Review: Undead And Unwed - MaryJanice Davidson
Author: MaryJanice Davidson
It's been a helluva week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, to top things off, she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother) is that she can't seem to stay dead. Every night she rises, with a horrible craving for blood. She's not taking too well to a liquid diet. Worst of all, her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious, power-hungry vampire in five centuries- a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe, natch. Frankly, Betsy couldn't care less about vamp politics, but they have a powerful weapon of persuasion: designer shoes. How can any self-respecting girl say no? But a collection of Ferregamos isn't the only temptation for Betsy. It's just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair- a seductive bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the heart...
I love Betsy! Funny, funny, funny! Undead And Unwed is one of ten books in the Undead - Betsy series. Here Betsy has her 30th birthday and then bites the big one...or rather it bites her. This is not your typical vampire lit. This is 98% hilarity and 2% detective mystery!! I don't usually enjoy books with shop-a-holics, but this one made me laugh. I might just give the other shop-a-holics' books a shot!
Betsy is having a tough week, first she lost her job then, she gets killed by some stupid car because of her cat. And to top it off, she awakes every night with a blood thirst. But when she turns out to be a queen, how can she handle anymore?
