On the other hand, Wanda is diagnosed with a terminal illness yet doesn’t tell her two best friends and continues her job at Bobbie Sue Cosmetics. After placing an ad about a party at her home where she would recruit new “saleswomen”, she’s shocked to find a man at her doorstep. Heath Jefferson, a centuries old vampire comes looking for a job and impresses Wanda and the other women in the party with his sales skills. After Marty, Nina and Heath find out Wanda is dying, they all team up to make sure she becomes immortal in the most unusual way. After being “accidentally” turned into paranormal beings Marty, Nina and Wanda decide to start a support group called Out in the Open Paranormal Support or OOPs to help innocent people who have been unknowingly turned into different entities.
Despite that the stories have some dark violence, due to the paranormal aspect, it is still interesting. That’s because its laced with family drama, romance and humor. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you feel sad for the characters. However, the best part is of the three best friends sticking together for each other. Being turned into different paranormal beings with different abilities doesn’t affect their friendship. They may bicker and fight with each other but that also shows their love between themselves and their respective partners.
After coming up with the idea of helping other innocent humans, they start their journey into the paranormal world. They encounter many other species of beings such as shapeshifters, demons and genies. But they still have to deal with the same issues as normal human beings experience in life such as betrayal, cruelty and jealousy. However, the more they help others, the more their family grows. Despite everyone being different, they all help out each other whenever needed. That’s the best lesson one can learn from the characters, of being a family filled with love.
