"True Colors" By: Thea Harrison Review

"True Colors" 
By: Thea Harrison 
Meeting your soulmate? Great. Preventing your possible murder? Even better.

Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she’s just found the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a wolf Wyr and current detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime—and, as Alice oh-so-inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate.

But the sudden connection Riehl and Alice feel is complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again. And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.

My Thoughts: 
     I have been a fan of this entire Wyr series by Thea Harrison. I originally picked up the first title because Goodreads had it added as one of the best romances of 2011. "True Colors" is a short story that exists within this series featuring new characters. A few of the older characters make appearances, but this was a fun look at new people within the same world.
     Alice is a schoolteacher and a special type of Wyr since she is a chameleon. Gideon is a wolf shapeshifter and works as a detective. When Gideon stumbles upon a crime scene, he finds Alice and instant attraction develop. Gideon must save Alice from a crazed killer and in the meantime, they become close. The romance is sweet, building slowly yet believably.
     The only negative thing I have to say about this is the length. It was only 100 pages and I feel it could have easily been made into a novel. Fun short story and I hope to see these characters in future books! If you have enjoyed the rest of the Wyr series, this will be a wonderful addition. I wouldn't recommend this book for people who haven't read the full length novels, it may be just a tad confusing.
