Great title, OK book

What a clever title for a book about a shapeshifter (werepanther) who falls in love. And Carlos Panterra the shifter was an interesting character, strong on the dark, mysterious nature if a little short on communication ability at times. He meets his foil in Caitlyn Whelan, sister of Shanna, the heroine of the first book in this series (How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire). Caitlyn knows that Carlos is the man for her, but he needs a werepanther--not a mortal--so resists his feelings.

Kerrelyn Sparksí writing has felt rather samey to this reader over the last few books. Eat Prey Love is a little different which improved it for me, although we still have too large a cast of characters (OK if youíve read the other books, which I have, but still confusing) and repetitive events (people learning about vampires/shifters and having everything explained to them). What I like about this book is that some of it takes place in the jungle of South America, with a bit of a nod to the Indiana Jones films.

This series is always an easy read, and there are moments of amusement within the writing. However, itís getting just a little stale now, and the huge cast of characters rather blurs the readerís focus. We donít really get to know Carlos nor Caitlyn that well; they are appealing and interesting, and I would have liked to know more of their thoughts. Caitlynís supernatural language acquisition ability would be really handy to have, though!
