Review by: Tiger Lily

When the beautiful and wealthy Julia approached Lizzy with the offer to switch bodies and lives with her, Lizzy accepted, though skeptical. When it worked, Lizzy thought she had hit the jackpot—until she found out she was not only a vampire who was the queen of a vampire council which was in the middle of a war, and also married to a husband who hated her, she knew she had bitten off more than she could chew.

Over My Undead Body is Freaky Friday meets Beverly Hillbillies with fangs.

What happens when you switch bodies with a female vampire? What happens when you find out you are attracted to her vampire husband? What about if you have to immerse yourself in a war between vampire factions you didn’t even know existed? Well, read Over My Dead Body and find out what happens next.

Ms. Cairo writes an interesting novella. Her take on the vampire genre is unique and fun. Julia ran from her duties as a vampire leader in order to be with her human mate. She allows Lizzy to inhabit her body and the issues that come with being Julia.

I liked how Lizzy fell into the lifestyle. She didn’t understand, but she also didn’t shrink from her duties. She took what she wanted without regret. I liked how her sense of adventure got her into trouble as well. Some of us act first and think later and this made Lizzy relatable to the reader.

Billy made a great hero in that he knew what he wanted, but he almost came off as gruff when he didn’t need to. But he did personify the alpha male.

Billy and Lizzy needed to fend off the advances of the Chinese faction of vampires who wished to challenge Billy as the leader. I wished more of the actual battle had been part of the story to give Lizzy more of a role as the protector and fighter.

When she and Billy got together and admitted their affection for each other, the reader could feel the love and passion between them, which really made the story more powerful.

If you want a fun vampire novella, then you want to read Over My Dead Body. You don’t want to miss it. I give this novella 3 ½ cherries.
