Under A Spell by Hannah Jayne

I was waiting for this book.  It's the next in the Underworld Detective Agency Chronicles and I wanted to see how Sophie's romance develops.  It takes a strange twist in this book.

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published now, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Ms. Jayne creates a unique world with all sorts of a paranormal types.  There are vampires, fallen angels, witches, and more in town.  Sophie is unique because she's immune to magic.  Magic won't harm her.  So she's a detective trying to solve paranormal problems.

This time she's going back to high school.  She hated high school when she was there, why would she want to go back?  It turns out a student has been killed and has been marked by witches.  Could there be a coven at the school?  And why are they killing girls?

The romantic part of her life has gone by the wayside, too.  Alex is acting cold and no longer interested and she can't understand why.  Her guardian, Will, is always there and very willing to tango.  She's got a bit of a crush on Will but she really loves Alex.  Doesn't she?  She's not real sure...

This is a busy, dangerous story and I read it with enthusiasm.  I should now be able to make it to the next book.  If you haven't read any of them, start at the beginning of the series.  You can read this as a stand alone, but the whole series is good and I've really enjoyed it.  Why don't you try it?

Happy reading.
