Escape with Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective

Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective
By: Christine Amsden

The Goodreads Blurb: Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.
Cassie Scot is a women of strength and power. She is confident with herself and very independent. While at times I found her to be a little difficult to get along with, I respected her for all she went through and who she was. She is a powerhouse and a brave person to tough out the hard situations.
The mystery was very well-done (I didn't guess right at all till the end) and the book keeps you on your toes. It had solid friendships and intrigue. It was well written and created a unique world. I think the series has a lot of potential. It lived up to it in the first book. 
Without giving spoilers there was one familial relationship that I felt to be unrealistic, stupid, and detracting. Maybe its setting up for the next book, but it diminished my enjoyment of this one. And I also found the romance poorly done in terms of balance. So while this book has a lot of highlights and is well worth the read, I took a star for these two annoyances that detracted from the overall positive aspects of the book.

Check out Cassie Scot on Goodreads and Amazon!
