It's been a year since Milagro de los Santos's boyfriend,
Oswald Grant, infected her with his genetic disorder, also
known as vampirism, by kissing her. Now fully recovered
from the ordeal, Milagro thinks she's found the love of
her life in Oswald. Only thing keeping her from being
fully content with the relationship is that he, along with
the rest of his family, are keeping secrets about
themselves from her. An incredibly frightful ceremony that
she was not suppose to witness has Milagro looking at the
Grant family in a whole new light.
Thinking to get away for a bit, Milagro leaves for a
friends wedding early, only to be attacked by a vampire.
When an offer to redo a screenplay while staying at a
lavish desert spa comes her way, Milagro jumps at the
chance to get away and have some time to think. What she
finds instead is an egotistical has been actor who
blackmails her into working for him, a tabloid reporter
who makes her the star of his paper and a strange spa with
many secrets. To top it all off, vampires have started
showing up at the spa and Milagro's determined to get to
the bottom of the mystery surrounding their reasons for
being there. What happens when she discovers she's what
Marta Acosta returns to her quirky vampire world with
MIDNIGHT BRUNCH. Milagro is the type of character you wish
you knew in real life. She's fun, flighty, unpredictable,
a mecca for trouble and the type of girl you want to hang
out with on a regular bases. I found myself feeling
offended on her behalf many times when it came to the way
the Grant family treated her. The secondary characters had
me rolling with laughter and the books unpredictability
had me glued to the pages. A hilarious novel with plenty
of colorful characters; MIDNIGHT BRUNCH will make you an
instant Marta Acosta fan.
What's a girl to do when she discovers she's the main
course on the menu?
Hip, funny Milagro de los Santos thinks she's finally found
love and a home at the California ranch of fabulous Oswald
Grant and his urbane relatives, who have a rare genetic
disorder that some call vampirism. But Milagro is bewildered
when she's excluded from an ancient and mysterious midnight
ceremony whose participants include Oswald's unfriendly
parents, a creepy family elder, and Milagro's ex-lover, the
powerful and decadent Ian Ducharme. What skeletons are the
vampires keeping in their designer closets?
When Milagro's life is threatened by a rogue family member,
she flees to the desert to hide. Instead of solitude, she
encounters an egomaniacal actor, a partying heiress, a sly
tabloid reporter, and a lavish spa full of dark secrets --
all of which might help her find a way home.
