Synopsis for The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

Patrica Campbell’s life has never felt smaller. Her husband is a workaholic, her teenagers kids have their own lives, her senile mother-in-law needs constant care, and she’s always a step behind on her endless to-do list. The only thing keep her sane is her book club, a close-knit group of Charleston women untied by their love of true crime. At these meetings they’re as likely to talk about the Manson family as they are about their own families.

One evening after book club, Patricia is viciously attacked by an elderly neighbor, bringing the neighbor’s handsome nephew, James Harris into her life. James is well traveled and well read, and he makes Patricia feel things she hasn’t felt in years. But when children on the other side of town go missing, their deaths written off by local police, Patricia has reason to believe James Harris is more of a Bundy than a Brad Pitt. The real problem? James is a monster of a different kind – and Patricia has already invited him in.

Little by little, James will insinuate himself into Patricia’s life and try to take everything she took for granted – including the book club – but she won’t surrender without a fight in this blood-soaked tale of neighborly kindness gone wrong.

My Review for The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

A coworker of mine is a part of a book club. We were working, and she got a text from one of the member’s with this title. She excitedly told me about it because she knew I love to read. I was in a slump and thought this book would get me back in the mood to read. She was right. I could not put it down. I would read it on my breaks, my lunches, before and after work, and when I was in bed. I was cracking up, and at the same time, I was thinking of Fright Night, and mixed the teenagers with housewives. I absolutely loved it!

Synopsis for Hybrid

Who am I? Everyone has their opinion of who I am.

The Queen thinks I’m her favorite pet. Lachlaan Mortas thinks I’m his biggest mistake. The Queen’s men think I’m their brother. The Carpe Noctem thinks I’m a useful tool.

Who do I think I am? Cast aside. Unwanted. Freak. Cursed. Full of sins.

But there are some things about me that I am certain of . . .

I am in love with Octavia, the Queen of Drishane. And my bastard father does not know what kind of vengeance I am about to bring down on him for the pain he has caused Octavia. He has no idea exactly what he allowed to live or what I am capable of.

But I do. Because I know who I am. I am unique . . . I am Hybrid.

Review

I don’t even know what to say. I read both of these books in 2 days. I could not put them down. They were intriguing. The Queen was erotic, dramatic, and suspenseful, with a cliffhanger . . .

Hybrid was more suspenseful and dramatic than The Queen. I loved it more than the first book, I fell in love her boys. I want more. I want to know more about her boys. Like I said, I could not put them down. I was sad when it ended, but I hope there are more, because it definitely left a cliff hanger.
