This book is the follow-up to Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom.

This is a second copy I picked up from BookCloseouts. I'm going to add this copy to my TBR and release or ring the other copy, which originally came from PaperBackSwap.

Book Description
What's a mother to do, when there are only so many hours in the day, and the fate of the world is in her hands?

Kate Conner was a retired demon hunter. Now, after fourteen years busting her tail as a suburban housewife, raising two kids, and supporting her husband's political ambitions, she's rejoined the workforce—and except for a few minions of evil, no one has a clue. She tries hard to keep her home and work lives separate—a good idea when your job involves random slaughter.

Between fending off demon attacks, trying to figure out why the mysterious new teacher at the high school seems so strangely familiar, and keeping a watchful eye on her daughter's growing infatuation with a surfer dude, Kate is the busiest—and most dangerous—soccer mom on the block...

In this follow-up to 2006's Carpe Demon, we return to San Diablo, California, a small quiet suburb outside Los Angeles, where Suburban housewife and Level Four Demon Hunter Kate Conner is on the job. On one hand, she's trying to keep house for her husband, teenage daughter, and toddler son, while on the other, she's hunting down a demon who just took over the body of an old man and escaped the old age home!

But Kate's up against more than she can handle when it turns out that the special guest appearing at the high school surf competition is a Demon himself... and her daughter Allie is right smack in the middle of the action. With the help of her best friend Laura, and what may well be the spirit of her dead husband, Kate takes on the Demon and still manages to get dinner on the table in time. ;)

I enjoyed this 2nd book in the series. Even though I don't particularly relate to the whole housewife/soccer mom mentality, I have several friends who are in that phase of their lives, so I can appreciate it. ;)

This book is reserved for CdnBlueRose and will be heading out to her shortly.
