What's the Deal Dreadful? Review and Giveaway of VV Inn Book 1: Vampire Vacation


   Hello Lovelies,
      I am back with a review of  Vampire Vacation: VV Inn Book 1 by CJ Ellison. I am an avid reader and usually a traditionalist when it comes to books so I was a little hesitant when I was approached to do a review of another ebook. However, since I usually read Urban Fantasy I figured that I would give it a go. Now, I will state that this is an ADULT Urban Fantasy so you probably don't want your 13 year old reading this book since there are a number of erotic sex scenes which are well written however not for the young or those who don't like detailed scenes. The story is set in an inn north of the Arctic Circle which is both remote and an ideal getaway for the vampire guests that stay there. The main character, Vivian is a sensuous vampire who is much older than she lets on, stumbles upon a dead body while making the last minute rounds of the inn before a new batch of guests arrive. She and her bonded mate, a human named Rafe, have to deal with not only trying to figure out who the murderer is but also how to deal with new guest that are arriving at any minute. 
    The relationship between both Vivian and Rafe is nice combination of  bold and sexy as well as playful and sweet. Vivian is dipping with sensuality and received a great number of advances she always reminds those that she is happily married. The mystery only gets deeper when one of the guest wishes to join Vivian's family in more permanent fashion and Vivian must also use her gift of thought projection and reading the thoughts of others to figure out not only who murderer is but as well as facing a portion of her past.
    The mystery had several twists and turns through out and didn't disappoint me. I enjoyed the read as well as I really liked the character development and the relationships between the characters had with one another. However, I did find that there was portions of the story which lacked some detail and others that had too much. It is a hard things to balance between the two especially with a this being the writer's first novel. I am looking forward to what CJ Ellison has in store for both Rafe and Vivian in the next book!
