Jane Doe, our nineteen year old weredeer lead character is at it again. She can’t help but stumble into trouble. It seems wherever she goes, she finds trouble. This time, while out on a picnic with her best friend and werewolf, Emma, they are met with two monster hunters. Then stumble upon a mass grave of baby skeletons.

The villain even has two different references that I always thought about when he was mentioned. Dr Jim Jones. There are times when they talk about Jim Jones, and yes, he is a cult leader too, which always made me think of Jonestown. Then other times, he’s called Dr. Jones, which makes me think of Indiana, which this Dr Jones really doesn’t match in my eyes.

So, Jane has to battle another baddie with a little help from her friends. Some hard choices have to be made by many. Jane’s gun continues to be snarky. We also learn more about the gun’s history.

Oh, should I mention Jane’s relationship issues? There is this hot FBI agent, Alex, who she has had a bit of a long distance thing going on with for a while. Then there is Lucien, mob boss who own a nightclub with a portal to hell. Oh, and he’s Alex’s adopted brother, Lucien being the one adopted into the family. Emma also has a crush on Jane. Jane is bisexual, but is a little creeped out about her best friend having a crush on her. There is just a lot going on here and I wish there was less. I think we’ve made some progress on this, but I’m not 100% sure yet.

This is a humorous mystery that will be enjoyed by urban fantasy and cozy mystery fans alike. While, I don’t think there are quite as many deer puns (evidently, that is something that weredeer just love, puns) in this book as the previous one, there are still plenty to keep you chuckling. There are also more than plenty pop culture references to make everyone happy.

I continue to enjoy the humor that these two authors bring to this series. I can’t wait to read more to see what’s next in store for Jane Doe and the gang.

An American Weredeer in Michigan Audiobook Narration

4 Hearts

I continue to enjoy Arielle DeLisle’s narration of this series. Her voice sounds a bit young, but since Jane is only nineteen, I’m okay with it. I like the voices she chooses for most of the characters. I don’t mind the men’s voices, which are pretty masculine when compared to Jane’s young voice. I like the women’s voices. I think she does a great job bringing out the humor in this series.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I will need to check this one out… just because! haha!

    • This has been a fun series. I really enjoy this author. He as a fun supervillain series too.

  2. Oh humor and mystery? what a great mix! It looks like a fun one and it was a new one to me

  3. I like that this is a fun mystery and the whole were deer thing cracks me up. I am not thrilled about the romance, it sounds messy.

    • The weredeer things is great. There is also a thing with weredeer and puns. So, if you love puns, this is a series for you. 😀

  4. I wonder if I would enjoy these? Hmmm, I wonder

    • They’re pretty funny. Lots of puns and pop culture references.

  5. Oh man, that lovely like is complicated. I do think it sounds quirky and fun with a Dr. Jim Jones thing, too.

    • That should read ‘love life’. Autocorrect, grr.

  6. How have I not heard of this series? It sounds like they are fun reads-especially with the deer puns. I think I am with you about the romance. It’s like enough already. I may have dig up the first one. Thanks Melanie.

    • Oh, and I love The Jane Doe name!

      • Isn’t that great!? The deer puns are really fun and so many great pop culture references.

  7. Oh this needs to go on my list! Great review I love that it blends both genres.

    • This is a really fun series. Deer puns, humor, mystery, snarky characters. What’s not to love? 🙂

  8. I listened to the first book from this series and did enjoy it. I am a little disappointed to learn that Jane’s romantic life is even more complicated in this book. I do hope to get to this one at some point. Great review!

    • I’m not a fan of love triangles, but since the romance isn’t a large part of this series, I’m okay with it. I do hope it gets resolved soon.

  9. This sounds like a lot of fun, Melanie. Emma sure does seem to have a lot going on – lucky she has time to solve mysteries. 😉 And her gun is snarky? Yeah, I kinda need to read this. LOL

    • This series is so much fun. Tons of snark. I hope you get a chance to try it one day.
