Shake, Rattle And HauntShake, Rattle And Haunt by Terri Grimes


What do you do when a spirit that has a fondness for groping your girlie bits takes up residence in your home? Call your local Ghost Hunter, of course. After Gertie Sugarbaker gets over the fact that she had a drunken one-night stand with Sam Valentine, owner of Urban Ghost Hunters, they get down to business and try to cross the amorous entity into the light. Not an easy thing to do when the "ghost" is actually a third level demon, intent on dragging Gertie back to hell with him and making her his demon princess. To complicate matters even more, her deceased Grandmother pops in for a quick visit to tell her she’d been a demon hunter for the last fifty years of her life and now the mantle’s been passed to Gertie. Could her day get any worse?


Cooky Spooky
I found the book to be a little goofy but entertaining. Grandma was a demon hunter - every other generation in the Sugarbaker family was - but dear old Granny failed to pass this info on to Gertie before she died. She shows up from beyond the grave to help get rid of this demon - that was freed into this realm when an earthquake loosened a religious medal from the wall that was holding a portal shut, trapping it in a lower realm.
If I had a demon living in my house that was ugly, smelly, inapproriately touching, and violent then I don't think I would be as calm as Gertie is. I also don't think I'd be having sex there either. But, so it was. I think Timmy was my favorite character, if not a little bit over the top, he still had me giggling a few times through the story. It was a quick, light read. Overall, okay.

I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
