I loved the written version of this book, but the audio version left me unimpressed. Not sure I can pinpoint why, but it was just 'meh'.
Loved this book and can't wait to hear the next. Perfect mix of paranormal, some romance and humor! I was looking for a new series after finishing Charlaine Harris Sookie series, I think I've found my new series! yay:)
If you like the Shopaholic type books and vampires you will love this series. Queen Betsy is great. I just listened to the first book in the series a week ago and I am all ready on book three. I normally wait for my credits but could not wait to get to the next book in this series. The narrator is great and sounds just like what I thought Betsy would sound like. This is not a hard core mystery book, it is a little mystery with a lot of fun and a little sex tossed in for good measure. FYI this is not a young adult book, even though there is not a ton of sex it is pretty graphic when there is so I would not recommend to young adult readers.
Like all of you, I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors. I am currently listening to 'Cold Days' by Jim Butcher.
MaryJanice Davidson is fantastic. Her stories are witty and well-constructed, and she has created a wonderful protagonist. Betsy is superbly shallow. This series is a convergence of Sex in the City, the Shopaholic novel series, and paranormal/urban fantasy. Enjoy it. I know I did :)
The main character, Betsy, is so shallow and so one dimensional that the book is quite slow. It was hard to engage with the characters until about 2/3 of the way into the book. Even then, the characters still lack dimension, but at least a plot begins to develop.
This book series is a fun light read. It makes me laugh and reminds me of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer original movie and the Clueless movie- both of which I liked and laughed at. It's not too deep, but if you want a fun series to read I would suggest this one- the characters are all very likable and the narrator is very good.
I loved this book and the reader. I really like stumbling upon a good series. I love Betsy's attitude on her new station in life.
