Review by Leslee of Night Owl Romance
This is the second book in the Nocturne City series. It takes up three months after the events in Night Life.
Luna has just returned to her job as a homicide detective. Her first night back she catches a case of a body found in an alley. It appears to be an OD, overdose, but the ME discovers signs that the victim was deprived of oxygen. Several people at the scene allude to Luna’s other nature and she is almost killed by another junkie fleeing the area. Then she arrives at the precinct to discover her new boss, Captain Matilda Morgan, would love to find a reason to fire her. Just another wonderful day in the life of an Insoli were. To top it off, she gets a partner dumped on her. Barbie doll looks and a perky package sum up the first impression of Shelby O’Halloran. When things don’t add up on the tox report for the body in the alley and Luna stumbles upon another victim, it looks like they have a full blown case on their hands. Will Luna be able to forget Dmitri and focus on working with her partner to solve the case instead of planning Shelby’s demise?
What an incredible follow up to Night Life! Caitin Kittredge is a talent on the rise! The mystery kept me guessing and I was taken by surprise by several events. We learn more about Luna and what makes her tick. The depth of emotion that bled onto the page when she thought about Dmitri was intense. The fight scenes were raw and a couple of times I was flinching in my seat with the damage being done. Ms. Kittredge writes so well that you are literally right there feeling the blows. I can’t imagine what is in store for us in Second Skin coming March 2009 but I will be waiting with bated breath!
