I am Dreaming of an Undead Christmas

It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow. And then there's the small matter of the handsome, frustrating vampire who keeps appearing in Gigi's peripheral vision, then disappearing before she can talk to him. Can the Scanlon sisters negotiate romantic problems, vampire politics, and Christmas cookie disasters and enjoy a relatively normal holiday?

My Impressions: 

I loved this book, all the way until the end when it cut off unexpectedly. I was left feeling very dissatisfied.  It was like the book was just getting going, really picking up pace and then BAM, nothing. The story itself was great. Very funny,snarky,  laugh out loud,comical happenings that make you shake your head. Great character development. The whole time I was reading I could picture the  characters, their style, personality, etc. I adored all the tongue n cheek humor and I could easily see a sister working this hard to give her "family" the best Christmas ever since so much has changed between them.

Overall I give this book 3 stars, but would definitely warn people about the abrupt ending,
