#26 -- Undead and Unpopular by MaryJanice Davidson
From the Publisher
This New York Times bestselling author’s Undead series is more popular than ever!
With her birthday coming up, Betsy isn’t in the best frame of mind to face the powerful European vampires who have finally come to pay their respects. Playing politics is not her strong suit, especially when she finds out her best friend Jessica may have a life-threatening illness. Sure Betsy can save her life by taking it-isn’t that what friends are for?-but the choice isn’t in her hands.
With her fiancé Eric dodging all the wedding plans, Betsy’s plate is full-and not with birthday cake. But who has time to pout? Not even a reluctant vampire queen, who is taking it one high-heeled step at a time in MaryJanice Davidson’s creative, sophisticated, sexy, and wonderfully witty series.
While I enjoy the Undead series and I read it when I am in the mood for a little mindless fun reading, I have to say that I found this book a bit rambling. There really was no storyline or plot, no real beginning or end, just a middle. If at all possible Betsy was even more shallow in this book than normal and things happened that seemed to have absolutely no bearing on this or any other storyline. I mean it was okay for a quick afternoon read, but I am really hoping for more in her next installment of this series.
