Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson’s sexy sire, Gabriel, has always been unpredictable. But the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow — alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.
Now the children’s-librarian-turned-vampire is reviving with plenty of Faux Type O, some TLC from her colorful friends and family, and her plans for a Brave New Jane. Step One: Get her newly-renovated occult bookstore off the ground. Step Two: Support her best friend, Zeb, and his werewolf bride as they prepare for the impending birth of their baby . . . or litter. Step Three: Figure out who’s been sending her threatening letters, and how her hostile pen pal is tied to Gabriel. Because for this nice girl, surviving a broken heart is becoming a matter of life and undeath...
Let me tell ya, the beginning of this book had me really pissed. I could not believe Gabriel. Dick needed to make an overseas trip and kick some butt. I am very thankful for Jane’s friends though. They come up with a lot of great plans to help Jane move on and get her goals in order. Dick, Andrea, Zeb and Jeanine are great support and their antics will leave you laughing out loud.
As usual, things can not stay on track and calm in Jane’s life. The stalking letters surprised me. I would have thought the stalker driving Jane back to Half Moon Hollow would have been put a stop to all the crazy letters. Instead it seems to escalate them. I was really puzzled.
Once again, Jane and gang give you a fun ride with some LOL moments that keep you coming back again and again to this series. This installment held a bit more intensity and action to it than the others, but the fun still comes out. Don’t mess with Jane and her friends. It probably won’t turn out good for you!
