Book Review: The Cheaters Game by CJ Archer
Book 7 in the Glass and Steele series is another win in my book!
Buffalo Bills Wild West Show is doing a tour stop in London, and with it, a slew of American cowboys and sharp shooters invade the local tavern for drinking and gambling each night. Never one to pass up a chance to play cards, India, Matt, Duke, Cyclops, and Willie spend an evening hanging out and gambling with the shows cast. After a heated argument about suspected cheating with a sharpshooter, Emmett, ends in blows, the crew wonder if something more magical is going on. When Emmett turns up dead in the alleyway that very night, Duke is naturally named a suspect. India and Matt take it upon themselves to investigate the death in an attempt to clear Dukes name. It doesn’t take long before they realize magic is definitely in play, as the deceased is suspected to be a paper magician. There is no shortage of suspects from both the traveling show, and known magicians in town, and India and Matt once again find themselves embroiled in a dangerous mystery where the killer will stop at nothing to elude exposure.
CJ Archer has struck gold with this series! The possibilities for where this sleuthing crew can go and grow is endless. I am super excited to see where the spell casting goes with the introduction of the new character, Fabian Charbonneau. Watching India learn about and develop her magic is so fun to read and I can’t wait to see where she goes from here (I have a feeling she’s gonna be a bad ass). My heart literally melted at India and Matts wedding- I could write my entire review as one long swoonfest to these two but I will spare you the sap. Bottom line…#relationshipgoals. There was plenty of action, adventure, and near death experiences (of course- Archer knows how to get a readers adrenaline pumping!). I am eagerly awaiting the release of the next in the series (hurry up September 8th!) I’ve got my eye on the next budding romance, Catherine and Cyclops. I thoroughly enjoy each supporting characters development and plot lines just as much as India and Matt and those two are ones I’m keeping my eye on over the course of the next few books for sure!
Overall a truly magical read with the perfect combination of magic, action, romance, and mystery!
Until next week friends!
