I love paranormal stories, and I love a great sense of humor and quirky characters in them. However, that must be done well or it's just irritating- sadly that's what "Accidental" was for me. Our "heroine" literally has NO personality, she's kind of a stand-in who reacts to things however the author thinks she should to progress the scene- whether it makes sense or not.

It's established very early on that she doesn't like her dog much, then she spends the rest of the book screaming for him if he's ever not in her arms at the moment- why does she start caring so much out of nowhere? She's dull, she's not smart and the whole "love interest" angle was pathetic and poorly done. She never uses her brains or courage, and her "gifts" are literally slapped onto her at the last minute- and of course she can easily use them, even though she didn't show any basic motor skills or common sense before. I liked her sassy grandma, and I only wished SHE was the star in this book. The whole thing reeks of being slapped together quickly, and I suspect it may have been to cash in on the success of paranormal and "cozy" funny books. I'll stick to Sookie Stackhouse and Queen Betsy instead of Lizzie Brown, thankyouverymuch.

I didn't have a lot of expectations when I picked up this book. I was just hoping for a fun, fluffy read. I didn't even get that. The characters have the potential to be interesting, but are never fully developed. The plot points seemed to move too quickly, jumping from one incident to the next, with a minimal amount of build up, and sudden, unsatisfying conclusions. For example, the author introduces us to a werewolf clan, sets us up for a big battle, and then within two pages its over and done. Very unsatisfying. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this one.

"All in all" this book was OK. At the beginning all the characters really irritated me. It was like standing in a room and everybody talking at once. I was frustrated that no one explained anything to the main character, Lizzie, but she just goes with anything she's told. There a section that deals with werewolves - don't really think it was necessary unless the author was setting up the alpha to be used in a future story. I have to admit my favorite character was Pirate....her dog.

I really was not impressed with this book. The characters never developed. The story seemed contrived. It *could* have been good. It *sounded* like a good, fun, lighthearted read. Oh well. At least it didn't take long to read!

If you're looking for a fun paranormal adventure, then hold onto your helmet, this will be one heck of a ride ! Lizzie Brown is looking forward to her 30th birthday party. But its waylaid by a demon popping up on her toilet seat and her Harley riding Grandma showing up casting spells! To make matters worse, now her dog Pirate is talking to her. She soon learns she is coming into her demon slayer powers , powers she hadn't a clue about.

Riding with Grandma to her coven, a backwoods gaggle of biker women, she meets up with Dimitri, who swears he is her protector. A glass of tall dark and handsome, it doesn't take Lizzie long to fall into his arms. After running into a pack of werewolves, she finds out that Dimitri has not been totally honest with her. Lizzie's only hope to make everything right is to go to the underworld and fight a demon.

Watching Lizzie learn about her heritage and work with her powers was much like watching a child ride a bike. Its a bit wobbly at first, but once she gets the hang of it, its phenomenal. Fox's debut novel is full of like-able character, wit, and magic. I look forward to reading much more about Lizzie's adventures.
