Betsy is back for another adventure. She has a wedding coming up that needs a lot of planning as well as setting a firm date. It needs to be something suitable for humans as well as vampires. Being the Queen of the Vampires she is able to see ghosts and she is plagued by the ghost of a woman who was murdered a local serial killer. They all fit a similar profile to Betsy and the ghost wants her to lead the police or dispose of her murderer before he kills more women.
Betsy gets help from here sister. Trouble is she is exhibiting some disturbing behaviour and as her mother is the Devil Betsy is understandably worried. George the Fiend ends up getting stuck in the drama as Besty tries to gain more favour from the vampire community, keep an eye on her sister and solve a murder.
These books are just so much fun. Very light and easy to read. One quote that stuck in my mind and sums up the two main characters Betsy and Sinclair quite well is :
"You don't even have to pick the flowers you like, okay? Just pick the ones you absolutely loathe, can't stand the site of, and I'll be syre those aren't anywhere near you on the big day."
"Darling", he said, turning the page, "I just don't have intensely strong feelings for flowers."
"But you were raised on a farm! You must have some preferences."
"Darling, I have a penis. Ergo I have no preferences."
