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.
Live, love, laugh...
Definitely! This is a short, super funny paranormal rom-com that you can listen to over and over.
Miranda's character is my favorite. She is funny, prone to life threatening idiocy and totally likable. She's on a journey to discover what she wants to do with her life and I enjoyed every turn on he way.
Amanda Ronconi does an amazing job with every character of this book and all other Molly Harpers books. She's the perfect narrator because she gets the writers sense of humor perfectly.
It made me laugh out load more times than I could count.
Beware when you listen to this book. I decided to listen to this in bed while my husband slept. I tried to control my laughter but eventually he woke up due to my historical laugh.
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.
I have now I listened and read over 1500 books since 2010. Goodreads.com is a good way to find books and keep track of what you've read.
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.
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 ;;;;;;;;;
avid audiobook listener, sociopath, nerd.
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.
Love the narration and Molly Harper just keeps making me laugh :) Glad that Dick made a cameo in this book.
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.
I love the Jane Jameson books on audible, and this one goes along with some of the same characters, in the same town. It's main characters are new, Miranda and Collin, but just as zany. Getting into one crazy situation, after another, they kept me laughing out loud. The narrator is the same as the Jane audios, and is superb. I wonder if, I were to read these books, if I would enjoy them as much. With her delivery, you can just picture her on a stage of a comedy club. It's a short novella, but so worth the listen, and looks to blend right in to the next book, as Iris, Miranda's employer, is the main character of that book. For a lighthearted listen, this one's a winner!
I can now do my work and listen too. Hearing a professional reader is the best--great way to pass time.
This is a fun read like all of Molly Harpers books are. The only complaint is that I wish she could write books faster so I can read them.
