What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and that’s just fine with Penny Dreadful when Sin City becomes too hot for her and her sisters because a few misguided vampire hunters think vampires are an abomination against nature. Talk about rude.

Now Penny and her sisters, Paige and Pita, along with Granny Mags, live in Transylvania, Texas, home of the oldest cemetery in the United States… and the Dreadful Inn Bed & Breakfast. Life is going pretty good for the undead foursome until the director of the city library turns up dead, with a book filled with blank pages offering the only clue.

The new sheriff is drop-dead gorgeous but he’s way out of his league when it comes to solving a supernatural murder so Penny takes it upon herself to find out who the culprit is, before the supernatural shenanigans lure the hunters to town and Penny’s new home goes up in smoke.

Along the way, she teams up with a troublesome witch with a fascination for shoestrings and learns that words can do more than hurt when a little magic is added.

Note: Vampires of Transylvania Texas is a new supernatural series filled with fun, sarcasm, adventure, and maybe just a touch of romance if Penny, Paige, and Pita play their cards right.

***Melanie #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***

This is the first installment from debut author Piper Alexander and I have to say it is a pretty good one. Cute, fun, vampire tales always catch my attention and this is done well with a little mystery thrown in too.

A short story (clocking in at about 50 pages) that definitely sets things up for many adventures (hopefully) to come and I am looking forward to seeing where the author goes with this.

Fans of Kristen Painter’s Nocturne Falls series (or which I am) will enjoy the style and ideas presented and I see great potential  here.

A well earned 4 stars from me!
