    If you like a story with bite, you'll like this book.

    Midnight Brunch at Casa Dracula is the second book of the Vampires of Casa Dracula trilogy. This book is not only one of the most unique books I have ever read, but if you're a vampire fan, like myself (fanpire), and you've already read all the Anne Rice and Stephenie Meyer books, this is a great transitional book into the real world. It's not all, like, "I vant to suck your blood" and such, but it still has that dark, sexy edge that comes with the vampire territory, and it's a lot of fun. The main character, Milagro De Los Santos, is a sassy, saucy latino chick that has some of the best one liners I've ever read in a book, while still showing intelligence. Milagro is your typical, struggling writer who has met with some not-so-typical situations, like being infected with Vampirism and meeting one of the hottest guys ever. Now, in the second book, she must continue with this odd lifestyle she's found herself wound up in, and she finds even more trouble and such in this cool sequel. I highly recommend it. Enjoy!

    A Fun Vampire Story!

    I bought the first book 'Happy Hour at Casa Dracula' off a clearance rack because it sounded interesting. I couldn't wait to get this one. I don't like 'horror' stories or movies, however, it seems people get the idea that 'vampire' stories must be graphic and scarey. This is just a fun, vampire story. The characters are interesting, well-developed and have an edge of suspense and humor that keeps you reading to the last page. My friends have also enjoyed reading this two-book series.

    Highly-Entertaining Fast-Paced Book for Your Summer Reading List!

    MIDNIGHT BRUNCH is the sequel to HAPPY HOUR AT CASA DRACULA and events in this book take place a year after Milagro first met Oswald. MIDNIGHT BRUNCH starts with Milagro living very happily with Oswald but feeling excluded from his vampire family. When they argue before Oswald goes on a business trip it leaves Milagro with plenty of chances to get into new trouble without him. The writing style of MIDNIGHT BRUNCH is slightly different to HAPPY HOUR AT CASA DRACULA. Milagro¿s antics and observations are still laugh-out-loud funny but the emphasis in the book has shifted from romantic comedy of manners to vampire comedy mystery with romance elements. This means that Milagro no longer speaks like a Latina Jane Austen character (and yes, I know that Jane Austen didn¿t write about Latina vampires!) The result of the style change is a story with both dialogue that flows beautifully and a plot that keeps the reader hooked. The story is told in first person by Milagro. Throughout the novel the reader sees her character develop from being someone who is like a ¿beach-read¿ to being someone much more ¿serious and sincere.¿ Which is a relief - because there is only so many times that I can laugh at a character making the same mistakes over and over again in a book series without getting irritated. It will be interesting to see how Milagro¿s character develops further if the author writes another book in this series. (Fingers crossed that she will!) The vampires in MIDNIGHT BRUNCH are still more natural than supernatural, passing quiet lives living as humans and generally satisfying their cravings by drinking only animal blood. Paranormal romance readers looking for sex, blood and death may be disappointed by the almost mundane lives that these vampires lead but the well written characters - who manage to be realistic, comic and appealing - have a lot more going for them than just supernatural thrills, which should make Midnight Brunch appeal to a wider audience. Summing up - MIDNIGHT BRUNCH is a highly entertaining, fast-paced read and definitely a book to add to your summer reading list.

    A reviewer

    In California wannabe writer Milagro de los Santos has moved into the ranch house of her beloved plastic surgeon Dr. Oswald Grant in spite of his family¿s delicate condition Oswald and the rest of the Grants suffer from 'genetic autosomal recessive disorder¿ also called vampirism. Besides Oswald, Milagro and his grandmother seem to get along so she feels more like a princess.-------------- However word of a purebred human living and loving their son has staked horror into the hearts of Oswald's concerned parents. They arrive for a clan naming ceremony as well as to drive out the evil human. They exclude Milagro from attending a family rite involving a midnight blood curdling ceremony for his cousin's newborn. When Oswald leaves on a medical mission, two other vampires Willem Dunlop and Silas, decide they need a human sacrifice to launch the Project for a New Vampire Century Milagro as a vampire lover is perfect.-------------------- The sequel to HAPPY HOUR AT CASA DRACULA is a delightful satire that lampoons the vampire romance sub-genre. Milagro is wonderful with her hot saucy observations on life and death amidst the vampire horde. Fans will enjoy her latest zany escapades as she tries to stay one bite away from the screaming mob.--------------- Harriet Klausner
