I received this e-book from Bookplex as a free copy
I really enjoyed this book, loved Gabriel(hero) & Dori...the supernatural aspect kept me very intriqued throughout the book, I had never really thought the subject out much until I read this read
thanks for the wonderful opportunity to explore this genre, I look forward to another soon

Cold in California is a completely original and very interesting take on the world of vampires and (for the lucky ones) their lives after they die. (Again!) This was such a fun and entertaining read for me! The Characters are well developed. They all have their own unique and quirky personalities. The interaction between them had me laughing and I truly enjoyed getting to know each of them. So, what happens to a vampire when they die? As much as I love to read vampire books, I've never really put much thought into it. Well, none of my beloved hero's have ever been "twice baked" before ;) Gabriel Strickland is hungry for nourishment and for companionship. He's on an impromptu "date" at a Cubs baseball game when the unimaginable happens. A freak accident. And just like that, Gabriel is dead! He wakes up in West Hollywood, in a place of limbo. A holding tank. He has been given a second chance. A chance for redemption. A chance to make up for his past and to choose between Heaven or Hell. He could be here for centuries waiting for his final judgement. But he isn't alone. There are others who have also been chosen to get a second chance. Not just vampires. Many other legendary and mythical creatures. All that they do while here will count for them or against them. Since he has time to kill, Gabriel decides to get a job. He meets Dori Gallagher at her place of employment, The City of Angels Employment Agency. They are instantly drawn to one another. As with any great romance, there are difficulties along the way! There are lots of twists and turns that will keep a spark in your interest. I was absolutely hooked from the beginning! It's so different from anything else I've read!! I highly recommend this book to all who are looking for another great vampire series to read! You will not be disappointed! This is a wonderful fist book in what I believe is a great new series!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
