Under Suspicion

The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles, #3

Sophie Lawson works as the head of the Fallen Angel Department at the Underworld Detection Agency. Her co-workers are vampires, witches and other mystical creatures whose magic has no effect on her so she can see things that other humans would miss. So when a number of her demon clients end up missing, Sophie becomes concerned that they have become the target of a force determined to get rid of the paranormal element. Determined to solve the case, Sophie becomes too close to the identity of the killer and finds that mysterious accidents start happening around her. If she doesn’t solve this case soon, Sophie may find herself the next victim.

This is the third book in the Underworld Detection Agency series and for me this series keeps getting better and better. I had to refresh myself with this series by rereading the first two novels to remember what has happened so far. Sophie is such an interesting character because she works at an agency where paranormal beings are everywhere and their magic has absolutely no effect on her. She has a gorgeous guardian angel named Will who is in the friend zone and a missing love interest who is doing an investigation in Buffalo. She is very much the damsel-in-distress and it is amazing to see what kind of predicaments she finds herself in.

I can’t tell you how many times this book made me laugh. Nina is so entertaining as Sophie’s vampire best friend who just happens to be dating a writer who doesn’t believe in vampires. She had some of the best lines in this book and it makes me smile thinking about them. I liked the pacing of this book and the mystery had me guessing who the culprit was up until the very end. Under Suspicion is a fun read that is very entertaining and will make you wonder what mystery Sophie is going to help solve next.

Book Blurb for Under Suspicion

Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted. It's also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld. Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately. But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone's nightmare. And her investigation is testing her bravery - and Will's unexpected vulnerability - in ways neither could predict. Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike.
