I started this book and literally couldn’t put it down. It was fun and quirky and went from one monster to several. Zoey, the main character, goes from clueless to actually understanding and controlling her gift while dealing with a monster who scared her as a child, a collector of souls and an incubus that is killing her friends. The story as well as the world builds on itself naturally and effortlessly. I found this light-hearted story to be highly entertaining and one that I can see anyone from a teen to a senior reading and enjoying.
Zoey only thought that her biggest problem was her ex wanting her money until she came into her kitchen to find a monster reading her paper while baking muffins. Suddenly, a whole new reality is revealed and Zoey has to learn to deal with creatures she thought only existed in someone’s imagination. Yet, through all the chaos, she learns about her mother who disappeared when she was a child, finds a guy she’s interested in and has to dispatch a incubus before he kills someone else.
Though not extremely long, just over 200 pages, this story has a big impact and I can’t wait to read more about Zoey and her monsters!
I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn't imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I'd seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no?
After all, I've always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain. Don't get me wrong, I like helping people—and non-people. But this ability has turned me into a gourmet feast for an incubus, a demon that feeds off emotional energy. Now, brides are dropping dead all over town, and my home has become a safe house for the supernatural. I must learn to focus my powers and defeat the demon before he snacks on another innocent woman and comes looking for the main course...
