Title: Dead Spots
Series: Scarlett Bernard #1
Author: Melissa F. Olson
Rating: 

Scarlett Bernard knows about personal space: step within ten feet of her, and any supernatural spells or demonic forces are instantly defused—vampires and werewolves become human again, and witches can’t get out so much as a “hocus pocus.” This special skill makes her a null and very valuable to Los Angeles’s three most powerful magical communities, who utilize her ability to scrub crime scenes clean of all traces of the paranormal to keep humanity, and the LAPD, in the dark.

But one night Scarlett’s late arrival to a grisly murder scene reveals her agenda and ends with LAPD’s Jesse Cruz tracking her down to strike a deal: he’ll keep quiet about the undead underworld if she helps solve the case. Their pact doesn’t sit well with Dash, the city’s chief bloodsucker, who fears his whole vampire empire is at stake. And when clues start to point to Scarlett, it’ll take more than her unique powers to catch the real killer and clear her name.

Dead Spots begins with Scarlett, a supernatural null, is called to a crime scene, but gets caught by a cop trying to clean up the grisly murder. And it gets worse for her, when the vampire leader of the city gives her a certain amount of time to find the killer, or it's her head on platter. Scarlett hasn't much cared for what's going on, and now she has to use the help of a human cop to find out who the horrible killer is, and learn lots more dirty secrets about those she considered friends. 

This book was okay. I didn't really feel a major connection to any of the characters, and I sort of felt the ending was predictable in some ways. It was also a cliffhanger, and that's just annoying in this case. Other then that I did like the main character, and the plot line for the most part. It was a nice paranormal read to pass the time with.
