Romancing the Null
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
There are three kinds of lies. Lies the fates spin as half truths. Lies of destined love. And statistics.
As a fateless, Kate Hale is immune to the first two, but the third kind of lie is her profession. After spending years as an actuary for the Traffic Department, Kate is promoted to Accidental Death Predictions. It’s all she’s worked toward, and her career is finally on track. But when an oracle delivers an impossible death prediction and insists on her help to solve the case, she might lose any chance of impressing the brass.
Her only hope comes in the form of the police liaison assigned to her department, latent werewolf Ian Becker. Becker can grant her the clearance to find answers, but he’s a wild card with a shady past who doesn’t play well with others.
Every prediction has a loophole, but if Kate can’t solve the case before the crime is fated to occur she won’t just lose her job–she’ll have the blood of an oracle on her hands.
Romancing the Null is the first book in an exciting new urban fantasy romance series. Fans of Mercy Thompson, Charley Davidson, or The Dresden Files will likely enjoy this series.

Characters are well written. I rooted for them but didn't really love this fantasy world. That's just my opinion for what it's worth.
Nerdy and loving it
Gower builds a whole new world, not too different from our own, but filled with magic. She reveals it and our heroine's plot subtly. Couldn't get enough.
Fun, easy read with a little mystery
I really enjoyed this book. At times it was a little bit predictable, but most of them of this genre are. You have the quirky unsure of herself nerd girl, handsome cop with a chip on his shoulder, oracles, descendants of weres, and lives in peril. It's good enough that I think I'll buy book two and enjoy, but not so good that I HAVE to buy it.
