So, I opened the cover and delved into the story of Jessica Matthews who becomes a vampire after being attacked while taking out the garbage one evening. The single mother of two awakes after her ordeal to find herself sucking on the thigh of a sexy Irish vampire named Patrick O'Halloran.
Michele Bardsley has penned one of the funniest and most original vampire novels I've read in quite some time. Jessica is a wise-cracking, subarban housewife and mother just trying to raise her kids the best way she knows how in a town that is slowly dying around them. Now she is one of the undead. What's a mom to do? Her life becomes more and more complicated as the tale unravels and she gets caught smack dab in the middle of a war between vampires.
Funny, quirky and sexy are the three best words to describe this book. The second book in the series Don't Talk Back To Your Vampire is currently scheduled to release in July of 2007. (I read the teaser at the back of the book) I'll be picking that one up to read when it hits the shelves.
