A small town… a plucky heroin, a shiny vampire, and a hunkey Native American rival with a secret.
But all is not as it seems in Lake Woebegotten. Let Harrison Geillor reveal what lies beneath the seemingly placid surface. You”ll Laugh. We promise.
When Bonnie Grayduck relocates from sunny Santa Cruz California to the small town of Lake Woebegotten, Minnesota, to live with her estranged father, chief of the local two-man police department, she thinks she”s leaving her troubles behind. But she soon becomes fascinated by another student – the brooding, beautiful Edwin Scullen, whose reclusive family hides a terrible secret. (Psst: they”re actually vampires. But they”re the kind who don”t eat people, so it”s okay.)
Once Bonnie realizes what her new lover really is, she isn”t afraid. Instead, she sees potential. Because while Bonnie seems to her friends and family to be an ordinary, slightly clumsy, easily-distracted girl, she’s really manipulative, calculating, power hungry, and not above committing murder to get her way – or even just to amuse herself.
This is a love story about monsters… but the vampire isn’t the monster.
Set in the scenic setting of Lake Woebegotten Minnesota, The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten is one of the best “Spoof” novels I have ever read.
I will admit it. I have read the Twilight series and I have seen All the movies. And I honestly like the characters in The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten more than the “original.”
The story centers on Bonnie Greyduck, she is a high school student and as far as I can tell she is a sociopath. The vampire she is interested in is Edward Sullen, only she is determined to be turned and is very capable of getting her way.
I absolutely loved this book. Sorry Stephanie but I really did like this one better than your original.
The characters are interesting, the story flows well and it had a great ending.
The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten is one every vamp fan should read.
