Sunshine by Robin McKinley

For Francine...
Rae, nicknamed Sunshine by her stepfather, is the baker at her family’s coffeehouse. She’s happy getting up at 4 am to make cinnamon rolls for the breakfast rush, and dealing with people and food all day. But one evening she needed somewhere she could be alone for a little while, and there hadn’t been any trouble out at the lake for years. She never thought of vampires. Until they found her.
This book was recommended by Coralyn after my life with Stephanie Meyer. At first I couldn't get passed Chapter 1. I couldn't identify with the character and I didn't really agree much with the decisions that she made. The writing still was abit disorienting. The bakery part and the whole location of the story was a bit hard to imagine. Plus I was still in the process of separating myself from the Twilight books and at that time I feel like there was no other book that can get passed it. But when "Rae" or Sunshine got kidnapped when she get all sentimental and went to her grandma's deserted cabin by oh whatdya know vampires. Then I started getting interested. Not solely because there is a vampire involved in the story but because I am new on the whole "transmutter" thing. And this is actually kind of nice because from all the vamp books that I read the vampire Constatine in this book isn't the drop dead gorgeous kind. I will not give out any spoilers, just give the book a chance.
