You know when you've made that order on Amazon and it's nearly $25? You've almost got free shipping, if only... But this time I had two books in mind that each cost less than $4. I should have saved one till next time I suppose, but patience kept me from purchasing them all through last year, so I just ordered both.

Dracula doesn't live here anymore is a fun evening's read. The cover picture makes me think of teenagers, but the story's more grown-up. Freelance reporter Dexter is on his way to Romania, investigating the hyped-up "vampire murders" that have been occurring there. His contact, Christina, introduces him to amazing scenery, fascinating history, and delightful tiny village inns in forgotten villages. She has other delights to offer too as Dexter begins to fall for her.

Can a wounded young man find love again? Is there any hope for transcontinental relationships? And do vampires exist? Dead bodies and live theories abound, and surprises, and a sweetly-born love. All that, in a 31-page novella with an absolutely perfect ending. If only Brian Porter's full-length novels were in paperback...
