My thoughts:
I am a Sherry Ficklin fan. I have read and reviewed two other books by her, Foresight and Secondsight. Because I already love the Gods of Fate series, I opened this book with an expectation that I don't experience when reading a new author. The expectation was great characters set in a well developed world bringing me a story that I wouldn't want to put down!
I was thrilled to once again find THAT story!
The characters are great! Sophie is fabulous. She is all about duty, family, sa

Palmetto Moon: Born of Blood

Sophie D'Angelo runs a detective agency left to her by her father, her partner Eric is the man who left her standing at the altar a year ago although his reason for doing so, that he was turned in a vampire, are sound! Sophie is hired to look into the disappearance of a local mother of 4 when the police draw a blank. This leads Sophie to get more involved with the local vampire hierarchy than she would like and along the way she bumps into a couple of werewolves and s
Sophie is the somewhat unwilling owner of Palmetto Private Investigations, having taken over the business after her father’s death. It’s not that she doesn’t like her job, in fact she seems to thrive in it, but she was forced to give up college to run the business and keep her family afloat. Her business partner, Caleb, is a vampire who lives in her attic. He’s also her ex-fiance, who left her standing alone at the alter after he was changed into a vampire the night before their wedding. Oh, and ...more
Summary: Sophie D’Angelo has faced a few major changes in the last year. First, her fiance Caleb was turned into a vampire the night before they were supposed to get married. Sophie has supported Caleb personally and professionally since he was changed, but their romantic relationship has been reduced to strictly a friendship.

Secondly, Sophie’s father passed away, leaving her with the responsibility of running his PI business and supporting her family. Sophie seems to have transitioned into her

I LOVE Sophie! She is so brilliantly snarky. This book was hard to put down.

Born of Blood, by Sherry D. Ficklin isn’t just your average vampire book. Ficklin manages to write a love story, action, and plenty of sarcasm in this first edition of the Palmetto Moon series.

Sophie D’Angelo is a private investigator who is living with a vampire in her attic who happens to be her ex-fiancé. In this reality vampires live in the open among the undead. Caleb, her ex-fiancé, was turned into a vampire the night before their wedding and he’s been living as her friend in her attic eve
It did not live up to my expectations, but it wasn't all bad.

Rather short story, could have been the intro to something huge.
Really loved this book! I cried for Sophie and Caleb. I have already bought book two!

YA Author Sherry D. Ficklin writes adult novels under the pen name Diana Collins. Why a pen name? Well, there was some confusion with people picking up her adult novels thinking they were one of her YA novels. They are not. While her adult novels are not smutty or overly adult in content, they are targeted to the 18+ readers. So the pen name is both a nod to her Collins relatives and an attempt t ...more
