about

What’s a girl to do when her date is D.O.A?

Angharad ‘Harry’ Russo is just your ordinary twenty-something, with one exception - she’s a witch with an out of the ordinary gift.  When her blind date goes sideways and she ends up face to face with a dead body, her life starts to go sideways too. 

Harry soon finds herself right in the middle of the mayhem, dealing with Cian Nash, a homicide detective that is as aggravating as he is sexy; the biggest, baddest vampire in town; and a parcel of pesky zombies that keep popping up everywhere.  It’s all connected to her date’s unfortunate demise, or is there more to it than meets the eye?

This is the first book in the Harry Russo Diaries.  It is a stand-alone adventure with no cliffhanger. Intended for a mature audience.

Lisa Emme is a Canadian who proudly ends her ABC's with 'zed'. A self-professed book-a-holic, she has spent the last few years trying to stem her book hoarding tendencies by writing her own stories and by avoiding the bargain table at the bookstore like the plague. A bit of a thrill seeker, Lisa has tried such death defying activitie...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! Thank you Lisa Emme for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review! I loved this story! It has all my favorite types of paranormal characters and Lisa has given these characters wonderful personalities! The story has a bit of everything; comedy, love, action and drama. I couldn't put it down and have read it twice already. It was an easy read with a great story line. I didn't want the story to end! I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Start I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I started reading it after supper and only put it down to put the kids to bed so that I could have more uninterrupted time with Harry and her friends. What a great narrator Harry is. I loved her voice. She's a bit innocent but still handles herself even when she gets into trouble, even when she's surrounded by a bunch of alpha males. I love how she went toe to toe with the big bad vampire and won (oh, sorry, spoiler). There is a potential love interest but it's on slow burn, but that's okay. It just makes me want to read more. I can't wait for the next one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Start to a New Series This is the first book in a trilogy, but if the rest are as good as this one, I hope it becomes a series. Harry is a fun narrator. Despite the darker elements, the story is funny and light, without being silly or campy. Harry really can hold her own, despite being surrounded by alpha males. There is a bit of sexual tension that hopefully will develop into more in the next book. It's a stand alone story but there is a hook at the end that will leave you wanting more. I practically read it in one sitting, it was that good.
