Can Vampires be Redeemed?
Book Review of Tandem by Tracey Bateman, May 9, 2012 By Mary Russel This review is from: Tandem: A Novel (Paperback) Can Vampires be redeemed? Tandem is a sequel of Thirsty but it isn't necessary to have read it to enjoy this one. I didn't realize this book is about vampires when I agreed to review it or I would not have read it. I'm a bit tired of the vampire craze. I'm glad I didn't know because I would have missed a good book. Tracey Bateman's characters are believable and relatable. My favorite character was Lauryn McBride whose father, now suffering from Alzheimer's, started the family business, an auction house. Lauryn's life revolves around the care of her father and the responsibilities of the auction house. While investigating the antiques from the Chisom estate, she uncovers some ancient secrets that evil forces are determined to remain hidden. The frequent changes in point of view were a bit confusing. Lovers of mystery and suspense will enjoy the compelling twists and turns, if they can suspend their disbelief of vampires. So, can Vampires be redeemed? You'll have to read the book to find out. I received this book free from WaterBrook Press in exchange for my honest review.
