There was so much potential in this book. Restaurant backdrop, chef vs. bartender and vampires! However, the transfigured ones or vampires, which are interesting isn’t really explored. There isn’t much detail about them or sunlight or origin or anything like that. It was almost like adding vampires was an afterthought. The sex is also very stiff and not in a good way. It was sort of like going through the motions without the emotion. It is a shame because this was a great plot and great characters. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for this author in the future.
Short, but amusing book. Cassidy has a prize-winning (literally) pooch that’s been dog-napped and turns to Diamond & Diamond PIs to help find the dog. Mike Diamond hasn’t been in the business long and gets assigned the case. He doesn’t think much of it, and much less (initially) of a woman who’d spend money looking for a dog, and so the sparks fly from the first meeting where they can’t stand each other.
It doesn’t take long for either the dog-napping case or the romance to move forward. The only part I didn’t care for was how pretty obvious it was who was behind the dog-napping. I did like the push and pull between Cassidy and Mike simply because their backgrounds were so different. It’s enjoyable and sweet. Not very spicy (aka sexy), but that’s okay. It was an engaging story and I recommend anyone who likes romance and mystery mixed together.
