Betsy Taylor thought entering the world of the undead was a big adjustment. Being a new bride isn’t much easier. The blush has only been on for two months, and Betsy has a lot to do: set up the new house, finish writing thank-you notes, and raise BabyJon, her half brother and legal ward. Just another happy American family adjusting to marital bliss.
Betsy’s husband, Sinclair, has been perusing the Book of the Dead, and Betsy’s visited by a ghost who’s even more insufferable, stubborn, and annoying in death than she was in life. She not only blames Betsy for her condition but insists she fix it. It’s all just a prelude to the fun and games awaiting Betsy and Sinclair when a pack of formerly feral vampires, hungry for blood and power, pays a visit to the happy couple.
Again, another entertaining addition to the Undead series. As with its predecessors, I listened to the audiobook while working out and doing household chores. These books are great for that because your full attention is not necessary to keep up with the story.
There is no intellectual value here; the series is purely for entertainment. The main character is still just as self-centered and airheaded as always and it is funny. The narrator is wonderful and nails Betsy’s character.
Just as with the others, if you listen to the audiobook, you may not want to have it on speaker if there are kiddos around. There is a lot of profanity and some graphic sex throughout the series.
I definitely recommend the entire series so far if you are interested in a light read, vampire comedy.
