Wonderful premise, horrible story, bad end
The concept for the story is great. But about half-way through the author totally stopped written the story and then just began throwing characters around with no rational thought.
I'm not going to put in any spoilers here but:
Murders happen for no good reason. We are led to believe one person might have killed someone, but never told important information that anyone could have found just by reading a newspaper article.
It takes the protagonist no effort at all to find the person she's looking for. But there's also no reason why that person couldn't have found the protagonist. And should have!
People turn out to be vampires who never should have been!
People want to be vampires when they shouldn't!
The very end of the book shows no careful construction. It is as if the author decided that she had enough time with the book and then just wanted it over.
Or perhaps the publisher decided to keep everyone at a status quo so they could turn up in the next book.
Meanwhile the narrator is good, but her Southern accents are so thick that the book began to sound like an episode of the old "Amos and Andy" radio show.
The book started out so well that I was actually angy when it ended so poorly.
"This is the way the book will end...not with a bang, but a whimper."
