When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.
Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it’s love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily’s first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.
Lily’s new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader.
Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?
second chance twists
Smooshie is an amazing pitty who saves Lily Mason from getting run over as they first meet. As Lily puts it, she’s seems to have adopted her. It looks like they might just be saving each other. Lily had a rough road before arriving in Moonshine . Having buried her parents and brother, she wanted to meet her uncle, believed by non-shifters to be her cousin. She may have found a lot more than a pitty companion- if she can stay alive and out of trouble long enough to explore and enjoy it.
This book was really a good read. I am going to read more of Renee George’s book’s.
It keeps you wondering about who the killer is.
