Review & Giveaway: Undead and Undermined by MaryJanice Davidson

Undead and Undermined is the tenth book in the Queen Betsy series by MaryJanice Davidson and a Berkley Sensation novel.

Book Blurb:

So this is what being dead feels like.  Vampire queen Betsy Taylor has awoken in a Chicago morgue, naked as a corpse.  Her last memory is reconciling with her husband, Eric Sinclair, after a time-traveling field trip, including an indirect route to hell (literally), with her sister, Laura.  

Now she’s Jane Doe #291, wrapped in plastic with a toe tag.  Betsy can’t help but wonder, what in hell happened?

My thoughts:

After Betsy and her sister returned from their time in hell and time jumping from the past to the future and back again - she wanted nothing more than to spend some quality time with her husband.

After a trip to happy, happy land with Eric - Betsy gathers her friends for smoothie time and some catching-up.  Only things are a bit different.

As in reality.

The people in this reality are not the people that Betsy left just a short time ago.  Apparently, while skipping around in the past - Betsy altered the future.  

Now someone is out to make sure that what Betsy changed in the past - does not alter their future.  Even if it means killing her in the present.

I love the Queen Betsy series.  Betsy is hilarious and I never fail to laugh out loud at the situations she finds herself involved in.

If I have one request, it would be that Eric be a little more forthright.  He seems to let Betsy run all over him at times, merely shaking his head and sighing.  

Don’t get me wrong, I like a strong, butt kicking heroine - but I want her male counterpart to be just as strong.

I give Undead and Undermined 4 out of 5 stars and can’t wait for the next installment - Undead and Unstable.
