Night of the Living Dandelion by Kate Collins, pages 311
This is book number eleven of the series, but it is easy to understand without reading the other books. The main character Abby owns a flower shop. She meets Vlad Serban, friend of her fiancé Marco, who is rumored to be a vampire. Vlad is from Romania and works the night shift at Marco’s bar. He collects strange flowers like bloodwort and Dracula orchid and for some reason can never be reached in the daytime. Someone starts a rumor that Vlad is a vampire. After a nurse is found drained of blood and dumped behind the bar, Vlad is accused of murder. Abby and Marco investigate the murder to prove Vlad’s innocence. In the meantime Abby needs to deal with her strange cousin, who thinks that she is a vampire.
I enjoyed this book mainly because I liked Vlad very much. The rumors were very funny at first and especially when Vlad did not disprove them. I liked the subplot of the story with the cousin and the scene in the basement was amusing. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested.
