I only read Frost's story: One for the Money - 4 stars

I am not generally a fan of anthologies however this one was exceptional. I especially enjoyed the Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, and Katie MacAlister stories. I am not a fan of L.A. Banks but her story was very enjoyable. ( )

Two Blondes - a Sooke Stackhouse story. I felt like I would've enjoyed it more if I had read the Sooke Stackhouse books. But it did not make me want to run out and order Sooke Stackhouse books.

The Demon In the Dunes - oh 1975 I remember it well. Smoking lodges at the High School - you don't see that any more ( )

Anthology of paranormal characters taking a "vacation." In the book we have a short story with Sookie Stackhouse and Pam where their running an errand for Eric. There's also another vampire who runs an amusement park. A gargoyle who walks around as a human. A demon who prefers a dog's form to a humans. Werewolves are featured in a couple, featured as both the good and the bad guys. One story briefly touches on the loch ness monster. While another features that are reminiscent of the creature from the black lagoon. Good book overall, although some of the stories just left me flat. ( )
