When nice-girl Kate McGraw finds herself working at Tasty, a magazine with its finger on the pulse of modern style, she’s finally able to put her flair for fashion to good use. But can she keep up with the Tasty staffers? Ethereally beautiful and extremely emaciated, they stay out all night, never look the worse for wear, and are always dressed to kill.

Like everyone else around the office, Kate finds herself begrudgingly reading dispatches from a snarky industry blog that dubs her colleagues “bloodthirsty vamps.” She knows they don’t mean it literally, but . . . she’s heard whispers of “fashion murders” and she has noticed strange things around the office: Like, why doesn’t her boss get laminates to fix her sharp teeth? Why are the blinds always drawn, and why is there a no-garlic policy in the cafeteria?

As well-dressed bodies begin to pile up near all the hot places, Kate has to wonder if there’s a serial killer loose with a grudge against the stylish. Or if the truth is even more sinister: Are Kate’s coworkers actually undead? And, if so, can she design an exit strategy before she finds herself at Tasty forever?

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vampires and Fashion! This was a good read. Not top of my list, but we all have different tastes, right?! I enjoyed it enough to read it through to the end and that says a lot for me. I would recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wickedly Chic This book mixes two of my favorite things, vampires and fashion, so it was a must read, and it was surprisingly really good. It was filled with suspense, romance and humor, and was a page turner from beginning to end that keeps you guessing the whole way.
