However, things are about to get even more complicated after she finds out that she may have special abilities that bound her to the very unstable Collin McBain.  After Collin had been tortured and tested like a lab rat, he is unable to control his wolf side and it’s up to Payton to calm him down.  The sister’s are still not safe and they continue to learn how to control their powers while trying to stay one step ahead of the secret group trying to destroy them.

Wyatt Farraday has his hands full trying to keep the three sisters safe, but it’s even harder when he finds that he is drawn to Willow and together they discover that their abilities are heightened-a discovery that Willow isn’t so happy about, and she is so adamant that she can take care of herself.

The Winters Sisters Series are filled with intrigue, murder, suspense and romance.  The fast paced action leaves the reader on the edge of their seat, turning pages fast, and wondering what happens next. The characters are developed and their personalities help bring them alive.  I have come to love reading Joanne Jaytanie’s books and look forward to reading more of her writing.

Miss Demeanor Suspense Series: P.I. I Love You, Bare, Choreographed Crime, Golden Ribbons

 Miss Demeanor Suspense Series

Four female cops are tired of not being promoted and the lack of excitement that comes from being an officer in a small town.  After they meet online in a group called “Lady Cops” they decide to start a private investigation business called “Miss Demeanor Private Detective Agency” in Seattle.  In this series we follow four strong women as they fight drug rings, murderers, kidnappers and sex rings in the Emerald City.

P.I. I Love You by Joanne Jaytanie

River Nightingale just watched another promotion pass her up.  She’s closed more cases than anybody in her town, only to watch a man with half the experience who works the least amount of anyone take the job.  Enough is enough and when the possibility of joining her new friends as a private investigator in Seattle becomes a reality she calls her uncle, pulls a few strings, and makes the move to The City of Flowers.  With their new business up and running a new client comes in asking for help with finding who murdered his parents and tracking down a long lost half sister that had been secretly adopted.  Unfortunately for River, tracking down the murderer means working with bossy and prideful Homicide Detective, Gage Hamlin and reopening his case.  He hates nosy private investigators and she hates smug arrogant policeman that look down their noses at woman cops.  They need to put their differences aside and work together to solve the cases, because it seems like someone else is on their heels ready to do whatever it takes, even kill a cop, in order to hide the truth.  This is an amazing story, the suspense dripped from each page and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.  This is the first time I’ve read a book from Joanne Jaytanie, and I loved it!

BARE by Angela Ford

Shay Brooks has found that she’s hit that invisible glass ceiling, especially because she’s a female cop in a small town and not taken seriously by her partners.  Agreeing to start up the “Miss Demeanor Private Detective Agency” with her friends in Seattle, she is excited to kiss her town good bye.  Her first case has her taking an undercover job as a waitress in a gentleman’s club, where she’s trying to “save” the client’s daughter from the club’s owner.  Once inside BARE, Shay finds out not everyone is who they say they are.  I enjoyed Shay’s story and was impressed with the strong characters that were portrayed in a short amount of time.  Angela did a great job setting the scene and creating a plot that was suspenseful from the beginning.

Choreographed Crime by Jackie Marilla

When Maile Kuhiwinui decided to leave Hawaii, she didn’t realize how homesick she would be.  It seemed like a great idea at the time, join a group of female officers, and become a private investigator in Seattle, leaving behind the small town cop mentality in her review mirror.  However, she feels like she’s not being productive as she sits back and watches the other women close their cases.  Trying to get rid of her homesickness by comforting herself with food from back home, Maile meets Kalama Haleamau and realizes that Seattle might not be so bad.  However, when a murder case is brought to Maile, she finds that Kalama is right in the middle of it and he might just be a suspect.  This was not my favorite story in the book.  Maile seemed very weak and didn’t seem have to have the mentality of a cop.  She cried a lot and it frustrated me, I was happy to see this story over.  I feel like Maile is the weak link in the series.

Golden Ribbons by Lauren Marie

Cassie Holmes is spunky and tough, she doesn’t take no for an answer and she isn’t scared to tell a complete stranger- who she lovingly refers to as “Sasquatch”- to take a hike.  As tough as she is, she has a soft spot for the client who has taken what money she has to secure the aid of the private investigator.  The client’s daughter, Cami, is a fourteen year old girl who ran away and has found herself victim of a child prostitution ring, and it’s up to Cassie and Sasquatch, aka Jack Donovan to help Cami and the other girls find safety.  I like Cassie, she was my favorite character, and she is sassy and has a no-nonsense personality.  She knows what has to be done and doesn’t stop to question it.  I enjoyed Lauren Marie’s writing and will be reading more of her books in the future.

I did love this series, although I could have been happier without reading Maile’s story.  The women in this story must step aside and learn to let a man help them even after they have played hardball with the men back in their small towns.  This is about taking a big jump and changing your life when you find yourself in a rut. I will read more from Joanne Jaytanie, Angela Ford, and Lauren Marie.
