Publisher's Summary

Grayce Walters, animal acupuncturist, harbors a secret. She hides her intuitive gifts from the world until she becomes embroiled in arson on Seattle's waterfront. As a key crime witness, Grayce must convince the attractive, logical, by-the-numbers fire investigator, Ewan Davis, that the fire she witnessed is part of a larger criminal conspiracy. Grayce embarks upon a mission to gather proof of the dangerous threat. She enlists the help of her cross-dressing best friend, her street-wise assistant, and Davis' poodle, to conduct her own investigation. As her feelings for Davis shift between white hot passion and cold fear, Grayce must risk exposing her secrets to safe Davis' life. Davis must accept things, he can neither see, nor understand to solve the mystery and finally find the love he has stopped believing in. With nudges from the protective poodle, Grayce and Davis confront shocking betrayal and international crime on the rain soaked streets of Seattle.

Excellent story

Note received this audible book for free! With that stated, OMG I really loved the story and that the main character is a Veterinarian, and her counter character is a Fireman. I really do Not enjoy Romance but in this story it was essential.
Will continue to follow this author!

4/5 Stars Romantic Suspense w Fun Characters

Summary: Grayce Walters, paranormal vet, gets a vision from Mitzi that Ewan Davis is in danger. He, of course, is a hot fire investigator who's looking into a suspicious fire down at the wharf.

Additional Comments:
- Writing quality is very strong overall.
- The mystery itself is fairly straightforward. It's not a police procedural or anything so the main character's investigation is confined more to generic snooping. She does do some pretty stupid things overall, but it's all because she loves her man ... I guess we can at least understand the why of it.
- The repeated use of strong language got tedious for me. (But I will say that the narrator did a nice job with the performance.)
- The touch of paranormal in here was well done. I think more could have been done with the connection to Grayce's sister, but the dreams/visions were decently described.
- Twist at the end kind of cheapened all the character(s) did to investigate up to that point.
- The idea of doing acupuncture on pets is intriguing. I know zip about acupuncture in general, but the descriptions sounded reasonable.
- Fun side characters - Davis's aunt and Grayce's friend James are outlandish in their own ways
- Content warnings: very strong language, adult content goes beyond the "mild" setting (I'd probably categorize it as medium level in at least 1 scene)

Conclusion: Good romantic suspense/ mystery story if you can handle the descriptions of sex and the repeated strong language.
