Nocturne Falls #6

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year.
The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.
Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.
For romance writer Roxy St. James, living in Nocturne Falls also means a fresh start. And as soon as her unbearable ex signs the divorce papers, that new beginning will be a reality. Unfortunately, her ex doesn’t seem ready to let her go and the subtle threats he’s been making leave her no choice but to confide in her oh-so-handsome neighbor, who just happens to be a deputy with the sheriff’s department.
But Officer Alex Cruz isn’t just the law. He’s also a panther shifter, a secret he’s sworn to keep (along with the truth about Nocturne Falls) from the very foxy Roxy. Humans aren’t supposed to know the town is filled with supernaturals. Then she starts seeing things she shouldn’t and thinks she’s losing her mind. His attraction—and concern—for her wars with the promise he’s made.
Will his truth be more than she can handle? Or will it cause her to write him out of her life?
The Shifter Romances The Writer is book six in the Nocturne Falls series by Kristen Painter. This was another fun light-hearted read in the Nocturne Falls series.
Nocturne Falls is a fun town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. How cool is that? We are treated to a verity of different supernaturals and each book gives us a new couple to fall in love with.
Roxy St James is a romance writer, divorced and look for a new start. She moves to Nocturne Falls for that new start and to reconnect with an old friend from college, Delany, who we meet in The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride.Thou things are not as they seem and she soon starts to see things and wonders if she’s going crazy.
Alex Cruz is an officer of the law and a panther shifter who is sworn to keep the towns secret, yet his new neighbor brings out his protective instincts. He wants to tell her that she’s not going crazy, but humans are not to know about the supernaturals in Nocturne Falls. What will this shifter do?
Both Roxy and Alex where relatable. I real likes Roxy. She’s strong, capable, and determined to get her life back on track and find herself again. I like that we see what a toxic relationship can do and how instead of staying she gets herself out and gains her life back. I also really liked Alex. He’s wonderful, sweet, and protective in a good way. I loved meeting his family and seeing how strong the family ties are to each other.
Their romance is sweet and cute. I had a lot of fun with them and the weird things happening around Roxy. Those weird things added a little mystery to the story.
The Shifter Romances The Writer was a sweet and fun read. Great for an afternoon tea or a nice summer read.
