With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.
Charley's been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he’s near, but naturally he swears he’s fine.
While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they’ve accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….

Kind of enjoyable. The snark, as always is there, but this story is a little convoluted. I feel sorry for Charley, this chick just can’t get a break, bad and worse are always happening to her. This so far is my least favorite of the series. Charley has to live in a old convent (sacred ground), has...
Re-Read:March 21 - March 25 2018Oh Charley, even on sacred ground you can get into so much mischief. I’m glad I am doing a re-read. I had completely forgotten the drama that surrounded BEP’s birth. I still experienced a wealth of heartache at the end of the book. I knew it was coming but it still di...
By far my favorite book from this series. I am extremely happy that Charley was 8 months preggers at the start of this book. I love Charley. I love her humor but 8 months of her pregnant might have been a bit much for me to handle. Plus she can't really kick that much ass when she's pregnant and whi...
Charley is heavily pregnant and ready to give birth any day now to Beep, the prophesised daughter who will save the world. Until then she has to hide in their new home on hallowed ground so the 12 Hellhounds don’t find her and kill her Confining Charley is… an interesting experience for everyone. ...
I was so disappointed with this book and I think that's because I'm excited when I sit and open up one of the author's books, maybe too excited. The jokes were wearing a little thin. But got through that. The ending is what disappointed me. A lot cliche. I'm just hoping this isn't a trend. :( 2-1/2 ...
