The Tell-Fang Heart
Vampire Pet Boutique Mysteries, Book 2
by Elle Wren Burke

Someone is stalking and staking vampires in Arteria Falls, Colorado. Can the town’s resident sleuth catch the culprit before one of her loved ones is next?

A snowstorm is coming just as Valentine’s Day approaches, causing all of Arteria Falls to stock up on blood and other essentials—like Cupid-shaped cakes for dogs. Josie Wixx, disabled vampire, is busy running the cake promotion for her pet boutique, so she barely notices the weather frenzy. Amid the rush of orders, someone leaves a lipstick heart on the boutique’s door. Josie doesn’t think much of it until little hearts start popping up around town…followed by diabolical attacks.

The victims all have one thing in common—bright-blue eyes, just like Josie’s. Just as she wonders if she could be the next victim, she spots another heart…on her blue-eyed coworker and cousin’s car. Desperate to save her cousin, Josie vows to catch the attacker.

With the snowstorm raging around her, she tries to track the culprit. But they leave no trace behind…except for small trinkets that might just reveal the next victim. Can Josie follow the clues before her cousin ends up in a coffin?

If you like cozy towns, vivacious vampires, and charming canine companions, then you’ll love Elle Wren Burke’s fangtastic mystery.
