Description from Goodreads.com: "The sun's not the only thing that's too hot to handle.
I consider myself a vampire connoisseur as I love all things vampire and most books about them. I liked that the vampires in the novel where more modern vampires in that they are able to walk in the sunlight with no problem and they can be around humans with minimal issue. However, the paranormal aspect seemed underplayed and it felt like the fact that some of the characters are vampires only comes up when someone is being murdered. Similarly the relationship between the hero and heroine seemed tense and forced to me. The stressful situation that they are involved in added to the tension which causes the relationship aspect of the novel to not be as strong as it could be in my opinion. Despite these things Day Shift is an enjoyable novel that I would recommend because the plot was very interesting and well executed. I give the novel a 3.5 out of 5 stars because it was good but could have been better.
