Book Review: Undead and Unwed

Title: Undead and Unwed (Undead #1)
Author: Mary Janice Davidson
Genre: Romance, Chick Lit, Paranormal
Publication: 2004
Rating: 3/5

It'a been a helluva week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, to top things off, she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother) is that she can't seem to stay dead. Every night she rises with a horrible craving for blood. She's not taking too well to a liquid diet. 

Worst of all, her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious, power-hungry vampire in five centuries - a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe, natch. Frankly, Betsy couldn't care less about vamp politics, but they have a powerful weapon of persuasion: designer shoes. How can any self-respecting girl say now? But a collection of Ferragamos isn't the only temptation for Betsy. It's just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair - a seductive bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the heart..

I was blog walking to a few chiclit book review blog and found out about this book. When I saw the rating and synopsis, I know I just have to try and read this one. Plus, I have never read any paranormal romance/chiclit before... 

Betsy is fun, kind-hearted and loud girl with an obsession towards designer shoes. She tried to live her life as if she wasn’t undead, but found herself caught in a war between vampires; Nostro and Sinclair. Plus her new vampire friend, Tina, seemed to think that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen and she wanted Betsy to join side with Sinclair. Not that Betsy cared about the war. But when she was bribed with a few designer shoes in exchange to help Sinclair... Well that’s a different story.

I like Betsy’s human sidekick, Marc; the doctor and Jessica; the billionaire. And I really, really love her relationship with Sinclair. They started off in the wrong foot, and their relationship gets better towards the end. Or is it?

Undead and Unwed was a fast and fun read. The story started off a bit slow with Betsy trying to adjust her new life and picked up the speed towards the end. I definitely recommended for anyone who loves to read something light and funny.


  1. This is interesting. So her friends knew she was dead? Wow... I'm sure they did freak out initially. Glad you have enjoyed reading it. :)

    1. It's an interesting book indeed. And her friends knew that she's a vampire :)
