Vampire hunter Anita Blake leaps into uncharted territory in the all-new enovella from Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton.

Anita is determined to have a good time with her family, just like everyone else. But it doesn't take long for tensions to rise among the adults and kids. And Anita will learn that gossip and innuendo can be just as dangerous as anything the undead can throw at her...
