ARC Review: Under Suspicion by Hannah Jayne

A Case Of Mistaken Identity Can Get You Staked

Title: Under Suspicion
Author: Hannah Jayne
Series: The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles #3
Publisher: Kensington
Release Date: May 1, 2012


She’s the new head of the Underworld Detection Agency’s strangest division. What a nightmare…
Being a human immune to magic helped Sophie Lawson get promoted. It’s also made her a major, very reluctant player in a game that stretches beyond even the Underworld. Having handsome buttoned-down Englishman Will as her new guardian is one tempting blessing, especially since sexy fallen angel Alex is mysteriously MIA lately. But as a frightening number of demons start disappearing around the city, Sophie suspects that an Armageddon-level prophecy is about to become everyone’s nightmare. And her investigation is testing her bravery — and Will’s unexpected vulnerability — in ways neither could predict. Now Sophie and Will are fast running out of time as an unstoppable evil prepares to lay waste to demons and humans alike


“In my imagination I am Sophie Lawson, Badass Investigator, Paranormak Specialist. I wear black leather, like a second skin; I wield a sexy, jeweled sword; I have the kind of hair that flies in gorgeous wisps over my naked, carved shoulders.”

When Sophie Lawson an employee with the Underworld Detection Agency begins noticing that paranormals including clients of hers are coming up missing. Determined to figure out what evil is lurking to destroy paranormals true to Sophie nature she goes against everybody’s  wishes and dives head first into a dangerous investigation and worrying about the consequences later. Quickly Sophie discovers that anyone that associates with her open for attack from the predator because there are signs that point Sophia as being the prime intended target. If Sophie doesn’t move fast she might just find all her loves ones around her destroyed.

“Like imagining Alex Grace greased up with the coconut oil and reclining on a beach—Why couldn’t I fall in love with an inmate , like a normal woman? “

When Sophia’s roommate Nina begins dating Harvey a novelist writing to exploit vampires, it’s a laughable Plot I enjoyed. Harvey doesn’t really believe Vampires exist, yet Harvey has no idea Nina is a vampire and Sophie is being mistaken for a Vampire. The irony in that made me laugh out loud several times throughout this book.

“Alex was an earthbound angel. Fallen, if you want to be technical. But he lacked the certain technicality that made other fallen angels so annoying: he didn’t want to kill me. Most of the time.”

With Alex being called away out of town for an investigation this opens up the doors for Sophie to get closer to Will because he must protect her. I actually enjoyed this interaction because I didn’t get bored with this new love interest and it was about time Sophie wasn’t such a fan girl after Alex even though I’m a fan of his as well. Under Suspicion has set the next installment of The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles to be filled with romance and a powerful love triangle as well!

Overall this was an action packed adventure with lots of laughter and mystery to keep me guessing. I look forward to the next installment in the adventures of Sophie and the Underworld Detection Agency. My only regret is that I want more romance in Sophie’s life, but Hannah Jayne left me wanting more especially with that last sentence,  “It’s been a long time, Sophie.” and I hope to get it sooner rather than later.

    this sounds interesting. I’m not a big detective person either, but that ending’s got me intrigued. it sounds sad and romantic and tragic all at the same time. I want to know what happened between the two!
