Overview

The hilarious adventures of human chameleon Ciel Halligan continue in the fourth installment of this original urban fantasy series from Linda Grimes, "All Fixed Up."

Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire, has a lot of experience filling in for her clients--as them. A rare genetic quirk gives her the ability to absorb human energy and project it back out in a flawless imitation. She's hard at work, posing as a well-known and celebrated astronaut, about to make a stunning announcement on behalf of the space program...when the photographer documenting the job sees right through her aura. Worse, it soon becomes apparent that he not only knows Ciel s not who she's supposed to be, but means her harm.

When Ciel's elderly Aunt Helen also an aura adaptor is murdered in Central Park, and the same photographer shows up at the funeral, Ciel starts to feel even more exposed. Then more adaptors are killed in the same way, and she becomes terrified her friends and family are being systematically exterminated ... and it's starting to look like she's the ultimate target. She turns to Billy Doyle, her best-friend-turned-boyfriend, for help, but when an unexpected crisis causes him to take off without a word, she's left to rely on her not-so-former crush, CIA agent Mark Fielding.

Staying alive, keeping control of her romantic life, and unraveling the mystery of why adaptors are being pursued becomes a harder balancing act than ever in this new Ciel Halligan adventure from Linda Grimes."

Grimes’s humorous fourth Ciel Halligan contemporary fantasy (after The Big Fix) starts to crumple under the weight of its leaden love triangle. Ciel comes from a long line of facilitators, chameleonic people who are able to absorb and imitate the aura of anyone they come into contact with. She makes a living working as a double for celebrities and taking occasional government assignments. Usually the gigs go well, but when Ciel poses as a NASA astronaut, she inadvertently creates an opportunity for the powers of the facilitators to become public knowledge, putting her and her entire family in danger. To make matters worse, her relationship with handsome Billy Doyle has hit a very bumpy patch—and government agent Mark Fielding is happy to pick up where Billy left off. Moments of hilarity mix well with elements of intrigue and mystery to create a solid continuation of Ciel’s story, but the by-the-numbers love triangle adds little to the plot and ends up pulling the reader out of the well-developed world. Agent: Michelle Wolfson, Wolfson Literary Agency. (May)
