Let Them Eat Stake

It’s a dream for a “Vampire Chef”-cater the high-profile wedding of a 200-year-old vampire and a wealthy witch. So why did celebrity chef Oscar Simmons walk away from this gig? Charlotte agrees to take his place, even though she knows this event, thrown by power-hungry vampires and witches, could make (or break) her career, her restaurant, and her life. But when Simmons turns up dead, the groom’s family starts vanishing, and the police start asking pointed questions, Charlotte fears she may have picked the wrong wedding to stake her reputation on…

A Note from the Author:

I have the best readers on the planet, and a lot of you have emailed to ask whether there is going to be a 3rd Vampire Chef book.  The answer is I sincerely hope so, and my publisher sincerely hopes so.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is I won’t have a clear answer until after the first of the year.  There is more good news, however.  There are a lot of available options open for how that 3rd book is going to get done, and right now it’s a matter of choosing the one that’s going to work best on the publishing end as well as on the reader end.  So, thank you for all your support and your patience.  I hope to have more, and better news about Charlotte, Nightlife, Cafe N, and not to mention the Central Park Zombie and the eventual return of Chet’s wayward sire-ess…




"The good news is all good. It is a good mystery and good fun, but also rock solid in the writing and characters. It is not fluff, even though it is entertaining as heck. It’s so nice to be able to relax and enjoy, knowing that you are in good hands, with an author who both cares and has the chops to make it work."
