CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Although Wicked and Haunted, is the first book of this series I have read, it’s not the last. I plan to read all the earlier books. Filled with zany characters, hilarious snips, and snarky dialogue, I laughed continuously. I loved the characters Smith developed for this book; from the zany Jackie to the domineering demanding Alice.
With many plot threads, Smith skillfully brought them all together to form an entertaining book. The scenes flowed smoothly from scene to scene with skillful development of the story-line. With steady pacing, I never lost interest in the story; I read this book straight through. Creating a department in the FBI of paranormal activity does not seem highly abnormal, rather Smith made it appear normal; just an another branch of the FBI.
I loved the character Smith created in Mandy; she’s not a sex kitten nor picture perfect beautiful, but a normal slightly pudgy woman in love with a handsome man; who returns that love. Normal that is, except for one thing: Mandy talks to ghost which is how she became involved in the FBI. As I had not read the other books, I wasn’t sure I liked Rick, as I had no earlier insight into his personality. However, as the book progressed, I found he’s a prince among men; perfect for the slighting insecure Mandy.
Smith held the mystery close to her chest; not revealing the when, why, or who until the last-minute. I love a good fun story with romance and mystery; Wicked and Haunted fit the bill. Also, wedding planning with the demanding mother-in-law from hell gave way for a great deal of hilarity in the story-line.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for paranormal romance book, Wicked and Haunted, I found a solid book filled with fun and laughter, along with a mystery for the hero and heroine to solve. Although a standalone, I feel it would increase your reading pleasure to read the proceeding books. This is the perfect book for a lazy afternoon in your favorite chair. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
