In this fifth book in the Wendy Darlin Tomb Raider series, you are cordially invited to the destination wedding of Wendy Darlin, tomb raider, and Dr. Roger Jolley, world-renowned archaeologist. The wedding is to be held at the Van Helsing Resort and Spa in Loutish, Vulgaria. In lieu of wedding gifts please bring whole garlic heads. The ceremony will begin once the 40 bloodless monks are contained in Carfax Abbey.
Until last year Wendy Darlin was a full-time real-estate agent for Miami Beach millionaires. Then she met Roger Jolley, world-famous archaeologist, Johnny Depp lookalike, and at times the most irritating person on the planet. Join her as she travels the globe in search of lost treasures and antiquities. She's been told her life is like the movie Romancing the Stone, but at times she feels more like Indiana Jones with boobs.

Thank you Audiobookblast(dot)com
I liked the humor, and play on words.
Sometimes the book got a bit too silly.
yes, the book was fun, light and amusing. If I'm in the mood for a lighthearted book I would try another book by this author.
A GOOD JOB
Yes the series needs to continue. The story has not concluded regarding the hero and heroine. There is definitely room for more hilarious adventures for the heroes

If you are in the mood for a humorous, lighthearted, not at all serious vampire satire, then this book fits the bill.
Think Transylvania 6-5000, Airplane, and Young Frankenstein and you may have a clue about how coffee-snorting funny this book is! Wendy Darlin and her hunk of an archaeologist, Roger Jolley are 7 months pregnant and Roger has chosen the Van Helsing Resort and Spa in Vulgaria for their wedding. But there is no clergy, Roger has an ulterior motive, and Renfield, Bram, Squirl are part of the cast. There is a plot, and old movie references abound. Do not listen to this book unless you are prepared to laugh yourself silly.
Laura Jennings is a terrific audio performer, and gives voice to all these characters. And there is no evidence that she cracked up helplessly while performing this farce!

Stars: Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5
First off – you don’t have to have read / listened to the earlier titles in this series (although for pure fun – you’ll want to). You don’t want to approach this title like anything out there: it’s a mystery of sorts, a romance in the snarkiest sense of the word, and always over the top in humor. Be warned – if you haven’t a sense of humor – this is not the series for you.
Wendy and her new husband are finally taking their honeymoon trip in Vulgaria. Of course, Wendy needs for Roger to understand that seven months pregnant is NOT a time when she wants to deal with murders, mobsters or weirdness. Perhaps they shouldn’t have checked into the Van Helsing Resort and Spa?
Oh – the hits just keep on coming! Both Wendy and Roger are attempting to clean up their language so as not to barrage or disturb ‘Little Roger”, but when the actual reasons for choosing that particular resort come to light- all bets are off. Toss in a BFF in the form of Kit, vampires, a dead ex-husband, mobsters and a Vatican investigations team and the plot just spins out in ever widening circles to encompass the multiple characters and their competing agendas.
Narration by Laura Jennings is spectacular – I can’t imagine keeping all of the characters and voices straight, let alone not burst into giggles with the sheer absurdity of the many elements of the plot. Silkstone never loses the joy that Wendy brings – with her offbeat attempts at optimism and courage against formidable odds, and Jennings keeps that tone fresh and new. Even in Wendy’s less “charitable’ or ‘friendly’ hormone-infused moments. A truly fun installment in a wonderfully quirky series.
I received an audiobook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
