Review and Giveaway for Under Wraps by Hannah Jayne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sick of wrongful-death lawsuits every time
a full moon comes around?
Call the Underworld Detection Agency.

As a human immune to magic, Sophie Lawson can help everyone from banshee to zombie transition into normal, everyday San Francisco life. With a handsome werewolf as her UDA boss and a fashionista vampire for a roommate, Sophie knows everything there is to know about the undead, the unseen, and the uncanny. . .

Until a rash of gruesome murders has demons and mortals running for cover, and Sophie finds herself playing sidekick to detective Parker Hayes. Dodging raging bloodsuckers, bad-tempered fairies, and love-struck trolls is one thing. But when Sophie discovers Parker isn't what he seems, she's got only one chance to figure out whom to trust. Because an evil hiding in plain sight is closing in. . .and about to make one wisecracking human its means to ultimate power. . .

I have really been looking for something different to read, but stay in the world of Vampires, Werewolves, Fae etc. Under Wraps is just what I was looking for and much much more! Sophie works for the UDA the underworld Detective Agency. She is the only mortal living there; well she’s kind of mortal her ability to not be affected by magic helps out in a world where everyone uses magic in the Underworld. Her boss Sampson is a hot werewolf, her best friend is a vampire, and her grandmother was a seer before she past making Sophie thinks she might get those abilities one day.

The action begins when a detective from the mortal world come into the Underworld and visits the UDA. There have been strange murders happening and Parker Hayes comes in to ask Sophie’s boss Sampson for help. But since there are circumstances that keep Sampson in the Underworld he sends Sophie to help Hayes since the case shows unusual signs that connect it to the Underworld. Hayes and Sophie have a fun bickering relationship right of and she doesn’t give in that easily even though she wants to. I liked how normal she was and that at the murder scenes she wasn’t the normal tough heroine that can handle death, she felt and got sick from the scene.

After the murder occurs her boss Sampson goes missing which stir things up in the Underworld since he is a key figure. Hayes and Sophie work together to find out the murders and Sampson disappearance are connected. Lots of action, creatures popping in and out, learning how to use a gun, and some hilarious scenes happen with the Hayes and Sophie. Plus her new partner Parker Hayes has his own secret and Sophie and her best friend start to figure it out.

I really enjoyed this book and the characters her best friend who is a vampire is funny and a shopaholic, who also has a nephew who decides to be called Vlad. It was a quick and awesome read and I can’t wait for the second one. The ending is a good cliffhanger so I was happy that I don’t have to be depressed for so long waiting for the next but I still am excited to have this new series.
