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.

    "Average for Molly Harper"

    As much as I have enjoyed Molly Harper's works and Amanda Ronconi's narration, I found this title to be listless, a bit rushed and only mildly entertaining.

    The plot seemed rushed because characters would just quickly accept something traumatic or unusual and at one point in the story when our heroine has sex with the vampire, instead of some, I don't know, magical or sensitive moment, they continue their witty banter. In fact, there is so much witty banter throughout this book, that it robbed any remaining drama from the circumstances. No one seemed threatened or afraid or even really very sad because they were so busy with the witty banter.

    I usually enjoy Amanda Ronconi's narration, but here it is lost in a rather average character. In fact, I think everyone in this book was average---even the vampire, who seemed just like a nice guy.

    This won't stop me from listening to Molly Harper's other books, but maybe I will wait a bit.

    "Funny & Dramatic!"
    What did you love best about The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    Such a refreshing change from the same old story line, boy meets girl, girl plays hard to get, boy is a self made millionaire! I was reluctant w this book, but soo glad I got it! Funny, sarcastic humor yet a plot! Thank you!

    Absolute book lover. Would rather spend a day reading than go shopping. Except when shopping for books of course. Loving audio books.

    I love her characters and she is very talented.

    "Okay story, not what was expected"
    What made the experience of listening to The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires the most enjoyable?

    It was interesting to have the back story on someone from the Driving Mr. Dead book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I wanted more about Miranda, so this book was a little of a letdown, since I had liked that one so very much.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can be a stand alone. Not really series stuff in my opinion.

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

    I have enjoyed Molly Harper's books, but I like the Nice Girl ones the best. Amanda Ronconi is an amazing narrator!

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

    Amanda Ronconi is awesome! She brings these terrific characters to life. I love the accent she gives Cal!


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

    Cal's relationship with his girls is so sweet. Mr. Big and Bad is so cute when he's in protective mode.

    "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.
