I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn't imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I'd seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no? After all, I've always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain. Don't get me wrong, I like helping people--and non-people. But this ability has turned me into a gourmet feast for an incubus, a demon that feeds off emotional energy. Now, brides are dropping dead all over town, and my home has become a safe house for the supernatural. I must learn to focus my powers and defeat the demon before he snacks on another innocent woman and comes looking for the main course...

What a nice surprise Monster In My Closet was! I loved the mix of adventure and quirky sense of humor. Zoey has quickly become one of my favorite heroines ever!
I mean, how could she not since the first glimpse we get of her she is ready to protect herself with nothing less than a toilet brush. Not to mention her utter geekiness and over-the-top-but-lovable sense of style.
Monster In My Closet gives us a delightful host of side characters that stole my heart. We get not only the closet monster Maurice and the awesome brownie Molly, but also a hag, a skunk ape, a reaper, an incubus, a pygmy dragon and many more fascinating creatures.
Zoey is a wedding planner and an empath that stumbles into a Hidden world she had never imagined existed. Not only that, her mother was also aware of that world and her disappearance when Zoey was 8 years old, becomes an even bigger mystery.
There is a little bit of romance, but enough to let us know that the seed has been planted and we should expect more.
