Federal Agent Lucas Beaumont has an agenda—get himself assigned to the case of the apparent serial murders at Lancaster Falls, find out who the murderer is, and then lay the ghosts that haunt his grandfather to rest. In the midst of a horrific murder investigation, the only peace he gets is from simple moments in a warm kitchen, talking to hotel owner, Josh. Attraction to the easygoing man is something he didn’t expect; in doing so, he opens himself to hurt, but at the same time, he begins to fall in love.
Josh is struggling to keep the Falls Hotel, even with every cent he has invested in its upkeep. The one thing keeping him above water is the not entirely legal work he does on the side—a steady income that not even his son knows about. When the FBI takes over his hotel for the duration of the Hell’s Gate serial killer case, Josh is faced with the real possibility that Lucas will not only discover his secret but also steal his heart.
When tragedy hits Josh and his son, and when it seems all hope is lost, can Lucas rescue them both?
The final instalment of the “Lancaster Falls trilogy” : Not a standalone at all, obviously.
What a *great conclusion / resolution* of the plague and secrets shadowing the small town of Lancaster Falls and which shattered the lives of many of its inhabitants. All the pieces finally fit together in a dreadful picture. The angst is there but not overwhelming as most of the horrors are suggested but, thanks for small favors, not graphic.
As for the pace, well-done with the author spreading clues bit by bit to raise the readers’ suspicion about the whodunnit and sharing the shock-wave it would create.
When it comes to the romance part, I was a little bit disappointed with the relationship between Josh and Lucas : it was really on the back-burner while I wouldn’t have minded for more on-page depths, just like it was with Sawyer and Chris, or with Logan and Drew.
Nonetheless, “All That Remains” was gripping for the suspense part, so well done, that I give 4 well-deserved stars for the whole trilogy. For those who like romantic suspense, it's worth a try.
