A Study In Shifters (The Adventures of Marisol Holmes, #1)
by Majanka Verstraete
Publication date: June 26th 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult
Seventeen-year-old Marisol Holmes may be the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes, but it’s hard to live up to the family name when only one mistake can spell your downfall. After trusting the wrong guy in a case gone totally wrong, Marisol convinces the Conclave, an underground organization of detectives solving supernatural cases, to give her a last chance to prove her worth, and maybe even heal her broken heart.
After all, as a half-blood jaguar shifter, Marisol is uniquely qualified to solve this murder—and every scrap of evidence points toward the culprit being a fellow jaguar shifter. But is one of her own people involved, or is this all a ploy to kick Marisol’s mother off the shifter throne?
Then Marisol discovers her best friend, Roan, is missing, and maybe the killer’s next target. The stakes just got higher than political intrigue. Just when things couldn’t get worse, Marisol’s ex-boyfriend-turned-nemesis, Mannix, starts leaving sinister clues for her. Marisol fears this case might be far more personal than she could’ve imagined.
It’s time for Marisol to prove her worth, or her people could fall into chaos while her best friend loses his life.
Guest Post: Top 10 Book Boyfriends
Of course, my number one book boyfriend would be Roan, from The Adventures of Marisol Holmes. Although, I have to admit I have a soft spot for our villain, Mannix, as well, if he just wasn’t so… villainy. But if I had to give my top 10 Book Boyfriends from other books, here is the list I would come up with:
1. Adrian from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
2. Will from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
3. Seth from the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead
4. Daemon Black from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
5. The Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
6. Isaiah from Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
7. Naji from The Assassin’s series by Cassandra Rose Clarke
8. Bellamy from The 100 by Kass Morgan
9. Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith
10. Jace from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
