Book Review & Tour – All That Remains by RJ Scott

A big welcome to RJ Scott as part of her tour with Signal Books Promotions for All That Remains.


Wow, this last book in the series was a total rollercoaster as all the mystery threads finally came together with an edge of seat conclusion. I thought the mystery was very well written, and I didn’t work out who was behind all the deaths until the characters did. And then it all made sense as everything clicked into place. Wonderfully done! And with some serious hurt/comfort and worry alongside it.

I’ve loved this series right from the beginning and the last book pays off big time. I liked how the mystery wasn’t easy to solve, and that, unlike in TV and movies, weeks can go by without a break in the case, especially as it’s a mix of cold crimes and recent murders. The body count mounts quickly in this final instalment!

One of the reasons I love series is revisiting characters from previous books and seeing them through different eyes. I liked seeing Sawyer/Chris, and Drew/Logan again, and Lucas’ view of the town and its people as an outsider. I loved Lucas and Josh together, and that they had obstacles to get through before they could be together. Josh is a great dad, and I enjoyed the scenes with him and Harry too. I loved Lucas and Josh’s reactions when they first met, and the instant attraction between them. The line where Josh decides he’s in the plot of Netflix crime show with gay leads was perfect.

The author writes small towns fabulously well and always makes them come alive and feel like a real place. I felt as though I had come to know the supporting cast who populate the town over the course of the series, which made the final few chapters of this story such a shock. I liked how all the threads, past and present, came together, and how Lucas’ story hooked into it as well. I felt sorry for his grandfather, and the last scene with him with Lucas and Josh was very sweet.

I’d highly recommend this series, but you do need to read it in order as each story builds on the one before and works together with the end result of an overall very satisfying read.

5 out of 5 stars.

Length: 82,000 words approx.

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?

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards.
