Now onto our main character. Reb's life is far from glamorous. As an outcast from her own kind she is living in the bad part of town as a PI. She has no close friends, unless you count a street cat she has adopted. This is the perfect setup for a budding romance, especially with all of the action she and Brandon are going to have to face in order to bring a killer to justice. Lucky for her Brandon seems just as attracted to her as she is to him and isn't deterred by her constant pushing him away.
This was a fun read with strong characters. Even though Reb is obviously the main character enough time was taken with each of the minor characters so that you felt like you knew them. The action was intense and spread out enough through the story to keep you interested.
I do have to warn you there was a couple of spots where I had to stop and reread something when the conversation didn't seem to flow. Overall though this was a great story and well worth the time. I hope to see this turn into a series. I'd love to see where Reb and Brandon end up next.
Rebecca, a private investigator, has a complicated past and an even more complicated relationship with her family, and the plot moves through a web of betrayals, ancient secrets and the shadowy truth. Adding spice to matters, the handsome tabloid reporter Brandon Hannover makes it his business to get involved with Rebecca both on a professional and personal level. Their bantering and dangerous relationship is one of the highlights of the book, practically crackling off the pages.
I don't want to give the plot away, but I will add that if you're a cat-lover, this is definitely a book you don't want to miss, and with luck, the start of a series, since I would adore seeing Rebecca and Brandon in a further story.
It seems that somebody has brutally murdered a local Pride member and Jess wants an outside agency to investigate the crime, somebody who can move between the human and the Felis worlds, and understand why this investigation has to be kept on the down-low. Unfortunately, the murder has already hit the local tabloid, complete with pictures of the murder victim caught in-between shifting. So, the first thing that she has to do is track down the photographer of the crime and to do this she has to contact the reporter who wrote tabloid story.
The reporter is Brandon Hanover, and he smells a story, and who is attracted to Rebecca. And so we are on our way, and what becomes striking is how Sheryl Nantus manages to juggle the romance, the shapeshifting, and crime itself. And good job of this juggling she does.
Nantus tells her story with a sense of ease, and creates an eminently likable character in Rebecca, as Nantus gives Rebecca equal amounts of self-disparagement, cynicism, and bulldog determination. Rebecca is an old-fashioned pulp detective, with a libido, transplanted to modern times.Read more ›
