I laughed, I cried, and I smiled. “The Accidental Human” is Dakota Cassidy’s final novel in her ‘Accidental’ series and it’s a great ending to a series that combines heaping doses of humor, hot sex, and paranormal happily ever afters.
Wanda is the peacemaker of her two friends. They all met when they signed up to sell Bobbie-Sue cosmetics. Nina, the brash one, was accidentally made a vampire; and Marty, the go-getter, was accidentally bitten by a werewolf. So now Wanda is the lone human who still spends her time refereeing between the two others in their crazy trio. Wanda still sells Bobbie-Sue, she even got a car, and she credits her lists for helping her make all the important decisions and keep her life on track. But the one thing that never came up in her lists is what to do if you’re diagnosed with a terminal disease. And wouldn’t you know it, fate picks NOW to have her meet the man of her (and pretty much anyone’s) dreams. What to do? Make a list! And make having wild and fantastic sex her number one ‘to do’ before she dies.
Even with all the humor, the tight bond between these three women shines through in their stories. Wanda’s hopes and fears are entirely realistic, even when set in Cassidy’s crazy paranormal world. I want to have drinks with these three…and trash men while we do it. Then go home and do the ‘wild thing’ with my hubby and plan to meet again next week to out-brag the others!
The author threw in a couple of twists that I wasn’t expecting, and they certainly increased my enjoyment of her story. I really did laugh out loud, and I really did cry (my hubby wanted to know if I was OK) as I read about Wanda’s choices and the decisions she had to make. The ending was surprising and wonderful and all three of these books are headed for my groaning keeper shelf.
