Publisher's Summary

It really can be an endless summer — if you’re immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all — and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist — are many….

Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire friend Pam take a weekend getaway to Mississippi in number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris’s “Two Blondes”. And when they end up in a shady gentleman’s club, to escape in one piece they need to do something that wasn’t on their itinerary — something involving a stage, a pole, and very little clothing.

New York Times best-selling author Katie MacAlister’s “The Perils of Effrijim” follows a demon whose vacation in Paris is disrupted when he’s banished to another plane, thus kicking off a crazy dimension-hopping road trip across Europe.

Protecting an heiress from supernatural hit men isn’t Cat and Bones’s idea of a relaxing vacation in New York Times best-selling author Jeaniene Frost’s “One for the Money”, but it could get worse. And it does — when Cat’s mother shows up.

Editors Harris and Kelner bring together a stellar collection of tour guides who offer vacations frightening, funny, and touching — for the fanged, the furry, the demonic, and the grotesque.

Good stories but frustrating editing

Any additional comments?

Some of the stories were really good and others were just okay. Overall I gave this anthology 3 stars rather than 4 because the editing from story to story included less than a breath's space. I was so frustrated! The story would end and becasue of the nature of these stories and often an unexpected ending, I would have liked to have had a few seconds of silence before the next story. Instead it felt liek the next story started before the narrator of the last story even took a breath. It was very distracting and annoying.

What a letdown

Have read all of the Charlaine Harris books and I knew that this was a collection of short stories when I purchased it. Her story was just mediocre. The other author that I have read a lot of Jeaniene Frost was just as disappointing. The rest were really boring. I paid for the book and could hardly stand it...........I almost always finish a book, but this was an exception

Be sure to read the full description before buying

This is not a new Sookie Stackhouse book. In fact it's about one chapter of Sookie and then a lot of other stories. I'm very upset with my self for not reading the full description before buying.

what a fun read

Having read several of the authors listed in this collection, I knew I would likely have a decent listen. I wasn't expecting the fully fun experience I had, though. This collection of shorts was so enjoyable to go through, I found myself wanting longer stories from these authors, and yet couldn't wait for each to be over and start a new one. I was happy to hear little blurbs about each of the authors, as several were new to me. The genre was familiar and exactly what I expected from the authors I knew of already. Have fun!

Death's Excellent Vacation

This was not worth the credit I paid. This was the most boring short stories I've ever read.

Great stories!

I purchased this to listen to the latest Sookie and for the Jim story by Katie MacAlister (I just love that big dog!) and what I got out of it was a few more authors I'm going to be reading more from! None of the stories are very long but they are all great! After listening to Ms. Frost's story about Cat, I immediately downloaded the first in her series and now I'm hooked! I'm off to look for the other authors too. This is definitely and 'Excellent' book!

Really fun!

This was a great introduction to some authors I'd not yet read. Of course, Sookie was the reason I made this purchase, and I really enjoyed the other stories--even laughed out loud a few times. I just wish all the stories had been narrated by Christopher Lane.

boaring

Maybe Mrs Harris likes those other author but I didn't. Maybe my hope were too high but the purchase wasn't worth it at all. Wish I could go back in time and save 20$

deception..(NOT A CHARLAINE HARRIS BOOK)

Inspite of its title and top billing, this is a collection of very short stories from several authors only one of which is Charlaine Harris, don't purchase if you are expecting her work.
