If you love books where the animals are the stars then this romantic suspense novel is for you.
It has a very sexy hero in Zach and a feisty, gutsy heroine in Hannah but Abbott and Costello make this a 5 star read for me.
Abbott is a cat with an ‘A’ list superiority complex but a heart of gold and Costello is a lovable if slightly dim dog. These two remind me of the Siamese cat detectives Koko and Yum Yum in the Lilian Jackson Braun ‘The Cat who…’ series, which I also love.
The plot is interesting and many layered with lots of twists which kept me turning the pages. Coupled with the paranormal element, which allows Abbott and Costello to become fully fledged characters it is an enjoyable read full of comedy, suspense and romance.
The romance between Hannah and Zach is fraught with obstacles, most stem from their inner demons. The sexual tension dominates the story and culminates in a sensual love scene which further increases the pressure on their new romance. At the end of the story you feel they’ve earned their ‘Happy Ever After’.
Supported by an array of fascinating secondary characters I can’t wait to see what happens in book two of this trilogy.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
