ABOUT Laura B Gschwandtner

Laura B Gschwandtner



Former beauty queen Foxy Anders has fallen on hard times.

Her new tenant, mysterious, bumbling Myron Standlish carries wads of cash and hoards vials of blood.

Her new assistant, Knot Knudsen, loves shoes and conservative politicians, but man can he sell Foxy’s antiques.

Amanda, Foxy’s teenage daughter, thinks they’re all crazy. But, when she hooks up with Nick, a cute guy at school, she’s in for some crazy of her own.

Ultimately, they’re all in for some romance with a dash of suspense and a sprinkle of supernatural. And laughs ... as an added bonus.

From Socrates' Book Review Blog

"This is a cute book which has a little bit of everything – romance for adults as well as young adults, comedy, and a touch of paranormal. The book has characters you will really come to care about. I know I did. An old Yiddish vampire? Too funny. You might not want to read this one in public or people will wonder why you are laughing out loud. This is the first book of a series “The Reluctant Vampire” and I’m already looking forward to the next one."

What readers are saying …
