Tandem by Tracey Bateman

This is my first book to review for Water Brook’s Blogging for Books program. I chose it because it sounded interesting with a plot including lost love and of course, murder. What I didn’t realize is that it is about vampires. Yes, a Christian fiction book about vampires. Now I know vampires are all the rage right now but I am just not “into” them. So I was a bit disappointed when I realized it had a vampire storyline but I decided to give it a try anyway.I also didn’t realize that this was the second book in a series but that did not make too much of a difference to the overall story – it just took me a minute to catch up with who was who.

Lauryn is a young woman who runs her families auction house business while caring for her father who has Alzheimer’s disease. The current estate she is working on is full of priceless antiques and secrets. Some of the items in the estate draw Amede Dastillion from her New Orleans home in hopes of finding her long-estranged sister, Eden. When Amede arrives she finds that her sister is being held captive and someone is killing deer and humans in ritualistic killings.

Overall, my reaction to this book is, “eh.” I could take it or leave it. The plot was good and I probably would have really enjoyed it if I enjoyed reading about vampires. Lauryn, who was the main character (and not a vampire), was a very believable character and you could relate to her struggles of being her own person, taking care of her father and running a business.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

    Just curious… how did Christian viewpoint approach the topic of vampires?

    Yeah, I think the “Christian” part of the book was that one character was a missionary at home on furlough. But that didn’t seem to keep him from pursuing a relationship with a non-believer. But to be fair, I think this is the second book in a series so maybe the “Christian” part is better developed in the following books.
