Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer is a hilarious, irreverent look at what it would be like to try to find love if you had the world’s most dysfunctional family. This book does for demons what the TV show Bewitched did for witches – shakes up the scary stereotypes.
Faith’s trying to stay under the radar and blend in with the mortals. She works full time as nurse, has her own apartment and doesn’t cause enough trouble to make dear old dad proud. When her irresponsible brother turns her roommate into a succubus, things are bound to get a little frazzled. Add trying to keep her neighbor from finding out her true identity when her entire family visits and you get the picture.
What drew me immediately into this novel is that it’s set in my hometown. Yep, the ‘burg, home of the Steelers, the Penguins and the Pirates. So what’s not to love? Okay, a couple of the jokes went a little over the religiously tasteful area, but it’s a romantic comedy so no foul.
If you’re looking for a book to get people on the trolley looking at you funny while you snort and chuckle with the passing pages, go ahead and read it. I dare you.
