Mary Alice Brannigan doesn't believe in the supernatural. Nor does she expect to find that Dreamland, the decaying amusement park she's been hired to restore, is a prison for the five Untouchables, the most powerful demons in the history of the world. Plus, there's a guy she's falling hard for-and there's something about him that's not quite right.
But rocky romances and demented demons aren't the only problems in Dreamland: Mab's also coping with a crooked politician, a supernatural raven, a secret government agency, an inexperienced sorceress, an unsettling inheritance, and some mind-boggling revelations from her past. As her personal demons wreck her newfound relationship and real demons wreck the park, Mab faces down immortal evil and discovers what everybody who's ever been to an amusement park knows: The end of the ride is always the wildest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit different but worth reading This is book is a bit strange but it is still Cruise - so it is tender, romantic and funny and worth the time to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good! I liked this book. It kept me entertained. It wasn't spectacular, but I still enjoyed it well enough. I also liked the romance ;)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Im disapointed I'm a huge Crusie fan, I have read and reread most of her books multiple times and LOVE them. She is my go to. However, I've owned this book for years now and have tried to read it a bunch of times but I just can't get past the first couple chapters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wild Ride This is a great book. It's a bit different from Crusie's norm, but still has her trademark snark.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely far-fetched, even for Crusie As usual for a Crusie/Mayer novel, Wild Ride has romance, humour, suspense, and commandos (Mayer's contribution). This time, throw in a special government team investigating anything having to do the unknown, creepy clowns that seemingly come to life, and fortune telling machines that get a little too personal and you have a rather wacky book. Unfortunately, it also falls a little flat, kind of like the kiddie rollercoaster compared to the monster coaster at Six Flags. It ain't no 'Agnes and the Hitman' that's for sure. 2011-052

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hit and miss I think this book could have been alot better if more thought hd been put into it. Collaborations are notorius for being rich with plotholes and conflicting point of views, and this book is no exception. There are alot of plotholes left undone, and the endind was predictable and disappointing. All in all, it's worth a read, but not a purchase.

Editorial Reviews

"Fabulous fun." -Booklist (Starred review; a Top-Ten Romance of the Year) on AGNES AND THE HITMAN"Wildly entertaining." -Seattle Times on AGNES AND THE HITMAN"A comic caper and raucous romance...laugh-out-loud funny...a fun ride." -Kirkus Reviews on AGNES AND THE HITMAN"Wickedly funny." -Cincinatti Enquirer on AGNES AND THE HITMAN"A bubbly novel with amusing banter and.moments of poignancy." -Publishers Weekly"Bless the day that Crusie and Mayer sat down to chat, for this collaboration is inspired!" -Romantic Times BOOKreviews (Top Pick) on DON'T LOOK DOWN"Crusie + Mayer = a great time. Don't miss it." -BookPage on DON'T LOOK DOWN"Noted romance/chick-lit author Crusie (Bet Me) and adventure author Mayer (Z: A Dave Reilly Novel) team up [and] the writing is seamless." -Library Journal on DON'T LOOK DOWN"The two writers/two viewpoints style lends itself to humor, and the authors don't stint on fast-paced action and complication." -Tampa Tribune on DON'T LOOK DOWN"It's light; it's witty; it's a page-turner. It's romantic, in a he-man/she-modern-woman manner." -The State (South Carolina) on DON'T LOOK DOWN"Combines wit, romance, and movie-quality action in one fast-paced book." -News and Sentinel (Parkesburg, WV) on DON'T LOOK DOWN"Plenty of big guns, helicopters.and light repartee.all in good fun. Readers will be happy to get a bit damp." -Publishers Weekly on DON'T LOOK DOWN"Think Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie True Lies." -Georgia Library Quarterly on DON'T LOOK DOWN"This first collaboration between bestselling romance writer Crusie and adventure-thriller writer Mayer is a rare delight. Mayer's delectably dry sense of humor perfectly complements Crusie's brand of sharp wit, and together the two have cooked up a sexy, sassy, and smart combination of romance and suspense that is simply irresistible." -Booklist on DON'T LOOK DOWN
