The bloodsucker is still on the prowl in Albany Beach in Sheíll Never Live, the final book of Hunter Morganís three book series. It seems beautiful blonde-haired, blue-eyed women are still being drained of their blood and left near dumpsters as if they were garbage. Combine this fact with the heat of late summer and youíll find that tempers are running short all over town. Much of the blame is being placed on police chief Claire Drummondís shoulders.

It isnít as if Claire doesnít have enough on her shoulders as she spends hour upon hour investigating this disturbing case and then going home to deal with her recently-gone-Goth daughter, who is determined to turn Claireís hair gray way before her time. When Graham Simpson shows up on her doorstep to show his support and to offer her a shoulder on which to cry, she is leery. After all everyone in town is a suspect at this point.

As the entire town continues to panic, the bloodsucker is planning his next murder and he knows just the perfect victim. Claire has no idea that he plans to make her next on his list. Heís figured out that her daughter would be the perfect way to get Claire exactly where he wants her.

Although I hadnít figured out who the killer was by the end of the series, I found most of the rest of the storyline predictable. I didnít find the romance quite as great in this third book as in her second book. The entire series read like a roller coaster for me with a slow start, a great middle and then a declining end. However, for those readers who like being able to read an entire series in a short amount of time, this series offers a great way to do just that.
