Demon Hunting in the Deep South by Lexi George
Evie really didn't like Meredith and it didn't get any better when she called her a slut and accused Evie of sleeping with her husband. If that wasn't bad enough, then she finds Meredith stabbed to death on her desk. And the cops think she did it...
Kensington Brava sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you). The book has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.
Stories about demons always grab my eye. I had already read Demon Hunting in Dixie and was looking forward to getting back to Evie and seeing how her story worked out.
Ms. George writes a good story. There is laughter, love, and demons galore. Good (or almost good) demons, bad demons, local troublemakers, and lots of food are included in the story line up.
Evie is a big girl and has heard nasty insults from the locals for years; thunder thighs and worse insults about her butt. So how can this protective demon hanging around her think she was underweight? Or pretty? Maybe he's just lying to get into her pants.
There is evil in this town. The fact that Meredith discovered it is how she ended up dead. The problem is that Meredith's ghost can't remember who killed her. Evie has to find out to keep herself out of jail.
There is a plenty of action, some good lovin', and a big fight between good and evil. This tale will keep you reading. Why not give it a try? Reading the first book will help fill in some blanks for you, but it's not necessary. If you like a good fantasy read and demons, get both. I really enjoyed both stories.
If you would like the ARC I read, leave a comment here on the blog and then email me at info at bookfaerie.com with your name and address and why you'd like to read the story. I'll pick a winner in about a week.
