Funny, sexy, bright Milagro de Los Santos doesn’t quite fit in anywhere, but still manages to have fun in her haphazard city life of temp jobs, nightclubbing, and arty boyfriends. She writes political horror stories about zombies and hopes to be published. Then one night, at a book party for her pretentious ex-boyfriend, she meets Oswald, a fabulous man who tells her he’s interested in her writing. A mad kissing session leads to cut lips and an accidental exchange of blood.
Then for the first time in Milagro’s life, she becomes sick and develops strange cravings for raw meat. When her ex-boyfriend kidnaps her, accusing her of being a vampire, Oswald’s family comes to her rescue and hides her away to recover at their wine country estate.
The family thinks she’s a trashy gold-digger. She thinks they’re terrible snobs. Can they learn to tolerate one another long enough to defeat their mutual enemies and make it home for cocktail hour?
Thirty-four-year-old Vivi Tyler is living her nightmare: gay husband, self-harming teenager, melodramatic mother. They’re picking apart her sanity, one stitch at a time. She’s crawling along rock bottom when the arrival of a mysterious package opens a new door to a new country. A desperate Vivi dives headfirst into the quicksand that is Greece—her parents’ birthplace.
But it’s a paradise far from perfect, and instead of the new beginning she covets, Vivi discovers trouble is determined to keep her in its pocket. Soon she’s fighting for her daughter’s life in a Greek hospital, clashing with her Greek relatives, and cobbling together an inadequate cage around her heart, lest she fall for an unavailable man.
Before this story ends, somebody will be dead. And if some people are to be believed, this particular death is a good thing. A blessing, of sorts . . . .
