love listening to great books while I work, clean, and drive...a great way to experience great books!!!
4th in this category of book. Only behind the Good Girl series.
When Iris helps fight at the end of the book. She is crazy to jump a vampire,but I love that she jumped into the fray.
She is Iris, Jane, Andrea and etc..I loved the scenes where Iris and Jane are having a conversation. Amanda makes the story and sadly they end too soon.
While Iris is in the hospital the vampire community leave gifts and well wishes at her home. She had supported them so much, but this gesture shows that they appreciate her and all that she does.
I love Molly Harper's work I discovered her work on a whim and am fell in love.
Plenty of action and comedy.
I don't think any of the characters will ever compare to Jane, but I am still in love with Half Moon Hollow and all the crazy people it contains.
I like that this one was different from the others, as some people actually stay human and do not make the transformation into Vampire. It was a simply decision that changes the whole storyline for me. :)
I really hope this series continues, I don't know that I will find anything quite as funny too read after this!
It's either going to be a good time or a GREAT anecdote!
Never read the print version.
She has perfect delivery. It's rare for a femal narrator to be that distinct modulating voices but she does it beautifully.
Yeah. Actually I was really sick the day I bought this so I think I did
I found this book when I ran out of Terry Pratchett novels. I spend 2-5 hours a day in my car and need engaging audiobooks as a method of overall sanity preservation. .
I liked the new characters and the accent that Amanda Ronconi gives Cal.
She makes the characters seem more real.
All of her books make me laugh. Her characters are spunky and unique. I didn't feel like I got to know Iris as well as I did Jane from her previous series.
It's definitely a continuation of the Jane Jameson world. I wouldn't listen to this without listening to those first.
At first I was a bit bummed to discover the female lead was snarky and a bit jaded - I really don't like that attitude in a gal. But I stuck with it and was pleasantly surprised to find a fairly good read. The story line was interesting and I enjoyed the characters.
There is nothing better than a good book!
I could go on and on about Molly Harper's wittiness and talent.... She is one of my favorite top 5 authors ever... But when she teamed up with Amanda Ronconi, oh my! What a pair! Ronconi's spot-on vocals and her ability to bring Harper's characters to life always leaves me smiling and begging for more!
I believe in true love, happily ever after, magic, and laughter. But mostly I believe in coffee.
She is quick witted, sarcastic, and simply is fun to read. Amanda Ronconi handles the sarcasm with expertise. I think this an excellent use of a credit!
Harbinger of Books
Iris is the concierge to vampires in Half Moon Hallow this means she does all the things vampires cannot do in the day time, event planning. delivering blood, shipping packages, etc. On top of running her business she is the guardian to her sister and she is trying to manager her on/off again relationship with an ex boyfriend. Then one day Iris is in the middle of her very long to do list when she trips over Calix also known as Cal. Cal is a vampire, he has come to Half Moon Hallow to investigate a series of unprovoked vampire attacks on humans. The problem is Cal has been poisoned and needs to hide from everyone. The unwilling Iris agrees to host him for a week for a small fee. BUT Cal thinks humans are worthless and Iris thinks vampire are one step away from ripping her throat out. Iris and Cal have to figure out how to get beyond their issues.
We first meet Iris in Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors as she helps Jane get through her wedding nuptials. I really enjoyed this book it was lighthearted and funny. The writing is smooth all of the way through and the mystery who is behind the poisoning was good.
I listened to this book on audio, it was narrated by Amanda Ronconi and she is fantastic!
You do not need to read any of the other books in the Jane Jameson series nor the previous book in the Half Moon Hallow (Driving Mr. Dead)
Professional female with little time for the fun things (cooking, reading and traveling)!
What fun! Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi were made for each other. When I want to really relax on a long drive (my job is high stress; high focus) this is a great combo. The stories rarely disappoint. I admit that a time or two Ms. Ronconi's voice can be too much; but, it was in part the material, too. But for just a fun "read" you can't miss here.
Oh, yeah, this was a good effort. Worth buying.
In the top 10% of my 200 plus audiobooks so far.
The interactions with the vampires were fine, but I particularly liked the exchanges with her teenage sister.
The narrator has a delicious command of accents and voices. You can almost see the characters. She is right up there with Jim Dale of Harry Potter fame.
