Stacy Justice is looking forward to a lazy summer of hot dogs and beer; swims in the lake with her Great Dane, Thor; and hanging with her rekindled old flame, Chance. But when she gets a creepy anonymous call hinting that her father's "accidental" death fourteen years ago was actually a murder, she's too unsettled to relax. Stacy has blamed herself for his death all along--in fact, it's the reason she's fought so hard against being a witch. But who'd want to kill an innocent small-time newspaperman?
That's the question on Stacy's mind when she casts a spell that goes horribly wrong. And between the white tiger that keeps appearing out of thin air, the body in the lake, the feisty razor-toothed Chihuahua, and the gun-toting maniac, she suddenly has her hands full once again. But solving the mystery of her father's death is Stacy's number-one priority...and avenging it, if necessary, is a very close second.
Continuing the thrilling Stacy Justice saga, Tiger's Eye drives the reluctant witch deeper into the mysteries of her family's past...and the darker regions of her soul.

Annino’s third paranormal romantic crime novel featuring Illinois reporter Stacy Justice (after 2011’s Bloodstone) should please fans of the series, but newcomers may be less satisfied. In a recap of the previous book’s cliffhanger ending, an anonymous caller tells Stacy, who was reared by witches, that he “has the tapes,” before claiming that her father died of foul play, rather than an accident as she’d always believed. The tension created by this prologue, however, is allowed to dissipate when the first chapter delays showing Stacy’s immediate response, instead catching up with her playing in a softball game as part of her hometown’s Founder’s Day celebrations. Given that Stacy has only just learned that she’s inherited the role of “Seeker of Justice” from Druid ancestors, her initial nonchalance about exacting revenge on whoever murdered her father is surprising, coming across as an uncomfortable mix of whimsy and Hamlet.
