One Grave at a Time Review

One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost 
5 Stars
Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving-leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. (from Shelfari)
This is a great continuation of the series.  Cat has definitely matured and is confident in her own skin.  While there were some slow moments, this book is full of action and had my emotions going all over the place.  I love a book that can make me laugh, cry and want to yell. It makes it seem more real to me.  The villain is probably the most disgusting and despicable yet. I definitely got the heebie-jeebies.  
My one complaint is that I feel like some of the characters were pushed to the side during the story, even though they had important roles in this installation.  I found myself forgetting they were even part of the story. So I would have liked to have seen more cohesiveness there.  There are lots of questions that I'm hoping will be answered in the 7th book.

I'm about half way through. They're in Memphis right now, my current stompin' grounds. I don't think I'll ever to to the drive-in off Summer feeling the same again. A little fear the vampires and ghouls are lurking around the corner (have you ever had to walk to the bathrooms there? That's a horror movie in it's self. Yikes!).

Is that the drive-in I've been to before? It was super horror flick material.
