Review: The Lost Souls Dating Agency
The Lost Souls Dating Agency by Suneeti Rekhari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was a really interesting take on YA paranormal romance. It manages to throw a college girl into the supernatural world in a completely unique way.
Shalini grew up in India and was happy being raised by her adoptive dad until college time rolled around. She decided to spread her wings and go to Australia. Everything appears to be going well until her dad misses their weekly call. Shalini finds herself the recipient of an inheritance (based on her dad's instructions) that gives her a bunch of money and a creepy warehouse. Normal people might wait a little while before acting on these gifts, but Shalini won't be slowed down. She fixes up the warehouse and starts brainstorming what type of business she could run out of there. Pointed in a strange direction by a mysteriously appearing newspaper, she decides to open a supernatural dating agency. Weird? Yeah - but somehow it works.
Shalini takes on a few cases, each of which get a few chapters to run their course. Overall, she is a pretty successful matchmaker, even though she knows very little about her target demographic. This book is clearly the beginning of what could be a fun series. YA paranormal romances tend to follow a specific formula, but this really gives us something unique in the genre.
