I really enjoy her writing style.. But I was not thrilled with this particular story. I didn't hate it by no means.. I blame myself, really.. I've gotten kind of sick of these intense vampire stories (yet I have another vampire story checked out from the library right now!)
I really loved the characters and the relationships in the story.. Heather Graham has such an amazing way to really suck you in (no that's not a vampire reference lol) to her stories and characters lives..
Though what should have been a shocking surprise at the end I figured out within the first few chapters LOL...It didn't really ruin it for me though.. I think I just love her writing so much that I'm starting to think her way. ;)
Description from the publisher:
When a fortune-teller shows bridesmaid Lauren Crow an omen of her gruesome death, she and her friends laugh it off as cheesy theatrics—until women begin disappearing in the night.
Even as the streets become more dangerous, Lauren finds herself lusting after a man who is himself dangerous— and quite possibly crazy. Mark Davidson prowls the city by night armed with crosses and holy water, in search of vampires, whose existence, he insists, is real. He is as irresistibly drawn to Lauren as she is to him, and not only because she's the image of his murdered fiancée. But Mark's frightening obsession with finding his lover's killer merely hides a bitter vendetta that cuts deeper than grief over a lost love.
As Lauren wrestles with desire and disbelief, sinister shadows lengthen over New Orleans, threatening her friends and foretelling a battle that may spell the end of the city's uneasy truce between the living and the undead.
