Samantha is smart and funny and you can see why she would draw Mortimer even though she is on the skinny side. It is fun to watch as Mortimer rediscovers life’s passions; he goes from cranky and boring to warm and funny. The banter between the vampire men and the sister is genuinely funny and you will find yourself laughing. The book can drag in spots but for the most part is a quick and funny read.
