Killing A Vampire
Book 3 in the Sucker Trilogy
Killing A Vampire tells the story of Kate three years after Raising A Vampire. Life seems okay on the surface, but is it really?
Kate comes home one day to find her partner missing. She asks the police for help, but they don’t think there’s foul play at hand until Kate finds a horrifying parcel on her doorstep. The police are now willing to help but can’t due to lack of evidence. Time becomes an issue. The clock is ticking. How far is Kate willing to go to get her loved one back?
Kate thinks she may be the cause for her partner to run off. Against all advice, she follows a man she knows nothing about to try and get her partner back. As she struggles with her current family ties, she has to deal with an arch-enemy of the past.
How tight are Kate’s family bonds, and what is she willing to sacrifice to get what she wants?
Some reviews received:
“A thoroughly enjoyable tale.”
“A fun, engaging read with a fantastic mix of crime, romance, and paranormal characters.”
“I enjoyed following the interaction among family members, the twists and turns, and the humor.”
“This is an exciting read that follows the characters from Book 1 and 2 into a settled life until all hell breaks loose.”
“What I REALLY like is Jacky’s ability to shrug off some of the genre conventions and create something that’s not cliché at all.”
This story was written differently from Books 1 & 2. The first two novels were written ‘as a pantser, not a plotter,’ i.e. I didn’t know where the story was going until I put pen to paper. This story, however, was plotted. I knew what I wanted to write, and where I was going. The good thing about writing this way is that I didn’t have to stress about what to write next. It did take the fun out of it a little as I wasn’t surprised by my characters anymore, so I don’t think I’ll write this way again.
I did love writing about Tom. He was my driving force. His ‘romantic speech’ got me terribly stuck, though. I must have re-written it a dozen times. It made me realize I’m a very down-to-earth kinda woman 😀 .
I feel great about finishing this book, because it means I have accomplished writing a trilogy which I never thought I would, ever. I am so very proud of it. On the other hand, I am sad to have to leave my characters behind. For the last three years, they have been a great part of my life. I will miss them terribly.
