A Ghostly Secret (Ghostly Southern Mysteries 7) by Tonya Kappes

Hello to all,

                   this week has some excellent release so i'm happy i can share my opinion on some with you as some authors trusted me with their book....Today i will tell you a little about  the new Tonya Kappes " A Ghostly Secret"
...i'm behind in that series but quickly catching up but if i have a few authors i should avoid reading in the evening she is one. Not that i don't like her books it's the opposite...when i start no matter the time i need to finish it once started and this one can be added to the list.

That being said, my review won't be too long to avoid spoiler as this book need to be read in order i can't recommend it enough ( and i can't tell why exactly without spoilers either so just trust me and read this in order)


Happy Reading

Description from goodreads :

 Emma Lee Raines, proprietor of a small-town Kentucky funeral home, Eternal Slumber, is a “Betweener,” helps ghosts stuck between here and the ever-after— only murdered ghosts. After Emma Lee solves who murdered them, only then can they cross over to the Great Beyond, Big Guy In The Sky.

Emma Lee is up against a cold case that happened before she’d even gotten her “Betweener” gift. Not only is the ghost of eight-year-old Betsy Lynn Brady, but Mr. Whiskers Betsy’s cat needs to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

Betsy Lynn Brady has no idea who murdered her or why. With her heart in shambles, Emma Lee begs her sexy beau, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross to reopen the cold case because Betsy’s head is always stuck in a book and can’t remember exactly what happened to her.

Emma Lee learns real fast that someone doesn’t want her to snoop around the cold case. Can she help Betsy cross over and get Mr. Whiskers cross the Rainbow Bridge before someone helps Emma Lee check out from the living?

My opinion:
          Really moving! i couldn't stop reading and i just wanted to hug Emma Lee.... however let's start by the beginning this book is the 7th in the series and  for this one i do recommend you read the precedent books first and some events needs to be read not just remembered. (Even if Tonya explains well enough what has happened etc  it's better to follow the series)

So this book is one of change for Emma, i can't tell you in details as it would be major spoiler but she needs to adjust to a lot of things at the same time at it's not easy for her....but it makes me admire her courage even more because no matter what happen she is not letting her " client", ghost client, down and it's even stronger in this case as it's about a little girl so it was especially moving and i did want Betsy to get peace as well as Emma.
It sure mixes suspense, moving moment with some humour as always and it's why i love this series, this time it's not only Emma's grandma but also a ghost cat that put humour when we need it the most.

The investigation is really well done, Emma is starting to open up ( just a little) and it just makes me want to jump on the next book without delay ( but for that i will need patience as it must be written first) really this is a great series with story of quality and for the lover of cozy mysteries with touch of paranormal i do recommend it!


Score:  5/5

Short description from goodreads :

 When Fenix is flooded by psychic visions of a baby being kidnapped and prepared as a sacrifice, she goes on a desperate hunt to find him. The search takes her through a portal into the dangerous world of the Fae. Fearsome new and old enemies lurk around every corner, intent on stopping her. With the time left to save the child running out, will Fenix succeed when her newfound magical powers are seemingly stifled by the strange Faeland? If you like fast-paced action, a strong female lead, and a dreamy love interest, you will love this second installment of The Peacesmith Series.


My opinion:
          The first book was surprising, this one keeps the excellent quality of the story! We find Fenix and her friends just a few weeks after the events in book 1 and there is a lot of tension brewing. Fenix still need to adjust to her new role and she has a lot to learn while trying to keep it a secret from anyone else.
Alda is a b**** since she lost her treasured motorcycle and is making anyone crazy with strange demands but in fact the situation is deeper than that as Fenix will know.

Fenix is really an heroine we love to follow, she is true to her heart and always protect others, she isn't telling her secret not because she doesn't need understanding but because in that universe where magic is illegal knowing someone has some is already a crime. So she stays silent to protect them.
Gaïus is her mentor but we can see he was still in training...he isn't bad but he is too centered on the peacesmith thing and doesn't realise that it could take different forms...i don't like him a lot not that he is bad but often he is more a burden than a help or at least he feels like it.

On a trip to try to calm Alda, Fenix touches a damaged car and has the vision of a baby....immediately she is decided to save him, no matter the risk and that leads her directly to fayland...not and peaceful place and more dangerous, a place where her magic is bound. So it's without magic and only her courage and the helps of her allies that she will try the impossible.

The rhythm is quick as, the time is running and we keep turning the page to see more so the investigation is good with some twists and it's a great story.
We see how being a peacesmith is natural to Fenix, in fact and she is doing the job....i guess i only regret she didn't speak to Petunia but then it's only the romantic part of me that would have thought that to be a great bonus.

It's a  series i do want to continue as we still have a lot to discover.



Score:  4/5

BLURB

Ripley

They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.

Dylan

For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and
effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.

Tales from Harborsmouth ( Ivy Granger 0- Novellas anthology-0.5;1.5;2.5;5.5) by E J Stevens

Hello to all,


This week is sure to offer us a lot of great release after Illumination from Susannah Johnson, it's Tales from Harvorsmouth by E. J. Stevens that releases today.....if you don't remember it it's part of the Ivy Granger series from which i gave you my opinion on the first books ( yes i'm behind in this series but i will catch up.)

Novellas when not mandatory to follow a series are a great bonus, it gives us more insight into the past of the characters for example...unfortunately it's often only in digital which is why i prefer when they are bonus so if we skip them as print readers we don't miss anything capital. However when they are bundled together so that we can have all of them ( and sometimes new ones)AND available in print it's often a little treasure. I enjoyed Ivy Granger series so i couldn't miss this one but now it's time i tell you a little about the novellas inside^^

Happy reading!

 Description from goodreads :

 In Tales from Harborsmouth, readers get a chance to delve deeper into the exciting world of Ivy Granger.

Ivy Granger is a psychic detective with ties to Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld. Too bad those ties tend to ensnare Ivy and her friend Jinx in the Machiavellian schemes of the city's teeming population of bloodsucking vampires and psychotic faeries.

FROSTBITE (Ivy Granger #0.5)

In this Ivy Granger prequel, join Ivy and Jinx on a disturbing case that leads down a dead end alley to a house ravaged by time and circumstance.

Everyone knows that there's no such thing as ghosts, but when a client claims that her house is being haunted, Ivy tries to keep her mind open and her weapons handy. If her psychic gifts and recent cases have taught her anything, it's that you're better off arming yourself for the unexpected. Anything is possible in Harborsmouth.

BLOOD AND MISTLETOE (Ivy Granger #1.5)

Holidays are worse than a full moon for making people crazy. In Harborsmouth, where many of the residents are undead vampires or monstrous fae, the combination may prove deadly.

Holidays are Hell, a point driven home when a certain demon attorney returns with information regarding a series of bloody murders. Five Harborsmouth residents have been killed and every victim has one thing in common—they are fae. Whoever is killing faeries must be stopped, but they only leave one clue behind—a piece of mistletoe floating in a pool of the victim's blood. The holidays just got interesting.

CLUB NEXUS (Ivy Granger #2.5)

A demon, a human, an Unseelie faerie, and a vampire walk into a bar...

These four intertwining short stories are set in Club Nexus, the hidden haunt of Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld.

Iced: A bargain gone wrong leads a highborn Unseelie faerie to life as an enslaved bartender with a taste for revenge.

Dusted: Being a highly skilled predator doesn't necessarily put you at the top of the food chain at Club Nexus. A southern vampire with a hankering for blood and wanton violence may have bit off more than he can chew.

Demonized: The demon attorney we love to hate has his eye on a certain rockabilly human. Too bad she's brought a crossbow loaded with holy water dipped bolts for this night on the town.

Jinxed: Just when Jinx needs a carefree girl's night out with Ivy, a smoking hot demon tries to buy her a drink. She really is the unluckiest human on the planet.

THRILL ON JOYSEN HILL (Ivy Granger #5.5)

Few places are as rife with opportunity or as fraught with danger as Harborsmouth's notorious Joysen Hill. Vampires own the real estate, and even the most ruthless human thugs won't venture there after dark, but when Torn gets stuck babysitting, he can only think of one place in Harborsmouth interesting enough to take a demon toddler, a teenage bridge troll, and a grouchy hearth brownie. What happens next substantiates the city's advertising slogan. No matter who or what you are, no matter how young or old, you can find your thrill on Joysen Hill. (less)



My opinion:
          I love when author bundles together several novellas from an universe for me it gives an useful additional insight into the series and i'm happy this one is doing it and more.  Now some of the novellas can be read in any order, always better to read a series in order novellas included but in this case some are prequel and others gives enough information to satisfy a new reader without making him feel lost. That i absolutely loved it's really a great bonus.

Now since we are speaking novellas, i will give a short opinion on each one while trying to avoid spoilers too much.

Frostbite:  really good, creepy  would have it been perfect around halloween time. We discover a bit of Ivy and we see some of her limits as well.  Fast paced it's read very quickly.

Blood and Mistletoes: We meet again with some secondary characters we met in the main series like Marvin, Kaye or Jenna so it's really enjoyable and for a new reader the author does explain who they are and how Ivy met them so it was really not disturbing or confusing. The investigation is short ( this is a novella after all) but we get all  the right elements...i loved to see Ivy deep sense of Justice

Club Nexus: This one is in 4 parts/chapter that must be read in order as in each one we get the event from one point of view and deepening some aspect over others... very interesting....we discover more about the demon Forneus and if read in order we do see how much Ivy and Jinx have improved.
It's dark, is sure to have effect later in the series but can be read even if you only have started the series or read the anthology to this point without confusion ( or very little spoilers only)


Thrill on Joysen Hill: This one is very spoilerish if you haven't read the  first 5 books in the series so i do recommend you to wait until you have read those to really savour it.  Really it's better as it doesn't really focus on Ivy as she is busy doing something i won't  tell and we see a bit more of a secondary character we saw earlier in the series: Sir Torn the cat sidhe king.... he is a funny character i really love him so i was happy to read this but i really do regret not having been up to date in the series first...it can be confusing a little or letting us with more questions...as a result at this point it's the one i enjoyed the less in the anthology but it's still a very good one simply better for a reader of the series ( and one up to date) not the best at all for a new reader



Score:  5/5

Illumination ( Penton Legacy 5) by Susannah Sandlin

Hello to all!!!



              Today i'm so happy to share with you that....the wait is over!!!!!! Penton legacy series finally gets it's conclusion and believe me it's so worth it!!!!!!!. A detail though....the ebook release tomorrow on amazon so you can  still preorder or order it BUT the paperback is already available which is the reason i'm sharing my opinion today and not tomorrow ( couldn't wait any longer).
I love when authors keep their promise against every ordeal and that's what Susannah/ Suzanne did she promised us a conclusion for us the fans of Penton and she did! Not only she did it but she did it wonderfully ( full book of quality, ebook AND paperback for us  print lovers who love books matching in our shelves.)

Really even if it was only the reason just buy this book to support such a good author but then like i said and like you will see in my review this is really a book worth buying and if you are being in the series just get it ( and the precedents books are available cheaper this month as well so grab them before setting in a Penton reading marathon) so please makes this author happy it will means more good books for us later!!so preorder, order just BUY this book!


But i wouldn't ask you or recommend you to buy a book without giving you my opinion on it so here it is - you can check my opinion on the precedent books by checking these links in order Redemption, Absolution, Omega, Allegiance-

Description from goodreads :

 He came to Penton seeking peace. Nik Dimitrou joined the Army to escape his family legacy, only to have his psychic abilities exploited as a weapon. Now, as a civilian, he turns to the bottle to veil the images that haunt his mind whenever he touches anyone—except vampires. With them, he has finally found a place. But as Penton moves into open warfare with the Vampire Tribunal, Nik finds himself a linchpin in the deepening conflict, not to mention a transformation in his own body more frightening than anything he’s faced.

She wanted to change the world. Shay Underwood watched her Peace Corps parents move from one third world country to another—until both died following an outbreak of fever. Driven to her own career in tropical medicine, Shay works to cure the disease that killed her parents—until a careless weekend outing draws her into a world far more dangerous than the diseases she studies: a vampire society engaged in human trafficking.

Two cities, two strangers, one world. With Penton rebellion leader Aidan Murphy making risky choices and chief vampire lieutenant Mirren Kincaid forced to take a leadership role for which he is unsuited, it will fall to two outsiders, Nik and Shay, to find a way for Penton—and themselves—to survive in this much-anticipated conclusion to the award-winning Penton Legacy series


My opinion:
          Great!!!!! really the wait was worth it because this book answer all our questions....it takes place a few weeks after the events in book 4 "Allegiance" and we are immediately feeling for our dear vampires because they sure needs helps....Aidan is a shade of himself, Penton is tired but not giving up .... in fact no one is left unscathed in a way or another so we needed to know what would happen and we do follow all of them.

However to fully enjoy this, it's better to have read the precedents books, yes  the author does remind us of event, does a little recap but it's a series that keeps getting better as it gets deeper into the plot so i can't recommend you enough to start by book 1 and read them back to back..

Because of the situation our vampires are in this book is quite dark and it does have some very dark elements, the tension is high ( with what is at stake  it's a minimum) so i kept turning the page wanting to know more but thankfully, as the author is so talented to do, we have touch of humour very well placed to give us a little emotional reprieve between the twists and jump into the darkness. We see the evolution of all the characters we have come to love and some appears under a new light too....like our dear Mirren the leader ( againsit his will mostly but then it's his nature); Will still the strategist and of course Nik....our dear Nik has to face a lot once again but his heart never waver. Shay is the new character of this book and she is wonderful, talented, determined and courageous....the romance is well written and make sense perfectly timed and slowly building so we have our sweet moments among a lot of angsty ones...we just can't stop reading until the last page!

Really it's the perfect conclusion for the Penton series and even better it offers us hope and possibilities for spin off in the future so would couldn't have wished for a better one. I recommend it without hesitation!



Score:  5/5

Mocha and Murder (A Killer Coffee Mystery 2) by Tonya Kappes

Hello to all!!!


                      Like i told you yesterday , this week was focused on me getting up to date in the Killer Coffee Mystery series by Tonya kappes with this second book freshly released....i can only say that it just get better to the point this series can be more addictive than coffee is for some.

Now, no need to wait longer and here is my opinion on Mocha and Murder!

Short description from goodreads :

 Roxy becomes entangled in another murder as she puts her sleuthing skills to work in order to prove that Louise Carlton didn't kill Fred Hill over a pet adoption gone wrong. After all, if Louise goes to jail, who is going to find all the animals at Pet Palace a home

My opinion:
          I loved it!!! really now that we know the setting and a bunch of characters we are immediately draw into the story and this one was quite surprising! Really the series just become even better and i guess this could work as a stand alone if you haven't read book 1 yet you do get enough info as not to be lost.

Roxy is still as funny and as strong as magnet for trouble and Patrick sure has a lot to do to care for her. I really loved how they decided to built their relationship. Bunny is still as funny and we do get to see aunt vs mom bickering and that was really too funny to see Roxy playing the adult one.

The pace is just perfect not too fast but not slow so you are so immersed that you read this in one setting and the plot is really, really well done with some twists and just the right amount of tips. We do see Pepper and Sassy and some new ones.

Also i loved to see how open Roxy was with her recipes and how attentive she is to her workers. We also still get the recipes to try ourselves

This series is really addictive and of great quality if you want some southern mystery this is definitively one to discover

Scene of the Grind (A Killer Coffee Mystery1) by Tonya Kappes

Hello to all,


                 If you follow me for a moment you know that i really enjoy Tonya Kappes writings and i'm fond of several of her books. Last week, the second book in one of her series was released but unfortunately for me i still didn't read book 1 so i was behind and since i love to read in order i had to start with book 1 "Scene of the Grind" however it took me a moment to read it as we had temperature well above the normal for here and i was simply in no shape to read or do anything but i fully plan to make up for that by getting up to date in this series before the end of the week^^.

So here is my opinion on Scene of the Grind, first book in the Killer Coffee Mystery series... probably my least favourite book from this author at this point but still one i loved a lot simply not my top choice^^


happy reading!

Short description from goodreads :

 After a bitter divorce, Roxanne Davis (her friends, though few call her Roxie) has moved back home to Honey Springs, Kentucky where she's opened the tourist lakefront town's first coffee house, The Beanhive.

With the excitement of the Beanhive opening and rush of business, Roxie is moving on with her life until she finds that one of her best customers was found dead after eating one of Roxie's best-selling doughnuts.

Gossip in Honey Springs is as hot at the coffee served at the Beanhive and Roxie has to uncover who is behind the murder not only to save her shop, but her life.

My opinion:
          It took a moment for me to get really into the story as the beginning is a bit slow while we learn about Roxy, her coffeehouse and Lakefront town but once the mystery starts we do follow Roxy with a lot of pleasure. Her romance was a bit quick but it does feel right and it's hard to resist Pepper.

I guess i just would have wanted to see more of Pepper somehow but we will hear more of him ( and of Sassy i hope) so perhaps i will love next book even more than this one.

The plot is well done, it was fun to discover some of the people living in the town , Bunny is really helpful and a bit like a sunshine even extra early, aunt Maxi must have a lot of secret and so many more to discover.

It's a good cozy mystery and i will be happy to continue the series. A bonus is the several recipes found in the book some i can't wait to try, i think that was a genius idea and so fitting the series and Roxy's passion.

Soul Enslaved ( Sons of Wrath 3) by Keri Lake

Hello to all!!!!


                     I'm sharing with you my opinion on the third book in the Sons of Wtrath series by Keri Lake, i loved the first books but i got behind taking care of my mother so i'm glad to have jumped in the series again especially since i want to tell you that for those news to the series a box set with book 1-3 release tomorrow ( if you hurry you can still have it at promotional price  ( less than 1dollars but it won't last long).   Link to the box set on amazon

Really it's a good series if you love dark paranormal romance you can find my review of book 1 "Soul Avenged"  and of book 2 " Soul ressurected"    so don't hesitate to get the box set if you don't have the books yet.

Now let see my opinion of book 3 " Soul Enslaved"

Description from goodreads :

 Imprisonment in Obsidius. Enslavement to a soul-sucking succubus. A reproductive cycle that’d send a sex fiend running into the arms of celibacy. Given the choice, most demons would opt for death.

Gavin, eldest son of Wrath, has been sentenced to all three.

When the succubus decides its time to collect, though, he fears his nightmares have only just begun.

And Sabelle’s timing couldn’t be worse.

With a bad case of uncontrollable lust, thanks to his Savidon, the last thing Gavin wants is a vengeful succubus stoking his darkest desires, but debts must be paid—he just didn’t bank on enjoying his punishment so much.

Because the swinging bachelor may have found his perfect mate in the sexy seductress.

However, just as things seem to be looking up, past sins resurface, plunging the two into a deadly game of power and deception. As their worst fears merge into one unexpected threat, Gavin is determined to protect Sabelle and win her freedom.

At any cost.


My opinion:
          I loved Gavin from the beginning of the series he is so loyal and determined to protect his brothers i always loved that about him in this story we see even more how far he is willing to go for those he loves. I'm happy to see that Sabelle is quite the same so they are really good together even if i wanted to shake her from time to time for the way she in a sense refuse to be happy while doing all she can to be.

There is a lot of action , and some bantering between the main characters it's funny to see them interact and of course there are some steamy, very steamy scene but  exactly at the right moment in the story so that they are real part of it. Now as you know this series there are also some very dark moments, sad moments, tension ....but strangely for me it didn't sound as dark as the precedent one...strange will all what happen but really i wasn't left in angst, my heart did cry a little at part, but the story is so complete that  the ambiance of the book seemed a little lighter ( and for me that's better)

You will find Sabelle 's children too cute i'm sure and it's always great to see more of the brothers. In this book we do learn a bit more about the whole consequences possible and objectives of diverse group which plant the setting for  the rest ( and that could be darker when we discover the players) but we are not left with an angsty cliffhanger  so it was simply perfect and we did learn about new creature that without saying that the  list of terms at the beginning of the book stay really handy.

This is a series i fully plan to continue as the quality never wavers




Score:  5/5

Now thanks to the author kindness i could have a copy to give you my opinion on the story so here it comes.

Description from goodreads :

  Terrorists want her…but so does he.

Isaac believes this personal protection assignment in Big Sky, Montana is going to be filled with skiing novice slopes all day and spending his nights fending off unwanted pursuers of the pampered daughter of two Atlanta physicians. He couldn’t be more wrong. Hannah Kader was an officer in the all-female YPG Battalion in the Syrian Army, and ISIS wants her, preferably alive. The chase isn’t the only thing that heats up when the flint of the former SEAL strikes against the steel of the woman warrior.

Snow SEAL is a Guardian Security crossover with Elle James’s Brotherhood Protectors. If you enjoy heart-pounding, military romance interwoven with sizzling passion, you’ll like the fourth book in this novella series.


Buy this book and let KaLyn Cooper take you on a thrill ride through the Montana mountains.


My opinion:
          As it's the principle of the kindle worlds book this story is set in a pre-existing universe/series since i haven't  read it i had no prior knowledge of the characters but it didn't prevent me to enjoy this story a lot as it works really well as stand alone.

What was the most interesting was to see how the author choose a really strong female character. Hannah isn't a simple damsel in distress, she doesn't hesitate to fight for what she believes in and at the same time she still has a kind of fragility that makes her even more adorable.
Isaac is an interesting character as well, loyal he has a shady past we only have glimpses about but he is a good man and great friend.. i guess i would have loved if he had been a little more focused on the job or at least longer but i guess it's hard to resist Hannah.

This book has some very steamy scenes but a real plot and  doesn't lack action ; it's well written.



Score:  4/5

Description from goodreads :

 An out of control Alpha Wolf who is obstinate and won’t heed his Beta’s warnings. Kade MacKenzie is hell-bent on feeding the Hunger gnawing inside him. Stubborn to the core he refuses to believe what’s wrong, that is, until his Wolf decides otherwise.
When his best friend, and one of his Betas, Lennox, reveals the reason for his insatiable Hunger, Kade refuses to believe him. At first. His beast has other ideas, and soon the Shifter is on a quest to find the most precious thing in the universe: his soul-mate.
His decision made, Kade will allow nothing to stand in his way as he searches for the woman who will change his life forever.
Paranormal beings in abundance in book 2 of New York Times Bestselling Author, A K Michaels’ contemporary fantasy series, packed with thrills, hot Shifters, Alpha males, suspense and loaded with Paranormal Romance.




My opinion:
          This was really interesting, it's a stand alone so  i didn't need to read the first book in the series and the universe is easy to get a grasp of. The writing style is engaging so this is a easy and quick read.

It's not fully original as it's the soul mate theme we come across often but i really loved how it was done. For example in this universe people know shifters exist...they don't mix a lot but it's not top secret so Kirsti isn't totally lost when she met with Kade and his group. Also i particularly loved Leia.....the dog because yes our heroin as a dog with her...dog among the wolf ends in a very cute situation, hard to resist smiling at those moments.
The author manages to catch our interest and this story is read in one sitting without trouble at all.

The way Kade react is sweet, Kristi adjust too well and too quickly in my opinion but then again with the story it didn't bother me too much..i still think as some parts were a  bit rushed in the sense that if it took longer, the story wouldn't feel too long at all but nothing major.

There are a lot of violence, action and some humour ( or sweet touches to be more precise), i loved some secondary characters like Skie or Jimmy .


It was a very enjoyable read

Score:  4/5

A Ghostly Gift ( Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries 1,5) by Angie Fox

Hello to all!


              Since i did a lot of new release review lately  and because i got the opportunity to read more of one of my favourite series i decided not to wait and share it with you without delay ( after all early next week we should get storms so better in advance than late). So, here is "A Ghostly gift" by Angie Fox .

Happy reading!

Short description from goodreads :

 From New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox -- a fabulously fun short story in the new Southern Ghost Hunter Mystery series

Verity Long doesn't want to see ghosts, and she'd rather not let anyone know her little secret, either. But when a restless spirit stirs up trouble in her friend's resale shop, Verity and her very new, very dead gangster friend team up to learn what is really happening.

They discover an age-old secret, and must learn the truth behind a mysterious disappearance…before it's too late.


My opinion:
          So sweet! This novella is set just after book 1 Southern Spirits but mostly i think it could be read as stand alone to give you an idea as it does include enough information however i would prefer to recommend you to read it in order it's so much better. Verity is recovering from the event of the first instalment but not sure she wants to become "official" ghost hunter when Frankie is set on gaining money.

Verity is asked from one of her sister's friend to help in an antique shop and discover a ghost wanting to see his loved one again and let her know how much he still loves her all while giving her something back but he can't and that's why problem happened. Moved by his story, Verity decide to help, even without pay.

We can see with this novella how a gentle soul Verity is and really this was a cute investigation but really moving and so, so sweet... thsi novella isn't essential to understand the series i think but it's a great bonus so if you do follow this series (and you should) don't hesitate to read this novella as well.


Score:  5/5

Description from goodreads :

  He’s a gambling man…

One brunette bombshell with a devious mind and a potty mouth has thrust Kent smack dab in the middle of where he never wanted to be—his family. He’s spent most of his life avoiding his familial responsibilities, especially the one that required him to join the Ninth Circle Council—the demon society’s equivalent of judge, jury, and executioner. Then one lost bet with a little Amazon flips his entire life upside down. With worries about retaliation from the remnants of a rogue pack of wolves in Germany, he doesn’t have time to deal with his family, or his obsession with Chloe Demos.

And she’s the biggest risk he’ll ever take…

After her mother’s death, Chloe’s world crashes down around her. A secret Amazonian heritage. Aunts and a long lost brother she never knew about. Supernatural beings. With all of the sudden changes, she’s decided it’s time to step out from behind her façade of an air-headed, materialistic bimbo and show her sisters she truly does love them—she only hates their wardrobes. What better way to show she cares about her family than to help prove someone close to one of them is innocent of the bogus murder charges from some ridiculous council? Chloe has no scruples about calling in the marker the demon Kent owes her in order to do just that. It’s only too bad she’s underestimated Kent’s intelligence, and his playboy charm.


My opinion:
          This series is very entertaining and i was really looking forward more Kent as he was one of the most mysterious characters....on that part i wasn't disappointed we learn more about him for sure, his past, name, power and what is really important for him. I really loved that and he is so loyal and underestimated or more exactly we don't even give him a chance to show how he is really.

Chloe also hide her real personality under lot of appearance and prefer to let people think what they want if that means they are underestimating her....but if what stranger think doesn't count she suffers that her own family doesn't see more deeply under her cover.

I loved to see a bit more about Elena and Gage even if what we see this time just lead to more questions than answer ( though i wonder if Chloe's action isn't for something in that)anyway we get a lot of answers, some more question, the eternal cliffhanger...

The only thing that bothered me a little was the language, a little isn't bad but Chloe and Kent together that sure change the level of the series so far....i wasn't that happy either that started going together simply for a bed or frustration..... i don't mind steamy when it's meaningful but at the beginning it's not really the case as they don't trust each other and have something to prove...that disappointed me little and no matter how intelligent Chloe is, and it's sure she is a good match for Kent, i still have difficulty to appreciate her.

Really a good series, we want more off


Score:  3,5/5
