I really enjoyed this Dexter story. This is the fifth book by Jeff Lindsay and it does not disappoint. In this story, Dexter is a new father and is trying to become more "human" and listen to the Dark Passenger less. Because of that, there are very few Dexter killings, but the story as a whole is intense and engrossing. I would highly recommend this book, especially if you like the other Dexter books and/or the show.

5th in series, and this one was the best so far! Jeff Lindsay is on top of his game in Dexter is Delicious; the plot was tight knit, and much easier to understand than the previous installments. I loved it!

Dexter and Rita have a new baby, Lilly Ann, and Dexter realizes he is now having human feelings for the first time in his life. He makes the decision to become Dex-Daddy, and leave the dark passenger behind in his old life. Things start going wrong when his long lost brother Brian returns, and Debbs takes on a case of 2 missing girls.
Dexter constantly finds himself tangled up in Deborahs' schemes to uncover the truth about a gang of vampire wannbees and cannibles, and soons becomes the main course of their sick and twisted eating habbits. This was a great mystery/thriller, and could easily stand alone, but is best if read in order to understand the characters.

As i said before this was by far the best book in the series. The ending will completely blow you away, and i hope hope hope there will be more books.

Dexter Is Delicious was another great novel by Jeff Lindsay. It opens up with the birth of Dexter and Rita's first baby. With the new baby Dexter is not feeing himself there are all new emotions running through him. While Dexter is exploring his new feelings and about the baby Deb's is working 2 missing persons case's that end up being about Cannibals. It is very entertaining and keeps you wondering until the very end about who the bad guys really are. I was so surprised by the end totally taken back and couldn't believe what happened. Now I'm waiting impatiently for the next installment.
