The Barnes & Noble Review
MaryJanice Davidson gives vampire queen Betsy Taylor a Christmas to remember in this fourth funny outing in her bestselling Undead series. This time, Betsy's holiday cup runneth over. For starters, Betsy's mother has finally erected Betsy's tombstone in the local cemetery. A psycho nut job serial killer is targeting tall, thin blondes in the Twin Cities: women who look like Betsy. Her vampire mate, Eric Sinclair, is balking at wedding planning and at the modern notion of communication, while her hateful stepmother has just had a baby. Of course, it's time for the irrepressible Betsy to launch an advice column for vampires trying to cope and to team up with a freshly killed ghost to track down her murderer. But why does her sister, Laura, keep taking out that sword? As usual, Betsy floats triumphantly in a sea of chaos, helped and hindered by the usual madcap cast of vampires and humans.

Here's a special quiz inspired by memorable moments in Undead and Unreturnable:

The questions:
  1. What are Betsy's biggest concerns as she stares at her own gravestone?
  2. Which of Betsy's extended family members is really the devil's daughter?
  3. Has Betsy been powerfully attractive to all men all her life?
  4. In which book did Betsy make her debut?
  5. Why is Eric Sinclair resisting the notion of their wedding?
  6. What are the top three signs that Eric is really a metrosexual?
  7. How will Betsy be able to survive the holidays?
The answers:
  1. She is baffled by the inscription on the tomb ("Our Sweetheart, Only Resting"), and she prefers calla lilies in her home, not wasted in a cemetery.
  2. Her stepsister, Laura.
  3. No, just since she died.
  4. She made her debut in Undead and Unwed.
  5. He claims they are already married by vampire law, so a wedding is redundant.
  6. He enjoys redecorating, advising Betsy's friends on fashion, and will only drink tea made from leaves, not bags.
  7. It's a trick question -- she's already dead!

As Christmas approaches, Betsy has more on her mind than Queenly duties. There's still shopping to be done, a Christmas tree to put up in Jessica's house (to the horror of the vamps that reside there!) and her new baby step-brother. There's also a wedding to plan (she keeps pushing back the date she'll make it official with Sinclair), the matter of former-Bee Jon wanting to write her life's story for a college class, the reappearnce of vampire librarian Marjorie who wants her to write a column for the new vamp-based newsletter, and that god-awful Book of the Dead. Add to that some other problems--there's a murderer called the Driveway Killer loose in Minneapolis, Sinclair isn't too happy about finding out that Betsy can hear his thoughts during their 'intimate' moments, and Jessica is dating Detective Nick--and you have another comedy of errors starring the Queen of the Vampires. This book is typical MaryJanice Davidson funny, sarcastic, and full of snarky dialogue. Add to that Eric Sinclair's delicious 'metrosexuality', and it's another winner.
