Condition Used - good condition

My thoughts
Prepare yourself to be totally taken in by Betsey, the shoe-loving average girl who suddenly finds herself dead and made-over to become Betsey, Queen of Vampires. Get ready to be entertained as she comes to terms with the fact that she is now dead (or rather 'undead') and also made Queen. This is first in Mary Janice Davidson's Betsey series.

For those of you who don't know MJD, she is by far, one of my favourite authors - quick-witted, sharp-tongued and very very entertaining. I secretly think Betsey is emulated after her. :)

Betsy Taylor--former model, newly unemployed secretary, 30, and still single--wakes up after being flattened by a small SUV in a tacky coffin wearing cheap knock-off shoes. Her mother is glad she is back, albeit as a vampire, but her stepmother is enraged that Betsy has reclaimed her designer-shoe collection. With a wealthy best friend and a newly acquired doctor pal who is not susceptible to her formidable allure, she sets out to right wrongs but is abducted by Nostro, a tacky 500-year-old vampire who rules the undead roost. It seems that Betsy is an anomaly: a vampire who doesn't burn in sunlight, can fight the urge to feed, and is not repulsed by religious articles, all of which may make her the prophesied Queen of the Vampires. Teaming up with gorgeous vampire Eric Sinclair, who is in her opinion a major pervert, she takes on Nostro and his minions. Sexy, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny, Davidson's chick-lit foray into the paranormal is delightful.
