Review: The Lady in Pink by J.A. Kazimer

Publication Date: 8/18/2015

Series: Deadly Ever After #2
Rating: 4 Stars

Official Blurb:

Coming home to find a dead body in your living room isn’t the best way to end a long day’s work, especially when that work is as New Never City’s premier blue-haired PI. It’s even worse when the corpse is your intern, electrocuted to death, and you’re the one with enough voltage flowing through your veins to power Fairyland.

Blue Reynolds has nabbed his fair share of criminals—with and without the help of his alluring half-fairy partner Isabella Davis—but this one is proving to be more slippery than most. As Blue and Izzy investigate who might have wanted a lowly intern dead—and why—they begin to uncover a diabolical plan that could put both of their lives in danger…and unearth shocking secrets that stretch deep into Blue’s shadowy family history.

The Lady in Pink is a modern day twist the fairy tales we loved as kids. Kazimer has re-created an adult themed fairy tale full of laughter, suspense, and passion.  Having not read the first book in this series, I didn’t feel as if I had missed too much of the backstory to understand the characters and the plot.  The Lady in Pink is a cross between fairy tale and urban fantasy and the combination works. Blue’s thoughts and opinions about the crispy critter he finds in his apartment nearly made me pee my pants with laughter. His humor lightens the dark situations he and his partner Izzy face. His self-destruction is evident as the series continues and he often is the obstacle in the way of his dreams and desires. Izzy is an easy character to like. I just have to laugh at the fact she’s the former tooth fairy. Who knew the tooth fairy was so feisty?   Kazimer has written a whimsical tale filled with humor and sass.  If you are looking for something just a little bit different from your normal paranormal or urban fantasy reads, I recommend that you give this series a try if only for the laughter that will ensue
