Dinner With a Vampire - Abigail Gibbs I'm hovering between a 2.5 and a 3 star rating. I felt the book was a bit too long - on more then one occasion I lost interest in the story and had to put the book down. The flow just sort of ebbed half-heartedly at times. One big plus was that the vampires actually behaved like vampires and were believably portrayed. All of the characters with the exception of Violet, were developed well. I couldn't connect with Violet, or be sympathetic toward her. Overall, the book is good... Just good. Nothing exceptional for me unfortunately.
