Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
Jordan Hawk’s series continues with a holiday short sure to please as much as a hand-crafted piece of chocolate. It’s just delightful!
Roland is a wolf shifter and a familiar who is also a mystery writer. He’s happy his writing career is a success because he knew he’d be on his own with no partner for the rest of his life. After all, no one wants a wolf familiar. He learned that the hard way, when after the first time he shifted, his parents kicked him out in fear of their lives. On his own since those early years, he has no desire to seek a mate. And yet, at a small restaurant one night, he meets a waiter whom he easily recognizes as his witch.
Augustus (Gus) Cao, is really only posing as a waiter when he spots the cute guy in the restaurant. Gus is actually undercover, trying to find out more about a scheme involving a hex that captivates the viewer’s attention. When he follows his targets out of the restaurant late one night and ends up trapped in an alley, he’s shocked when Roland shows up to rescue him.
Though the story is short, the author managed to develop their characters, give them a background, build a relationship, throw in an adventure and some angst, and at last, give Roland the happiness he deserves with the handsome investigator.
Highly recommend to all, especially those already hooked on this series.
The cover by Alli Smith features black-and-white headshots of both MCs with a lower border of sky blue.
