Dead over Heels
For years now, Ms. Davidson has created feisty, flakey, fun heroines who charm her readers and escort them to worlds that are just a bit wider than our own. In this charming anthology, we get to "daytrip" to three of them for the price of one. Though Fred is not the heroine of the Survivors, one of her fellow mermaids finds a delightful romance with a conceited newsman she rescues. It may not be the Little Mermaid, but it's definitely more than a splash of fun. If you adore the Wyndham Werewolves, then go with one as she tries Speed Dating, Werewolf style, in an effort to wed before she's thirty. However, my personal favorite brings us to Betsy, the Undead Vampire Queen, as she and Sinclair go on their honeymoon in Undead and Wed, and try to make peace with Betsy's best friend's boyfriend who hates their guts. Something sinister is going on that will force enemies to work together, but it really does a number on romance. The best part of all though is the tantalizing taste of the next Undead book at the end. I can hardly wait.
