I Believe I Found It

I went looking for a different purse book. One that would fit in my purse and be fun to read while on the bike and while standing in line and wouldn't take too much brain cells to catch up if I went for periods of time before getting back to it. But not too inane a book....I don't ask much. I believe I found what I was looking for, Holidays are Hell - Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Marjorie M Liu and Vicki Pettersson. Sometimes these collaboration books can go awry, but I think this one might be pretty good. It starts with a very strong Kim Harrison writing about a very young Rachel Morgan, the main character in Kim's series. I fell for the series immediately (back in the day) upon seeing the titles For a Few Demons More, A Fistful of Charms, The Good the Bad and the Dead, and Every Which Way But Dead.

from b&n
This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . .
There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!
I am looking forward to the rest of the book. My only problem will be finding the time this next week of holiday prep. If nothing else, it will get my butt down to the mancave to ride our recumbent bike just to get the chance to read. Work off the turkey and get my readin' on.
