"Quit? What do you mean, you quit?" I yanked the phone away from my ear, shook it like it was one of those Magic 8 Balls and I could get a different answer out of it. then slapped it to my head so hard I saw stars. "Barbara, you can't just quit."
Friday 56:
"Where are you, Gram?"

"Oh, honey, I'm on a cruise."


My grandmother went on cruises every other week. Even in the fall, when most sane people want to stay on dry land, Harry was out on the high seas, bingo-ing her way to happiness.
This week I am spotlighting More Than Fiends by Maureen Child which has been on my TBR mountain since March 29, 2008. Here is the description from Amazon:
Cassidy Burke is finding it hard to believe that she's next in a long line of demon dusters-Burke women paired with centuries-old cleaning solution to shine windows and spot demons. Sure, her "Clean Sweep" maid service is taking off, but wiping out supernatural bad guys? Come on.

But Cassie's surprised by her sudden fighting instincts and fierce new strength...both of which she's going to need. For one thing, her teenage daughter thinks her dad is dead, but in truth he just never knew about her...and now he's moved back to town. And after many dateless years, men are finally lining up on Cassie's doorstep. Sadly, most of them aren't human.

  3. LOL Oh my gosh this sounds good. I am def putting it on my TBR list. Thank you for visiting my post!

  4. Sounds like a fun one as long as she stops banging the phone off of her head! LOL. Happy weekend!

  5. This sounds like such a fun read. Love those excerpts. Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  6. I would have never thought More Than Fiends had any supernatural aspects based on the book cover. It sounds like a fun story. Thanks for mentioning it!

  7. I love that the grandmother goes on so many cruises. That was me pre-pandemic.

  8. So, from the title, the Friday 56 and the book beginning you would NEVER know this book had supernatural elements! So funny. I was thinking contemporary fiction.

  9. It always feels good to knock something off the old tbr mountain.
