The Hunt for the Big Bad Wolf/E.M. Tippetts
"Chloe knew she was giving up the quiet life when she married Hollywood A-lister, Jason Vanderholt. She expected harassment from paparazzi but not from the writers of Blood Ritual, a television crime drama that brought national attention to a tough case she is trying to solve as a forensic scientist. While she and the rest of the Albuquerque Police Department once collaborated with the show, now relations have gone sour, and details that the police are trying to keep secret in the investigation are cropping up in episodes watched by millions.
If that weren’t enough, everyone in Chloe’s life seems to be going through a rough patch, from her best friend, Lori, who is trying to plan a wedding, to her niece Kyra who is upset about Jason’s choice of television roles, to Jason himself who is inexplicably moody and withdrawn. None of this drama is the type of thing Chloe knows how to resolve.
She is trained to do one thing: hunt down the big bad wolves of the world. But with her connections to fame compromising her work, she may not even be allowed to stay on the case. The clock is ticking as law enforcement agencies across the country try to find a serial killer before he strikes again. Chloe is faced with a choice, to help catch one of the most evil criminals in history, or provide support to the friends and family who have always been there for her. Either way, she feels she might make the mistake of a lifetime."
Satisfied in the catching of the Big Bad Wolf! I want to see what happens in the future, maybe a baby Vanderholt......? The world keeps turning and a well deserved closure comes in an unexpected way for Chloe while in her work life.
Chloe for me has a great outlook on life. She doesn't over react and seems to always be the voice of reason to those around her. When she sets her mind to it she gets things done, even when she is taken off a case.
For someone who has had to deal with what she has for most of her life, she seems like a good role model to look up to. She does have her insecurities as everyone does, and that is what makes her human.
I have read most of Emily's books and am a big fan of her writing and style. Such a great imagination and researcher. Every character is different and has a touch of something unique. If you are looking for a series of books with romance, drama, and comedy with a touch of fairytale happily ever after, then don't pass up this series.
