Publisher's Summary

Mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. Six years ago, federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.

Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

Blood money: listen to more in the Vampire for Hire series.

    "Good Series."

    I listened to the first four books of this series offered here and really enjoyed them. Samantha Moon is trying very hard to live in her world of children, husband and work as normally as she can while dealing vampirism too.

    Im really interested in reading even more and am looking forward to seeing if the 5th book of the series Vampire Dawn will be in audio soon.

    "Very interesting series with High Enjoyment Value"
    Would you listen to Moon Dance again? Why?

    Yes. Supremely engaging story and characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They are all interesting


    Any additional comments?

    Wish they'd combine the stories into longer stories. Too short... if they weren't so interesting I'd probably passed them by.

    Story
    "Added twists for vamp tales"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. I liked the author's fresh approach and imaginative employment of a vampire's abilities together with some of the drawbacks. Just how would you cope with being a single parent of a non-vampire child in this situation?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Dance?

    The leap from a tall building was a suspenseful moment.


    What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is one top-class reader. She copes with the author's eccentric grammar without missing a beat, and conveys the emotions of the characters impeccably. I'd enjoy listening to her again.


    Could you see Moon Dance being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It's a possibility, after all, 'Moonlight' was a very entertaining series.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be interested in seeing this writer develop.

    "Gaps"
    What would have made Moon Dance better?

    I felt as if the story was disconnected and the lore changed as the book went on. The characters were a bit narrow and not very well done.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. Rain again?

    I don't think I will.

    "Enjoyed, but . . ."
    Where does Moon Dance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    3


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

    The fact that she is living a somewhat normal life w/2 kids


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

    No but she is very good


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book but would have loved some background. The book starts 6 years after the main character has been attacked and that is all we know. A little more detail on Who, what, when and where would have been nice.
