This week I’m snippeting again from the first Plumber’s Mate Mystery, Pressure Head, because why not? It’s still early days for Tom and Phil, in terms of forgiving and forgetting the past:
“You can’t just turn up after a dozen years, say oh, sorry, and expect us to be best mates all of a sudden,” I said, softening my tone a bit. “It doesn’t work like that.” I wished I knew how it bloody well did work.
“Want me to go down on my knees, do you?” Phil asked wearily, and all of a sudden I got a picture of just that. Him in his posh suit and all.

Pressure Head – #1 in the Plumber’s Mate Mystery series
Some things are better left hidden.
Tom Paretski’s not just a plumber with a dodgy hip courtesy of a schoolboy accident. He also has a sixth sense for finding hidden things. Called in by the police to help locate a body near Brock’s Hollow, he’s staggered to encounter Phil Morrison, his old school crush—and the closeted bully whose actions contributed to Tom’s accident.
Phil’s all grown up now, and Tom’s unwilling attraction to him is back with a vengeance. Phil’s now openly gay—and what’s more, he’s interested in Tom’s personal charms as well as his psychic talents. As a private investigator called in by the dead woman’s parents, Phil is sceptical about Tom’s unusual gift, but nevertheless quick to spot its potential to aid him in his work.
The further they go with the investigation, the less they can ignore their shared past, and the more the pressure and the heat build between them. But Tom isn’t certain he wants to know the secrets he’s helping to uncover, while there’s a murderer on the loose who won’t hesitate to kill again—and this uneasy couple is moving right into his sights.

Aww, this is both intense and oddly sweet, the sincerity of the last part (heart)
Thank you! I’m loving revisiting their early dynamic, as it’s very relevant to the book I’m writing now. 🙂
I love these two. I think I need to reread!
Oh very nice
I agree with Tom.
And yeah, maybe Phil should get on his knees.
I hope the next line is, “Yes.”
