Romance Book Review: Coyote Gorgeous

Author: Vijaya Schartz
ISBN: 978-1-934657-34-8
Genre: Shape-shifter/ Paranormal
Publisher: Sapphire Blue Publishing


Using the Urban Legend of the Chupacabar, Vijaya Schartz brings readers an original mystery.

As described in the book: “Chupacabra?” Madison chuckled. “The legendary blood-sucking creature? Four-foot tall? Hairless? With a spiked spine and a long snout? Hops on two legs?”

In Coyote Gorgeous, Fish and Game ranger, Madison is on the trail of an animal that killed a horse and two deadly dogs on a local ranch. The foot prints aren't anything she's ever seen before and the ranch hand who saw the deadly creature that killed the animals insists that he saw an animal that she only knows as a myth--the Chupacabra.

While searching for clues, the end of the footprint trail leads to local artist Kal. Kal is intrigued by the beautiful ranger and offers his property for Madison to lie in wait for the creature, but things don't go as expected. Along they way indian lure and mythical creatures come to life.

While reading this book I became so fascinated about the subject matter and the legend of the Chupacabra that I had to stop and do some research on the net. Living in California we hear constantly about Big Foot, but I hadn't heard of the Chupacabra. I liked the fact that the author used the legend of the Chupacabra and that I could find out more information on it. Both Madison and Kal were excellent characters. Their personalities worked well together. I even thought that Madison's womanizing boss was well written. Definitely an interesting book for shape-shifter, paranormal and urban legend fans.

Arizona Game Ranger Madison Huntley discovers disturbing details while investigating a wild animal attack on a horse ranch in Cave Creek, Arizona. As a biologist and wildlife expert she believes in facts and science--not the scary legends frightening the ranch hand.

When Kaletaka, a Hopi sculptor, awakens bloody with no recollection of the night before, he remembers the legends of his tribe.

Can Madison solve the mystery killings and insure the safety of the town? Let alone her own safety? Each step closer to the truth and to Kaletaka unleashes an unspeakable evil, and no one is safe…
