This is my first Kristen Painter book and I really enjoyed it. Her characters were likeable and the story progressed at a decent pace until the end. Both main characters are interesting and their chemistry felt realistic but the “love” portion of their relationship was unrealistic to me even for a paranormal romance. But what really made the book decent was the supporting characters and the location of Nocturne Falls.
My biggest issue as stated earlier is the reader already knows the outcome coming so why drag it out for what seemed like 4 chapters too many. I caught myself telling the audiobook to hurry up and get to the end already. For this reason alone, I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 stars.
B.J. Harrison was a good narrator and gave each character a decent voice and the accents weren’t too heavy.
I’ve been planning to read this one but it’s in series and I don’t want to be cut off. But dang! The cute cover really got me so I just said, why not? And dang! I ended up sleeping late that night haha.
This story started really good. It was my first time reading a story from Kristen Painter and I have to say that I’m really impressed. It was so very easy to read and I love the tone of this story. It didn’t gave me any bad vibes and I really like that. The words used were so easy to comprehend too and that’s definitely a big plus for me.
I really thought at first that this story is just going to be a very cute and sweet romance story. I thought the title about vampire is just an exaggeration but dang! There’s really a vampire in here! And guess what? They have their very own mystic falls. If you’re a vampire diaries fan, you’ll know what I mean. I didn’t grew up experiencing Halloween (I know what you’re thinking, and nope, I didn’t have boring childhood), but I’m so in love with the Nocturne Falls – a place where everyday is Halloween. I love costumes and I love supernatural beings so Nocturne Falls is definitely in my bucket list if ever there’s a place like that in real life.
Delaney and Hugh’s story was one entertaining read too. I love how their love story started; about how Delaney pretended to be the woman who was sent by Eternamate, an agency specializes on finding a mate, to Hugh which was arranged by his grandmother. I know the idea was kind of old news already but this story didn’t let me lose my attention, actually, it even intensified my desire to read it. All went well, even after meeting the bitchy ex gf and Dalaney’s not-so pleasant past experiences with guys. Piper the ex was one piece of work but I really like how Delaney handled her. You go girl! I really thought the author will add some annoying parts about jealousy and all in this story, but surprise surprise, it didn’t! And that’s definitely a big relief.
All was good until I came to the drama part. Yep, it was really so frustrating that I really want to punch Hugh senseless. I don’t want to tell you more about it, where’s the fun in that eh? But fortunately for me, it wasn’t dragged on too far in this story. Aside from some fun and romantic scenes, this story also added some suspense. And that’s another big plus for me. But there are a thing or two about this story that was quite wrong. It was kind of abrupt why the psycho ex gf were not mentioned anymore considering that I guess she’s the reason why the bad guys located Delaney. And lastly, the lack of mention about the capture of the bad guy, which was the previous boss of Delaney was quite unsettling. But there was ofcourse some mention about a plan on capturing him since they already have some evidence. But I guess that will do as long as both of the main characters were now happy and the drama part was now finally out of the picture.
The vampire that I know from the movies and TV were kind of the same in this story, but there’s some things added that I really like the more from the vampire in this story. What’s that? It’s the idea that they can have their own babies, isn’t that just fun? I’m still not used of the vampires and werewolves being friendly to each other in this story, but it was really great to read about that.
The reason why I was battling with my other self about the stars I am giving this story with was because of the drama part. It was really not cool. I am about to give this story a 3.5 stars but after reading it’s happily ever after, it changed to 4. Dang! I’m totally a sucker for HEA so yep, that’s it.
So if you want a sweet vampire-themed story without the heavy feeling, then The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride by Kristen Painter would be the perfect book for you. It’s the first book of the Nocturne Falls series but you can definitely read it standalone. Enjoy reading *wink.
Delaney heard an argument taking place in the next room, so she quietly opened the door, and watched what was taking place from her phone. For some reason, she decided she needed to record this argument. It was then that she witnessed her boss pull out a gun and shoot the man he was arguing with.
Afraid for her life, she quickly dashed out of the restaurant and down some back alleys. She found a door to a business that was open and came in. The business owner was busy but mistook Delaney to be her new assistant. Then dashed off to answer the phone. Delaney grabbed a few files from the desk to see what the job entailed, and learned quickly that it was a matchmaking business of sorts, and one of the girls was due to be in Georgia in a week.
Delaney learned everything about this appointment the girl was to be at, and then went home to gather a few clothes and her cat, making their escape to Georgia. Along the way, she stopped to email a copy of the video and make an anonymous call to the police in regards to what she had seen.
The town in Georgia touted that everyday was Halloween. Her 'date' turned out to be very handsome, but both she and he were holding back some dark secrets.
The book is well written, and it held my attention from the very beginning. This was a great way to escape for an afternoon. Highly recommended read.
