Told in first-person narrative in a chick lit tone, Undead and Unwed is a story about Elizabeth (Betsy) Taylor. Betsy is a loud, smart-mouth woman with a penchant for fine shoes. After a week from hell, she gets hit by a car and dies. However, she wakes up “undead” – in a coffin. After a few startling discoveries, she realizes that she is not only a vampire, but an extraordinary one. For instance, garlic and crosses don’t bother her in the least, and she has superhuman powers – she can scale a building, and fight off other vampires with a flick of her wrist. And more.

Review: Sex and the Single Ghost

Being an avid fan of Fantasy/Paranormal chick lit, I was eager to read this book. It’s a story about a girl named Claire who died nine years ago. For the past near decade she has sat in “Purgatory”, which is sort of like a version of the Afterlife, or Heaven.

Every nine years, souls in the Afterlife get to go back down to earth in their original physical body for one night – on Halloween. If in that time the person manages to touch a human’s soul, they are allowed to stay on earth for nine days and nights.

Claire is desperate to get down to earth because she is dying to have sex. Yes, that’s right – apparently in the Afterlife, there is no sex, no eating chocolate, no fun. (Who knew the Afterlife would be full of horny ghosts??) So upon her trip back to earth, she tries to track down the one man that she has desperately wanted to sleep with for years.

Little does she know that he is also “dead”, too.. and returning to Earth as a ghost.
