This was just a classic 90’s YA vampire story. Cynda’s off to remote Maine to live with her father, step-mother and little half-brother, now that her mother is moving to Italy. They run an inn by the sea – an inn supposedly haunted by the ghost of a young woman who died there years ago.
Cynda naturally doesn’t want to to go to Maine, but she’s making the first tentative steps to fitting in when a mysterious guest rocks up to the inn in the dead of winter, and seduces her. Naturally, he turns out to be a vampire, and the ghostly young woman was his last victim. Cynda must save herself and her family from his spell.
This is a quick read – pure vampire/teen angst slock, but a nice diversion between other books.
