands, Dylan seems to be involved with two different men. 
Coming out. The most difficult phrase in Dylan Donoghy’s vocabulary. He’s made it this far in life with only his closest friends knowing he’s gay. Dylan has a good reason for that to change – his deepening attraction to Cassidy Barlow. It doesn’t come easy, but Dylan takes a few first steps out of the closet. It’s his only choice if he wants to be with Cass, even though he knows Cass has some secrets of his own. 
Every man has a private past, and an unwritten future. What he won’t confess stands between the two.  
* * * * * 
His hand gripped my shoulders again. His amber gaze drilled into mine. “Just so I don’t step in it, Dylan, how many of them have you slept with? And don’t lie to me.” 
I fought back against of wave of anger. How dare he imply I’d not tell him the truth? Being astute, he knew he’d pissed me off. I saw the apology in his eyes as he touched his fingertips to my lips. 
“That didn’t come out right, Dylan.” 
“ Apology accepted. Before today, I might have told you it was none of your business, but now I think you should know. We’re no longer intimate, but I have a very close, special relationship with both Travis and Tyler. I’m very happy for them that they both found a partner.” 
“That’s what I figured out Friday night when they spent all that time running in and out of an area marked ‘private’. Especially Templeton.” 
“Don’t test me too often, Cass. I don’t like it.” I spoke sharper than intended, but he needed to know my boundaries. “There’s a lot of space between your age and mine. Be careful not to judge until you get to where I am.” 
Those restless hands of his skimmed along my sides. “I’m not being judgmental, I swear. I just needed to know what the dynamics are between you and them so I don’t put both feet in my mouth.” 
“Okay. I get it. And for what it’s worth, all four of them, especially Travis, is rooting for you.” 
“Really? He’s in my corner, is he?” Cass tucked his fingers under my belt and tugged. I levered my weight off the door and stepped past him, capturing his hand to pull him into the casual space I used for informal gatherings.  
“He’s using tough love on me when it comes to you, so don’t be shocked, or surprised, at his little quips. Have a seat.” 
Cass eased down on the love seat and patted the spot beside him. I ignored him, and went to the bar. “What would you like to drink?” 
“Ginger ale?” 
I nodded and poured two, handing his to him with an apology it didn’t come in a brandy snifter as I settled in beside him. I stopped him when he moved to put his arm around me. 
“You’re killing me here, Dylan.” 
“No, I’m not.” I sipped my drink. “Cass, I don’t want to make a misstep with you. I know what you want tonight, but what do you want next week? Or next month? Christ, what do I want next week?” 
He leaned back and watched me with those amber eyes. His cool, even regard gave little indication of his thoughts. Cass downed his drink in three fast swallows, then swirled the ice around in the bottom of the empty glass. 
“Do you always think everything to death, Dylan?”

    I loved the book all of the way through. Such interesting women from all walks of life with so many different ways of living. I have never, ever read a book with a professional grave robber. And the ending was so up lifting and warm. Angharad Fatin, Chesapeake, Virginia 
     
     
     
      
    I am not one for violence, but there is a part in hear where some serious butt kicking takes place and I was very happy about it. In fact I laughed. And I liked the way things ended up at the end with who ended up with you. Carrie Kacey, Anaheim, California 
     
      
    Great read. I had a two hour flight returning from the holidays and this book made two hours seem like 10 minutes. I didn´t even order a beer on the plane. My mind and emotions were too involved. Thank you Olivia Hampshire. Parnel Kylee, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 
     
     
      
    I had never read Olivia Hampshire before. I bought this book on the subway on the way to work. I really didn´t feel like going to work anyway. The storyline was so good that I just took the subway back home and called in sick. Then I bought the 18 book collection and didn´t leave the house all weekend. Fabulous!

    A collection of nine madcap stories following the wayfaring translator and amateur sleuth Cassandra Reilly around the globe in search of her next great mysteryLesbian translator and part-time detective Cassandra Reilly has two thrilling investigations under her belt: the case of a missing person in Barcelona and that of a dead spa-owner in Transylvania. In this humorous and engrossing collection, Cassandra is hard at work in some of the world’s most picturesque locales, including Maui, the English moors, and the Icelandic coast.Among the vast assortment of misdeeds she’s called upon to investigate—most of which take place within the literary world—Cassandra finds ample opportunity to exercise her trademark wit and eye for irony. From “Murder at the International Feminist Book Fair,” in which the exploits of a mudslinging women’s magazine lead to a death on the floor of the convention, to “An Expatriate Death,” about a local Mexican writer who appropriates Cassandra’s identity for a character in his novel—and then promptly kills off the character—The Death of a Much-Travelled Woman is another showcase of the intrepid translator’s zest not only for globetrotting, but for wandering smack into the middle of the most unusual crimes.The Death of a Much-Travelled Woman is the third book in the Cassandra Reilly Mystery series, which begins with Gaudí Afternoon and Trouble in Transylvania, and concludes with The Case of the Orphaned Bassoonists.
