About The Book

An ex-cop and a psychic on the mend find their safe haven threatened by vandalism, arson, and the shadow of their dangerous past.

After overusing his Talent till he almost died, Brian wants nothing more than a quiet job on the farm, with Nick to come home to. He’s trying to start a new life, despite bad dreams he can’t shake, vandalism close to home, and his sister’s problematic baby on the way.

Nick gave up the police force and moved to North Carolina to be with Brian, and he doesn’t regret it. But he’s at loose ends, with no real work, the lurking specter of Brian’s brother Damon hanging around, and a worry in the pit of his stomach that Damon’s old enemies might still be after Brian. Nick’s keeping his eyes open and his gun loaded.

The Review

You should read “Tracefinder” in order because “Choices” is the final novel in the series (so far), and it picks up right where the second novel “Changes” leaves off.

Nick is on his way to North Carolina to be with Brian. Brian has made a simple life for himself, working on a pig farm for Yasmin Wydell, (Doc) Zanders mother. He still has problems with dyslexia and managing his psychic ability. But he strives to make life easier for himself.

After the last chaotic situation Damon created, their sister Lori is living in the same area and about to give brith with a baby that everyone thinks is Marston’s. Brian knows a secret, and he’s very uneasy about the baby. 

But the tables have turned where Nick is concerned. He’s on his way with Charlie to North Carolina, and to Brian and get their life back together.  He’s no longer on the police force and needs to find a job.  Will he be able to stay away from law enforcement?  

There’s always the danger hanging over their heads of Damon coming back and ruining the peace that Nick and Brian need to have a stable relationship.

“Tracefinder: Choices” is the final installment in this ever complicated series from Kaje Harper.  I focused on Nick and Brian when it came to reviewing this series because there are so many troubled characters with deep-seated issues that it’s impossible to analyze each one.   As for Nick and Brian, all of their struggles, hurts and a solid love have gradually paid off.   

If Kaje Harper ever decides to do another “Tracefinder” book, I would like to see something good happen for Charlie, and maybe the baby can be part of it.  I’m not impressed with Lori at all – maybe she’ll give the baby to Charlie. Lori has too many traits like Damon but she’s not really sharp enough to make solid decisions, and she’s greedy too.

As for Damon, there seems to be a connection between him and (Doc) Zander, but Damon is such a danger to everyone. Even though he tries to show a bit of good, it all leads too danger.

I highly recommend this powerfully emotional series.  You should read all three novels be in order:  “Contact”, “Changes”, and “Choices”.  This series was a major page-turner for me, filled with psychological drama, and I was highly entertained. Kaje Harper did an outstanding job with each and every novel in the series.

The Reviewer

Hi, I’m Maryann, I started life in New York, moved to New Hampshire and in 1965 uprooted again to Sacramento, California.  Once I retired I moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in 2011 and just moved back to Sacramento in March of 2018.  My son, his wife and step-daughter flew out to Florida and we road tripped back so they got to see sights they have never seen.  New Orleans and the Grand Canyon were the highlights. Now I am back on the west coast again to stay! From a young age Ialways liked to read.

I remember going to the library and reading the “Doctor Dolittle” books by Hugh Lofting. Much later on became a big fan of the classics, Edgar Alan Poe, Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker and as time went by Agatha Christie, Ray Bradbury and Stephen Kingand many other authors.

My first M/M shifter book I read was written by Jan Irving the “Uncommon Cowboys” series from 2012.  She was the first author I ever contacted and sent an email to letting her know how much I liked this series.  Sometime along the way I read “Zero to the Bone”by Jane Seville, I think just about everyone has read this book! 

As it stands right now I’m really into mysteries, grit, gore and “triggers” don’t bother me. But if a blurb piques my interest I will read the book.

My kindle collection eclectic and over three thousand books and my Audible collection is slowly growing.  I have both the kindle and audible apps on my ipod, ipads, and MAC. So there is never an excuse not to be listening or reading.

I joined Goodreads around 2012 and started posting reviews.  One day a wonderful lady, Lisa Horan of The Novel Approach, sent me an email to see if I wanted to join her review group.  Joining her site was such an eye opener.  I got introduce to so many new authors that write for the LGBTQ genre. Needless to say, it was heart breaking when it ended.

But I found a really great site, QRI and it’s right here in Sacramento. Last year at QSAC I actually got to meet Scott Coatsworth, Amy Lane and Jeff Adams.
