Real Reviews from Real Readers warn you to beware:

5 STARS: I laughed so hard I almost peed a little.

5 STARS: I fell out of bed laughing...

5 STARS: Fans of Charlaine Harris and Janet Evanovich will enjoy Dead Eye. Alyssa Day has done it again! She's written a story that's so much fun to read that you don't want to put it down

5 STARS: Ms. Day's books are so full of fun, great writing, and wonderful plots, I have a hard time putting them down. If you are in the mood for a great, fun mystery, look no further than this book/novella. You don't need to have read the first one to enjoy this one, although I do recommend reading from the beginning. And, I do recommend all of her books. Try this one today!

5 STARS: A light, humorous mystery. It read well, evoked laughs and drew you in so that you couldn't put it down. The author, Alyssa Day, never fails to mesmerize the reader. Her characters' thoughts, actions and words draw you in to such that it's like talking or listening to your best friends.

"Next up in the series is Private Eye... No reader I know will be able to resist this follow-up featuring the new owner of Dead End Pawn and her grandmother the banshee. When Dead End is hit with a banshee kidnapping spree, Tess' partner Jack gets his first case as a P.I. How fabulously offbeat!" -- Kathy Altman for USA Today, on PRIVATE EYE

Funny, exciting. Well written, the reader cares for the characters; supposedly this is a Jack story, but Tess steals the show. Looking forward to other entries in the series.

Love this new series. It is an off shoot from her Atlantis series centering around her tiger shifter, Jack. Interesting characters with lots of whimsy built in. It keeps your interest and makes you laugh and sometimes even teaches you a life lesson in a good way.

I have been a fan of Ms. Day's since I read the first book of the Warriors of Poseidon series so many years ago. This series has not changed my opinion of her writing at all! Tess Callahan inherited Dead End Pawn and, through the events of book one, became sole owner. In this book/novella, she and Jack meet her grandmother the banshee. Her grandmother needs Jack's help in finding out who is killing the banshees before she becomes the next victim. Hilarity ensues as Tess gets to know her grandmother and, in the process, find out why no one told her she still had one. Ms. Day's books are so full of fun, great writing, and wonderful plots, I have a hard time putting them down. If you are in the mood for a great, fun mystery, look no further than this book/novella. You don't need to have read the first one to enjoy this one, although I do recommend reading from the beginning. And, I do recommend all of her books. Try this one today! Thanks to the author for the e-copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

Finally Jack gets his own story but sweet Tess steals the show. My only complaint is I wish it was longer!

Private Eye is a fun paranormal mystery. Tess doesn’t touch people because she sees how they are going to die. She meets the reason for that when her estranged grandmother shows up and is a banshee. She needs Tess & Jacks help discovering who is making banshees disappear. This is a fun mystery and I love how Tess and Jack are evolving.

Jack and Tess are back with this exciting second installment of the Tiger Eye Mystery series!!! Tess meets her banshee grandmother that she didn't know she had when she comes to Dead End to ask for Jack's help in finding the person responsible for the rash of banshee kidnappings. In meeting Leona, Tess gets a few answers to her questions about her death vision and where it came from and Tess being Tess somehow finds herself in the middle of all the danger which makes Jack a very unhappy kitty. I can't wait for the next one since Jack and Tess are finally, officially, dating!!! July can't get here soon enough :)

Alyssa Day has out done herself again!!! Wonderfully written, funny and nail biting suspense. Another keeper !! Can't wait to see where Tess and Jack will end up. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Wish I could give more stars***********

This story of Jack and Tess just grabs your heart and holds on tight. It's sexy and funny and full of suspense. Never a dull moment. It caters to all of your senses. Excellent read. Can't wait for the next book!!

*I received ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review* Alyssa Day does it again!! A wonderfully written, funny, sweet with just that edge of southern charm, book that keeps you on the edge. When Tess finds out more about her past and her abilities, and about her true feelings for Jack the tiger shifter (and in turn his discovery of his true feelings about her) things get interesting, intriguing and dangerous. Between a tiger shifter, a banshee, magic toys, Fluffy the alligator, an ornery goat, a voice appearance of our favorite P-Ops agent and assassins on the loose, theres never a dull moment in Dead End, Florida!
