“A child’s weakness — to regard
An animal whose life is brief
With such affection and such grief.
If such is weakness, so it be.”
Quote from In Memory of Our Cat, Ralph by Garrison Keillor

I’ve read Monk’s Allie Beckstrom series and the Terric and Shame duology and enjoyed both but Ordinary was so much more fun.
It’s time for the annual Rhubarb Rally and police chief Delaney Reed and her sisters (and sister officers) have their hands full with the influx of tourists. And Delaney is still trying to figure out what or if she should do about the return of Ryder Bailey who she has crushed on since grade school. Then her ex-boyfriend returns unannounced, Death decides to vacation in Ordinary, and a god is murdered.
A god can die in Ordinary but his power doesn’t. The power is held inside one mortal, Delaney, and she has seven days to find the person the power will accept. Failure means death- for her and the town of Ordinary.
This was a fast romp with exploding rhubarb, perambulating caped concrete penguins, and baked goods.
Found out through Bookriot this morning.

Just found RWA’s announcement of the closures here.
The first full length adventure of Makenna Fraser is sure to be one of the most enjoyable books of 2015. Shearin has made imminent death and destruction a whole lot of fun.
Mac is the seer for the New York office of Supernatural Protections & Investigations, a small town girl who moved to New York to become a journalist and is now wreaking her own brand of havoc on the supernatural community of New York.
Her boss is a dragon, the company lawyer is a vampire, her partner is a frighteningly competent human, and Mac, well Mac is armed with a paintball gun and her ability to see through any disguise or veil conjured by the paranormal. That’s a good thing because on New Year’s Eve someone is going to unleash two almost unstoppable, human-hating monsters on the revelers in Times Square. As New York prepares to toast the new year, Mac and the SPI are trying to keep New York from being toast in the new year.
Highly recommended. On sale on Kindle for $1.99.
