One Grave at a Time (2011) Jeaniene Frost

Here’s what I don’t get. That horrific cover? Same author. Same publisher, but the covers for this series are pretty damned awesome. And this doesn’t even merit something Jim Hines could mock for unrealistic/uncomfortable body poses!

Plus, it’s a great book!

I love how there’s still story even though Cat and Bones are all married and well-settled into their HEA. And how by at this point, they work out the problems like grown-ups. Sure, they overreact sometimes, and they get frustrated with each other, but that’s normal relationships.

I think, in a way, it might be harder to write them settled down as a happy married couple than when they were still working towards their HEA, but then again, this series has never focused just upon their relationship, but instead upon Cat and her being a total kick-ass heroine.

Which of course she does here.

There are two story arcs here, only one of which is resolved.

Cat’s uncle Done has died of cancer, but despite his refusal to be brought back as a vampire or ghoul, he’s a ghost. And not happy about being one.

The second story involves a ghost that Fabian brings to Cat and Bones, asking for their help in hunting down a centuries old witch-hunter whose ghost is still tormenting women.

Only one of these story arcs is resolved, but I’m not especially upset about it, since it was obvious there wasn’t going to be a quick resolution to this problem.

If you haven’t been reading the Night Huntress series, this isn’t the place to start. But it’ll be worth your times to start at the beginning and work your way here.

Oh, as usual with a Jeaniene Frost, there is lots and lots of boinking.
