From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes a Horribly Sunny Mystery, The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant.
NOBODY MESSES WITH HIS LIBRARIAN. . .
Who killed Michael Vanderhorst’s maker? It’s a darn good question. But when the trail brings Michael to hellishly sunny Phoenix, Arizona, his biggest problem soon becomes a cute little librarian he can’t seem to stay away from. He’s never met a bigger danger magnet! Even her book cart has it out for her. And is that the drug cartel following her around, too? “Dear God, woman! What have you gotten yourself into?”
Things go from bad to worse when local vampires won’t play nice.
Can this four-hundred-year-old vampire keep his librarian safe and himself out of hot water? Can he bring his maker’s killer to justice? Yesterday, he would’ve said yes. But yesterday, he didn’t have a strange connection with a librarian. Yesterday, people weren’t trying to kill her.
Absolutely loved this story so far, can’t wait to read the rest!! Love how the author makes the main character seem like they are actually talking to you. Ready to see how the mystery unfolds. Yay! Mystery, mystery, mystery ;)55
I’m definitely buying the second book. It was very well written and is a great book overall. It was interesting trying to find out what will happen next in the book! All in all would recommend :)55
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.35
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!55
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!55
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.55
Can’t wait for the next installments55
I couldn't put it down. I want more!!!55
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!55
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.55
