Good book. Didn't know that I was jumping into the middle of a series but well worth the read. Was quick and easy to read. A new twist on vampires for me was a nice change. ( )

New story arc. New cover art. Read the intro from MJD...otherwise, you may get royally unhappy. ( )

I liked this book but I will say the continued repetitive references to things from the previous books gets old. The books either need to be written as books with their own story with a little back story reference needed or just give up and assume that the reader has already read the other stories. I would say at least 1/4 of the book is writing of Betsy's thoughts about things that happened in previous books. If you haven't already read the previous books then it just makes you feel like you missed something (like an inside joke you don't quite get) and if you did read the books then it is just repetitive.

I will also say that I did NOT like the ending! I really liked Antonia and Garrett and could not believe that they died. Hopefully they will be coming back as ghosts. ( )

The first half started out strong with Davidson's trademark humor and snarkiness. I've learned to never read her books in public lest I start giggling like an idiot and embarrass myself.

That said, I didn't really care for the second half. The book ended on a serious downer so I really hope the author isn't going to try to make the plotlines more serious from now on.

This series is fantastic for the zany characters and hilarious plot-thickenings. It would be a shame to drown that in real drama. ( )

Book description
Having recently lost her dad and step-mother, Betsy Sinclair (nee Taylor) is adjusting to rather more than just married life. Their untimely deaths have left her and Sinclair as sole guardians of her little brother, Jon. Two vampire parents - albeit vampire royalty - for a decidedly human baby. But then the ghost of Betsy's step-mother turns up at their house. And as stubborn and insufferable as she was in life, she's even more annoying in death ...
