I'm 28 years old, I live in Alabama, married to my husband, Bryan, for 4 years. We have no children, unless you count our two cats!
I always enjoy listening to Molly Harper's books, not only because I absolutely love her characters, but because Amanda Ronconi gives such life to them! Harper's books always leave me wanting more and this one was no exception! I can only hope we will hear much more about Iris Scanlon and her life as a day-time assistant to the vampires of Half Moon Hollow!
As usual, I really enjoyed the sarcasm and wit of the main character, Iris. I think I enjoy Harper's books so much because the characters are very relatable. Iris is someone I can see being a very good (and funny) friend.
Everything! She totally gets each character and their subtle nuances!
I enjoy many types of books and am always looking for new authors to read and listen too. I enjoy reading the reviews and adding my own from time to time.
Interesting, Fun, and Surprising
Monster In My Closet is along the same lines but still different enough to stand on it's own.
All of it. Her voice inflections were very good and she was very smooth in her delivery. I will look for more narrations by her. She does a better job on making her vampire not sound like a bad imitation of Bella Laggossi as many do.
I did not cry that I can remember. I laughed at the funny moments because they truly were funny. There were many serious moments in the book as well of course. I listened to this book in one sitting. Cleaned house as I did so. I like this story and will listen again. I can always appreciate an enterprising heroine and this story certainly has one. Iris is a really good character. Cal is a vampire character that I really liked.
This is another good light listen. Nothing real deep here but but very entertaining. An author that I will look for and probably listen to again.
Driving Mr. Dead
Cal - Amanda Ronconi has the greatest ability to hit that perfect note of sarcastic, idiot, jack-a@#, cute guy tone.
Yes! I made my fiance get this, and I have re-listened to parts of it with him and still enjoy hearing the story over again. It's humorous moments make me laugh even after listening to it a second time.
I did after reading this book, and she does equally well for both performances. I love the different voices she uses for her characters, and her normal speaking voice isn't grating, annoying, or too dry like a couple others that I've come across. She is expressive and down to earth.
I own a pet care company, and I am on the road or out walking animals all the time, and I was looking for something that would keep my attention and be positive and fun. This fit the bill! I laughed out loud constantly and loved the suspense and fun banter and tension between the two main characters.
JUST A WARNING. Probably, don't want to listen to this one in a silent office. I was giggling all day long. I loved the flow of the book, expertly paced... and Amanda Ronconi - love her!
The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampiers is another wonderful and funny book by Molly Harper.
Iris is very happy with her job as a daytime vampire concierge, until she falls for Cal.... literally.
The end may be predictiable, but getting there is always fun.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys to laugh out loud while reading.
It was good to have a different character and while this book is great as a stand alone book, it was cute to have the cross references with all Molly Harpers other books. As always a fast paced, action book with the gutsy female characters always falling into trouble but falling in love at the end. a good story is where I look for excuses to plug my headphones in. thanks again Ms Harper on a job well done.
I haven't read the print version of this book but prefer this series as audiobook because narrator is so great!
GiGi because she that combination of kid and grown-up all older teens seem to be.
Different sounding voices for each character
I love the Molly Harper / Amanda Ronconi combination! I recommend these audio books to everyone who enjoys a funny, entertaining and sexy read!!
The comedy and the attitude of the characters, especially the primaries. I bought this book quickly...found myself on a 30 hour road trip with everyone else sleeping. I bought this on a whim to try something different and really enjoyed it. Driving time flew by and I wish I could jump right into the next book!
She is a great choice for this character. I would like to read more with these two characters and have already looked into other books by this author. I hope Amanda reads those as well. Her voice fit very well with the snarky attitude of the lead, and I found myself lost in the story as if I was watching a movie.
"moved me?", no....not that kind of book. This was an all out, action packed, romantic leaning, fun read for anyone. Lots of comedy, lots of rooting for the characters.
This is a good introductory book for readers interested in the modern vampire genera. Kind of a "vampire lite" read. Lots of fun! I couldn't wait to get back to it and was sorry when it was finished.
