Finally! I have been waiting for more Benedict and Arjenie since they first got together. And while I would have loved to get a full length book for them, this novella does the job quite nicely. These two are such a great pair. I love the way they compliment each other, they way they understand one another, and just… fit.
Here Benedict is accompanying his mate back home to visit her family for the holidays. It’s sweet to see this strong, stoic man, nervous to meet the people who matter to her. I really felt connected to him as he tried to make a good impression and to please the woman he loves so much.
Of course, nothing can go easy. As soon as they arrive, things go awry. Benedict is forced into his wolf. There is a strange force operating on Arjenie’s family land. And someone –or something– has gutted a man. Benedict and Arjenie team up with her Wiccan family and the local officials to get to the bottom of things.
The mystery is pretty good, an interesting mix of different mythologies. But where the story really shines is with the main characters. I simply love Benedict and Arjenie. They are so great together. The secondary characters are engaging too. Arjenie’s family is eclectic and fun, and I hope we get to see more of them in the future.
This story isn’t pivotal to the series, but fans won’t want to skip it.
