The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant, book #3
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes an uncomfortably hilarious Mystery with a heaping help of sexual frustration, THE LIBRARIAN’S VAMPIRE ASSISTANT, Book Three. (Yep! It’s a STAND-ALONE. But why not read them all because…fun!)
FALLING IN LOVE WITH A LIBRARIAN JUST CAN’T GET MORE AWKWARD…
Michael Vanderhorst is not your usual vampire. For starters, he works in a library, is in love with Miriam, his hot nerdy human boss who has no clue what he is, and he looks like a college student.
In reality, Michael is an ancient deadly vampire, an ex-assassin, and is currently the de facto king of his kind ever since their ruling party disappeared. To where? He doesn’t know, but if he wants his life back, he’ll have to find out. (Mystery!) Especially because a civil war is brewing, and being king makes his librarian a mark for his enemies. She is, after all, his biggest weakness.
With a global uprising about to explode, Michael must give her the protection of his army. Only one problem: She must become his queen first. But every attempt he makes to tell her the truth is met with extreme hostility. “Vampires aren’t real. That’s crazy talk, Michael!” Clearly, the topic frightens her.
With time running out and her life on the line, Michael is left with one option: Marry her. Without her knowing.
Can he pull it off? And what will happen when the fight comes to their door?
I have to admit something. I almost didn’t finish this book. Oh, I got pissed off about more than halfway through it and had it put it down. That’s why the review is late. I’ve read this series from the beginning and fell in love with it. But Ms. Mimi did something that I felt didn’t need to be in the book and bam…pissed off a reader. Now, a couple of chapters later, all is forgiven and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Let’s talk about this series, shall we? There is a NEW mystery in every book. It is SOLVED by the end of the book. Is the romance the overall arc of the book? Absolutely. Ms. Mimi has written a paranormal, cozy mystery with romantic elements that is the best that I’ve ever read. Period. The book makes me laugh, swoon, tense up and keeps me flipping the pages to see what in the heck is going to happen next.
This book is truly the top of the arc for me. It wraps up some looser threads but opens up other possibilities with past characters that I can’t wait to see what happens with them and Michael. I have really warmed up to Miriam. I love her now. She is harboring a HUGE secret in this one and I was just floored. FLOORED!!!! I wish I could share but that’s a huge plot point in the book and you will just have to read it to find out. Ms. Mimi has pulled off a brilliant plot twist that had some great dialogue between her and Michael that is spot on. Oh and the romance FINALLY heats up in this installment. Again, ABOUT TIME!!! Listening to Michael moon over Miriam and never acting on it was frustrating. Not just for Michael for this reader as well.
This is one of the best books that I’ve read so far this year. Ms. Mimi just keeps getting better and better with this series. And Nice makes an appearance or two and he is hell-bent on the book series Fanged Love and it’s a hoot and a half. Please, please give this series a chance. It’s PG-13 at best but more PG. The characters are well rounded, the romance is plausible, if not frustrating and the mystery is fabulous.
