Second Chef Caine adventure just as much fun as the 1st! It's Charlotte Caine's fun tone and voice that carries this through for me. Fans of the Suki Stackhouse books would be well-advised to check out this unique series about a female chef trying to run a restaurant in a city populated with vampires and warlocks. Too much fun!

I absolutely love Sara Zettel's Vampire Chef Mysteries. They're fresh, intriguing and humorous. What a great way to mainstream a paranormal story!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Second book in the Vampire Chef Mystery Series has Charlotte (Chef Caine) agreeing, against her better judgment after another well-known chef backs out, to take on the catering of a huge wedding between a very wealthy family and a vampire. There's a lot of money involved which would greatly help her restaurant. She doesn't discover until after she accepts that the family is part of the Maddox family, known vampire-slayers before that became illegal; the family that her possible boyfriend, Brendan, belongs to. It doesn't help matters that the original chef is found dead of poison the next day.

As with the first book, the main focus of the story is on the running of a restaurant and now a catering operation while Charlotte tries to find out what's going on because things just don't add up. And as usual, there's danger. She's got help from both Brendan, and vampire food critic, Anatole, both who would do anything for her. And of course, she's attracted to both.

There's plenty of humor and action along with the mystery and the story is an easy read even though the mystery of the who-done-it and why is nicely complicated and not something most would figure out.

An enjoyable paranormal cozy.

Wow...I hope this author can keep this level of writing up and I certainly hope she gains a following because her books really deserve the kudos. This is book 2 in the Vampire Chef series and if you are wondering if you need to read book one first...well you don't have to since the author really gives us just enough back-story to explain things but not enough to bore 'fans'. I personally would suggest you do red book one first, since there is well...only one book to catch up on and it really does explain a lot. Plus it was just a darn good book and I think mystery lovers would really like it.

Charlotte's restaurant has been chosen to cater the wedding for an unlikely couple - a witch and a vampire. Of course her restaurant was second choice since the origination choice has stepped away from the job. This job will put Charlotte in the black and give her some breathing room. She knows this is a horrible idea but the cash...well you can't walk away from that can you?

Now Oscar is dead, part of the grooms family has disappeared and the brides family is acting truly peculiar.

the characters are even more fleshed out than in the first book, which gives me hope that they will all grow throughout the series. The 'love-triangle' is a little less important/highlighted in this book even though Brendon and Anatole have an equal parts in helping Charlotte solve the murder/crimes. The descriptions of New York City are vivid and will make anyone who lives there quite happy and anyone who doesn't live there want to visit.

Again as with book one, I have the same complaint...the food descriptions sounds so delicious that I want some recipes. Alas there are non in the books...so far!

If you are a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse Vampire novels by Charlaine Harris but with a food slant like Diane Mott Davidson's sere is, then I think you will enjoy this new series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When the vampires came out in public, humans reacted overall with equanimity. They granted all rights to vampires and the other paranormal species (weres, witches and warlocks) who followed except they must register. Just like humans have restrictions the paranormal do too. For instance, vampires can drink human blood that is given freely but cannot be sold as a commodity. The paranormal species are not a monolithic block as vampires and witches have been enemies for centuries. Clubs and restaurants cater to the paranormal. For instance, Nightlife, owned by Chef Charlotte Caine and her vampire brother Chet, serve "Noir Cuisine" to Nightbloods and Daybloods.

When celeb chef Oscar Simmons quits working a marriage gala, event planner Felicity Garnett begs Charlotte to cater the multispecies wedding of the decade between witch Deanna Alden and Gabriel Renault the Nightblood allegedly from Paris (not Hoboken). Charlotte accepts the job that could make the restaurant a success. Soon afterward, Oscar is dead from what appears to be a heart attack and the groom's side has begun to disappear. Charlotte realizes her boyfriend Brendan Maddox is related to the Alden family and everything turns sour when someone steals the anti- vampire weapon the Arall. Charlotte seeks the purloined object before she serves rations to the combatants.

The second "Vampire Chef" mystery is a delightful amateur sleuth fantasy that is much darker than its predecessor (A Taste of the Nightlife). The paranormal comes across as normal; especially enhancing that sense of "reality" is the heroine's egalitarian attitude as she believes all species are equal with each having the good, the bad and the ugly. Readers who want something different will enjoy stopping for something red served up by Sarah Zettel at Nightlife.
