With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.
Charley's been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he’s near, but naturally he swears he’s fine.
While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they’ve accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….My thoughts:
I couldn't wait to get into this book. I have the physical book, but wanted to continue it on audio since I've done all of them on audio. Luckily my library got it (with my prodding...) and so I picked up this series where I left off last. I couldn't wait to meet "Beep". :)
While this one doesn't have quite the same punch as the other, I still enjoyed my time with Charley and the gang. Oh and Reyes... need I say more? LOL This book is as humorous as the others and I frequently had a smile on my face. I had heard about this horrible twist in the end so I was nervous about the ending. However, when the twists came, I was not upset. I didn't love the twist, but I could also live with it. I think my imagination worked overtime so when the twists came, I was thinking... "is that it? Oh no problem!" :)
I give this audio 4 stars and as before I highly recommend this series on audio. If you weren't already a Lorelei King fan, this series on audio will make you one quickly.
As promised here is the other teardrop sling for the little girl on my holiday list. This one is by RLR Creations and comes in multiple sizes. This one is the small. I'm going to try a medium size next.
