Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
A break-off from the Jane Jameson series. Very similar and just as amusing. While not mandatory, start with the Jane books so you have some of the back story.
If you like the previous Molly Harper vampire and werewolf stories, the you'll enjoy this one. I have listened to them all, as the narration makes them shine. I'm scared to read any of these books, cause I'm absolutely sure that I wouldn't enjoy them as much. Amanda gets the punch lines and delivers them just right, to make you chuckle and laugh out loud at times, while delivering a somewhat dramatic mystery.
To me, this book wasn't as good as some of the others, but helped with comic relief from a few of my other reading interests.
A fun an easy to listen to narrative full of laughs and Molly Harper sense of humor that is present in her stories. Iris and Cal was new and to my palate a more interesting spin on Half Moon Hollow resident supernaturals.
I put off buying this book for a while because I wasn't convinced I would like it, but boy, was I wrong! I loved the dry, sarcastic humor of the book!
I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend, after they read the other books in this series. It's not that you can't follow this without reading the other books, it will just ruin the others in the series for you. If you want a preview to the series with out completely ruining the Jane books listen to Driving Mr Dead.
Fair warning, I did not immediately love Iris like I did Jane. (I have a bit of a girl crush on Jane) but she definitely grew on me! Listen past the first 30 minutes and you will be eating it up!
Pretty much the all the other vampire books by Molly Harper. She writes good paranormal romance novels with a strong female character. One thing that does make her stand out is her humor, she definitely does funny better then many paranormal romance authors.
Haven't read the print version, though I imagin the audio version would be better.
I have read everything Molly Harper has written. They are all really happy, uplifting, and free spirited.
She has an excellent voice, beautiful cadence.
Believe it or not the so called "snark" other reviewers, doesn't compare to Tavia Gilberts readings. I liked GG's character best.
Iris' knowledge of Botany. It put an interesting twist on the poison.
She is not one of my favorite narrators.
I did laugh in a few parts of the ending. The love scenes left me thinking, did they just do it? I'd hear her thinking about her past lovemaking session and think "how did I miss that?" So I had to rewind and find the kiss or whatever.
If you like her you will LOVE Tavia Gilbert reading the Bones and Cat novels.
Getting back together with the characters from the Hollow was the best thing. I really love that the characters we know and love are included in the story as well.
I would have to say that my favorite character was Iris....all those candy stashes stole my heart. Gosh she is funny just like Jane.
I love her narration, in all of the previous books and she did not disappoint .
I really wish I had the time to listen to it in one sitting. I would listen to it on the commute to work and really wish that I didn't have to work so that I could listen to the rest of the book. Every opportunity I had, I listened.
Narrator did such a great job!
Female lead. She was spunky.
Yes, I enjoyed all of her works by this author.
Not the best Harper novel IMO but I only think it's because I was not a big fan of the heroine in this one. I just couldn't relate to her and I don't believe that has anything to do with the story or the narration, just what tends to push my buttons in characters and what doesn't. Otherwise, there was humor throughout but again, I didn't feel it as full of humor as her other novels. However, overall a good side book for characters introduced in her Nice Girls series.
