    Devil's Daughter Lives In Pittsburgh, PA

    This is a hilarious, irreverent look at what it would be like to try to find love if you had the world's most dysfunctional family. The book does for demons what the TV show Bewitched did for witches - shakes up the scary stereotypes.

    Faith's trying to stay under the radar and blend in with the mortals. She works full time as nurse, has her own apartment and doesn't cause enough trouble to make dear old dad proud. When her irresponsible brother turns her roommate into a succubus, things are bound to get a little frazzled. Add trying to keep her neighbor from finding out her true identity when her entire family visits and you get the picture.

    What drew me immediately into this novel is that it's set in my hometown. Yep, the 'burg, home of the Steelers, the Penguins and the Pirates. So what's not to love? Okay, a couple of the jokes went a little over the religiously tasteful area, but it's a romantic comedy so no foul.

    If you're looking for a book to get people on the trolley looking at you funny while you snort and chuckle with the passing pages, go ahead and read it. I dare you.

    I couldn't put it down!

    This book throws you right into a world where divine beings really exist, and Jesus works as a paramedic. Comic action happens right from the premise - but how could it not when your main character is the Devil's daughter, who is rebelling against dear old dad by working long hours as an underpaid, unappreciated nurse. The comic action in this story is enough to keep you chuckling as you turn the pages. I would highly recommend this book, it is both witty and entertaining.

    Engaging and Recommended!

    Review brought to you by OBS staff member Karolina Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer is a wonderful, feel good paranormal comedy that sucks you in from the beginning (pun completely intended!). Faith Bettincourt - the Devil's youngest daughter- and her roommate Lisa begin the story by accidentally murdering a doctor who they work with (Lisa - the ditzy succubus in the write up is the culprit). Things definitely go pear-shaped from here on in with the appearance of Faith's older brother Tolliver, sister Hope (along with her recently 'fallen up' incubus husband, Boris) and her own dear father (the Devil Himself) and her ditzy mother to really make things complicated! This family reads as any disfunctionally functional family would - they all love each other to death; but have their own hang ups and crazy antics (and horns and tails thrown in to the mix). Eimer's devil is surprisingly sane - and not as evil as you'd expect. His offspring and chosen partner are far crazier than he is. It's kind of disconcerting how much I enjoyed the devil and his characterisation in this - he really could be anyone. Tolliver and Hope are a lot of fun with their attempts at villainy , and Lisa, though ditzy, is a complete sweetheart. Faith is a great storyteller, and a protagonist I think a woman can relate to -in a crazy "this could never happen to me, but if it did, that's so something I would do" way. Matt - the angelic hottie from next door, is also a great addition to the cast of wacky characters this book provides. He's incredibly grounding, and seems to take everything that goes on around Faith in stride- something (and someone) this character seems to desperately need. Eimer also does an amazingly good job at developing the mystery around Faith's creepy, malicious stalker (yep, that's right, there's a bit of a mystery running through the book, too!) with a satisfying ending. There's even a cameo from a Divine power, or two. The only downside of this book, from my point of view, was sort of being thrown into who the characters were. It took me a few chapters to ascertain who was who and how they connected to Faith, and why. For someone who is quite character based when she reads a book (which I definitely am) it was a little frustrating. But, once that was sorted out, the story made up for that hiccup. All in all, Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer is a great read, with really fun, engaging and (although wacky) amusingly real characters and a great plot. Definitely not a run of the mill story, and completely recommended!

    Luck of the Devil was a very fun book. Faith, the devil's younge

    Luck of the Devil was a very fun book. Faith, the devil's youngest daughter is caught up in family drama galore. Her brother has turned her roommate into a succubus, her sister and brother-in-law show up to "visit" uninvited, and they are followed closely by mom and dear old dad, Lucifer himself. There are a lot of things that go wrong in this family and Faith generally tries to stay out of it, but she gets dragged kicking and screaming into this one. 

    The romance in this one is cute and the characters are addictive. Then it all hits the fan when someone with powers begins to stalk her and send threatening notes. The family gears up to find out who is behind it all, and surprisingly, the hottie across the hall is on board to help in any way he can. More family drama ensues and Faith tries desperately to keep her father from having a meltdown - because the city will be melted down right along with him. 

    Lots of surprising twists in the story line, and the action just keeps on coming. Faith has a great sarcastic humor that I love to see in my romantic comedies, and Lucifer is just a complete riot! I really enjoy when authors take larger than life figures and give a quirky personality to match. I'll be reading the rest of the series over the next couple weeks. They sound just as great.

    Faith was a normal girl with a normal job trying to lead a norma

    Faith was a normal girl with a normal job trying to lead a normal life. That may have been easy to do, except for the fact she was a half demon and the youngest daughter of the devil. Faith's family showed up out of nowhere just when she was getting to know her new handsome neighbor better. Things start to go bad fast when Faith finds out she had a dangerous stalker and he/she wanted to eliminate her family.

    The art work for the cover was what drew me to this book. The humorous story was what kept me awake at night reading. The book read like a normal love story except that The Devil was Faith's father, God was her uncle and lets not forget her cousin Jesus. They are all on earth living life just like any other family. I found myself laughing while reading and this book was just a lot of fun. I am thrilled to know that the story does not end and I am looking forward for book two Devil May Care. (Check back for our review of Devil May Care) A great funny read.
