BOOK REVIEW

DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY by Jennifer Harlow

BOOK REVIEW

TO CATCH A VAMPIRE by Jennifer Harlow
Released: Sept. 8, 2012

"The second in Harlow's F.R.E.A.K.S. series (Mind Over Monsters, 2011) reads like an homage to Harris' tales of Sookie Stackhouse, though Bea seems to take herself a little less seriously."
Posing as a couple has two special agents all confused, since the most complicated thing they are used to dealing with is their supernatural gifts. Read full book review >

CHILDREN'S
Released: July 10, 2007
