Viola Marek is a struggling real estate agent, and a vampire. But her biggest problem currently is that the house she needs to sell is haunted. The ghost haunting the house has been murdered, and until he can solve the mystery of how he died, he refuses to move on.

Fox D’Mora is a medium, and though is also most-definitely a shameless fraud, he isn’t entirely without his uses—seeing as he’s actually the godson of Death.

When Viola seeks out Fox to help her with her ghost-infested mansion, he becomes inextricably involved in a quest that neither he nor Vi expects (or wants). But with the help of an unruly poltergeist, a demonic personal trainer, a sharp-voiced angel, a love-stricken reaper, and a few high-functioning creatures, Vi and Fox soon discover the difference between a mysterious lost love and an annoying dead body isn’t nearly as distinct as they thought.


I received this book from Macmillan Audio through I am leaving this review voluntarily. 

This book is widely amusing.  I found myself smiling and laughing out loud several times. Viola is trying hard to sell a ghost infested mansion but the ghost isn't making it easy.  He can't seem to leave the house. Viola can see him since she is a vampire. With her friend, a demon she goes to see Fox D'Mora the godson of Death. 

Fox doesn't like doing jobs for creatures he says every time he does it he winds up getting him involved in something he doesn't want to be a part of. Against his better wishes he agrees to help her. 

When he gets to the Mansion with a Reaper, and an Angel in tow he finds that his god-father is missing and the other angels think that he is the only one who can save the world. In order to do that he has to win an unwinable game where the only rule is not to lose. 

Wildly entertaining and unique this is a great read. The narration is fantastic and sucks you in.
