Behind the seemingly innocuous facade of St. Mary's Institute of Historical Research, a different kind of academic work is taking place. Just don't call it time travel - these historians investigate major historical events in contemporary time. And they aren't your harmless eccentrics either; a more accurate description, as they ricochet around history, might be unintentional disaster magnets.

Sarah Anderson has found her dream job: Clerk of Court for the District of Columbia Night Court. Dream job, that is, until she’s attacked in the open courtroom by a vampire defendant. And until she’s forced to take self-defense lessons from her boss, the enigmatic vampire James Morton. And until she learns that she can’t share the truth about any of that with her best friend, Allison Ward – even over delectable cupcakes from the Cake Walk bakery.

Let me start by saying that I really loved this book. However,in all my years of listening to audible, I have never slammed a narrator like I am about to…the narration was absolutely horrific.
This narrator mispronounced SO many words that it was painful to listen to! Common words!On top of that, she couldn't even say a full sentence without putting weird pauses every 5 or 6 words, no matter what the punctuation originally indicated. I don't know who was the producer, but they obviously were NOT doing their job the day this was recorded.
I did listen to the entire thing because I really liked the story, but I will be buying the e-books for any future books with this narrator.

I enjoyed the story and I would like to go on with the series but I cannot bear to drag through another book at this pace!!
When I'm listening to a story, i want people to speak as they do in real life. No one that I know speaks this slowly....ugh!

Whatever reason they had for changing the narrator, it was a bad decision....at least get someone that didn't make them sound like backwoods hicks and wimps to boot!
I am seriously considering just buying the books from now on because I can't stand this narrator!

It’s her special “talent” which makes Cadence so valuable to the FBI, and it never comes in handier than when she and her partner, George, get tagged to bring down the Threefer Killer. A serial killer who inexplicably likes to kill in threes, leave behind inexplicable newspaper clippings, and not one shred of decent forensic evidence, soon starts leaving messages that seem to be just for Cadence and her sisters. Could it be that this killer knows all about Cadence’s special “talent”?

It is a strange world that these characters live in, and the characters themselves are what makes it so bizarre. Despite the weird, I came to like the sisters. I would have liked to know what happened after this book ended.
