    Must Read!!

    These books always bring great joy to me. Although I was sad to see Sammy leave. I never thought I would say that.

    The larger roles for Grandma Bijou and Odessa was a great thing. They are great charcters. And keep Kelly out of town. I consider her not that great of a character.

    I don't like Joe, I am not sure why except he bores me terribly.

    Bravo, bravo, bravo for the engagement of Evan and Butch. I love Evan, he is so fun and so human. Every book should have an Evan. A character that never fails to make you smile.

    Read these wonderful books. Fall in love with Nicki Styx. I dare you!

    Great Book to Read

    This is the third in a seris and they are all great. I absoultly love this book. Its off beat and you dont really know if the realationship between Nicki and Joe is going to work with the Devil (Sam) trying to pull her away from him. Definitaly one to read if you enjoy paranormal books.

    Enjoyable Read

    I did enjoy this book but it was little bit of a let down after her first two, but I will continue to read books by Terri Garey. I love quirky characters and there are plenty galore in her books.

    If You've got It, Haunt It

    Georgia is known for its sultry summers and provides the perfect backdrop to Ms. Garey's newest addition to the Nicki Styx series. Garey is getting a reputation for smart plotting, fast pacing and sassy characterization, and this book delivers a powerful three punch combo.
    Nicki's humorous take on life, and the afterlife, continues to mature in the third book in the series. She's facing the questions we all tackle as we grow into a relationship, and as with everything else, Nicki does a full body tackle once she's made up her mind. She's also dealing with a whole new kind of teenage angst and taunting temptations when Sammy Devine, The Devil in Disguise, moves in across the street from her vintage clothing store. Sammy is no Devil in a Blue Dress; he's all man, all sex and once you've danced with him, you understand why The Bad Boys are oh so tempting. On the side of Good, Nicki's boyfriend, Joe Bascombe, is making a case for commitment. Unfortunately, Joe's plans are getting derailed by a vengeful teenager spirit.
    The supporting cast doesn't let the reader down in this book, either. Ms. Garey tackles some heavy subject matter in a respectful, light-hearted manner, sneaking a few good messages into the story. Nicki's long time best friend and business partner, Evan, deals with issues surrounding maintaining a loving relationship with his boyfriend, Butch. Nicki also turns to her "grandmother" for help; grandma just happens to be a cross dresser, but when she's in full drag, no one is the wiser. Grandma Bijou is a member of a ladies afternoon coven, and they come to town in full regalia to come to Nicki's aid. Ms. Garey addresses the touchy subject of religion and personal views in a very savvy manner. She brings it to the common denominator level: there are good guys and bad guys on both side of the religious fence. She portrays the witches and the Christians, and everyone that falls somewhere in between, in a very realistic, respectful way.
    In the third book, Nicki and Joe come face to face with a teenage ghost named Crystal. Nicki also deals with the Devil, rolling the dice with high stakes. There is mayhem, romance and suspense rollicking through this one. Ms. Garey also plants the seeds for an interesting mythology that I hope to see more of in the next books. Her take on the original Bad Boy and his secrets makes for interesting reading and should provide readers with fodder for some wild speculation.
    As in the past, this book leaves me very satisfied, and wanting more. Luckily, the next treat will arrive just in time for Samhain, better known as Halloween to most. "Silent Night, Haunted Night" hits bookstores October 27, 2009. Ms. Garey is following her own heroine's advice, much to my delight: "If you've got it, haunt it."

    urban fantasy chick lit fans will enjoy Nikki┬┐s latest caper

    In her twenties in Atlanta, Nikki Styx suffered heart failure. However instead of passing on, she is sent back to earth to help those dead unwilling to move on. She co-owns Handbags and Gladrags with Evan, who is despondent because his lover Butch is cheating. Nikki has had commitment phobia issues until she met Joe six months ago when she nearly died and he was her ER surgeon; Joe is also her sister¿s ex husband.<BR/><BR/>At the Moon Beam Coffee Shop an angry ghost Crystal accuses Joe of killing her. Sammy the devil arrives to inform Nikki and Joe that Crystal is his apprentice unless Nikki wants the position as he wants her to go dark. Sammy has opened up an Indie music store Divinyls nearby. Crystal leaps inside Nikki taking control of her and shouting that Joe killed her; Sammy tapes her outcry. Nikki forces Crystal out of her body. Afterward, she asks her sister Kelly in Savannah for help. Kelly promises to research possession and their transvestite ¿grandma¿ Bijou heads to Atlanta with the Savannah Garden Club members. Meanwhile Crystal¿s mother encouraged by Preacher Jimmy Boyd sues Joe and Columbia Memorial Hospital for wrongful death. As Crystal refuses to move on encouraged by Sammy, she possesses her again; Nikki realizes the dead woman cannot depart until she is assured that her twelve year old sister is safe, but to persuade the mom seems impossible.<BR/><BR/>The strong relationship between the lead couple is terrific as Crystal¿s possession and a hospital lawyer causes problems for Nikki and Joe. The strong support cast enhances the plot especially the Savannah posse, Sammy, and Crystal. Although the plot is thin especially the climax, urban fantasy chick lit fans will enjoy Nikki¿s latest caper (see A MATCH MADE IN HELL and DEAD GIRLS ARE EASY).<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
