Her partner, Shane Brooks, is a vampire and her ex-fiance who lives in Isabel's attic. Shane was actually attacked and turned on the day they were supposed to be married. After Isabel and Shane survive being burned to death by an arsonist, they pick up the case of a missing woman who vanished into thin air leaving a family to wonder what really happened to her. If finding the missing woman wasn't enough, Isabel starts finding bodies piling up on her front porch. Who is leaving them there, and why?
There is a bit of a twisted romance in Chasing Daybreak which really didn't float my boat. But, whatever. The point is that Isabel who is funny, sarcastic, strong and responsible, may, or may not still have feelings for Shane. The same Shane who has a new girlfriend who is like a fungus that gets deep under your toenails and you need special medication to get rid of her. Then, if that weren't serious enough, Xavier Ambrose, Chancellor of the Vampire Council, believes that Isabel is interested in him enough to WOO her. Yes, I did say WOO. Moving on...
Should I talk about Isabel's strange family including her 3 younger sisters and her mother? Should I mention that Glass portrays the family as being ITALIAN even though the name STONE is English in origin? Shall I mention little sister Heather who knows things because she claims she's psychic? Shall we mention that even though the story is filled with vampires, and vampire hating humans, there might be a surprise tertiary character as well?

This book was awesome. Like a few have said, it does remind me of The Southern Vampire Series, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the book. The book starts off with a blaze . . . literally. I was a bit confused because I'm used to a calm, if not slightly boring, start with most books. But I quickly caught on and proceeded to devour this book, like I devour most books: in one sitting.
I gotta say, I didn't really like Shane or Xavier. Shane seemed to be a pitiful character. I just couldn't bring myself to like him. And as for Xavier, he just gave me a creepy old man vibe. You know the kind. And he just seems really shady to me. I guess I'll see in book 2.
Anyway, I did like the heroine because she was strong, responsible, and could take a stand on her own She's not a helpless damsel in distress and to be honest, that's what I look for in a book nowadays. I get the appeal of having the male lead saving the female, but the industry is so saturated with those kinds of books I'm at my wit's end. Not all women need men to fight their battles. And, uh, I'm just going to go back to what I was saying before I started this mini-rant.
Isabel's mom was . . . something. And as for Heather, I can understand Isabel's frustrations towards her. I don't know how I feel about Mercy. I tried giving her the benefit of the doubt, but I don't have a concrete opinion.
This was a great read, and I was almost right in my predictions of whodunit. The ending was certainly a twist and not something I was expecting, for which I applaud the author. But the ending did feel a little rushed to me (it's either that or I read too quickly).
Overall, Chasing Daybreak gets 4/5 Platypires.
I really enjoyed that the Vampire elements were pretty consistent with the lore I know, and I liked that it felt pretty grounded instead of kinda too unrealistic. Isabelle is an epic heroine, and I wanted to know her in real life. Her story in this book was gripping but also has some good humor and feels. She's really one of the best MCs I've read recently.
This author knows how to grab a reader becaus I'm in for the next book for sure! Loved it!

This was a good read, although it did feel a little familiar in places. Despite that, I enjoyed the story. It is not too heavy and has some great writing about your typical oddball family in there. I loved the fact that even the vamps kept some of their more ‘human’ personality, like Shane, he is funny and serious and annoying all at the same time, just like a regular, typical guy ;) . I loved her sister, a whirlwind of energy and ‘weirdness’ with a touch of loving family life. Definately worth a read.
It's not terrible - I managed to get all the way to the end. But there were a few roll the eye moments (the ancient vampire's sudden infatuation, the out-of-left-field resolution to the mystery deaths) and this is skirting perilously close to Mary Sue territory.
It's readable if there's nothing else in the house to read, but you could do so much better.
