As always, I laughed out loud. I can not wait to see what Nice does to get Mimi to write more. I've enjoyed all of her other books and I am looking forward to see what Michael and Miriam do in the future. Mimi keep up the good work! I look forward to more by an amazing author.

While we expect unicorns, crazy gods and plot twist, what we get this time is more. The characters of Micheal and Miriam have a new sense of depth of character pulling you in and making you want more. I love Mr Nice and his comment about Michael and his choice of books. Can't wait for Fanged Love.

Best story I've read in a while! I read 4 or 5 books a week and find it difficult to find different plots. Love Mimi Jean's writing and her characters are to die for?!

What a great little mystery and suspense story. With a nice hint of romance, I can't wait to read the next one to see where Mimi takes these two characters.

I was sucked in to this book by the ad of the guy doing chin ups on Facebook, and I’m glad it did! I love Michael and can’t wait to see what happens to him next. I’ve already told several friends they need to read this. Great story, love the mystery, and love to see if Micheal and Miriam will ever get together!

The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant is book one in the brand new series, The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant, by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. Where oh where do I start with this book? First, I want to say I LOVED it. It’s so different than anything she has written before. But this shouldn’t be a surprise because every new series by this author is a whole new experience. This first book is not a romance, but there are hints that a romance could develop in future books. That is what I am hoping for anyway. This is a mystery, an adventure, and a whole lot of fun! Michael Vanderhorst is a vampire, he has been for hundreds of years. He has come to Phoenix, Arizona to collect the remains of his beloved maker. Michael doesn’t feel love like humans do, but he feels loyalty and respect, both which he feels for his maker. He was patient with Michael during the early years and taught him how to be a good man, to make a difference. His maker’s death was not an accident, and Michael wants to know the status of the investigation. One thing he certainly hadn’t planned on is crossing paths with the frumpy little librarian, Miriam Murphy, who seems like she is a magnet for mishaps. Something about her seems to call to him and he can’t understand why. And why does the local crime family seem to be after her? There seems to be a lot more to this little librarian than meets the eye! Things just seem to go from bad to worse. The vampire that is in charge over this area doesn’t seem to be honest regarding the investigation into his maker’s death. And his little librarian is attacked! What in the world is going on here? Michael always adheres to the rules, it’s how he was taught. But he finds himself breaking one rule after another. Keeping his librarian safe and investigating the murder proves too much for one person. He’s going to need to call in reinforcements. Michael has had eight careers over his four hundred years. Who would have ever thought that he would be working as a lowly Librariann’s assistant in this god-forsaken sunny city! He just wants to find his maker’s murderer and go home. But will he really be able to leave his librarian? One word that comes to mind with this book is “cheeky.” It has what I would classify as tongue in cheek humor. I don’t know whether it was a little bit shorter in length or whether I was just turning the pages extra fast because I was enjoying it so much. I loved Michael and I believe he came to a few personal revelations in this book. I loved Miriam as well. She has a lot more spunk than you think in the beginning. I also loved Lula, Michael’s assistant from home. Although I felt kind of bad for her. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait for what adventure awaits Michael and Miriam in the next book. And fingers crossed that the future holds a little smexy romance for these two! Thanks as always to Mimi Jean for continuing to keep me entertained.

I am such a huge fan of the writings of Mimi! This book is just as amazing! Lol...totally love Lula! I feel so much for her! Micheal is such a torn and broody vampire! Going through so much and even I didn't see everything he was going to face. While not really getting to know too much about Miriam; I look forward to seeing her come into her own and give Micheal a good round! Thank you Mimi for another great adventure!

I always love Mimi's books. This one was really cute and promises a good start to a new series.

What do you get when you mix Mimi Jean Pamfilhoff, vampires, and murder mystery? You get a wonderful mix of fun, suspense, possible romance, and the quirky brilliance we've come to love so much about me Mimi Jean's writing style. This book left me eagerly anticipating the next of the series, hoping for a Michael of my very own, and with a mean craving for Aloo and Naan.

Like everyone of Mimi’s book, regardless of actual length, it’s too short and never enough. My family has figured out that when I spontaneously almost pee myself laughing, I must be reading one of her books. The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant promises to be the start of yet another engaging series. I love that not a single one of Mimi’s characters fall into a “type” and are all gloriously imperfect. I highly recommend this and all of her other books.

I always know what I'll get with Mimi's books! Great characters, an original story, plot twists I never saw coming! A great start to what I hope is a long running vampire mystery series!

Welcome to Phoenix, Arizona, the land of sun, more sun and vampires? Four hundred-year-old, baby-faced Michael Vanderhorst is on a mission to pick up his maker’s ashes, who knew he would find himself checking out the cute librarian at the private library? Who knew he would find himself in the middle of a mystery to discover who killed his maker, how and why or that his klutzy librarian was always targeted for murder by the local vamps? I know, I know, an unlikely location, an unlikely attraction and a mystery that Michael is determined to solve, clearly this has the marking of only one author…Mimi Jean Pamfiloff has unleashed a new book and a new series on the world! THE LIBRARIAN’S VAMPIRE ASSISTANT is here! Sunscreen in hand, attitude just barely in check, Michael is on a mission, which includes story hour at the library for the kiddies and long dead emotions bubbling to the top as he brings his own brand of investigating to the Grand Canyon state. Will he need a library card to continue to check out the little librarian? Fun, fast and filled with attitude and humor, signature MJP! The world of vampires will never be the same! I received a complimentary ARC edition from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff!

What happens when your not so average romance writer dips her toe into the mystery genre? You get a Vampire stuck in one of the sunniest cities you can imagine trying to solve a mystery all while trying to navigate around a little librarian who may or may not be very distracting. Basically you get PURE GENIUS. Michael Vanderhorst is having a really bad couple of days. Someone killed his maker and no one in the hellishly sunny city of Phoenix, Arizona is lifting a finger to find out who. Michael is a 400 year old vampire, a gentleman and without time for the softer emotions. His current plan visit the offices of The Arizona Society of Sunshine Love aka the local vampire coven, collect the remains of his maker and hopefully find out what happened. Unfortunately for him nothing can be that easy. Suddenly he’s interviewing with the local librarian for the assistant librarian position, and planning to stay indefinitely. If the local vampires wont find out what happened to his maker he will, even if he has to break a few rules to do it. Michael’s interactions and internal monologues are exceptionally entertaining. He just wants to be that stodgy old vampire who doesn’t haven’t go beyond being a courteous gentleman, yet every time he turns around someone is ruining that for him. Miriam the local librarian is soft spoken, a little defiant and strong willed although an extreme danger magnet. And Lula, Michael’s assistant is snarky, sassy, a little vulnerable, and one I hope to see much more of in future books. Mimi has very successfully moved into the Mystery genre with this book. It was witty, entertaining and I laughed out loud multiple times.

Wow, just so wow. This is not your typical vampire story, what you get is a fun, quirky and thrilling twist on a classic vampire loving a human romantic journey. It is filled with passion, witty banter, danger and emotional chills that will leave you craving more... Michael Vanderhorst is sexy, charming, passionate and a four-hundred-year-old vampire looking for his makers killer. When he stumbles upon a sexy little librarian that just can't keep from stumbling into trouble and he can't stop saving. Could not put this down once I started reading it and lost a full nights sleep but it was so worth it. (talk about book hangover)

First off let me tell you that in the recent past there hasn't been a book that actually holds my attention to the point where I would stop my daily activities and read it, but this book sank its hook on me… or should I say, sank its fang in me!!!! I really liked the way the book is written, even if this is not Mimi's usual genre it still has her trademark quirky sense of humor, I mean c'mon she even made a cameo of herself!!!! (which I adored!!!!) This is the first book of I don't know how many, but it ends unresolved not in a cliffhanger per se, just with unresolved issues. It revolves around Michael Vanderhorst, a very old, very refined and apparently good vampire and the circumstances he finds himself when his maker is murdered and he leaves his home in Cincinnati to find our what happened in Arizona, the most awful place for a vampire But to have time there, he finds himself needing a job, as a librarians assistant, with a wonderful and sweet librarian, Míriam, that makes him question all that he knew to be certain about being a vampire, about love, attraction and humanity. And we have other amazing characters, like Lula, the assistants assistant, which I hope endS in better terms in future books, and there is one special character… Yes Mr. NICE, not a nice vampire but a closet romantic who has the best idea in the whole book (inside joke, read the book to know what I mean!!!) Definitely a book to recommend and to keep an eye out for the next one.

In typical Mimi fashion I laughed until I cried while reading this book!! Michael is a vampire who finds out his maker was killed, so he goes to Arizona to find out what happened. While waiting for his appointment with the council he stumbles into an interview for the librarians assistant. She is just so clumsy and ridiculous its mind boggling. After Michael leaves, Miriam (the librarian) is attacked and Michael intervenes. For some reason he feels an attachment to her. It seems his makers death and her attack have a common link and he is determined to stick around and figure it out. Add in the cartel, Renaissance speaking vampires, a crazy and hilarious assistant, a seriously deranged vampire named Mr. Nice, and a mystery that needs to be solved. Can Michael solve the mystery and figure out why he is so obsessed with the librarian?

Michael Vanderhorst is in Phoenix Arizona to collect the remains of his murdered maker. He’d like to discover who was responsible and before he could start his investigation properly, which it seems a cover up is involved, he finds himself in his own mystery with a quiet - sweet tempered librarian, who also happens to be a little accident prone. She needed help and has been constantly on his mind since they met. Are these two incidents connected, they seem to be but how is a puzzle, and why is Michael is having warm - caring feelings for someone after 400 yrs? An new mystery series with a difference, vampires. The story outline is set and the characters all have their roles in this exciting new series. They are all very well developed, interesting and funny with amazing dialogue for each. I enjoyed it very much. We’re left with a cliffhanger and I look forward to the continuation of this intriguing mystery.
