About the Author

Katrina Monroe is a novelist, mom, and snark-slinger extraordinaire.

Her worst habits include: eating pretty much anything with her fingers, yelling at inappropriate times, and being unable to focus on important things like dinner and putting on pants.

She collects quotes like most people collect, well, other things. Her favorite is, “If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.” – Dorothy Parker

If you’re a fan of Christopher Moore, have I got a book for you. The similarities between Moore’s work and Sacrificial Lamb Cake jumped out at me immediately. (That the title could even be a subtle nod to Moore’s Lamb didn’t occur to me until much later. Sometimes I’m slow.)  This is a fun, sometimes intense, adventure with God and his operations depicted as a large corporation (I’m not sure if this part is actually fiction), and appearances from a few biblical characters. Jude (you may know Mr Iscariot from his key role at The Last Supper) is given a chance at redemption, but his plans quickly go off the rails. If you’re up for a good laugh and some good-hearted poking of fun at organized religion, Sacrificial Lamb Cake will fill the bill. If you’re looking for something deeper, you should be able to find that here, too. If the idea sounds way too blasphemous to consider, move along, nothing to see here. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

4.5 *Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. Rainfall on the Desert Plains Johnson hightailed it from her insane family at the first possible opportunity. With high hopes of college and then job success Rain ends up waitressing for a living. She’s not the success she thought she’d be and while she’s not unhappy she’s thinking she really needs to get a new life. One night when a weird guy shows up at one of her tables her life changes dramatically. She doesn’t know Jude’s story, but the unbelievable things he’s telling her are coming to pass. Rain is to be the new Messiah. Her. The non-believing, pacifist, lesbian loser in Life’s footnotes. When she had decided she needed to do something with her life, this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Delving into religion can be a tricky sell. Preach too much and you put off those who will never believe. Be too irreverent and you put off the hard-core believers. Right off I have to say that I don’t have any interest in religion and my knowledge is limited. That doesn’t matter with this book. Bible-type stuff is explained without boring me to tears and the humor sprinkled liberally throughout made me laugh out loud. In public. *nods* Well played Ms. Monroe. The plot, the writing and the characters are simply divine and I have to admit, as a fan of the expletive, that I found the occasional swearing to be quite amusing and not over the top. And bonus, the snark is strong with this one. Alternating POVs between Rain and Jude give the book a balanced feel and I have to admit the creative plotline as well as the inspired use of the Ultimate Traitor is what really sells this story.
