Undead and Uneasy (Queen Betsy, Book 6) *Hardcover*
10 journalers for this copy...
Weddings are never easy. But when you're Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor, they can become downright deadly...
In the days leading up to The Big Day, Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor seems to have a full house and the wedding guests have yet to arrive. Along with her human buddies, there's a ghost, a werewolf, and a Fiend crashing at her place. And though her fiance, Vampire King Eric Sinclair, conveniently disappears when the conversation turns to seating charts and flower arrangements, he does manage to make his oh-so-sexy presence known at other moments.
Cold feet are no surprise, especially with an undead groom. But when Sinclair truly goes missing-and not just to avoid wedding preparations-along with most of her friends and loved ones, Betsy is frantic. Alone and afraid for the fate of everyone she loves, Betsy can't trust anyone as she tries to find them and whoever is behind all the disappearances. And what happens next will shake the foundation of the vampire world forever.
Loved this installment of the Undead series. After the disappointment of Undead & Unpopular I really enjoyed this book. Betsy is not nearly as shallow in this book but still is Betsy. lol MJD ties up a lot of loose ends and gives us a fun chapter in the life of Betsy the Vampire Queen.
I am going to offer this as a Bookray via BookObsessed & Club Vlad. Hopefully others will enjoy it as much as I did.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!!
I'll get it mailed back out to the next person sometime next week.
Oh, and by the way, it was better than other installments in the series, but I didn't think it was as great as everyone had been telling me. The brunt of the book is just Betsy, without her friends, and it made me realize that what makes the books funny are her interactions with her friends. Sorry, but Betsy alone is pretty damn boring.
It will be a couple of days until she is over her jetlag and after that we should have some fun!
I'll tell you all about it when she departs.
This afternoon I mailed Undead and Uneasy to Musie, so it should arrive by the end of next week.
Anyhoo, this is supposed to go on to Hoser and Ace next, though I'd also told Lauren that I'd send her my copy of the previous book along with this, so I may still have to try to cram that one into my reads before this one goes off to her anyway, if she hasn't yet picked up a copy elsewhere.
To make a long story short... :D I'll know better after I talk to Lauren when this will be getting in the mail to her, or if it needs to wait for me to at least read Undead and Unpopular first to send along with. Actually, when I just went to check on the name of the book, I realized that the reason I haven't read it yet is because I wanted to read the 2 werewolf ones—Dead and Loving It and Derik's Bane—first since I'd heard that the werewolves and Betsy meet in the Unpopular one. LMK if this isn't the case...
UPDATE 10/22/07: After talking to Lauren, she does still need Undead and Unpopular first so I'm going to hang on to this for a bit to get that read first and send it along with this one. Actually, I just started on Derik's Bane today, to get the necessary werewolf background in since they appear in these later Betsy books. :)
Good thing it is reading week next week! I should be able to read this very quickly then I'll pass it along.
While I've enjoyed the last couple of books, I didn't find them as entertaining as the first one. I think this book picked up the pace a bit more. I wonder what's next for Betsy though, now that she's finally married!
I'm in the USA right now so I'll give this to my mom when I'm back home.
Betsy must handle things by herself. She deals with fiends, werewolves and a few very unfriendly vampires. I found this book a bit faster paced, due to the increase in action. Still Betsy is a vampire bimbo. She is the vampire Queen but at times she just is so dumb.
a fluff book :)
Thanks to all who participated in this successful ray!!
