It’s a Wonderful Undead Life by R.E. Mullins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s A Wonderful Undead Life is a paranormal romance set in Amber Heights, Missouri.
It’s Christmas Eve, and Cailey has little to celebrate; she lost her mother in a horrific car accident, then found her husband was cheating on her. Divorced and choosing to spend the holidays alone, Cailey drowns her sorrows in whisky and an old film. Her wishes for an angelic saviour see her staggering drunkenly to a bridge overlooking the river, as she tries to replicate a scene from the movie. But instead of an angel, a vampire appears and bites her.
Vincent Sabriento is seeking to create a half human/ half vampire; this is a forbidden being and one he wants Gabriel Blautsauger to get the blame for. In a territorial war, the Toltec vampires want to discredit the powerful Nosferatu tribe.
Cailey is discovered by Gabe and his siblings. She’ll die unless they turn her into a full vampire. Will it be enough evidence to stop the council turning against Gabe and his family? Will the council believe there is a Toltec threat?
This is a fun, easy read, following popular vampire themes. Ideal for those who enjoy paranormal love stories. It’s book #1 of a series, so a good place to begin, with more romance to follow in the next books.

It’s been a rough couple of years for Cailey Kantor. Facing her first Christmas alone and bad financial news, she prays for an angel to fix her problems. Instead, a sadistic, sociopathic vampire, with the goal of starting a vampire war, attacks her and forces her to drink blood stolen from the Nosferatu Gabriel Blautsauger.
Gabe must complete Cailey’s turning or she will die. In doing so he risks losing his yet unfound soulmate. But something about the lovely mortal speaks to his heart. Once her transformation is complete, he and Cailey find themselves embroiled in a battle that could cost them all they hold dear.
Faced with lies, abduction, and betrayal Cailey wonders if the vampire she is falling fangs over heart for is in it for love or if she’s just a means to stop a war.
