This is your basic romantic suspense thriller novel. I was interested in the idea of vampires and their popularity in society nowadays. When a book references Buffy the Vampire Slayer three different times, it will have my ...more

Some reviews said Kristi was too stupid to live. I don't know about that, but she was certainly too uninteresting to read. Actually, the only interesting and believable character was Houdini the cat. The serial killer was so annoying. You could make a drinking game for how ...more

Not a bad read, and the writing was good and is following the rest of the series based in the New Orleans area.
