It started out fun, funny and romantic. Then the family came in and all the Yiddishisms were spot on.
And then...it just got sad, depressing and the ending was a total downer. It didn't feel right - how the beginning led to the end. If you don't need a happy ending, then read it - the writing style is just fine, and the author has talent. But, basically, I was expecting apples and I got...prunes.
This story may be short but it is packed with emotion, mystery and action. In Amy/Emerald's world shifters are accepted as part of the Goyim (non Jews) but there will never be a Jewish shifter. It's just not possible. Her parents have decided it's time their daughter is married and invite a nice Jewish boy to the Passover meal. So what does Amy/Emerald do? Am I being mean when I say read the story to find out?
The interaction between the characters in this book is paranormal but in an unusual way. A great mystery with an unexpected twist, something that always adds a bit of spice to a story. Good read for lovers of paranormal.

The story begins just as she is finishing up her concert and we learn that she is traveling home for Passover with her family in Pumpkin Falls - a small town in New York State. Michael, her boyfriend, is returning to his home to run with his pack during the full moon; but they have a gig in Las Vegas five days later. Unfortunately, her passover feast doesn't go so well. First, Amy looses her voice, and then, she learns that Michael was killed. Thus begins this engrossing story...
Amy/Emerald goes to the town of Boone to investigate what happened to her boyfriend and along the way, try to figure out who put the whammy on her voice. The story has some very funny moments and had a lot of nice little touches as we learn more about Amy and her family as well as some of their religious practices. I do heartily recommend this to anyone who enjoys short stories that include element of fantasy.
It's a short story involving a nice Jewish girl who's a country singer and a shape-shifter, dating one of her bandmates who is also a shifter. She goes home for Passover to face a chorus of "why aren't you married yet, and here's a nice Jewish boy to get you there." Between fending off her parents' romantic meddling and her perfect sister's snarkiness, she also has to solve the violent death of someone she loves.
I got so caught up in the characters and plot and then, boom! it ended. That's when I figured out it was a short story, not a full-blown book. Left me wanting more. A lot more. I'm intrigued by a nice Jewish girl being a country singer, and trying to fit into a conservative family, let alone be a shape-shifter. I hope to see more in this line.
