Over too soon
Mimi Jean P. Has once again created a great story. Let me repeat GREAT STORY... however this one differs from her usual romance. (No spoilers 🤐🤫)
I’m giving it 3 stars because Mimi is a five star in the romance genre, and this story reads like a mystery, with the formula of romance novel. Not a bad thing until you get to end; and wonder “is this it? No, surely not. Where is the rest of it? But, I need more...”
(Sorry Mimi Jean P. It really is a great story, but hurried. Mr. Vanderhorst and I deserved more suspense, more pages, and slower character development. Some of us girls like anticipation, but you gave it to me too fast)
It’s a great start to what could blossom into a really good series. I can’t wait to see how Mimi Jean P. develops these characters. Hopefully she will continue to explore this new side of her own writing.
***Small spoiler*** if you like puzzles, backstabbing, and conniving, and have a curiosity similar to a little monkey I know, then this is the book for you.
I went into this book considering it a birthday present to myself. And boy was I Not disappointed. The story moved quickly but was also well rounded, as a huge fan of vampire novels in general, I had a feeling I would at least mildly enjoy it. Instead I enjoyed it immensely, finding myself laughing out loud and disturbing the peace of my shared accommodations. All in all, I would recommend it to anyone who feels the need for any easy, quick and fun read. Can’t wait for the next one!
Vampires cannot resist a mystery! Who knew?!
Michael’s mentor and friend Clive is murdered. Along the way of figuring out how this could happen Michael “stumbles” into “his” librarian Miriam. This story is fun, flirty and unexpected. Not only is this a different twist on vampires it is a reluctant love story. Fate will not be denied...and neither will Mr.Nice. Can’t wait for the next in this series.....since I know Mr.Nice will ”force her to make more Fanged loves”. Highly recommend!
Great Mystery Read
By Picky mom
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a fun mystery that did not include suspense. The story felt like I was following clues like - It was Mrs. Plumb with the rope in the kitchen. I enjoyed trying to figure out who did it. In true Mimi style the book ends with a cliffhanger so I anxiously await what comes next. This book was interesting without being a romance. Truly love that I couldn’t put the book down and can’t wait to see where the next book takes us. Great read.
Can’t wait for the next installments
I couldn't put it down. I want more!!!
Laugh out loud funny!
Mimi Jean always comes through and this time is no exception. Fun, laugh out loud read. Michael is in mourning. His maker and friend is dead. To find answers and bring back his remains- yes vampires have remains- he has to travel to the most hellish place in the US for a vampire: Phoenix. But things aren’t quite so simple. This has become an extended stay. And Clive left a big mystery. Solving this murder, figuring out what’s going in with the local vampire society, saving the rather lovely librarian’s life while deciding how to get her to update her wardrobe, and finding a good Indian restaurant is on the list for today. But most important: cleaning the librarian’s office!
A Funny Mystery full of Heart
By Couldn’t put it down!
What happens when your not so average romance writer dips her toe into the mystery genre? You get a Vampire stuck in one of the sunniest cities you can imagine trying to solve a mystery all while trying to navigate around a little librarian who may or may not be very distracting. Basically you get PURE GENIUS.
Michael Vanderhorst is having a really bad couple of days. Someone killed his maker and no one in the hellishly sunny city of Phoenix, Arizona is lifting a finger to find out who.
Michael is a 400 year old vampire, a gentleman and without time for the softer emotions. His current plan visit the offices of The Arizona Society of Sunshine Love aka the local vampire coven, collect the remains of his maker and hopefully find out what happened. Unfortunately for him nothing can be that easy. Suddenly he’s interviewing with the local librarian for the assistant librarian position, and planning to stay indefinitely. If the local vampires wont find out what happened to his maker he will, even if he has to break a few rules to do it.
Michael’s interactions and internal monologues are exceptionally entertaining. He just wants to be that stodgy old vampire who doesn’t haven’t go beyond being a courteous gentleman, yet every time he turns around someone is ruining that for him. Miriam the local librarian is soft spoken, a little defiant and strong willed although an extreme danger magnet. And Lula, Michael’s assistant is snarky, sassy, a little vulnerable, and one I hope to see much more of in future books.
Mimi has very successfully moved into the Mystery genre with this book. It was witty, entertaining and I laughed out loud multiple times.
Loved this Adventure!
By Cali Jewel
Wow, just so wow. This is not your typical vampire story, what you get is a fun, quirky and thrilling twist on a classic vampire loving a human romantic journey. It is filled with passion, witty banter, danger and emotional chills that will leave you craving more...
Michael Vanderhorst is sexy, charming, passionate and a four-hundred-year-old vampire looking for his makers killer. When he stumbles upon a sexy little librarian that just can't keep from stumbling into trouble and he can't stop saving. Could not put this down once I started reading it and lost a full nights sleep but it was so worth it. (talk about book hangover)
Great new type of series by Mimi Jean!
By I'm not really going
This book is quite a departure from the books we have come to expect from Mimi Jean! This story contains no sex, God's or Goddesses, mermen, or any of the other red hot story lines we normally love. In this book, Mimi Jean has turned down the fire and yet has given us a new kind d of hero. This vampire shares very little in common with other vampires you have read about. While he is old and powerful, he isn't using his power to seduce young women, sharing bis brooding heat with the women he meets, or even using them to attract the one he loves. Why? Because he doesn't know how to love or even much about his own kind. So when he stumbles into the job as the librarian' s assistant, it is simply to solve the mystery of how and why his maker was killed, and how the librarian fits in. Will this arrangement turn into a love story? We will just have to wait and see! In the meantime, enjoy this very different vampire.
