Blurb
Devon Murphy has never believed that there were fairies at the bottom of the garden, but when he’s in an accident on his way to his grandmother’s house and comes face to face with the biggest, baddest wolf he’s ever seen, he’s forced to reconsider.
When his grandmother asks him to look into a string of suspicious accidents, he finds a much bigger mystery to unravel. From his childhood best friend to the too-attractive Deputy Wade Hunter, everyone in Rowan Harbor seems to have something to hide. Devon has to get to the bottom of it all before the accidents turn deadly.

I really enjoyed this story, I will admit it was choppy in certain places for me and I had to go back and re-read a few previous paragraphs to figure out what was going on but overall I really enjoyed it. Besides the slow building of the romance between Devon and Wade there is a mystery-like world building going on. 
Devon is called back to a town that he has been away from for almost ten years but everyone is treating him like he has never left. Strange things start happening even before he gets into town and he's determined to get to the bottom of it before he decides if he is leaving again or staying for good this time. 
I'm looking forward to book two, it's Jesse's book and he was a great secondary character in this book. 

Author Bio
Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.
If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.
