154) A Demon does it Better by Linda Wisdom
Lovely witch Lili Carter takes a job at a paranormal hospital where patients have been disappearing. There she encounters Jared, a dangerously sexy demon on a mission that gets Lili into a world of trouble. Lili can't avoid Jared for long and soon they find themselves creating a whole new kind of magick...
My Review :
I loved Linda Wisdom's fun witchy books and even though the series has moved over to 'demons' and has lost the cool comic covers, it is still a hit with me. A Demon does it better is the newest installment and this time we get introduced to a witch called Lili and a demon called Jared. Both are mysterious and fun characters to get to know and their relationship throughout the book makes for great reading.
What the author manages to do with the rest of the story is just amazing. She not only manages to create some super background characters but she also brings in yet another excellent side-kick. Fluff and Puff are obviously the best so far but Cleo holds her own as Lili's cat familiar. She definitely adds some giggles to the whole story and I loved her just as much as the main characters.
The plot is very interesting this time around and with Lili being a doctor you are treated to a bit of Grey's Anatomy and House style drama mixed with the paranormal. The idea is once again unique and I love the way the author either brings in former characters or at least mentions them. Despite this being a new series the other witches that were mentioned back in the Jazz books are making themselves known here. So fans of Jazz really need to check out these new books.
So in conclusion, don't be put off by the change of series name or cover style. This is Linda Wisdom at her best and expanding on the Jazz Tremaine books she is so well known for. Full of paranormal delights, mystery and romance there is also a lot of fun and laughs waiting inside this book. I can only highly recommend it and say how much I eager for more.
