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.

Her books are a reliable source of diversion. They have humor, self deprecating humor, a romance, little adventure and a happy romance end. Great diversion from household chores.
Her books are what they are, reliable. If you want depth and enveloping complex plot you go to Jeanine Frost or Deborah Harkness. For simple joy these books are consistent.
She does the story with a consistant irreverent vehemence that is un paralleled. I have to wonder what Tavia Gilbert or Jennifer Ikeda could bring???
Simple pleasures, thank you.
I have not read the print version but I did enjoy the audio version.
Ophelia, local vampire council leader. She's not the vampire you were expecting and I wanted to know more about her.
I am listening to The "Undead in my Bed" sublet now, it is very similar and has many of the same characters. I see a trend-strong independent woman falls for a vampire who somehow needs her help.
I loved the part when vampire Cal is grilling teenage Gigi's date. Also, there is a steamy scene when Iris and Cal find themselves in danger.
This story reminds me of True Blood (based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels) but funnier and with less brooding. One thing I must say-this southern gal has to call BS on some of these characters but I think that may be how the narrator voices them. I looked it up- she's from New York.
This book and other books by Molly Harper are among my favorites due to the creative antics and spontanous laugh out loud moments.
Iris for her need to cope with life's crazy moments by digging into her emergency candy stashes that she has placed everywhere.
Yes, but I don't want to give away any spoilers.
I love Amanda's performance and with Molly's writing, it's just such a fun and easy listen!
Her narration is superb! She has inflections for everything, and it just really draws you in.
I'm pretty sure I'll be getting ALL audiobook written by Molly Harper with Amanda's narration!
Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi are a sinch duo to make me smile and laugh out loud, a lot. When I need cheering up, it seems my first choice is this pair.
That was the case here, when I was transported to Half-Moon Hollow and heard the hillarity begin.
I enjoyed listening to it. Did not wanna put it down.
Iris, cause she always talked back and was not afraid to.
Enjoyed all the different characters she made. She really brought the book to life. I think they make a great team.
Yes. I only took one break in listening to it and that was because I was busy with my family that evening. Otherwise I would have listened all the way thru.
Light hearted story. Loved that vampires have come "out of the coffin" and are main streaming with humans. Had to continue with other books in the series which are just as entertaining.
Loved the reader, This was my first experience with Amanda as the reader. She was a perfect Jane.
I listen to my audiobooks while I am driving. Listening to Molly Harper's books while driving sometimes can be dangerous because I sometimes begin laughing so much that I am in danger of driving off of the road. At the very least, anyone who might pass me probably wonders whether or not if I am sane. My daughter listens to the books while she is running or walking. She says people probably believe her to be a bit strange because she is giggling as she runs. I want more.
I have never before listened to any of Amanda Ronconi's performances other than on the Molly Harper books. I would enjoy hearing her read other books.
This book has all of my favorite attributes... its romantic, its funny and it has an interesting story line. I would definately purchase this one again, well worth my credit.
I love Molly Harper and her quirky sense of humor. She never fails to entertain. This was a wonderful, fun story--fast moving with twist and turns to keep the reader on their toes. It was a good mystery and I felt like the characters were believable and fun to watch interact with each other. I've read several thing by Ms. Harper and will continue to read her offerings. She never fails to make my day brighter. Keep up the good work.
