Nicki Styx enjoyed her life where her worries were keeping up with fashion, her boyfriend and her vintage clothes store.  Now she still worries about them, but to quote a movie Ė she sees dead people.  This time Nicki is lead to an accident where one woman is severely injured.  The woman turns out to be not only her boyfriend Joeís soon to be ex but also Nickiís twin.

This leads Nicki to discover that she has family she never knew existed and a spooky old house.  While trying to deal with the unexpected entrance of her twin sister and more spirits, Nicki learns that the Devil himself has decided he wants her too.  Nicki, her boyfriend Joe, her best friend Evan and his partner Butch, all make the journey to discover Nickiís past and of course to defeat the Devil.

A Match Made in Hell pits Nicki against the Devil himself.  This time Nicki, Joe and friends not only have to deal with the family Nicki didnít know she had but also the Devil and some of his friends.  Joe has told Nicki that he was divorcing his wife who left him, but neither expected her to turn up injured or to be Nickiís twin.  The antics and mishaps that Nicki and Joe have to deal with had me enjoying a tale that could have been dark but instead was light and humorous.  A Match Made in Hell reminded me of that favorite movie you put in when you want something fun and feel good.  Of course Nicki and Joe made it through all the challenges thrown at them and were still together and a bit stronger for them.  Along with Evan and Butch who I just had to mention. 

A Match Made in Hell is the perfect book for people who want a book that shows the lighter side of paranormal.  While this is the second story in the series, I felt it could be read as a stand-alone.  However, if you fall for Nicki and company then you might just want to go back and read the other.
