Her life wasn’t all bad until she woke up a vampire.

Sabrina raised a daughter, started her own coffee shop, and bought her dream house in her hometown of New Orleans. If she had to complain about anything, it would be the seventh level of Hell hot flashes that come with being 53 years old. That is until she wakes up as a vampire.

Her body has never been more perky and her hair is a dream. Problems? Several. A vampire shouldn’t have hot flashes, mood swings that rival a rollercoaster ride, and the urge to drop into a dead sleep at 9:00 pm.

There is a God and he goes by the name of Christoph, the king of the New Orleans coven and a vampire who is hotter than her night sweats. Ready to jump his ancient bones, she manages self-control. Barely. When she learns he can cure more than her animalistic urges, she will promise anything.

Enter the misfits. A succubus kicked out of Hell, an old as dirt reaper, a purple dragon whose hiccups light eyebrows on fire, and a cute as can be pooch that’s really a Hellhound. All occupants of the B&B, Fangri-La, and Sabrina’s job is to turn Christoph’s new acquisition into a thriving business. Holy hot flashes, she may have sunk her fangs into more than she can handle.

Title:  A Vampire’s Midlife Crisis
Series:  Misfits of New Orleans #1
Author:  Valerie Twombly
Genre:  Paranormal Women’s Fiction
Released:  September 13, 2022
My Rating:  4.5 stars

I had such a good time with A Vampire’s Midlife Crisis which is the first story in the Misfits of New Orleans series.  If you love a good story full of snark, humor, misfits of all sorts, a touch of romance, and tons of laughter then you’ll feel right at home in this new world.

Everything you’d want to know before picking this one up is found in the cover description.  I loved the small twists to the story that were often unexpected, a heroine who owns her new powers even as she struggles with them, and a cast of characters who bring that extra touch of laughter, often without warning.  Although I have to say that one purple dragon won my heart early on.

A Vampire’s Midlife Crisis is a solid read, with a storyline that kept me engaged enough to have me waiting impatiently for the next book release.  I had fun here, and would not hesitate to recommend this one to any reader who loves PWF, a touch of romance, a puzzle to solve, snarky commentary, and characters who will bring this book to life.
