    I was very disappointed in this book. I didn't realize it was about vampires until I was well into it. I kept hoping that there would be some biblical content or a lesson that would make me more Christ-like but there was very little. I trusted a Christian book company to give me something that would glorify God, not about vampires sucking the life blood out of someone. I agree that it's also about alcoholism and the family problems that go with it but it seems to be more in line with what the world considers sensational.

    This review was written for Thirsty: A Novel - eBook.
    Nina is a recovering alcoholic that isn't having the best time recovering. Wanting to make amends with her ex-husband, Hunt, and her two children, she does her time in rehab and moves back to her childhood town. Taking her daughter Meg with her, Nina begins to clean up her life in earnest.

    But something that has been alive for 250 years is running rampant in the Ozarks. With a murderer on the loose, and her sister Jill (the town sheriff) trying to solve the cases in record time, they are all in danger. Struggling to stay sober from her addiction, and trying be be strong for Meg, Nina is unaware that her fight against dark forces may not be with herself after all. Will she realize the truth in time? Or is she going to loose her family despite her efforts to clean up her life?

    When I plucked this book from my shelf, I had no idea what I was getting into. It wasn't until I was well into the story that I realized what was really going on. While this was the tamest vampire story I have ever read, the novel was redeemed in the story of Nina. I didn't see the need for the vampire twist in the book, nor did I care for that aspect of the story, but I was drawn to Nina, her family, and her childhood memories.

    Despite half a dozen typos, "Thirsty" is one of the BEST novels I have ever read!! It totally drew me in; I could not put it down! I've just begun reading its sequel, "Tandem". Don't be put off by the vampire theme. There's so much more to this book -- conflict with Nina's teenage daughter, her continued love for her ex-husband, and reconnecting with her parents. It was sad how Markus was trapped in the fire, but he sacrificed his own life for Nina and Meg, so Eden wouldn't kill them. He had the right motivation, but the wrong actions. I would like to have seen him become redeemed. That said, "Thirsty" is a book you can sink your teeth into.

    Interesting how the author compares bloodlust to alcohol addiction. A must read. Good, action packed, edge of your seat story.

    I stop reading the book as soon as I realized it contained information about vampires.
