Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Cadence Jones, the multiple personality detective, must juggle her love life, her fantasy life and, alongside her sociopathic partner, her newest serial killer investigation. Cadence is moving in with her boyfriend, Patrick, the rich baker/entrepreneur who also happens to be her best friend's brother. But when a new serial killer case heats up on Moving Day, Cadence feels pressure from Patrick to step back from the work she loves, and she begins to worry that perhaps she's moved into the relationship—and Patrick's home—too quickly. Also confusing is the heady attraction she—and Shiro, one of her "personality sisters"—feels toward Dr. Max Gallo, whom she's met before and who has a connection to more than one of the recent victims. If that's not enough, former adversaries are reaching out, complicating the current case, and the agency she works for is losing funding. While Cadence tells herself she's excited for a normal life, events conspire to threaten nearly everything she's putting in place toward that goal, which may be a sign to question what she think she wants. Davidson's third and final installment in the series featuring Cadence Jones and her unconventional investigative agency is full of witty banter, intelligent humor, and characters that are unique, quirky and perfectly rendered. The mystery is interesting but functions more as a backdrop for all of the other action and relationships in the book, rather than as the primary driver of the story. Davidson's accomplished navigation of the investigation, the romantic and professional tensions, and the full range of mental disorders and eccentric characters is clever, inventive and entertaining and makes the book a fun, engaging read.

Meet the Author

MaryJanice Davidson

New York Times bestselling author MARYJANICE DAVIDSON has been credited with starting paranormal chick lit. She has also hit the USA Today and the Wall Street Journal bestseller’s list for her popular Undead series. She lives in Minnesota with her family. 

Biography

Reading the coyly self-deprecating autobiography on her web site, one gets the distinct impression that MaryJanice Davidson does not have the slightest interest in talking about herself. Perhaps it's because she simply doesn't have the time. Prolific does not begin to describe this chart-busting dynamo, the author of four bestselling series and literally dozens of novellas and short stories.

A writer with a few romances and YA novels to her credit, Davidson had tried for years to interest publishers in her idea for a humorous, tongue-in-cheek vampire romance. After dozens of rejections (and assurances that there was no market for paranormal!), she submitted her manuscript for publication online. An editor at a New York publishing house downloaded the story, was royally entertained, and contacted Davidson to acquire the print rights to Undead and Unwed. On the spot, she was offered a three-book contract.

When Undead and Unwed and its wry sequel, Undead and Unemployed, were released in early 2004, not one, but two stars were born: Davidson and her irresistible protagonist, the reluctant vampire queen Betsy Taylor. A smart, sassy, 27-year-old secretary, Betsy is killed in a freak car accident and wakes up (so to speak) to discover that she is not only a vampire but the much-prophesied Queen of the Undead. Readers loved Davidson's wry take on vampire literature, a genre long distinguished by its gothic self-seriousness. Betsy, with her smarty-pants attitude and passion for designer shoes, is one vampire queen who owes more to Sophie Kinsella than to Anne Rice.

While Davidson has continued to produce more Undead novels, she has also found the time to launch three other romantic fantasy series featuring 1.) a hybrid mermaid named Fred, 2.) an eccentric family of Alaskan royals, and 3.) a cyborg spy. All are infused with her trademark wit and imagination. In addition, she and her husband, Anthony Alongi, have written the Jennifer Scales series, originally marketed to young adults and re-released as fantasy fiction for all ages. Davidson also remains one of the most popular writers of paranormal romantica; her short stories and novellas appear regularly in anthologies.

Good To Know

Davidson is not the only one in her family to achieve fame. Her mother once broke the world record for target shooting.

Before she devoted her time to chronicling the love lives of vampires and werewolves, Davidson was voted Miss Congeniality in her high school.

Even though Davidson is one of the most popular writers of modern monster fiction, in real life she is actually terrified of the undead. In fact, she is currently holding a contest on her web site asking readers to put together a twelve-step program to help her get over her fear of zombies!

As she writes on her website, Davidson lived a transient life as a young girl. Her father's career in the U.S. Air Force led her to live in such disparate locales as Guam, Mississippi, and North Dakota. As she grew older, her life in the working world was just as restless as her childhood. She tried her hand at everything from waitressing to modeling to editing to a stint as a medical test subject (!) before settling on a career as a bestselling novelist. These days, her life may be a bit more settled, but it has hardly slowed down.

A few fun outtakes from our interview with Davidson

"I'm a former model -- worst job ever, honestly."

"I'm a gigantic sushi hog -- it's pretty much my favorite meal."

"The more terrible and groaningly awful a horror movie is, the more I like it."

"Um, I like bubble baths? Seriously. I know that sounds like something a Playboy Bunny would say, but I really do."

"I like taking my kids to new restaurants and encouraging them to try new dishes -- we did "Dim Sum" just the other day."

chapter one
 
 
I’m moving in with my boyfriend, the one I share with two other women, and I’m doing this because we’re in love and want to live together and make a family, our own family, and not because I’m desperate to do one normal thing. For once in my life.
There.
 
chapter two
Except for the murders, Moving Day would have gone on with no trouble at all. Okay, the murders and my partner showing up uninvited. And my best friend’s OCD being fiercer than usual. And my dog’s stealth pooping. That put a yucky tinge on the day. The murders were definitely the worst part, though. Okay, the murders and the poop.
Until Poopfest 2013, though, it was fun. Despite the nagging feeling that I might possibly be moving in with the wrong man.
(No! Even to think it is a cheat!)
Except of course that was ridiculous … Patrick was 100 percent the right man and any
(Stupid bitch.)
(Disloyal.)
—thoughts otherwise were … were …
Anyway, it was exciting to direct the movers and figure out which boxes went where. I was well into my twenties but could count on one hand how often I’d moved. I’d lived in a psych wing, and then near a psych wing, for over a decade, and after that in government housing. I’d only had my first apartment for three years when I had to leave because I had recently acquired a dog. And fallen in love! Those two aren’t in order of importance.
(Something you might not know: the nice thing about being an inpatient is you’re not expected to bring your own furniture, no matter how long you live there.)
This was my first house.
Our first house, I guess.
And it was beautiful! Utterly, utterly perfect. Which made sense because I was moving in with my utterly, utterly perfect baker. Boyfriend, rather. Who is also a baker, which is perfect because I love pastries. Perfect inside, perfect outside. All things in my life were coming together in a perfect fit. It was finally just so … Hmm, what’s the word? Starts with p …
“Are you all right?” My best friend, Cathie Flannery, had stopped dragging boxes up the sidewalk (the loading cart’s wheels were too dirty for her to be comfortable using it) to come give me a close-over. (Close-over = Flanneryism combination of giving someone a close-up and a once-over in the same glance. Yeah, it’s weird.) “You look kind of glazed.” She was close enough to make this out as she looked deep into my eyes, which was as unsettling as you’d guess. “Cadence, are you in there? Helloooooo?”
“Stop that.” I waved her back a step. “You know perfectly well I’m driving the body this morning. The glaze is because it’s so hot out.”
“It’s the week before Christmas. Here in balmy southern Minnesota.”
You might think it was condescending or weird to have someone tell me the season and the state, but Cathie was only covering her bases, and she thought she was covering mine.
Two other people live in my body, is the thing. Sometimes they steal it for weeks at a time. They’re squatters; I guess that makes me the slumlord.
(Don’t ever tell Shiro or Adrienne I said that. Please.)
Sometimes I start my evening heading out for another viewing of High School Musical (but never in 3-D; it’s hard enough living in a three-dimensional world without piling movies on top) and wake up in mainland China. That can be a problem for all sorts of reasons, beginning with my utter ignorance of all Chinese dialects.

    This was the third book in the Cadence Jones trilogy by MaryJani

    This was the third book in the Cadence Jones trilogy by MaryJanice Davidson. I have Ms. Davidson pretty much on auto read, so this book was a given. The first book in the trilogy, Me, Myself and Why? came out to very mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it. I found the second book, Yours, Mine and Ours not quite as good as the first, but sometimes that happens. This book however, really brought it all together and ended it on a good, if surprising, note.

    This is the story is of Cadence Jones and her two "sisters" Shiro and Adrienne. Cadence has multiple personality disorder and has since she was a child who witnessed her parents murder/suicide. Cadence is also a member of a secret FBI group called BOFFO or Bureau of False Flags Ops division. All of the members of BOFFO have some kind of mental illness, from her partner George who is a clinical sociopath, to a member of the crime scene team with kleptomania, and the office secretary who is agoraphobic. They all work together to fight crime, looking at things through a slightly skewed lens to track down killers. 

    Cadence, Shiro and Adrienne all know about each other and see each other as separate individuals who just happen to live in the same body. Cadence is the tall, blonde, blue-eyed Scandinavian decent primary personality, Shiro is a small logical, dangerous Asian woman and Adrienne is the red haired, fire starting wild child. Adrienne's appearances are sporadic and erratic. While on the other hand, Shiro and Cadence were the more dominant personalities with some differences. Shiro could look through Cadence's eyes and know what was going on, but Cadence could not. Cadence would then come back not knowing the date, time or even geographic location of where she was.

    This book is the one that brings out all the secrets, lies and brings the sisters the closest to reintegration that they have ever been. I know that the reviews for the previous two books have been very diverse, but if you have read the first one, or the first and second, you must read this one. It completely flips everything we thought we knew on its head and changes the rules. I was very impressed how Ms. Davidson pulled it all together and made it make sense. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads for shocking me with the outcome.

    Challenging story

    I have picked-up and set this book back down several times. Need a quiet place to follow this story.
