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.

    being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.

    Story
    "Funny with a good story"
    If you could sum up The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires in three words, what would they be?

    This book was funny, has some action in it, some interpersonal storyline, and (unfortunately) a Vampire to Human love story.
    I liked the story, it kept me interested and i laughed ALLOT...I really liked the interaction between the two sisters, and the main characters sense of humor. She cracked me up allot and her wit was as engaging as well.

    A girl finds a 1/2 "dead" vampire and takes him into her home to nurse him and action, funny stuff, and romance (of course) happen. Really, read it for its wit and humor...


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character had smarts, wit, and humor. She wasn't the typical "human falls for a vampire" and goes gaga, character. She had a really nice look on life and I felt for her situation in life and her choices . I wanted to like her, and I did.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I do have to say that this is one of the few books that I've "read" where I felt like the person who did the performance matched the intent of the author and added to the story. I liked Amanda's performance and it stood out for me.


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

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    Really, read this book...while it has the "Human vs Vampire" love story snuck in there, it was still REALLY good and the humor and wit of the writer seemed to outshine the love story aspect that has been so overdone in many books these days.

    I would recommend this book because it is light, funny and I thought the main character was really well written.


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

    I don't have any other titles I would really compare it with.


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

    I have not listened to any other performances by this narrator. I thought she did an excellent job.


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

    There were lots of funny bits sprinkled throughout the whole book. That made it a really enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "Simple Story but the trip was nice."
    What did you love best about The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    I enjoyed the play between the two characters and the normal narrator. This series is perhaps the most consistant,and entertaining of many in the Paranormal.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Suprisingly not much.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the strenght of the female characters.. She wasn't about to put her sister in danger. Cared strongly for her future and saw this as a business job that takes her ona roller coaster. Who hasn't lived that sad story.


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

    You bite me and I will stake you in your sleep!


    Any additional comments?

    Well done, enjoyed. Loved the contiuation of the original Narrator who really knows how to work Molly Harper to the best. Ronconi has one of the best, underrated voices in the business. She is snark, classy and bad to the bone when her characters need it. She makes the audiobooks... but Molly Harper's paperbacks are a delight as well.

    I don't have any favorites,without all of them the story would be dull!

    Amanda is a great reader. I love all her performaces. I know when and who each character is.She's exciting and brilliant!!!


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

    Story
    "Molly Harper once again has me hooked!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires the most enjoyable?

    I always enjoy listening to Molly Harper's books, not only because I absolutely love her characters, but because Amanda Ronconi gives such life to them! Harper's books always leave me wanting more and this one was no exception! I can only hope we will hear much more about Iris Scanlon and her life as a day-time assistant to the vampires of Half Moon Hollow!


    What did you like best about this story?

    As usual, I really enjoyed the sarcasm and wit of the main character, Iris. I think I enjoy Harper's books so much because the characters are very relatable. Iris is someone I can see being a very good (and funny) friend.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Everything! She totally gets each character and their subtle nuances!
