After a childhood filled with demons and her devil-worshiping parents, Lydia longs for a quiet, normal life, a safe haven somewhere blissfully dull. Being the manager at the Roanoke Apartments seems to fit that bill. But Lydia soon learns that you can't leave the past behind so easily. She finds herself faced with unclogging drains for werewolves, conducting nightly vampire counseling sessions, and caring for two talkative cats. Then there's the distraction of Geoffrey, the hottest, and most angelic, boss anyone ever dreamed of. As if that isn't enough, the demon who nearly killed her shows up to finish the job. So much for a peaceful, simple life...

About the Author
Katherine Gilbert was born at house number 1313 and then transplanted to a crumbling antebellum ruin so gothic that The Munsters would have run from it. She has since gained several ridiculously-impractical degrees in English and Religious and Women's Studies. She now teaches at a South Carolina community college, where all her students think, correctly, that she is very, very strange, indeed.

Who knew angels, demons, shifters and more really existed? All Lydia was looking for was a normal life, away from her devil-worshipping parents. What could be more normal than being the manager at the Roanoke Apartments complex? She soon finds that there is more than meets the “normal” eye, including her angelically handsome boss and his devilishly attractive counterpart? Has Lydia gone from the horrors of her home life to a different kind of horror at her new job? Was it a coincidence she found a job working with paranormal creatures of all ilk or has Fate brought her to the Roanoke Apartments for something more? Was it love or something dark and sinister? PROTECTING THE DEAD by Katherine Gilbert certainly blazes its own trail in the paranormal world! A little comedy, a little romantic intrigue and a cast of characters that are definitely unique and often quirky! Good versus evil takes on a different feel as Lydia discovers that sometimes, you can’t run away from who you are and what you were meant to do. A fun read with a plot that is far from dark and ominous, this one held my attention from start to finish. You know the phrase, I didn’t see THAT one coming? Yep, you will be thinking that a few times throughout this unique tale! I received a complimentary Copy from Katherine Gilbert!
I loved this book, as the characters and storyline dragged me in. The protagonist’s willful amnesia at the beginning leaves her as bewildered as I was, when the other characters, including the cats, clearly KNOW SOMETHING I DIDN’T, and it is the unraveling of this unknown that kept me reading at first. But then the appealing characters and their dangerous situation becomes the draw, until I couldn’t put the book down until seeing how the classic battle of good versus evil concluded. Hollywood take note, as this book would make an excellent movie and/ or television show.
