Every Demon Has His Day by Cara Lockwood

Whipping up prize-winning chicken fried steak...fighting demonic forces...East Texas gals can do it all!

In her wildest dreams, Constance Plyd never thought she'd see dead people. Then again, she never thought she'd be hit on by her ex-husband at his own funeral...or be the prime suspect in his murder. Fortunately for Constance, irresistibly sexy sheriff Nathan Garrett wants to believe her explanation -- that a card-carrying demon in a black suit killed Jimmy in the garage -- or maybe he wants something more. Either way, all signs are leading to a showdown of hellish proportions, with Constance at the heart of the battle, when the Devil and would-be mother of the Antichrist (a pop princess wannabe) descends on Crockett County. Sure, she'd rather be cooking up a storm for the next state fair, but if she's going to be the Chosen One, at least Constance can give a few demons a Texas-style butt kicking....

Cara Lockwood does a great job painting a picture of her characters. I love the snarky attitudes, which I do in most books I read. However, it did get a little too much, even for me. I love the idea of the story, unlikely hero.romance.paranormal happenings.dead people.great stuff. My fav. Several times Cara Lockwood's witty writing had me laughing out loud. It had me flipping from page to page rather quickly as well. Some scenes were a little too corny, but I read right through them and was rewarded with a great ending.

Constance Plyd has been waiting for months to get her husband to sign the divorce papers; she believes this is the day she has prayed for. However, before that can happen, she finds Jimmy¿s dead body with a screwdriver protruding from his back. At the scene is the Pride demon Yeman who killed him. He gives her his card as he and Shadow the Gluton demon know she is the Chosen One as the prophet with visions that indicate who Lucifer is to have sex with in order to begat the Antichrist.

Sheriff Nathan Garret, who years ago had sex with Constance one day and left her the next, questions her. He finds her story unbelievable, which she can understand as so does Constance. In a vision she sees a small dog wearing a pink sweater who will help her. The canine Frank turns out to be an apprentice angel who belongs to movie star Dante London. The star is coming to town to film a movie. She is the vassal chosen to carry the Antichrist, but Frank and Constance wait for more of her visions to determine when and where the seduction will tale place so they can stop Lucifer from carrying out his plan.

Combining elements from urban fantasy, religion, and chick lit elements, Cara Lockwood creates an amusing lighthearted romp starring a non-believer who has visionary powers due to her matriarchal DNA. Constance always thought her mom Abigail was a fruitcake until she began to see the truth. It takes her a while to accept her skill, but once she does even Lucifer believes she is a force to be reckoned with. Readers will enjoy this off-beat humorous yet action-packed thriller as the strong cast knows that EVERY DEMON HAS HIS DAY even if it takes eternity for it to occur.

Maybe I just have a wacky sense of humor, but I really enjoyed this. Yes, it gets goofy at times. It's vaguely reminiscent of the movie 'End of Days,' but without that Republican who never bothers to learn English well. It's also a little bit like 'Men in Black,' what with the talking lapdog and all. If you like Sookie Stackhouse, you're likely to enjoy Constance Plyd, visionary minor prophet. The good-versus-evil dramedy overwhelms the romance, and the sex is "off-camera," so this doesn't quite count as a paranormal romance. Still, it's entertaining. Once I got to the last 100 pages or so, I couldn't put it down.

I picked this up on a whim, mostly because I thought the cover was interesting. I'm glad I did! The story was interesting and funny. Maybe I'm a little twisted, but I thought the demons were the most likable characters in the book! The use of the teeny-bopper was hilarious to me, and had me mentally calculating which celebs this could easily happen to. It was a fun book, easy to read, and had a good flow. At times, it reminded me a bit of the movie Dogma, but that's not a bad thing. This will be going into my permanent poolside collection.

Constance Plyd who sees dead people, add her ex-dead-husband Jimmy and her first lover, Nathan who's the sheriff, toss with demons, the Anti-Christ, the Chosen, and a talking dog, serve in a Texas rural setting, and you have a thoroughly entertaining and hilarious book. Looking forward eagerly to the next installation.

Chicklit meets paranormal romance equals ¿Every Demon Has His Day¿. Cara Lockwood¿s hilarious story of a small town, soon-to-be ex-wife turned `minor prophet¿ left me grinning. This is IN NO WAY a serious or heavy read. Nope, this is light-hearted, funny, and almost a spoof of the darker, paranormal books on every shelf of your bookstore¿s romance section.

Constance really isn¿t having a good day. First her soon-to-be-ex tried to `help¿ again which means he put laundry soap in the dishwasher! Now her floor is covered with suds. Next, she hears a noise in the garage and finds her husband on the floor, obviously dead, with a screwdriver in his back and a weird dude in black standing over him. Then, the weird dude gives her a business card that dissolves into ash after she reads it and he disappears¿leaving her with a dead husband and a story absolutely nobody in their right mind will believe. To top off her day, the new Sheriff (who just happens to be the old flame who took her virginity, never called back, and moved away) shows up and, of course, can¿t believe a word she says. Is that a bad day, or what?

Now she has to deal with: a talking dog who¿s an angel-in-training, the hunky sheriff, visions she can¿t control, sex with said hunky sheriff, two demons dogging her every step, getting arrested after sex with said hunky sheriff, a movie star who sold their soul to the devil (just one?), more sex with said hunky sheriff, and a ditzy teenage movie star she must prevent from giving birth to the Antichrist¿oh, and more sex with the sheriff and a Ramboesque Catholic priest.

If all that sounds funny, that¿s because it is. Whether or not Lockwood intended her book to be satiric, that¿s how I read it and it still makes me grin when I think about it. There were a couple of places where I though the author went over to line to silliness, but there weren¿t enough of those to keep me from enjoying the read. The sexy sheriff¿was sexy, and had thankfully grown up a bit. But seeing him receiving the `karmic return¿ from just about every woman in town because of his teenage actions was in some way cathartic ¿, and simply, evilly enjoyable.

Cara Lockwood has plans to release another book with at least some of the same characters. I¿ll likely buy that one just to see if it¿s as amusing for me as ¿Every Demon Has His Day¿ was. So for anyone looking for a break from the plethora of emotional, dark paranormal romances out there today¿I think you could do much worse than picking up a copy of Lockwood¿s book¿and laughing your way through it!

The idea for the story , awesome! The writing style not so awesome. I felt like i had to wade through a LOT of useless info to get to the point. It was like the story was written by someone in middle school. I forced myself to finish it and it did get better but if i could trade to get my time back i would.
