This book is just what I needed. After reading a series that was mostly devoid of humor and way too serious, I went searching for something lighthearted and cheesy and I found it. I belly-laughed until I peed my pants many times throughout this book. It’s hilarious!

Betsy was not having a good day. She woke up late for work. Her bus was late and then she sat on gum. When she got to work, she and all the other administrative personnel were laid off. When she got home, a freak snow storm hit. She went to go get her cat out of the middle of the road, was hit by a car and died.

Things just got worse after she died. She woke up in an ugly cheap pink suit and cheap shoes. She figured her step-mom was responsible for her awful wardrobe She figured she was probably a zombie or something awful like that so she tried to kill herself in many fun and amusing ways that didn’t work. Finally, she figured out that she was a vampire which was way better than a zombie in her book but not much.

Six months before her death, she was attacked by something resembling humans who bit her and then ran off. That is what probably made her turn into a vampire when she died.

Then she abducted by some lunatic vampire who wants her to kneel and become his subject and when he isn’t able to control her he seems perplexed. She is told that she is the foretold Vampire Queen which she thinks is just ludicrous but as she gets more and more into the vampire world, it gets harder and harder to deny.

I loved this book. I don’t know how to describe Betsy. She’s tall and blonde, an ex-model turned administrative assistant who loves expensive shoes. She isn’t dumb but she isn’t the brightest crayon in the box either. She seems to run into problem after problem and sometimes seems even a little vain but loveable at the same time.

I’ll have to make sure I keep my bladder emptied while I read the next book because if it is anything like this book, I am sure I will be laughing a lot.

What is vain,vapid and witless? Clue: she is a blond and her names starts with a "B"

No its not Barbie,its the heroine maincharacter in this book.

Wherever she goes she makes some some insightful observation about shoes.She was like "me,me,me" during the 100 something pages i endured to read before finally letting it hit the wall.

She gets attacked,why shes hardly fazed and instead muses on the hotness of the police detective who is investigating her case. Why that happens every day! Now let monologue a bit about how even I am an adult I call my stepmother,the stepmonster.

And then the vampires come into the picture. And of course they are "hawt" And they think the maincharacter is "hawt" too.

Give me a break. ( )

I did not expect to laugh this hard or to like this book. Reminds me of the great Jennifer Crusie but doesn't quite have the depth. Who cares? It's super fun if you like shoes and vampires and pure unadulterated silliness. ( )

What a funny book, this is a 4 9/10 star book at the least, the only reason I took a star away because I thought the sex scenes intruded on the storyline, not every scene but enough that I wished they were cut back on. The high point of the author's novel for me is her characters and their dialogue. ( )

Hampton & Son, realizing about a year too late that they had to slash costs, decided administrative layoffs were the way to go as opposed to, say, cutting the six figure salaries of senior management. The clerks and secretaries had been deemed expendable. But vengeance would be ours. Without us, those twits couldn't even send a fax, much less run the company. (chapter 1)
I love my cat. She's a pain in the ass, but she's dependable, and has never once told me to change my shirt because I look like a crack whore in periwinkle blue. Heck, the whole reason I was in this fix was, in part, because of Giselle, but I hadn't gotten rid of her, or even snacked on her. I was definitely a cat person.

Which is why it was unbelievably annoying that dogs now found me irresistible. Before I woke up in the funeral home, I had ignored dogs, and they had ignored me, and we'd gone about our separate business. No longer. (chapter 11)
