I'm a fan of Sue Ann Jaffarian's other mystery series, but don't tend to read vampire stories so wasn't sure what I would think, but I loved this whodunnit, which delves into the world of vampires and vampire envy. Madison Rose finds herself shocked to discover that vampires are real, and that she almost died because of them. She goes to live with her new vampire "grandparents," who wind up becoming the only family she has, only to become the target of those who think if they kill her, they are I'm a fan of Sue Ann Jaffarian's other mystery series, but don't tend to read vampire stories so wasn't sure what I would think, but I loved this whodunnit, which delves into the world of vampires and vampire envy.
She goes to live with her new vampire "grandparents," who wind up becoming the only family she has, only to become the target of those who think if they kill her, they are on the fast track to permanent as opposed to retractable fangs. Jaffarian sends up vampire envy while introducing a whole new cast of characters, including a vampire council, with her own twist on the genre. She manages to make this a believable world, as she did with Ghost a la Mode, and Madison is an engaging heroine who is by turns wary and curious about the undercover community that takes her in.
If you're a Jaffarian fan, you'll definitely want to check this out, and if you're a newcomer to her work, you'll enjoy the sly humor as well as the covens, clubs and coffins that populate Murder in Vein. Jun 26, Michael Mallory rated it really liked it. Here the vampires aren't a sub-culture, they're almost like hidden royalty, taking mortal justice into their own hands when the situation demands it.
Sue Ann Jaffarian has written cross-genre mystery that genuinely does justice to both genres, presenting vampires that are alternately charming and terrifying, and a heroine who is believable as she navigates the "real" world, which has done her no favors "Murder in Vein" takes a well-used theme--vampires among us--and puts a whole new twist on it. Sue Ann Jaffarian has written cross-genre mystery that genuinely does justice to both genres, presenting vampires that are alternately charming and terrifying, and a heroine who is believable as she navigates the "real" world, which has done her no favors to date, and the unsuspected vampire world.
There's quite a bit of expository detail on the vampire culture in the first third of the book, and Jaffarian leaves few questions about how they can live in modern society unanswered, but that serves to create a sense of reality amidst the unreal. One note: the series subtitle, "Fang in Cheek," implies that this is going to be a light-hearted or comedic romp, which it is not.
It has it's moments of irony, but no one should buy this expecting "Love at First Bite. Jan 02, Kallierose rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

I've been reading lots of sci-fi lately and this is much lighter reading by comparison, I guess. Anyway, I enjoyed the characters, and found Madison a lot less annoying and a fair amount smarter than most of the other characters I've been following in the paranormal genre.

I really enjoyed the fact that the author did not feel the need to bludgeon us over the head about how sexy and irresistible and hot the This was a good, rather fluffy read. I really enjoyed the fact that the author did not feel the need to bludgeon us over the head about how sexy and irresistible and hot the vampires were. I've read books lately that make that mistake, and it gets old fast. Sure, they're hot. We get that. But we don't need to read about it every other sentence.
My one quibble was about the identity of the bad guy. This was someone we'd only seen It would have made the mystery a lot more interesting if the villain was someone we'd spent more time with. That one thing aside, I quite enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one in the series. I read Jaffarian's Too Big to Miss and like it well enough. So, I gave another of her series a try. This one was probably somewhere in the middle. Madison is a "heroine" that's totally TSTL. She continually makes dumb decisions. To her benefit, though, these vampires are making plenty of dumb decisions too.
She ends up being bit against her will and later equates it to her repeated rape as a child. Pretty horrific. So, she made a bad decision. With the advice, "don't get bit this time. She knows she's going to a super seedy area. She leaves a note saying she's going on an errand, but that's it. Sep 14, Naomi Ruth rated it liked it Shelves: adult-fiction. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about this book. There were some rough passages, and I don't think it was the best book ever written. There were some cliches and some moments where I wasn't sure if the emotions were described well I blame this on Plato, since I read this right after discussing Book X of The Republic.
But I actually really liked it. I liked the characters and the description of place. I liked that the main girl I'm blanking on her name It's in the title, Madison At first I wasn't sure how I felt about this book.
Murder in Vein (A Madison Rose Vampire Mystery, #1)
It's in the title, Madison was around two sexy men but she kept up her boundaries and said: "No. I'm good. I don't know. I really felt connected to Madison by the end. I kinda' want to read more. It might have started out a little bit rough, but by the end I was definitely hooked. Aug 17, Cherie Phillips rated it it was amazing. I loved this story it was another I just stumbled across while looking for something to read between my regular series. I was hooked within a couple of pages, the heroine Madison is a strong character who has had a difficult life but does not expect handouts and I liked her a lot.
It's a great mystery read that just happens to involve vampires but they are only a part in the story which was refreshing for a change. I would in no way call this a romance because it is not but there are some sexual I loved this story it was another I just stumbled across while looking for something to read between my regular series. I would in no way call this a romance because it is not but there are some sexually charged moments and there is some feeling between Madison and two of the male vampires in the vampire council Sammual their leader and other called Collin, so I look forward to seeing if any of this will develop or if it's just Madisons curosity about the bite.
Feb 06, Deborah Lee rated it liked it. Madison Rose discovers the world of vampires in this, the first of the "Fang in Cheek" series. Despite the series title, this is not a light-hearted vampire romp. The somewhat dark tale is an innovative twist on a common themethe hidden, underworld of vampires. At times, the plot seemed to bog down and the narrative description of people and places became too detailed. But this first book laid out an interesting premise and an intriguing set of characters, with the stage set for the next book Madison Rose discovers the world of vampires in this, the first of the "Fang in Cheek" series.

Sep 16, Holly rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery , vampires. Madison's words and actions are all over the place. One minute she's a blushing, embarrassed, naive girl, and the next minute she's bitch slapping an ancient vampire and threatening to stake her. Madison's character is completely unpredictable — and in a head-shaking way, not in an interesting way. The same holds true for the supporting characters. In her interior monologues, Madison frequently points out that vampires are violent and unpredictable creatures, but when they are part of a series, the reader needs to begin to understand their emotions and motivations so that their actions have some meaning — some context.
The characterization is so bumpy that it definitely interferes with my enjoyment of the series. The plots are O. But the ending of book 2 was pretty lame. I can't go into details without spoiling the story, but I can say that when the otherwise intelligent vamps foolishly allow Madison to go off on her own for the climactic scene, this reader was muttering, "Oh no, no way!
