Description (from Goodreads)

Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Cassie Scot seems to have it made. She has a wealthy family and she’s able to have her own detective agency at the age of 21 even though she has no clients yet. Everyone in Cassie’s family is magical except for her which makes her feel like an outsider. She’s a very independent woman in many ways but she learns the importance of friends and family as well as not to take things, or people, for granted.

The setting for this story is a town on Tablerock Lake which I’ve been to many times because I only live a couple of hours from there. Being a little familiar with the setting of a book always makes it a little more interesting, although this book didn’t need help in that area. It grabbed my attention from the beginning and I couldn’t put it down. I have the second book to read and it is next on my list. I have to see what Cassie is up to now!
