Rabbits! Lots and lots of rabbits! And what’s up with this weather?

These were only the beginning of Fawn Malero’s problems, but they coincided with a vampire wedding-of-the-century coming to town and that made them a top priority. And as Logan began to take on more duties as pack Alpha, her loyalties were being tested by everyone. Could she run part of the city and part of the pack?

Then the burglaries started... of human homes, threatening exposure!

Being pulled in so many directions, Fawn feared she was failing her father and the supernaturals of Seattle leaving them open for challengers to their authority. Will Fawn's ability to enlist the help of other supernaturals be enough? Or will they finally see that she doesn't have what it takes to keep Seattle safe and its supernaturals hidden?

“----, I need to get a dress for Saturday,” I said as thoughts of the wedding crashed into me. The wedding was quickly approaching, and I was running out of time to find a dress. I was also running out of time to solve the plagues of rabbits and weather anomalies. I looked outside at the bright sun, it was warm today, too warm. “Is it warmer than yesterday?”

“Probably,” Jasmine said around her spoon of peanut butter. She’d been eating buckets of the stuff lately. She’d probably be showing in the next couple of weeks, and she was going to be the cutest pregnant lady, I was certain.

“News says the heat is setting new records the last couple days,” Evie said. She was always good for a news report since she loved to watch the handsome Werewolf anchor.

Jasmine made kissy noises at Chester who was tweeting for food. He wanted her peanut butter. He swooped to her shoulder then dove for the jar. She was quick enough to dodge, then put a bit on the counter for him and sprinkled some birdseed on top. Chester hadn’t cared for her at first, but they’d become friends lately, mostly because peanut butter was his favorite treat.

“The heat is coming in like a normal weather front, it’s not centralized to the Space Needle or anywhere else. It can’t be the Warlock’s doing.” I was thinking out loud, but Tony had come in for a refill on Betina’s tea and stopped, looking thoughtful.

“But he said he was trying to fix something,” Tony said.

“What if he’s trying to fix whatever is happening with the heat? Everything he’s done has been cold, he’s fighting the heat wave,” I gasped, connecting dots in my mind.

“Fixing it,” Tony pointed out. “That means it isn’t natural and someone ------ up somewhere, still could have been him.”

“Maybe we’re approaching this all wrong. If he’s trying to fix things, he isn’t the enemy, we don’t need to catch him and stop him. We need to find him and maybe help him.” I shrugged. “Then turn him in for ------ it up in the first place if that’s what happened.” I couldn’t ignore the mess of all this and if he’d done something he’d need to take responsibility and punishment. But one thing at a time.

“How do you find a Warlock that doesn’t want to be found?” Tony asked.

Praise for the Author

A Life With Beasts (The Fawn Malero Mysteries Book 1) “A Life with Beasts is a story of intrigue and attraction that is especially recommended for mystery readers who enjoy more than a light dose of paranormal encounters and a touch of romance.”-D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

“a fun adventure/mystery. Courtney Davis brings a fresh perspective to the supernatural creatures we are all familiar with without sacrificing the original ideas associated with them. She creates an exciting world of werewolves, vampires, witches/warlocks, magicians, trolls, and many others. The book is easy to read and fast-paced. It’s a great read for the summer holidays or when you want a light, fun read. Can’t wait for the sequel! Also, there is a healthy dose of romance, which can tend to be a bit much for those who don’t read romance (like me). However, Davis has done a great job of making the romance central to the plot, so I found it quite enjoyable.”- Writa Bhattacharjee, GoodReads

“This was a fast read and I really enjoyed it. It gave me some high school Twilight memories but brought more supernatural beings into play. There were several mysteries and problems being solved but they didn't feel. I found the characters likeable and funny.”-Sara, GoodReads Supernatural P.I. (The Fawn Malero Mysteries Book 2) 

“a must read for all paranormal fantasy fans. From werewolves to vampires, to elves and witches this book has it all. My curiosity grew with each page. The plot has a lot of twists and turns. Magic, mayhem, romance issues, and so much more are included. Courtney Davis writes well. Her characters leap off the pages. There was never a dull moment. I love that I could read this and dive right into this magical world. It is the second book in the series. Courtney Davis and her mystery series are now added to my favorites.”-Urban Book Reviews

"a fantastic paranormal mystery/romance with a compelling and fun protagonist, and brilliant world building. Davis' writing is impeccable, and I enjoyed the way that she balanced the mystery, romance and comedy aspects of the novel. I also loved the way it ended! This is what all paranormal mysteries should be!”-Bee, Book

“This was a great read and one that I cannot stop thinking about! This is a madcap adventure that you are bound to have fun reading! Five stars for Fawn Malero!”-Nora, Storeybook Reviews
