Capitola Jones, half shape-shifter, is partnered with Shar, half Succubus, and Moo, an Alfar, to create Triptych. Triptych helps people, more over supernatural people, "find" things. But an old friend of Capitola's family suggested her business could help the human priest, along with her father whom is of the highest regard in her opinion. The case: The Priest is a Principal at an all girls Catholic private school and every three months girls are leaving, performing strange sexual acts along with sacrifices then disappearing. And no one can find the "man" behind it. The three ladies find themselves undercover in the Catholic private all girls school. LOL! Oh yes, a half succubus in an all girls school. hee hee. Oh this was a nice new setting! I loved these three ladies. This is the same world as in the Jane True series, but these are three new ladies to us. And three I do hope to see again in the future. So being the Jane True world, there is magic around and part of the case. They made me chuckle and smile. They are quite a team. They may not see eye to eye on some things, but they love each other dearly, like sisters. These ladies are completely different in personality yet blend so wonderfully. This book is full of mystery. I kept wondering who the guilty party was, or if we even had the right suspects. Mixed with the mystery is Nicole's fun and snarkiness. I have to say in the end I chuckled, as the joke was made, but it reminded me of an Adult Scooby-Doo episode, with out the dog of course and with three ladies, no men. I don't want to say to much and give the story away, since it is a short story. But it is fun.

Cappie, Moo and Shar are supernatural private investigators. This sets up a great premise for a series(I hope). Peeler has just the right mix of paranormal and great characters with a mystery to investigate. I hope to see more with the Triptych company.
