Undead and Unwed by Mary Janice Davidson

Pages: 392
Published: 2004

Ever wondered what would happen if a thirsty vamp bit Sophie Kinsella's Becky Bloomwood on the neck and crowned her Queen of the Undead? No? Neither had I till I began reading Undead and Unwed by Mary Janice Davidson but I can now tell you the result is a hilarious mix of sex, shoes, comedy and blood-sucking!

This book takes everything you love about a good chick-lit novel:

- a smart-mouthed heroine with impeccable fashion sense

- a light-hearted and cheeky plot line

- a smouldering sexy love interest

And infuses it with a healthy dose of vampiric action!

Even though the main character's materialistic tendencies make her a little tough to love, blood-sucking Betsy is still entertaining as all hell and an absolute scream to read (hardy harr harr). Some of the things she said and did had me clutching my side with laughter.

I listened to rather than read this book and I have to say that it translated perfectly to audio. Listening to the voice actor speak with a lisp when Betsy's fangs came out was a particularly memorable moment that tickled my funny bone. I thoroughly recommend giving the audio version of this book a go! It's how I'll be listening to the rest of the series.

This isn't the kind of book you'll remember forever but it is certainly wonderful escapism. A great beach or weekend read! I will be definitely going on to read the rest of the series. Lucky they're small because I have some catching up to do!

I read this one a while ago, but it was hilarious! I love Queen Betsy and all the antics she gets into. And Eric Sinclair is too hot to handle...especially in a swimming pool...

I just read the first two books in this series and fell in love with Betsy! I have to say though that the second book is even better, as the author seems to have improved her sex scenes.
