In the days leading up to The Big Day, Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor seems to have a full house – and the wedding guests have yet to arrive. Along with her human buddies, there’s a ghost, a werewolf, and a Fiend crashing at her place. And though her fiancé, Vampire King Eric Sinclair, conveniently disappears when the conversation turns to seating charts and flower arrangements, he does manage to make his oh-so-sexy presence known at other moments.
Betsy knows the next few weeks won’t be smooth sailing – but she never expects just what’s in store for her. Cold feet are no surprise, especially with an undead groom. But when Sinclair truly goes missing – and not just to avoid wedding preparations – along with most of her friends and loved ones, Betsy is frantic. Alone and afraid for the fate of everyone she loves. Betsy can’t trust anyone as she tries to find them and whoever is behind all the disappearance. And what happens next will shake the foundation of the vampire wold forever in the best-selling series that "breath[es] new life into conventional vampire lore."
I first discovered MaryJanice Davidson’s Vampire Betsy series through an anthology and I actually didn’t like it at all (it was told by a minor character and made Betsy look shallow and boring, which she isn’t)! Then about two years later I picked up the first book in the series called Undead and Unwed and I just loved how funny, cute, and interesting the book was. It was a lot of fun to catch up with the Queen of the Vampires in her latest book, Undead and Uneasy.
The entire Betsy series are very fast reads (I finished Uneasy in a couple of hours) but they’re still incredible and very well written. Mrs. Davidson is another one of those fabulous authors who mixes genres in their stories by throwing in some romance and mystery on top of the paranormal. I’m sorry to say I was able to figure out the "mystery" aspect way before poor Betsy did but I was still surprised by the really cool ending. I’m looking forward to the next Betsy book so much. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
