Book Blurb

It’s Halloween in Waikiki, the holiday some call “Devil Night.” Tem and Divine Thunder, celebrating their first Halloween together, invite all their family, friends, neighbors, and former gay-porn co-stars to Trick or Treat. Tem’s gone berserk hiring caterers from every single island, and they’ve even built a spook house on their property for the festivities and planned moonlight pony rides.

Tem’s in full-scale party diva mode when things start going horribly wrong. One by one, their guests start disappearing, and even Tem’s beloved cat, Moontime, goes missing. And then from their mountaintop home on Tantalus, they see that Chinatown is on fire.

Tem and Div throw themselves into action, but are they too late to solve the mystery of what’s happening and stop the madness?

Book Review

What could possibly be more fun than celebrating Halloween when you're a vampire? Especially if you're Jimmy and Tem, plus you've invited half the island to a giant Trick or Treat party at your house? I wanted to be there, I can tell you that! What a party - vampires, people disappearing, Chinatown on fire, Blossom and Nonita crashing, good eats....well, before the people started disappearing. *grins*

I adore Tem and how he loves to have a party and wear a tiara. I mean, really? Who wouldn't love to wear a real tiara? And Tem pretty much rocks that look. Of course, the night of the party poor Tem and Jimmy have to deal with this strange Japanese woman who came from Tokyo to help them set up a silkworm production factory. Tem knows there's just something off about this woman, but he can't put his finger on it, other than being jealous because she seems to be mesmerizing Jimmy.

What a scary and fun Halloween, all at the same time! Trust Tem and Jimmy to throw the wildest party on the island. Of course Tem was sad and felt like a failure when all the guests left due to the fires. Not to worry, though, Jimmy always knows how to cheer his lover up. Or, maybe the guests didn't leave? Thank you, A.J., this was fun.
