Norma never chose to be a vampire, but she enjoys her undead life. She runs a profitable cleaning service which assists Seattle's paranormal community by straightening up messy interactions with humans or each other. Norma owns a condo in Capitol Hill with almost no natural sunlight. She loves movies, vampire friendly clubs, and playing board games with her ancestors at the Paper Flower Consortium, Seattle's largest vampire coven.
A vampire is found staked in the hallway of the coven and panic sweeps through the community. When a second body is discovered, the coven's chief of security is pressured to solve the case as quickly as possible. A vampire from her bloodline is implicated. Can Norma clean up this mess and find the real killer before they strike again?
There's nothing like a good story well told. That's what you get with this perfectly paced well balanced tale from a writer I know I will be going back to.
This was a delightful story with a glorious narrator/protagonist in the person of Norma.
If you are in the mood for something a little mysterious, this is for you. If you need to laugh, read this book. Pick it up and enjoy.
About the Author
Much to her chagrin, Elizabeth Guizzetti discovered she was not a cyborg and growing up to be an otter would be impractical, so began writing stories at age twelve
Three decades later, Guizzetti is an illustrator and author best known for her demon-poodle based comedy, Out for Souls & Cookies. She is also the creator of Faminelands and Lure and collaborated with authors on several projects including A is for Apex and The Prince of Artemis V.
To explore a different aspect of her creativity, she writes science fiction and fantasy. Her debut novel, Other Systems, was a 2015 Finalist for the Canopus Award for excellence in Interstellar Fiction. Her short work has appeared in anthologies such as Wee Folk and The Wise and Beyond the Hedge. Death Pulls a Stake Out is her eighth written book and first mystery.
Guizzetti lives in Seattle with her husband and dogs. When not writing or illustrating, she loves hiking and birdwatching.
