Review: Riley Shaughnessy has lived a tough life, but she’s now enjoying her life as a country veterinarian. When she’s out in the woods, she sees a man shot and when she goes to him see is immediately attracted to him. Before she can get help, he disappears. In the meantime, her assistant is missing and found dead with wounds matching those found on other women killed by the same person. Even though Riley’s horoscope warns her of danger, she can’t help but put herself in harm’s way…
CAPRICORN CRAVINGS is a mystery, with a slight astrological twist and a romantic sub-plot. The author created believable and dynamic characters who stay consistent throughout the story. I liked Riley a lot as she’s someone who overcame a horrific past and cares deeply about her friends. Her perseverance in tracking down a murderer is sometimes foolhardy, but also admirable. The romance wasn’t over the top, which was nice. The story comes together well in the end and I enjoyed the mystery, suspense, and romance. CAPRICORN CRAVINGS is a good story and will keep your attention until the suspenseful ending!
