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.

The Perfect Listen for a Vacation Getaway...

I have long been a fan of Charlaine Harris. She is probably tied with Jim Butcher as my favorite author ever. And the fact that she is a native Mississippian (like me) has NOTHING to do with it. But she has an absolute talent for developing characters, and none so much as Sookie Stackhouse. This book opens with a Sookie short story, and believe it or not, that's just the beginning of the ride. I got drawn into reading anthology short stories because of Harry Dresden (Jim Butcher's "The Dresden Files" novels) and Sookie and all their "out of novel adventures" and this one rates among my top anthology favorites. Plus, I love the fact that when Ms. Harris and Ms. Kelner do an anthology, it is usually themed around some holiday or situation we mere "mortals" would normally think mundane. Like Summer Vacation. So before you hit the beach for a weekend getaway, or take a full blown two weeks off in some vast foreign land, be sure to grab this audiobook first. After all, it's not just the vacation that's important - it's the getting there and then getting back again that counts more.

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.
