Loved this new take on the life of a vampire. The story and narration were both excellent. I highly recommend it. My only gripe is the length of the book (short). I didn't mind buying it on special but I did not, and probably won't, pay the usual asking price for the rest of the books in the series. It was good but not good enough to justify the expense. Audible - please put the rest of the books on special or lower the regular price.
i loved listening to it while at work
carrying away of the ups man
made me laugh at times
Yes. I liked the author's fresh approach and imaginative employment of a vampire's abilities together with some of the drawbacks. Just how would you cope with being a single parent of a non-vampire child in this situation?
The leap from a tall building was a suspenseful moment.
This is one top-class reader. She copes with the author's eccentric grammar without missing a beat, and conveys the emotions of the characters impeccably. I'd enjoy listening to her again.
It's a possibility, after all, 'Moonlight' was a very entertaining series.
I'll be interested in seeing this writer develop.
Books have replaced TV in my life.
Nothing close the the Outlander series - but then it was good enough that I had to quickly finish the series. It was a great find from the sale to try out a first book in a series, This is one probably would not stopped to view.
All the way through I had to find out what happens to this wife and mother - trying to keep up with her daily schedule - after being turned into a vampire.
All the way through I had to find out what happens to this wife and mother - trying to keep up with her daily schedule - after being turned into a vampire. And I must say very much liked her client - the large attorney.
Yes - but then as quickly as it was finished I went to Amazon and downloaded the rest of the series to my Kindle.
I cannot wait for the next book.

If you are looking for an exciting Vampire Series, this one is very entertaining. I enjoyed them all. The narrator did a great job.
A married vampire with kids. Talk about your really screwed up relationships. However she's a good mom, and really tries. The story is really an interesting one and this is just book one of a series. I really did enjoy the story and narration by Dina Pearlman. Not that long of a listen, but it keeps moving. I'm going to try the next book in the series to see if J.R. Rain can keep up the interest and mystery.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I haven't read the print version of Moon Dance, but I don't see how it could be better than the audio version. The narrator in the audio version has the opportunity to flush out the plot, the characters and the heart aching situations that arrive better than to just see it in print.
The wife, through no fault of her own became a vampire and her husband began to judge her and pull away, despite how much she tried to maintain an attitude of a normal marraige.
I haven't listened to Dina Pealman prior to this performance, but felt she lent an extraordinary flavor to an other than ordinary occurance to a normal working woman.
This book is just plain silly. What kind of mother, vampire or no, runs a private investigation business from her home where her children sleep? A terrible one. /And the client's last name is Fulcrum? Seriously? Like the balancing point of an object? The author might as well of named him Mr. Plot Device. It wasn't the worst book I've ever read because at least it was so bad it made me laugh. That carries a lot of weight with me. Thank goodness Audible has a return policy.
I don't think I've enjoyed a paranormal mystery/romance like this since Kim Harrison's Hollow series. Sam, short for Samantha, Moon feels like a real woman struggling with a failing marriage and trying to balance her vampirism with her love for her kids. I also appreciated that she was willing to admit to the dark impulses that made her want to hurt the bad guys using her new powers. It will be interesting to see how her character continues to deal with the issue in book 2.
Nice short story (under 20 hours is short in my thinking). Nicky developed, differently written in a style as an introduction to more stories, as in the tradition as a weekly vampire detective adventure show. Light and uncomplicated.
