A perfect quick read when you need a break from reality! The Shopgirl and the Vampire by Ciar Cullen is one of those fun reads that has romance, a sweet heroine who is working hard to survive in a world that keeps throwing obstacles in her way and of course, the vampire, a dashing man, definitely swoon-worthy and memorable.

Ciar Cullen writes with a flourish that sent me back to the turn of the century, from her carefully described backgrounds to her character dialogue, so proper and “of the era.

I really liked this short—and it was short, it is part of Borough's Publishing Group's Lunchbox Romance line. A wonderful line of books for those who are looking for a good read but have little time.

In The Shopgirl and the Vampire we meet Kitty, a young woman working in a jewelry store for a rude older man, her bother, Patrick, has just died and she has not even had a day to mourn as she must go to work to be able to afford rent.

As she rushes to work, distracted and hurried as she is, she bumps

I enjoyed most of this story. I think it was a very interesting tale and loved that it was set in the 19th century. The main characters, Kitty and Phillip, were done very well and I think fit great together. The pacing through out the whole story was great until the very end. At the end the pace picked up a great deal and felt too rushed. The ending was also too tidy and clean for me. I wish things would have ended a little messier, especially with George's character. Overall, though, it was a ...more

Though the events in this story come before it, I read this book after reading "Lillian Holmes and the Leaping Man" and I'm quite glad I did or I may not have read anything else by the author. This story is ok, but it does not really get into the literary or steam-punk elements that I enjoy in LHatLM. It is just sort of a cute vampire love story. But, with this and LHatLM, the author sets up what should be a fun series that crosses the literary / steam-punk / vampire genres, this is possibly a ...more

This is a great historical story about a talented woman who finds herself in unfortunate circumstances and a benefactor who unwittingly allows her to realize her ultimate dream, and find love, slightly unusual love, but love nonetheless, along the way.

I really enjoyed this short story. It was a quick read and Ms. Cullen sure does know how to tell a story.

This book was cute, but a very quick read! No real depth to the characters, but I guess that is what you get with a book that is only 6 chapters long.
