Sophronia and the Vampire

English crone Sophronia is taking a tour of America. She has to spend the night at a motel on the California coast. Saying the motel is less than perfect would be an understatement. Sophronia will be happy as long as it has clean sheets and the toilet flushes. Her tour of America is about to get exciting and not in the way she was expecting, or would want for that matter. The owner of the motel is a young witch and has no clue what she is. The young witch needs guidance and she will need more than that when vampires show up.

Jacqueline Farrell gives us a charming story in Sophronia and the Vampire. The characters help weave a tale of suspense peppered with a touch of comedy here and there. Farrell helps bring you into the story with her enthralling descriptions of characters and scenes. The characters are well-rounded and fit together in a quirky, yet captivating way. It was a fun book to read and I will definitely be adding this to my favorite books list. I would suggest Sophronia and the Vampire to anyone that likes paranormal books.
