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?

Happy reading.
