Cover Art: The top half shows a cop and a doctor dressed in a white coat with a stethoscope around his neck. The bottom half has a young child playing with a stethoscope and an assortment of animals. The two halves are separated by yellow banners with the books title in black bold print representing crime scene tape and the author’s name appears across the bottom. Although it is rather a hotchpotch of cut and paste it does represent the story accurately apart from the child. The Alpha’s daughter is eight years old yet the child on the cover is a toddler.
Synopsis: Sets the scene without giving too much of the plot away.
Plot: Gunnar the Alpha detective is a grieving widower raising his eight-year-old daughter, Olivia, singlehandedly after the death of his omega. When Olivia’s kitten is sick they go to the vet which is where he meets Liam, an omega who has moved across the country to escape from his stalker ex. Gunnar is hunting an omega killer and thinks Liam may be in danger.
Main Characters: Gunnar Justice, detective, an Alpha widower grieving for his omega, Adam, who died a year previously, raising his eight-year-old daughter singlehandedly.
Liam Chandler, an omega, is a vet who looks after Gunnar’s daughter Olivia’s kitten when it falls ill. He has moved across the country to escape from his stalker ex and is terrified of being found.
Secondary Characters: Olivia, Gunnar’s daughter, a feisty eight-year-old, owner of Puff, the kitten, who brings Gunnar and Liam together.
Damon, Liam’s stalker ex, who although not appearing, is lurking in the background throughout the story.
Flow/Continuity: The story flows seamlessly from scene to scene. No continuity issues were found.
Conflict & Climax: Gunnar is hunting an omega killer while Liam has moved across country to escape his stalker ex. Is there a connection between the two or is this a red herring? Can Gunnar get over his grief to make a go of it with Liam? Will Liam’s ex, Damon, find him even though Liam is fairly certain he has covered his tracks.
Writing Style: Written in the third person, the author has an easy flowing style.
Editing/Formatting: This review is based on an ARC and as such the formatting was not finalised. This copy was very tidy. A few minor errors but nothing to pull you out of the story
Price: This is a full length novel and is around the average price for books of this length.
Conclusion: A gripping murder mystery, full of suspense which keeps you hanging right until the very end. I give this a 9.5* out of a possible 10

Gunnar pulled the car into an empty parking space two cars back from the bus stop and unlocked the doors. “Get out on the curb and cross with me,” he said.
Normally, Olivia would’ve grumbled about being told the rules again, but this time she just nodded, her lips tight and her face pale. “He sneezed,” she said.
Gunnar nodded. If he was sneezing, at least that meant he was alive.
Gunnar took the carrier with one hand and Olivia’s hand with his other as they crossed the street. It was 8:05, and a young guy, with blond hair and glasses bent down on the ground between the inside door and a partially opened gate as he picked up a white metal box with a red medical symbol on the side.
“Excuse me, sir, are you the vet?” Olivia asked, slipping inside the gap where the gate was partially opened. Gunnar grabbed OlivIa’s shoulder to keep her from bowling the guy over as the man looked up. His nose twitched, and his eyes widened as his gaze rested on Gunnar.
Gunnar smelled it too, the subtle sweetness of an omega mingling with his own alpha musk. Adam had been cinnamon chocolate. This man was more cream and mint, with a hint of… caramel? It was attractive, and Gunnar ruthlessly crushed the sudden desire to get closer and identify that third, underlying scent.
Gunnar didn’t want to be attracted to another omega. Adam had only been dead for a year. This slight stirring of interest – and it was barely interest – felt like a betrayal.
Olivia said, “Puff is very sick.”
“Puff?” The doctor stood. Getting a better look at his face, Gunnar estimated his age upward. Late twenties, not mid, closer to Gunnar’s own age. Worse, the man was handsome, in a boyish way, his blue eyes bright and magnified a bit too large behind the lenses of his glasses as he ran a hand through his wavy blond hair. He wore a stethoscope around his neck, and thankfully his tone was warm and businesslike as he said, “I’m Dr. Chandler,” looking only at Olivia.
“We adopted Puff from the shelter on Sunday,” Gunnar explained, holding out the carrier over his daughter’s head so that the doctor could see.
Dr. Chandler looked into the carrier, and his lips tightened as the smile faded from his face. He held out his hand. “Come with me.” He opened the inside door. “Carolyn, my tech, is running late, but if you two don’t mind letting me take him into the back, Pam will get your paperwork started while I take a look at Puff.”
“Whatever you have to do for him, do it,” Gunnar said.
