The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires | [Molly Harper]

The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Cal - who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris allowed herself to think that way - offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place until he figures out who wants him permanently dead. Even though he's imperious, unfriendly, and doesn't seem to understand the difference between "employee" and "servant", Iris agrees, and finds herself breaking more and more of her own rules to help him - particularly those concerning nudity. Turns out what her quiet little life needed was some intrigue and romance - in the form of her very own stray vampire.

    "The right amount of snark and sweetness."
    Where does The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would be in the top 15.


    What other book might you compare The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires to and why?

    I would say that this book is very comparable to How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf in that the heroine was feisty and maybe a bit over her head and the hero is a bit troubled and a bit sweet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning did a great job of sucking me in.


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

    This book was very funny.


    Any additional comments?

    It is definitely worth a credit.

    "Good Spin-off"

    I love the Jane Jameson series. I have listened to all of the books more than once. So I was really excited to start the spin-off series. And The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires was good, but Iris and Cal are not nearly as good/interesting as Jane and Gabriel. It was nice that the characters I've come to know and love, Jane, Andrea, Joellene, etc. made an appearance. For fans of Molly Harper, this book is a good read. I do plan on reading the second book in the series, but I am not going to run out and buy it the way I did after reading the Jane Jameson series.

    "Witty & Interesting"

    As usual Molly delivers a glimpse of our would-be world with vampires. Her writing style makes it easy to connect to the characters and Amanda Ronconi is a superb narrator who does an excellent job switching from one role to another.

    Story
    "You have got to listen to this book! Hysterical!"

    Molly Harper's writing and Amanda Ronconi's narration are both in top form in this book. Iris Scanlon, concierge to the vampire community, stumbles (literally) across a poisoned vampire (Cal) and ends up taking him home with her while he recuperates. The main story is about them trying to discover who was out to destroy Cal, while Iris continues to perform her services of planning vampire weddings and keeping them stocked with donor blood and various other requests. The witty dialogue between Iris, Cal, and Iris' little sister Gigi would be hysterical to read, and when Amanda Ronconi starts to put her voices to the characters, they come alive like a recently turned vampire. I was in stitches when Gigi's date gets the third degree from both Cal and Iris and the whole piece about Booty Call Paul was funny, too. You'll love this book, whether or not you've read Ms. Harper's other novels about Half Moon Hollow!

    "Wicked Wit and A Laugh A Minute!"

    Pull your candies from their hiding spots and enjoy this book! I loved it and reread it several times and it always makes me smile! I love the clever humor, suspense and dabble of sexy Ms. Harper throws in this book. If you like your vampires and a good romance...this series has it all. Read the series from book one and everything will make perfect sense.

    "Worst book that I've listened to so far"
    What could Molly Harper have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The main characters were in love way too fast. There needed to be a few pages of relationship depth...


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator had no range. All of the characters sounded the same.

    "FUN"

    We both enjoy all of Molly's books especially with snarking reading by Amanda. I found her werewolf books more likely to send what I am drinking up my nose from laughter, but these are wonderful too. K
