Strange Beginnings...and a Strange Beginning it was!

This book has it all: twists, turns, a crime that needed to be handled, and a few characters that you could really have a beer with...

I'm a huge fan of mysteries, and Strange Beginnings has me waiting to see what else is in store, and I'm not saying anything about the'll have to read for yourself...whew!

I highly recommend this book, and I'm looking forward to reading more from this series...Ms. Fox, you have me hooked, and that is VERY hard to do!

Intriguing and Great Story Telling

This is one of those books that you don't want to stop reading. I was perturbed each time I had to stop to do something else. There were eye-opening new things about the characters all through the book and an unexpected ending. The one thing that bothered me was the grammatical errors. I blame inadequate editing for this. That given I still recommend the book to all.

Must read!

Wow what a great story from the talented Candi Fox!!! I started this book and couldn't put it down, it is a story full of murder mystery and magic and very hot alpha male characters all wanting the attention of the very beautiful and bewitching Emma/Arabella who is on the run from a past boyfriend who once tried to kill her. Lots of action and enough going on to keep you reading. Im really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Most definitely a must read!!!

I have read this book probably 15 times since receiving it. As an avid reader I can safely say that Strange Beginnings is one of the twistiest turniest paranormal crime novels I have ever read, and in the best way possible. The characters are all relatable in one way or another, and it allows you to really fall into the mystery of this young girl's life. The ending gave me chills the first time, and the fifteenth time, and every time in between. This novel is a 20/10 and I would and will recommend it to everyone I know. I absolutely cannot wait to see more from this author!!!
