My Blood Runs Blue by Stacy Eaton



Courtesy of Goodreads:  Officer Kristin Greene has always felt that something was missing from her life. Although her job with the Fawn Hollow Township Police Department keeps her busy, she still feels like there is something else out there for her.

She soon finds herself investigating a homicide where a young woman has had her throat ripped out. When she has to give the death notification to the family, her investigative nature comes out fast and strong when the parents seem too accepting of their daughter's death and make comments that just don't fit.

When the family requests the assistance of the VMF Securities, Kristin is confused that they would think a security company could assist with the murder investigation. When Julian and Alexander arrive she quickly finds herself being pulled into a love triangle that has been going on longer then she has been alive. Why do they look at her as if they know her? And why do they keep talking about Calista?

Join Kristin as she fights to learn the truth about the recent murder, the seductive and blood drinking men that have entered into her life and the rear truth about herself.


This is the debut novel by Stacy Eaton and it is about a police officer, Kristin Greene, and the two vampires that fell in love with her long ago.  

I won this book in Ms. Eaton’s  birthday giveaway last month and was excited to try out a new author!  She built a fast paced story that I was able and more than willing to read in one sitting.   This novel was told in the first person point of view but changed based on chapter between Kristin, Julian, and Alexander.  I kind of liked this as it was different from the normal adult third person point of view.

The only criticism/wish I had was for the story to have been longer so there was more time to build attachment to all of the main characters.  The only one I felt really invested in was Julian.  His emotions seemed strong and focused.  I appreciated his straightforward attitude at going after what he felt was his.  He totally made me swoon.  I wanted to love Alexander as he was the one left in the dust and the underdog, but I just couldn’t root for him.  Kristin just seemed to not know what she wanted or who her mate really should be.  Even through the end of the story, I feel as if there is confusion in her eyes and maybe that will be ironed out in future books as I hear this is the beginning of a series.

Personally I was rooting for a different ending, but overall I enjoyed the pace and storyline.  I give it three and a half out of five stars!  Good debut and I hope to read more from Stacy Eaton soon!
