Book Synopsis

Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

This book caught me from just the first few pages and before I knew it half the book was gone and so was half my day. This is such an easy and enjoyable read  that I actually managed to finish it in just one day. The first time in a long time I have been able to do that.

I read this book specifically for the tour (that doesn't mean my review is not an honest one. I ONLY post honest reviews), but when i started to build my review I realised that actually I had come across this cover a few times, and for some reason I had not picked it up. Now of course I'm sat here feeling like I have egg on my face because I truly loved this book.

Cassie could have been me.  No I don't come from a magical family (more's the pity) but I found myself connecting with Cassie  on several matters throughout the book. On paper I guess you would say Cassie is the weak link in her family, the one without magical powers.  But despite her lack of powers it doesn't prevent her from doing what she can to protect not just her family, but the people of her town from a vampire.

This was a great mix of paranormal, crime, mystery, romance and a few comedic spots that had me laughing loud enough I had to read sections to my husband. I cant wait to read what happens next for Cassie.
