Carpe Demon by Julie Kenner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
SUMMARY (source: Julie Kenner)
Carpools. Crabgrass. Creatures from the depths of hell. Suburbia has its problems too…
Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids
come along. Kate Connor, for instance, hasn’t hunted a demon in ages…
That must be why she missed the one wandering through the pet food aisle of the San Diablo Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, he managed to catch her attention an hour later—when he crashed into the Connor house, intent on killing her.
Now Kate has to clean up the mess in her kitchen, dispose of a dead demon, and pull together a dinner party that will get her husband elected to County Attorney—all without arousing her family’s suspicion. Worse yet, it seems the dead demon didn’t come alone. He was accompanied by a High Demon named Goramesh who, for some unknown reason, intends to kill off the entire population of San Diablo.
It’s time for Kate Connor to go back to work.
This book was fabulous! A perfect mixture of the stay-at-home mom and a retired demon hunter who comes out of retirement. It didn’t hurt that the little boy is 2-years-old (the same as my little boy). I could definitely relate to Kate Connor (minus the demon hunter part).
I already have the second book in the series on hold and waiting for me at the library. I can hardly wait.
