A Heart in the Right Place by Heide Goody and Iain Grant
Genres: Comedy, Dark Humor
Publication date: 30th November 2018 by Pigeon Park Press
All Nick wants to do is take his dying father for a perfect father-son weekend in the Scottish Highlands. It’s not much to ask, is it? A log cabin, a roaring fire, a bottle of fine whisky and two days to paper over the cracks in their relationship.
However, Nick didn’t plan on making the trip with a dead neighbour in the back of his car. Or the neighbour’s dog. He really didn’t plan on being pursued by a psychotic female assassin intent on collecting body parts. And he really, really didn’t plan on encountering a platoon of heavily armed mercenaries, or some very hungry boars, or a werewolf.
A Heart in the Right Place – a horror comedy about setting out with the very best intentions and then messing everything up.
What can go wrong when Nick has planned the whole weekend with his father? Well, to make it short: everything. Starting with problems with delivery of his package that contains very special present for his father, following by Nick’s bad choices while trying to get his parcel from his neighbor’s house ends with very special weekend with his dad but not in the way Nick planned it.
I love creations of characters and the develop of relationship between Nick and his father. Because nothing will make your bond stronger than dead body and crazy assassin.
I have to said that the creativity and imagination of authors’ of this book is insane. I have no idea how did they come up with this incredible idea of writing this book but I’m glad they did. I am fan of dark humor so I was really excited when I get a chance to read A Heart in the Right Place. If some of you also like that kind of humor you should grab this book but be ready for a few hours of laugh. Unless you don’t have strong nerves, then some scenes might be disturbing for you.
It’s the first book from these author I have read but I would love to see more incredible stories they created.
Heide Goody is the stupid one in the writing partnership and Iain Grant is the sensible one. Together, they are the authors of over a dozen books.
The ‘Clovenhoof’ series (in which Satan loses his job and has to move to Birmingham) has recently been optioned by a Hollywood production company.
Heide and Iain are both married, but not to each other.
