Review: Cat of a Different Color

Cat of a Different Color: Halle Pumas, Book 3Title: Cat of a Different Color
Author: Dana Marie Bell
Page Count: 84 pages (ebook)
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: paranormal romance
Copy for review was purchased by me

40 words or less: Adrian Giordano didn't think he'd ever want to settle down, especially when his two best friends seemed to be wallowing in mated, marital bliss.  When he meets Sheridan Montgomery, a woman/Puma on the run from her psycho ex, he starts to rethink that position (and a whole bunch of others...)

The Halle Pumas/Shifters series is like a big bag of gummy bears for me.  I can sit around all day just eating them and they never get boring, because every one is a different flavor!

This story marks the point in the series where we really start to get some development about the world and society of the Pumas.  When an outside threat in the form of Sherri's crazy ex-boyfriend appears on the scene, the entire community has to band together to not only defend against the threat, but to finally welcome Sherri as a member of the Pride.  While the beginning, middle and end of the story unfold pretty much the way you'd expect, sometimes it's nice to read a story that's fun and sweet.

One of the things I love the most about this author's books is that the characters don't wallow in their issues and insecurities.  Instead, they deal with them and move on to being happy and productive, which is a nice change from all the drama and angst that can take over a story sometimes.  The hero and heroine are adorable together (always a plus) and some of the ancillary characters get a lot of good development which indicates very good things for the next few books.  We're introduced to the friendly neighborhood pack of wolf shifters, too, and their Alpha, who's the hero of the next book, along with Belle (Belinda) the much-maligned from former installments.

If you haven't started this series yet, then I highly recommend buying all of the books at once (and at super reasonable prices that's no hardship) and settling in to read them in order.  Once you start you won't want to stop!

Overall Grade: A
