If you aren’t much of a housekeeper, like me, you will want to read Jayne Castle’s Deception Cove for the dust bunnies alone. No, not the kind that are under your furniture. The dust bunnies in this futuristic world are sort of a cross between a pet and a guard.
Jayne Ann Krentz, in this one of her three personas, adds a heroine who remains calm even under attack by mutant insects and a hero who has a reason for wearing mirrored sunglasses besides looking cool. The threesome, Alice, Drake, and Houdini (the dust bunny) make an effective team. Paranormal and common sense save the day.
