     Sixteen year old Quincie has lost many people in her life, but she is determined to keep her grandparents restaurant going even after being orphaned as an early teen.  Her uncle and guardian come up with the idea to remake the family style Italian restaurant on a vampire theme after they lose too much business to newer chain eateries.  So far, just a story of a plucky survivor- but wait!  There?s more.  Did mention her best friend (and potential boyfriend) is a half-breed werewolf?  Her Assistant Principal and several of her classmates aren?t exactly human?  And after the murder of the restaurant?s longtime chef- the new chef is something else?  Welcome to Sanguini's very rare restaurant!  A nicely paced and enticing story that will resonate with readers of Meyer's TWILIGHT or de la Cruz's BLUE BLOODS.  A very tantalizing entry into the vampire fiction genre.
