Ari is the replacement team's Bigfoot liaison. Armed with everything she's learned from detective shows, she's ready to find the murderer. The downside is the job comes

This was so much fun. I have already waited too long to properly review, but here is the gist of it:

Both the main characters are incredibly interesting and three-dimensional. Ben, a queer Native who loves his life orderly and clean, who thinks long before he speaks. Ari, the sweets-loving Bigfoot who tells it like it is. And now they're cop buddies after the previous "Ecology Board" team was murdered. It's hilarious, touching, and entertaining from start to finish.

Bonus points, Ben is a chemist.

Ben is the new member of the Spokane Ecology Board, after his predecessor was murdered. Of course, it isn’t generally known what the full nature of the job entails – policing and investigating problems with the supernatural community of Spokane. A community Ben never knew about before – and certainly isn’t a part of.

It comes with a partner – Ari. A Bigfoot. She’s hoping this job will earn her some respect from the Bigfoot colony that has made her an outcast – she doesn’t have a great deal of exp

We at The Review Hart would like to disclose that we received this book for free in return for an honest review

The author has given a lot of thought to the character development, parti

I really enjoyed this book. It's a paranormal story, a cop buddy story, and a mystery story all rolled into one but somehow it's also more than any of these. The author has taken the legend of Bigfoot (which I would never have guessed could be interesting) and created a culture that that I found intriguing and convincing. It read to me like good science fiction where we see ourselves through the eyes (and in this case nose) of an alien, even though in this case it's a terrestr

I really liked this book. Blake really brought the Bigfoot and the magical community of Spokane to life. My only complaint was it was a little slow moving in places. I'd definitely check out the further adventures of unlikely partners Ari & Ben. ...more
