4.0 out of 5 stars She's baaack! 9 Oct 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Laura Resnick is back with her fourth Esther Diamond mystery. The urban fantasy plot is strong and original, and has at its heart Esther's new off-Broadway gig in 'The Vampyre'. One of this series' strengths is its sense of place. Here 'The Big Apple' is back with some new locations mixed in with familar ones. The characters are likewise well-blended: with all the old favourites and some vibrant new ones. 'Vamparazzi' is a page-turner, pacy and interesting despite the somewhat predictable plot points. The story is dialogue-driven, with quick and witty repartee. Unlike 'Unsympathetic Magic', this is more Com than Rom, with a stagnant relationship between Esther and Lopez. If you're a fan of the series, or an urban fantasy fan who loves to laugh-out-loud, then buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resnick Does it Again! 27 Oct 2011
By Kenja P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've loved all the Esther Diamond series books, but I have to say that Vamparazzi is my favorite so far. Resnick does a great job of researching ancient vampire lore and it shows. I had thought the whole vampire thing to be over and done, but she proves they still have legs as long as the author helps us look at vampires through a new lens.

Resnick also does a great job of integrating and fleshing out current characters in the story, instead of bringing in all new ones to tell the tale. We learn a great deal more about Max and Thack. And of course, she does a great job of continuing the sexual tension between Lopez and Esther. ROWR!

All of the Esther Diamond books have been lighthearted and fun, but this one was laugh out loud funny, taking pokes at our fixation with fame and actors, as well as actors themselves.

I can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost too much fun! 23 Jan 2013
By Cissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The only thing that disappoints me about this book is that now I have only one more Esther novel to read that's been published to date. Woe!

This was an excellent book. It has a lot more of Esther's acting experiences in it, and I thought it was fun to get a glimpse of that part of her life. The basic plotting was well-paced; I called a couple of the plot twists but not all of them (which makes me happy both ways), and some of the scenes were literally laugh-out-loud funny- like the depiction of a really FAILED performance, and a real vamp going on a rant in a wanna-be vamp club and getting told to be more tolerant because "everyone can be a vamp in their own way".

The vamps were... not tedious, and I generally find vamps tedious almost by definition at this point. The author has an interesting and coherent take on them that works well and is less stupid than most.

Well-drawn characters, too! Her co-workers in the play were nicely written and seemed very real (even when absurd). I am finding the mostly-off romance to be getting a bit tedious; I think Lopez needs a good kick. I LOVED learning about Max's "thing" about Lithuanians.

This is probably not the best book to start with, although I think it stands alone OK. However, if you start here, you'll miss a lot that the previous books brought to the series and the characters. Start with "Disappearing Nightly" or "Doppelgansters".

I also have to give a good thumbs-up to the cover artists- these are GREAT covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devoured in one sitting 4 Dec 2012
By Jennifer Maki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read all of the Esther Diamond novels within days, and Vamparazzi in one sitting. I love the whole series, but this is my favorite to date. It was great to see Esther finally getting to work in her chosen profession, and it went so well yet so horribly wrong at the same time... the balance between the two was very well done. The payoff on Esther's agent was fabulous given the throwaway comments on him in the other books before this one. I just wish that Detective Lopez would finally figure out what is going on all around him!

4.0 out of 5 stars Vamparazzi 19 Oct 2012
By Shannon Yun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. We read it for our book club and I wasn't sure what to expect but I found myself reading late into the night because I couldn't put it down. The main character is refreshingly real, strong with an interesting career as a stage actress. Some of her co-workers are crazy, something we can all identify with. Her hot ex-almost-boyfriend kinda smolders off the page. Yum. And best of all, I laughed-out-loud quite a few times. I'll definitely go back and read Laura Resnick's other books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires? Lithuanians? Say what? 1 Jan 2012
By JaggedWriter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Being an actress wasn't enough.
Fighting evil on the side wasn't enough.
Giving up on the guy you can't stop thinking about - in order to keep him breathing - wasn't enough.

No... Esther just had to add vampires to the mix.

In Vamparazzi, Laura Resnick does a great job of taking us deeper into the world that is Esther Diamond. Not only do we get to really see her in her element, dealing with crazed fans and unreasonable co-stars, we also get a glimps into Max's life. Not the least to say, we finally learn what his problem with Lithuanians is.

This is a story that keeps you guessing at every turn. You'll never be entirely sure who's sucking blood, or who's just sucking up to the Vamparazzi. It's a great read, and the only thing better is knowing the story doesn't end here.
