Somebody just stole a valuable artifact from the Helsen archives, and Annemette Helsen—a very pissed off werewolf—is going to make sure they pay for it.
There’s just one problem: Anna’s only suspect is the arrogant vampire prince, Jonas Weiss. He’s cocky, frustrating, and a little bit sexy. Okay, a lot sexy.
He also claims to be innocent, so the fact that she just broke into his home and attacked him is problematic.
And his price for keeping silent about the whole debacle? Downright devious.
The short novel you’re about to consume is quick, quirky, and delicious. Get ready to enjoy the main course of romance with a side of adventure. Buckle up, it’s about to get sassy!
Sleuthing with the Enemy can be enjoyed as part of the Unnatural Alliances series or on its own.


Sleuthing with the enemy by Danielle Hardgrave was a good book to read. Even though I haven’t read the first book, I was able to fully grasped and enjoy this book. It can be read as stand alone, so don’t worry if you missed some important details.

The story revolves around the missing artifact that the human werewolves were protecting. Annemette Helsen was a shifter from human to werewolf, and vice versa. After that artifact was missing, Anna has a one suspect that possibly is the reason it was missing, and that was Jonas Weiss, which was a vampire shifter. But it became difficult for all of them to find the important artifact as what happened that they didn’t expect – they fell for each other.

Wolf and Vampire, sound familiar? Looks like Twilight-ish but the difference was, the girl was a werewolf. But don’t worry, the story was not the same as the Twilight saga.

Told from the point of view of Anna, I was able to know more about her. I admit that sometimes she annoys the crap of me because of her selfish actions, and being reckless with her decisions. Still, she was able to grow up and she is learning.

As for Jonas Weiss, a drooling vampire? Well, will you bite me, please? Just kidding. I may not have found any flaws for his character, but I didn’t find anything that would mark his character in my mind. Hmm. He was not that incredible, to be honest.

I easily emerge myself to the story as it was easy to read, and it was not that difficult to understand the whole book. Based on the synopsis, I expected that finding the missing artifact would be the main reason for this story, well it was at first; but as it progresses, the main reason now became the second option. The story became, “How the wolf and the vampire fell in love”.

And the reason that I made it as 3 stars rating was that the ending became abrupt that finding the important thing for the werewolf clan became not that important at all from the start. Well, I am bit disappointed and I am not that satisfied with the ending.

Overall, this was still a good book to read, but don’t expect too much. Just enjoy it.

Thank you, Danielle Hardgrave and Caldwell Publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
