"Unhand me, you deranged, if lovely, female!"
Kiya Mortenson is not having a good day after being struck by lightning, for the second time, having her car breakdown in the middle of Oregon and losing the job she was covering for a friend. After meeting a friendly stranger, Kiya sets out to try to find work taking care of five rowdy pugs for an elderly Traveller woman. The Travellers are not very happy to have Kiya around but she needs the job to fix her car and get back to her life. The more time Kiya spends with the Travellers the more she learns about the supernatural world and her own past.
Peter Faa is a Traveller who was never accepted by his family and has spent his life as an outsider. Peter has devoted his life to being a member of The Watch, the supernatural cops, who are now investigating the Faa family for murder. Peter never expected to find an outsider living with his family and Kiya soon snags all of his attention. Peter knows someone in his family has committed murder but it will take Kiya's help to discover the actual killer.
I am so disappointed in this book for so many reasons. I liked the beginning which is told by Kiya in first person but then the book switches to Peter's point of view in second person. What???I've never come across a book told like this and found it very distracting, confusing and annoying. This continues through the rest of the book and almost made me DNF the whole thing.
Kiya is one of the most annoying characters that I have ever read. She is flighty, ditzy and comes off as an idiot. She spends most of her time talking about her ego, id and superego or saying very inappropriate things that are supposed to come off as witty.Read more ›
As always, KM has infused romance, humor and a bit of mystery into her story line and as always, has done it quite well. The story certainly garnered my immediate interest from the first few paragraphs and I quickly found myself absorbed in this new paranormal world keenly wanting to know what happened next.
Kiya Mortenson at first appears to be a mere mortal, whose quirkiness is happily appealing. her outlook on her life is refreshing and considering her propensity to lightening strikes, quite positive. Peter Faa is a model handsome, albeit serious, time traveler who stumbles across Kiya's path when he rescues her from climbing out the back window of her VW Bug, (Eloise). The two feel an instant and thankfully acknowledged, attraction to one another.
After Peter first meets Kiya, he tries to talk himself out of his attraction to her:
"I do not laugh," he told his reflection in the rear view mirror. It looked rather surprised, to be honest. He didn't like that, either, and added it to his list of annoyances. "I am a man who hunts down murderers, even if they are in his own family. I have killed an innocent man, and have had his animus bound to me forever because of my sins. I have nothing to laugh about. I scoff at laughter, and light, happy women with beautiful eyes and breasts and bellies. They are as nothing to me".
When Kiya finds herself with Eloise on her last exhaust-spewing fumes of life and a wallet quite empty of funds, she takes a job as a caregiver to a group of pugs. She also finds herself smack in the middle of the Faa family drama.Read more ›
We have a brand new novel from one of the most humorous writers today! Kiya is a unique woman. She starts out the book, with a broken down heap of a car sitting in a doctors office while waiting for her appointment because she has been struck by lightening AGAIN! Yep lightning DOES strike the same spot twice!
This book is a laugh a minute! I read this book long into the night, and woke my husband from a sound sleep when my laughing got out of control. Talk about a mess a minute! Peter and Kiya are just too much fun!
I have been a fan of Katie MacAlister's books for a while now, and this one is right up there with her other books. We still have the same type creatures as we find in all her other books. And the Watch are alive and well in this book.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who wishes a good laugh and who loves a bit of romance thrown in. And mystery, boy do we have a mystery! And as usual Katie MacAlister uses her humor and all sorts of twists and turns to keep us off our feet for the entire novel.
When I turned to the last page in my Kindle I was nearly crying because I wanted MORE!!!! Luckily I know her novella is due out in August with the next book in the series due out shortly thereafter! Thank God for that!
Well what are you waiting for? Go grab your own copy!!!!
