“There was a dead werewolf in the twenty-four hour laundromat just down the street from my house.” If that first line doesn’t make you stop and wonder just what kind of book you’ve picked up then I don’t know what will.

Today I’m reviewing Guilty by Association (Judah Black Novels Book 1) by EA Copen. I read it ages ago and realized I hadn’t posted my review here. This is such a good book I can’t help but share it with you.
Agent Judah Black works for BSI, the Bureau of Supernatural Investigation, but she’s no ordinary agent. She’s gritty, tough and incredibly independent. So independent in fact that BSI has relegated her to Paint Rock, an uninteresting, two bit paranormal reservation where society’s undesirables; werewolves, vampires and their like, have been relegated to live. What she discovers there, as she settles in to her dingy office with it’s broken furniture and barely functioning computer, is that the paranormal world is so much more than she ever imagined.
The mission of BSI is to regulate the paranormal population and help them live peacefully alongside the humans. Judah will discover not only is it so much more than that but also that it’s never as easy as it sounds.
Her adventure, as she investigates a werewolf’s murder, takes her on a ride she never expected and will have you page turning well into the night, long after you should have gone to sleep.
I loved Guilty by Association, in case you couldn’t tell. EA Copen is one of my favorite authors, her no nonsense characters are real and relate-able, people you can identify with, well other than the fact that they are werewolves, vampires and fae. I would compare Copen’s writing style to a roller coaster, once you’ve crested that first hill it’s a thrilling ride of ups and downs, pitfalls and victories that leave you screaming. Oh, and it’s awfully hard to get off before it’s done.
Guilty by Association (Judah Black Novels Book 1) is available at Amazon, both in paperback and kindle versions. It’s also available at Apple, Nook, Kobo, Scribd and 24 Symbols. If you read it and love it remember to leave a review for it. EA Copen is an Indie Author and Indie’s live for reviews, not to mention honest reviews are what sell Indie Books.
FYI! I read this book ages ago before I started writing and posting reviews on my blog. In May I will be featuring EA Copen as my first Indie Author BLT Spotlight and I wanted to be sure I had reviews of her work up on my blog for your perusal. You can find my reviews of her other books here; Blood Debt, Chasing Ghosts and Kiss of Vengeance. She also has a few upcoming releases that I am eagerly looking forward to. Watch for my May spotlight so you can learn more, and find her on social media and follow her, Twitter and Facebook.
