When I first landed a bartending job at the local guild, I didn't know a thing about magic. These days, I'm practically an expert on the different magical classes, but there's one nobody ever talks about: Demonica. Turns out they have a good reason for that. My guild is strictly hellion-free, because who wants to risk life and limb to control the biggest bullies on the mythic playground? Well, some people do, and now, a demon has been loosed in the city.

I enjoyed the first book, but, this one missed the mark. The characters and plot are flat and uninteresting. I couldn't force myself to finish it.

Roberta Sedgewick is stuck in a house that is too empty without her beloved Burton - the rat died and left her with his dog and rooms that rattle. She convinces her three golfing buddies, all in their 70s, to sell their homes and buy adjoining condos. The widows intend to spend the rest of their days golfing, gambling at the casino, and having fun. Oh, the heaven of it. But then they all hire the same maid who uncovers long-hidden, criminal secrets kept by each woman. Oh, the horror of it.

This is a pretty good story. The characters are engaging and the story is pretty good. However, I couldn't really get into it and I figured out the villain early on in the story.

This is an ok story but, it's not for me. I didn't really like any of the characters, especially Harley. She's homely and plain, but, she's such a good person that everyone loves her. The ones who do not like her hate her because no expectations are placed on her. The mystery is complicated and there are several twists and turns. However, after a while I got tired of the characters and skipped to the end of the story. Jamiy McMasters is an ok narrator, but I was expecting the characters to have a southern accent. I won't be getting the next book in this series.
