Overview

The devil went down to Georgia . . .

Nicki Styx has always known that the devil's in the details—but does he have to move in next door, too? Worse, he won't take no for an answer. Nicki would never leave her beloved boyfriend, ER doc Joe Bascombe, but hell hath no fury like a devil scorned. He's determined to make Nicki's life a living hell—even if it means exposing Nicki as an unwilling ghoulfriend to the dead.

Now, just when she was getting used to being able to see and hear—and help—spirits, Nicki's got a whole new set of problems. With ghosts descending from all sides, the bereaved knocking down her door, and Joe trying to take things to the next level, Nicki may finally be in over her head. It would be so easy to dance with the devil . . . but if Nicki crosses over to the dark side, she may never leave.

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."

This was again a great read. I love Sammy and really all of the characters in this book. Joe is getting on my nerves though. He needs to be more manly if that is possible. Maybe just a "stronger" backbone.

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!

This is the 3rd in the series and once again Niki is dealt a difficult hand. Sammy is back aka the devil and still tries to tempt her to the dark side all the while she's being possessed by an angry spirit and Joe's job is in trouble thanks to Sam. This book, like the previous ones is very thrilling and will keep you hooked

mmm.. Blonde Hair, Blue eyes, and a mouth watering Body who would have thought the devil could look so good.. While Nicki is fighting seeing Ghosts and trying to stay committed to boyfriend Dr. Joe she has to do internal battles against the lust she has for Sammy a.k.a the Devil.. I enjoyed the book although you go through it thinking ALRIGHT hook up already but knowing deep down Joe is a GREAT guy for Nicki.. I am looking forward to the next book..

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.
