Review: Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective – Christine Amsden
Cassie Scot’s life has never been normal. From the moment she was born, people thought her to be different, her own parents included. You see, she comes from a long line of sorcerers, witches, healers, and hunters. A family full of magic and secrets, one able to do the imaginable in all sorts of ways. One, she realizes she barely fits into.
Her life takes on a different turn when an unexpected offer for work lands smack-dab in the middle of her lap. Wanting to become independent, Cassie accepts the offer, never once giving thought to how much her life would change. Granted, she’s lived with the paranormal/supernatural world surrounding her from the moment she was born. Yet she’s taken into account as to how much that world dictates her every step.
Evan’s sudden appearance in her life throws her small world into a loop. She hasn’t seen him since high school, and he’s a persona-non-grata in her parents eyes. Despite her reluctance to renew her acquaintance with him, Cassie knows he’s her only link to making sense of the goings-on in their little town.
There’s a killer in their midst, and people are dying right and left. Deep inside, she knows she’ll need to figure things out before anything else goes awry. Never-the-less, she’s going to do her best in getting to the bottom of things. Even if she has to die in order to set things right in the long run.
Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective is a wonderful start to a good series. I enjoyed the story immensely. So much so, that I’m a little late in posting up this review because I was so caught up in reading the book itself. Real life got caught along the way so I didn’t have a chance to read it till 4:00 a.m. today.
Despite that fact, I must say that this book is a must-read. The twists and turns are numerous. Christine winds them about in such a way that it leaves the reader wondering as to who’s causing such mischief in Cassie’s life. The tension between her family and Evan made me wonder as to why they don’t like him much. While that aspect wasn’t quite revealed in this first book, I have a feeling that deliberate loose end will be answered soon enough. I can’t wait to read what Christine has in store for these characters soon enough. I’m hooked into this series already!
