    I have to say that I'm getting pleasantly surprised by this series. I had originally expected it to be just another murder mystery series with a supernatural gimmick, but occasionally during the book it had touches of urban fantasy. This book has to be one of the better ones I've read in this genre recently, for more than one reason. (I'll explain why later in the review.) This book picks up about a year after the events in the previous book. Business has been booming for Sadie, especially since I have to say that I'm getting pleasantly surprised by this series.

This book has to be one of the better ones I've read in this genre recently, for more than one reason. (I'll explain why later in the review.) This book picks up about a year after the events in the previous book. Business has been booming for Sadie, especially since one of her fellow crime scene cleaners had to go away, leaving Sadie to handle his business while he is gone. If that's not enough to frazzle a girl's nerves, she's also got to deal with her new employee constantly flirting with Zack & the discovery of the leftovers of a gruesome satanic ritual at what should have been a regular meth lab clean. Unfortunately Sophie's stepped into the middle of a situation that has not only put herself in danger, but also her family as she's chased down by motorcycle riding gang members with a score to settle. I have to say, I enjoyed this book. It was a little shorter than I'd expected, for how much is actually dealt with in the book. A lot of plot elements introduced in the first book are completed in this book, which I really like. There were a few things introduced in this book, such as the evil forces at the meth lab that could make for intriguing new plot lines in future books. I liked that the book jumped forwards in time, although I have to admit that I felt like I'd missed something during some parts of the book. (SPOILER) We're told that Sadie & Zack hooked up shortly after the events in the first book, but we didn't get any of that in the previous book & I sort of felt like I must have missed a short story or a book in the series. I was a little disappointed that it was just a "hey, this happened while the audience's back was turned" type of thing. It didn't ruin the book by any means, but it sort of interrupted the flow of the book for me when I first read it. I can definitely recommend this to fans of the first book & I can also safely say that this will be something that I'll re-read in the future. The idea of the series is fun & I like that Roberts is actually trying to move the plot along rather than take certain plot elements at a snail's pace.

    "Devil May Ride" is book two in Wendy Roberts' mystery series , 'Ghost Dusters', about a woman who cleans death scenes and can see ghosts. I read "Remains of the Dead", the first book, and was curious to see where the author was headed with her characters. I'm pleased to say I enjoyed this book as much as the first one and now I've got the third one "Dead and Kicking" on my buy list for December 2009!

I read "Remains of the Dead", the first book, and was curious to see where the author was headed with her characters. I'm pleased to say I enjoyed this book as much as the first one and now I've got the third one "Dead and Kicking" on my buy list for December 2009! Sadie's business is picking up and she's especially busy right now as she's also helping out one of the local crime scene cleaners while they take care of 'family business'. Now, I figured out pretty quickly that this would have some meaning later and I'm happy to say I was right! Anyway, Sadie interacts with several different ghosts in this book. The first one is hilarious as it's the ghost of a Rottweiler who has no idea he's dead! Of course, neither does Sadie the first time she spots him and reading about her trying to figure out how to help a dog 'pass' is very amusing. But the ghost referred to in the title is a witch, and a nasty one at that. Now before all the Wiccans rise up and scream, let me say that there are also good Wiccans in this book, it's just that the ghost is a bad one! Thus the mystery begins and I won't give it away other than to say it involves: witches (good and bad), a baby, meth-labs, and at least two members of Sadie's cleaning team. The plot was enjoyable and lighthearted, even with the 'dark arts' thing going on. I loved that I got some more information about both Sadie and Zack AND a change in their relationship. There's also more information about Sadie's past and her dead brother and Zack's past and how he left the force. If you like your mysteries short-ish, fun, with a touch of romance, paranormal elements, and a fun cast of characters, I think you'd like "Devil May Ride" and Wendy Roberts 'Ghost Duster' series.

    I have enjoyed this series. The characters are easy to relate to and Sadie is a tough cookie with a big heart. As always, these books remain a quick read because Wendy Roberts ends each chapter with a mini-cliff hanger. Each time I say to myself, "I'll just read one chapter and then ..." I always end up reading all or most of these books in one sitting because I just can't leave it alone and have to find out what happens next.

Another thing Wendy Roberts has done in both books is leave me feeling Sadie's sadness in the end. Each time something touching and heartbreaking has happened, but Sadie pushes through knowing that her actions are necessary to move on with her life. I look forward to reading Dead and Kicking soon.

    Sadie and her partner Zack are having some issues. It's been a year since they had an intimate relationship and things are getting a little crazy. But when the stumble upon a baby who looks to have been through a satanic ritual things are not looking good for Sadie. Some bikers are after her, she doesn't trust her newest employee, and Zack and her are having some issues. This book was pretty good.

There was only two issues I had were with Zack and Sadie's relationship towards the end. I felt it happened too fast for the reader to really grasp that they had a relationship at all. And I hated the "cheating" scare. That was beyond annoying, and it frustrated me. Other than that I look forward to more in this series.

    Satanism, a motorcycle gang, and ghosts galore! Seriously, this woman is fast becoming my new favorite author. This series is so up my alley! They characters talk like my friends talk and I just love that. The main mystery is seedy and fascinating. We learn some really interesting back story and it seems to fit in well. Sometimes, when an author goes back to explain things, they can stop following their own rules or it will stick out in some way. That did NOT happen for me at all.

    Not too bad a follow-up to the first one in terms of plot and characterization. However, I found the sexual assault theme (two different guys pushing themselves on the narrator) a little disturbing, especially since it was implied that the narrator responded positively to being fondled, kissed, etc. without her consent. Ugh. I was glad one of the guys who did it turned out to be a "bad guy" in the revelations at the end, but when her love interest did it, yikes. Not cool, Ms. Roberts.

Before we simply had to deal with finding the killer of a silent ghost but this time there is a cult, a biker gang, missing money and the big reveal on how she gained her gift. There is a time jump between the previous novel and this one which I found a bit disconcerting– Sadie has become friends with the fortune teller Maeva who she had thought was a charlatan and her co-worker Zack has become emotionally distant after she had sex with him. Their new employee has is definitely attracted to him and this puts even further pressure on their non-relationship. I felt as if we had taken one step forward with Sadie and Zack at the end of the last book and then two giant steps back. Sadie remains heavily affected by the suicide of her brother but as the narrative unfolds, we learn what events that led to this fairly stable man taking the ultimate step. Sadie finds the leftovers of a satanic cult ritual involving a baby and a goat. She rescues the baby but meets the ghost of the mother who happily offered her child up to the cause. Sadie is unable to help this woman “find the light” and when she passes through her, feels like she has been “bathed in acid”. Fortunately the ghost’s eyes glow blood red so Sadie and the readers can tell that this is a baddie. She also manages to talk to a couple of deceased relatives which is quite cathartic – she doesn't need to hide her gift as they are already dead. The plot is a bit more substantial than the last novel, although Sadie still does stupid things. She shows up at a work site in the middle of nowhere by herself even though she knows she is being targeted by a biker gang. I wasn’t too surprised when the baddies were revealed but who they were was concealed a bit better than it was last time. Devil May Ride is an improvement on the first novel Remains of the Dead and I enjoyed the darker tone. Unfortunately the relationship aspect still needs development.

The danger with the meth clean-ups is that there are some really scary people who don't want anyone messing with their money making business. Sadie decides it is time to go through her brother's stuff, it has been 6 years since his suicide. Coincidentally, his former fiancee, Joy is back in town married to Tim, the owner of Onyx House a new age something or other. Also coincidentally, she finds a receipt in Brian's things for time spent at the Onyx House, which she later finds is a cover for something worse. She also finds out that she is an aunt...unfortunately, it is to the ghost child, Rhea that Joy never told her about...her brother's daughter. Seriously bad bikers who are after Sadie because some of their money from the meth business is missing. I am sad for Thuggy, her dead misunderstood uncle, Rhea who never had a chance, to name a few in this story. Then there is the extremely nasty, sadistic Witigo group with Joy's husband as their "master" sheesh. The bloody sicko sacrifices for their warped beliefs is the darkest for this series yet. Involving innocent babies and children made me sick.... wait a minute...in order for me to fully explain all that happened in this story I would have to write out the whole book! It is better for you to read it for yourself, you will enjoy it! I can't believe this wasn't a longer book with all the story lines covered!

To sweeten the pot she has taken on cleaning meth labs for the other crime scene clean up in Seattle because their owner is on vacation. But, he is not. There is a satanic cult at work, and a biker gang cooking meth, oh, and there’s a weird bed and breakfast that gives woo-woo workshops to new agers. AS everyone of the crimes begins to be related, and Sadie realizes her own pregnant sister is about to become part of their plot, the rise really begins. This story has more twists and turns than a Disney ride and more high spirited fun than Harry Potter. There is murder, mayhem and meth, ghosts and disgruntled bikers and several people who are not what they seem to be. Trying to figure out who to trust, how to keep from being killed and how to protect her sister as well as her own secrets while doing her job and figuring out if Zack is the man of her dreams or another nightmare will grab a hold and keep you reading for you life. Move over Janet Evanovich, Wendy Roberts has all the snark, quirky characters, and rollicking story of a very well written and hilarious mystery. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series, Dead and Kicking #3 in this wonderful, highly recommended series. Ms. Roberts has just become my favorite comedic mystery author.

She is also dealing with pressure from her mother to help with Dawn, her sister, baby shower.She meets a ghost/spirit that causes her harm,more than the icky feeling she normal feels when she comes in contact with them. Sadie finds out more about what caused her brother to commit suicide and how she ended up being able to see the dead after his death. For some reason I wasn't able to connect with Sadie this time around. Sadie seemed to do the same mistakes over and over again. She also seemed somewhat distant to me. She worried too much about how she was perceived that it did make her seem cold. At least that is how I felt but I will read the next book.

    4.5 stars rounded down because I'd never read it again. This was a really great way to look at Sadie's past while resolving her present. Really that is what I loved about the book.

I really liked how Scott was included and Sadie's aunt. We revisit old friends and I'm happy to see Sadie moving on to a living best friend. Also loved all the sister bonding in this book. And the number of talks with ghosts seemed to go up which I really liked! The logic didn't quite work for me about Joy and Brian and Tim. Things were definitely muddled as to how everyone knew each other and why no one suspected connections. I did like learning though how she obtained her ability and that did make sense to me. The mix-up with Zach was a little pat and definitely a reason not to drink! It was a little pat the way it was resolved but then again any worse and they couldn't have come back from that. BOTTOM LINE: Sadie talks to ghosts and solves murders and we have fun while we read it, what's not to like?

    Better than the first one in the series, because it went in a more dark direction than I expected. I am disappointed in the lack of character development for the sister; why isn't she more curious about her sisters' abilities. She's such an immature ninny that I cannot care about her. I read this series for the ghosts, not for the mysteries, nor for the romance elements. I don't think the author likes writing sex scenes because they are brief & boring.

Additionally, for a seemingly smart, modern woman, Sadie makes dumb decisions about men. The guilty parties can be seen a mile away, but there were a couple of surprises for me as to how some of the ghosts behaved and how Sadie perceived them. I'm not sure Roberts had a plan in mind when she started the books, because it seems to me that the "rules" she sets for how ghosts cross-over (to a good place), when or why they cannot, & how much power/control they have over the physical world the living inhabit, change in order to move the plot. Somehow the author needs to communicate better that Sadie is learning as she goes. It seems to switch back & forth as to whether her supernatural ability is a gift or a curse. I guess determining that is the ultimate mystery to solve over the course of the whole series.

Sadie and her sister, Dawn visit Joy, the woman their brother was planning on marrying 6 years prior to the setting of this book. Their brother, Brian committed suicide and Sadie has never been able to accept why he would have done that. That mystery is solved in this book as well. I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series.

The whole Brian thing was very sad, specially his daughter they never met. Joy, what a bitch! I loved Mauleen!

    Sadie owns a crime scene clean up crew and she also talks to the dead. She's very judgmental of others with these kinds of skills and woefully ill informed about others in the spiritual, magical, psychic communities. This causes her trouble.

Relationships become clearer and the bad are punished appropriately.

    Enjoyable storyline, but the casual sexism that the main character's love interest employs (and the MC's stereotypical reactions) annoyed me. Example: the MC has angered a local motorcycle gang through a series of misunderstandings. She is driving home and sees a dozen of them idling on her street and in her driveway. She is understandably afraid, immediately turns around and flees before they see her.

Example: the MC has angered a local motorcycle gang through a series of misunderstandings. She is driving home and sees a dozen of them idling on her street and in her driveway. She is understandably afraid, immediately turns around and flees before they see her. She calls her business partner (also love interest/ex-cop) and this is their conversation:She unwrapped a 3 Musketeers bar and took a bite. “Let me guess, you panicked and headed for the nearest chocolate bar.” She could hear the laughter in his voice. “It’s probably the kind of logic only a terrified woman understands,” Sadie said around a second bite of chocolate. That is just grating.

    This is the second of the Ghost Dusters Mystery series I've read, and I doubt I'll read more. They're okay, but I'm not particularly enamored of the characters, the plots, and the gross details of bio-cleaning crime scenes. The paranormal aspects along with a fairly good mystery and a decent vein of humor make this series enjoyable enough, but not stellar. I mean, if there was nothing else for me to read, I wouldn't mind. But that's not enough for me to seek out the rest of the series.

I happened to pick these two up as a reading friend at the library turned them in, and she said that they were decent. And they were. But I think I'm done. After I finish up Anne Perry's The Angel Court Affair, I'll probably return to my Pride and Prejudice variations as I continue writing my own Austenish tale....

    This was hanging by the edge of my seat skerry! This book was well written, fast paced, and it sure held my interest.....I even hid out while @ work for a few to read it! Sadie Novak is a house cleaner, but the kind you'd call if there was major body decomposition or a crime scene. Not only does she clean up the mess, the blood & guts, but she cleans up the non-corporal remains of those whose souls are left behind. Sadie can see & hear the ghosts and she helps them move on into the light. In this This was hanging by the edge of my seat skerry!

Whoooeeee......
