really liked it

Truly humorous novels are a rare and good thing to find, and a story about a young couple who start to worship a randy, raccoon-headed god of luck fits.

The premise is that in this world, gods have always been with us. Sometimes they sleep with mortals or ruin their lives, sometimes the mortals curry favor, and sometimes they have their own issues. Phil and Teri never wanted a god, but when Phil gets passed over for a promotion for the second time, they decide to find one on the internet. Their god turns out to be a freeloading houseguest who invites his mooching immortal friends over. When you bring in the goddess of heartbreak and a god of distruction, things get crazy.

Since I started and didn't finish a handful of books this month, the fact that I read quickly to the end is testament that it can hold the attention of even a distracted reader.
