Last book read in 2007

This book is just as bonkers as the first book as Brenda and Effie settle down in Buffy The Vampire Slayer style on the edge of a hell mouth in deepest darkest Whitby. I don't want to give too much away, except to say that even more shenanigans ensue as they deal with the various beings and entities drawn in by the hell mouth. I love how Magrs mixes up the genres, horror, fantasy, detective fiction all take their turn in this fun book. Although I enjoyed this book, I have to say that on balance think that the first book is better than this one. But I really want to find out just what is going on at the Christmas Hotel so will definitely read the next instalment when it comes out.

I've just picked the first one up from the library and as I loved "Something Borrowed' if you think the first is better I'm really looking forward to it.

Paul Magrs - he's edited that CW book I have staring at me from the bookcase - must be good then, he knows what he's talking about!
