    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    Made me smile thinking about some of my own Christmas traditions. Amanda brings the characters to life makes you feel like part of the family.


    What other book might you compare I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas to and why?

    This fits right in with the rest of the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Shopping for a Christmas tree will never be the same.


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

    The first conversation with Iris after Gigi gets home is sweet.

    Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The whole Halfmoon Hollow story line is great. The characters are flawed and feel real.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dick Chaney is always a great character. 500 years from now he will still be a hillbilly at heart...


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Hard to say. Amanda Ronconi is a wonderful narrator. I have purchased other stories just so I could hear more of her work...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When is a curse not just a curse?


    Any additional comments?

    Although a great stand alone, Reading the other books from the world, (starting with Nice Girls Don't Bite) will improve your enjoyment of the book. There has been a lot of character and town development in the series.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    Would you listen to Affliction again? Why?

    When Aries met his fate...


    What does Kimberly Alexis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a good job changing the characters. You are able to feel the Lust, Anger, and Fear, that the characters feel.


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

    The willingness to say I do...

    I love that Anita is back to her Zombie raising awesomeness... And Ted was a great surprise...

    Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires to be better than the print version?

    The narrators voice was perfect for the character. Lots of inflection made the story fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    The main characters first meeting was great. Her love affair with candy makes her very human.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There are somethings even chocolate can't fix.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the first of molly's books I read. It made me laugh so hard in some places and caught my breath in others. WARNING the main character's love of candy will make you hungry. Have snacks standing by.
