4 stars – It was really good

In Nocturne Falls, Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year. Tourists all think it’s for show but the vampires, witches, and gargoyles are actually all real. After Delaney James sees her mobster boss murder someone she knows she needs to hide fast. She assumes the identity of a mail order bride and finds herself in Nocturne Falls, with vampire Hugh Ellingham. 

This is such a light-hearted and fun read. I love the town of Nocturne Falls and its inhabitants. I can always count on Kristen Painter to write light-hearted romances with unique settings! Also can I move to Nocturne Falls, Halloween is my favorite. 

Now to the actual story. Delany was a fun heroine. She wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself which I enjoyed. I also loved all her chocolate facts. Hugh was a protective vampire but also a bit geeky. He has a lab that he experiments in but also isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Delany and Hugh’s relationship was an enjoyable one. This is an instant love relationship though with them admitting their feelings within just a few weeks of knowing each other. 

Overall, this was a fun, light-hearted, paranormal romance set in a unique town. I am looking forward to rereading the rest of the series, especially since I don’t remember a lot of the characters anymore.
