Mudflat Toy Boy [Mudflat 3] (Bookstrand Publishing)by Phoebe Matthews
Between working two jobs in Seattle to pay the bills, Claire fights off con-men and ex-boyfriends and tries to supervise a teenager. All Claire really wants is a little peace and a lot of quality time with her guy. But at least her current problems are all human. And then a nonhuman murderer moves into the neighborhood and targets Claire. It's enough to make a fortuneteller wish she didn't know any magic. As her small bit of inherited skill compounds her troubles, she and Tarvik must depend on wits and sword to survive. Will they find the Saran wrap in time? ** "After years of writing astrology articles for national magazines, I started playing around with the idea of an astrologer coping with modern life while caught between Seattle reality and neighborhood magic. In that spot, a girl needs a hero. So that's when I dreamed up Tarvik, an irresistible guy whose solutions are sometimes scarier than the problems." ~ Phoebe ~ ** A BookStrand Mainstream Romance

This is the third book in the Mudflat series, a paranormal adventure series set in Seattle. And this is the third book in the series to be nominated for a national EPPIE award. The 2010 awards will be announced in March, 2010.
Phoebe Matthews skillfully balances a stand alone story and an extension of her Mudflat series. Claire's astrological and magical abilities are challenged by a new creature of evil. Tarvik is a sexy and engaging hero. Other inhabitants of Mudflat are also well-protrayed and often humorous.
