Sarah Dearly fans will be happy to see their favorite vampire sleuth back in a thoroughly engaging new mystery. Newly married, Sarah and her vampire hubby Thierry set off on a trip to Salem, Massachusetts, where three vampires have gone missing. Trouble starts when their contact goes up in smoke - literally - leaving them with a perplexing mystery and a plethora of other-worldly suspects.
Bled and Breakfast is an engaging, well plotted paranormal mystery. As always, Rowen 's prose is a delight. She is comfortable in the skin of her characters and it shows. I predict a bright future for The Immortality Bites Mystery series, and I look forward to more in the same vein (no pun intended) from this author. My only criticism at this point would be - it's too long in between adventures - can we get two a year? Please? Meow! - 4 ½ stars - ROCCO LOTEMPIO.
Fledgling vampire Sarah Dearly knew what she was getting into when she married master vampire Thierry de Bennicoeur. As an agent of the Ring, Thierry is sent all over the world to solve vampire crimes and keep them secret from humans. And now Sarah’s on the job with him—for better or worse. Right after their wedding in Las Vegas, Sarah and Thierry get their next assignment: Three vampires have gone missing in Salem, Massachusetts, and they need to find out why. Their contact in Salem turns out to be a local lothario with a penchant for witches, but before he can help them, he suddenly goes up in smoke—leaving behind nothing but a stain on the ground and a seemingly impossible mystery. Did a witchy ex-mistress cast a deadly spell, or is there something even more sinister happening to the vampires of Salem? Getting to the truth may require raising the undead, with a little help from the owners of a vampire-friendly bed and breakfast. But uncovering Salem’s darkest secrets may drag some of Thierry’s own past into the light.
