Speed Date: In a Fix by Linda Grimes

The Deal: Ciel is an aura shape-shifter, as in she can mimic anyone's aura and appear to be them. That's what she does for a living, taking someone's form and get things done for them. Her current job should be easy: get a proposal out of some girl's boyfriend. 

But what seems easy quickly turns complicated when her mark is kidnapped by vikings. And, of course, Ciel is there to jump into the thick of things with her almost-cousin Billy and her long-time crush  Mark (who also happens to be a CIA agent). 

My Thoughts: I got In a Fix when Sandy @ Pirate Penguin Reads told me I should and it turned to be quite  nice read even if a bit out of my comfort zone since this is Urban Fantasy all the way.

Now, the beginning of the book is kind to hard, I think I started to read it like three times before I made it pass chapter three because you are kind of thrown into the situation without much of a set up or warning.

But once things start to pick up, they turn amazing.

My one trouble with the book is that I could have used a little more back story on the characters, but maybe said back story will be doled out later as this is the start of a new series.

What's a Book Speed Date, you ask? It's a quickie review--about 150 words or so--of any genre book (variety is the spice of life, after all).
