Review; Demons, Well-Seasoned (The Secret Spice Cafe #3) by Patricia V. Davis
Description from Goodreads
Dare to Believe in Your Power…
A long-lost grandmother. A stay-at-home mom. A comic book fan. A five-year-old girl with a star-shaped birthmark. And nine more.
The cast is bigger, the stakes are higher. When Sarita’s grandmother, a Vodou priestess, foresees a terrible evil, Cynthia, Jane, Angela, and Rohini reunite on a heart-rending mission to save all that’s precious to them, including the iconic ship, the RMS Queen Mary. They cannot do it alone—the priestess tells them there must be “thirteen on the night of the thirteenth moon” in this life-or-death pursuit. Yet, can she be trusted?
Spiced with history and the supernatural, Demons, Well-Seasoned takes us from 1930s Glasgow, to New Orleans and Harlem in the 1950s, to present day southern California, and back again, on a metaphysical voyage that is both exhilarating and poignant. But before you embark upon this final sail with the denizens of The Secret Spice, be warned: expect to lose sleep, and keep tissues at hand. These valiant characters might just stay with you long after their story comes to a close.
Don’t miss Cooking for Ghosts, and Spells & Oregano, Books I and II in The Secret Spice Café Trilogy. The Secret Spice Cafe Trilogy is an Official Pulpwood Queens Book Club Selection.
My Thoughts on the BookDemons, Well-Seasoned is such an amazing book. The characters are well developed, the storytelling just wonderful, the plot is fast-paced and engaging. I also really loved Rosemary, Alana and Luca in this book. Too bad this was the final book in this trilogy, because I wanted to continue my "friendship" with all the characters on board Queen Mary, both the living and the ghostly ones.
Also, the song "We'll Meet Again" is mentioned a couple of times in the novel and for those who are curious, here's the D-Day Darlings' version of it.
