So over the weekend, I organized my ereader app to show books in alphabetical order. I noticed that the first few were duds, and I had read them years ago. The next to read was a book written by someone I had never heard of… which is the genius of this challenge : finding books you downloaded for free, and forgot.
The Accidental Demon Slayer
By: Angie Fox
(Demon Slayer #1)
Lizzie Brown is about to turn 30, when she is contacted by her biological grandmother. Looking forward to spending a quiet afternoon, getting to know about where she came from, Lizzie is thrown off guard, when a Harley shows up and a wild woman locks her in the bathroom. Soon Lizzie’s world is thrown upside down, as she learns that she is a demon slayer and her grandmother’s coven is on the run. Lizzie just wants to save her grandmother, so her and her dog can get back to normal life. Will Lizzie be able to defeat the demon, or will she be forever on the run, as well?
This was a surprisingly cute book. It had me chuckling out loud. The dog was by far my favorite character, of course. The author layered each part of the story well, and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
By: Colleen Gleason Format: Paperback Read: August 2014
Diana Iverson has it all, a blossoming malpractice firm and a seemingly perfect fiancé, when she receives news of her estranged aunt’s sudden passing. Diana inherits her aunt’s old home and decides to take a last minute trip up to Maine. While there, she discovers her aunt’s tarot cards which keep popping up at strange times, along with a handsome neighbor and his big, black lab. However, when strange incidents keep happening and several sabotage attempts on the house and her car, Diana begins to suspect her aunt’s death wasn’t from natural causes, but she may be putting her own life at risk.
Colleen Gleason’s mystical book is descriptive and will have readers feeling as though they are living the story. This book is about learning to conquer old insecurities and trusting in your intuition, in order to be open to trusting others. The second half of the book picks up the pace and is packed full of suspense. Though at times the storyline can be predictable, the ending contains a major twist that will leave readers shocked and speechless.
