Mother, wife, private investigator--and vampire.


Samantha Moon, is a female vampire with a husband and children. Those predate her condition; six years ago she was attacked by a vampire and rendered into one. Now she's trying to carry on with family and private eye business, and she's a feisty, skilled person, so is doing mostly okay. But her husband has an increasing problem with her coldness-not of spirit, but of body.

She really doesn't deserve to be frozen out of her marriage, yet his attitude is understandable. In the course of the novel she solves the mystery she is tackling for a client, and finds a new romantic interest.

Samantha Moon was turned into a vampire 6 years ago. Since then, she has gone about her life as best she can, with no idea what being a vampire entails. She drinks cow blood, slathers sunscreen on herself, and became a private investigator.

She’s a smart mouth, and has a habit of thinking every guy she meets is attractive. The book is full of cliches, but it was also funny and not a bad read. There are some editing mistakes, extra words and spots where a word was missed out on. But nothing that made the book hard to read or understand.

Falling for her client so quickly, especially when she was married, just seemed a bit fast for me. Yes, the marriage is over, and her husband acted like an asshole about it. But it just didn’t click with me. I was also expecting her to get his help with her soon-to-be divorce, since he’s this ace attorney and all. Maybe in the next book.

It was a cute read, but not a perfect fit for me. If you like vampire books, especially ones with detective/police work in them, I’d give this one a try. Just don’t expect great things, it’s more of a fun/fluff read.
