This is a good, solid new release week for me. Shelly Laurenston‘s In a Badger Way will be my breezy, light read, and Maria Vale‘s Forever Wolf will be my moody, darker book. But neither of them are my pick of the week. That title goes to Evil Eye from Alyssa Day – I hope. This one has been shifted around, pushed back and delayed so many times that I am going to have to see it downloaded to my Kindle on the 28th before I believe it will really be coming out. I am working my way towards cautiously optimistic, though. Book two of the Tiger’s Eye Mystery series was released waaaay back in April 2016, and I have been not-so-patiently waiting ever since.
When swarms of treasure hunters descend on Dead End in search of legendary pirate Captain Pierre Arneaux’s fabled lost gold, chaos crashes down on the normally quiet town.
When the only treasure chests found have corpses instead of coins, Jack has to spring into action. Because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
Tess Callahan, who owns a pawn shop in the strangest town in Florida, is barely over the last dead bodies on her doorstep when her new private investigator neighbor asks for her help again.
But it’s her town, and she’ll take on anybody to protect it. Even treasure hunters, vampire slayers, and the ghost of a certain French pirate who still thinks he’s in charge.
Welcome to Dead End, Florida, where ghosts can get jaywalking tickets too. And welcome to the Tiger’s Eye Mysteries!
This series is the only one of its “type” that I read, and I really like it. Jack was my stand-out from the long ago Warriors of Poseidon series, and I always felt like he got the short end of the stick when his stand-alone story was nixed, so I was particularly excited to see him get his own series. Has anyone else been waiting for this one like I have?
