“When an FBI Internal Affairs investigation lands the Preternatural Crimes Unit in a bureaucratic spank-fest, it feels like the perfect time for Marnie Baranuik to skip town and lend her expertise to a bear-sized Canadian cop who doesn’t want her help with his case, his love life, or his car stereo. Back in her childhood stomping grounds, Marnie leaps into action, facing an exorcist in skinny jeans, a slap-happy specter, and an old friend up to new tricks. Are ghosts behind a string of unusual deaths? Why didn’t her revenant companion, Lord Harry Dreppenstedt, tell her he had a Combat Butler? Can she survive dinner with her parents? With a shifty man of the cloth offering her soul’s redemption, and a revelation that could change the future of her love life, she has her gloved hands full. She may not make a great first impression, but no one makes a Last Impression quite like Marnie.”
Once again, like the others in this series, this book has cracked me up like no other! This is by far one of my favorite series just for that reason! Marnie is so funny and the commentary that runs thru her mind and out her mouth makes for a laugh out loud story every time! I said it before and I’ll say it again, the very creative phrases she comes up with are AWESOME!! i.e. ~ “Holy crispy crapsicles.” and “Marcel Mo-Fo, the world’s hunkiest, most jerktastic mime.” and “cock-witted jackass” and one of my personal favorites “Well, Boogernuggets.” which I have recently started using to the delight of my children who laugh every time I say it!! LOL! There are so many more, but I don’t have room to post them all and I don’t want to spoil the funniness for you when you read it the first time!!
I liked that in this book we see a little more mellow and somewhat more vulnerable Marnie. I think it helped me to be able to understand her better. The team up with “Longshanks” was great! He and Marnie were a perfect working together fit in this book!
All in all, this is a wonderful, funny story that was as good if not better than the previous ones. I absolutely can not wait for the next in the series and was so excited to be able to get the ARC to read and review for all of you!!
