Book #61: Desert Bound by Elizabeth Hunter

Can you turn the clock back on your first love? Would you even want to try?

Alex McCann and Teodora “Ted” Vasquez left Cambio Springs together. Ted came back. Alex didn’t.

Now, years later, the future alpha of the McCann wolves has returned with plans to bring new life to the dying desert community. Plans that could change everything for the isolated enclave of shapeshifters in the California desert. Some love the plan. Others hate it.

As the town’s doctor and one of the strongest daughters in the cat clan, Ted has her own concerns about exposing her community to outsiders. The two former lovers are at each other’s throats. And everyone is watching to see what happens.

But when murder once again strikes Cambio Springs, can they overcome their past to help the community they both call home? And can the love they shared once burn again when so many stand against it?

DESERT BOUND is an adult paranormal romance in the Cambio Springs Mysteries series.

Desert Bound is the second book in the Cambio Springs series. I jumped on this book right after reading the first one. It is another murder mystery inside a romance only this time, the romance is Teodora Vasquez and Alex McCann.

Ted and Alex’s relationship is a rocky one. They constantly argue and their history together is filled with leaving one another. On paper, they would seem like a very unhealthy couple. However, they work.

In fact, their main issue with each other is resolved close to the beginning of the book. Don’t get me wrong, they don’t start off right away. There is a conversation and a meeting of minds that allow them to see their relationship. The main conflict of their relationship is actually their parents.

The murder mystery didn’t have a big position in this book, though it is prevalent to the story. I found it easy to figure out who it was, like the first book, but I loved the resolution of the murder. It was filled with tension, action, and had a shapeshifter quality that was interesting.

In all, this one wasn’t my favorite between the two, but it was entertaining. I bought the third book and am currently listening to it as I am writing this. It makes concentrating difficult.
