Blood Pact - Vicki Nelson, Bk 4 Author:Tanya Huff It began with the call no daughter ever wants to get, the call that told private investigator Vicki Nelson her mother had died.

I just HAD to read the books, after seeing the "Blood Ties" series on Lifetime. Great, fun, characters. Intriguing story lines. Crazed baddies. Witty repartee. The book did not disappoint. This is the last in the series, so you may wish to start with the first and work your way to this one, or watch the series and then read this. Even if fantasy fiction is not your thing, if you enjoy romantic comedy and intrigue, you'll enjoy this series. Tanya Huff is an excellent writer who's choice of genre is the only thing keeping her from mainstream praise.
