The story was very enjoyable and quite funny. The heroine was quirky and endearing. The vampire was quite funny at first, but gradually morphed into your typical gorgeous, fantasy ideal-male character that is so popular in chick-lit. That's a bit cliche but the fun interactions between the two characters made up for it.
Amanda Ronconi's is an amazing performer. She is definitively a voice actor, not simply someone who read books. She was able to imbue the already vibrant text with inflections and nuances. Her voices and accents are dead on. I was really impressed, and will look for other books she has performed in.
Most definitely. I just wished the book was longer
I recently went back & listened to all of Molly Harpers books with my husband because I knew he would love the humour that she is famous for. This is a novella where we meet Miranda. Miranda is going through a lot of trauma & turmoil in her life and is using her job as an undead chauffeur to clear her head & make some decisions. One thing I can say about Molly's characters is this, my problems always seem petty after getting to laugh at theirs.
Thank you Molly for the comic relief. Always worth the credit or cash. Amanda Ronconi is one of the narrators out there.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
Buy the book, you will enjoy the story. Interesting take on vampires and humans living together. Strong characters.
I freaking loved this book. It was so funny and refreshing. I enjoyed it so much I will now read (listen) to all of Mollys books!! I literally couldnt stop listening.
This was the best narrator ever!! from woman, to man, to vampire, to old lady, to mom, to boyfriend. Wow :)
Even throughout the road trip from hell, the humor was fantastic. I do love the snarky vampire and a sarcastic human combination.
Not much of a plot, characters are likeable and I appreciated the author's sense of humor.
I have already multiple times. This story is so hilarious, I love hearing all the trouble that happens to both the characters and how the two of them start to trust then love each other.
One of the most memorable moments for me was when Collin, trying to help, attempts to get gas for Miranda, can't figure out how to open the gas tank and just rips off the gas tank cover. Then he remembers he has no wallet with him and goes back to wait until Miranda wakes up.
I really liked Amanda's narration of this story, her inflections and tonal changes are right on with how I imagine the characters would be responding
When Miranda and Collin are in the cellar of the farm house.
Great audible book all around.
All of Molly Harper's books are smile worthy, but this book, no matter how many times I listen I laugh out loud. I can't help it, there are just some parts of this book that are so funny that you can't stop yourself from laughing hysterically. My advice to you is to book mark the passage because because if you laugh as hard as I think you will it will be hard to explain and you will just have to let someone else listen to that part. The story is great and a little hard to let go. I listen whenever I need a laugh and I'm never disappointed. I love this book and you will too. Amanda Ronconi is awesome when it comes to expressing sarcasm and dry wit and Molly Harper is and expert at writing it. I love this duo. You can never go wrong when you buy them.
I'm the author of the book "Bronx DA" and an attorney.
Molly Harpers vampire books are a very particular kind of read. They are light, funny stories with brooding men and sassy women. I can't say that from one book to the other, she is really creating extremely different characters or plots, but if you just want something consistently entertaining, you will enjoy these books. They are reliable, light reads. I really enjoy her books in between heavy reads or when I just want to have a good laugh.
Funny, captivating, sexy.
All of them. The characters meshed very well.
A genuine sounding accent without being insulting to us southerners.
Can surly be sexy?
The book was a continuation of the Half Moon Hollow tales. It allowed the story to be enjoyed without having to purchase and listen to all the other Half Moon Hollow tales. Although you really should because they are quite enjoyable!
