You'll Understand When Your Dead is Book 12 in the popular, bestselling paranormal Broken Heart series...
When vampire Natalie Haltom starts receiving an influx of ghost suitors, she can’t seem to escape their amorous attentions. And with a ghost cow chasing her everywhere in town, she’s having the worst week ever.
Vedere psychic Matthew Dennison has moved to Broken Heart to escape the Vedere legacy and to start a new life as a psychic for the vampire queen. He manages to rescue Natalie from a persistent date-happy spirit by announcing his engagement to the beautiful vampire.
Just another day in Broken Heart with lonely ghosts, zombie dance-offs, spellcasting teenagers, wedding-planning fae, Little People fertility rituals, and maybe, just maybe, a vampire and psychic finding forever love.
Broken Heart, Oklahoma is a town unlike any other with its paranormal citizens and seemingly endless misunderstandings. I've read about the Vampires, Shifters and Fae who live there so it was quite interesting to see Matt, the psychic, move into town as I was curious just how his ability would affect the townsfolk. Well, there's one person in particular who really does notice Matt and that's Natalie but she's a Vampire, and if she sleeps with a male it's a mandatory one hundred years bonding. So yes mutual attraction is there but unfortunately there are quite a few who do love to meddle in town.
Natalie's daughter, Kimmie, wants nothing more than to see her mum find love and happiness and with her two best friends has come up with a plan. They will cast a spell to find Natalie someone who would be perfect for her but things don't quite go according to plan and all manner of strange things start showing up! Ghosts, zombies, demons and even a nasty spectral cow! Natalie is besieged by potential suitors and the very gallant Matt comes to her rescue but then events start moving at an incredible rate (remember those meddling citizens?) leaving Natalie even more confused!
Such a fun packed world. Natalie has reason to avoid men and as her story is told, I was surprised she wasn't bitter but no, she's kind, likable, and very popular with her fellow townsfolk. Matt was probably more of a mystery and I kept waiting for him to get a vision or something because hey, psychic! Whilst that didn't quite happen, he does use his abilities near the end but not quite how I'd imagined. Yes, this is a romance and there's passion but more than that, it's a very humourous read.
You will want to live in Broken Heart because truly there's never a dull moment. I've enjoyed this series since the first book, I'm the Vampire That's Why, but this seemed a little shorter and so is not my favourite but was still an amusing story. I love that family and love are always the base for these stories but it's the laugh out loud antics that really stand out.
I received an arc of this that had some errors which hopefully will be corrected before sale.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
