The Spirit Tree by Kathryn M. Hearst

From the Back Cover:

Tessa Lamar, a Southern girl with a crazy family and a brand new college degree, wants nothing more than for her life to finally start. When her uncle dies unexpectedly, she inherits more than his old truck. As lifetimes of family secrets send her carefully planned world into a tailspin, she realizes nothing will ever be the same.
After learning that she is not only a Firebird, but also half Nunnehi--the Cherokee equivalent to fairy--Tessa is forced to fight for her life against a conjurer determined to kill her, Tribal Elders trying to manipulate her, a crazier-than-a-bat mother, wolves, snakes, and one pissed off ghost. Worse still, she's caught between a gorgeous blue-eyed cop and a Nunnehi bodyguard who she can't decide if she wants to throttle or kiss. Good thing she was raised by two tough Southern ladies.

The Spirit Tree is the first of the Tessa Lamar Novels, a Paranormal Romance with a Southern twist. If you like down south humor, supernatural creatures, and a healthy dose of romance, then you'll love this series.

My Thoughts:

Whoever said that you can't judge a book by its cover needs to read this one!  The cover art is gorgeous!  The storyline grabbed me too.  I have read a great number of romance novels and books that include shifters, but never one that includes Native American folklore.  I would have liked to have read more about the Nunnehi, which in itself is a fascinating tale.  Kathryn Hearst did do a good job with this story though.  Lots of twists and turns!   There were a few times I got a bit lost as the story was moving so quickly.  But all in all, this was an interesting book.

My Rating:
