Overview

“Ninety-nine percent of the wives and moms in the country will identify with this heroine. I mean, like who hasn't had to battle demons between car pools and play dates?" Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times bestselling author


After fourteen years as a stay-at-home mom, Kate Connor has finally rejoined the workforce. But unlike most working moms, Kate can't rearrange her home obligations to fit the needs of her job. Well, not easily, anyway. And not without a few little white lies.

Because the truth is, no one in her family has any clue that she's returned to the job of her youth. Which means no late nights working beside her husband at the kitchen table while the kids watch television. Although, when you think about it, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Because when your job is fighting demons, taking your work home with you is a really, really bad idea ...

    This is a fantastic book and it gave me great pleasure reading i

    This is a fantastic book and it gave me great pleasure reading it! Kate Connor's adventures are funny and interesting. The way she juggles her domestic life with the demon hunting missions is so funny, without seeming non-sense or ridicously.

    Now, her daughter, Allie, is on a surf club and the captains of said club appear to be demons. The demons are preparing a new threat to San Diablo, with demons trying to escape from Tartarus. As if that wasn't enough, a new teacher of Allie has the same expressions and manerisms that Eric, Kate's first husband, had and that makes Kate think...

    I'm very curious to read the next books and know more. Kate and her family, as well as the other characters, are the kind that get under my skin and they are unforgettabble.
