    Carlos Panterra is looking for a mate, a woman who will love and care for the young orphans he's recently taken under his wing (or paw, as the case may be). When the shape shifter spies the beautiful Caitlyn, it's like sunshine amidst the darkness. At last, he's found the perfect woman, except... Caitlyn Whelan is mortal. Worse, her father is the head of a CIA agency bent on hunting the undead. Still, Caitlyn knows that Carlos is the man for her, shape shifter or not. So she jumps at the chance when her sister offers her a job to work with him....

    Overall

    Eat, Prey, Love ends better than it begins. The primary issue is that the heroine comes across as a bit juvenile, whining a lot over feeling abandoned by her sister, always crying, "Why?" If she were really feeling abandoned, would the girls just pick up where they left of as children, closer than ever? There have to be more subtle and less petulant ways to communicate that inner conflict. The narrator's "little girl" voice may contribute to that characterization as well. The heroine also seems to find it difficult to put 2 and 2 together, having to be told that her father kept her letters from her sister when there is more than enough clues to give her that information. My third complaint is that there is no build up from lust to love--just an off-hand comment that love is worth fighting for, when I didn't believe we'd gotten that far yet.

    Having said that, once both characters realize that they love each other and the real object to them getting together is revealed, the book gets better. The heroine shows a lot more maturity and intelligence in the second half of the book, and the plot becomes more intricate and entertaining.

    Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy.

    Joie says: "Terrible Summary"
    "Not to my taste"
    Overall

    I am generally a fan of both Megan Hart and the narrator Savannah Richards; however, I found the paranormal aspect of this particular story rather creepy and morbid. Additionally, though I liked the main character for the most part, I found myself frustrated by her choice of men, both of whom were too petulant to be compelling.
