This is definitely a series you should read in order. It takes off seamlessly from the prior book and the ending--well has you wanting that book immediately if not sooner! Cassie is still heartbroken over the way Evan just seemed to drop her and is now living with two of her friends in an apartment. A new guy comes into her life, Matthew, but he is not all he seems to be. Meanwhile there is a preacher in town who is really on a witch hunt! Cassie is working with the Sheriffs department to try and find out why people are dying or are they being murdered?
Cassie finds herself in this book, she also finds out some truths about herself that she was never told! Another book I finished in one sitting--and I can honestly say that I love the way this author writes! Of course she is darn good at leaving you hanging at the end too-------5 Star for sure!
About the book: (from Author Promo Material)
Beware your heart and soul…
Evan broke Cassie’s heart two months ago, and she still doesn’t know why. She throws herself into family, friends and her new job at the sheriff’s department, but nothing helps. The only thing that finally allows her heal and move on is the love of a new man, mind mage Matthew Blair. Cassie finds him…irresistible.
Matthew may also be the only one who can help keep the non-magical residents of Eagle Rock from going crazy over the murder of a beloved pastor’s wife. It looks like a sorcerer is to blame, but while Cassie tries to figure out who, others take matters into their own hands. With tensions running so hot, a single spark might set Eagle Rock ablaze.
Praise for the Cassie Scot Series
From Publisher’s Weekly:
“Amsden continues the story of the only mundane member of a supernaturally-gifted family in this middling sequel to Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective. Cassie, stubborn and proud, is bravely trying to live on her own after her family disowns her. Struggling to make ends meet, she accepts a case involving a pair of magical girls who disappeared from summer camp. With the aid of the
handsome Evan Blackwood, to whom Cassie is attracted despite her family’s disapproval and her own better judgment, she follows the trail of the missing girls. What she finds is a dark side of the magical world, and the hidden depths of her family’s past force her to reconsider long-held assumptions. The growing complexity of Cassie’s world makes this an entertaining installment,
focusing as much on the will-they, won’t-they romantic chemistry between Cassie and Evan as on the primary mystery. An inconclusive ending is clearly intended to feed into the next volume.”
Kim Falconer, bestselling author of The Spell of Rosette, Quantum Enchantment Series, had this to say: “When sorcerers call the shots, what’s a girl without powers to do? Get ready for a ripper of a murder mystery full of romance and intrigue, where magic potions bubble, passions spark and vampires are definitely not your friend. Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective grabs you by the heart and won’t let go until the very last page. Well written, immersive and unputdownable. This is urban fantasy at its best. More please!”
