Wow, I loved this book. I could not put it down and I want more! I loved the idea of the F.R.E.A.K.S. squad and I love all of the characters. You feel like you get to know them right along with Bea and you come to care for them. I loved Bea and how her character deals with stress and how she toughens up during this mission. Her love triangle between Oliver and Will is spot on. It is rare to want the main character to be with both, and I must say I cannot pick between the two. I love them both. I really hope she doesn’t have to pick between the two but I know she must at some point. The action and gross factor are well written and very believable. I feel Ms. Harlow did a fantastic job of keeping the reader entertained. I cannot wait for more!

Book Blurb for Mind Over Monsters

Beatrice Alexander is no ordinary schoolteacher—she can move objects with her mind, an embarrassing skill she hasn’t yet mastered or embraced. After nearly killing her brother by accident, she joins the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad, the Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals. This top-secret branch of the FBI combats ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters threatening humanity.

With her teammates—among them a handsome former-detective werewolf and an annoying Don Juan vampire who’s dead-set on seducing her—Beatrice investigates her first case. Disgustingly dismembered bodies have turned up, bearing bite marks of the undead. Someone—or something—is raising a horde of hideous, bloodthirsty zombies. Armed with Bette, her trusty machete, Beatrice takes on the master of the flesh-devouring corpses, who’s guarding a horrifying secret . . .

Featuring a team of monster hunters with unique paranormal abilities, the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad Investigation series combines humor, suspense, and supernatural crime-fighting.
