The hardships of single moms achieve new, comic heights in Michele Bardsley's paranormal romance. This is the story of Jessica Matthews, a soccer mom inadvertently turned vampire when she goes to take out the garbage. Turns out her hometown, Broken Heart, Oklahoma, has the highest rate of single parents -- and the highest population of vampires. Next thing you know, Jessica's sucking on the femoral artery of a red-hot Irish vampire, Patrick O'Halloran. She has officially joined the undead.
How Jessica manages to adjust to her new nonhuman nature, take care of her children by night and manage them remotely by day, come to terms with her late husband's infidelity, and find an eternal love is just part of the plot. Bardsley punctuates the story with Celtic Irish terms (there's even a glossary) and amusing references to The Princess Bride and the novels of Anne Rice. Ginger Curwen
