Dead Letter Day is number three in this ongoing series. In this latest installment we learn that Melina’s friend Paul has gone missing and she must find out the how and why of it. There seems to be than meets the eye to his disappearance and Melina may be the only one who can figure it all out especially since no one else seems to think anything is wrong. 

This new adventure for Melina brings new powers and emotions for her to work through. She is great woman but she is still growing up and I enjoyed seeing her grow and flourish some more in this book. Melina must deal with an enemy that may be too much for her but in order to save her friend she must try. She does all that she can and is more than willing to fight for those that she cares about. I loved the take on the cow in this story. That alone may be worth the reading of the book. Melina is growing with each book and this shows us a great deal of emotions and understandings from her. I hope that we get to see her continue on this path especially with the surprise she gets in this installment.

The story moves fast and keeps the reader’s attention. While you could probably read it as a standalone it is better to read the other books in the series first to better understand the workings and characters of this world. Adventure and romance make this a good read and a nice installment that not only gives us a more insightful look into werewolves but also has the reader eagerly waiting for the next book.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
