Elvis is missing! No, not dead, missing. Ok, so he’s not exactly The Elvis, but close enough. And Mallory won’t let his disappearance rest. When another member of the supernatural community goes missing she’s finally able to convince her motley crew to investigate. She’s determined to solve this mystery before more people disappear. But first she needs to not be arrested for the murder of her former landlady. And maybe not drool over the hot detective in charge. All in a day’s work for the new vamp.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Too bad food makes Mallory barf. I totally loved books 1 & 2 and book 3 is just as enjoyable. Mallory is hilarious. She walks the fine line of being just ditzy enough to make this series work. Not enough and it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun; too much and I’d just want to cut her head off. Cate Lawley pulls it off with perfection. The mystery is just twisty enough to keep me guessing, all of the characters are wonderful and fully in the story (no cardboard background props here), and the relationship between Mallory and Alex is so delightfully heart-warming as well as delicious. The will-they-or-won’t-they question progresses just enough in each book to be a believable real-life scenario and leaves me waiting anxiously for it to happen, but also hoping it goes on for at least a few more books because I don’t want them to lose that special spark they have. Think Bones or Moonlighting and you’ll understand what I mean. When you’re looking for some light-hearted and fun entertainment then look no further. This series is wicked awesome for a few hours of escapism. Also note, each book can be read as a standalone, but why would you want to do that?! Go back to the beginning and revel in Mallory’s journey to date.
