Review of Yesterday's Daughter

Yesterday's Daughter
Sallie Lundy-Frommer
Ebook Edition

   Grace Stone is a lonely woman who knows she is different from other people. Her only problem, she doesn't know what or who she really is. She grew up in the foster care system where she was abused. As a teen, she finally escaped and survived on her wits. Being quite intelligent, she furthered her education and took a job working in the morgue at the local hospital. Even there she did not truly fit in.
   Malachi, a guardian of the vampire community, has been searching for Grace for decades. Sapphira, her true name, was named as his life mate. When he finds her, he must convince her of what she is and that she belongs with him. To complicate matters, evil is hiding in the shadows and is determined to interrupt their destiny.
   Yesterday's Daughter is an emotionally charged romance filled with mystery, intrigue, kidnapping, murder and betrayal on numerous fronts. This is not your average vampire story with lots of neck biting and falling into bed. There is mounting passion with a storyline that allows you to use your own imagination without full blown bedroom scenes. The story is well written and keeps the reader on the edge. The author has no problem keeping the reader interested and focused. Despite the intense love story between Sapphira and Malachi, there is lots of action, adventure and intrigue. Even if you are not a fan of vampires, this story is so off the beaten path of a normal vampire romance, you most certainly would still enjoy the read. I highly recommend it. 
   I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy for reading and reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in any way except for receiving the book to review.

I give Yesterday's Daughter 4.5 out of 5 stars
