Vampires and Villains by Elizabeth Pantley
Paige and her joyful Aunt Glo have learned that the home they inherited comes with a magical library. They put together a book club group of loveable kooks to explore the magic. They’ve recovered from their first book journey, and they all agree on their next book which takes place on a cruise ship bound for Hawaii. Problem is, they were so excited about the cruising idea that they didn’t read the entire blurb on the back of the book. (“It was entirely too long,” explains Zell.) Once on the ship, they meet a charming and likeable man who blends seamlessly into their motley group. Too bad they don’t know why he’s so scarce during the day but shows up to join them every evening for dinner, drinks, and a show. When a dead body shows up on board, their new friend is labeled a suspect. Can they help him out by finding the real murderer? Or is he the real murderer? The book club will need to solve the case to get off the ship, out of the book, and back to their home.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love to cruise. I've been on many, starting with the first one way-back-when on my honeymoon. But I haven't been on a cruise for almost three years, and I really miss it. So what's a writer to do? Take a cruise vicariously through her characters! Yep, the book club is taking a Hawaiian cruise in Vampires and Villains!
If you've ever taken a cruise, their journey will feel familiar to you. If you've ever been on a Princess cruise ship you might find this boat familiar, since Princess is my favorite cruise line. If you've never cruised be prepared, you're about to get the full experience. Although I've never actually seen a vampire on any of my cruises . . .
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Many of my characters have their roots in someone I know or a character from a movie or TV series I love. In the Magical Mystery Book Club series, you’ll meet Zell. She's an 80-year-old spitfire. You'll see that all my elderly characters have spunk and energy. They have a fantastic sense of humor, and very few filters. They demonstrate that age is just a number and doesn't need to limit you. I have a great example of this in my very own home! My 88-year-old mom. She is very Zell-like and keeps us laughing and on our toes.
