Family Secrets is book one in the Davenport Manor series by Melissa Zaroski. This book can be read in either the Young Adult version or the Adult version which is the one that I read.Emma Davenport is a vampire and has been for over 200 years. But different than other vampires, she has retained a bit of her humanity and chooses to continue to live at her family’s 200 year old manor, caring for and then having to say good bye to generation after generation of her ancestors, all knowing what she [...]
I loved Family Secrets and I thought that this book had a very intriguing storyline. While I'll admit that I have not read a whole lot of vampire books this one would be very high on the list of my favorite vampire books that I have read. I found it to be a fun, mysterious, and interesting book that had me wanting to continue turning the page to find out what would happen. With most books early on the reader has an idea of how the book will end, as far as who falls in love and ends up together. [...]
What a fun read! I'm a huge paranormal fan, so naturally I enjoy anything with vampires. Much to my delight, Davenport Manor offered a whole new perspective on the existence of female vampires. Instead of a timid little mortal girl who falls for the sexy, brooding vampire, Emma Davenport is the light-hearted, free-spirited vampire protagonist who delights in the presence of not just one but three handsome men (hey, eternity is a LONG time to be monogamous!) - Aidan, her rugged Scottish maker, wh [...]
To sum up my review, when's the next book in this series going to be released?! Family Secretsis the first book in the Davenport Manor series. It lays the groundwork for an amazing story revolving around the historical Davenport Manor and its residents and guests. This book is full of the supernatural, mystery, romance, and plenty of comedic relief.I feel fortunate to have won this book from a First Reads giveaway after reading it and thoroughly enjoying it. The characters are engaging. I much e [...]
What a great debut novel by this author! I got drawn into the story right away. Great plot with a lot of twists and surprises. The tension and romantic connection between Todd and Emma were sizzling. The secondary characters were great and added to the story. I truly enjoyed it and can't wait to read the next book by this author.
*Warning: possible spoilers*This is not your typical innocent flower pining after the well built, brooding alpha male. It's also not your typical vampire novel. This is pretty much the opposite and it's awesome :)Todd Foster is an actor from London who isn't too well known, despite having had a significant amount of work (believe me I feel your pain, Todd LOL). He lands the role of a lifetime in Davenport, IL near the Chicago, USA area and can't believe his luck. The film is shooting at the lege [...]
I received this book for free through a giveaway by the author.This book just wasn't the sort of thing that I'm in to. I was expecting it to be a dark tale but it read more of a chick-lit. The writing was a bit jumpy and while I really enjoyed learning the background of the characters and the setting, it didn't flow well with how it was placed in the story. It was a fun set-up but I would have preferred more description about the characters and the setting.
not a bad book. my oldest son liked it. he is in that kind of stuff.
What a fun read! This book was enjoyable and entertaining--a perfect book for vacation.
