really liked it
bookshelves: vampire

I actually liked this a bit better than Happy Hour at Casa Dracula, the first in this series. Not sure why, since most of it takes place away from the ranch. But it got more into vampire culture, and less in the "we've got a genetic condition" area. Milagro continues to be treated like an outsider among her semi-adopted family, even her boyfriend Oswald. She is hungry for information on the "vampires," their origin and the hidden secrets of their culture. This leads her to be easily deceived by the unscrupulous among them. She finds herself at a desert spa, where she thinks she's hiding, but it's really all part of the plot. She meets more neat people, and learns more than she ever wanted to know. If this author keeps writing, I'll keep reading. Not great literature, but a good read on a quiet weekend afternoon.
