La Vida Vampire by Nancy Haddock

From the Back of the Book:

Being dead isn't all it's cracked up to be. Take it from Francesca Marinelli, trapped underground for over 200 years and rediscovered during the renovation of a Victorian mansion in historic St. Augustine. A tourist attraction herself, she's well suited for a job as an Old Ghost Town Tour guide. Francesca's due for a new lease on afterlife-and with enough sunblock, she can finally live it.

Unfortunately, everything she learned about men is a little dated. And when people in her tour group turn up dead, naturally the police suspect her. After all, she is a vampire. Which is why a crazed vampire-hunting vigilante squad is out to get her as well. Between the dead bodies, the stalkers, and a seriously non-existent love life, she's starting to wish she was dead. Or at least buried, where she was safe.

Shaunie's opinion:

I gave this one 3 of 5 stars, it was enjoyable, but doesn't really stick out for me. I liked Francesca, that she was a ghost tour guide, and that she was getting into some modern hobbies and past times, but I found the bad guys, and even the male love interest a little exaggerated. With so many other books to read, I probably won't actively seek out the rest of the series, but do want to say that it was a fun read, and would certainly continue it if I come across it or have a friend share it. If the above blurb sounds interesting to you, definitely give it a try! There are two more books in the series so far: Last Vampire Standing, and Always the Vampire, just released this year.
