Review: Lie Down With Dogs by Hailey Edwards

Reviewed by Jen

Dammit. Love triangles mess with my emotions. I’ve never been a fan of Shaw, but now I just don’t know how I feel. As the story begins, Thierry has been separated from her new husband, Rook, and she is back home, at least for the next year until she must return to Faerie to be crowned Queen. So she decides to go out on one last vacation with her best friend to Florida. Shaw tags along to work on a case nearby. And of course, she has her two fae guards along with her giant shape shifting cat, Diode.

It’s not all sun and surf. Thierry encounters one obstacle after another from some adversarial selkies to a mysterious phone stalker and an enigmatic fae who targeted her friend with a supernatural roofie. On one hand, Thierry just wants to relax with her best gal pal, but she can’t ignore the wrongs she encounters either. She is still a marshal at heart.

There’s a whole lot of betrayal and twists happening here. I won’t spoil them, but I just don’t feel really good about anyone in Thierry’s life right now, save her kitsune friend. This author has a way of putting her heroine’s through a whole lot of backstabbing and Thierry takes one hit after another.

And when all is said and done, a couple of whoppers have been unveiled and still she has to make a huge decision about not only her future, but the future of two worlds.

I liked this book and I am very invested, not only in theory, but what will happen with the overall story arc. I just don’t feel like there has been justice for the wrongs done to this heroine. Especially since people I kind of liked keep revealing themselves to be on trustworthy. Hopefully I will get the resolution I need in the last installment. Jumping in right away.
