Book Review by Joshua Palmatier

Have you read this book?

This is the seventh book in Laura Resnick's Esther Diamond urban fantasy series and the odd shenanigans surrounding the main character continue.
In this case, the story picks up immediately after the end of the previous book, with Esther wondering why Nelli--their familiar from another dimension, there to help them fight evil--nearly tears her sometime-boyfriend's partner's throat out. Suspicious that Quinn is behind the corpses that are suddenly starting to rise again after death, she attempts to watch him while continuing to keep her new job as a recurring character in the TV show The Dirty Thirty, a gig she does NOT want to screw up.

But everyone's stress is skyrocketing as everything from Esther's relationship with Connor Lopez deteriorates to accidents occurring on set and near Quinn continue. So what's up with Quinn, who seems like a normal cop, and will it finally end her relationship with Connor?
This has the usual humor and fast pace that readers have come to associate with Esther, Max, and those who get drawn into her life. In comparison to past books in the series, it's a little light--both in terms of plot and action--although it certainly ends at a high point.

The set-up for the situation wasn't a kitschy and cute as some of the previous books, but it was still a fun, quick read.  I'm hoping that, given how it ends, some rather significant changes are going to come in the next book in the series.
So, a good, light, fun book.
