"Lynne Connolly has out done herself in the second book of the Dept 57 series"

Josh Friedland is a griffin shape-shifter that works for Dept 57, along with his brother Laurie. Laurie is missing and Josh will do anything to get him back. Josh goes to the house of George Skeffington, the man that bought his football team, the Manchester Rovers, (think soccer) near the area where his brother was last seen. Josh knows there's something wrong because he cannot contact Laurie even though they have a deep telepathic bond. The thing he has to figure out is does George or his delightful stepdaughter Chana Rafiz have anything to do with the disappearance of his brother.

Chana Rafiz has spent most of her life trying to get out from under the heavy hand of her stepfather. Every time she thinks she's gotten away he uses his influence and money to force her back home. She agrees to be his hostess, for 1 year and an exorbitant amount of money, along with a written contract stating that he has to let her go after the year is up. Chana decides that her fee will fund her new life. She doesn't count on meeting the ultra sexy Josh Friedland, but can Chana get past the playboy act to find the real man?

A Griffin's Treasure is a delightful book, with a swift plot that twists and turns more than a Twizzler. Lynne Connolly has out done herself in the second book of the Dept 57 series. Her character development is amazing. These characters make you root for them and boo the bad guys. I loved this book; in fact love all of the Dept 57 books. Lynne Connolly has created a richly diverse world that blends the different supernatural realms. This is a good addition to anyone's library that loves the paranormal. I will be watching for more of this series. I can't say enough about this book, run don't walk to buy these.
