|Kate Connor is your average, everyday mom with two kids, a husband, and one very big secret …Now retired, Kate’s more interested in the domestic than the demonic. So when she catches sight of a demon in Wal-Mart, she tells herself it’s some other Hunter’s problem. But when that demon attacks her in her kitchen, retirement is no longer an option.She’s a little out of practice, but hey … if she can juggle two kids and an impromptu dinner party, ridding the town of demons should be a piece of cake.
Like the saying goes, Carpe Demon … and Kate intends to do just that.
Now Kate has to kick a little demon butt, figure out why the creatures are trying to take her out and take over her home town, and at the same time take care of her two year old, deal with a hormonal 14 year old, and try to keep her past a secret from her daughter and her husband.
“Smart, fast-paced, unique…a blend of sophistication and wit that has you laughing out loud.”—Christine Feehan, New York Times bestselling author

|Once again, Kate Connor has a problem. Several, actually.For one thing, her daughter has figured out that mom is a demon-hunter—and wants to be just like her when she grows up.And there’s that nagging suspicion that her dead husband has come back to life in the body of another man. Plus, her living husband still doesn’t know her secrets.
Not to mention the fact that she’s acquired a mystical item that the entire demon community seems hell-bent on reclaiming.
It’s all in a day’s work for this stay-at-home mom. But one thing is for certain: sometimes life in the suburbs really can be hell.
“This is the third in Kenner’s splendidly creative series featuring Kate, whose wickedly amusing adventures in demon hunting are a pure paranormal delight.” —Booklist
