Tantalize (Audio)

I've written about Tantalize before, but I just finished the audio version and wanted to give a little review of it.
Here is a quick synopsis:
Quincie, the main character, is drawn into a world of vampires and werecreatures where her best friend is a werewolf. She is determined to open a vampire themed restaurant but the plan stumbles when the head chef is murdered. Enter Henry Johnson, a chef that no one would consider dark and mysterious, to take over. Will Quincie be able to open her restaurant and resist the temptations that are offered to her? This is how to write a good vampire/werewolf triangle. It is one of those books that will stay with you long after you've finished shuddering.

It is interesting how differently you see the actions in a book on a second reading (or listening in this case). I read this the first time but decided to try the audio when I started reading the follow-up novel Eternal (not a direct sequel). Kim Mai Guest is the narrator and she does an excellent job. Her voice is soft and slow and she adds a dreamy quality to the book. She does a great job of making Quincie's choices sound realistic. This was an excellent audiobook.
