About the Author

Linda Welch was born in Hampshire, England. After moving to the USA, she lived in Idaho, California and New Mexico before settling in Utah. She now lives in a mountain valley, more or less halfway up the mountainside, with her husband and Scottish terrier. Unlike Tiff Banks, the heroine of Linda's Whispering series of paranormal mysteries, she is not tall and white-haired, and does not see demons. What she does see are moose, deer, raccoon, skunk, wild turkey, a huge bird population and a ridiculous amount of snow. When not writing and depending on the season, she is usually tending to her Scottie, filling the bird feeders, futilely attacking the weeds in her garden or shoveling out after a snowstorm. Look for the sequel to Along Came a Demon:The Demon Hunters.

This is a solidly constructed, well written, nicely executed story. It's not every long, but it's the right length for the introduction of these 2 characters who will have to somehow come to an accommodation with each other.

One's a human woman with a talent (that isn't psychic) for seeing and speaking with the ghosts of murder victims. The other is a man from another dimension whose species seems awfully much like demons, maybe crossed with vampires, and he's spent a career as a cop. He now considers himself a permanent resident of our dimension.

They are going to be in each others life, and that is not going to be easy!

This volume contains a novella that is complete in itself, and a preview of the next installment. This is a good place to start.

Ok, I thought well I will give it a try. I read paranormal and mystery all the time. This book combined the 2 with a excellence such as authors like Charlaine Harris and MaryJanice Davidson.

I started reading it and couldn't put it down. Good thing you can't see my droopy eyes and dirty house......lol

The characters are well developed and interesting. You want to know more about them. You can't stand that the book ends!!

This book had a great plot and it was NOT one of those where you know what was going to happen!

I hope that Linda will continue to bless me with her books to review! I look forward to the rest of this series!!!

In the last year or two I've probably read more books with some kind of paranormal twist than I had all the remaining years of my life combined. I've been amazed to discover the number of ways authors have to give a novel a paranormal twist. "Along Came a Demon is among my favorites." I was happy discovering they aren't all glittery vampires.

As I evaluate the reasons "Along Came a Demon" was an enjoyable read for me several things come to mind. Part of it is the mystery portion. Ignore the paranormal part and this book is like a police procedural or private investigator mystery, which are genres I've read and enjoyed for years. Unlike the typical paranormal book, Tiff's skills and the existence of paranormal creatures aren't treated as if they are normal. Tiff assumes most people wouldn't acknowledge or accept her talents or paranormal beings exist, so she hides the true nature of her abilities and the existence of the paranormal. This adds a different twist to the story. Hiding certain things like that, most notably two "dead" people who reside in Tiff's house, adds plenty of humor to the book.

I have been an avid mystery fan for much of my life. I read before going to sleep every night and the books that usually make up that reading material are mysteries of the cozy type. Agatha Christie, P D James, Elizabeth Peters, Ngaio Marsh, Sara Paretsky, Martha Grimes, and the list goes on. When I saw that Linda Welch had requested a review for her psi-fi mystery, Along Came A Demon, I leapt at the chance to read and review it. I was not disappointed.

Tiff Banks, nicknamed the Ice Queen by the Clarion police department for her tall stature and ice blonde hair, works as a consultant for the police in murder cases. She has told them that she is a psychic, but in actuality, she sees dead people as flesh and blood and they whisper to her. Tiff, who hates to be called Tiffany because of the image that projects, was orphaned as a baby, grew up in a variety of foster homes, and always felt she was a little different than everyone else. Happier being by herself than with a group of people, Tiff left Utah as soon as she was able and went from place to place and job to job. Until, after landing in San Francisco, boom, out of nowhere she started seeing and being able to talk to dead people. She returned to Utah to the small town of Clarion in the hopes that there wouldn't be too many murdered people trying to get her attention. Unfortunately for her, she moved into a house where there were two ghosts in residence, as well as two who lived on her street. So much for trying to get away from them.

Along Came A Demon starts with Tiff being told by Jack and Mel, her ghost couple, that there is a naked woman dripping on her front grass. Tiff is cranky that she has to deal with a dead person before she can even get her morning coffee

"A naked wet woman in the garden.

I was so interested after reading the premise of this book, but the characters really bugged me. First off, our heroine bills herself as very cautious and slow-to-trust when it comes to people and especially when it comes to "demons" (which we learn later are...something else which is never explained) Not five minutes after meeting the male lead, discovering he is a "demon", running away, and him attempting to break into her house-she totally trusts him. Just like that. This is after she is attacked by other "demons" and thinks this guy is also going to kill her. There were so many opportunities for her to be a strong person, or at least ask understandable questions of the person who knows everything about the murder case she is working on, (and the group of people who are trying to kill her) but she never does! Instead she is strung along, and isn't even upset when it turns out that all of her issues could have been solved in a ten minute period. Speaking of her problems...I was really disturbed by the little boy. There is just something wrong with that child. I understand that he does not have a normal background, but as none of the other different/odd people we meet (who are "good") behave like soon-to-be-psychopaths, I was put off by how no one in the book found his behavior to be a red flag. There were a few other things that put me off of this book, but I don't want to rant for too long. The take away of it all was that I wanted a strong female lead, and all I got was a girl who instantly trusted a hot stranger and let him do whatever he wanted for no reason. (Oh, that's right, he's hot)
