"filled with eccentric characters and takes a unique view of vampirism"
After being turned into a vampire, Milagro De Los Santos is
married to another vampire, Oswald Grant, MD.
Unfortunately, Oswald is
seeking approval from the vampire council, who might have a
agenda, and the council sends Oswald's ex-girlfriend to
couple on vampire marriage rituals. Meanwhile, Milagro
gets a job
ghostwriting for a loopy man, who thinks that he can shape
Ms. Acosta pens a chic lit vampire fiction story,
which is filled
with eccentric characters and takes a unique view of
vampirism. In Ms.
Acosta's world vampirism is a genetic anomaly, which makes
crave blood and have some unique abilities. Unfortunately,
have problems reproducing, and few people survive being
turned into a
vampire. As a result, Milagro is a rather unknown quality
vampires. In order to make her fiance happy and fit into
world, Milagro is trying to fulfill the expectations of
others and be
someone other than her true self. This results in some
situations, which sometimes make Milagro appear silly.
While I found
some of the scenes amusing, many fell short on the humor
scale for me.
Humor is a very individual taste, therefore, many readers
enjoy THE BRIDE OF CASA DRACULA.

Milagro de los Santos is having serious problems planning her wedding to fabulous Oswald Grant, M.D. Her future in-laws loathe her, her dog just died, and Oswald’s family has a genetic anomaly that makes them crave blood. Then her extravagant best friend hijacks the role of wedding coordinator, and the secretive Vampire Council assigns conniving Cornelia Ducharme to guide the couple through the ancient vampire marriage rituals.
To top it all off, Milagro’s career is on the skids. She’s reduced to ghostwriting the memoirs of a loony little man who claims to be a shapeshifter. And why does Cornelia’s decadent, way too attractive brother, Ian, always show up whenever Milagro is away from Oswald?
When a series of accidents interferes with wedding plans, Oswald worries that Milagro is cracking under the pressure. Is she just paranoid, or is a hidden enemy trying to make sure Milagro doesn't wed the undead?
