Mini Review--Something Wikkid This Way Comes by Nicole Peeler

Capitola, Moo, and Shar are the halfling ladies of Triptych: supernatural private investigators who get paid to clean up paranormal messes.

Normally Cappie doesn't take human cases, but who can resist a priest, missing Catholic school girls, and a creature that may or may not be the Prince of Darkness?

A story set in the world of Nicole Peeler's Jane True series.

Something Wikkid This Way Comes is yet another fabulous novella, this time by the lovely Nicole Peeler! While we don't get to see  our fave heroine Jane, we do get to see more of her world of supernatural peeps!

It's been awhile since I read the last Jane True book, so I can't remember if all these ladies were in it, I think they might have been, but my memory is just really fuzzy. Regardless it was quite fun!

We still get some of the same snark that we get from Jane and crew! Cappie, Moo and Shar are quite the trio. And when they are asked to look into a case at a high school for girls, where girls have been going missing they decide to take it since there seems to be some Satanic cult action going on as well!

The mystery itself was pretty good, I kind of had an eye on the who-done-it, but there was still oh so much more that I was missing to the case! All three go undercover at the school in order to find out who the bad guy might be and all. 

There were some definite laughs along the way! At some points it seemed a little slow, but it was only because the girls didn't have many leads, but once they did get one, it took them to the rest of the mystery!

My fave part was the very end when there was a lovely Scooby-Doo reference! Kudos to Nicole for that!! I loved it! The trio's friendship has some real strong bonds and this is evident throughout the story and I liked that. It made them seem human even though not one them truly is!

Overall rating 4/5 stars
