Praise for "Once Bitten, Twice Shy"...
"What if you were the only non-super born into a family of superheros? Jane knows first hand how it feels but don't count her out...someone has to be the bait to draw out the baddies. Once Burned, Twice Shy by Jessica Verday is a very funny novella with a sweet romance in the end." —LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS
"Verday's "Once Burned, Twice Shy" was a fun (and funny) story about a girl who works with her brother to trap ghosts. She gets more than she can handle one night when she hits a (live) boy with her car during a bust. The plot and characters were strong enough that I could see it being a series." —STACEY MCCULLOUGH, VINE VOICE REVIEWER
