More About the Author

Susanne Saville enjoys caffeine - especially in coffee and tea, traveling, horseback riding, reading, and John Barrowman. Not necessarily in that order.

She has a Master's Degree in History and a second Master's Degree in Library Science. The casual observer might suppose that this primarily qualifies her to dispense fries at fast-food restaurants. Ah, but no! Ms. Saville has worked as a Reference Librarian in California and as a History Instructor at Georgia Military College. She has also been interviewed by Dog Fancy as an expert on the pug dog's place in history.

She currently resides in New England and, along with writing, delights in researching, spending quality time with her cats, and eating fries at fast-food restaurants.

This author has a sparkling, witty voice which I love. I did find the Irish brogue accents distracting as did some others, but it appears difficult for the author to contain her intelligence, as we all know must be done to be successful. It is only a matter of time before she hits on the right mix. I have read most of her books and I wish she would write more.

Format: Paperback
Fiona MacPhee and her demon slaying partner, Joan Armstrong, are on an important mission to prevent the world's end at the hands of an ancient and powerful vampire named Miklos. Fiona and Joan reluctantly accept the assistance of roguish vampire Rory MacLaren in their quest. Rory, smitten with Fiona, offers her the chance to be at his side for eternity. The more time Fiona spends with Rory, the less she is able to ignore her desire for him. But before she gives in to Rory, she must come to terms with who she really is and decide if he can accept the truth she has been keeping from her own best friend.

"Vampire Close" would have been a much better novel had it gone through several more edits and drafts before going to print. Given that this is a self-published novel, Ms. Saville's work did not get the editing attention it required. Several instances of poor editing caught my eye as I read the novel, from incorrect and over usage of ellipses (throughout the novel), using "complimented" instead of "complemented" (p. 9), and spacing issues (p. 10, 82, 138, 225, and 255).

Additionally, the character of Rory MacLaren, who is supposed to be charming and roguish, came across as overbearing and rather annoying. I kept finding myself wishing that demon slayer Joan Armstrong would finish the deed, or move over and let Buffy the Vampire Slayer take care of business.

One of the best parts of any paranormal romance novels are the action scenes. The first action scene (p. 130) with Joan Armstrong lasted only about two paragraphs. There was not enough description or creativity put into this scene to satisfy me; I actually had to go back and read it again, thinking I had missed something important.

Format: Paperback
I really hate to give negative reviews, but I'm sorry, this book needed a lot of work before it was published. Descriptions were over-the-top, the characters weren't fleshed out, and overall, the story should have been more filled out.

When I started this book, I felt like I missed the first fifteen minutes of a movie and I'm right in the middle of a scene, a bit lost; it was quite discombobulating. The main love interests, Fiona and Rory, are both Scottish and that's how it's written, so there's dinna, och, cannae, ken, etc., which really distracted from the story. Maybe if only one character spoke like that, it might have been bearable, but with two of them, it was just too much. Fiona herself was unlikeable, prejudiced, oblivious to her "sexpot" looks, and way to innocent to be believable for her age, while Rory's forceful, generally undesirable, and doesn't even seem like a vampire other than his fangs. What's really missing from the book is emotion. I felt nothing, other than mild dislike, for anyone or anything -- I just didn't care about these people. Joan, an American demon hunter and Euan, a Highland-born Brit (or "Sassenach" as Fiona disdainfully calls him) deacon, were slightly better at first, but there still was not enough shown for me to have a personal interest in them. The plot was vaguely described, and frankly, not very interesting. Nothing was shown, it was just told, mainly through an abundance of gabbing, so I never got the sense of urgency and the book just meandered into its finale.

I had a few other problems, but nothing that wouldn't give certain events away. Maybe die-hard paranormal romance fans will like this, but it became a chore to complete and I ended up disliking it the more I read, so it just wasn't for me.
