Mojo Mysteries, Book 1

Three years after solving the hundred-year-old murder case that brought them together, Greg Woodhall and Adrian Broussard have settled into life together in the colorful college town of Chapel Hill. Adrian’s doctorate research and Greg’s two jobs keep them busy, but they have each other and life is good.

When Greg is offered the chance to help Bay City Paranormal scope out the historic PlayMakers Theater’s rumored spirits, he’s excited to get involved—at first. But as the protoplasmic trail unexpectedly shifts to DogOpolis, where Greg works part time, he senses something in the air besides the mouthwatering aroma of gourmet hot dogs.

There’s an entity that the team can’t quite get a handle on, but it’s creating havoc in Greg’s relationship with Adrian. Things that leave him doubting his own sanity. When the team finally uncovers the truth, no one is prepared for the danger—or what they’ll have to do to stop the thing plaguing DogO before it stops them. Permanently.

Product Warnings
This book contains a spooky mystery, unusual hot dog toppings, and a fast food joint that may or may not be haunted. May cause random hot dog cravings.

My View:

I really enjoyed this story! And yes, it did cause hot cravings!

The mystery was fun and kept me interested from the very start. I loved that each time I was sure I knew the outcome, the author revealed that I was wrong. What seemed so obvious to me, turned out to be a distraction from what was really happening. I love when I can’t predict the story!

I liked seeing Adrian and Greg years after their first story. I wasn’t so sure about them after reading Love, Like Ghosts, so it was nice to see them developing a life together. I  liked seeing that they were still not perfect and that just like any relationship, they had growing pains, but their love was strong enough for them to work through their problems. I still like Adrian with all his quirks and in this story, I even formed a connection to Greg since I was finally allowed to see things for his POV.

What I liked most about this novel was  that while there was a thread of the romantic, which two established couples being involved, it was just enough to be loving while not taking away from the story itself. The mystery was the main focus and the love between Adrian and Greg and Sam and Bo just made it better. I enjoyed the balance it brought to the story but loved that it was treated as a normal part of the characters.

I am loving this series and can’t wait to read the next story. And I will be going back and reading the Bay City Paranormal Investigation series as soon as I am finished with the Mojo Mysteries.
