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 really loved this book. I want to find other books by this author as she has others that look interesting as well. She really hooks you and doesn't let you go.

Claire is a keeper. That is she's "of the lineage". In other words....she keeps all hell from breaking loose. Literally. And she's a bit conceited about her abilities. Austin is a cat. A talking cat who's always right. And pretty funny to boot. Dean is a drop dead gorgeous 20 yr old who cooks. And cleans. And works for Claire in the run down Bed & Breakfast Claire has been summoned to. Jacques is a lusty ghost who's been haunting the B&B for 70 yrs. And then there are the assorted guests who drop in. Beginning with a vampire and ending with an actual medium. There is never a dull moment in this book. Oh and did I mention there is a hole to hell in the furnace room?

I really had a hard time getting into this book. Understanding all the levels of keeper, monitor, cousin, etc. was very confusing. It did get a little more interesting at the end, as most books do, but it was a difficult book for me to read.
