I got this title from the library after having read some of the Veronica Speedwell books. Now I'm likely hooked on both series. (Aw, poor me! Grins.)

This is a long book, but the chapters are short. Great writing, well-paced, interesting characters. I

I'm a little nuts about this series. The back and forth-ing from one time period and POV to Emily's POV and the "current" time takes some getting used to, but I become engaged with all the characters fairly quickly. The quality of the story-telling a ...more

Nancy Haddock Hi, and apologies for being late replying!

The first 3 books - the Oldest City Vampire trilogy - are set in st. Aug. I do adore living here! The cozy mystery series - the Silver Six Crafting Mysteries - are set in southwest Ark. For 3 reasons, but the biggie is that it refused to be set anywhere else.

If you even get back this way, let me know! If you have time, I'd love to buy you coffee or lunch, or whatever you might have time for.

Take good care, and have an amazing week!

N. Dunham Thanks for the add Nancy!! I love that your book settings take place in St. Augustine, FL- I used to live in Florida and St. Augustine is such a neat place.
