Dead Is a Killer Tune by Marlene Perez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's always unclear to me why a late series book would be ARCd in large quantities, and in this care I've never heard of the series (not sure what the series is called, except all the books start "Dead is..."). Anyway, I'm glad I got this because It Is Cute.
The premise apparently is that there's a town in California, Nightshade, and Jessica is a virago (a woman warrior) who protects the inhabitants from [vampires/zombies/werewolves/paranormal thingy]. Kind of like Buffy, but not quite as secret (although she does have a trainer and a favorite librarian). There's no Scooby Gang either, but there are cute boys and about seven sisters for her to contend with. This book deals with a Battle of the Bands situation, some wishing powder and the myth of the Pied Piper. Now I need to read books 1-6!
