A fun quick story in the half-moon hollow series. We see Dick C. (I won't spoil it) in a walk-on role. I do NOT recommend this book as your first exposure to the series but I HIGHLY recommend the series. Indeed, if I were coming up with Audible's list of 'first listens" one of the books by Molly Harper White narrated by Amanda Ronconi would be on the list. I don't normally even like paranormal novels. Who knew? Jon
This is the only book I've listened to in the series, and probably the only one I will. I thought it was funny, I laughed out loud a lot, a good story, and the narrator was great, really made the book. Not necessary to listen to other books in the series to enjoy this one.
Typically I am not into the vampire books, but I was looking for something different and grabbed this because it was on sale. I was quite pleasantly surprised by Harper's writing style. Her infusion of humor into her stories makes them a fun read and after reading this I am going to read the rest of the Sleepy Hollow series. For better or worse, I am one of those readers that must read/listen to all the characters stories once I get into a series. While vampire stories still don't rate high on my list overall, Harper's books and the equally fun narrator are the exception and will be part of my library.
I only listen to Molly Harper books with Amanda Ronconi to bring it to life.
Amanda always makes the humor, roll on the floor laughing!
Snort or guffaw out loud at work.
Short, Funny, Interesting
I don't have a favorite. I enjoyed all equally!
I have not, but would love to listen to more of her performances.
When she found out about the ring, and had her break down.... I teared up.
I shouldn't have bought this. Thought it might be a little more than a background for a budding romance.
Sorry, no, just not my genre.
Depends on the book.
Interest at first, ennui by the end.
Don't be put off by this review if you like light listening with quite likeable characters. This book had rave reviews so my reaction reflects my listening tastes rather than the quality of the writing and narrating.
I have read several reviews of Molly Harper so I bought this one on a Bogo. I knew the series was well loved and folks thought the works funny. I think I expected something I already found funny or had some experience anticipating the shape and direction of the writing. This was a surprise. A very competent writer has anchored the ordinary, unexpected and the imagined in a delicious mix. It was fun and not really what I expected. The narrator was perfect. Thanks to all the reviewers who gave me the confidence to make this choice.
The narrator was very good. She really conveyed the humor in the story.
I really enjoyed the series.
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
My one complaint about this is that is isn't a full length novel. Its great. Miranda is fun, Colin is fun, their adventure is great.
for easy, light listening, yes. Always a good laugh...
I have listened to several of Molly Harper's and enjoyed them all.
She does a great job bringing the characters to life.
