Summary

The truth is out there...maybe.

Charlie Rhodes has a lot going on. The recent college graduate just landed her dream job. That's right. She's a bona fide monster hunter. No, you read that right. Charlie has joined the Legacy Foundation, and her actual job is to find something new, wonderful and scientifically unique.

Her first job as the junior member of the team involves a biggie. It seems Bigfoot - no, the one and only Sasquatch extraordinaire itself - may have killed a woman in Hemlock Cove, Michigan. Within hours of landing at her new job Charlie finds herself traveling to an odd little town in the middle of nowhere to discover if Bigfoot is real.

Charlie hits the ground running, excitement practically overwhelming her. The dead woman worked at a local resort and was very popular with her male colleagues. That means there are plenty of human suspects, but Charlie and her team are determined to prove the culprit was animal, not human.

Hemlock Cove boasts numerous mysteries, of course, and when the team checks in to a local inn called The Overlook they find a gaggle of wacky women to contend with. On top of the potential Bigfoot issue, Charlie is convinced there's something going on with the Winchester women and she's determined to get to the bottom of the secrets she's convinced they're keeping.

That's on top of the fact that Charlie is keeping her own secret. She's psychic and telekinetic - and exactly the sort of person the Legacy Foundation would like to find. That means she's hiding in plain sight, and she's desperate to make sure nobody figures that out.

Charlie is in for a wild ride, one that includes a magical adventure and concludes with a potentially deadly face-off. Will she survive long enough to catch a second case, or will she fall victim to a killer that could come in almost any form?

It is ok

I have quite a few of Amanda M. Lee books. They are all 3 star listen. If you wonder why I get another one, well... The story-lines are fun. Every story entertains me. I just wish the characters were less annoying.
There is only so much teenage angst in people in their mid twenties and older one can listen to. I found that speeding through the bits where the main is completely stupid (she often really is), where she does/says things without thinking (usually insulting somebody or hurting their feelings or putting everybody in danger just to be contrary) is self-righteous and condescending without having any right to be (all Lee heroines are like this, she calls it snark, I call it annoying).
If you can discard all that (will leave you with maybe 15% of the book), you will be well entertained as Lee writes otherwise well.
Too much Winchesters here to my taste as somebody else mentioned.
