Review: Darker Days (Darker Agency #1) by Jus Accardo

Darker Days (The Darker Agency #1)
 
Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...

When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.

Seven deadly ones, in fact.

They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...

There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

Kat's Review
 
This is the first book I've read from this author, so I really had no idea what to expect. There seems to have been quite a bit of paranormal on my reading list the past little while, and this one is no exception, except that it puts a bit of a different twist on things. Jessie Darker and her mom are entrusted with capturing the human embodiments of the 7 deadly sins and locking them back up in the box from which they escaped. Oh, and they need to save the guy who's housing wrath, only the witch who put him there in the first place isn't being very cooperative.

 
I like books that don't take themselves too seriously when dealing with fun stuff like the 7 deadly sins, and I really liked this one. It's what a lighthearted YA Paranormal should be. Teen protagonist, supernatural love interest, a mystery to bee solved so they can be together. What more do you want?
 
Jessie is funny, and very observant. Her commentary had me cracking up. The plot was cute, if a bit predictable, but overall this was a fun book with a twist.
 
Rating: A Good Read
 
I liked it. It wasn't life changing, but it sets itself apart from the other books in the genre by incorporating something new.
 
I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher.
