I absolutely love Sara Zettel's Vampire Chef Mysteries.
Kym Roberts
I found the writing to be layered very nicely between the unique personalities of the characters and their motivations.

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!

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.

By Arthur W. Jordin on December 1, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Let Them Eat Stake (2012) is the second urban Fantasy novel in the Vampire Chef series, following A Taste of Nightlife. In the previous volume, Chef Caine was in the kitchen preparing a special gravy when Chet came charging into the hot line. He was waving his phone and yelling that Anatole Sevarin was coming. Chef Caine ran him out of the hot line before he caught fire.

Despite her rebuke of Chet, Chef Caine was thrilled at the news. Her restaurant revenue had been barely keeping even with the expenses since its opening. Sometimes she and Chet had gone without to pay the help.

Later, Robert came into the kitchen to ask her to deal with a problem. A woman at table two had a coarse hair in her soup. She wanted the server fired.

Chef Caine didn't believe that the server had intently added the hair to the dish, but she tried to calm down the angry woman. Then Dylan entered the dining room and claimed that the woman was his cousin Pamela. He generated a large fireball and set off the sprinkler system.

In this novel, Charlotte Cordelia Caine is a natural human and the executive chef at Nightlife, a restaurant for Nightbloods and other night people. Her brother is the co-founder of the restaurant.

Chester Calvin Caine is Charlotte's brother. Chet is also a vampire.

Brandon Maddox is a security specialist running his own company. He is a scion of a large witch clan. He is Caine's sort of, kind of, boyfriend.

Anatole Sevarin is also a vampire. He writes the dining column for Circulation, the number one paranormal publication in the New York City. He wants to be Caine's lover.
