Charley Davidson, Book 13.6
Synopsis: The job should have been easy.
Get in. Assess the situation. Get out. But for veteran tracker Quentin Rutherford, things get sticky when the girl he’s loved since puberty shows up, conducting her own investigation into the strange occurrences of the small, New Mexico town. He knew it would be a risk coming back to the area, but he had no idea Amber Kowalski had become a bona fide PI, investigating things that go bump in the night. He shouldn’t be surprised, however. She can see the dead as clearly as he can. The real question is, can she see through him?
But is anything that’s worth it ever easy?
To say Amber is shocked to see her childhood crush would be the understatement of her fragile second life. One look at him tells her everything she needs to know. He’s changed. So drastically she barely recognises him. He is savage now, a hardened – in all the right places – demon hunter, and she is simply the awkward, lovestruck girl he left behind.
But she doesn’t have time to dwell on the past. A supernatural entity has set up shop, and it’s up to them to stop it before it kills again.
While thousands of questions burn inside her, she has to put her concern over him, over what he’s become, aside for now. Because he’s about to learn one, undeniable fact: she’s changed, too.
Review: I was really looking forward to diving back into a novella in the Charley Davidson series and getting back to the characters.
We follow Quentin and Amber this time around, after a few years and I was thrilled to see them again! They are surprised to run into each other but their feelings are still there. But they both have secrets and they will have to work together to find and eliminate the entity that is in town and leaving bodies behind.
I was a little disturbed by the use of the third person in this novel. It threw me off a lot at first. That aside, it was a nice discovery. Of course, it’s a quick read, it’s a new one, but I was happy to go back into the universe.
