The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant, book #2
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes a humorous, standalone mystery, The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant, Book 2. (Yep! It’s a standalone. The boring title is just to mess with you!)
HOW MUCH LONGER CAN HE KEEP HIS SECRET AND HIS FAVORITE HUMAN SAFE?
Michael Vanderhorst has always been a lone wolf. Or lone vampire? Whatever. Point is, this ancient gentleman vampire is obsessed. She’s quirky, a horrible dresser, and the cutest librarian he’s ever seen. The question is, why her? In four hundred years, no one has ever captured his attention like this. He must find out, which is why he just signed on as her new assistant.
The problem is, she has no idea vampires exist or that she’s just broken one of their laws. As the leader of his territory, Michael has been ordered by his council to turn her or kill her. “Over my dead body!”
To overturn the ruling, Michael needs the council on his side, and right now they’re asking him to hunt down and execute five hundred vampires no one can seem to locate. Unfortunately, his assassin days are long over, and he’s not so sure he can go back to killing.
But with Miriam’s life on the line and their unusual bond growing stronger each day, will he dust off the old sword or give her the bite that will make her his forever?
Y’all this book. This series. I don’t normally read comedic mysteries with a dash of romance but Mimi sold me with the first book in the series. Michael was a hoot then and he’s even better in this book. Lulu is back, too. I didn’t know what to think about her until the end. Mr. Nice is just as hilarious, too. His obsession with “Fanged Love” is right on the money and let’s not forget about Miriam. I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to see much of her in the book until the end but it was worth it.
This book was a bit darker in some of the content but I liked that. It explained a bit more of the world that Mimi is building and Viviana, Michael’s new assistant is perfect in the book. I really liked how Ms. Mimi made her a central character in Michael’s work. Plus, I just loved her. She’s a badass but in a very quiet way. Plus, I visualize her as:
Anyway, as the blurb says, this is a stand-alone and Mimi lets you know what happened in the first book without the info dump. I truly forgot how much fun that book was but in a sense, this book wasn’t has fun, just better. The characters were more fleshed out, we get closure on some things but the last line in the book is a doozy. I expected it and no, I’m NOT happy that I have to wait until next year for the conclusion but I’m patient…somewhat.
I highly recommend this book to anyone. It’s that good and there isn’t all the romance, foul language that comes with most books. This is a departure for Mimi but that’s what makes this series so great. She wrote it tongue in cheek with a bit of vampire, family issues, and an awesome mystery that hooks from beginning to end. Pick it up. Buy it for your grandmother. She’ll love it. Trust me.

NOBODY MESSES WITH HIS LIBRARIAN. . .
Who killed Michael Vanderhorst’s maker? It’s a darn good question. But when the trail brings Michael to hellishly sunny Phoenix, Arizona, his biggest problem soon becomes a cute little librarian he can’t seem to stay away from. He’s never met a bigger danger magnet! Even her book cart has it out for her. And is that the drug cartel following her around, too? “Dear God, woman! What have you gotten yourself into?”
Things go from bad to worse when local vampires won’t play nice.
Can this four-hundred-year-old vampire keep his librarian safe and himself out of hot water? Can he bring his maker’s killer to justice? Yesterday, he would’ve said yes. But yesterday, he didn’t have a strange connection with a librarian. Yesterday, people weren’t trying to kill her.
