Undead and Unemployed: Book Review

Undead and Unempoyed is the second book in the Queen Betsy series by Mary Janice Davidson.

I finished this book a few days ago, but with the holidays I have been super busy.

" Nothing can make Betsy Taylor give up her shoe fetish- even dying and rising as the new Queen of the Vampires. Being royally undead isn't all it's cracked up to be- there are still bills to be paid. And Betsy is determined to live as normally as possible, even if it means getting a job. A "feet" she accomplishes with panache, landing her dream job selling designer shoes at Macy's.
" Things couldn't be better- except for her new friends, who keep oestering her while she's on the clock. As if she has time to socialise when there are deliciously sinful shoes to try on- and buy at a discount. It seems that vampires are being murdered in St. Paul, and they're all clamoring for Betsy to do something about it. The worst part is she's going to have to enlist the help of the one vamp who makes her blood boil: the oh-so-sexy Sinclair. Now, she's really treading on dangerous ground- high heels and all."
(Above is what you will read on the back cover of book)

I am finding this series to be very entertaining and light, not to mention fast reads! I love that Mary Janice Davidson as made the super natural world collide with the fashion world, it is classic!! If I were ever to become Queen of the Vampires, I would take notes from Queen Betsy, after all I would want to step by best foot forward! HA HA HA!

I give this book a 4 stars on my rating system, I am almost done with the third in the series so stay tuned, and let's not forget 2009 is just around the corner so all of my challenges will start.... wit woo!

Until next time....
Happy Reading!

I think I'll look into this series. The way you put it it might be worth a try. And the praragraphs you quoted are really funny.

I have got to start this series.. I am intimidated to start a new series, because I become obsessed and have to read them all at once!

I'm going to look into this one. Thanks for giving us the real poop instead of the usual back-of-the-book tripe we get from the publishers.
