{Review} Shades of Desire (Jude Magdalyn #2) by L.M. Pruitt

Shades of Desire (Jude Magdalyn #2)
by L.M. Pruitt
Publisher: Red Hot Publishing
Released: January 20th 2012
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy
How I got it: From the author via Bewitching Book Tours

All I wanted was a little peace and quiet.
Instead, I've got dead Covenant members and a steady stream of letters from the new guy in town. His beverage of choice? A 2002 Merlot, with a shot or two of powerful virgin blood.
On top of that, I'm breaking in a new police liaison, failing at playing matchmaker, and fighting nausea like it's a full time job.
Did I forget to mention that I've also got enough girls living at the Crossroads to start my own boarding school? Peace and quiet? Out the window. --Jude Magdalyn Henries

Review: I think I actually liked this one more than the first of the series. Probably because it's more up my alley than the first book, with the whole murder mystery thing. I enjoy a good suspense  All the twist and turns in the plot kept me reading. The magic brought a interesting aspect to the book.
I thought Jude was more subdued in this book. While still sassy, witty, and kick she was more authorial and parental. I kinda liked her no nonsense attitude. Her personal life is still in chaos and spiraling down.
I found all the romance floating around nice, as a diversion from the murder in helped balance the book in my opinion. Yet Ms Pruitt seemed to know how to weave all this into the plot. Which made it even more engaging. Oh and the bombshell ending had me scrambling to get book three out and reading...
