BOOK REVIEW: Shifting Dreams (Cambio Springs #1) by Elizabeth Hunter

Goodreads description:

Somedays, Jena Crowe just can’t get a break. Work at her diner never ends, her two boys are bundles of energy, and she’s pretty sure her oldest is about to shift into something furry or feathery. Added to that, changes seem to be coming to the tiny town of Cambio Springs, big changes that not everyone in the isolated town of shapeshifters is thrilled about.

Caleb Gilbert was looking for change, and the quiet desert town seemed just the ticket for a more peaceful life. He never counted on violence finding him, nor could he have predicted just how crazy his new life would become.

When murder rocks their small community, Caleb and Jena will have to work together. And when the new Chief of Police isn’t put off by any of her usual defenses, Jena may be faced with the most frightening change of all: lowering the defenses around her carefully guarded heart.

Shifting Dreams is the first novel in Cambio Springs, the new paranormal romance series from Elizabeth Hunter, author of the best-selling Elemental Mysteries.

Mary's Review:

I was very lucky to read an ARC of Elizabeth Hunter's new series.  I am a HUGE FAN of Elizabeth Hunter's Elemental Mysteries Series and was very excited to read this.

Best Part of the Book:  This book was a real page turner!  I was captivated in Jena's world!  Actually, I loved all the characters and town!  Jena is widowed, has two boys and runs the local diner.  One night while she was helping out at the local bar a stranger comes in, Caleb!  *insert swoon here*  Caleb, who comes with his own baggage, is the town's new police chief.  But, he doesn't know the town secret.  Also, he can't enough of Jena.  Through twist and turns of a GREAT story (and a murder) Caleb becomes more like the towns people then he bargained for!  I loved it all!!!

Not so great about the book:  Actually, the book was great.  I was interested throughout the whole book! I loved the characters and story! Also, Elizabeth Hunter leaves you wanting more at the end and gives you a little peek of the second book. Can't wait for that!
