I admit that, when I purchased the first 'Stacy Justice' book, by Barbra Annino, it was something I considered a "guilty pleasure". I was looking for some light, entertaining fiction that would speak to that part of me which I don't often satisfy: paranormal infatuation. And I did thoroughly enjoy both "Opal Fire" and "Bloodstone".

"Tiger's Eye" brought something new to the table, and I am a bigger fan than ever.

There seems to be a lovely maturity to this third installment. The book is more cont

My Thoughts: These books are becoming better as they go along, but there are still too many things that bother me. For instance, it is said over and over that Amethyst, Illinois is a small town, and everyone knows everyone, but it's big enough for there to be at least a half-dozen fancy restaur

There are a handful of series that I have read that will always remain favorites simply because I know that when I read them I will get laugh out loud moments and just have a fun time while reading them, this is such a series.

I adore Stacy Justice, or maybe I just adore Barbra Annino and her incredible writing ability that never fails to put a smile on my face, keep me on the edge of my seat rooting for the Geraghty Girls (plus Thor) or keep me immersed in one heck of a great story line.

I ignored the author's note and did not read these stories in order. There are a few things that I had to figure out, but this could be read without the back story given in the first two books (which I have now read). In Tiger's Eye, Stacy is dealing with three separate mysteries. The first is continued from the end of book two, she needs to figure out who murdered her father. Second, after a slightly confusing time when her lovely pooch, Thor, is missing, she messes up a spell and Thor comes ...more

Tiger's Eye is the third installment of the Stacy Justice Mystery Series by Barbra Annino, and if you've enjoyed the first two (Opal Fire and Bloodstone), you're going to love this one as well.

In Tiger's Eye, Stacy Justice continues to come to terms with her witchy heritage as she confronts the possibility that her father's accidental death was actually murder. A white tiger continues to appear to Stacy, and while she struggles to understand its significance, she must face various other obstacle

I've had the pleasure to review the previous Stacy Justice tales. I would say Stacy Justice is like Stephanie Plum, but that's not really true. Stacy Justice is smart, competent and a witch. She's better! And Tiger's Eye is the best one yet. There's some awkwardness with Leo, but Stacy has really settled down with Chance. So her love life is less of a mess, but her family still needs fixing.

I discovered the Stacy Justice series last year and loved them so much I couldn't wait for this book. I am happy to say this book was worth the wait.

This book picks up where we left off. It felt so good to follow Stacy around . It felt like being home again with these characters.

Stacy will not let things go until figures out the mystery. I said it before I'll say it again Stacy has to be one of me favorite female characters. She's strong, stubborn, funny and kick ass! Chance, her lovable eccentr

Wow, this got a bit more serious than the previous books. Stacy is researching her father's death this time around and finds some unpleasant answers (view spoiler). The spell that brings the dogs was pretty interesting and I'm glad to see it looks like we are going to stay out of love triangle territory. I did miss Stacy's sister who brought a lot of entertainment to the previous book and was ...more

I really, really LOVE these Stacy Justice books. For me, they are right up there with some of the greats. I love the sense of humor, and the characters.

In this one, Stacy (amongst all her other adventures) sets out to find out what really happened to her dad. We find out that he was truly murdered and there were surprising plot twists along the way!

This book had me laughing, and getting very emotional, especially the part about Lolly and her love. (not going to ruin it for anyone here)

I like this series - they are fun quick reads with a lot of sass and humour. Tiger's Eye gets back to more of a murder mystery, as opposed to the quest-like plot of the previous book, Bloodstone and I appreciated that. It was a good murder mystery too, with the murderer right there without my having any idea until the ultimate reveal. A lot of fun to read and I'm looking forward to the next book.

So happy that Stacy finally seems to have her love life figured out and I'm ecstatic that she chose Chance! I like Leo, but Chance is just a better fit!

We also got to see more of Stacy's cuz, Cinnamon! The pregnancy test scene had me rolling! And, Chance's reaction was so stinking sweet!

But the ending of this book totally sealed the deal for me! Loved It!

I enjoyed this story. Stacey starts to investigate the death of her dad after she received a phone call that it wasnt an accident. Things do not go well though as bodies start turning up and the dead start to talk to her more forcefully. I enjoyed reading this story and found it a really good read that I didnt want to put down. Cannot wait to continue in the series and find out what happens next for Stacey. This is definitely a series I would recommend. xxx

*Beware of possible Spoilers*

Tiger’s Eye picks up where the previous book, Bloodstone, left off with Stacy getting the phone call that informed her that her father’s death wasn’t an accident, he was murdered. And, being the reporter she is, not to mention being the Seeker of Justice, she won’t give up until she finds out the truth or dies trying!

Meanwhile, in a moment of fear at not being able to find Thor, Stacy casts a spell that sends all lost dogs her way,

We got a little more Chance and Stacey,

which I loved of course because seriously...Chance could not be more perfect for her.

I pulled him through the threshold. 'That may be true, but not all your toos are tucked in your toolbox.'"

In this third sequel (and I do recommend reading the series in order,) I found Stacy Justice, a witch with a wonderful Great Dane, Thor, as her familiar messing up spells, growing as a witch, and fighting for justice once more.

Stacy is a witch who lives in the open. Most of the town of Amethyst, Illinois knows that Stacy's family is 'special.' Stacy earns her living as a journalist following in her father's footsteps.

This is the first book I've read in the Stacy Justice series & I have to say, I'm hooked! I believe that a book should be able to stand on it's own even if it's a part of a series. That no matter which book you chose to read, you will be able to enjoy & understand the story within. Thankfully Tiger's Eye is one of those books! Sure it's best to read books in the order they came out. You get no argument there, but if I had to read the other 2 first, I may have never bothered! As it is ...more

You know this is going to be a quirky novel right from the off, what with the doggy quotes at the beginning of most chapters (example: "I spilled spot remover on my dog. He's gone now." Steven Wright).

Stacey Justice is a quirky character too, matching the image portrayed on the front cover. She's a reporter on the paper that her father helped set up. There are three mysteries that she solves through this novel: 1) Who was behind the death of her father many years ago, 2) The mystery of the sad c

This is a fun read.

This book mixes cozy mystery with paranormal elements and does a good job at it.

I really liked Annino's writing style, which was fun, fast paced and funny.

Although this is the third book in the series and there's a warning in the front of the book that you should read the books in order, this book was perfectly readable as a stand alone. Of course there's mention of things that happened in the other books, but in no way did I feel confused or like I was missing vital informati

This series MUST be read in order... the prologue is the epilogue from the last book in the series.

I really adored this book :) The world changing plot twists continue in grand new ways! I did not realize until this book Cinnamon is not considered an actual Geraghty Girl and that kinda made me sad. Just because her father was Stacy's mothers brother she is seen as outside the fold. Though I guess that works out for her in that she is allowed to lead a semi-normal life.

Well it's summer time,it's hot ,and all Stacy wants to do is have a relaxing time swimming with Thor,and spend more time with her rekindled relationship with her love,Chance. Is that too much to ask for? When Stacy gets a call from a strange man telling her that her dad was murdered she knows relaxing time is not happening. She stayed away from her family's magic because she thought she was the reason her dad died in the car accident.... and now she has to find out who/ what really killed him. ...more

Recommends it for: Who indeed?
Stacy Justice returns for the third time and in this episode she is tracking down her father's killer. She is one of the most powerful witches of a generation, but thankfully she makes so many bad decisions that her powers are tempered and she'll never be able to become the despotic ruler of the world.

Most of her bad decisions centre around lying to her police chief ex-boyfriend and grandmother, but I have to say getting into a knock down drag out fight with the villain over a pile of dog poo..
I was glad to see that this third book in the series didn't go off the rails at the end like the second one, Bloodstone, did. This one has Stacy trying to find out the truth about her father's death. I like that Stacy's familiar, Thor, is a dog, not a cat and the author has done a good job at writing him as a character. I particularly enjoyed the dog-related quotes heading each chapter.

This was a very quick read, only took a few hours, but it was fun and I look forward to the next installment in

Und wieder eine geheimsniscolle Krimi-Geschichte von Stacy Justice, diesmal mit mehr Zauber als Mystischem, aber sehr gelungen.

Der Handlungsstrang ging flott voran. Es gab diesmal wenige Nebenhandlungen, sodass Eins dem Anderen folgte und alles sehr zielgerichtet dem Finale entgegen lief.
Wenn man Hunde mag, bekommt man hier zahlreiche Sahnehäubchen serviert, die einem gefallen dürften (mich sprach es leider nicht so an, aber das ist dann wohl eher Geschmackssache).

Started well, a multitude of instantly likeable characters with good rapport and funny dialogue. The dog is fabulous...protective, loyal and irreverent. Disappointed by the astoundingly brusque and unsatisfying denouement, everything tied up in a single chapter but felt like a desperate bid to wrap the book up quickly without any thought to the reader's engagement or pleasure in the process.

Left me with a sense of annoyance towards the end but probably still a 2.5 star read but with the potenti

Another wonderful Stacy Justice mystery. Since it had been a while between reading the previous book and this one, I had a few moments of reader confusion trying to get myself back into the world of Stacy Justice, but once I was back it was a heck of a ride! I loved that this story focused on what happened to Stacy's father, almost allowing Stacy a little bit more breathing room. Opening herself up more for what she will need to do to get her mother back. I also loved all the dogs in this book, ...more

Stacy Justice is back with her wit, her screw ups and her family of witches in this story about who killed her father. Stacy and Thor are swimming in the local lake when she is pulled under by a dead man who wants the truth known. In her search for the truth, she unwittingly casts a spell that goes wrong, uncovers her father's partner's secrets and learns the truth about herself and her family. Fast paced witty and a fun read. You can't help but like the characters in this book.
Book #3 in Stacy Justice Mysteries.

Third book in and I still really Stacy Justice and her family. Third book is usually the deal breaker for me, but Ms. Annino has Stacy and her family dialed in, (and it feels like she knows exactly where she wants to go with these characters and story.) It's enjoyable to read a story that you know id going to end fairly safe, with all the players present and accounted for. This book was no different.

Solid three stars.

“The timer dinged a few minutes later and Cinnamon sucked in her breath.

"You want me to check?" I asked.

"I'll do it."

I stood up and followed her into the bathroom.

Cinnamon gasped and said,"They're both positive!"

"What?" I grabbed the sticks from her hand and read them. I glared at her.

She chuckled. "You should have seen your face.”
