Sent on an assignment to find the best diner in New York, Pat Wyatt is more than happy to complete it, but not alone. Recruiting her best friend Christina Iglesias to join her, she sets out on her fateful mission, completely oblivious to what lies ahead. When a handsome stranger walks through the doors of the last diner of the day, Pat is not impressed with the striking man, and quickly leaves the restaurant...only to be followed out by the attractive mystery man.
Following a whirlwind of marriage proposals and Hamptons' mansions is the creeping recognition that everyone seems to be afraid of her new husband and that he might not be as perfect as he seems. With everything inside pushing her toward an impossible realization, Pat must decide if she can trust the outlandish instincts she has inside and truly believe her husband, Samuel Satane, is a vampire.
“Graveyard Shifts: A Pat Wyatt Novel” is a captivating piece of fiction that forgoes the traditional love story that is prevalent in so many novels. Pat's story takes readers on a journey of love that happens after marriage, which adds real-world credibility to an otherwise fantastic scenario. Not to be confused with other novels though, Pat's story is more about her strength of character than her reliance on any particular man.
Written for women and men interested in horror fiction and romance, “Graveyard Shifts” is a gripping novel that is easy to pick up and hard to put down. With its sarcastic wit and dark tone, the novel keeps a perfect pace that never lulls. A fun, dramatic, and entertaining read from the very beginning, “Graveyard Shifts” is a wonderful new book that offers a unique take on horror fiction and the ever-popular vampire romance novels everywhere."

I enjoyed Del’s book because it was sarcastic, funny and casual. She does a good job balancing some insight to Pat’s background to make the events seem realistic. It was nice that Pat had a non-traditional back-story to keep the story fresh. And rather than being a wilting flower, Pat stands her ground throughout the story even when facing serious consequences.
My main complaint would be that the story was a little too traditional for my taste. As this genre has become very popular recently, I was not immediately taken by the essentially traditional story of werewolves/vampires. That being said, for folks that have not over dosed with paranormal, I think this will be a great and enjoyable read. I certainly will be reading the other Pat Wyatt books when they come out!
