The Last Donut Shop Of The Apocalypse
The Last Donut Shop of the Apocalypse - Nina Post

Like its predecessor, The Last Donut Shop of the Apocalypse is a lot of fun. Nothing complicated, but a fun bunch of characters, an absurd story and an urban fantasy that doesn't take itself too seriously. Two sisters, both Gorgons and owners of the two best Donut shops still standing in Pothole City, fight over a dispute, and Kelly, who now also happens to be the interim manager of Amenity Tower has to step in.

I won't write too much about it, for fear of spoiling the fun. But I found it a quick, fun and easy read, perfect to relax after a hard day's work.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The Last Condo Board Of The Apocalypse
The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse - Nina Post

This is one of the most absurd books I've read but I enjoyed it a lot.

Kelly hunts monsters and fallen angels for a living, but the job isn't the same any more and vampire hunting is the new best thing. When she takes a job to find a fallen angel in a large condo in Pothole City she does so in the most ridiculous disguises. Along the way she promotes several Cluck Snack products and meets a Condo board not only planning the next renovation but also the Apocalypse.

It is so weird, but so much fun. I can't really tell too much about it, because it won't make any sense unless you've read the book. The Single Purposes really stole my heart (some of them anyway). If you're looking for some rather absurd urban fantasy which is definitely different from the last thing you've read, give The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse a try.

I like the cover art
One Ghost Per Serving - Nina Post

I think this is more me than the author.  I can't take the all women all jealous bitter hags but for the guy's wife trope anymore.  I can't.

 

I will say outside of that in terms of writing it is professional.

Danger in Cat World - Nina Post

Danger in Cat World

Publication date: 04 February 2013
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Genre: Mystery / Suspense

A little bit about Nina Post:
Author of Contemporary Fiction since February 2012
Published 5 books so far
Nina's website: www.ninapost.com

Literary Agent: Curiosity Quills

Why did I choose this book/Source?
I chose this book as part of a Author Promotions Program I belong too. The write up sounded intriguing and I loved the cover.

What is the book about?
Detective Shawn Danger, the hardest-working homicide detective in Jamesville County and lives alone with his cat Comet. He loves his job and has the highest case solving record around. His commitment to his job barely leaves time to feed Comet, let alone worry about family frivolities or a love life.  

When Danger is assigned a new murder case of a reclusive paper heiress and her pet tortoise, nothing adds up when he begins collecting the evidence and looking at the suspects. The first strange thing that happens after he gets the new assignment and has assessed the scene for the first time, is dozens of cats start appearing in his house out of thin air, at a rapid rate - followed by strange video footage of himself in a similar, alternate universe. 

The further he probes into the investigation, the more strange things start happening, as he pieces everything together. From following up on leads for the case, tracking down missing employees, his amusing so-called dates with Sarah, (a suspect in the case who Danger has taken a liking too), and the rising number of cats in his apartment. Danger is a strong lead character that keeps you entertained. 

My Review:
I definitely enjoyed Nina Post's writing style and the witty sense of humour she brings to the table. The story is filled with combinations of mystery, witty dialogue, a touch of fantasy and quirky, lovable characters. 
I was quite confused with all the strange events and random point of view changes, and battled to follow where the story was going in the beginning, other than trying to solve a murder case. I did not take to the story line immediately, but I did take to the main character, his sense of humour and interactions with Sarah. 

With that said, I still needed to keep on reading to figure out where the story was going. All in all, a reasonable read from a brilliant writer.
