Shady Lady is a book that shows tremendous growth in the Corinne Solomon series. Ann Aguirre has this amazing ability to dream up and write extremely unique characters and place the setting of her stories in places that come alive on the pages of her book. The first two books in this series created distinct reactions in my mind - one, I loved the characters, the setting and the "talents/abilities" of the characters; two - the main character's reaction and interactions with her love interests (yes that is plural) drove me crazy and detracted from the storyline.

Corine solomon novels. Thank you for the DMV, District 9, and the Toys R Us Bakugan mission. I hit the jackpot the day you said, I don’t know if I can sell a science fiction novel, but I think I want the challenge. As always, I thank Anne Sowards. Her notes make every book better and I am so lucky to work with her, along with all the other talented people at Penguin. No commitment, cancel anytime.

She never fails to make me feel better when the chips are down, and she’s first to cheer me on when I score. Lauren is so talented and so smart, and I am so lucky I can run things by her while I’m working. My books wouldn’t be as good if I didn’t have her ear. Here’s a shout to Bree and Donna. Both of you have been there, and I appreciate it more than words can say. I’d give either of you my seat in the lifeboat any day.

I'd spent my whole life settling, trying not to attract attention, and generally doing whatever it took to keep other people happy. I didn't want to do that again. Not when I was finally comfortable in my own skin. Sure, there were certain challenges, like a drug lord who wanted me dead, and the fact that I owed a demon a debt that he could call due at any moment. But everybody's got problems, right? Whenever Corine Solomon touches an object, she immediately knows its history. But her own future concerns her more and more. Now back in Mexico, she's running her pawnshop and trying to get a handle on her strange new powers, for she might need them. And soon. Then former ally Kel Ferguson walks through her door. Heavily muscled and tattooed, Kel looks like a convict but calls himself a holy warrior. This time, he carries a warning for Corine: the Montoya cartel is coming for her--but they don't just pack automatic weapons. The Montoyas use warlocks, shamans, voodoo priests--anything to terminate trouble. And Corine has become enemy number one...

Shady Lady is a book that shows tremendous growth in the Corinne Solomon series. Ann Aguirre has this amazing ability to dream up and write extremely unique characters and place the setting of her stories in places that come alive on the pages of her book. The first two books in this series created distinct reactions in my mind - one, I loved the characters, the setting and the "talents/abilities" of the characters; two - the main character's reaction and interactions with her love interests (yes that is plural) drove me crazy and detracted from the storyline. I love how Ann Aguirre writes about an American woman living in Mexico - having been one myself years ago, I can say with confidence that Aguirre gets it right and makes me feel like I am back there doing it all over again. I love how Aguirre writes her characters. Nothing is easy, there is a cost to talent and there are consequences to choices. The people in Corinne's life are unique and quirky - -much like real people in real life are.

So Shady Lady finds Corinne back in Mexico, I was already cheering from the beginning of the story. And there are some positive things that develop in Corinne's love life that were much more tolerable and enjoyable than in the first few books. The quest/challenge is interesting and not predictable at all. So where does this leave me with the series?

I love Aguirre's Sirantha Jax series. That is one of my all time favorite series - a character driven story, amazing setting and hard choices. Aguirre never takes the easy way out as a writer and I love reading those kinds of stories. I wish that the first two in the Corinne Solomon series were automatic wins for me, but there is enough meaty stuff there that encouraged me to keep going and I am glad that I did. I plan to read #4 in this series, Devil's Punch, very soon and cannot wait for #5 to be released. If you like complex UF books, with richly developed interesting characters and very unique settings then I think you would like this book. But ... you have to understand that there are flaws with books one and two, there is a pay off to sticking with the series. The books improve and by the third, Shady Lady, the series is strong and very enjoyable. It has taken my 2 years to get to book 3 and I am thankful that I kept going. I cannot think of another UF series out there where the author is writing such diverse and interesting characters with settings that come alive and make you feel like you are there. So stick with this series. I promise you will be happy you did.

The problem with this series is a bigee, the main character is selfish and willfully ignorant. She completely lacks self-awareness of any kind. She whines incessantly about how poorly done to she is without seeing the very behaviors she is whining about in her own actions.

Not to mention this book seems to count on the reader having no recall of book #1 where Chance and his mother are the targets of the bad guy. Now suddenly it is focused entirely on her, which makes absolutely ZERO sense.

In addition, the "relationship" with Jesse is 100% unbelievable. His character is a stand up guy who deservse FAR, FAR better than Corine. In fact, she brings nothing but misery to his life so his being madly in love with her is completely unbelievable. He has known her for the equivalent of 10 minutes and yet he wants to give her the moon and the stars.

I just find the characters actions unbelievable and irritating. I only read the 3rd book because I was dumb enough to do the 4-3 promotion and bought the first 4 books. Ugh, don't make the same mistake, so not worth it.

This book is a Paranormal mystery, romance, and fantasy for adults. It is finely written and the characters, are entirely believable, even though they bridge fantasy situations.

The leading Lady is Corine Solomon, a common woman with ancient lines of Solomon in her blood which give her 'powers' to fight the dark side of life. In this volume her powers increase as do life threatening encounters.

A dark Cartel lord decides to 'use' Corine to end another Cartel's leader. Corine is forced, in order to save the very ones she loves, to go along with this plan. Not only must she fight very human evil persons, she must deal with demons and her increasing powers.

This book may be a fantasy but it makes you think about your own life choices that are made daily, perhaps, without as much thought as we should apply. Is Corine joining the dark side?

This is the 3rd book in the series and I hope the series lives a long life.

I really appreciate the author's writing style. The characters are well rounded with layers,several points of interest and complexity. The plot has texture and nuiances with hints of intrigue to come. Corine is fun she is smart, tough, vulnerable and loyal. She isn't a superhero but a person who steps up as crisis reach her and makes difficult choices. She is finding her strength as she is facing some pretty scary advesaries. Her struggles are not neat with easy solutions for every move their are consequences some are happy some devastating. I think Ann gave enough hints about Chance's origins and I am anxious to see if I am right. After three books I'm more vested and intrigued by the characters. Great read start with 1st in series and I also recommend Jax series!
