(Book) California Demon by Julie Kenner

92

The subtitle of this book is “The Secret Life of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom”.

Okay, I don’t think I’ve seen Kate yet go to a soccer game, but that’s semantics. Whatever you envision from that subtitle is exactly what you get. It’s funny. There are demons involved. It’s chick-list paranormal humor infused fun. The author’s style is very witty and I found myself several times chuckling out loud.

The best part is Kate. I absolutely adore this character and I loved getting to know her even more in this (which is the 2nd book in a series). She has been developed so well, I feel like I’m running errands with her one minute and the next stabbing some bad guy through the eye with an ice pick.

Oh, just read them. It’s not high-brow literature, people. It’s better. It’s an escape. It’s fun. Just do it 🙂

Synopsis

Welcome to San Diablo. The perfect place to raise a couple of kids. And a lot of Hell.

What’s a mother to do, when there are only so many hours in the day, and the fate of the world is in her hands?

Kate Connor was a retired demon hunter. Now, after fourteen years busting her tail as a suburban housewife, raising two kids, and supporting her husband’s political ambitions, she’s rejoined the workforce — and except for a few minions of evil, no one has a clue. She tries hard to keep her home and work lives separate — a good idea when your job involves random slaughter.

Between fending off demon attacks, trying to figure out why the mysterious new teacher at the high school seems so strangely familiar, and keeping a watchful eye on her daughter’s growing infatuation with a surfer dude, Kate is the busiest — and most dangerous– soccer mom on the block…
