Part of Jane True series by Nicole Peeler. Yet we went through the motions anyway. For all of our sins, no one could say that the True family wasn’t good at going through the motions.

Part of Jane True series by Nicole Peeler. After breakfast, I doled out my father’s copious pills and set them next to his orange juice. He flashed me his charming smile, which was the only thing left unchanged after the ravages to his health and his heart. Thank you, Jane, he said. And I knew he meant it, despite the fact that I’d set his pills down next to his orange juice every single morning for the past twelve years.

During her nightly swim in the ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to some startling revelations about Rockabill - and about her own dark heritage.

Narrated by Kate Reinders. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her herita.

I read the summary for this book and thought it would be a good read for my 13-year old daughter. Luckily I decided to read it first because in the first chapter you have Lesbian shop owners, one of which used to be a porn star and who buys the lead character sex toys and other adult novelties for her "dirty drawer." They also use strong profanity. After one chapter I am returning the book at my own expense.

When faced with the prospect of reading a new author I usually feel equal parts excitement and trepidation as I embark on a journey that I have no clue as to how it will end. Will I like them? Will they be as good as all those reviews said they were? Having come across a few doozies lately - I feel I might be a bit more skittish than usual. Yet, I'm now on a role. The last two new authors have been splendid!

Hello, Nicole Peeler!
Ms. Peeler takes us to the world of Jane True. Jane, while your typical urban fantasy, female character - thrust into a world that she had no idea existed, is a little more than the usual unsuspecting supernatural. Her character is a bit neurotic, a lot of funny, incredibly smart and just all around a very likable heroine.

Jane True lives in a tiny little town in New England, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Jane is also the town pariah. At the ripe old age of 26, Jane has resigned herself to the life of a hermit. Destined to care for her father and amuse her self with her "naughty" drawer. Which the author hints that she might only open it to look - not to play. Poor Jane. Jane's hermitage gets thrown off track though, with a dead body and a vampire named Ryu.

Part murder mystery, part paranormal romance - Tempest Rising is a fun, enjoyable and refreshing read, stuffed full of witty remarks, hot vampire love and intense supernatural battles. Jane's inner turmoil and almost schizophrenic mental battle between her libido and common sense was hilarious and scarily relatable. Definitely a must-add to your TBR list if you are fan of the fanged.

Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse series will love this book. And what a unique cover! The talented and inspiring artist is Sharon Tancredi. Her illustration gives the book a very unique look that I think people will either go "huh" or jump up and down and clap - saying "I want one, I want one."

Whoever is responsible for this manga-like cover illustration took a huge risk. Is it worth alienating potential buyers in order to stand out? Considering the amount of urban fantasy published every month, the answer might be yes. I hope that if this series doesn't do as well as expected, the covers will get an overhaul. This new series is too good to miss out on.

Like mother, like daughter.
When Jane's mother appeared naked on the town square in the middle of a storm, the people of Rockabill knew it wouldn't end well. Seducing a sought after bachelor, living in sin and bearing a daughter, who looks just like her, did nothing to sooth the wagging tongues. As suddenly as she had come, Jane's mother vanished again.
Since then Jane's life hasn't been easy. She's a social outcast. While she likes her job in the bookstore, but it doesn't pay much. Her father is in need of care. Jane's best friend and lover drowned trying to save her from the wild waters of the ocean and she had a mental breakdown. If she had told him her secret, her friend would still be alive. Because for Jane, the North Atlantic is a second home and she feels completely safe in its' wild waves.
Everything changes when Jane pulls a second body from the ocean. The detective knocking on her door is of the supernatural kind and Jane falls head over heels into a world full of magic and dangerous rivalries. Will she sink or swim?

Oh man, deciding what I enjoyed most about this book is not an easy task. Characters or setting? Setting or characters? Debut author Nicole Peeler does an excellent job on both.
I haven't seen any urban fantasies located at the North Atlantic coast yet and Peeler perfectly captures the small town atmosphere and mentality. Rockabill's inhabitants try so hard to change it into a profitable tourist trap it's hilarious and while there are many small minded people wandering around, there's also much to like about this town. I wouldn't mind spending my holiday there.
The story is told in first person. Jane True is a very interesting character, who finds humour even in dark situations. It helps her deal with a lot of things gone wrong in her life. In the beginning Jane knows nothing about the supernatural world or her heritage as a half human, half selkie. Seeing the selkie myth used this way is a lot of fun. Jane isn't exactly a kick ass heroine or magical power battery. In fact, she's not an active heroine at all, more something of a catalyst. She changes things by existing, by being who she is and asking the right questions in the right moments. While this could be boring, it somehow isn't. Fortunately Jane's active potential is going to grow as she learns more about her heritage and powers.
There are some chick-litty moments in this book. Peeler pays a little bit too much attention to clothing and sex for my taste. When Jane is introduced into the supernatural world, she feels liberated at first and Ruyu, the sexy vampire detective, makes her feel wanted and desired. She's like a desert flower, blooming after a long dry period. And somehow this includes a lot of sex. Those scenes are not overly graphic or long (Peeler doesn't attempt to do a Hamilton, no worries), but there are a lot of them. Have I already mentioned there is a lot of sex? And clothing, but that's negligible. I didn't mind too much, because it felt right for the character development and didn't disrupt the plot too much. Besides, I doubt that those two will stay a couple for long, they are too different and their long term goals don't match. In fact, I enjoy the notion of a heroine being with a man who is right for her in a particular moment and not waiting for her soulmate. Let's face it. Not every man you kiss before you find your prince is a frog. Sometimes he's a prince while you're kissing him.

Don't let yourself be discouraged by the cover. Nicole Peeler has written a great book and I can't wait for the next installment.
