Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.
You are going to love this one! Jessie Darker is one fast talking, sarcastic, tough paranormal butt kicking heroine. She has an almost constant inner dialogue going on that is smart and funny, commenting on what she sees, does, hears, until you get to know her inside and out. She's got a great relationship with her mother. She knows her mother's looks and how to diffuse her anger. And her mother can read Jessie like a book. Though I am nothing like Jessie, I could definitely identify with her and loved her opinions about life and high school boys and love. She is a character I am going to love to learn more about!
This is a paranormal book, a hard thing to find with all the contemporaries flooding the market these days. It's a breath of fresh air to read something fun and light with a new mythology-demons. I haven't read many demon books so I don't have a lot of built up knowledge about the world. I thought it was pretty easy to follow with a little bit of a twist at the end that made it really interesting.
I enjoyed the novel, it's light and entertaining. No heavy stuff, lots of laughs, crazy good metaphors. Jus Accardo's writing is lean without being dry. The characters that we care about for this story are developed just enough that we understand them and want to stick around to read more about them.
Highly recommended for lover's of YA Paranormal with romance.
