Detective Andrea Haney is tracking down the manufacturers of a new drug, fairy dust, that is dangerously toxic and killing an alarming number of users. After three months of difficult investigations she’s disgusted to learn that her superiors have brought her former partner and lover, Darren O’Connel, in to help with the case. The drug has a magical component that makes it very difficult to preserve, and Darren’s magical abilities lend themselves to the task. They had parted five years earlier under painful circumstances, and while he seems eager to get back in her good graces, she’s not sure she can trust him.
There is an almost satirical feeling to this book, though I don’t think it was intended to be so. The heroine is special but unappreciated, while the hero is unabashedly perfect. She’s tough, strong, independent, and can make it on her own. He’s rich, famous, handsome, and utterly devoted to her.
That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the story. While not deep, the story is fun. It takes a unique look at magic as it might be used in day to day life. I happily recommend this story and hope to see more from Cari in the future.
