Melina Markowitz, messenger for the underworld, delivers the goods for the supernatural beings in our midst—no questions asked. It’s more than a job; it’s a mission. Safety be damned.
Melina’s missing friend, Paul, could just be taking a little werewolf “me time,” but her investigation yields something more sinister. Suspicions first fall on Paul’s wolf-pack rival. But that wouldn’t explain the sudden windstorms rattling Melina’s nerves—or the ominous, shrieking crows that keep appearing.
The clues lead Melina to a mermaid, a damaged and possibly deranged police officer and patterns for Norwegian doilies—finally bringing her to the realization that she may be dealing with the most powerful enemy she has ever faced.
Melina’s friend, Paul has disappeared. Melina is trying to figure out what happened to Paul. Clues to Paul’s disappearance lead Melina to a mermaid. Also, Melina’s life takes a huge turn when she receives some news that will change her relationship with her boyfriend, Ted.
Dead Letter Day is the third book in the Messenger series. I enjoy this series but I would suggest you start with book one, Don’t Kill the Messenger. These books, while they could be read as standalone novels you will miss some of the character development and relationships if you don’t read these books in chronological order.
I did not realize how much I missed Melina until I started reading this book. She and her boyfriend, Ted make a cute couple. I have to say I think werewolves make better boyfriends than vampires… Sorry, Edward. While I did enjoy reading about Melina and her relationship with Ted, I felt like this took over most of the story. It took a long time for Melina to figure out what happened to her friend, Paul. I felt most of the story did not come together until the last third of the book and then it was quick. Still a good read nonetheless.
