Fabulous - But Also You Need To Read The First 2 Books Before This One!
Reviewed in the United States on November 6, 2020
For those of you that are new, or might have missed previous installments - this is part of a #PWF series - (#PWF - Paranormal Women's Fiction is not actually something I had heard of before this series. To be honest, anything with the words "Women's Fiction" in the description would normally have me running in the other direction, but this series is fab - so don’t let that dissuade you).
Followers of my reviews will know that I LOVE Kristen Painter books and this one was no different. This particular heroine definitely resonates with me well for a start because she's about my age, but she asks the questions I would be asking. She thinks a lot how I would think, says a lot of things that I would say - often out loud and not always at the most appropriate times, oh and she loves cake. Did I mention she loves cake? (Yes vampire - but yes STILL CAKE!)
If you haven't started this series yet this is not a jumping-in point. Unlike with some of Kristen's other works this is a series that needs to be read from the beginning, which really isn't a hardship. Book 1 has a lot of world-building info in it, which is not unusual for the start of a completely different series, but I have to say I can't believe HOW MUCH MORE ACTION Kristen packs in to books 2 and 3 .... especially 3.
Book 3 picks up literally where Book 2 ended - which I was pretty grateful for because you know - CLIFFHANGER! I love that you get the information along with Donna so you can try and figure it out. I say try .... because if anyone foresees not one, but TWO crazy jaw-dropping moments I might have to think you're not really telling the truth.
So if you like vampires, (and I mean really who doesn't), you are looking for a series rather than a standalone, and you want some really amazing storytelling. Pick this up! If you haven't started the series - you really should get on that! An easy 5 stars from me - but warning about a jaw-dropping last page - but inside sources (Kristen) assure me there will be a book 4! Until then you can commiserate with me lol. Also, these books come with a snack warning – which means I suggest you have snacks on hand before starting. A bit like me with the Great British Baking show!
