Review Karma Patrol by Kate Miller

28172498

As a karmic account enforcer, Jade Bailey makes sure that what goes around comes around. Jade has dedicated her life to Karma Division, and in return she’s expecting her own personal fairytale, complete with her dream job and love at first sight with a tall, dark, and handsome soulmate.

After more than a decade of waiting, her destined soulmate still hasn’t turned up, but a stellar annual performance review from the Powers That Be puts Jade at the top of the promotion list. All she has to do is maintain her territory’s karmic balance until the selection process is over. Naturally, a deranged shooter picks the next day to start a rampage that threatens to destroy the karmic balance of Midtown West – and, incidentally, any chance Jade has of earning that long-awaited promotion.

Unwilling to give up despite warnings from her boss, who knows the shadowy Destiny Division won’t appreciate Jade’s interference, Jade starts her own investigation. In the next shooting, she nearly becomes a victim herself, but she can’t prove her near-death experience is anything but a coincidence. Detective Luke Jackson, Jade’s unwitting and extremely unwilling soulmate, arrives on the scene to investigate. Instead of falling head over heels in love with her, Luke suspects her of being involved in the murders.

If Jade wants her fairytale ending, she’ll have to convince her soulmate she isn’t a killer while trying to catch the real culprit, a task made more difficult and infinitely more dangerous when Jade becomes the killer’s next target.

Jan Review

I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  I was not expecting the level of romance that is involved in this book it essentially a soul mate love at first site kind of romance.  It isn’t what this book is all about though the author has taken a unique concept and given us a rich story full of details, like able characters, and of course romance to swoon over.  I was wrapped up in the job that Jade does as a karmic account enforcer, what a unique job to have, i like how her quirky best friend is all about her soulmate and of course i was all swoons over her soulmate once she finds him.  I did like that their was not an instant happily ever after moment and that the relationship built nicely over the course of the story.  You had the romance but you also had the meat of the detective aspect of the case that was needing to be solved.  Very well done for a debut novel.
