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.
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!!!
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

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.
