Clean Sweep Review

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is...different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, "normal" is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night....Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything. 

**Review**: Once again, the fantastic husband and wife team of Ilona Andrews has written a killer story. As a fan of EVERYTHING they've written, I am always a bit wary beforehand that THIS is where they will hit their slump. Not a chance in hell!

I had no idea when I started reading it that this was a story for the fans that had been released in a quasi-chapbook formula to get feedback while the story was actually happening. It was engrossing, compelling, and wonderful. Definitely earned my five fangs. (Also, made me want to open an inter-galactic inn, but you'll have to read the book to understand what I mean.) :D 
Soundtrack Suggestions?  I had a ton of Enigma going on while I read this & it worked like a charm.
