From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes a humorous, fun standalone mystery, The Librarian's Vampire Assistant, BOOK #2. (Yep! It's a standalone. The boring title is just to mess with you!)


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?


Michael Vanderhorst is back in the second installment of The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant. Michael continues to pursue those who threaten Miriam his treasured librarian and her treasured library. Having committed to turning Miriam within the year, Michael is struggling with his secret and how to tell Miriam she’s destined for fangdom. Personal problems aside, Michael needs to find 500 unsanctioned vampires and their fugitive makers all the while leading two territories and dodging the bizarre grand poo-ba of vampires Mr. Nice.

The series is cute; a vampiric cozy mystery. It’s entertaining and fun. The central mystery of this installment is resolved by series end with enough lead into the next story to pique the reader’s interest.

Michael is, by far, the best thing about this series. He’s smart, fierce, and wholly hilarious, matched in sass only by his assistant Lulu and the terrifyingly whacky Mr. Nice. I’m perplexed by Miriam and Michael’s intense attraction to her. As a character, she lacks interest or spark. I hope as the series progresses she becomes more dynamic. At this point, she’s merely a foil for Michael’s antics.

This series isn’t my usual reading fare. I love Pamfiloff’s books, but this series hasn’t been my favourite. It’s best suited to fans of cozy mystery. I predict it will one day be a tv movie starring Candace Cameron Bure.

  1. Ouch! The only way you could have made that last comment worse was to add "Hallmark" before movie. 😁
