Book Review~ The Vampire's Mail Order Bride





Title: The Vampire's Mail Order Bride
Author: Kristen Painter
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: 370 Pages
Purchase: Amazon









The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. 

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. 


After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn’t know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire. 


Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the arranged set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. In thirty days, whatever bridezilla shows up at his door will be escorted right back out. His past means love is no longer an option. Not if the woman’s going to have a future. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.

Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...
All of my favorite tropes in one book? Yes please! There's mail order brides, small town with a theme, running from a secret, kidnapping, and a town full of interesting characters. I am all about that. All of it. Oh, vampires, there are vampires too.

There are enough things to keep it serious that it isn't completely over the top goofy. Like some serious fears and past hurts, things like that. But overall, this was such a fun book! It's very light and fluffy. It's an enjoyable, humorous read. I want to read all of Painter's work now after this one! She has a real talent. The story flowed well and the characters were well developed. This is a great concept and I want to read more!
