Katherine Douglass moves to Montana to start a retreat for cancer patients/survivors in honor of her father, and her need to help those who not only suffered from the
devastating illness, but to also help their family members heal who lived
through their loved one’s pain.
Soon after arriving at her new digs, Katherine or a.k.a. Kat, goes on a quest to find what’s she’s been craving. Mint-pistachio ice cream. It’s during this outing in a rough and tumble bar, which is the only place in town that carries her particular vice
“ice cream,” that Kat runs into one of her soon-to-be, were-shifter, bond-mates.
The author does a good job of creating an interesting world surrounding the trio of men (were-shifter bond-mates) and how they come into Katherine’s world, as well as how were-shifters came into existence. This story has a back story, mystery, action, hot scenes, humor, and a well rounded cast of characters.
Setting aside my reader hat and placing my reviewer hat on, there are a few times the conversations are a bit rough around the edges, with too much in the way of “telling” the readers instead of showing the readers. Also, as I read, I couldn’t help but notice repeated phrases, that I believe was done by the author in an attempt to create a rhythm, however this led into repeated words such as “now, just, and baby.” Over time, the repetition begins to be a bit distracting.
Placing my reader hat back on, Their Unexpected Mate is the first book I’ve read by this author, and I doubt it will be the last. Overall, I enjoyed reading Ms. James work, and can
say without reservation in the world of paranormal ménage, it should be a recommended read.
