Dead Eye by Alyssa Day

For Jack Shepherd, tiger shape-shifter and former soldier, life is heading for a dead end. Dead End, Florida, to be exact. When he learns that he inherited a combination pawn shop/private investigation agency from his favorite uncle, Jack’s first job is to solve his uncle’s murder. Because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
This novel is a paranormal mystery with magic, shape shifters, humor, vampires, a taxidermied alligator, witches, gunshots, bad singing, Crazy Hormonal Town, terrible parking, the FBI, swamp commandos, tigers, special agents, flirting, belly laughs, comedy, humor, and a pawn shop.

 

Tess is just minding her business running the pawn business when the late owner’s nephew shows up saying that he owns half of the business. Which would be fine, other than dead bodies are starting to pile up in Dead End, Florida and they all seem to be left at the doorstep of the pawnshop. Oh did I mention that the owner of the pawnshop was also dropped on the doorstep?

 

Jack is a tiger shifter and a former special ops soldier who returns home to de-stress and relax after serving. Only to discover that his abilities as both a shifter and a soldier are needed.

 

Tess however is no slouch and actually has powers of her own. Powers that she hates, and that technically spell disaster for whomever she touches. Sort of. It is complicated.

 

The book is a bit rough at the beginning and seems to be a bit overdone with Tess. I have not read any of the other books, and so apparently Jack is featured in a lot of them. So Tess is apparently a new character and so that may be why all of her emotions are overdone. Trying to make sure that she is a character that people like, especially with her working with Jack.

 

I liked this book, it was fun, had bits of humor, and really brought you into the story. This isn’t a book that you have to really think about, and that is perfect for when you want to lay on the porch with a drink and just read.

About Alyssa Day

Alyssa Day is the pen name (and dark and tortured alter ego) of RITA award-winning author Alesia Holliday. She is a multiple finalist in the prestigious RITA awards for excellence in romance fiction and has won several awards for her novels.

ATLANTIS RISING was the first of Alyssa's Warriors of Poseidon novels for Berkley Publishing, and was featured on the cover of the March, 2007, issue of Romantic Times BOOKClub magazine! Additionally, it rocked the bestseller lists, hitting the Waldenbooks, Borders, Barnes and Noble, Bookscan, and the prestigious USA Today bestseller lists! ATLANTIS AWAKENING came along several months together and did the same thing - only better!! And then her anthology SHIFTER, with authors Angela Knight, Lora Leigh, and Virginia Kantra, spent three weeks on the prestigious New York Times bestseller list!

Her publisher was thrilled, her family was thrilled (they could eat!), her dogs were thrilled (bacon!!). Now she's happily writing her fingers off, deep in the world of Atlantis, the Warriors of Poseidon, and a new exciting group of allies (??), the Fae.

Alyssa has long been an avid fan of all things Atlantis, supernatural, and in any way pertaining to lost civilizations. When she was six, she told her mother that she would discover Atlantis one day—and now she has!

In 2006, Alyssa (writing as Alesia) was awarded the Romance Writers of America’s RITA® award. The RITA is the highest award of excellence in the genre of romance fiction. If we can get this new website on track, you'll see a picture on your right of Alyssa with her agent and editor the night she won the RITA® award.
