The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause

Summary:

A girl whose mother is dying of cancer befriends a vampire who is seeking revenge on his brother who killed their mother. Both bond over the pain they are going through.

Opinion:

This book is well written and the story moves along at an even pace. Due to a recent death in my family, I was able to empathize with the girl. On more than one occasion, I was yelling at the book for how the girl was burying her feelings.

One Book in the Grave by Kate Carlisle

Summary:

Book restoration chick, Brooklyn, has stumbled upon yet another dead body. Her latest project involves a book she gave to her best friend and his fiancée three years ago. When her friend tragically dies in a car accident, the book is stolen from his grieving fiancée. Fast-forward three years, the book has shown up and there is now skepticism over whether or not her friend died all those years ago.

Opinion:

This is the first Bibliophile Mystery I’ve read. I didn’t know how much I would like it since I know nothing about book restoration. I consider this to be a “quick and dirty” mystery, perfect for escapism. If you can deal with the macabre, this is for you.
