Now let’s talk about SHIFTING DREAMS, shall we?
Oh boy, Caleb had no idea what he was getting himself into when he heads out to the desert to take a job as police chief to a small California town. His first night there he meets a gorgeous bartender and thinks that it might not be so bad after all. But soon he starts noticing strange looks among the town’s people and certain things don’t add up. Even more so when there is a murder in the nearly crime free town. Caleb is bound and determined to get to the bottom of it no matter the cost.
Jena wants to forget the night she met the new police chief. Not that anything other than kissing went down, but it would be best for her and her family if this outsider would just leave well enough alone. He doesn’t need to get mixed up in her life and her secrets. Secrets that could cost her her life and that of those she loves. Secrets that the town has kept hidden for years and years.
If you have ever read any of Hunter’s other work you know this lady can write a mean Vampire series. She has even dabbled in Contemporary Fiction (which I happened to love by the way). And now, Hunter can add ‘Shifters’ to her resume. Her writing is impeccable and it just pulls you in.Read more ›
Jena is a young, serious and dedicated single mother living in a very small, close-knit shifter community out in the middle of the California desert. By day she owns and runs the town's only diner and helps out in the local biker bar at night. Her concern and care for her two sons is made clear very early on which made her spontaneous make-out session with Caleb, the stranger in town feel awkward and out of character. I understand sexual frustration and need, but this early scene just felt odd to me and in a small town like Cambio Springs, her actions would have been noted and remarked.
As for Caleb...hmmm... Described as a decorated lawman from Albuquerque, he's hired to be the new police chief of Cambio Springs. Even though an effort was made to explain his hiring so far in advance of the opening of the planned new resort, it just didn't feel logical to me. The town has the protection of the county sheriff, is poor and on the the brink of collapse, but a new police chief and deputy are hired well before they're needed for a town which is described as having VERY little crime. Apart from investigating the mystery in this book he mostly just sits around and daydreams about Jena.
My other complaint about Caleb, who is described multiple times as a hotshot lawman, is that he's kind of piss poor at doing basic lawman stuff. At two crucial times, when he should have had his weapon, he comes up without it.Read more ›
Outsiders pretty much have to marry in to learn the secret that the residents of Cambio Springs are keeping, but the town is dying, there are no jobs and families are being forced to move away from the only place that they will ever truly be able to be themselves. That freedom from hiding is what brought young widow Jena and her two sons back home to Cambio Springs and her extended family.
As a single mom, Jena is too busy for a relationship, but when she decides to enjoy a flirtation with a handsome stranger from out of town, she expects some smooches but no entanglements after they say goodnight. Caleb Gilbert, is 'not just passing through' though, and has been hired as Cambio Springs' new police chief in conjunction with a scheme to bring new life to the town and entanglements are just want he comes to want with the smart and capable Jena. But when there's a murder in the close knit community, Caleb quickly realizes that he is trying to solve a puzzle where all the pieces don't fit and everyone in Cambio Springs is lying to him.
I really enjoyed my first full length visit to Cambio Springs, an out of the way desert town with a secret. I really loved the swaggering and sharply intelligent Caleb and the fact that even though Jena really makes him work it, he is relentless in his pursuit of getting her to give him a chance. I also really loved all of the supporting characters in Jena's friends and family - including her kids, who feel like real kids. And because I really liked the connections in the community, I didn't mind the relaxed pace of the story.Read more ›
