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 San Diablo Walmart. 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 dispose of a dead demon and pull together a dinner party-all without arousing her family's suspicion. Worse yet, it seems the dead demon didn't come alone. It's time for Kate Connor to go back to work.… (més)

There is not one part of this book that you don't already know from reading the description. It is Buffy bitching about wanting a normal life at her very whiniest. I regret the time wasted reading it. ( )

Fifteen years ago, demon hunter Kate Connor set aside her holy water and ninja skills in favor of diapers and minivans, but a new threat has pulled her out of retirement. This novel is silly and sweet and I quite enjoyed it, except for the demon voices on the audiobook, which are creepy as heck. It's not a good book, but it's fun. One thing that I don't quite get: what do they do with all of the bodies? ( )

Decent quick read. It was interesting to see how the main character attempts to segregate her current life with her past & present demon hunting. Try as she might, the demon hunting encroachment interfering in her personal life will be a losing battle as the series moves forward I bet. Good character development and a strong plot and storyline. The marital relationship conversations could be improved upon but overall a good 1st in series book. Also had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook. The narrator did a great job with giving each character their own voice - only a couple of mess ups when the dialogue between characters was short. ( )

Not badly written but not my thing and did not hold my interest. Not starring because do not want to slam what other readers might find a perfectly good read; but, the demon/paranormal portion very miniscule.

So basically a soccer mom tale including riding along with main character on stuff like picking up milk, finding a daycare, dealing with merged family. Not sure why another reviewer called it "romantic comedy" as current husband a bit on the cardboard side and except for one morning encounter that was apparently so out of the norm for their romance she started suspecting him--nothing really romantic. I am kinda suspicious that at one time was a regular fiction book that added some paranormal stuff to get published. And if it wanted to be romance or comedy or chick-lit or women's fiction -- it just should have. At my advanced middle age, a bit hard to accept that a woman who retired at least 15 years ago and never worked out since was immediately back in shape.

Dealing with teenagers and toddlers rang true; unfortunately, seen enough in real life to not be interested in reading so much of it in a fiction book I picked it up thinking that while likely silly would have some paranormal, comedy, romance type of plots that would hold up to being in a series I was hearing so much about. *ack* who wants to read carpool scheduling difficulties?
