    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    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!

    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.

    Where does The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    4th in this category of book. Only behind the Good Girl series.


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

    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.


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

    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.


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

    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.

    Funnyman Adam Carolla is known for two things: hilarious rants about things that drive him crazy and personal stories about everything from his hardscrabble childhood to his slacker friends to the hypocrisy of Hollywood. He tackled rants in his first book, and now he tells his best stories and debuts some never-before-heard tales as well. Adam Carolla started broke and blue collar and has now been on the Hollywood scene for over 15 years. Yet he never lost his underdog demeanor.

    Would you listen to Not Taco Bell Material again? Why?

    Yes, I love hearing all the stories and they offer a window into Adam's later years.



    What did you like best about this story?

    His chapters are organized by where he lived at the time. It is a very creative.


    What about Adam Carolla’s performance did you like?

    He is barely reading the book! It feels like a conversation. He also has lived reactions to some of his memories and includes new topics that are not in the written book.


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

    When his girlfriend found the article in the paper for the later known acme improve company. You get to hear his first review. This is one of his first attempts to perform on his own terms.


    Any additional comments?

    If you listen to The Adam Carolla daily podcast, he will reference many of the same stories, tbut the written book and the audio book are not the same.you should consider getting both versions.

    It's what he was raised to do. Most parents would hide or destroy any evidence so clearly demonstrating their child's failures, but-lucky for us-Greg Fitzsimmons's family has preserved each mistake in its original envelope like a trophy in a case, lest he ever forget where he came from.

    Adam Carolla's First book...the back story really paints the picture.

    The author had other people read the letters, but sometimes the outside readers sound quality was not great.
