The Case of The Cupid Curse

Sam Enderson is a human detective who inherits a building from where his Uncle used to run a detective agency. He finds himself working for paranormal creatures despite his resolve to stick with humans only. To supplement his income as a new PI Sam rents out rooms in the large house.
Bob is a vampire and turns up on Sam’s doorstep to rent a room. Sparks fly and Sam is attracted to the vampire despite himself.
Sam is cursed by a witch, and has two cases landing on his desk. Werewolves, annoying ghosts and a grumpy gargoyle are enough to drive Sam mad. But somehow in amongst all of this he has to find a missing fae and a missing shifter child.

So I’ve and enjoy both of these authors separately.This was my first time reading them together.

This book contains two stories, the second story or case starts in the first and finds it’s resolution in the second so you need to read both in order. Both being only about 100 pages each.

 

We start with Sam inheriting a home and business from an uncle  who we are learning that Sam may have had rose colored glasses on for. Sam always thought of him as this PI, great guy fighting evil. His only bad mark being that he helped the paranormal community. Sam has this unhealthy aversion to the para community. After Sam breaks up with his cheating boyfriend he gets his PI license and reopens the business making a point to only take human cases. This is not working out so well for him.

Bob is a vampire that answers the ad Sam placed for a flatmate. As Sam tries to reject Bob, Bob inserts himself into Sam’s life and the more they work the case together the more Sam realizes that at least this one para isn’t so bad.

The dry yet quirky humor through the book is entertaining. The little pieces of sub story that come out later. The para that are around the home already, Teddy the ghost, the gargoyle. Give us a fun one liners to add to the story. But also add to the main story.

The case Sam gets hired to solve is basic missing person but ends up being so much more. With more players and more victims. But once it’s solved with the help of his new friends the token of reward may be more than then he bargained for.

Book two which once again starts in book one is a kidnapping of the worst kind. Young girls.  Once the plot is understood, we all realize that these girls are captured young and than held until they become more mature. As everyone races against the clock to find them, old friendships are forged and lovers find that they were never forgotten after all.

We also discover that the ex-boyfriend may not be gone from the picture after all. And Sam may not be as human as he thinks or wishes.

As the girls are returned to the families and Thanks is given, Sam and Bob soon realize that maybe Sam won’t be able to give up the para’s after all.

Overall both books are very entertaining, quick reads, easy to get lost in the story while waiting for a plane, train for a raining afternoon in Fl, like I read them.
