Tali is a divorced mother of two. Circumstances, AKA her ex-husband, forced her to move back to Love, Texas where she is now an event planner. The Halloween season is very busy this year with the fair, ball, and beauty contest.

Aidan is a vampire who lives next door to Tali. He is very mysterious, but shows up just where he is needed. He and Tali have a lot of chemistry.

Beauty contests are highly stressful for all involved but the one in Love tops them all. One of the contestants’ mothers is found dead under very strange conditions. Psychic event planner, Tali Cates, feels that it is her responsibility to help solve the crime, whether or not the Sheriff wants her help. A mysterious new neighbor stirs her curiosity and her libido.

I enjoyed this story. Love is not your typical town, with paranormal beings mixing in with the general population. Aidan’s character could have been a little more developed; he is just a little too mysterious. The characters for the most part are well drawn and the plot is very involving. The ending left a little to be desired, but this appears to be part of a series and I am sure things will be resolved in the next installment, which I will definitely be reading. Tali and her family are definitely worth visiting again.
