"Weddings are hell..."

To make this an enjoyable read, I suggest you read Luck of the Devil (Speak of the Devil) first so you don't have to much trouble figuring out who is who and what is what. Although I have to admit, Ms Eimer did a wonderful job of giving just enough back-story without making it boring for those who may have just finished the last book.

With this second entry in the "Speak of the Devil" series, we find our favorite daughter of the Devil helping to put together two weddings, fixing the missing drug problem from the last book, dealing with her ex-fiancé Dan who is back and trying to find her lost brother Tolliver. Oh and she is also helping out Matt's old girlfriend Brenda, who has conveniently shown up and is now staying on Faith's couch. In addition to all of that, just to add a little more stress to the days before the weddings, Faith also has to take care of the Angale and Matt's evil mother, all who are trying to get to Matt to sacrifice him.

Wow, that is a hell of a list of things to do before two weddings. And let's face it, for Faith to be a bridesmaid in her mother's wedding, and to wear the hideous dress her mother has picked out is a torture worse than Purgatory!

There are so many wonderful sub story-lines going on and some people acting out of character ,that I am afraid to make this too spoilerish so I'll leave it up to you to hunt them down!

Thankfully, this book continues with the fast pacing and wonderful characters that the first book had. We still have the clever plotting and nice tight writing that makes this another fun read. I loved it that there were plenty of cool surprises to keep things real interesting (Malachi for one and Harold for another) I am so glad I had both books with me so I could go right from the first one directly into the second one. I just wish that the third (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead) was out already!
