Claire Hansen, the Keeper, is summoned to the Elysian Fields Guest House to reseal a hole in the basement, which is literally an opening to Hell. The owner and monitor of the site disappears, leaving Claire stuck managing the place until the problem is solved. Her new employee, Dean McIssac, is a gorgeous Newfie who cooks, cleans, and lives the Boy Scout oath. Then there's Jacques Labaet: very French Canadian, very sexy, very dead. Jacques is a ghost who wants to be the man in Claire's life. Oh yeah, and there's Austin, a talking cat with attitude: "I barely know you, but I'm assuming you're human. I'm not saying this is a good thing, it's just the way it is."
A laugh out loud kind of book. It is fun and despite the intense plot it stays light hearted with the cynical main characture. It is quite amusing, with a ghost with fleshly desires still intact, a talking cat, a "good-ole-boy" handy man, rounded off with Hell that has some pretty interesting conversations with itself!!
Light, frothy, funny. You should read it just to meet the Hell that talks to itself.
A slick fantasy read, at times laugh-out-loud funny. With the most annoying and adorable talking cat you've ever encountered.
I had a hard time getting into this book,I have never read anything like it,a talking cat threw me off,after about 100 pages I got into it and enjoyed.
