The Queen Betsy series is still very entertaining, though sometimes I have to turn back the pages to recall what had happened. The everyday life of Betsy and her housemates just can't keep me interested. So, meanwhile Betsy’s lovelorn admirer, the ex-blade-warrior-now-a-biography-writer Jon is writing the not-so-fictional biography of Betsy, Betsy babysits her brother, BabyJon, she also contributes to the new vampire newsletter, and she is planning the first vampire monarch wedding of all time – with her openly reluctant fiancé, Eric Sinclair. There was a hint about a serial killer at the beginning of the novel, so I hoped for some excitement, and maybe a connection between the murderer and Betsy, but (view spoiler)[nope… He is just an ordinary serial killer, with no awareness of neither Betsy nor the vampire society. So no threatening conspiracy or coup by him. (hide spoiler)] Betsy and Eric have a relationship crisis, and fight after fight. I really felt for Eric, I could understand his fear. Actually, I’m wondering what would happen if Betsy simply commanded Eric to bear that certain ability what she does. Remember, just like she had managed to make him able to see ghosts in Undead and Unemployed. While the plot is lame, and nothing groundbreaking or unexpected happens, the author smartly builds the tension and mystery around her characters. The appearance of the old and the new secondary characters are well-balanced. Finally, you get some information about Jess: she dates, and it turns out that she has a job. Jon and Nick are back, George shows some development, Laura and her snaps are more and more interesting and creepy, and I’m really looking forward to reading more about Cathy. My favorite quotes.

    While I enjoy the antics of Betsy, this book felt rushed and unfinished. When it ended, I scratched my head wondering where the rest of the story was. The only reason I gave it 3 stars instead of two, I did enjoy what was on the page. I will continue. However if this happens again, I may give up on the series.

    From a blog post I wrote in 2006: As part of my weekend binge reading, I plowed through the first four books in Mary Janice Davidson's Undead... series. The titles are: Undead and Unemployed, Undead and Unwed, Undead and Unappreciated and Undead and Unreturnable.

The titles are: Undead and Unemployed, Undead and Unwed, Undead and Unappreciated and Undead and Unreturnable. Davidson combined two of my favorite genres, Chick Lit and Vampire, into a wonderful series. The main character, Betsy Taylor, gets hit be a car on her 30th birthday and wakes up in a coffin at the funeral home. What concerns her most is not that she's dead (or undead if you want to be picky) but that she's dressed in a polyester suit and shoes from Payless. She eventually finds that she's the prophesized Queen of the Vampires. What follows are several adventures where she spends most of her time critiquing the wardrobe choices of her friends and foes and stressing over her men troubles. If you've read the Shopaholic books, you've got the idea. Despite bumbling through and thinking mostly about herself, she manages to resolve all of the issues. Lots of fun supporting characters (including the very hot King of the Vampires) in these books and each one has a little mini-story of its own. Not too much with the gore but there is sex (always a good thing) and some violence. I liked these a lot and my friend, Chris, has the 5th book already. I can't wait to get a hold of it.

The plot was nice, somewhat original or had its own unique flair. The writing was good, and the pretense wasn’t half bad, the romance was simmering with few exceptions. The male/female lead showed hints of abuse both verbal and physical, or signs of spot on or forced chemistry. It was a tiny bit predictable. Overall, liked it enough, entertaining.

    3.5 stars. This light, fluffy series continues with Betsy planning a wedding to her reluctant fiancé, Eric, getting to know her half sister, Lauren, the daughter of the devil and attempting to solve a series of serial slayings for which she is the perfect target victim. Well somewhat more tightly plotted than the previous book in the series, this book still leaves some things to be desired in that department. It’s very much a continuation and slight advancement of stories from the previous books 3.5 stars.

It’s very much a continuation and slight advancement of stories from the previous books and doesn’t feel like it could stand as a separate tale of its own. Eric and Betsy do a series of fighting and making up scenes in this book, I honestly think if they’ve had one fight and had worked it out more slowly over the course of the novel the book would have been better for it. But this is still a fun series and it’s nice to see some of the secondary characters, like Jessica and Lauren, expand and show slightly different sides of their personalities. And the return of blade warrior John, still in love with Betsy and now working to write the story of her life, was a nice nod to the reader, especially the bit at the very end where the first book is referenced.

    Rating: 2.5/5 I do like that Betsy gives as much as she takes. I’d feel much better if it were a tad bit more effective, though, lol.

I still want to read those books, so I have got them ordered from Bookdepository (I gave up waiting on Amazon). A lot of things seemingly happened between the first book and this book. It seems that Betsy went full-on evil (I so want to see that), she found a sister (who is apparently also supernatural, child of the devil), and she did a ton of other things. While I was a bit confused at times, I did get into the book just fine, sure, I had questions, but it didn't hinder my reading that much. Betsy was once again a super girl, she was fun, hilarious, but boy, she needs to learn to talk a bit more with Sinclair. Not saying anything about THAT... may not have been the wisest move. Or the moving of the wedding date. Or the fact she just allowed a vampire guy who is interested in her in her home to stay for a while (gee, what did you think Sinclair, your lover and fiance would say of that). Or well the fact she allowed her life story to be written down... Yep, she makes some really bad decisions in this one. But I just couldn't help liking her. As she did a whole lot of good things. Like helping out ghosties (apparently our girl can now see and talk to ghosts), hunting for a serial killer (oh my), helping out one of the fiends who is now more human, writing columns for a vampire newsletter, and of course setting up a Christmas tree in a house with vampires (what could possibly go wrong?). Plus her snark and the fact she will just sprout out anything without thinking. At times it was a bit too much (disrespectful), but mostly I was laughing a lot. Sinclair however took a turn for the worse. He was super-insecure in this whole book. Being mean towards Betsy. Instead of just talking it over, or explaining things, no, no he had to do some hissy fits and days full of pouting. *sighs* I just wanted to smack him. She loves you, she wants you, she choose you. Yes, she makes some stupid decisions, but I would think you know this by now. And yes, that book says x, but really, with how things are going at the moment, don't you think you are overthinking this a bit too much? So yeah, hot, sexy, snarky Sinclair was replaced by grumpysinclairkins. Eventually things settled, and I did love how he always came to Betsy's rescue (even if she may not always like it). The serial killer was a nice addition to the book, not saying that I approve of serial killers, but eh, you get what I mean. Well I hope. :P It was quite exciting, intriguing, and I was eager to see what Betsy (and her sister) would be doing to stop the serial killer. I didn't always like the sister, she was quite nice at times, but I found her a bit too cocky, and I didn't like what she did near the end. I know you have issues, but hit a wall, or do something else. This isn't what you want. You are just endangering others now. Jessica and her romance? He he, I was definitely not expecting it, but I have to say I had no problems with it. If anything I was delighted that Jessica would also finally have someone. :) Of course, even with the fact that Sinclair was such a grumpysinclairkins, we still have some very steamy sex scenes. The ending was great, though I am sure certain things that happened will be coming back in the next books. I can't wait! All in all, I need more of this series. It is funny, sexy, a bit steamy at times, features fabulous characters, and much more. Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/

    About the same as the others - a 2 star book that was helped a lot by Nancy Wu reading it. There's not a lot of story, reminds me of a soap opera, but it is kind of funny. Nothing remarkable, just the continuing saga...

However, I feel like these are the little things that hint at good things in the future but not really delivering. Whatever happened to the mystery of the gardener? I can't really pin down the theme of this book. It felt like disparate parts strung together. None of them are really explored in depth. I think the blurb was misleading. The blurb included the serial killer plot when it doesn't really figure into it much. I feel like it was just one of the many events in the book. The events are the serial murders, Laura becoming devilish, Sinclair and Betsy fighting, Jon writing an autobiography, Betsy writing an advice column for new vampires, Betsy babysitting, Nick asking Jessica out, and Sinclair erasing Jon's memory. Honestly, the book seems lost. I thought it found direction in the second book but the third and fourth book tells me otherwise. I feel like Betsy's personality mirrors the way she hops from job to job. It changes with every book and it undermines my confidence in the series. Instead of developing a voice with each new book, the book presents Betsy with a malleable personality. The story revolves around Betsy. Apparently, she and Sinclair are having pre-wedding jitters, which involves fighting a lot. Some of the reasons include Jon, Betsy having the possibility of having a baby, Sinclair attending to vampire business without Betsy, Betsy being able to read Sinclair's mind during the act. There is also the minor plot of the serial killer hunting down blondes. It was solved straightforwardly. Laura killed him and Betsy's concerned that she is turning to the dark side. Killing the serial killer gives Laura plausible deniability that she did the right thing but Betsy's concerned that Laura killed in the first place.

    Rawr...Betsy drives me nuts, makes me laugh but annoys me so much. So I really don't know where I stand with regards of a rating. It's not a 2 more like 2.43 so not enough for ME to round it to 3 stars. I'm going read the next book at some point because there is a story arc that seems promising, so Betsy you undead chicklet we will meet again but not anytime soon. Also just set a Wedding date already.

    Betsy is getting married and nothing will stand in her way. There are things that are trying to intrude. Like a recently murdered ghost who want help in stopping her killer. Does Betsy do the smart thing about the killer. Of course not and poor Eric her intended groom is beside himself. This series is great fun. The audio book reader puts just the right tone of voice into her reading.

    This didn't have the same action as the previous books but it was just as funny. I feel like maybe it was a setup for the next storyline. I want to hear George talk again!

    The fourth book of the Queen Betsy series is where the series settles down into the episodic status quo which will be maintained for a good number of years. Eventually, Mary Janice Davidson will disrupt this status quo with some dramatic events that will polarize her fanbase. Here, however, it's just the comfortable Addams Family-esque world of the adult Buffy and her oddball collection of friends.

Ther The fourth book of the Queen Betsy series is where the series settles down into the episodic status quo which will be maintained for a good number of years. Eventually, Mary Janice Davidson will disrupt this status quo with some dramatic events that will polarize her fanbase. Here, however, it's just the comfortable Addams Family-esque world of the adult Buffy and her oddball collection of friends. A good idea of how the Queen Betsy books work can be explained with this book as an example. There's a serial killed loose in Minneapolis and it's not Betsy's problem. The Driveway Killer is on the loose, targeting blonde leggy women who fit Betsy's profile. This in no way impacts Betsy's life or concern until a victim's ghost physically inserts herself into Betsy's life and demands she solve the murder. Even then, Betsy forgets about it like three times. To liken the books to a television show, it's best to think of them as a supernatural Seinfeld. They're the vampire series about nothing. Events happen but the Betsy characters generally try to avoid actual plot as much as (in)humanly possible. To give you a sense of Betsy's priorities, the Driveway Killer being stopped ranks below her starting a literal advice column where she makes up the letters to her. Also, a (former) vampire hunter writing her biography which he can't publish. While Queen Betsy works entirely well as a slice-of-life comedy and romance, I also think it functions as a parody of the typical urban fantasy drama out there. In Anita Blake or other works, the serial killer is a pulse-pounding, nerve wracking drama which inevitably is revealed to be some sort of supernatural character which only our heroine can stop. Here, the Driveway Killer is a pathetic manchild with women issues. You know, like actual serial killers tend to be. It's little details like this which keep the books fresh and interesting. I love the relationship between Betsy and her sister Laura here, which gets developed in the not-hunt for the Driveway Killer. Betsy assumes Laura is the sweet and church-going better sister of the family but, in fact, Laura has a temper the size of Hell. It lays an interesting groundwork for future stories where Betsy has to reign her in and prevent her from lashing out with all of that repressed fundamentalist rage. There's actually a fairly terrifying scene where Laura almost kills Betsy, or would if not for the fact she's the Queen of the Vampires and immune to being staked through the heart by a demon sword. It's not quite up there with Betsy getting into a fist-fight with Satanic Lena Olin but it's one of the more surprising moments of the series. Oops. This book also marks a permanent change in the relationship between Betsy and Sinclair, moving them from King and Queen in name only to something more permanent. I really like the relationship between these two as the irreverent Betsy makes a good contrast to the more traditional vampire Sinclair. The back and forth between the two could have been dragged out indefinitely but while I didn't much care for their fight over telepathy (she has it, he doesn't), I felt the change at the end of the book really worked. What makes Sinclair and Betsy's relationship work so well? I think it has to do with the fact they're both flawed people who play off each other well but also compromise a lot. In a lot of paranormal romance, the male is either idealized perfect or controlling. Sinclair is constantly learning to give up control as a vampire but unafraid to apologize when he's being a dick. Well, eventually unafraid to apologize. Likewise, he does have feelings which Betsy often hurts by her unfamiliarity with vampirism. In conclusion, Undead and Unreturnable is a fun book and another great installment in a stand-out series of comedic hi-jinks. Nothing really happens much in this boo but that's kind of the point. While not quite as enjoyable as Undead and Unwed, I still had a lot of fun with this book and think you will too. 8/10

    While Eric Sinclair considered them consorts and not in need of a wedding ceremony, Elizabeth (Betsy) Taylor had always dreamed of her wedding day. She was having a wedding, she was the Queen Vampire and no one was going to stand in her way of having that dream wedding. Not her new born baby brother, not the growing friendship with her half sister (the devil’s spawn), not the vampire fiend living in the basement, not the human serial killer, not the new ghost checking out all of her shoes, and d While Eric Sinclair considered them consorts and not in need of a wedding ceremony, Elizabeth (Betsy) Taylor had always dreamed of her wedding day. She was having a wedding, she was the Queen Vampire and no one was going to stand in her way of having that dream wedding. Not her new born baby brother, not the growing friendship with her half sister (the devil’s spawn), not the vampire fiend living in the basement, not the human serial killer, not the new ghost checking out all of her shoes, and definitely not her intended groom. Everything seemed to be working against this wedding that she had already rescheduled, more than once, but with determination she would succeed. The solution to some of the obstacles might be finding and helping her cop friend catch the “Driveway Killer” Book 4 ….. Another humorous break from the seriousness of most paranormal romance novels. This one went really fast, I was almost surprised to find myself done. As always, Queen Betsy is the Shop-aholic shoe aficionado with a strange twist of her own on being a vampire. I really enjoyed George’s contributions (the vampire fiend in the basement). Entertainment value is there, as always I liked the laughs, there wasn’t really a clear main story to this book. Format reminded me of a soap opera, bouncing from one story line to another with little bits of overlap and some cross over between them. Haven’t decided if this kind of mix works for me, so I guess I will have to read the next one (Undead and Unpopular) to try and figure it out.

I absolutely adore Betsy and Sinclair together still. I felt like what the book lacked in plot/action it made up for in character devolopment. The two had a nasty fight. It was good because who likes to read a book where they are in happily ever after the whole time. It's not interesting and most importantly it's not realistic. There were some parts where I thought that Sinclair was acting terribly douchtastic. However when he explained himself, I was able to understand more. I still thought he overreacted a bit, but I get his point. Going to reserve the next book! Hopefully there is more George the fiend. I missed him in this book, but I have a feeling something big's gonna happen to him in the coming books. Can't wait to see what crap befalls Betsy in the next book....

    As Christmas approaches, Betsy has more on her mind than Queenly duties. There's still shopping to be done, a Christmas tree to put up in Jessica's house (to the horror of the vamps that reside there!) and her new baby step-brother.

Add to that some other problems--there's a murderer called the Driveway Killer loose in Minneapolis, Sinclair isn't too happy about finding out that Betsy can hear his thoughts during their "intimate" moments, and Jessica is dating Detective Nick--and you have another comedy of errors starring the Queen of the Vampires. This book is typical MaryJanice Davidson; funny, sarcastic, and full of snarky dialogue. Add to that Eric Sinclair's delicious "metrosexuality", and it's another winner.

    Some people criticized Undead and Unreturnable because it didn't really have a strong plot (if the other books had more, I must have missed it somehow), but considering how many times I laughed out loud (well, really, it was more like barking—what with the sinus infection and all), it just wasn't a big issue for me. These books just make me smile, and sometimes that's enough. Which isn't to say there isn't any meaningful content to them, of course.

I think I hurt myself laughing at that one . . . he sounds just like my husband. Aside from the part where he's an extremely gorgeous vampire, that is. :-D 8/10

Laura has a few moments with her mother (Mrs Devil) and a spat with George (who I love so much!!!)... Sinclair of course is a petty sod at times but still wins me out in the end... Once again I am left with smiles and looking forward to the next book...

    This will be my last Queen Betsy book. As much as I like the characters, there was just no plot here! You get a few promises of interesting stuff that might happen later, particularly with Betsy’s sister (the daughter of the devil), but nothing actually happens. I expected there to be a lot more involvement between Betsy and Nick as they search for the Driveway Killer, but instead, it’s all wrapped up inside of a chapter in a pretty anti-climatic way. Oh yeah, you get some expected bickering bet This will be my last Queen Betsy book. As much as I like the characters, there was just no plot here!

Oh yeah, you get some expected bickering between Betsy and Sinclair, but that’s pretty much par for the course now. There wasn’t even any vampire politics. So I’m no longer wasting my time.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was was a little 'disjointed'. The different stories going on just didn't seem to mesh together. Who cares that the Driveway Killer was targeting women who fit Betsy's profile if he never came after her?! I mean, was anyone else expecting that?! Could have been a hilarious scene! Anyways, it was just lacking somewhere, so I found I didn't like it as much as the others. Still moved straight into the next one though, hope it picks back up a little.

    Betsy is fun and pretty brainless. I enjoy the stories enough to pick them up between other books but I really can't recommend them for anything but a bit of fun and fluff. There is more relationship drama with Eric in this one and lots of make up sex :D. I can't say Betsy is really growing in power since her biggies seem to be talking to ghosts and not being able to be killed like a normal vampire. I'll probably keep reading the series off and on but I have many others ahead of it right now.

    A serial killer is loose in the Twin Cities, murdering tall, blonde women, and Betsy is vaguely interested in stopping him. But, mostly, she’s interested in hanging out with her vampire pals and getting to know her long-lost devil-spawn sister, and helping Jessica get a date. Which is fun to read about, but really, really fluffy and insubstantial. Which is just what a person needs sometimes. Frothy funny fiction.

    3 stars for book 4. Not much going on in this one. Average story not much action. Beginning books Betsy avoiding Eric now Eric avoiding Betsy. This is Book 4 and we are still reading about a wedding, maybe? Since I like book series and already purchased books 5-6-7-8-9. I'll continue onto book 5.

    Really liked this one. The plot was there and there wasn't too much superfluous paranormal stuff going one. I think it was the wedding planning. How could there be anything less normal than wedding planning which only the bride cares about?

    The author believes kidnapping and rape to be romantic and sexy methods of gaining a spouse. Any reasonable person will forgo this author so they don't throw up from the message that abuse and sexual assault are ways to show you care.

    I really like this series. So light and airy a vampire story. Vampires are still homicidal (and evil some of the time). But never let it be said being "undead" stopped you from going to the sales. LOL!
