    I really enjoyed this story, just like with Double Indemnity Maggie Kavanagh know's how to write a good mystery! She kept me guessing about the arsonist until the end and I never suspected the character being responsible for it. I think I loved Sam and Nathan even more than I did in the first book. It was great to see the two of them again, see how they were doing and spent some time with them again. What I loved about Inner Santum, was that Sam's doubt about who was responsible for the fires was believable. And even though I didn't like him lying to Nathan I absolutely understand why he did it. Also think it would have felt wrong if he'd done nothing. Those who already read the first book know Sam can't not investigate on his own. Especially when it looks like the police have the wrong guy.I am really looking forward to reading more of these two because they're great together. Can't wait to see where the author takes them in the last installment of the series!If you loved the first book, you'll definitely like the second one. Go read it! :)

    3.5 stars I enjoyed this second book in the Stonebridge Mystery trilogy. This story was equal parts romance and equal parts mystery. Sam gets himself involved in another case and this time he puts Nathan in to a tough spot with his job. I think these two are a great couple and I like how they communicate and work with each other. They're not perfect but they're also not full of angst and made up drama. The characters come across as everyday guys who love each other and are doing the best they can. I thought the mystery in this one was good. I also really liked the side characters and their roles in the story. I can't wait to read the last book and see how things end up for Sam and Nathan.

    Aww... things are looking up for this series! I enjoyed this second installment much more that I did the first book! Although, I must admit that even though I understand where the BDSM thread is coming from... I am not sure that it is working for me! Curious to see where Ms. Kavanagh goes with it in the next book! BTW: Stonebridge, Connecticut just doesn't seem like the place to live! ;D

    This review originally appeared at Divine MagazineInner Sanctum continues Nathan and Sam's story which began in Double Indemnity and opens up a new investigation after a series of arson attacks in Stonebridge.Though I think Double Indemnity has a slight edge on this sequel, I still enjoyed Maggie Kavanagh's writing, the strong personalities she creates, and particularly her new characters like Damon Blake.In writing this as a sequential series, it means that Maggie Kavanagh is able to evolve Nathan and Sam's relationship, developing some of the seeds that were planted during Double Indemnity.Sam and Nathan have now been together for six months. Sam is committed, but still reconciling himself with Nathan's past sexual experiences.Whilst the fact that Sam is unable to talk to Nathan about his desires is an indication of the trust issues between them, I do not think this conforms with the idea of Sam that we have - the confident journalist who confronts murderers.I think Sam and Nathan's gentle experimentation with different sexual roles is interesting, though not necessary to the plot, and I prefer the vanilla moments between them.Around the couple's relationship obstacles and reluctance to trust one another, Maggie Kavanagh writes an intriguing mystery. We spend most of the story confident of the perpetrator's identity, only for Maggie Kavanagh to laugh in our faces at Inner Sanctum's explosive conclusion.Although I had a few small issues with the book I am really excited to see what is next for Nathan, Sam and Stonebridge in Blind Spot.

    Really 3.5* for me, but having read a number of books I really didn't care for in between reading this one and rating it, I have to give props to the author for coherently, cohesively carrying this narrative through to a satisfying conclusion. I need to read the first one to get a better handle on the characters and their relationship, but the setting is interesting and the story is well thought out. Enjoyable, and I would definitely pick up another book from Ms Kavanagh.

    Another awesome story!!!! I love Sam! He's such a wonderful character who is a hero but doesn't even realize it. He has a humility to him that is so very endearing! I'm still not 100% sold on Nathan and this next book in the series will either make me accept him or totally drive me into the hate him category! I do love their new kitten though! So sweet! Even she loves Sam!This series is such a pleasant surprise!

    Part of a series but could be read as a standalone, better to read the first one, though. Great writing and I enjoyed everything about it just as much as I did the first one. No cliffhanger but I can't wait for the next book.

    Reviewer:VictoriaGenre:M/M Contemporary5 HeartsReview:Inner Sanctum is the second book in The Stonebridge Mysteries by Maggie Kavanagh. This book is best read as part of the series to best understand the characters and setting. However, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel as well.The first paragraph of the story leaves you intrigued. At the end of the first chapter, I was hooked and could not wait to finish the story. The author did a wonderful job of creating a realistic world where the reader is able to picture what is happening, including a time and place. The author realistic world pulled to reader into in was ease. The pace of the story was a steady pace that was not too fast or too slow. The characters in the story were thought-provoking and exciting. I loved that both Sam and Nathan each were not perfect. They both come across as very realistic.The point of view alternated between Sam and Nathan, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The main conflict of the story is developing relationship while Sam is trying to clean a teenager’s name. The characters motivations fit the conflict. The level of conflict is perfect. I was left wanting more by the stories end. The dialogue between the characters was sincere and distinct. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. I loved this story, and can see re-reading it again in the future. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.See Review Here: Hearts On Fire ReviewsFacebook link:

    Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance I don't think we can quite call Inner Sanctum a cozy mystery since Nate is a FBI agent and all, but Sam is our main investigator. He is certainly NOT a policeman or agent, so we will call it a cozy-ish mystery. Yes, I have a thing for cozy(ish) mysteries. They are all about the everyday man (or woman) seeing a wrong and wanting to make it right. It is a fine line for an author to walk because you can't paint the authorities in a bad light, but you have to believe that your protagonist is the only one that can solve the crime.

    2 perfectly imperfect characters solving mysteries - LOVED IT! Very entertaining. There are 3 books in the series and I enjoyed them all.

    Liked the writing and the mystery. Did not like the BDSM parts (so not my scene).

    3.75 stars.I'm glad I gave this series one more shot. It was nice to finally get some proper sleuthing, a good mystery plot, and actual romance. Enjoyed it very much.

    Better then the first book. The relationship between Sam and Nathan deepens and becomes more realistic. The mystery plot is less obvious and more suspenseful and compelling.
