Another fun and interesting book in Molly Harper's book shelf. I am always thrilled to see another of her titles in the new releases list and they always go straight to my cart.
Amanda's narration is again, just perfect. You won't be sorry to use your credit.
My only complaint? They end too quickly so could be an hour or more longer.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
On recommendation from my youngest daughter-who is into paranormal romances, I downloaded a couple of Molly Harper novels. If you like light paranormal romance I'm sure you'll love this book. I'm recovering from hip surgery and very much needed something different to listen to, having read and heard everything I could imagine, I decided to try this different-for me- novel.
I understand all the reasons for laughter that filled most of the reviews. Harper is a funny writer but, honestly, if this topic isn't something you normally enjoy, most likely you'll roll your eyes at "Care and Feeding". It's basically one step up from young adult writing...lets call it "Twilight for the Twenties and Thirties."
Amanda Ronconi gives a cute voice to the heroine-she's ideal for this and similar books.
I have another Molly Harper book to listen to and I'm sure I'll enjoy it just as much as this one. It's not something I usually like but it wasn't awful...it was just different.
The story was great and the performance wonderful. It was nice to see new sides to some of our oldest Half Moon Hallow characters too.
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
I don't know why so many people say this book is funny - I didn't find it to be particularly funny (and yes I do have a sense of humour). I will admit, however, that it is light and fluffy, so maybe that is what makes it funny? dunno... but there certainly weren't any moments that made me giggle, nor did I notice any moments where I thought the author was aiming for funny and missed...
It is a fast read, and it's not very deep, but you wouldn't be reading Harper for a deep novel anyway, would you. The mystery is just entertaining enough that you kinda wonder who the bad guy is, but mostly the story is about the main character's personal life/growth so the bad guy - and the entire 'suspense' thread - is mostly irrelevant.
I almost felt there was a problem with the time-component of the story. The vampire is staying for one week, then two, but we're told 'several' days pass a couple times, so I am not sure if they fell in love in 3 days, or in 9. Either way, it is a rapid about face for an ancient vampire. But, to be fair, these books assume 'true love' will happen nearly immediately - that is one of the reasons people buy them, for the romance (or soft-porn as the case may be).
In this case, there are no graphic details (but they do have a bit of semi-detailed sex), and it is not gory. Really, it is a lighthearted vampire romance novel with a tiny bit of non-romantic suspense to it. I would read more by Harper, but only if I wanted some brain-fluff. The narration is very good.
Great story.Love Molly's books,all have a fun sence of humor about them & Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator.Another good one:)
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
Its no secret that I love Molly Harper. Specifically Molly Harper as read by Amanda Ronconi. I don't know what makes the combo work so well, but it does.
For me, all of these books are like coming back home.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This one is more like #5 to the Nice Girls series, but with a new person as the main character. Of course it was funny, Molly Harper wrote it. The narration was spot on. It probably can be read separately but I don't recommend it because a lot of the background information would be lost. I will be reading all of the half moon hollow books that Molly Harper can put out.
wife,mother, hard worker... and lover of romance and wit
I choose this book as part of a promo special/package deal, and was glad I made the choice. I have since downloaded and listened to several of miss harpers books and really appreciate her creativity and wit.
I think it says a lot about a writer if a reader can enter into the middle of a series, and can not only follow the thread of the story... but than has to to get the previous books that she has already missed.
try a Molly Harper book and enjoy
Maybe one of my girlfriends that would like a comical romance novel. Most of my friends like to read books such as Wheel of Time or anything by Brandon Sanderson, so they tend to think they are above romance novels.
I felt the relationship was a little too rushed. I haven't met a couple that feel in love in a month and proposed and seen it last. If maybe it happened after a few years, or he just came back and said he wanted to be with her, I would be ok with that.
I thought she did an awesome job and it really allowed me to enjoy the story fully.
I laughed a lot. It was really a witty book that I enjoyed.
I only have the audio version, but doubt reading the print version would be better.
Can't think of any one specifically. Perhaps portions of the Charlaine Harris Sooky Stackhouse series - a mix of humor, mundane, and the supernatural world.
Not that I know of.
Iris Scanlon - Daylight Vampire Concierge or snack?
Did I mention funny?
