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.

I liked all the characters. Everyone's part, big or small, was excellently written, read, and necessary to the story.
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.
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!
High up--I really enjoy the witty banter in Molly Harper's books, despite the highly improbable plot lines
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.
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 :)
funny - suspenseful - erotic
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.
Amanda Ronconi reads this story so well, I'm definately going to look out for more of 'her' reads.
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).
My reading and listening tastes are eclectic.
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.
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!
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.
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.
No. Unless she comes up with something better and gets raving reviews first, then maybe I'll read it.
Too fast. And the depiction of the male characters were really bad.
Funny, Sexy, Romantic
I loved the bond that Iris has with her sister Gigi. They stick together no matter what.
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.
Sexy Vampire meets Sexy Human, need I say more?
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!
