Today’s friend is the Laura from FUOnlyKnew. I got to know her through the Sunday posts. She has been a wonderful supporter and reader of my blog. I am excited to see how much she enjoyed this as I just got it as a Kindle freebie. It looks like it is still free.

For Jack Shepherd, tiger shape-shifter and former soldier, life is heading for a dead end. Dead End, Florida, to be exact. When he learns that he inherited a combination pawn shop/private investigation agency from his favorite uncle, Jack’s first job is to solve his uncle’s murder. Because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
Jack Shepherd returns from a military mission to find that his uncle has died and he’s now co-owner of his pawn shop and private investigation agency. Before he can even get his head around the idea that he’ll be sharing ownership with Tess, a fiery woman from his past, a dead body is literally thrown on their doorstep. His were tiger growl vibrates the rafters when he discovers his uncle didn’t just die. He was murdered in the same brutal manner. There’s a mystery to be solved and time’s a wasting.
The fur flies as Tess and Jack accept the fact they have to work together to get the job done. The chemistry between the two is like static electricity. Steamy and chaotic. He delights in teasing her, ruffling her feathers until he gets the heated response he wants and needs. She tries hard to remain indifferent and professional. But who can resist a tiger’s purrs. I loved these two together, whether fighting each other or loving each other, their interactions were such fun.
In a town named Dead End, I expected some quirky characters, strange occurrences and a whole lot of laughs. I got all of that and a delicious romance.
Will I read more of this Tiger’s Eye Mystery series? Oh yes. I have to see what else happens to my new favorite couple and I want to revisit the exotic shop and see if something even weirder than a ratty old stuffed gator is brought in to pawn. Dead End, Florida is my kind of wacky town.
