    Driven from their hometown of Mystic Falls, both Stefan Salvatore and his brother, Damon, arrived in Europe looking for a fresh start. But Samuel, a wealthy and cunning vampire, has other plans for them. First he ruined Stefan’s peaceful existence and now he’s framing Damon for the most gruesome murders London has ever seen. United against their common enemy, Stefan and Damon are stunned when they realize that the source of Samuel’s rage lies in their past - tied up with the woman who changed their lives.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This wasn't as good as The Care and Feeding book. This one was a little predicable but still a light, fun book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked how uptight the vampire was in contrast to the driver and their dynamic/interactions.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A little more complexity of the back stories of the characters.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires in three words, what would they be?

    I thought it was funny and quirky. The story was semi light but the report between the two characters was like ting and yang and full of sarcasm...which I personally enjoy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the sister. She called like she saw it. But the main characters did the same


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed her narration. She put the matter of fact and the sarcasm at just the right parts.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh.

    Stefan and Damon thought they knew evil. But nothing compares to Samuel, the ruthless vampire hell-bent on avenging Katherine's death by destroying the Salvatore brothers. Reeling from Samuel's latest attack, Stefan and Damon find help in the most unlikely of places - a secret coven of witches. Together they discover Samuel's plan is more sinister than they ever could have imagined. Their only hope is to stop him before he secures the power to control humans and vampires alike. If they fail, not only Stefan and Damon but all of London will fall victim to Samuel's spell.

    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Freed?

    The story branched out into other storylines which was interesting. There was alot of exploration of Christian and why he was the he was. To read him unfold and reveal so much of himself to Anna and others was very interesting to read. I really enjoyed all of the books but this one tied (no pun intended) it up nicely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The evolution of christian.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s voice?

    Interesting


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The conversation they had in bed where be bared everything.

    Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He’s a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened - of himself or some other fiend.
