Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (Speak of the Devil #3)
by Patricia Eimer
Not Even Death Keeps a Good Demoness Down
There’s never an end to the crazy when you’re demon spawn. Not that Faith Bettincourt’s complaining. She’s been patching things up with her angelic on-again off-again boyfriend, Matt, and her best-friend-turned-sister-in-law is soon giving birth to the Anti-Christ Part Deux. Oh, and Faith is saving kids from Death in her pediatric unit one soul at a time. Life is good.
Until Faith accidentally runs over the Angel of Death and is forced to take his place. Now she’s taking lives instead of saving them. Which is kind of a problem when you’re a nurse. As if that weren’t bad enough, she is suddenly thrust into the worst scenario of them all--Matt’s ex Brenda is back, and she’s brought the Apocalypse with her.
Faith’s not about to give up the world...or her man. But when the chips are down, what’s a demoness supposed to do? Besides take matters into her own hands, of course.
Faith is staying pretty busy. She is a demon working as a nurse in a hospital and loves helping people. She is trying to work things out with her angelic boyfriend Matt and help her sister in law prepare for the birth of her child who is the anti christ two. Faith is happy and when she accidentally runs over the Angel of Death she is horrified to find she is now the angel of death and must be the head of the reapers. She never wanted to take lives only save them and she can't touch anyone without killing them. On top of that the Apocalypse seems to be happening and Faith will have to do her best to stop it.
I haven't read the other books in this series but after some confusion at first I figured things out. Faith may be a demon but she really only wants to help people. She has to figure out if she really wants to be with Matt and how much she wants to be out of the Angel of Death job. She has so much going on but she still does a good job trying to take control of things. There is tons of action and intrigue as the Apocalypse is beginning and they have to stop it. There is also lots of humor as several times you will get several laughs while reading. I enjoyed seeing all the characters and learning about them. I would recommend reading the first two so there isn't any confusion but this looks like a good paranormal series that I will be looking more into.
