Sucks to be Me
by Kristen Painter
I’ve never loved a vampire so much! Belladonna Barrone, the unhappy, middle-aged trophy wife of a mobster makes a wonderful vampire. She has good intentions, but she’s had to live a narrow, twisted life in the crime world.
Add fangs, and her world shifts. No longer is she under the rule of her husband, his mob, or any bad guy for that matter. The story of Belladonna’s turning and initiation into eternal life is hilarious. I couldn’t stop reading it, and I cheered for her all the way. In a larger sense, Painter gives a middle-aged woman superpowers, and let them take on the world.
Kristen Painter is a masterful writer. Her prose is smooth, her characters unique and her plot tightly spun with just the right amount of twists and turns salted with humor.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes Paranormal Women’s Fiction, Vampire stories, funny tales, or well-written genre fiction.
I posted five-star reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbub.
Magical Midlife Madness: A Paranormal Women’s Fiction
by K.F. Breene
I laughed all the way through K.F. Breene’s book, Magical Midlife Madness. Jesse, the heroine, is a self-effacing middle-aged woman in crisis mode. Down on her luck as a result of a man, she takes the job of caretaking a seriously- spooky mansion so she doesn’t have to live with her parents and deal with her father’s nudity. The woman has spunk and sass and is so darn relatable to, you love her within a few pages. I cheered and cringed for her through her whole adventure. The book is an Amazon bestseller at the moment and first in the charts in several categories.
What I like about it most is that the main character’s spunk. She kicks middle-aged female angst to the curb and takes on the world on her own terms. My next favorite thing is the mansion. It’s deliciously mysterious, magical and haunting.
The book is funny, poignant and uplifting. K.F. Breene’s characters are highly unique and engaging, and the plot is mesmerizing. It’s flashlight worthy.
I highly recommend this book for
