Jumping the Shark is the fifth book in the Paranormal Talent Agency Series by Heather Silvio. As I have come to expect from Ms. Silvio, this was a really fun paranormal mystery, with some supernatural elements, politics, murder, intrigue, danger, some suspense, quirky and interesting characters, and of course, a sweet romance.
This book may be a short, easy read- but there is nothing lacking about the content. I was really intrigued about following Barbara through her story- especially considering her involvement in previous stories. I wasn’t sure her ‘story’ would live up to the other books, but I shouldn’t have doubted Ms. Silvio, because Jumping the Shark certainly doesn’t disappoint- in fact this has become my favourite of the series, so far- with only one book left to come! I love how all the books combine to build a bigger picture and things that were ‘started’ in previous books finally begin to/come together in this book. We catch up with familiar characters from previous books, as well as a few new ones- which added an extra element of interest to the story. I really enjoyed the clever mystery and the great tension that Ms. Silvio managed to create in her story. I could tell she put a lot of thought, imagination, heart, and soul into her work- the story is a credit to her writing talents.
This definitely has an original spin on the paranormal romance/mystery theme. And as I have said previously with the other books, that I think that the stories and premise would make a fun television series, too.
I am excited to read the final instalment, although it will be a bittersweet moment!
Thank you, Ms. Silvio!
