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!!!

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)

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.

Why don't I like this book? To be honest, the summary peaked my interest. I could imagine all sorts of interesting stories that could emerge from the heroine's ability to see and talk to those that had died under tragic circumstances. I decided to take a chance, and downloaded it.

The book held my interest until about a third of the way into it, when it took a sharp turn from believability and revealed a weird world where they fight with swords, that their ruler was going to be this stranger than strange unlovable (to me) child, and the hero (of sorts) was part of this world; This is where the heroine's brain turned to tofu, the hero's muscles and temperament turned into the type of man found in purple prose (bodice rippers), so my interest plummeted to zero.

I simply cannot stand it when otherwise smart, strong feminine protagonists become slavering idiots in the presence of a macho male running on overactive hormones and no brains. The other world created in the book was too unbelievable, to hard to accept. I did finish it but it was extremely difficult. Thank goodness it was not that long.

This was just a poorly written, silly fairy tale. I doubt I will continue with this author's books.
