'Brenda and Effie Forever!' is an outrageous Gothic adventure involving ancient vampires, miniature mermaids, the Phantom of the Opera and his hunchbacked boyfriend, a fiendish ghost who drives a limousine, Mr and Mrs Claus and all three Bronte sisters discovered alive and well in a secret base under the parsonage at Haworth with a sentient, stuffed Art Critic called Panda.
Brenda and Effie are living it up on the continent. Holidaying in Paris, they are menaced by a mysterious Peeping Tom with a limp and a hump, who warns them that they must never return home to Whitby again.
Untold disaster will take over the world if they go anywhere near the North Yorkshire coast...But Brenda and Effie know that they simply have to return to Whitby, even if it means the end of everything they hold dear.
Brenda owns a Guest House by the sea and her best friend Effie runs the junk shop next door.
But together they have another role as the guardians of Whitby against the vampires, daemons and creatures of the night that continually plague the quaint but terrifying town. Together Brenda and Effie must face the most startling dangers ever as they are engulfed by hideous secrets from their long-hidden pasts. Can our heroines survive all these fiendish shenanigans and live to fight the powers of darkness another day?

Review by polarbear123
Brenda and Effie's final adventure? It certainly seems so. Forget the story here though because if you have read any of the other Brenda and Effie mysteries you know exactly what to expect. What is interesting though is that for some strange reason this is another publisher at work here - why? what happened with the previous publisher? a falling out? One more thing - there are many mistakes in the prose, scattered throughout the book. It really seems like this was a hurried affair and it doesn't particularly round of the series with any real sense of satisfaction. A missed opportunity.
