Synopsis

Camille Ellis has tracked many killers during her career,but this time, it’s personal. Cut off from conclave resources, she won’t let a small thing like a suspension keep her from accepting Cord Graeson’s offer of help.

Pretending to be mated to him is one way to secure allies, but the best that can be said of the Chandler Pack is they haven’t killed or eaten her. Yet. Between the alpha’s displeasure and the pack’s distrust of fae, she’s working overtime to keep her head above water.

Just when the fur starts to fly, a tip cracks her case–and her life–wide open.

The Review

I really enjoyed book 1 so naturally book 2 needs to be read.  If you haven’t read book 1 then just FYI there are some spoilers ahead.
You can also read y review of book 1 here.
We pick up right where book one left off. Cam has been suspended from the case she was working on, but her friend Harlow is missing and she won’t stop looking for her. So when Graeson offers to help her solve the case she accepts.
Cam and her aunt Dot and cousin Isaac are invited to Chandler pack lands but as they arrived they are greeted with a lot of animosities due to their fae nature,
Ellis and Graeson are pretending to be mated so it all becomes a bit tricky with Cord is at the center of a pack rift which means the alpha Bessemer could make working the case to find Harlow a lot harder than it needs to be.
Just when Cord and Cam think they might have all the clues things start to go pear-shaped.
What did I like?
The book was by far much better than book 1. It was truly awesome from start to finish. The characters, the plot and the action, now this is the Hailey Edwards I love.
We get to learn a bit more about Cam’s aunt Dot and her cousin Isaac and plus an incite into how powerful Cam could really be if she wasn’t so afraid of her gift. I really liked Dell,she seemed a bit strange in book 1 but her we see her strength and loyalty to Cord. I loved the action in the book, then again I enjoy reading about wolves.
Again we see briefly encounter Ellis and Mai, which was nice but seemed completely unnecessary, but if I know the author from previous books, that little piece will be part of a bigger story somewhere down the line.
Finally some romance, I enjoyed it the Cord and Cam moments and kept wishing for more, I hope there is much more in book 3.
It seemed like the story was going around in circles with finding Harlow and in the end …. well I won’t give that spoiler!
A superb book 2 if I do say so myself! Book 3 I can already tell will be S-H-A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
