Hot Trick by Patricia Rosemoor
She's a cop, a very good one. She doesn't believe in magic. But her boyfriend is half-Vampire, so it's hard to pretend things like paranormal and magic don't exist.
Carina Press and Net Galley shared a copy of this ebook with me for review (thank you). The book was published the 10th of this month, so it's available for purchase now.
This is a fast-paced story with lots of twists and turns in it. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Too much was happening and I had to see what would come next...
I enjoyed the mix of magic, the twists of family relationships, and the murder mystery at the base of the story. The author does a good job of giving you a meaty story with surprises hidden here and there.
It all starts when a banshee tells Shelley that a person is going to drown in a trunk. She knows a magician is going to try that trick, so she goes to the performance. He lives, but a woman in a car trunk elsewhere doesn't.
She suspects the magician may be the killer, but the deaths appear to be to people who were related to a court case Shelley had been involved in. Why would he want to kill them?
The plot is interesting and much more complicated than it first appears. I very much enjoyed this read and highly recommend it if you like fantasy. Why not give this one a try?
