Just as Jane Jameson's unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.
Jane's kitchen barely holds enough Faux Type O to satiate the cute teen's appetite and maintain Gabriel's jealous streak at a slow simmer. As if keeping her hyperactive childe from sucking the blood out of the entire neighbourhood isn't enough to deal with, the persnickety ghost of Jane's newly deceased grandma Ruthie has declared war on the fanged residents of River Oaks. Suddenly choosing monogrammed cocktail napkins and a cake she can't even eat seems downright relaxing in comparison.
Tensions inside the house are growing...and outside, a sinister force is aiming a stake straight for the center of Gabriel's heart. Most brides just have to worry about choosing the right dress, but Jane fears that, at this rate, she'll never make it down the aisle for the wedding all nice girls dream of...
Review: While this started out with the sweetest proposal I've ever read, and I almost cried at the end. I felt kind of bad for Jane she's finally got her life under control, no pyscos after her, the shops doing well and her relationship with Gabriel has stabilized to the point they are engaged. Then she goes and turns the milk delivery man. Well he does ask and she's known him for a long time. For once Jane does the right thing by the Concil actually more than once, but only after they discover a crazy redneck is after Gabriel. Which was a switch.
So planning a wedding, raising a newly turned teenager and keeping her fiance alive are more than enough but she also adds in a vindictive grandma ghost. While I never really liked Grandma Ruthie in any of the books, but I loved what the did to her. Served her right for treating her family like she did. I also felt bad for Jane when he wedding takes a backseat to all her other problems. Although she takes it in stride with her usual sarcastic wit. All in all another great read in this series.
