Review - My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shapeshifters by Rebekah L. Purdy

Source: Received an eBook from the author for an honest review.
Publisher: Astraea Press, LLC
Release Date: Already Released

Seeking Shifters was a fun story, and I really enjoyed reading it. I've always been a fan of watching shows about people investigating paranormal stuff, so this book constantly reminded me of that, and I absolutely loved it! The main character, Ima, has grown up investigating the paranormal with her dad, and after they finish the season finale of the show where they investigate Big Foot, Ima's dad moves them to Alaska, where they are investigating ghosts and...you can probably guest this one from the title...shapeshifters!

I thought the idea of this book was fabulous, and I think that other fans of paranormal investigations will agree with  me there. Even if you aren't a fan of those kinds of shows I think you'll enjoy this book. It was fun, funny and all-around enjoyable. The characters were fantastic! I loved Ima, she was a great main character, and I thought that she was hilarious. She might not have had many friends, but the friends that she did have were awesome. Her dog, Keetah, was pretty hilarious too. I think that dog had more personality than some people do. :P Matt and Brady, who both help out with investigations, and were a couple of the only friends Ima had were also pretty amazing characters. Brady didn't have a huge role, but he definitely stood out to me, and Matt was just all around awesome! He was definitely one of my favourite characters in this story! I also think that investigating the paranormal would be pretty fun with friends like that. And when she goes to Alaska she meets some other pretty crazy characters, and there's more Matt. :) Ima's dad was pretty awesome too, I think that only thing he had going against him was the fact that he named her Ima Blue Berry...which is hilarious, but let's be honest, a little cruel. :P

 My Dad's a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shapeshifters was an awesome story. It made me laugh, and it made me cry. I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves funny stories, especially those who also enjoy ones about the paranormal. I will warn you though that it does mention ghosts and other paranormal entities or beings so if you're super squeamish about that kind of stuff you might wanna read it when there's still daylight out. :)
