    Story
    "THANK YOU, THANK YOU LYNSAY"

    Brilliant, as you would expect for LS, this is perhaps not my favourite Argeneau romance story, but it was still a great listen. It mainly focused on Paul and Jeanne Louise's battle to turn both Paul's dying daughter and Paul before it's too late for them both. It was also good to hear what's been happening to the other characters from previous books.

    The only downside is that now I have to wait AGES for the next one in the series.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely - but, if you haven't listened to the rest of the series then do yourself a favor and start at book 1 then work upwards.

    "Another great Argeneau novel"

    I was over the moon when I saw this pop up on the audio list and even more so once I started listening to it. I have the entire series and often listen to my favourites again and again. I would recommend you start this series from the first Novel, although, having said that, I didn't. For some reason I listened to them out of order, and instead in the order of my interest. I soon discovered I love them all so I should have started from the first, this way you get to know the loveable characters and Argeneau family as you go.
    So... if you like Romance with a dash of fantasy, if you enjoy a good laugh more often than not, if you appreciate a steamy love scene that gets you a little heated, if you crave a wee bit of drama and suspense... Gee I could keep going but why read this when you could be listening to this entertaining, addictive series?
    Do yourself a favour and use your credit to purchase 'A Quick Bite' the first novel and before you know it you will be through the series listening to this last one on audio, hanging for the next.

    Story
    "Horrible - Don't Waste Your Money"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one, or atleast they will wish they hadn't if they did purchase it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Ms. Christensen did a horrific job narrating this book - she read without any kind of emotion at all. She read in spurts - one line, stop. One line, stop. Again, no emotion or flow at all. Her attempt trying to create other voices for the other characters was even worse. Why didn't Ms. McGee read this story?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Total disappointment! If the narrator wasn't bad enough, the plot for this story was even worse. Jeanne Louise (JL) gets kidnapped. JL doesn't even try to escape; in fact, she just goes a long with the whole thing. All for the chance the kidnapper is her life mate and for the life of the kidnapper's daughter? Okay, saving a little girl is a great thing, but does it take 9 hours and 45 minutes to do that? There is only so many times you can struggle with the - if I turn the girl, then I lose the chance at my life mate. JL repeats that over and over again until she figures out to change the kidnapper first, and then have him change the little girl. Again, doesn't take 9 hours and 45 minutes to come up with that. The story line dragged horribly; there was no adventure at all - no distress, other than trying to elude JL's family. Which by the way, the family should have found them much earlier then they did with all of their training, abilities and technological capabilities. They've found/caught other characters much quicker in other stories, but for some reason, just didn't seem capable this time? I hope Ms. Sands isn't just trying to pump out a book without really trying to develop the story first. Will there be ( or should I say, should there be) a next book in this series? It looks like Ms. Sands has run out of ideas based on the gripping story line this book had (lots of saracasim here). Don't get me wrong, I've truly enjoyed her other stories in this series. If her next story is as boring as this, I probably won't purchase anymore of her work. One more chance....mix it up! There needs to be adventure, intrigue, struggles, despair, hope, some comedic flubs along the way, hot interludes and a different narrator!

    Story
    "Sucker For Sands"
    Where does The Lady Is a Vamp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not at the top. Maybe middle-high range.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lady Is a Vamp?

    Possible Spoiler:









    I've read every book in the Argeneau series and have waited (still waiting) for Brickers story. The fact that he couldn't control Livy makes me wonder if she will be his life mate. Makes for a good book, what with all the awkwardness between Bricker, Paul and Jeanne Louise. Memorable indeed.


    Which character – as performed by Paula Christensen – was your favorite?

    Paula was great with all the characters.
    Other Argeneau female narrators were too . . . breathy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, except I'm never really sitting while I listen.
    Entertaining nonetheless.


    Any additional comments?

    Great addition to the Argeneau series.

    "Another good one from lynsay Sands"

    I just finished this book, and it is another great book from Lynsay Sands.
    It is definitely a good audiobook but if you didn't read the rest of the books in the series I would recommend that you start from the beginning.

    "Mind numbing boredom"
    What disappointed you about The Lady Is a Vamp?

    Lack of decent plot, weak characters and dreadful narration


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lynsay Sands again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Most of the characters have dreadful British or wheezing, "I am at death's door" accents. The child sounds like a mouse high on crack. The narration does not brighten the mood or experience.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Lady Is a Vamp?

    Half the book


    Any additional comments?

    This is the most disappointing and unsatisfying (and last) of all Lynsay Sand's novels I have read/heard. Her novels have progressively lost their zest. I keep buying them and hoping the original exhilaration will return but alas no, this one is the worst. The most interesting character is the dog. The intriguing, multifaceted characters of the previous novels appear as poor imitations, the main characters of this novel are dull and flat. The plot is unerring in its intention to drive the reader/listener to commit ritual suicide. The dreadful narration adds to the depression.

    "Very entertaining"

    The story was unique amongst the series, bringing in someone who knew about immortals but wasn't one. I enjoyed the narration very much. Miss Christensen had a lot of expression in both the story and the voices. I was a little confused how Carolyn ended up with an Italian accent when she was from Toronto:)

    "I really enjoyed listening/reading this book."
    What did you love best about The Lady Is a Vamp?

    the story line - it flowed smoothly and had just the right romance and suspense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ideal that its in human nature (or could be) to sacrifice all for the ones you love.


    Have you listened to any of Paula Christensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    n/a


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, cried, and got upset


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the the next release.

    "Just sit back an enjoy"

    If you are a Lynsay Sands fan than basically that is all that needs to be said about this book. The vamp family that keeps on giving us a humorous break from reality. The narration wasn't the best but it wasn't bad either. The argeneau clan jumps in where others fear to tread, This is a warm funny adventure for one of the youngest of the clan. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

    "The Lady Is a Vamp: Argeneau Vampires, Book 17"

    Jeanne Louise is in this book quite and unusal Argenaux. She is grabbed by a hunk of a man Paul, who is devoted to his daughter. Both Jeannie and Paul ride a roller coaster of emotions. Livy is Paul's terminally ill daughter. Whilst Paul wants Jeannie to turn Livy, and save her life, he falls head over heals for Jeannie and finds he wants to spend his life with her as well. They get there in the end, and Paul decides he wants to be Jeannies Life Mate, she will turn him, and Paul will turn Livy.... but noooo.... clumsey Bricker steps in and everything goes to rat poo in an instant. If the reader has followed Argeneax family and the individuals will find they are all there supporting Jeannie but to Pauls surprise supporting him, because Jeannie used her only turn and now faces seeing Paul remain mortal and her losing him. Just when you think that Jeannie is the unlucky one of the Argeneaux family, the plot takes a twist for the better. Nice read.

    Again for people with dyslexia issues, Aubilble is a godsend.
