ARC Review: Alien in the House - Gini Koch


Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini have learned the ins and outs of Washington politics, not to mention how to prevail in intergalactic war and foil dangerous plots. But, in the aftermath of Operation Destruction, the Gower girls’ powers are burned out, the entire A-C population has been “outed” as the aliens living on Earth that they are, and, worst of all, ACE is nowhere to be found.

Then murder and mayhem are served up at an important dinner party at the American Centaurion Embassy, and when the dust settles Alpha Team and the Diplomatic Corps have more problems than just a dead Congressman. Is there a single criminal mastermind—or multiple enemies—behind all the conspiracies that want Kitty dead and the A-Cs gone or co-opted to become the War Division?

My thoughts:
How does she do it? The craziness that must be Koch's brain, I just never know with this series. Who is the bad guy? How will it end, how will anything happen? But then that is why it's a fun ride.

So what did happen? Well Kitty is trying to find out why people are dying left and right. With her she has poofs, birds and the usual gang, and of course she makes new friends.

There is drama, shootings, death, smexy times, politics, wedding plans and a birthday party for Jamie to plan. Just another normal day in the life of Kitty Katt.

So this review was much better before I accidentally deleted it. Now I do not know what to say. Koch is just insane, all the plot threads here and there. I always wonder how she keeps track of things so that we in the end can find a murderer.

Conclusion:
Another fun adventure, and as always crazy in the best way.

Cover:
I like and dislike it. I like it cos it's cool, I dislike it cos you can't see the tiny pics if you just browse by.

Darlene said...

Uggggh, I hate when I write something good and it disappears into cyberspace. It really throws a person off. Anyhow this sounds like its a fun series and the cover is definitely different. Not sure if I like it or not.

I've never tried this series or this author before. I need to check this one out. And yes, I like the cover too, but there's a lot going on! Great review, sorry you lost your first draft (ugh, I hate when I lose a review after nearly finishing it—that's the worst!) :-)

You just never know with Gini do you. That is part of why I love her! Almost like she is writing and says, what the hell...and throws you for a corkscrew.
