Review @valeromance - Murder by Magic by Catherine Vale

Murder by Magic
by Catherine Vale

Goodreads blurb:  As the youngest detective—and only—woman in the homicide unit, Jessica Sharpe quickly discovers that being promoted to lead Detective isn’t all that she thought it would be. When a series of gruesome murders takes place, she is the one responsible for finding the killer, before they strike again.

Crime reporter by day, and Gatekeeper to a world of magic by night, Euros Desard thinks he’s seen it all. That’s all about to change when he discovers that dark magic is behind a series of brutal murders, and that the portal between the two worlds is about to be blown wide open.

Despite a history of bad blood and broken hearts, the two of them must come together if they stand a chance of protecting their worlds from the darkness that threatens to invade. Time is running out, and if they don’t learn to work together, not even magic will be able to save them. 

About the Author:  Catherine Vale has been writing fiction for as long as she can remember, but it wasn’t until she wrote her very first paranormal romance story that she found herself hooked on the raw, edgy love affair of shifters, vampires and other dominant alpha males and the captivating women that love them.

Catherine Vale writes both contemporary and paranormal romance for readers who are willing to take a walk on the wild side of love.  Her stories always include powerful alpha males, smart and sassy heroines and a happily-ever-after (even if she often put her characters through hell to get there!)

My Thoughts – 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

The cover is very magical, and I definitely like it!

I’m not sure if this book is going to be a series.  So at this time, it is a standalone book that is romantic suspense.

I like the world created in this book though there were times when it was slow.  Of course, this is just my opinion and happens in books where is it the first one and building the world.  I’m an action girl, so take my opinion accordingly.  I love Catherine’s creativity and wish I had even a smidgen of it.  This is the reason why I love to read and escape into new worlds.  In this one, you have magic and magical creatures.

Jessica is a strong and amazing person, so I really liked her character.  Her boss and a couple detectives were jerks, but it is unfortunately to be expected in a boys club.  I think I hated Euros in the beginning, and I don’t know that I completely understand him.  You will have to read the book to see what I mean in regards to Jessica.  It will be interesting to see if this becomes a series or not.

I recommend this book to paranormal fans who love dimensional romantic suspense!
