Blurb:

Miriam Diaz has lived as a suburban mom on Seattle’s Eastside for the past seventeen years. She serves on the parent teacher association, bakes for her daughter’s cheer squad, and is an all-around champion stay-at-home mom. Pretty average and totally boring, and Miriam likes it that way. All the better to hide her sordid past.

When a hellhound shows up in her neighbor’s begonias, and Miriam banishes the stinky mutt back to where it came from, she let her evil ex know she’s still alive and kicking…and likely in possession of something she stole from him.

Miriam doesn’t only have trouble brewing from below. The banishment also alerts the supernatural cops. When a gorgeous alpha of the shifter pack starts sniffing around her hedges, Miriam fears the news might go all the way to the archangel that she isn’t a latent but a full-blown witch. Miriam isn’t a registered supernatural and for a good reason, she’s hiding something big from the authorities above and below.

All of the commotion threatens the veil hiding the separating the mundanes and the supes. Miriam might just have to come out of the supernatural closet to save the world. Again.

My Review:

While I enjoyed this book I felt it was a little long. The romance was okay but what I really appreciated was the female characters supporting one another

I am so glad there is a growing trend with older female main characters. A woman with life experience has so much depth and knows the priorities in life.

As I grow older myself I no longer identify with the characters in Young/new adult. I still enjoy them but there is something about someone mature still being able to kick ass, have a romantic interest and children that appeals to me.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
