Jane Jameson is a children's librarian who gets fired by her mean boss, then on the same day gets accidentally shot. The handsome stranger (Gabriel Nightengale) who saves her is a vampire, so she's turned into a vampire, too.

This is the second book in the mystery series set in the small town of Three Pines, Quebec, and featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec. (Smart, experienced, and patient - he's just what you want in a chief inspector). A woman nobody likes is electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake while watching a game of curling, and Gamache and his team have to figure out who the murderer is. The characters of the townspeople are interesting and appealing and well developed - you really get to know them and their individual personalities. Three Pines just seems so pleasant and cozy. The first book in the series is Still Life. These are great books, especially if you like your cozy mysteries with a little French mixed in.
