I like that this book took the fact that society had accepted groups of society such as Vampires, Werewolves etc. The Author even made up legislation regulations as to preparation of foods, and were worried about security issues.
The surprise was not the corpse, however, the illegal sale of human blood which was the crime Our new sleuth Chef Caine was finding herself dealing with.
I also appreciated to romance peppered throughout the book. It felt 'natural' in a very unnatural setting. I didn't find myself repulsed even though I'm not going to be trying any exotic cocktails for a while.
I look forward to Ms. Zettel's next novel.
