Blood Bath & Beyond

Book: Blood Bath & Beyond
Series: Immortality Bites Mystery #1
Author: Michelle Rowen

Review: Sarah Dearly is adjusting to life with her fiancee Thierry when he takes a job 'he cannot refuse' with The Ring (organization that manages vampire affairs). They relocate to Vegas so he can investigate a beauty pageant contestant (think Honey Boo Boo). Things get complicated when a series of murders occur and Thierry becomes the main suspect. Have no fear-Sarah is on the case!

Immortality Bites is one of my favorite vampire series for one primary reason-Rowen has the ability to make me laugh. This book was no exception and I found my self constantly chuckling over Sarah's ability to get in harms way and her attempts to get out of trouble. I especially loved a scene where she finds herself tied up by vampire hunters and tries to talk her way out of it. I loved the Vegas backdrop and the serial killer mystery was fun. I didn't really warm up too much to beauty pageant contestant Victoria (a chain smoking 5 year old who loved sparkles and all things pageant) but overall, super fun, light, read.  **Readers who haven't read the first series may not warm to Thierry-he is a rather cold character but beneath the exterior, he and Sarah are really wonderful together.**

I look forward to reading the next book. 

Grade: 4/5
