Lizzie and Tucker are the perfect couple. Although they do not always see things eye to eye, they have a way of somehow managing to meet in the middle and work it out. The family they have created with Tucker’s dad and assorted friends–-both human and not–-is the driving force behind all that they do, and it shows. Of all of their companions, I think I like the government paranoid Lenny the best. He is like the Q of the vampire world, always coming up with the next thing in vampire extermination gear.
Like its predecessor, The Cowboy and the Vampire, Blood and Whiskey is full of action, goofy but lovable characters, and so much humor that your sides will ache by the time you are finished reading. I love that the authors worked in several different races of vampires and gave each a bit of history behind them. Being a huge lover of backstory, having that kind of information enriches the story for me. Also, I always really enjoy the way vampires handle their politics-–it is fascinating and much more amusing than the human version. Blood and Whiskey combines action and emotion with unforgettable characters and an off-kilter sense of humor into one fascinating bronco ride of a story.
