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.

    "Funny, sexy, and fun!"
    Would you listen to The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires again? Why?

    Yes! I made my fiance get this, and I have re-listened to parts of it with him and still enjoy hearing the story over again. It's humorous moments make me laugh even after listening to it a second time.


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

    I did after reading this book, and she does equally well for both performances. I love the different voices she uses for her characters, and her normal speaking voice isn't grating, annoying, or too dry like a couple others that I've come across. She is expressive and down to earth.


    Any additional comments?

    I own a pet care company, and I am on the road or out walking animals all the time, and I was looking for something that would keep my attention and be positive and fun. This fit the bill! I laughed out loud constantly and loved the suspense and fun banter and tension between the two main characters.

    "Another lovely tale from Harper"

    JUST A WARNING. Probably, don't want to listen to this one in a silent office. I was giggling all day long. I loved the flow of the book, expertly paced... and Amanda Ronconi - love her!

    "Molly Harper does it again..."

    The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampiers is another wonderful and funny book by Molly Harper.
    Iris is very happy with her job as a daytime vampire concierge, until she falls for Cal.... literally.
    The end may be predictiable, but getting there is always fun.
    I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys to laugh out loud while reading.

    "Loved it"

    It was good to have a different character and while this book is great as a stand alone book, it was cute to have the cross references with all Molly Harpers other books. As always a fast paced, action book with the gutsy female characters always falling into trouble but falling in love at the end. a good story is where I look for excuses to plug my headphones in. thanks again Ms Harper on a job well done.

    GiGi because she that combination of kid and grown-up all older teens seem to be.

    Different sounding voices for each character

    "Fun, lively ride!"
    What did you love best about The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    The comedy and the attitude of the characters, especially the primaries. I bought this book quickly...found myself on a 30 hour road trip with everyone else sleeping. I bought this on a whim to try something different and really enjoyed it. Driving time flew by and I wish I could jump right into the next book!


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She is a great choice for this character. I would like to read more with these two characters and have already looked into other books by this author. I hope Amanda reads those as well. Her voice fit very well with the snarky attitude of the lead, and I found myself lost in the story as if I was watching a movie.


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

    "moved me?", no....not that kind of book. This was an all out, action packed, romantic leaning, fun read for anyone. Lots of comedy, lots of rooting for the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good introductory book for readers interested in the modern vampire genera. Kind of a "vampire lite" read. Lots of fun! I couldn't wait to get back to it and was sorry when it was finished.

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

    a fun book kept you glued to the end with not totally realising the bad guy till the end.


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

    i compare the book to the same author ,all her books are fun to listen to and are quirkey.


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

    her voice brings to life the story and the characters she is never dull to listen to.
