Death and Relaxation [Dramatized Adaptation]: Ordinary Magic, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Original recording
|New from||Used from|
Monsters, gods, and mayhem....
Police Chief Delaney Reed can handle the Valkyries, werewolves, gill-men and other paranormal creatures who call the small beach town of Ordinary, Oregon their home. It’s the vacationing gods who keep her up at night.
With the famous rhubarb festival right around the corner, small-town tensions, tempers, and godly tantrums are at an all-time high. The last thing Delaney needs is her ex-boyfriend reappearing just when she's finally caught the attention of Ryder Bailey, the one man she should never love.
No, scratch that. The actual last thing she needs is a dead body washing ashore, especially since the dead body is a god.
Catching a murderer, wrestling a god power, and re-scheduling the apocalypse? Just another day on the job in Ordinary. Falling in love with her childhood friend while trying to keep the secrets of her town secret? That’s gonna take some work.

This isn’t a laugh out load book, or have blatent sex scenes. But is well paced, with lots of action, relationships and quirkiness.
I highly recommend it.
Delaney is complex, she is still recovering after the death of her father which happened a year ago and then the subsequent abandonment by her boyfriend. But she is a fighter and is capable of many great things. One of which, apparently is not much sleep. Kudos to her on that one.
Delaney is fierce but she is no law breaking heroine, in fact she abides by the letter of the law. Something one must do when they are the Chief of Police. Not only is Delaney the chief of police for Ordinary but she is also the law and peacekeeper for the extra-ordinary citizens vacationing in the quaint little town. But quaint does not mean quiet and when a god washes up dead, Delaney must use all her talent and sleep deprived mind to find the killer and restore order.
This is a fun quick read with interesting characters and a good plot. Well worth a read.
There's no surprises and nothing to keep you awake at night, but an easily readable novel that remains true to its cozy mystery genre.

Overall a nice/ok-ish light mystery read, with a dash of romance and humour, I may read book 2 at some point to see what happens next, but no driving urge to do so presently.
99p on amazon 20th December 2019 .
The writing is good, description engaging, characters stereotypical but fleshed out enough to say 3D at least, the plot and narrative pace are a twist more interesting than most of the genre. I enjoyed myself but it's hardly deep or terribly intelligent stuff. Original enough to intrigue, not enough to get me into a whole series. No F-Bombs (discrete intercourse) and no gratuitous gore, so OK for younger audiences.
Go for it, see what you think.
