Lizzie Brown is about to have the destination wedding her dreams. But as this former preschool teacher knows, being a demon slayer makes everything more complicated. The vengeful Earl of Hell is still on her tail. And now it seems that one of the guests at the eccentric, seaside mansion is possessed and trying to kill her. Maybe she should just elope.
The groom, studly shape-shifting griffin Dimitri Kallinikos, vows to protect her at all costs. Yet even he is acting suspicously. And minions of the devil are popping up everywhere. Now Lizzie must protect her socialite mother, her Greek inlaws and her grandmother’s gang of biker witches – all of whom are convinced they know what’s best for her, and her big day. As the wedding draws closer, Lizzie has to learn who is behind the attacks – and fast – or risk losing everyone she loves.
First Date: Lizzie and I met back in 2008, when her first book, ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER, was published. We had a good time, getting back together for the second and third books. But then we lost touch. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Lizzie and her talking dog or her granny and granny’s cadre of motorcycle-riding, spell-casting biker witches. It wasn’t that I disapproved of her soooper-hot honey, Dimitri (quite the contrary!). It was that her series stopped being published by LoveSpell and I couldn’t find it. I was sad. That is until this novel popped up on NetGalley, and I remembered how much I enjoyed Lizzie and all the over-the-top lunacy that revolves around her like planets orbiting the sun. Reunion dates, FTW!
Second Date: Lizzie’s grown quite a bit from the quiet, rule-following teacher in the first book and not just in the way she dresses (seriously, white capris are *not* made for Harley riding. Leather is definitely the way to go.). She’s found herself a good man, learned how to work with her powers and talents, accepted the fact that she’s got a serious job to do, and even finds the backbone to stand up to her mother, who’s rented a mansion and is organizing a week’s worth of “fun” festivities leading up to Lizzie’s wedding. But, because this is Lizzie we’re talking about, it all goes pear-shaped rather quickly, including someone trying to kill Lizzie and (what else?) demons.
Third Date: When not sneaking away to canoodle with her hot fiancé (seriously, did you know sound travels quite a bit in fog? And cries of passion can be mistaken for screams? Truth.), Lizzie does her best to corral her soon-to-be-relatives, the biker witches and her mother’s society friends and, of course, party-crashing demons. I’ve missed you, Lizzie! *tackle hugs* Maybe, let’s not wait so long before getting back together, huh?
