During the Civil War, Union soldier, John Alden took a musket ball to the gut. As he gasped his final breath, he was turned into a vampire and started life anew in Amber Heights, Missouri. For over one hundred and fifty years, he’s lived a rather solitary life as a vampire Enforcer. 

Young single mother, Joann Clarkson, needs a job and fast. Hoping to be rehired, she returns to Dr. Michaela Blautsauger’s lab prepared to eat a hefty helping of humble pie. She comes to regret that decision when she’s taken hostage. Things look grim but she’ll never stop fighting to escape. Her son needs his mama. 

As an Enforcer, John must hunt down the vampire who kidnapped Joann. In his search, John winds up babysitting her toddler Cody. Changing diapers might be worse than getting staked, but nothing compares to how he feels when both mother and child fall into danger again.

My Rating:  3.5 stars

Diaper Duty Vampire was a romp that I had fun with but did wish for a bit more information, more world building to bring this world to life for me.  When the first book in a series gives me an idea of the good guys vs the bad guys, why there’s a problem between then and why I should care – well, it just lets me fall into that world easier.  That’s a personal preference mainly because I felt like I missed a prequel that would have answered those things for me.

John and Joann were engaging together, but Cody stole this show completely.  If you love laugh out loud moments, then you’ll find some classics in this story.  In the end, I had fun with Diaper Duty Vampire and I’m looking forward to the next story in the series.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
