There is not one part of this book that you don't already know from reading the description. It is Buffy bitching about wanting a normal life at her very whiniest. I regret the time wasted reading it. ( )

Decent quick read. It was interesting to see how the main character attempts to segregate her current life with her past & present demon hunting. Try as she might, the demon hunting encroachment interfering in her personal life will be a losing battle as the series moves forward I bet. Good character development and a strong plot and storyline. The marital relationship conversations could be improved upon but overall a good 1st in series book. Also had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook. The narrator did a great job with giving each character their own voice - only a couple of mess ups when the dialogue between characters was short. ( )

Not badly written but not my thing and did not hold my interest. Not starring because do not want to slam what other readers might find a perfectly good read; but, the demon/paranormal portion very miniscule.

So basically a soccer mom tale including riding along with main character on stuff like picking up milk, finding a daycare, dealing with merged family. Not sure why another reviewer called it "romantic comedy" as current husband a bit on the cardboard side and except for one morning encounter that was apparently so out of the norm for their romance she started suspecting him--nothing really romantic. I am kinda suspicious that at one time was a regular fiction book that added some paranormal stuff to get published. And if it wanted to be romance or comedy or chick-lit or women's fiction -- it just should have. At my advanced middle age, a bit hard to accept that a woman who retired at least 15 years ago and never worked out since was immediately back in shape.

Dealing with teenagers and toddlers rang true; unfortunately, seen enough in real life to not be interested in reading so much of it in a fiction book I picked it up thinking that while likely silly would have some paranormal, comedy, romance type of plots that would hold up to being in a series I was hearing so much about. *ack* who wants to read carpool scheduling difficulties?
