First off I have to say that the cover of this book is absolutely stunning. And guess what? So is the book!

From reading the blurb, I thought to myself “oh geez, not another vampire love story”. Surprise, surprise! It is another vampire story, but not just any vampire story. It’s a unique tale with a different set of vampires which breaks away from the norm and takes the reader into a wonderful new world with an unusual culture and set of rules, unlike any other vampire novel I’ve read in the pas

I was contacted by Tribute Books to participate in a Blog Tour for "Yesterday's Daughter". I definitely couldn't pass it up. I'm always up for reading a book from a new author who I have never read from.
From the minute I picked up the book, I knew it was not like any other book I've read before. Sallie Lundy-Frommer takes you into a Paranormal World where Vampires are destined to have "Life Mates". They also feed from each other to sustain the best nutrients...not from humans. ***Spoiler Alert*

A really amazing vampire romance. It has a little of everything in it action, comedy, romance, betrayel, friendship,and a family feud as well :D Hehe I really need to figure out where all these, hot, strong, vampire men hide out at. I don't blame the girl for falling for him instantly, he's so sweet, hot, and I think I may need to stop this review now, lol. Taking from her family at a young age and left in the care of humans, losing all of her memories of her childhood does not help her neither. ...more

Yesterday’s Daughter by Sallie Lundy-Frommer is a fabulous paranormal romance novel; I have to say that this book was a real surprise. She created a world where I as reader would love to be a part of.

Grace Stone is a young woman who was found as a small girl with no memories of her family, so she grew up in foster homes. She discovered at an early age that she was different from other girl’s her age, so at age seventeen she got out on her own and made her own living and put herself to college. S

Sallie Lundy-Frommer builds mystery from page one. She paints a realistic portrait of a less ordinary life. Yesterday's Daughter uses well placed inner voice to convey a heart felt story. This love story wrapped in a romance for romance lovers. It is well written for it's audience and has a particular allure in that genre. It is truly well suited for anyone that has a longing in their hearts for something a little different.

Review of Yesterday’s Daughter by Sallie Lundy-Frommer
4 Stars

Not quite sure what to expect of this novel, I found myself pleasantly surprised. The author takes a somewhat different view of vampires, and sets them (and their hunters) in a contemporary society which could easily pass for our own reality. What is unusual and different in this case is that these particular vampires are a species, sometimes solitary, sometimes living among humankind; have a religion (monotheistic at that), have a pri

Can I say WOW and I am so in love with Malachi, I fell in love with these characters Grace/Sapphira and her relationship with him transfers you into a whole other world of Vampirism. She has survived abuse from the Foster care she lived in, bettered herself and had a very satisfying life until Malachi enters her world she thought it was enough. The love that these two find in each other is mesmerizing. there is some romance, family feuds,actions and lots of awesome reading.There are good guys ba ...more

This novel has an interesting concept of vampires living alongside of humans while having a complete and separate society. Malachi’s world is a bit complicated and difficult for the reader to understand and the descriptions take away from the story a little at times, but overall, the story is very enjoyable and interesting. I really liked Grace most of all. She is a strong and independent woman who overcomes much in her life and is determined to find happiness.

Immediately I am curious about Grace, who believes and acts as if she is a vampire. But, if it wasn’t for this strange fact becoming known right at the beginning, I am not sure if I would feel engaged in the story. I know that the beginning is the time to lay the foundation, but there is a lot of showing and not telling . I was slow to catch the rhythm of the voice of the writer. For me, at first, I was turned off by the amount of words it took to say something. But do not for one second be mis ...more

My review of Yesterday's Daughter by Sallie Lundy-Frommer

rating 5*****

This book was provided free from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

Grace can't tolerate the sun. Even the slightest exposure leaves her with first degree burns on her skin. Next, her diet is way abnormal -- she prefers bagged blood to human food. Lastly, she lives in isolation in fear that if any of her secrets are ever found out she will be locked away in a mental asylum forever.

First off, I would like to say that I love the cover! It completely captures Grace's image as described in the book! I have read a lot of vampire romance novels, but I can honestly say that this is one of the best ones I've read this year!

Grace Stone is a loner by choice. She is a very caring person, but she holds herself aloof from her colleagues at work. I felt she had an air of vulnerability about her, but as I read further, I found she had a steel core. She has a very strong ch

Yesterdays Daughter is a vampire story with a difference. We don’t have the all knowing confident mind reading male with sparkles or ‘shit kickers’, instead we have the unsure timid female who isolates herself and doesn’t know what she is. This all changes on the day she meets her soul mate Malachi. He has been looking for her for years even though everyone believed she was dead and thought he should give up his search. Malachi now has to teach Grace all about her destiny and about the dangers o

I truly enjoyed reading Yesterday's Daughter, there was action, comedy, suspense, and of course love. There were good guys and bad guys. Though the title did throw me off a bit on what the book was about I have nothing negative to say about it.

I have read a lot of vampire stories lately, and although they are all different in their own ways and I have enjoyed most of them immensely there is just something about Yesterday's Daughter that makes me want to re-read it immediately.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a little confusing in the very beginning, when it would go to another character's point of view/story, since there was no indication (symbol) that it was changing. I did have to re-read a few paragraphs's in the beginning but once you get into the book and the author's writing style, you don't notice it as much.

The world that Sallie creates in this story was one that I really wish that I could be a part of. She created a Vampire, that was unlike any I have eve

To becoming a teenager who strikes out on her own away from the abuse to become a young woman so full of questions about her past. As Malachi finds his lifemate and loses her to a perver ...more

Normally, this genre is NOT my schtick but I read it because I briefly knew the woman who wrote it. Sadly, though the plot was strong and the characters well developed, there was, evidently, no professional editor employed before publication. As a result, there are numerous punctuation errors throughout, at least one on every page. I found it very disturbing and frustrating, so I finally had to quit reading. Please let me know next time, Sallie, and this professional writer/editor will be happy ...more

So if your a big fan of vampire books; you will love this book as I did. This book has romance, mystery, and action what more can you want in a book right? I love the main characters Malachi and Sapphira. But what made me love this book was how the Sapphira became a very strong character. When you start reading it you won't want to ...more

Grace stared at the large stranger who filled her small apartment with his mammoth presence and suddenly felt very warm. She shook her head from side to side trying to dislodge the chaos that his words brought about. She couldn’t have heard him correctly. Had he said that he knew her parents? She didn’t have any parents. She was an orphan; that was the only thing she kne

I really and truly wanted to love this book. When I read the synopsis of Yesterday’s Daughter I was instantly intrigued, however I have to be honest in saying that, for me, the story fell short of my expectations.

The review of "YESTERDAY'S DAUGHTER" by SALLIE LUNDY-FROMMER. The characters in the beginning of the book appear at random and can cause confusion in the reader, thus may leading the reader to re-read previous paragraphs. In addition, there were no smooth transition between scene changes, as evidenced by the author talking about Grace working in the morgue and the next paragraph speaking about Malachi meeting in the crater with the other Guardians.
