Title: Death and Relaxation
Series: Ordinary Magic #1
Author: Devon Monk
Rating: 

Police Chief Delaney Reed can handle the Valkyries, werewolves, gill-men and other paranormal creatures who call the small beach town of Ordinary, Oregon their home. It’s the vacationing gods who keep her up at night. 

With the famous Rhubarb Festival right around the corner, small-town tensions, tempers, and godly tantrums are at an all-time high. The last thing Delaney needs is her ex-boyfriend reappearing just when she's finally caught the attention of Ryder Bailey, the one man she should never love.

No, scratch that. The actual last thing she needs is a dead body washing ashore, especially since the dead body is a god.

Catching a murderer, wrestling a god power, and re-scheduling the apocalypse? Just another day on the job in Ordinary. Falling in love with her childhood friend while trying to keep the secrets of her town secret? That’s gonna take some work.

    

Delaney is the chief of police, but she also is the leader who allows the "gods" to visit their town. She has to help keep them in line, and make them sign contracts. But, when something horrible happens, she must do everything she can to find the culprit before it is too late for everyone. 

This book was okay. Delaney was interesting, but also a bit annoying as well. It was frustrating the way she seemed kind of dumb on certain things, yet smart on others. But the story line was interesting, and this plot was different as well. I liked it. I didn't really like how Ryder acted towards the end though. I'm not really sure I like him now. But over all I liked this book.
