best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him. It''s up
to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all

Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend
and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe.

romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is
