Determined to find the parties responsible, Jane soon discovers a sinister cult leader has decided to make Bright Falls, Michigan the home of his corrupt religion. 

As if this wasn't complicating her life enough, Jane also has to decide whether or not she wants to begin a relationship with FBI Special Agent Alex Timmons or local crime lord Lucien Lyons. Both men are determined to get to the bottom of the crime she's investigating but may be distracted by their own agendas--as well as their love for Jane.

An American Weredeer in Michigan (Bright Falls Mysteries #2)Bright Falls, Michigan used to be just a kitschy speck on the map, a quirky little town filled with shapeshifters, magic users, a crime lord or two and Jane Doe, weredeer. Now the town shaman, Jane has her hands full, or so she thought until she is called in to assist in the investigation of a mass grave. To her horror, the victims appear to be part of a twisted cult ritual and the crazed leader is proving to be a formidable foe.

Meanwhile, Jane’s affections seem to be up for grabs, as FBI agent Alex Timmons and crime lord Lucien Lyons play tug-o-war with her heart. What’s a weredeer to do? Does she choose the eccentric, but sweet G-man or the hotter-than-blazes very bad boy? While the world may need love, sweet love, Jane needs to get her priorities straight and take down a twisted cult leader before he gives religion a bad name.

AN AMERICAN WEREDEER IN MICHIGAN by C.T. Phipps and Michael Suttkus is another snicker-guffaw-smirkfest mystery that flies by jack rabbit quick as Jane finds herself caught up, once again at ground zero for danger and intrigue as she races to halt the evil-doer in his tracks.

Do NOT misunderstand, this is an excellent mystery, but the quirkiness, the tongue-in-cheek one liners and skewed social consciousness still drives this tale, kind of like an almost out of control train heading into a dark tunnel with an oncoming light at the other end. Oh, wait, that pretty much describes Jane’s life, too…BUT, that said, the characters (and they are characters) are fabulous, the plot is deadly wicked and cleverly dark and the questionable romance(s), well, that’s on Jane to figure out.

Another fun, funny, funnier read from a talented author duo who truly seem to love their jobs!

I received a complimentary copy from C.T. Phipps!
