A Vampire Christmas is next up in the novellas of the Cassandra Bick series. I’m working my way through them as I (impatiently) bide my time for the next release. These novellas I filling my feening need for more and allowing me to get to know the characters on a more personal level without all the Holy Batman! crisis’s.
The holidays are not a good time for Cassandra. Having lost all her family and childhood friends, she finds herself always alone. To make up for her pain, Cassandra volunteers at a homeless shelter. There she learns that there is a rogue vampire attacking the homeless. Knowing this has got to stop, she seeks help from Laclos. Of course, we are talking about Laclos here, the vain flirt, but even he agrees it must stop so he gives her a hand.
Just like the last novella, I found A Vampire Christmas to be funny and yet sad. Cassandra has lost a lot in her life and feels the pain of loneliness. I do commend her for helping out at a shelter instead of wallowing in her own world of pain. Laclos, of course, is ever the outrageous flirt…this time covered in glitter! Now that’s funny right there! The two together, with her “No stop asking” and him “But you may say yes one day” dialogs, are always good for a laugh. And it being Christmas Laclos offers her up a gift.. Well if you consider a gift of him volunteering to lay under the tree and letting her unwrap him. Oh Laclos, the man just doesn’t take no for an answer. They do eventually go after the rogue vampire, which turned out to be a surprise. Eventually Cassandra does decide on what to do for Christmas, that finally tidbit gave me quite the warm fuzzies.
Normally, I am not a fan of Christmas stories. I find them way too sappy, however, this was a Cassandra Bick story and I couldn’t pass it up. Glad I didn’t because while it didn’t have the huge WOW factor all the bigger books in the series have, it still gave me a chuckle. A must read for sure!
