C.E. Murphy is a new author for me – Thunderbird Falls is book two of her second series.
Again, this is something I grabbed off the paperback shelves at the library – it had a sci-fi fantasy sticker, and the blurb on the back was promising.
Once I got it home, and read the reviews inside the cover, I was a little worried to realize that it`s published by the Luna group – which is slanted to more romantic fiction. But, I survived, and the story was enjoyable. The only part that didn`t quite work for me was the slightly heavy-handed comments our heroine makes about her attractions to her Captain. I almost wonder if those were dropped in afterwards, to help it fit the rom-fan target.
So, the main character is Joanne Walker, originally named Siobhan Walkingstick, a young beat cop in Seattle. Three months ago (in book one 😉 ) she ended up in a mystic battle and had to choose either the responsibilities of a shaman, or death. Guess which she chose…
Anyhow, she discovers a dead body, and mysteries ensue. Fun.
I`ll add her to my to-read list.
