Welcome to Cider Hollow, where the pies are magic and the people are disappearing.

Pie witch Reese is living her dream: running the bakery she's always wanted, selling magical pies, and landing a date with handsome Prince Forrest of the Autumn Court. But then people around her start vanishing, returning hours or days later with no memory of their missing time.

When her delivery boy is the next victim, Reese sets aside her pies, determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. But her prince is just as determined to keep her out of harm's way, keeping her in the dark and even pushing her out of his own investigation.

Then the disappearances accelerate, hitting closer to home and leaving her with little choice but to get involved.

Can Reese bake up a plan to save the town? Or will she be the next to disappear?

Vanilla Bean Vampire is the first in the Pie-Jinks series, a new contemporary fantasy that is perfect for fans of Gilmore Girls and Mercy Thompson. If you like light, small-town stories, whimsical magic, and a touch of both romance and high-stakes mystery, you will love Selina J. Eckert's new book!

This book takes place after the events of Pumpkin Spice Pie-Jinks in the Seasons of Magic: Pumpkins & Shades series, but Vanilla Bean Vampire can be read as a standalone. You do not need to read the novella to enjoy this series


School starting, pumpkin spice is brewing at the coffee shops, and we are just waiting for that first crisp autumn morning to arrive. Vanilla Bean Vampire is the perfect way to enjoy this time of year. It’s a nice light read, with lots of baking, especially of pies, wonderful fae and vampire characters, and of course, our leading hair-changing color fae baker Reese. Reese has attracted the attention of the handsome fae prince forest who is looking to establish his court near cider hollow. Reese recently opened a pie shop, and her business is booming, but several people go missing with no memory of what happened. It is time to unravel the clues while baking some delicious pies and maybe falling in love with Forest. I thoroughly enjoyed every wonderful pie baking moment in this story, and there is just something about baking and a mystery to solve that go so well together.
