Cold in California

The Twice-Baked Vampire Series, #1

This was a very good book.

Gabriel was a really interesting character. He was strong, brave, caring and handsome. He also knew a lot of interesting history.

Dori Gallagher was smart and brave. I enjoyed her.

The plot was intriguing and pulled me in. The supernatural creatures were interesting too. The enemy was evil and a good foe. I enjoyed how Gabriel and Dori got to know each other and eventually fell from lust and into love. The chemistry was there and the romantic scenes were well done.

I liked the humor the author put into this story. This book did not drag at all. There was good bits of uniqueness, action, and romance. Everything was written how I like it. You get wonderful characters and twists too.
