This was an excellent novel. I really like October, the MC. She's gutsy, appropriately respectful and I like her voice.

The whole urban fantasy female lead as lone wolf detective with huge emotional baggage thing is getting a little worn - I'd like to write a story about a woman who is surrounded from the start with family and friends, who is cheery and positive.

Anywho, I liked that this book promises so much more while still being a contained story. The owing of favours, her unresolved relationships with her husband and daughters and the hints about what could be going on with Tybalt. I really look forward to following up on those threads.
