Review: Guarded by Mary Behre

She’s given up on finding love… Veterinarian Shelley Morgan has always preferred animals to humans, and not simply because she can communicate with them psychically. Unlike most people she’s known, animals have never broken her heart. But after six months in her new town, some of her favorite four-legged companions begin disappearing from the local zoo. Determined to track down the animals and their thief, the telepathic vet decides to investigate, unknowingly delving into a deadly mystery… He’s ready to make her heart go wild… Although his bear-like physique has been an advantage in the Tidewater Police Department, Dev Jones’s size often intimidates people. Only Shelley has seen past his massive build to the intelligent man inside, but that was years ago. So when she contacts him requesting his help to solve a series of animal kidnappings, he’s eager to reconnect with her. But the thefts escalate to murder and all the evidence points to Shelley as the killer, and Dev faces a devastating choice: forsake his career or risk losing the woman he’s grown to love…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series is a perfect mix of paranormal, suspense and romance along with the reuniting of 3 sisters that were separated when they were young and in foster care.

Jules, who was in the first book, can see and talk to dead people, Shelley, who is the lead in this book, is a vet and able to communicate with animals and Hannah, we haven’t been told yet of what she can do.

As with the first book the heroine manages to get herself in the middle of a murder mystery that also involved animals from a zoo going missing. The hero in this one is Dev Jones who is a detective with the Tidewater Police Department who played a large secondary role in the first book. We as the readers knew he had some connection with Shelley from the past and had figured out she was the one of the sisters Jules had been looking for years. Dev is a large burley man but he has such a sweet disposition you couldn’t help but fall in love with him the moment you met him.

Even though the suspense parts of the books are somewhat dark the majority of the books are lighthearted and humorous. Shelley’s insecurities about everyone in her life either dying or leaving her was a bit over done at times but overall I really liked the story and loved her and Dev together.

Still don’t know much at all about the 3rd sister but I’m looking forward to meeting her in the next book and for all 3 of the sisters to be finally reunited.
