This review is from: Rosemary and Rue (Mass Market Paperback)
October (Toby) Daye is a half-fae private investigator in San Francisco – at least until an enemy turns her into a carp and leaves her swimming in a fish pond for 14 years. By the time she gets out her wholly human husband and (by now teenage) daughter don't want to know her and with her life in ruins she takes a normal job and tries to leave the magic world behind. Tries. Unfortunately when an old friend, Countess Evening Winterrose, is murdered she's forced into finding the killer or suffering the fatal consequences of Winterrose's dying curse which binds her to the task.
The investigation leads Toby into finding out who her friends really are – unfortunately that also means finding that friends an enemies alike are not all what they seem.
I enjoyed this. It's urban fantasy crossed with noir detective fiction. Toby has an engaging voice and the whodunnit angle keeps you guessing.
