I must be honest, I have read novels prior to this one with a very similar premise that I was completely engulfed by the characters within those pages, and was pleasantly surprised to find that Clara and Zee as we have come to know him as, also hit the mark for me. There is something to be said for two completely different people (and demons in this case,) that want to build each other up, and not tear each other down, despite their differences and goals/desires. I quite enjoyed the way that this story is told via third person narrative, though allows the reader to feel the emotions and connect with both main characters and understand the supporting characters as well. Personally, I think my quaint little hometown is in dire need of a shop like The Sweet Spot, as I not only could picture it in my mind but found myself craving home baked goods throughout this adventure.
Overall, the world building, along with the twists and turns throughout the novel, and the development of Clara and Beelzebub (Zee,) had me turning each page in anticipation of what was to come next. It didn’t take me long to get through this novel, and I formed an attachment to those within these pages. I very much enjoyed the authors writing styles and commend them on their creativity when it came to mixing it up a bit! I was on the edge of my seat during the last little bit, practically yelling as I devoured the last few chapters. Overall, a fantastic getaway from reality, and I will be returning for more! Highly recommend.
