Katrina Parker returned to Houston from Las Vegas an amnesiac widow who can remember neither her wedding, nor her husband’s death, and possessing a startling ability to enter the minds of comatose people.
Oh, and she has an amnesiac vampire housemate as well.
As you might imagine, this is a bit fantastical with comedy/mystery elements.
I thought the main mystery was too easily solved, and there were too many subplots that were raised and left unresolved (no doubt setting the stage for future books in the series, but there were still way too many of them).
Also, what kind of turtle is Snappy? Or is he really a tortoise since he spends so much time out of water? Where are his heat and UVB lamps? Inquiring minds want to know.
There were a few spelling/grammar issues that were distracting. Using “who’s” instead of “whose,” “skies” instead of “sky’s,” and “loafs” instead of “loaves,” just to point out a few.
Even though the story didn’t take itself too seriously (and neither should you), it was okay if you need a light, humorous read
It was like a roller coaster. At some point, I was getting awed by where the book was leading, while at other, I was desperately waiting for the chapters to end. All the good parts went down the hill during the climax. The action scene seemed childish and the suspect was very predictable. I was really hoping for something exciting. A certain actions, scenes, and locations got way repetitive (Kat grabbing her sodas, her activity around the house, pool side, etc.).
It was still a fun and easy read. I enjoyed few characters and their humor.
This story follows the life of Kat Parker, a woman who goes to Vegas one weekend, and while there, finds herself in a yet-to-be-revealed catastrophic situation.
When she comes home, she has to learn to adjust to a new reality with very limited knowledge of what happened. But what we do know is this:
- Kat met a guy and married him, only to have him die soon after.
- She picked up a confused vampire on the way.
- She now has the ability to communicate with people in comas.
Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels will probably really enjoy this book. Kat is a very likeable character, as are most of the people we encounter throughout the story. There is an immediate issue that is resolved in this first instalment, which should provide enough closure for readers – but don’t expect to find out everything just yet!
My one very tiny issue with this story was that we are kept in the dark a lot. I don’t mind not knowing some details in a story, but I get frustrated if I feel the characters are aware of that information and are purposely withholding it. I want to know what Kat knows – even if that’s not very much!
I have already started reading the second book in the series, so I suppose the author’s gamble to make me wait paid off. And it’s just as addictive as the first!

Overall this was definitely worth reading and it was definitely a very good, enjoyable read.
Kat Parker and her entourage, including Snappy, are a delight to read about.
