Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I really enjoyed this and the second in the series, published at the same time; two more are due later in the year. Crossing romantic comedy with a Buffy-style vampire tale, they are sexy, compulsive, quick to read and the most enormous fun. Betsy, a smart, trim, well-dressed girl with a passion for designer shoes, has a bizarre accident and wakes up alive in a morgue, little knowing she is now a vampire, but no ordinary vampire for garlic, sunlight and holy water do not affect her. As she is drawn into vampire politics, these traits make her stand out and so she is hailed a queen. The mix of vampires and humans is beautifully handled, their relationships developed throughout the books, so do move on to the second.

Comparison: Buffy, Laurell K Hamilton, Anne Rice.
Similar this month: None.

If you like Mary Janice Davidson you might also like to read books by Anne Rice, Laurell K Hamilton and Martha O'connor.

Synopsis

Undead and Unwed by Mary Janice Davidson

'The day I died started out bad and got worse in a hurry...' It's been a hell of a week for Betsy Taylor. First she loses her job. Then she's killed in a freak accident only to wake up as a vampire. On the plus side, being undead sure beats the alternative. She now has superhuman strength and an unnatural effect on the opposite sex. But what Betsy can't handle is her new liquid diet...And whilst Betsy's mother and best-friend are just relieved to find out that being dead doesn't mean Betsy's can't visit, her new 'night-time' friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen. The scrumptious Sinclair and his cohorts want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious power-hungry vampire in five centuries. (A Bella Lugosi wannabe who seen one to many B-movies.) Frankly Betsy couldn't care less about vamp politics. But Sinclair and his followers have a powerful weapon in their arsenal - unlimited access to Manolo Blahnik's Spring collection. Well, just because a girl's dead - er...undead - doesn't mean she can't have great shoes...

Reviews

'What can you say about a vampire whose loyalty can be bought by designer shoes? Can we say, outrageous? A hilarious book'
