It’s harder now that Sam is a busy lawyer, Alex is chef with her own restaurant and Jo manages a bar while attending the university. A late night arrival finds them once again without electric. Sweltering in the heat, the girls decide to take the first of their late night skinny dips in the cool lake.

They’ve come to hunt a rogue immortal that been biting young women up in cottage country. Since cottages in lake country are about outdoor sun, swimming, fishing and other daytime events, it’s not exactly the natural habitat of ‘vampires’. (more…)
