Undead and Unreturnable

My first book that I read in the New Year is Undead and Unreturnable by Mary Janice Davidson. I realize this series is the only books I have reviewd lately and although I still have two more books in the series to read, I am going to pick up another book to read, just to spice things up. Stay tuned to see what book it will be.

Anyways back to Undead and Unreturnable.....

" This is how my tombstone read:
Elizabeth Anne Taylor
April 25, 1974- April 25, 2004
Our sweetheart, only resting

" Only, I was resting under it. I had, of course, died in the spring. Rose in the early dawn hours the day of my funeral and gone undead walkabout. Since my body was MIA, the funeral was canceled. But my mother, who had been in a huge fight with my dad and stepmom about what to spend on my marble tombstone, had rushed to order the thing. By the time it was finished, no funeral, no service, no burial. So anyway, my tombstone had been in storage for the last six months.

" After a while, the funeral home had politely contacted my mother and asked what she'd like to do with it. Since Mom had the plot and stone paid for, she had them stick it in the dirt two days ago and them mentioned it at lunch yesterday.

"Jessica and Laura had been morbidly curious to see it, and I'd tagged along. What the hell, it made for a break from wedding arrangements and Christmas cards....

So begins the newest hilarious adventure in the life of Betsy Taylor, reluctant Queen of the Vampires. It's Christmastime in the kingdom of the undead ( otherwise known as Minneaplois), which is as complicated as it sounds. Betsy isn't going to let a little thing like death and blood-drinking stop her from enjoying the holidays and planning her upcoming wedding to drop-dead gorgeous vamp Eric Sinclair. But all is not merry and bright- Betsy is plagued by ghosts who demand her help in rectifing their past mistakes, and a serial killer is on the loose. With his victims all being tall, blond women. Betsy fits the profile exactly...."

Dum-Da Da- Dum!

This book as it all... humor, love, drama all tied up in the Undead! And you think your family get together's have drama! I don't think so!! HA HA HA!

On my rating scale I am going to have to give this book.... hmm... crap.... sorry Mary Janice Davidson, this book is only going to get a 3 star out of me! Only because I have read the others in the series... I have faith in you girl, the next two you are going to nail lit! Like how I talked to the author like she is ever going to read my little ol' blog!? HA!

Until next time....
Happy Reading!
