There’s something about this series that just puts me in a good mood and this book was no different. I think it is the warmth of the characters and the community that Blake has taken the time to craft. This time, Darcy Merriweather is trying to help her friend Star whose violent ex-husband Kyle is back in town. No one else but Star has seen the man so there is no proof that he’s been harassing her. Darcy starts looking for the supernatural means by which he could have made himself invisible.
When Calla answers her boss’s phone, she doesn’t expect to hear a dying man (Cage). Nor does she expect him to reject all sensible offers of assistance, make her recite a large sequence of numbers and swear to track down a man who ‘done her wrong’ years ago. Things go downhill rapidly from there.
Erin Flynn bucks the trend as she is a female Enforcer in a world dominated by men. She and Noah, the werewolf that adores her, travel down to New Orleans to try to investigate the disappearances of a group of pregnant shape-shifters. Angelo, their packmate and Brianna, a Fae warrior, are also recruited to help out.
What happens when you mix together a family curse, star-crossed lovers, a generous helping of humour, a splash of old-fashioned voodoo, cakes (nom, nom, nom) and a river boat cruise? A really sweet and enjoyable contemporary romance of course. Allie Mauvais has had a thing for Marc Dumont ever high school even though he dumped her unceremoniously. Marc is pretty wary of Allie’s voodoo heritage especially since it was her great-great-grandma that cursed his family in the first place. Fate throws them together when Marc needs a pastry chef that can delight his guests.
