Smashwords book reviews by Helen Scott Taylor

  • Underdead on Oct. 01, 2011

    I'm a great lover of paranormal stories, so when I came across Underdead I had to give it a try. I'm so pleased I picked this book up. The author has written a wonderful cozy mystery with a twist of romance. I loved the quirky main character Jo. There are laugh out loud moments, an enigmatic vampire and lots of clues to keep you guessing about who's the murderer. I'll definitely be buying the next in the Underdead series. I recommend this to all age groups. The content is suitable for anyone from teens upwards.
