Undead and Unpopular by MaryJanice Davidson

Betsy, the Vampire Queen, has a lot on her plate with her upcoming wedding, her 31st birthday (the 1 year anniversary of her rebirth as a vampire), and a diplomatic visit from a group of powerful European vampires. To make things worse, her best friend Jessica has been really grouchy lately and Betsy herself hasn't exactly been a ray of sunshine since she decided to go cold turkey and stop drinking blood. What else could go wrong? Oh yeah, her life story is being published as a work of fiction and there's a zombie in the attic.

Davidson has jammed a lot of happenings into a short book. The pace moves quickly, but many things aren't resolved (or are resolved too easily). It's better than the last book in the series which was little more than filler, but again it seems like it's just setting up for the next in the series. How many more books will there be before the wedding? It's worth reading (Betsy's lisp returns!) but the next book better have more substance or I'm going to lose my patience with the series.
