As usual, Molly Harper incorporates so many pithy comments and observations in one line after another.. It takes a second listen to follow her bouncing words of satire and wit once they are set in motion..
The main character, Miranda, has that perfect blend of pessimistic optimism. She looks forward to better times, but learns to cope with the disastrous detours along the way.
Amanda Ronconi is the best at potraying modern, intelligent, flawed and funny women. She has a great sense of timing, especially as characters interact and respond to each other's peculiarities.
The book was simply hilarious. It made me laugh and cringe all at the same time. It leaves you waiting to find out what else could go wrong and still hoping that nothing does..
I hope there is a sequel to this book. I would like to see how the main characters Miranda and Colin develop and how they interact wtih the other folks in Half Moon Hollow. I wish that there were a bit more tension between these two characters and more explanation of Colin's attraction to Miranda. The ending seemed to rush their relationship too much given their clear differences.
wow that's all i have to say this was my 2th molly harper book and I lol all night long .(THIS IS A MUST LISTEN) hope to get more of her books.more more more ;;;;;;;;;

I can always count on Molly Harper's books when I need to laugh out loud. As always, this example of her work is sharp, sarcastic and hilarious. I loved this side story of the Dead Girls Don't series, and I can't wait to see what she writes next. It has romance, action, a bit of mystery and loads of charm.
I really enjoyed this story. I found myself laughing so hard from the very beginning. The heroine's view of the world and her adventures are so funny. Ms. Harper did a very good job with the interactions between the hero and heroine. The quick and dirty explanation of the discovery of vampires and how the world reacts fit this story aptly. I was very impressed. It was worth the discounted price. This is my first Molly Harper book and it will not be my last.
I am an artist that loves to read! I have a great husband and we adopted my sister And my brother, they are both adults now! We have a cocker spaniel Lilly and a Norwegian forest cat Inanna!
I always love molly's books and Amanda Ronconi is one of the best narrators there is!
"A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon layout down, and commence living on its hint. what I began by reading, I must finish by acting" -Henry David Thoreau
Absolutely wonderful story! Over way too soon. Amanda Ronconi definitely has an understanding and feel for Molly Harper's writing style.
Say something about yourself!
WHEN I FIRST STARTED TO LISTEN TO THIS BOOK I DIDNT REALLY KNOW WHERE MOLLY HARPER WAS GOING WITH IT, BUT I WAS A REALLY GOOD BOOK. ALTHOUGH IT WAS SHORTER THAN THE OTHER BOOKS I WAS JUST AS GREAT.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY - I think my title says it all. Molly Harper is the queen of this genre. Human female meets sexy male vampire, they don't get along and exchange hilarious snarky remarks, their situation takes turns which throws them into crazy situations, their relationship changes ... need I say more? You will listen with a smile on your face and then look forward to your next Molly Harper escape!
NARRATION - I usually only give 5's for more difficult performances, but Amanda just nails these characters and hits it out of the ballpark!
OVERALL - Definitely humorous chick lit. Definitely enjoyable.
