Where did it come from?  Many thanks to Tracee at Pump up Your Book for sending me a copy of this book to read.
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 14 November 2013
Why do I have it? I like paranormal mysteries and have read and enjoyed Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective by the same author in the past.

Still reeling from her parents' betrayal, Cassie Scot is determined to leave the world of magic behind her. But the magical world isn't letting go that easily. Her family is imploding, and despite everything, Cassie may be the only one powerful enough to save them.

To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan Blackwood her life, making it extremely difficult to deny him anything he truly wants. And Evan apparently wants Cassie. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls who go missing from a summer camp in the mountains. But long-buried secrets just may derail their chances at future happiness.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The story picked up relatively close to where Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective left off, and while the cliff-hanger certainly did its job - it had me sitting on the edge of my seat, ready to scream with frustration - the further development of the characters, and the pace of the plot drew me in from page one. I'm eagerly awaiting Book 3, because I definitely want to know what happens next.

A! - (90-95%)

May you read well and often
