For Roxanne McNally, being a grim reaper has never been easy. Now she hates her job more than usual, because she’s been charged with reaping the soul of a legend—werewolf Marty Andrews Flaherty. Marty, together with her equally iconic friends Nina and Wanda, are Rocky’s idols. To say she’s an OOPs fangirl is putting it mildly. No way is she willing to deal with eons of hate Tweets for taking the soul of a paranormal superstar. Reaping supernaturals isn’t even her gig. She’s strictly human-only. No. There must be some mistake with the list, and she’ll get to the bottom of it…if she can just ignore the distracting reappearance of a certain hunky doctor in her life.

Hudson Kahlil—frequently known as Dr. Sexypants among besotted patients and staff—could swear he knows Roxanne from somewhere. As a phoenix who’s regularly reincarnated with no previous knowledge of his past lives, he’s not surprised he can’t place her. Though he’d love to reacquaint himself…and he may get the chance, since they’re both temporarily staying at Marty Flaherty’s home, protecting her while racing to find an unknown threat.

Nina, Wanda and their assorted framily may be able to save Marty’s immortal soul from an enemy who’s plan is still unclear…but they can’t save Rocky from the backlash when her secret past connection to Hudson is finally revealed.


Dakota Cassidy brings the series back to the originally three members of OOPs in Marty’s Horrible, Terrible, Very Bad Day.  It’s very apparent in the first chapter why Marty is having such a horrible day, but the reasoning, the how, and the why all unfold as the story goes on.  Never fear OOPs fans, we still get a mystery and the extended family still help other paranormals. 

Just when you thought that the Accidental world had all the paranormals it could handle, Dakota Cassidy throws in a grim reaper and phoenix.  Dakota Cassidy puts her own twist on these characters and readers will be falling in love with them in no time.  

Roxanne McNally, the grim reaper, and Hudson Kahlil, the phoenix, play an integral role in helping Nina and Wanda keep Marty’s Horrible, Terrible, Very Bad Day from being even worse.  Their story unfolds as the mystery is worked through.  They are a delight on the page and add to the OOPs “framily” nicely.

This is a wonderful addition to the series, and I look forward to seeing how Roxanne and Hudson might make appearances in later books.
