Review: Midnight Brunch by Marta Acosta

Synopsis: Hip, funny Milagro de los Santos thinks she's finally found love and a home at the     California ranch of fabulous Oswald Grant and his urbane relatives, who have a rare genetic disorder that some call vampirism. But Milagro is bewildered when she's excluded from an ancient and mysterious midnight ceremony whose participants include Oswald's unfriendly parents, a creepy family elder, and Milagro's ex-lover, the powerful and decadent Ian Ducharme. What skeletons are the vampires keeping in their designer closets?
When Milagro's life is threatened by a rogue family member, she flees to the desert to hide. Instead of solitude, she encounters an egomaniacal actor, a partying heiress, a sly tabloid reporter, and a lavish spa full of dark secrets -- all of which might help her find a way home.

Review: Marta Acosta has done it again! In this second installment of Milagro's life, she has a very interesting, fun and fast paced adventure! I absolutely loved it. I just couldn't put it down(except for when the teacher yelled at me for reading it under the table...hehe) Anyways...........this book is the exact opposite of the first book, Happy Hour at Casa Dracula. Instead of it being a really easy light read, it was intense and it made you think more(yes, you have to use your brain lol) There were times in the story when I loved some characters more than others. Like for example, if there were teams(like in Twilight, "Team Edward" or "Team Jacob") I'd be team Ian, not team Oswald. Overall, I LOVED this book :) Another phenomenal book by Marta Acosta! :)
