A hysterical offering by many familiar faces and some new ones. The book is spellbinding as the sexy, sometimes erotic, madcap adventures of the residents of this small village entertain in this keeper.

This collaboration explores things that go bump in the night (or during the day!) in the tiny hamlet of Brokenoggin Falls, Mich.

Seth, a vampyre with a stake in his heart, drops in on Janice Thinksalot and declares centuries of undying love for her, proving that he's not quite dead or undead. Janice has her own secret, which doesn't reveal itself even when she turns into a werewolf at the full moon -- and this place has more full moons than Saturn!

Janice, the police chief and other law-keeping forces attempt to maintain order among the centaurs, witches, werewolves, vampires and the herd of Chihuahuas that are royal pains in everyone's tush.
