Hard Magic (Paranormal Scene Investigations Book 1) by Laura Anne Gilman

Welcome to P.U.P.I.—Private, Unaffiliated, Paranormal Investigations

A handpicked team trained to solve crimes the regular police can't touch—crimes of magic.

My name's Bonnie Torres. Recent college grad, magic user and severely unemployed. Until I got a call out of nowhere to interview for a job I hadn't applied for. It smelled fishy, but the brutal truth was I needed the work—so off I went.
Two days later I'm a PUPI—me and Nick, Sharon, Nifty and Pietr. Five twentysomethings, thrown into an entirely new career in forensic magic.

The first job we get is a doozy: proving that the deaths of two Talents were murder, not suicide. Worse, there are high-profile people who want us to close up shop and go away. We're sniffing out things they'd rather keep buried.
Looks as if this job is gonna get interesting. The only problem is, we're making it up as we go along….


My View:

I liked this book.  It did take me a while to get into it, but by the end I was glad a stuck with it.  This is the first book from this author that I have read and I will be checking out her other titles soon.

The characters are great, lot's of room to develop, and they are in all, very likable.  The story was good, if a little bit slow in getting going, but it seemed to flow okay and ended well.  I will be checking out the next in this series "Pack of Lies" when it comes in at my local library.
