Nancy Newman's Bad Man. Bad Daddy? depicts a protagonist whose life takes a dramatic turn when she finds out the truth about both her family and the spirit world. Quinn O’Reilly wants to pursue a relationship with an irresistible police officer but wonders if he would have a problem with the fact that she hears ghosts and interacts with the afterlife. Having a girlfriend whose father is a New York City mob boss would also be considered problematic for a policeman. Quinn's link to the afterlife is exploited by Gina - a ghost who needs her to save her children's souls in the afterlife as the children didn't deserve their unfortunate fate. In the physical world, Quinn deals with another challenge: Jackie Brown wants control of the Mafia and will not hesitate to harm Quinn or her loved ones to get it. Will Quinn's world ever stop spiraling downward?
Nancy Newman uses spine-chilling, attention-grabbing elements like ghosts and the Mafia to inspire the type of fear that makes you appreciate that your life is not as unbelievably wild and dangerous as the one depicted in the book. Reading about the wind that tossed everything in a room around like a tornado had me jumping at every sound, and the evil criminals have such convincing character traits that I felt uncomfortable when they surfaced in the story. The book's characters are distinctive, realistic, and expressive. In a particularly challenging moment, the protagonist says that she is "crammed with every emotion covering the emotional gamut." I had an explosively thrilling time with Bad Man. Bad Daddy? It is tastefully filled with sizzling romance, mightily suspenseful missions, and intriguing, intricate details about the spiritual world.
