Title: Whiskey, Vamps, and Thieves Series: Southern Vampire Detective #1
Author: Selene Charles
Meet Scarlett Smith, Southern Vampire Detective…
Well, at least that's what she is today. Not too long ago she was just a regular Southern Belle in love with her soldier, dreaming of a life full of babies and white picket fences.
Then she died.
Now she's a vampire in a shifter's world trying to make sense of her sudden thirst for blood and her strange ability to read the emotions off of others. Especially as it pertains to death—she and death have a strange affinity for one another now, but best not to dwell on that subject too long. She's still totally just a normal girl, except now she solves murders and drinks a little type-O on the side. No big deal, she's certainly nothing special or amazing...right? Except every once in a while she senses something stirring inside of her. Something dark. Something ancient. And something very, very powerful. But for now it's just easier to pretend she's nothing more than a vampire with a badge and a gun who just so happens to have the hots for not one, but two different shifters one of whom is her step-brother.
No one ever said being dead would be easy.
Scarlett is a vampire detective living with a pack of werewolves. She's always secretly been in love with her "brother" who doesn't seem to notice her in that way, and she's always been grudgingly accepted among the pack. But, when things start to get crazy in the human world and people start dying she's going to help out and see what's going on. However, her old flame has come back, and her brother is acting strange and out of sorts. Then you add in the crazy alpha, and you have a world of problems. She must find the killer before it all falls apart.
This book started off really interesting, and good. But, then I felt like it shifted some and I didn't like the direction in it went in. I liked the main character, but I hated her back and forth on her feelings, and I hated how a lot of stuff wasn't explained, and the end just frustrated me. But, I know this is a series and more answers will come, I just don't think I want to read more.
It was a nice story to pass the time with, but I don't see myself getting more into the series than that.
