Book Review: Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta


  • Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Pocket (July 4, 2006)
Latina Ivy League grad Milagro de Los Santos can't find her place in the world or a man to go with it. Then one night, at a book party for her pretentious ex-boyfriend, she meets an oddly attractive man. After she is bitten while kissing him, she falls ill and is squirreled away to his family's estate to recover. Vampires don't exist in this day and age -- or do they? As Milagro falls for a fabulously inappropriate man, she finds herself caught between a family who has accepted her as one of their own and a shady organization that refuses to let the undead live and love in peace.

This book was definitely a fun and witty read. Action, drama, romance, humor, seriously awkward situations....you name it. I thought it was interesting how the character interactions evolved. Some relationships were a bit unexpected. On the other hand, there was some predictability as well but I suppose it kept things grounded. Milagro is a Latina and it shows in her character which I just love and it will be fun to read more about her in the rest of this series.

4/5

I won this book in a giveaway. My opinions are my own and no one elses.
