California Demon...Review

About the book:
Welcome to San Diablo. The perfect place to raise a couple of kids. And a lot of Hell.

What's a mother to do, when there are only so many hours in the day, and the fate of the world is in her hands?

Kate Connor was a retired demon hunter. Now, after fourteen years busting her tail as a suburban housewife, raising two kids, and supporting her husband s political ambitions, she s rejoined the workforce -- and except for a few minions of evil, no one has a clue. She tries hard to keep her home and work lives separate -- a good idea when your job involves random slaughter.

Between fending off demon attacks, trying to figure out why the mysterious new teacher at the high school seems so strangely familiar, and keeping a watchful eye on her daughter s growing infatuation with a surfer dude, Kate is the busiest -- and most dangerous-- soccer mom on the block...

I enjoyed the first book. I couldn't get into this one. I finally settled for skimming it. A definite disappointment. In theory, these could be fun books: a Buffy wannabe becomes a soccer mom, complete with teenager and toddler.

Unfortunately, this one wasn't a fun read. In fact, I just found the whole thing annoying. There was no point, no reason to keep reading. It was tiresome and repetitive.

Don't bother.

Thanks to my local library for having a copy I could borrow instead of buy.  If you want to get one, you can do so here.
