Funny, charming, wicked and light. A great change of pace. ( )

Pure silliness with an extra helping of snark on the side. Once I grew accustomed to the author's writing style, this cute little urban fantasy turned into a fun read. Betsy is having a bad day. She's been laid off from her secretarial job, is killed in an accident, and now she's trying to figure out why she's not dead. Suspending belief wasn't an issue. I simply couldn't take anything in this book seriously. My brain enjoyed the break though and I snickered all the way through the last page. I could've done without the weird sex, hence the three stars instead of four, but that's just my personal preference. It was just a little too crass and a little too close to the erotica genre for my taste.

What I liked: I got a big kick out of Betsy's sass. Even when being kidnapped, she became the tormentor, driving the villains to the point of hysteria with her sarcasm. I loved that she never cowered or backed down from a fight. Sinclair was also a fun character and added a bit of pizzazz to the story. This is a great start and the series has lots of potential. I will continue with book 2. This should be read on a rainy day when you need a quick laugh. Definitely adult material. ( )

The main character, Betsy, is a newly created vampire who doesn't get hung up on all of the old vampire traditions. She is fun, irreverant and totally entertaining. I will be reading more in the Queen Betsy series. ( )

LOL funny ! I love the characters ! I just chuckled through the whole book. Betsy the main character is so realistic,so vocal. She says loudly what some of us (me) only think about. I think I may have found some great lines to use in the future too ! ( )

This book is dedicated to Anthony Alongi, my editor, my partner, my bearded nemesis, and my friend. All praise to my darling husband.
First words
The day I died started out bad and got worse in a hurry.
Hampton & Son, realizing about a year too late that they had to slash costs, decided administrative layoffs were the way to go as opposed to, say, cutting the six figure salaries of senior management. The clerks and secretaries had been deemed expendable. But vengeance would be ours. Without us, those twits couldn't even send a fax, much less run the company. (chapter 1)
I love my cat. She's a pain in the ass, but she's dependable, and has never once told me to change my shirt because I look like a crack whore in periwinkle blue. Heck, the whole reason I was in this fix was, in part, because of Giselle, but I hadn't gotten rid of her, or even snacked on her. I was definitely a cat person.

Which is why it was unbelievably annoying that dogs now found me irresistible. Before I woke up in the funeral home, I had ignored dogs, and they had ignored me, and we'd gone about our separate business. No longer. (chapter 11)
