Review

"Four Stars" - The Paranormal Romance Guild

"I think any vampire story lover should go right over to Amazon and buy this book right now.  This story had me hooked from page one until the very end and I can't wait to find out what happens with Maxie next.  Will I read more by this author?  You betcha, trust me I have the next book already queued up on my list and waiting to be bought!"
Stitch - Read - Cook


"One thing I really enjoyed about the book is that the author has crafted a very rich history for the vampire families. The way she's brought these people through the centuries seems not only plausible, but likely."
ePublish A Book"


"The story line was great...enjoyed Maxie's character and Jean-Louis is a great partner for her.  I will keep my eyes open for SNAP: New Talent in 2012."

About the Author

I was born in Santa Cruz, California to a family that migrated west to San Francisco in 1849. Unfortunately, they never found gold, nor did they buy (and hang onto) any California land. My mother named me Michael, after author and actress Blanche Oelrichs, who wrote under the name of Michael Strange. After months of saying, "Yes, she's a girl. Yes, her name is Michael," my mother finally caved and I became "Michele." I was read to as a child, and needed always to have a book with me. My maternal grandmother belonged to a writing club in San Francisco in the early part of the 20th century and wrote poems and jingles--one of which won her a travel trailer during the Depression. I've lived in San Francisco, the Bay Area, the Central Valley, the Sierra, Southern California and the North Coast. My first career was in journalism, and I spent seven years as a staff writer with the San Jose Mercury News. After returning to Humboldt State University to complete school and work on a master's, I fell into my second career, as a non-profit administrator.I spent time as a reporter and editor for daily papers in California. I was the city, metro and executive editor for daily newspapers in California's Central Valley and managed non-profit agencies, including a legal organization serving roughly 10,000 senior citizens in Alameda County. I'm a member of the Society of California Pioneers and Sisters in Crime and live in California's Central Valley with a cat, skunks, wild turkeys and an opossum (only the cat gets to come in the house).

When Maxie Gwenoch, a respected editor who tracks `jet set celebrities', accepts a position as managing editor of SNAP, she find herself drawn into an unfamiliar arena filled with fame, fortune, vampires and a centuries old feud. Swept off her feet by the debonair Jean-Louis, who works in dim lighting with shades drawn and travels under the cover of night, will the editor succumb to his beguiling mysterious charms?

Through the use of vivid word imagery, the reader follows the heroine step by step as she journeys between a world she knows and one she finds unfamiliar yet intriguing. You are there every step of the way, experiencing the sights, sounds and sensations throughout SNAP's pages.

The author plays fair with her audience. A generous sprinkling of clues in the form of steak tartre, Russian Red lipstick, a Hungarian castle where the luxuries of old-world society are commonplace and unconventional happenings set the scene for a decision that will affect a woman's life ever after.

Will Maxie trade her familiar life of stability to follow her heart for a chance at everlasting love that only lies in the darkness of the unknown?

When I was asked to review SNAP I wasn't sure I could contribute a relevant opinion since I'm not a sci fi/paranormall/vampire fan, but after the first 25 pages, I was hooked. Ms. Drier has truly created a world that unfolds. The characters are not cardboard stereotypes they are real people who happen to drink blood. I turned the last page, looking for the story to continue.

Well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I don't often read vampire novels, but this one drew me right in. Despite it's paranormal premise - vampires secretly running a large media corporation - this novel was very realistic, a unique blend of contemporary fiction, romance, suspense and the paranormal. It's obvious the author has inner knowledge of the media, as Snap sounds like it could be a real celebrity magazine and television empire and it all rang true. All of the background of how these vampires came to be in charge of a media company was woven in so deftly that it actually sounded believable. Most importantly, Maxie is a likable and strong female character. She is a "regular" and not a vampire, so readers can easily relate to her shock about what's happening behind the scenes at her new employer. She soon learns that her life is in danger, not from her new vampire friends, but from their rivals. Her struggle is a captivating one - her life is in upheaval and she has become a target, yet how can Maxie give up this experience of finally finding a place she belongs? Whether you usually read paranormal novels or not, this is a great read that truly has something for every taste.

In SNAP: The World Unfolds, the author has created a fascinating world in which humans, vampires, and other paranormal characters command a global media empire that reports on the lives of celebrities. The book is full of beautiful people, both human and vampire, and the story is compelling. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series too.

**3.5 Stars**

1st line in the book--> "It was blood."

In SNAP: The World Unfolds , Michelle Drier combines the world of High fashion and Hollywood with the paranormal world. Think Vampires Wears Prada ;). It was interesting to see how the author combined these two worlds.

Maxmillia Gwenoch, aka Maxie, is the new managing editor of SNAP. She has been in the magazine business for years and has finally landed her dream job. SNAP is the name of a conglomeration of print magazine (with editions in five languages), blog, and television publications dedicated to celebrities. Maxie knows she has finally reached the top, and loves the perks that come with it. Beautiful people surround her but she always keeps in mind the advice that her Mother gave her... to never get involved with someone prettier the she.

Enter Jean-Louis, the art director. He's frightfully handsome, and interested in Maxie. From the moment the moment they first meet they click. Both professionally and personally. As she considers to follow her feelings and get closer to Jean-Louis, there are strange thing that keep occurring at SNAP since Maxie first arrived. Later learning of a vampire family feud that she not only a part of but a target.

The storyline was great. I really enjoyed Maxie's character and Jean-Louis is a great partner for her. The novel doesn't pick until almost half-way through the book. Fashonista lovers will love the beginning as there is lots of detail of regarding the inter-workings of Maxies's job and the places she visits. I do think the only flaw with Maxie's character is that she didn't question or become doubtful when she realized vampires existed. I guess having a sexy vampire tell you is hard to deny ;)

Overall I did like this book.

I got 60% of the way into this 'novel' according to my e-reader. The story started off reasonably well with Maxi as a sought after managing editor of a 'People' type entertainment reporting empire. It rapidly devolves into a clunky, cumbersome story about rival vampire families who are fighting over her because of her business acumen. I think.

Mix in her attraction to Jean-Louis who is simultaneously her employee and her boss (Yeah, yeah, I know...it barely made sense to me too) and you have the beginnings of a 'who cares' relationship.

Shoddy editing and an inch deep plot left me cold. This is the first offering in a series? No thanks.
