For Roxanne McNally, being a grim reaper has never been easy. Now she hates her job more than usual, because she’s been charged with reaping the soul of a legend – werewolf Marty Andrews Flaherty.
Marty, together with her equally iconic friends Nina and Wanda, are Rocky’s idols. To say she’s an OOPs fangirl is putting it mildly. No way is she willing to deal with eons of hate Tweets for taking the soul of a paranormal superstar. Reaping supernaturals isn’t even her gig. She’s strictly human-only. No. There must be some mistake with the list, and she’ll get to the bottom of it…(Amazon)
Marty’s Horrible, Terrible, Very Bad Day is the 17th book in the Accidentally Paranormal series, but you don’t have to read the previous books to enjoy this one.
Marty, Nina, and Wanda are the founding members of OOPS (Out In The Open Paranormal Support), who help accidental paranormals cope with their new lives. The three best friends were accidentally turned into a werewolf, a vampire, and a werewolf/vampire (or is it vampire/werewolf?), so they can relate to the problems new accidentals face.
The story picks up shortly after The Accidental Mermaid, with Marty in a coma at the hospital. She had a heart attack and stroke, which is odd for an immortal. Even odder is that the grim reaper assigned to collect her soul, Rocky, refuses to take Marty’s soul.
Rocky is convinced that a mistake has been made, so goes undercover at the hospital to keep an eye on Marty and make sure no other reaper collects her soul before Rocky can figure out what’s going on.
Knowing that mistakes rarely happen and that her superiors have confirmed that Marty is on The List, Rocky is still convinced that it’s not Marty’s time. To complicate matters further, one of Marty’s doctors is the Phoenix that Rocky has had a crush on for decades. Uh-oh!
Is Marty being on The List a mistake or is Rocky risking her life & career for no reason, simply because she’s an OOPS fan? And will Dr Sexypants the Phoenix light Rocky’s fire, or is she doomed to crush on him from a distance forever? Inquiring minds want to know!
At under 200 pages, this is a fast, fun read! Loved hanging out with the OOPS girls again, even with one of them in a life-threatening coma.
