Book & Author details:

Taking Chances by Rita Webb and T.J. Webb 
(Paranormal Investigations #2)
Publication date: January 7th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance


How far would you go to save a friend?

People are going missing in Kodiak, Alaska.

The evidence: bloody bear prints larger than any bear Jason or Emma have ever seen and black ooze that can eat the flesh from bones.

Bears don’t wander into busy shopping districts, turn off security alarms, and break into stores. When Emma’s friend goes missing, Jason and Emma realize the cops aren’t up to handling the situation.

Something’s wrong in the paranormal world. Can Jason and Emma fix things before someone else gets hurt?

Purchase (The entire series will be free from Feb 9th to the 13th):

4 out of 5 (very good)

I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

This book continues with Emma and Jason's story as Emma returns home. Her sister, Angelina, is still missing and we see the other side of the events through Emma's eyes. It is heartbreaking for her when she sees the state of her mother, her father and the town in general. There is something going on and Emma has to make a choice of whether or not she wants to know more and become more involved.

Jason isn't prepared to let Emma get away from him any longer. He has waited this long and since they have had their first kiss, he is taking action to make Emma more than just his best friend.

This story is really in-depth and detailed - there is a LOT going on. Jason finds out who he is, there are some strange, crazy people loose around town, an even stranger bear that really, considering the size, shouldn't be that difficult to find plus knowing just who you can trust and who isn't who or what they appear to be.

This story moved me in ways that I wasn't expecting - the way that Emma's mother behaves, the choices and reactions that are made. I won't give anything more away but if you read it, you'll know what I mean.

A wonderful addition to the Paranormal Investigations series and I am looking forward to the rest that is still to come. Highly recommended.

Our adventure started with a camping trip and a bottle of whiskey. Apparently Rita is a scary monster, and TJ needed liquid courage to give her that first kiss.

When not fighting over who gets to read our favorite books first, we’re swapping kisses, plot ideas, and movie quotes in the kitchen.

Together, we home-school our three girls, who keep us busy with art, science projects, books to read, dance classes, and walks about the park.

Come play a little hooky with us by getting our first book for free on our website:
