REVIEW for Freudian Slip


Once again, a huge thank you goes out to Adam at Harlequin!
TITLE: Freudian Slip
AUTHOR: Erica Orloff
GENRE: Chick Lit
RATING: 3 Stars
I am a fan of Erika Orloff - she is one of my favorite chick lit authors. I was very excited to read Freudian Slip, but was a little put off when I discovered that it was not her usual type of book. Unfortunately, I am not much into the paranormal - although I have to say that this one was hilarious and not your usual "highly serious" paranormal stuff. So, I thought I would give it a chance.
The main storyline is actually pretty interesting. Shock Jock Julian Shaw is shot and realizes that he is now dead - he meets his grandmother at the pearly gates as well as a demon with a deal. Julian is now responsible for Katie Darby. If Julian can help Katie, then maybe he can prove that he is, indeed, a good guy! Indeed, Katie is going through some rough times and apparently needs a guardian angel - even if she does not think she does. Many facets of this book were interesting to me. The concept of Higher Powers (guides), the belief that there is someone watching over you! if only you will let go and let things run their course. This book was also hilarious! Julian is really clueless as a guide and manages to spook instead of inspire for the most part!!! I also thoroughly enjoyed the (not so obvious at times) serious looks at the spiritual side of life - this was a nice touch.
However, having said all of this, I still prefer my books to be grounded in the day to day and not so much in the "other world" unless I am reading a spiritual book and not a novel. So, for this reason, I am on the fence about this particular one.

Bummer you didn't like this book. I probably still will check it out.
