Book Review for Baerhly Breathing!!

A spin-off of the popular Cindy Eller series.
The first book in the Goldie Locke and the Were Bears series.
It’s difficult to be taken seriously when you are a member of the Magical community and saddled with the unfortunate name ‘Goldie Locke’. It certainly doesn’t help if you are also about five feet tall, blond, and most commonly described as ‘cute.’. What was a girl to do?
Become one of the most dreaded Magical environmental lawyers of all time?
Goldie isn’t there yet, but she’s well on her way when a case drags her into uncharted territory– working with Ordinary officials to figure out why ‘unusual’ remains are being discovered all around New England.
With her hands full and a new dragon on the way, Goldie’s hunches about this case may prove to be all-too true– this stuff is bad business!


First, I would like to say... that I really want a pink elephant for a pet!!  She was so damn cute, and I really wanted one for myself... 

This book wasn't what I thought it would be.  I read the blurb, but I still have my thoughts on what I thought it would be like.  I loved that I was totally wrong!!

Goldie Locke is an investigator for the Baehr Brothers.  Usually, she is investigating Magicals who have obtained illegal Magical creatures.  Which means, she's the one who has to take care of creatures she rescues.  

Her ex, Kobi Baehr, the youngest of the three brother's she works for, tells her she is needed for a special assignment.  Curious, she goes is an Ordinary.. a human... and finds out why she needed to be.  She meets a local cop working on a strange case.  Someone, an Ordinary, has been killing Magical Creatures.  It is up to Goldie and Donovan to find out who is killing these creatures.  

Soon, the killer doesn't just stop at Magical Creatures.  He starts targeting Magical Beings as well, by sucking out their power.  They don't know how he's doing it, but do know that he has to be stopped!

When Goldie's pink elephant Petunia goes missing, things really start heating up. Goldie is worried sick about her beloved elephant, and struggles with her growing feelings for the Ordinary cop and the ever present Kodi.  Her feelings for him are still unsettled, and knowing the cop is in the picture doesn't make things any better with him.

Soon, they find the killer's true motive for killing the Magicals.  Goldie puts herself into a position that almost costs her her life.  She knows it needs to be done, but still she wasn't expecting the killer to be so strong with her power.

I read this book in a day!!  While I was doing laundry!  What better way to spend the waiting time on the dryer?!?!?  I was glued to it!  Also... I really want a pink elephant!!!  The animal lover in me totally loved her little collection of magical creatures... that included a baby dragon!!!  Would love one of those too!!!  

She had two men in her life, that at times, made things difficult for her. She loved Kodi, but knew there were things that needed to sorted out first before they could be together.  The cop was smexy!!!!  He wanted to be all tough and unassuming, but she quickly saw there was another side to him!  Everything about her life and who she was, he accepted without freeking out, and it helped she wasn't at all who he thought she would be.  

Goldie was a great character!  She comes off as "cute", but then proves she's tough as nails and super smart! No one can fool her if they try to!  


Legend has it that Elizabeth A Reeves was born with a book in her hands and immediately requested a pony. Though this story is questionable, it is true that books and horses have been consistent themes in her life. Born in Massachusetts, she was quickly transplanted to Arizona by a professor father and creativity-driven mother, who is the one responsible for saying “If you can’t find a book that you want to read, write a book you want to read.”
In her spare time, she likes to knit, weave, hatch chickens, and chase after her husband and four sons.
