The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires Audiobook

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.

    Story
    "Stricking Gold!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked all the characters. Everyone's part, big or small, was excellently written, read, and necessary to the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Iris takes Cal to her house and he falls out of the shower, naked on top of her, only to throw up blood all over her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books! This is a continuation of "Nice Girls", but the book is now about the wedding planner (still human). It is funny, well written, and the narration is fantastic! I can't wait till the next book comes out!

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

    High up--I really enjoy the witty banter in Molly Harper's books, despite the highly improbable plot lines

    "Molly Does It Again"

    Yes, its exactly what you would expect from Molly Harper, fun, creative and mostly great entertainment.

    And who else could ever read Molly Harper's work and bring so much life into them except Amanda Ronconi.

    Just want more more more.

    "Witty writing and tons of fun!"

    I think Molly Harper is one of the wittiest authors I have ever read, and she does not disappoint in this installment of the Half-Moon Hollow crew! My only wish is that she could write faster so we would have more new books to read!! lol :)

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

    funny - suspenseful - erotic


    What did you like best about this story?

    Really liked the humour. This is a very entertaining book with interesting characters. Makes me want to listen to/read more of this author's books.


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

    Amanda Ronconi reads this story so well, I'm definately going to look out for more of 'her' reads.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is addictive. Once I started I found myself putting everything else off as much as possible to listen to it all. But it was a very enjoyable, very entertaining hole out of my day. I've recommended it to several of my friends and family already (and that was before I'd even finished it).

    "/another Molly Harper Winner"

    Extremely funny, and a great listen. Made me laugh out loud. A wonderful mystery with a great twist at the end. I love the botanical references, and I have decided to follow the main character's recommendations for candy stashes to relieve stress. The teenaged sister in this book reminded me so much of my daughter, I find it hard to believe that Ms. Harper doesn't know her. i only wish the Great Vampire Coming out were really true.

    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all of Molly Harper's Audible offerings, and haven't been disappointed yet! The person that choose Amanda Ronconi to narrate these books should be given a huge bonus! She brings the characters to life and makes them "human" and loveable! I was never a fan of the current vampiric genre, but this series is one of my favorite "go-to" romps for light, mood lifting fun! I can't wait for more! Give Molly and Amanda a chance, you wont' regret it!

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

    This is a book well worth reading but most enjoyable listening to. Amanda does justice to the characters and the plot. The novel is a worthy new chapter in the "Nice Girl" universe with delightfully funny and charming characters, (the requisite surly vampires hero) and a riveting plot. Molly Harper's vampire novels are the only ones that do not want me to stake and bake the vampires.

    Story
    "Sucks (no pun intended)"
    What disappointed you about The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    The story is boring, I kept waiting for something juicier to happen but nothing. Too linear and typical. Like Sookie Stackhouse pulled several notches down then author tried to make it sexy which made primary character easy and trashy. All in all a waste of credit and time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Molly Harper again?

    No. Unless she comes up with something better and gets raving reviews first, then maybe I'll read it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too fast. And the depiction of the male characters were really bad.


    What character would you cut from The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    Mr Dud

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

    Funny, Sexy, Romantic


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

    I loved the bond that Iris has with her sister Gigi. They stick together no matter what.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I personally loved the scene where Iris's Ex boyfriend stops by unexpectedly and finds a very sexy Vampire putting moves on his former lover.


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

    Sexy Vampire meets Sexy Human, need I say more?


    Any additional comments?

    Molly Harper has quickly become my favorite Author. This is an excellent spin off of the Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series. Can't wait to see more from her!
