The good thing about this title is that it was a quick read with a promising set up. There were a couple of amusing moments, as well. However, the characters were flat, and the plot wasn't in-depth enough to support novel/novella length. It likely would have worked better as a short story with just a hint of the main character's romance with the cop instead of rushing through to a completely unbelievable pairing. I think the idea and writing have potential but need more work, particularly in the pacing of the story. ( )

Quick read, pleasant enough but not great. Wanted to read more about the characters and it seemed rushed. Willing to give book 2 a shot since sometimes you need a lot of set up. Kind of had my fill of the attractive-paranormal-woman-meets-sexy-male-detective/cop/authority figure-and-even-though-she's-in-danger-still-makes-foolish-decisions. ( )

A quick and amusing read - Paisley comes home early after being made redundant to find her policeman husband, Paul, making love to a woman in their shower. Years ago Paisley use to practice witchcraft with her best friend Lily, until Lily died a horrible death. Paisley decides to cast a revenge spell and turns her husband into a rat in the process as she doesn’t have the right ingredients. Unfortunately she has broken all sort of magical rules and has inadvertently opened a portal into the dark side of the magical world. As punishment for opening the portal the Dark Order rules that Paisley has to serve as a judge in the demonic version of a small claims court. So now she has to keep her kids safe from nightly visitations from cranky demons, get the right spell to turn her husband back to human, and dodge a police investigation into her missing husband, and keep away from the Dark Order as the Light Order has plans for her. The book is obviously set up as the first in the series as it ends on a cliffhanger. I would read more to see what happens ( )

So finally I got around to Kerri Nelson's story and I'm happy to say that this is a light read and the plot line is really ridiculous. The story s interesting: a woman who turned to magic to punish her cheating husband and accidentally turning him into a rat. Then she found herself playing civil judge to demon matters.

It's funny on some parts (husband turned rat) but the humor didn't translate entirely on the story. But I liked how the villain, the vampromancer Camden, got some page time and an inside scoop on his nefarious plotting put more weight on the twist of the story.

The rest of the characters are borderline absurd as well as the demons in Paisley's court. A dragon seeking fire insurance compensation, Werecats and Weredogs fighting over a top post to name a few.

This is a feel good book where justice was served and the guilty parties punished. I'm not sure if there's a sequel on the work but this was a fun read that helped pass the time. ( )

Paisley Barton was already having a bad day before she turned her husband into a rat. First, she was fired by her boss and then came home to find hubby in the shower with a naked blonde chick. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but this break-up may just unleash hell on Earth when Paisley casts a spell of vengeance against her philandering husband. After her spell casting inadvertently opens a portal between dimensions, Paisley finds her family home transformed into a nightly courtroom for settling disputes between demons of the underworld and she's the judge! If that's not enough, she's got to deal with a charming, ancient demon named Camden who wants to be her personal bodyguard while trying to explain her husband's sudden, mysterious disappearance to sexy police Detective Dalton Briggs. But Paisley will show them all that an everyday working mom is better equipped than most to deal with the mystical mayhem...and with a tempting demon hottie and a flirtatious young detective vying for her affection, she soon learns that being single again isn't so bad after all.
