TALL, DARK & DEAD - Tate Hallaway


TALL,DARK & DEAD comes across as a chick-lit book if one were a judge-a-book-by-its-cover type. I am more of a pick-a-book-by-its-title type a catchy title will almost always grab my attention.Especially when TALL,DARK & DEAD is followed by the catch line....Nobody's Perfect....
Garnet has moved to Madison Wisconsin after finding a group of witch hunters are on her trail. A vampire walks into her magic shop looking for ingredients. But no, he can't be a vampire, he's walking around in daylight. Garnet is intrigued. As is Lilith, the goddess witch Garnet channeled and keeps inside her after the death of her coven at the hands of the witch hunters.
This is a good story, a sort of in between light and grim paranormal. Garnet is my favorite. She is tough, but still vulnerable at times. Sebastian makes for an intriguing vampire. I'd like to see more of Garnet's friend, Izzy, who takes pretty much all she witnesses in her stride. William is a confused sweet soul and deserves more book time.

I would have thought ChickLit too! I've read some that I liked, but I'm not too heavy into that genre. This one sounds good though.

J Kaye: It is good. Not too heavy duty paranormal and not too heavy duty chick lit..nice in between.

I just checked. Our library has this one as well as "Many Bloody Returns" and "Dead Sexy". Have you had a chance to read those yet?

I am just cluttering up your comment box, but I wanted to tell you I emailed the author of THE DOLLMAKER to see if she wanted to lead the group in the discussion, but no reponse. I didn't get the idea of doing this until Keith came on the scene.

It'd be totally cool if she did and I think we'd get more members to participate. This might be something to do more of in the future with authors.

I probably wouldn't have read this because of the cover, but the title is delightful.
