Blurb from Goodreads

Just when Betsy Taylor think she's adjusted to her after-life as a vampire queen, fate intervenes. It's bad enough having to view your own grave-stone but now Betsy's even started seeing dead people - an assortment of demanding ghosts who are determined to make her do their bidding. Betsy also has some personal stuff to deal with - not least of which is planning her Spring - and Midnight - wedding to Sinclair. Meanwhile her half-sister is starting to display signs of inheriting her real mother's temper. And when your mother's the devil, that's cause for concern.

My Review

Betsy Taylor is back in the fourth installment of the vampire Queen series. She is still loving her designer, her labels and Sinclair but she has more issues to deal with from vampire servants, being Queen, a Devil for a sister and ghosts needing to say goodbyes or redemption.

It has been a while since I read Betsy however once you are a few chapters in things start to come back, and there is a wee recap from the first book half way through. I think I had forgotten the tone of these books, naughty, dirty, tongue in cheek and lots of swearing and sex. Some days it made from a nice break from reality however others and parts of the book seemed aimed maybe at a younger audience. As in the attitude and some of the things Betsy came away with was something a rebellion teen would say.

Sinclair and Betsy are planning their wedding, in the conventional sense, and things are always getting in the way. Dates changing, details of flowers, the book of the dead, arguments however I couldn't say this was the main focus of the book as there is a killer on the loose and Betsy is on the case. There seemed to be a few things going on in the book and I couldn't honestly say one way of the other which was the big themed one as it flipped around.

I felt it was a bit scattered and did a lot of ground work for potentially the next book, I will catch up with Betsy to see where their adventure goes next but I don't think it will be for a wee while. Funny, silly and naughty although frustrating at some points it is a 3 out of 5 for me this time.

  1. This does sound like a cute series overall. I've heard of these before.

  2. Is this some "chick flick"? I am proud to say I've been reading more lately, yey for me! You were asking about my camera, I use a Nikon D800E, with different lenses, but lately I seem to just snap around than taking my time to set the camera properly.. :)
