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!
Harper loves to tell her vampire jokes in story form and provides sympathetic characters with mothers who worry and friends from other books. Jane Jamison and other characters from her vampire stories make an appearance. The hero is a tough and lovely tomboy who is not easily rattled. Her first job is to deliver a cantankerous vampire across country for a meeting. They don't seem to get on well at all, and of course the comic mishaps and subsequent fear and shame give lots of giggles. Love Molly Harper!!
This is a very fun road trip book that I think most people would like. I know all the people I have forced into listening to it have loved it (and I am not shy about demanding people listen to this book). This is not just a nice little romance (it is a totally fun and awesome romance), it is actually also a lot of fun in general.
If you're a fan of Molly Harper, you won't be disappointed. If you're new to Molly Harper, this book is the perfect introduction to her quirky sense of humor and campy sense of style. I liked this character and would love to see more of her. Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator for Harper's books--lively and likable and with the perfect tone for the occasional mild-core raunchiness.
The story contains so much humor and was delivered so well by Ms. Ronconi that at times I found myself laughing out loud.
The vandalism of the bat mobile. . . very funny and I loved Colin's reaction to it.
I loved this book. It is almost as good as the Jane Jameson books, also narrated by Ms. Ronconi. She can pull off a flawless southern accent that many of narrators really struggle with.
The conversation Miranda had with her mother near the end of the book was probably the closest thing to poignant in this book.
Download this book. Download all of Molly Harper's books. They are my favorites.
I loved the narration. She made it come to life. So funny!
I love audible books. They are so much more powerful when the seem to be an actual person telling you there story.
You need to love vampire stuff. It's a little corny for some but I thought it was a delight.
I have enjoyed Molly Harper's books, but I like the Nice Girl ones the best. Amanda Ronconi is an amazing narrator!
I feel it's probably safe to say I'm in the minority as a male reader/listener to Molly Harper's works. What can I say, I like a romcom and she is definitely funny. I've burned through pretty much everything she's written about Half Moon Hollow and werewolves in Alaska etc etc. Most of the books are pretty formulaic, but they are funny as hell and satisfying.
This one is just the low point I guess. This book's female lead was just pretty bland and the male character, I found little sympathy for. He just seemed to be a character plucked from any one of the 80's romcoms - aloof, not knowing how to connect.
What generally makes Ms. Harper's books good are a bunch of nearly-Shakespearian mix ups, misunderstandings, and people doing things wholly inappropriate. Aside from boob-painting vandals, this story really seemed to lack that quality.
I wouldn't say, "Don't read this", but I would say, "Only read this when you've got nothing else and you want a fix of fantasy romcom."
