From the Inside Flap

"Am I just imagining something between us?"

Sammy's voice was low, his fingers warmly persuasive. He wore heavy silver rings, a thumb ring and two others.

"I'd like to get to know you better, Nicki." He squeezed my hand, not letting me pull away. "I'd like to make love to you."

My body throbbed, bringing a surge of guilt along with a surge of juices.

What was it about this guy that made him so sexy?

The old Nicki would've jumped his bones in a heartbeat and worried about guilt and explanations later.

Those blue eyes were incredible, and he smelled like forbidden fruit - juicy, and just within reach. I could stretch out my hand...

More About the Author

A Southern girl with an overactive imagination, Terri Garey writes award-winning and critically-acclaimed urban fantasy. Her novels have been described as "smoldering" by Publishers Weekly, and "sultry and upbeat" by Library Journal. Even though she's a big scaredy-cat who can't watch horror movies or visit haunted houses, she loves moonlit graveyards, moss-covered headstones and the idea that life goes on even after it's over. You can visit her on the web, friend her on Facebook and occasionally find her on Twitter.

Nicki Styx is back, bigger, bolder & better than ever, in the sequel to Dead Girls are Easy which comes out on June 24, 2008. You meet Nicki & her band of merry misfits in Dead Girls; in A Match Made in Hell, you meet more of Nicki's family & you learn about her birth mother & the circumstances surrounding her adoption & the reason why she was split from her twin sister. Yes, we can all quote Darth Vader, now...."So, you have a twin sister."
Nicki is just as off-beat & saucy in this book as she was in Dead Girls. However, Ms. Garey gives us a keener sense of who Nick is, & how she is dealing with her abilities to commune with the dead. If anything, Nicki is more "real" in this story, & therefore the reader gets pulled into this story right out of the gate. You get a sense of the tale in store for you with the first line, "Too many freaks, not enough circuses." We gain a better insight into Nicki's mind set & continuing struggle to make sense of her life, within the frame work of her new abilities. One of the best aspects of this would be seeing Nicki as a fully formed person, who is at times understanding, grumpy, humorous, cantankerous, stubborn, loyal, sexy & very, very human. At the end of the day, I found myself wishing Nicki really did run a funky vintage clothing shop around the corner, where I could spend too much money on fine fashions & grab a beer with her after the store closed for the night.
All of the core cast from the first book return in this romp through the ghost world. However, the addition to the group who is most interesting would have to be Kelly, Nicki's long lost twin sister. And just to make things interesting, Kelly is the estranged wife of Nicki's boyfriend, Dr. Joe. She returns to Georgia to finalize her "unfinished business" & meet her sister, Nicki.

Nicki Styx enjoyed her life where her worries were keeping up with fashion, her boyfriend and her vintage clothes store. Now she still worries about them, but to quote a movie - she sees dead people. This time Nicki is lead to an accident where one woman is severely injured. The woman turns out to be not only her boyfriend Joe's soon to be ex but also Nicki's twin.

This leads Nicki to discover that she has family she never knew existed and a spooky old house. While trying to deal with the unexpected entrance of her twin sister and more spirits, Nicki learns that the Devil himself has decided he wants her too. Nicki, her boyfriend Joe, her best friend Evan and his partner Butch, all make the journey to discover Nicki's past and of course to defeat the Devil.

A Match Made in Hell pits Nicki against the Devil himself. This time Nicki, Joe and friends not only have to deal with the family Nicki didn't know she had but also the Devil and some of his friends. Joe has told Nicki that he was divorcing his wife who left him, but neither expected her to turn up injured or to be Nicki's twin. The antics and mishaps that Nicki and Joe have to deal with had me enjoying a tale that could have been dark but instead was light and humorous. A Match Made in Hell reminded me of that favorite movie you put in when you want something fun and feel good. Of course Nicki and Joe made it through all the challenges thrown at them and were still together and a bit stronger for them. Along with Evan and Butch who I just had to mention.

A Match Made in Hell is the perfect book for people who want a book that shows the lighter side of paranormal. While this is the second story in the series, I felt it could be read as a stand-alone. However, if you fall for Nicki and company then you might just want to go back and read the other.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After loving "Dead Girls Are Easy", I eagerly awaited this follow up. Here Nicki meets her twin sister Kelly for the first time. Kelly is Nicki's boyfriend Joe's ex-wife, so relations are tense for the sisters from the get-go. In this story, Nicki meets not only her twin sister, but the birth mother who gave them all up and some other family members. Things aren't what they seem, and the ghosts show up routinely. Another new character makes an appearance and threatens to take away everything Nicki ever held dear. It also make her "do unto others" mentally reach shaky ground. The mysteries are a good one, the ghostly spirits enjoyable, even the rotten ones. The writing here is wonderful and the book unravels at a good pace. The follow through may actually have been more entertaining than the first volume. I am taking off one star because of an odd plot twist, that really didn't work for me at the end. Can't say more without giving something away. But still this was a fabulous book and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

this book is much better written than the first one,and Garey really took some time with the plotting. Nicki is a more fully formed character, the other people in the story seem to lack a little substance (no pun intended.) Dr. Joe is mostly a sex machine, Kelly didn't start to have a personality until almost the end of the book, and the other characters are little more than stereotypes. While I liked this better than the first, Garey still has a ways to go before I would consider her a five star author - but if she keeps trying, I'll keep reading!
