THE UNDEAD NEXT DOOR
by Kerrelyn Sparks

Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Vampire, Paranormal Romance
Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

This entertaining story has a great sense of continuity, with frequent appearances by characters from previous books. The hero is sympathetic yet not pathetic, and the heroine is strong and independent. Her little girl adds nicely to the story. The bad guy is quite villainous, but there's enough humor and romance to keep the story from being too dark.

Heather is excited to be able
to view the famous designer Jean-Luc Echarpe's clothes in her own town. Caught sketching one of his dresses, she's shocked to meet the great man himself. But things take a turn for the worse when he's attacked and she tries to save him.

Mistaken by his attacker as Jean-Luc's latest love interest, Heather, her daughter and her housekeeper must submit to his protection. This leads to confrontations with her obnoxious ex and a shock when she discovers what Jean-Luc and his friends really are. (Avon, Feb., 384 pp., $6.99)

The Undead Next Door

Submitted by Robin in PA on April 7, 2011 - 11:40pm.

When famous fashion designer Jean-Luc Echarpe sees a woman drawing a sketch of one of his dresses, he assumes she is stealing the design.  But Heather Westfield tells him she just wants to get ideas to make a dress that fits a real woman...not a size zero.  Jean-Luc is quite taken with the mortal woman and asks her to work at his design house.  But things turn from good to bad when his arch enemy sees Heather and assumes that she is Jean-Luc's lover.  Lui has killed two of Jean-Luc's mistresses through the years and has now targeted Heather. 

This is the fourth book in Kerrelyn Sparks' Love at Stake series and it's another entertaining read.  I like the humor in these books and will be reading the next book in the series soon.  My rating:  4 Stars.
