From the beginning I really liked this story. I'm a fan of both paranormals and mysteries, so combine the two and I'm in reader heaven. I liked both Reya and Lorenzo, although being half animal, they came across as everyday people and also a couple with a broken past who will hopefully find their way back to one another.
The dialogue is very realistic and their past love and tragedy is slowly revealed. The author does an excellent job of not throwing too much at you at once and as you read on, you begin to understand why these two are apart. They also shared a loss (I won't give it away) which makes them very sympathetic and you end up cheering when it looks like they'll find happiness at last. Sex scenes are more seductive than graphic and placed well in the story. Setting was ideal and really added to the storyline.
Secondary characters were perfect too and the story although short (the book is 83 pages long but the actual story is just 67 pages -- there are three other short stories in this book, all part of the Ghost Cat series. All are a fun, quick read and an extra bonus to this story), was in fact long enough for me. It held my interest from the first word until the last.
Even if you're don't think you'll enjoy a paranormal romance, I'd encourage you to pick this one up. It's a fun and enjoyable read, a good mystery and I'll be looking for more books by Jaycee Clark.
