Page one. A knife wielding, seven foot tall Native American threatens the new owner of the Inn. Eh, what's so unusual about that? He's a fairy! With pink wings! Yeah, I know what you're thinking because I did too. What kind of book did I just get myself into? And it just gets crazier from there. (If you've read her Midnight Hunter series, this is off the Richter scale different.)
The girl next door who manages the Inn takes an instant dislike to the new owner. That's okay, it's mutual. Unfortunately for him, she gets along just great with his daughter. In spite of being able to see the supernatural world, he's in full denial. Wanting his daughter to fit in and be 'well adjusted' he insists everything she sees is just her imagination.
This book starts out with a bang that continues all the way to the end. What a fantastic cast of characters. There's a motorcycle riding ex-con with custody of his teenage daughter (these two are a hoot before anyone else comes into the picture), Syndy the grotesque (do NOT call her a gargoyle), more fairies, a grounded (sort of) dragon with a thing for fresh vegetables (and has no problem taking them from the garden), talking animals including a cat that wishes everyone would just stop with the cat jokes already, ghosts, and zombies. Oh yeah, let's not forget the talking grass. Say what?! I'm not telling you about everyone; I have to leave a few as a surprise.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Bottom line? If she has any more like this, I want them.Read more ›
This book has some very memorable characters and you are sure to have your own favourites, mine is Higgins a smart and sassy back-talking cat whose outspoken comments will make you smile.
Several times I only wished I could step into this world (especially in the first few chapters) to shake some common sense into both Cobra and his initially quite odious daughter Zoe.
The book works on several levels with one story line being the gradual acceptance by Cobra that he must reconcile himself to the magical world and that it is his denial of his true self that has led him to being the obnoxious loser that we are introduced to.
The denouement of the murder mystery is well done although Bonnie Bernard does practice a sleight of hand that would be annoying in a straight traditional murder story. There is also a red herring that is very well done.
This is a great book. It is cleverly written with a wide range of well drawn and quite memorable characters. The pacing is well done and does not flag as the author introduces several small episodes that keeps the story running on a high.
In conclusion I would say that if this is how Bonnie Bernard writes then her other work is a definite must read.
This is a highly entertaining read! I LOVED IT!
Cobra (real name Corbin) Carpenter is a fantastic character. He is an ex-con with an alcohol addition he is trying to kick. When he inherits a Bed and Breakfast business, his whole world gets turned upside down! I really liked this character, even though his belief (or is that disbelief?) of other worldly creatures is severely tested.
Zoe Carpenter is his twelve year old daughter. She is another fantastic character. She is very sweet and still has the ability to see fairies and other creatures that adults no longer see. I liked her very much.
There are also some other fantastic characters in this story. These include a talking cat, a dragon (or 2), fairies, zombies and a family of yeti's by the name of Smith!There is even a ghost from the seventies (that's 1970's!) called Foxy, who talks in rhyme. This story ROCKS! It completely pulled me in and kept me hooked from the first page! I found this book to be an exciting and unusual read. There are some twists and turns which kept me guessing, and the mystery of the murderer only got deeper as the story progressed. This story has a mixture of humour and horror that intrigued and appalled, but at the same time thoroughly entertained. The end of the story has a HUGE twist (for which I hated the author for - how dare she end it like that!!!) that completely shocked me! I don't normally swear, but I did and went "Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!". I hope there is a sequel, because I would love to know what happened next! If not, the ending is cruel and unusual punishment!
Bonnie Bernard has written another amazing story that is full of eccentric and quirky characters that come alive on the page.Read more ›
