He's a PI who turns into a tiger.
She can see how you'll die.
The bad guys never stood a chance.
EYE OF DANGER: The longest and most twisty installment of the Tiger's Eye mysteries yet!
When Tess Callahan's long-lost and presumed-dead father comes back to town, running from the mob, she's not sure how to feel. But when she finds out the bad guys are really after her, to use her "gift" as a weapon, she knows exactly who to turn to.
When Jack Shepherd must confront mob bigwigs, a rogue vampire, and Tess's dad all in the same day, he realizes that small towns can be every bit as deadly as the rebellion he led when he was a soldier. Tess is in trouble, and there's no way Jack will let anything happen to her—they haven't even gone on their first date!
Welcome to Dead End, Florida, where the pawnshop never, ever deals in vampire teeth. And welcome to the Tiger's Eye Mysteries!
Beware! This novel contains: magic, shape shifters, humor, vampires, a taxidermied alligator, mob bosses, assassins, a missing father, in-law jokes, gunshots, bad singing, delicious baked goods, terrible parking, the FBI, swamp commandos, tigers, special agents, flirting, belly laughs, comedy, humor, and a pawn shop.
I decided that since my attention span for 2020 has leaned towards non-existent, that I need shorter books. I also want happy and lighthearted and fun. This series is all of those things so I spent the week re-reading and binge-reading the Tiger’s Eye Mysteries.
Jack is a tiger shifter who if you’ve read Alyssa Day’s Warriors of Poseidon, you might recognize. He was a badass soldier who led the rebellion. Now he runs a small investigative agency that is connected to a pawn shop in Dead End, Florida. The pawn shop is run by Tess and the two of them have been trying to have a first date for a while now, yet something always gets in the way. This time it’s her deadbeat father and possible the Irish mob. In a town like Dead End, it could be anything.
I enjoy the humor in these books and it’s nice to see a different side of Jack. You get the feeling that he’s happy to be done with a life of violence and death, and he wants nothing more than to settle back into small-town living. With Tess, possibly?
This series reminds of of a funnier and more enjoyable Sookie Stackhouse vibe. Alyssa Day’s sense of humor really works for me, and this series allows it to shine. I had to buy the next book in the series to find out if they ever got to go on their first date!
*This series stands alone. You don’t need to read the Warriors of Poseidon
