Cleaning Up Evil

Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids come along. Kate Connor, for instance, hasn't hunted a demon in ages...

That must be why she missed the one wandering through the pet food aisle of the San Diablo Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, he managed to catch her attention an hour later-when he crashed into the Connor house, intent on killing her.

Now Kate has to clean up the mess in her kitchen, dispose of a dead demon, and pull together a dinner party that will get her husband elected to County Attorney-all without arousing her family's suspicion. Worse yet, it seems the dead demon didn't come alone...

It's time for Kate Connor to go back to work.

I had never even heard of Julie Kenner’s demon-hunting soccer mom series but one of my book groups was reading it a couple of months ago and I recently was able to find the first book in the series called Carpe Demon and it was really great! There was action, humor, and also quite a few pop culture references (mostly Harry Potter).

I love paranormal’s that are set in our world. It’s so fun to see how the characters react and how they try to save the world without having to go to jail or an insane asylum. They’re world probably wouldn’t exist without them but try telling that to a cop or an attorney!

I thought Kate was such an interesting character! I’ve always been crazy about supernaturals (mainly vampires) on TV, movies, and in books but I also really like the people who kick the bad ones’ butt for a living (even better if it’s a woman). This is the first time I’ve heard of the person (think Buffy but not really the same personality) having a family though. I actually don’t have children myself but I guess it can’t be too much fun when you’re trying to battle evil and be a full-time mom too!
