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.
“When sorcerers call the shots, what’s a girl without powers to do? Get ready for a ripper of a murder mystery full of romance and intrigue, where magic potions bubble, passions spark and vampires are definitely not your friend. Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective grabs you by the heart and won’t let go until the very last page. Well written, immersive and unputdownable. This is urban fantasy at its best. More please!”
–Kim Falconer, bestselling author of The Spell of Rosette, Quantum Enchantment Series
I was lucky enough to receive this to review ahead of publication (which in no way influenced my review).
Straight off, I enjoyed getting to know Cassie. She’s a sweet young lady with insecurities and strengths, which made her wonderfully three dimensional. She is the only nonmagical member of a very powerful magical family, leaving her feeling inferior to them all and longing to prove herself worthy, albeit in a nonmagical way. She also has an emotional connection to a very powerful, magical young man and therein lies the minor romantic element (sweet level) to this paranormal mystery.
You’ll find witches and vampires popping up, along with murderers to uncover and mysteries to solve, and a thoroughly entertaining and well written novel.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
