    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Not a Holiday Story"

    STORY - As you might suspect, Christmas Moon is not a cute holiday story. (I listened to it in June). It does take place at Christmastime so you could stretch to say it's a holiday listen, but it's definitely not warm and fuzzy. It is, instead, a short, easy-listening vampire whodunnit. I have not gone through this series consecutively from the beginning and don't know the details of the original attack which "turned" Samantha, but this book seems to cast a new light onto what actually might have happened. The plot line is not complicated, but it was enjoyable and held my interest. It comes to a complete conclusion, so I would consider it a standalone book.

    NARRATOR - I wish Ms. Pearlman would narrate a lot more books in the supernatural genre. Her voice is relatively low and somewhat sultry, and she reads a bit slower than many female narrators. The result is the book had a little more of a mysterious feel to it. In my opinion, some readers are just too "peppy" for the type of book they're reading.

    OVERALL - Short, easy vampre mystery, but don't expect a complicated plot.

    "Love this series just gets better"
    Where does Christmas Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First Dina Perlman is wonderful as narrator, I hope they don't change. Even though the book was short if you've been following the series it is an important link to the next book in the series. Samantha Moon is getting to be a very powerful vampire, and you will see in book 5 just how that manifests. Start with book one, each book gets better. I can't wait for book 6.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Samantha and Det. Sherbet really work well together


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

    Dina Pearlman is wonderful in all her narrations and I especially enjoy her in this series


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

    "Not your every day Soccer Mom"


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that Dina Pearlman will continue to narrate this series, she brings so much personality to each character.

    "Too short"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you love the series, you will like this but be disappointed with the length. It is too short and there doesn't seem to be anything in it that will be missed if you don't buy it.

    "Amazon/Audible book"
    Would you try another book from J. R. Rain and/or Dina Pearlman?

    Yes.


    Do you think Christmas Moon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Just seemed to be a novella in between two books of the regular series.

    "A Short Interlude"
    Any additional comments?

    A quick short story that moved along nicely. Samantha seems to have no end to supernatural men who have fallen in love with her.
