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, a distraction Nola doesn’t need. And teaming up with a real-life Adonis is as dangerous as it sounds, especially since Jed’s got the face of an angel and the abs of a washboard. Can Nola complete her mission before falling completely under his spell?

Another instalment in Molly Harper's universe of ordinary life with a twist of the supernatural. All her characters are believable and likeable....the one's you're meant to like anyway; and there's always a twist in the tale to keep the story interesting up to the end.
These aren't deep and meaningful stories and they aren't meant to be, what they are is a lot of fun, and funny to boot. This book in the series is no exception.
This is the story of an Irish lass who comes to Half Moon Hollow to collect some special items once held by a long lost, now deceased relative who owned the bookshop now owned and run by likeable, disaster magnet Jane, who just happens to be a vampire.
....and then there's the drop dead gorgeous neighbour who seems to have an aversion to wearing shirts.
This is a wonderful lighthearted 'read' that will give you a laugh, and leave you feeling much better about your day.
Molly Harper is without a doubt one of my favorite authors. Her characters have personalities that love. A little snarky, funny and bright. The narrator, Amanda Ronconi is PERFECT for her books and this one is no exception. Amanda does a beliveable Irish/Boston accent. I own all of Molly Harper's books and will continue to buy them as fast as she can write them. I love the Half Moon Hollow series.
this one took two chapters to pull me in.... then i got into it. but was a slow start. could have done without the horrible accent. if you cant do it dont. but as always molly brought it through. i cant wait for the next one. get buys girl.
I love Molly Harpers snark and wit and Amanda Ronconi is the perfect fit for her books. Enjoy every book.
Amanda's timing and flow is a perfect fit for Molly Harper's snarky wit.
More Witchy Fun!

what we would hope the come to be
Married, middle-age, owner of 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a messy house.
The same town, the same cast of characters, with 2 new ones that are different from any before. And I mean ~different~! I am having so much fun with Molly Harper's Half Moon Hollow, I hope it never ends. This book is sweet and sexy without being sappy or trite, with a plot that intrigues but doesn't confuse. It is carefully woven into the existing story, but it would still stand on its own. I just love it. I'm ready to listen to it again already!
First of all, a warning. If, like me- you know what an Irish accent sounds like- don't get too cranky at what you hear. The reason it is odd is explained a wee bit into the book. But I really wondered what had happened to the amazing Amanda Ronconi and the horrible accent :) She did a wonderful job and I'm grateful she's been consistently the narrator for the series. Always a professional.
Ms Harper has come up with some new perspectives and they are awesome! I will avoid spoilers, so can only say that she did a nice job of trying to lead us down the garden path before giving up the goods in the end. It's a light romantic story, thoroughly enjoyable and worth the credit. All our favs are there, Jane and Gabriel, Dick and Andrea, Zeb and Jolene- no Ophelia but it was enough without her.
I love everything Molly Harper, but "Witch's Handbook" was just not as perfect as her other books. For first time readers, you must read the" Nice Girl's" and the "Werewolf" series or you will be confused by the characters in this one. Don't worry, they are worth the read! Amanda Ronconi is the only narrator who can read Molly's books, she is perfect! But her Boston/Irish accent was terrible and Nola's voice was too similar to Jane's. Several times I thought there was a Jane dialogue, when in fact it was Nola. They should have had another narrator play Nola parts while Amanda played her usual amazing characters.
The story was classic, witty, sarcastic Molly material. I can never get tired of it. But Jeb's identity was a bit too much of a stretch for me, and there needed to be a little more Jane secondary story line weaved in.
For those Molly Maniacs out there, you'll like it. For those who are new to Molly, read her earlier work first to really enjoy this one.
