Review: Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks by Cara Lockwood

Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks

Rachel Farnsworth's husband goes missing at the worst time. It's her son's 1st birthday and Rachel just witnessed Cassidy breathing fire. But that's not the only bad news. It turns out her missing husband was taken over by a demon, 5 years ago! So that makes Cassidy half demon and it's a bitter pill for Rachel to swallow.

With the help of fallen angel/bounty hunter Sam, Rachel is on her deadbeat demon husband's trail but he's been keeping a thousand-year-old secret so Sam and Rachel are not the only ones on the hunt.

This book was a fast, fun read. Rachel is a gold mine of wit and sass all rolled up into a Texas firecracker. Plus there are plenty of well developed secondary characters that make this book a laugh riot. There are two "watcher angels" that taunt each other relentlessly. Another fallen angel named Azazel that fancies himself a ladies man, an immortal bad girl named Casiphia that holds a grudge against Sam when she should be thanking him and many, many more.

Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks is book two in the Devil Went Down to Dogwood (Rachel's hometown) series but it definitely stands alone as I have not yet read the first book, Every Demon Has His Day, but I will be fixing that soon. I recommend this one for anyone who loves light paranormals.
