A spin-off of the popular Cindy Eller series.

The first book in the Goldie Locke and the Were Bears series.

It's difficult to be taken seriously when you are a member of the Magical community and saddled with the unfortunate name 'Goldie Locke'. It certainly doesn't help if you are also about five feet tall, blond, and most commonly described as 'cute.'. What was a girl to do?

Become one of the most dreaded Magical environmental lawyers of all time?

Goldie isn't there yet, but she's well on her way when a case drags her into uncharted territory-- working with Ordinary officials to figure out why 'unusual' remains are being discovered all around New England.

With her hands full and a new dragon on the way, Goldie's hunches about this case may prove to be all-too true-- this stuff is bad business!

Opening Line  
Fred sat mesmerized by the egg. 
"Shoo," I told him. "The last thing we need is a dragon imprinted on a dead chicken. You'll mess up his psyche big time"

Goldie works for the Baehrs brothers who need her to find out who is killing magical creatures before it's too late. With all the magical creatures missing and bodies turning up, she's the lucky winner of a dragon egg. As if hunting down a kill and hatching a dragon isn't enough to keep Goldie busy she's also been partnered with an ordinary human who knows nothing about the magical world. 

Goldie has her hands full but it's important to stop whoever is hurting the magic creatures and when she finds a fairy's body among the carnage it's clear that he's hunting more than just creatures. It's while she's with Donavon her ordinary that things spiral out of control forcing her to use her magic to save his life as well as revealing herself. Now she's the one being hunted by a killer. Will she be able to stop him before he can hurt any of her pets? At what cost. 

I love Goldie she's the adorable witch who's out to save the magical creatures at any cost even risking her own life. I'm not sure how I feel about Kodi as he's her ex with lots of potentials but he has his own issues. I also like Donavon he accepts learning that there is more than just the human world and I hope to see more of him. 

I've had this one on my kindle for a while but never seemed to find the time till now. Baehrly Breathing is a fast paced action packed whirlwind story that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I love the concept of a magical world living hidden from the humans with illusion spells that keep it hidden. I mean how many books have a tiny unicorn named Dumb Butt in them or a pink tiny mastodon who likes to snuggle. The characters are fun, easy to connect with and you can't help loving Goldie. The author has a beautiful writing style that's easy to get lost in Goldie's story and hard to put down as I needed to know how it would end. I can't wait to dive right into the next one. I highly recommend for a quick light read checking her out.
