Eileen Rendahl is the author of three Chick Lit books: DO ME, DO MY ROOTS (2004) which was a double Rita finalist and a National Readers Choice Finalist, BALANCING IN HIGH HEELS (2005) and most recently, UN-BRIDALED. As Downtown Press's Chick Lit with Heart girl, she strives in her novels to expose both the humor and pathos of life. Critics have said that her characters are "humorous, yet heartbreaking" as well as "funny and profound, endearing and absurd, outrageous and comforting, and very, very real" and that she puts them in "situations that at once make you laugh and make you a little sad".Eileen grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska, although she wasn't born there. She was born in Dayton, Ohio, but moved when she was four and who remembers anything from before they were four? Except she does remember she was born at the Good Samaritan Hospital across the street from Baskin Robbins because they sent her a coupon for a free ice cream cone every year until she was twelve. Eileen makes a point of remembering anything that has to do with ice cream. Or chocolate. Or champagne.After many moves (St. Louis, Boston, Chicago, Phoenix), many jobs (art gallery assistant, editorial assistant, copywriter, communications manager, graphic designer, ceramics studio slave) and a smattering of husbands (if you want the details on that, you will have to get her liquored up), she now writes and lives in Davis, California, with her two adorable children, her two annoying cats and one lovely man.

I loved this book! Melina was great and the book had a great plot. I enjoyed the surprises, and the twists along the way, along with the humor between the characters. I loved how the characters were introduced, and how they changed and developed along the way. Plus when you mix Martial Arts with a k...

As a paranormal messenger Melina Markowitz doesn't get paid. Nope it's some kind of destiny thing (dying at age three and being resuscitated will do that to a gal) so she works two dead-end jobs to make ends meet - mainly as a file clerk in the hospital but also as a karate instructor at her friend...

Had fun reading this one. It's not a heavy drama filled urban fantasy just perfect for the mood I've been in.

This book had a slow start for me and it took a long time to get into the story. Closer to a 2 for me, but giving an extra star for originality. I probably won't be reading book #2.
