I've always liked vampire books, so when I got the opportunity to review this book for Waterbrook/Multnomah, I jumped at the chance to see how a Christian author would handle this subject.

In THIRSTY, Nina Parker is a woman at a crossroads. As a teenager, she underwent a terrifying event that haunted her ever since, though she doesn't clearly remember it. Now an alcoholic, she has lost the custody and the love of her daughter, Meagan, and her ex-husband wants no part of her. But when she is forced to move back to her hometown and move in with her sister, Nina seizes a chance to take her daughter along during her spring break. Meagan is interested in getting to know the parents Nina has given up on there, though she makes every moment difficult for her mother. A series of murders and animal killings leaving bloodless bodies and carcases alarm her, her sheriff sister, and the town. A mysterious neighbor seems way too interested in her. Is he a good man or does he represent danger? Can she stay away from the bottle which is calling her back to alcohol addiction, or can she trust those who love her? Should she be worried about the alluring woman who has her daughter and several other teenage girls enthralled with her yoga classes and unusual influence? Is there truly no recapturing the love her husband once had for her? Author Tracey Bateman brings this ale of obsession and redemption to a dramatic, unforgettable conclusion.
