Review – Murder at Chipmunk Lake (Biting Love Short Bites bk 3) by Mary Hughes

I can always count on Mary Hughes making me smile, making me feel better and just enjoying reading. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 

Nixie’s lost her mojo!

Nixie Emerson, punk rock musician and first-time mom-to-be, has a stalker. Her band Guns and Polkas has gone national after their big stage debut, but the price of fame is the stalker trying to scare her into leaving the band.

Her husband, master vampire Julian, whisks Nixie away to the Wisconsin north woods–where they meet the stalker on the pier of their cabin and he again threatens Nixie.

Julian punches him out and the couple walks away thinking the problem is over. But when the next evening the stalker is found dead, they find out the trouble is only starting.

Warning: contains a cranky pregnant lady trying to control her swearing, a master vampire appeasing his wife with food and creative sex, murder, mayhem and several arguments over what to name the baby.


Mary Hughes never, ever ceases to amaze me with her telling of a paranormal story. Yes, rumor haspurestdelightaward it that Paranormal is on it’s way out. Not so with the way Mary tells her stories. Comical, loving, oh so sexy will never go out of style whether it be Paranormal or just plain Romance. Mary Hughes makes you forget that you are dealing with delicious, gorgeous vampires until their fangs come out.

Nixie and Julian are just a fun couple … she plays in a Polka/Rock band and he’s an attorney. Together, they are like a force of nature. He needs to protect her, she needs to remember what she was like before she was pregnant and get those feelings back. Dealing with pregnancy, naming the baby, desperately trying not to curse, a stalker and a murder has them connecting and figuring out just what they are both afraid of in the future. No, it’s not humans finding out about vampires but something a little more dear and closer to their hearts.

I can always count on Mary Hughes making me smile, making me feel better and just enjoying reading. She has a way with words, with mixing music with sex and romance, of just writing a feel-good book. She brings all her characters together in one way or another and doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to making her characters sexy, interesting and fun. So, if you are feeling down, looking for something light and fun, sexy and romantic, pick up the Biting Series. I fell in love with the whole gang and always look forward to revisiting with them to see what they are getting into now.
