Add in the main character Lili being an idiot who fumbles her way through the whole story and completely fails to bridge the two aspects and things just don't mesh well.

Dark paranormals are not my cup of tea ... along comes Linda Wisdom to lighten up the genre! Wisdom's photo on her publisher's website makes it clear that she is having fun and the reader will, too! Wisdom delivered both the laughter and the love in A DEMON DOES IT BETTER. The laughter is obvious - her paranormal characters are zany rather than scary. The...more
This book is about Lilianna, Lili for short. Lili is one of the witches banned from the Academy in 1313 (along with Jazz, Blaire, Thea and some others). She is a healer and a doctor – not to mention a very powerful witch. She has just begun a new job at Crying Souls hospital. S...more
I haven't read the first in this series, but it didn't seem to be a problem.
A Demon Does it Better is about Lili, a witch with strong healing powers who starts working at a preternatural hospital. While Lili is intent on treating patients, she also wants to find out why some nurses are mysteriously disappearing from the hospital. While treating patients in the 'mentally dangerous' ward, Lili meets Jared, a super sexy shadow demon that doesn't se...more

On to the review.
For the most part I really like this book. I know Lili and Jared was going to be good together right from their first face to face meeting. The plot was really unexpected in a good way. I wasn't expecting Jared's circumstances to be what they were (trying no to give anything away). One thing...more
Unlike other reviewers, I wasn't mad keen on Cleo, the former queen of Egypt now reincarnated as a cat, but she did have some really funny stand out moments.
I've also found the plots a bit lacking wi...more
As a powerful witch-healer, Doctor Lili Carter knows she is uniquely qualified to get a job at Crying Souls Hospital and try to figure out what happened to her good friend Sera. A new nurse at the hospital, Sera had been excited about her job. She and Lili had communicated almost every day, Sera trying to talk Lili into transferring and working there with her.
Then the calls and mail stopped. Abruptly.
When Lili got concerned and called the hospital after not hearing from her fri...more
I just wasn’t interested in the protagonist, Lili, at all. There wasn’t any kind of emotional connection between...more

Lili is searching for a witch friend that just “disappeared” from the hospital she was working at, but what she finds is a demon in the dungeon below…
Ms. Wisdom makes her heroine a witch who heals and nurtures her friendships. Lili is kind, will defend her patients and friends to the death, and hasn’t had a love for a long time. The author really caught my attention with her demented demon. He’s a hunk that went a bit crazy from being...more
Lili is a 700 year old witch who has healing abilities. She decides to go back to work as a doctor at Crying Souls hospital when her friend Sera comes up missing while working there.
Jared is a demon who has been locked up in an asylum beneath the hospital by a doctor who says that he is very dangerous. He's been a "guest" in this prison cell for more then 100 years and has suffered through his share of abuse and degradation...more
This is the newest in the series by Linda Wisdom. This time the witch is a doctor and she lives with a cat named Cleo, short for Cleopatra with a love of catnip wine. I had no problem visualizing the Crying Souls Hospital and it's patients.

Although, to be honest, when I started writing this review, I thought this was the start of yet another series spin-off. It'll be interesting to see where Wisdom takes us.
Whoa, Wisdom really sets up an intricate story here. The basics are a bit cliched, but it's the detail and where Wisdom takes us that makes t...more
Overall, A Demon Does It Better was another great novel by Linda Wisdom and I’m eagerly awaiting to see who we’ll get to see next. For those who have read the series, we still have no clue exac...more
Book two in Linda Wisdom’s series about demons was a pleasant surprise. I wasn’t expecting much, but boy did she deliver a story unlike any I’ve read...more
A DEMON DOES IT BETTER takes place at Crying Souls Hospital where magical beings come to be healed. Much of the comedy in this book came from the antics, patients, and hospital staff at this ‘magical being-only’ hospital. The comedic moments were necessary to balance some of the disturbing and intense events which occurred in the prison-like hospital ward. While Lili tried to unravel the mystery of several disappearances at Crying Souls, the one mystery...more
It becomes quite clear that Jared is not insane as he once was and...more
Lili Carter is a witch and her speciality is healing, she has just re-taken a position at Crying Souls Hospital run by the elusive Dr Mortimer whose speciality is the mentally ill. Lili isn’t there just to do her job, she is there to find out what happened to her friend Sera who went missing a while ago and no one has seen her since. What she finds when she starts working in the ‘dungeon’ is no less than barbaric but she is determined to change things, for the better. When she is specifically...more
I adored Maggie's in-your-face personality in Demons are a Girl's Best Friend and expected there to be another similar kick ass character in this second installment. Regrettably, Lili didn't quite live up to my expectations. The first book was action packed while as this one is all about the romance and the main protagonist is a healer instead of a fighter. Two very different stories. I found A Demon Does it Better to be a bit of a letdown after such a solid kickoff to th...more
My witch series has also been optioned to be shopped around as a TV series or movie. So here's hoping!
