This was better than it had any right to be. Could have been even better if the romantic background story between the two main characters, Miranda and Bishop, had not distracted from what really mattered, namely the serial killer mystery and the application of psychic powers to solve it.

Unfortunately Kay Hooper jumped the shark
In this one. I have loved the SCU books and thought the Haven books were fairly good but these Bishop Files books were odd to begin with and in this last one?
SPOILER: Aliens? Really? And a talking cat for frosting. Starting a search for a new book series now.

"You're a lot like this land, Maggie," he said softly. "You give no quarter."

We begin our story with Maggie as she is hired on Rafe's family horse farm after impressing him with her horse training skills. Horses and their upkeep and breeding take up a lot of time in this book. Although I am not an expert, I had relatives that raised horses for competition (barrel and dresage), I am familiar with some horse culture. For the short length, the book was able to remain true to life of horses and the people who love and raise them. Anyway, I enjoyed this book just fine. I may even watch out for the rest of the series (featuring different authors). This is my second Kay Hooper and I think her writing works well for me.

As I mentioned in an update, my spouse found this in a Little Free Library for me. I often read and return the books I find, but I plan to keep this book for the lovely cover (illustrated by Joe DeVito).

content note: there's some offensive Native American representation and stereotypes.

This . . . was something! Kind of a Mad Max: Fury Road vibe, but with wizards and time travel? There are some interesting ideas here but maybe too many for one book? and like poor execution? The writing wasn't bad - actually, it was quite good (minus all the times the bad guy referred to his conquests as bitches, as in property). There are two slow-burn romances in the book and I wish we had more time developing both of those instead of all the magical realm history. Ahh well.
