really Digital Marketing In A Week good job of creating enough of a screen to allow you to suspend your disbeliefThe main character is Trevor Irwin who s immensely unlikeable on first introduction He s an arrogant misogynistic know it all and that s just off the first page By the end of chapter one you could add cowardly and aggravating to his list of character traits The weird thing though is as he evolves as a person due to the events of the book herows on you as a character I feel fairly confident that of I were to continue this series I would come to fully embrace TrevThe storyline is both entertaining and easy to read but a little too sarcastic for my tastes It also rubs me as vulgar at times but not in a way that adds an element to the story Almost like vulgarity for it s own sake The majority of the supporting characters felt shallow and that also subtracted something from the experienceThere were things I really loved though Moseley s interpretations of werewolves felt fresh and interesting There is also an ancient animal spirit sidekick that I Le commerce des fourrures en occident a la fin du moyen-age (2 vol) greatly enjoyed I was reminded of several popular fantasy stories

Recommended this book to my friends on GR At time of rec 17Feb2019 the series is 7 volumes with 159 independent ratings with an average of 446 stars Take a pinch of the humour from Hot Fuzz a pinch of

Location Location DamnationTrevor or Trev depending on if you ve been on the receiving end of his snark or not is a real estate agent in Brackenford But suddenly he s seeing pulsating shadows and he could swear that sparrow is looking at him funny So begins the first book in a promising urban fantasy series set in the Midlands of the UK It s uite a pleasant change to have a British sense of humour at the fore though Trev s not afraid toet pretty salty in parts There s a pleasantly uirky set of local supernatural wildlife around the Get Up and Do It! ghouls who speak in Tabloid being my personal favourite along with some surprisingly normal humans There was the odd moment where the dialogueot a wee bit clunky or the plot was moved along by a very convenient coincidence but for a debut novel it was a strong and entertaining read Working as an estate agent in the town of Brackenford isn t the hardest job in the world just ask Trev Irwin He knows the market inside out house prices are steady and the only competition in the office is Barry who has all the wit and charm of a mouth ulcerBut there are other forces at work in Brackenford besides the unuenchable desire of

in it because it promised to be humorous and I m always looking for a book that can make me laugh I could also have possibly been drawn to it because we just happen to have our house on the market right now and have been looking for a new one for uite a few months It was an interesting coincidence that this book features real estate agents or estate agents as they are called in England Fortunately this book had me laughing immediately I loved all the snarky sarcasm I was interested in the story right away as well Unfortunately the story itself lost some steam somewhere in the middle It was still fun but the story itself lost some steam somewhere in the middle It was still fun but as entertaining as I was hoping it would be but I have heard that the series ets better so I ll stick it out for the next bookThe things I liked best about the book was the snarky sarcastic humor the characters Oscar Because who doesn t love a talking cat and Agatha I hope they continue to be featured prominently in the seriesReview also posted at Writings of a Reader Really liked it I had some minor pacing problem at the beginning and it suffered from being read at the same time as new favorites
