If I was to sum up this book in one sentence it would be, Murder Mystery Vampires style. Armand Argeneau seems to be having a streak of bad luck with women. Most specifically, his wives have a habit of dying. Armand withdrew from his family and friends in the hope that the deaths will stop. He gave up his children to be raised by others in the hope that they would be spared. Enter Eshe d’Aureus who is an enforcer sent to investigate the deaths of Armand’s three wives’ and his daughter in law Annie.
Just to complicate matters a little bit further, Eshe is Armand’s life mate. Can they solve the mystery surrounding the deaths before either of them becomes a casualty?
Things I loved about this book. This time around both the main characters are vampires and have been for a long time. Both of them have also had life mates and children. Because of this, both the lead characters show a maturity that I found to be very appealing. The acceptance by both of them of being each others life mate I believe added to the story. There was a little bit of angst on Armand’s side because of the deaths however it was fleeting. The book spent most of the time on “whodunit” and I was reading as fast as I could to find out just who the killer was.
I really enjoyed this book and would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
