co-ed Gigi is headed home to Half-Moon Hollow for her first Christmas
since her sister, Iris, was turned into a vampire by her beloved undead
husband, Cal. Iris is working overtime to make this holiday as normal
and special as possible. After all, it’s taken her months of working
with Jane Jameson and the Hollow’s vampires to convince herself that she
won’t bite her baby sister on sight.
Gigi has her own worries.
She’s falling out of love with her high school sweetheart, Ben, and has
no idea how to tell him. She’s got a secret job interview with
terrifying teen Council official, Ophelia Lambert. And there’s a
handsome but cagey vampire following her around town and then
disappearing before Gigi can confirm that he’s not, in fact, a figment
of her fertile imagination. Holidays with family are complicated.
Christmas with an undead family can be downright dangerous.
This was a really fun read for the holidays, when you're busy and you don't have a whole lot of time or brainpower. It was really short, and I did feel like it ended rather abruptly. I realize it's a short story, and part of a larger series, but I really thought that we would at least find out who the mystery vampire was. Granted, I haven't read any of the other books in this series, so maybe it made more sense to those who had. I have read the Jane Jameson series, though. So this world wasn't entirely new to me.
I enjoy reading this author's books, and they always make me laugh, or at least smile.
