When we found the guy and saw the holes in his neck, the cause of death was obvious.

“It wasn’t me,” I said. “I make one mistake and every little vampire attack is my fault? That’s so unfair!”

But it doesn’t matter how much I protest, unless I can prove my innocence I’ll be spending the nest decade in a padded coffin. So now I’m on mission to track down the real murderer. I’ve narrowed it down to three suspects.

All acting suspiciously.
All boys.
And all very cute…

Never Bite a Boy on the First Date is a fun and light-hearted vampire mystery.

Kira is such a fun heroine to follow. Because she’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. She’s new to vampiredom so naturally, she’s made some mistakes. And not completely inconsequential ones either. Kira is also a sixteen-year-old girl whether she’s a vampire or not, and her preoccupation with hot guys, disdain for school and conflict with her ‘parents’ make her a character that is very easy to empathise with.

This imperfection spreads to her family. Her brother, sister, brother-in-law, mum and dad (all vampires and not related to Kira) are endearingly oddball. Their fashions and traditions all reflect the time that they were turned in and truly comply to the idea of freezing in mind and body when you become a vampire. They’re such a mismatch bunch!

In the last quarter of Never Bite a Boy on the First Date, the relaxed tone turns sharper with shocking revelations and surprising twists. Throughout the novel Kira has three suspects for Tex’s murder and investigates them all. By dating them, obviously. Now, I had my theories, and after a few false starts I finally guessed the identity of the murderer correctly. Rare, I know.

This is a fantastically fun standalone novel and I recommend it to fans of fanged fiction who want something light and easy.
