Review: Halfway to the Grave

Halfway to the Grave
Jeaniene Frost
November 2007
384 pages
Avon Publishing

Synopsis from Goodreads: 

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.
In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Take a half-vampire/half-human, Master Vampire, an irritating mother, and lots of bad guys and you have a great story with Cat and Bones.

This is my first Jeaniene Frost book and I really enjoyed it. I loved the fact that Cat is a kick-ass heroine and stops at nothing to get the job done...even if it means that she goes against the wishes of Bones.

What do I say about Bones......... One of the best Vampires... put the glitter to the side and see what a real vampire is all about. He's strong, determined, witty, charming and can be scary as hell.

I loved that this book had wit and humor, innuendos, lots of action and wasn't overpowered with the romance.

Cat & Bones quickly became a favorite couple. They had the chemistry, the love-hate relationship, the partners in crime all rolled into one. I can't wait to read the next in the series.
