    I have to tell you, reviews I wrote in 2011 were pretty shitty. Bad enough that I only had the vaguest idea of the plot. So, I've erased 2011 and decided to be more explicit. You're welcome, Future carol. The second in a series, Pack of Lies continues to center on Bonita Torres and ...

    3.5 Stars I read the first book in this series, Hard Magic in August of 2014, and I'm having trouble remembering a lot of the plot and specifics regarding the characters. It was a pleasant enough read, but definitely felt light. In fact, I even recommended it for those looking for...

    A solid 3-star, but never even close to being a 4. With the introductions out of the way, there was more time to explore the team and its dynamic. While I enjoyed how the worked the case and nobody was too annoying, I still can't feel a strong connection to any of the characters. Wi...

    A very Cranky 3 stars There were some really interesting things about this book that would definitely be a fun read for a lot of people interested in this genre ? (it's like your typical crime scene procedural/ let's solve the mystery but with magic ala urban fantasy) but.... the...

    I loved the first book in this series but this one has some serious problems. First off the POV is limited to Bonnie but the big mystery within the group is Ian's sister who has set out to destroy the paranormal investigators that her brother co-runs. And there's not a good enough reas...

    Unfortunately this main character was built up to be a 22yo club girl...which she just wasn't. So she has casual sex, but wait no then she says all her relationships are relationships, and knows what four clubs are called and gets in with the bouncer. None of these details went very fa...

    The author often rehashes details from the previous book, to the extent it feels like it would be considerably shorter without their inclusion. The relationship between the characters - especially the protagonist and her boss - is at times deeply cliched and somewhat cringe-inducing. T...

    Pack of Lies is the second of the Paranormal Scene Investigations, as the publisher calls the urban fantasies about Bonita Torres, Talent (that?s a human magic-user to you) and now a PUPI, a Private Unaffiliated Paranormal Investigator. That unaffiliated part is important, because Bo...

    The PUPI team gets a case that seems pretty open and shut. However, they quickly realize things are much more complicated. Tensions rise between the humans and the fatae and it will only take a single spark to ignite a dangerous showdown. Its up to the team to get to the bottom of the ...
