Following her parents' death, Quincie Morris was left in her Uncle Davidson's care, and the fate of the family's Italian restaurant was left in hers. Now 17, Quincie, who narrates, and her uncle have renamed the place Sanguini's. They've remodeled it with a "vampire theme," which they believe will sell in their Texas college town since "vampires are a fringe population, and Austin is a tolerant place." A month before the grand re-opening, however, the longtime chef is mauled to death in the kitchen, and the murder suspect is a werewolf. Quincie finds this problematic, since her lifelong best friend and love interest, Kieren, is a "hybrid werewolf" who traces his lupine heritage to the wolves that roamed Ireland with St. Patrick. A new chef shows up who may be talented but is also spooky, with red contact lenses, pale hair and a menu featuring sweetbreads, blood sausage and baby squirrels in honey cream sauce.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was okay. I know that it is a teen book but to me it was just a bit too juvenile. The plot was a bit disjointed and the ending, while I saw it coming a mile away, was a bit abrupt and unsatisfying. The characters were a bit too shallow. I suppose it would be an okay read for the younger teen into vampire romance, but there are so many great teen paranormal books out there that this one really does not make the list for me.
