You can call Sophie Lawson the lucky one if you think it working with the vampires, werewolves, and fairies pretty cool. For the most part, working at the Underworld Detection Agency pays her rent – but Sophie sometimes wonders if a dragon breathing down her neck is better than having a normal boss who demands her to make his coffee. Who’s to say… Sophie gets the chance to be “normal” when detective Parker Hayes seeks input on a series of grisly happenings above ground that point at the supernatural. Nothing is what it seems, and Sophie must figure out who is undead, dead, and just plain crazy before she gets permanently fired from living.

UNDER WRAPS is a pretty fun read that tickled my funny bone and kept me on my toes, but I didn’t find that special something that takes it from okay to AWESOME. Not enough funny? Too much drooling over sexy men and not getting anywhere with them? I will have to give Hannah Jayne props for keeping me in suspense on the whodunit portion – she never gave too much to make any definite conclusions! The characters are sparkly and they kept the story from getting stale, especially Sophie’s shopaholic vampire roommate. UNDER WRAPS is pretty easy-going read, similar to a warm apple cider drink on a crisp fall day, and I think I will wait until Book 2 to see if this will be a series to look out for!
