From one mistaken identity to another, Clair Frankenstein will keep the reader guessing as she attempts to win the Scientific Award of the Decade. Vampires, werewolves, and warlocks are the least of her worries once she meets and begins to lose her heart to the dashingly handsome Ian Huntsley. Be prepared for a fantastical ride and love story that may turn out a little hairy in the end.
Truly awful in a train wreck kind of way- I would compare it to a cross between a Harlequin romance and Piers Anthony's Xanth series (with all of its puns, though at least his are clever) but it wouldn't be fair. This book is much, much worse.
Remarkably funny Minda Webber takes quotes and misquotes from all over the literary world and wraps them into a hilarious romp with vampires, werewolves and warlocks. Well, the vampires and werewolves are real. The warlock turns out to be a closet Julia Childs. I challenge the reader to count all the Beatles lyrics hidden throughout the narrative. If you're serious about your romance, pass this book by. If you like to laugh and reread sentences to make sure you got them right and catch the jokes, don't hesitate.
The problem, Clair realized, was that she was a Frankenstein. Her uncle's fame - he'd created her cousin Frederick from a bunch of spare parts - was a grave matter. Everyone in the family was a success, while all she'd managed was a humiliating misadventure with pigs. But her spirits were rising. The Journal of Scientific Discovery was promising to publish a paper on the Discovery of the Decade, and she had a doozy. She simply had to prove Baron Huntsley - man of distinction, man of renown, man about ton - was a vampire. With his midnight-black hair, soul-piercing eyes and shiny white teeth, what else could he be? Oh yes, the baron wanted a bite of her or she was no scientist. And then there were all those other monsters. You'd never expect so many in 1828 London! Pretty soon she'd expose them all, and on everybody's lips would be....The Remarkable Miss Frankenstein.
