Overview

For American Stephanie Cahill, Bella Vista is a new beginning - a chance to put her painful past behind her. Yet, from the moment the first body is discovered at the site of an archaeological dig, Stephanie feels as if she's being watched, followed, studied,.hunted. Archaeologist Grant Peterson senses something odd about this dig, something that has him locking his door at night. And now, the echoes of a burial site's ancient legend can be found in the chilling signature of a killer on the loose, as one by one, young women start disappearing, only to be found horribly mutilated. The powerful attraction between Stephanie and Grant is a complication neither can afford as they are pulled into a desperate race against time to keep Stephanie from joining the ranks of the missing. For nothing in Bella Vista is what it seems. No one can be trusted. And those closest to Stephanie may prove the most dangerous of all.

    Good Horror Story with Romance

    I found this book to be a little hard to get into, but once all of the action had started, I couldn't put it down. Shannon Drake has a gift with words that can make the reader feel and sense the horror that is about to happen, and yet be drawn to the love and romance of the story. I loved all of the characters (except for Gema.) I thought that it was a very well thought out story that keeps you guessing until the very end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read horror novels or romance novels. Even if you don't like these genres, there is a big mystery that becomes unfolded in the end. There is also a supernatural element to it that keeps the reader entertained. So if you need a good read, than I suggest this one. It will keep you on the edge of your seat!

    Not Really Worth Reading

    In the beginning, you learn about a lord that got together with a witch to take control of the local land. But a Norman, that was sent to protect the locals and their land, has a great battle with them. His love prevents the witch from being killed and an earthquake buries him and the lord.

    Stephanie Cahill, is looking for a new beginning after breaking up with her boyfriend and the offer of a new job in Italy with a friend of the family. Once she is there, she learns that one of her actors, for a little theater in the resort that she is to run, has disappeared. It looks like she didn't like it and went looking for bigger and better things. Then she runs into her ex, Grant, at an archeological dig just unearthed from a recent earthquake and with the lose of the actor, Stephanie has to step into the role and Grant direct.

    But then a local girl is found, murdered, and strange events surround her death and funeral. Then other actors start turning up ill. Then it comes out that there are good and evil vampires and that a good vampire couple is looking out for Stephanie and Grant, a key to the resurrection of the original lord.

    I have to say that I had a hard time getting into this book, most of the beginning was a jumble of things going on with no real purpose. It was two-thirds of the way through until it was brought up that there are vampires and what the purpose of the story was. This was one book that I could have done with out.

    fine amateur sleuth with a delightful romance inside a fabulous horror venue

    Chicago Park Street Players comedy club owner Grant Peterson and his manager Stephanie Cahill were having quite an affair until the night he screamed out another woman¿s name while suffering through a nightmare. She never explained to Grant why she dropped their romance and ultimately quit working for him. Her cousin Reggie brought her to Naples, Italy to run her comedy club there.--- Grant is an avid amateur archeologist enjoying the Discovery Channel as a passion. He has come to South Italy on a dig unaware that Stephanie is nearby. As a murder occurs and a member of Stephanie¿s staff vanishes, she and Grant work together to try to uncover what is going on. Soon their proximity rekindles their passion, but neither knows that evil is in the air and coincidence is not what brought this couple back together.--- DEAD BY DUSK is Shannon Drake at her best as she cleverly blends a fine amateur sleuth with a delightful romance inside a fabulous horror venue. The story line is action packed and filled with twists that take the reader from a broken Midwest love story to a foreign who-done-it to a second chance at love and to a confrontation with a vampire and devil dogs (these are not cake). The lead couple is a delightful pairing and the secondary cast either is old friends bringing alive Italy or malevolence at its evilest. Fans of Ms. Drake will appreciate the cleverly disguising of her subplots so that the audience never knows where she will take them next with this suspense thriller.--- Harriet Klausner
