Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires.

I began to be leary of reading Mercy books wondering what near fatal peril Mercy would be in. This did not start out promising but quickly grabbed my attention and didn't let go. The story kept surprising me and didn't go a predictable route. I'm going to enjoy the re-listen just as much.

Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn't the best idea she'd ever had, but she was desperate - she wasn't about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.

Would you listen to The Single Undead Moms Club again? Why?

This will be a frequent re-listen. I love how the author addresses the problems of being a vampire mom and how the relationships (romantic and friendships) develop between the characters.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Libby is in the school parking lot and finds a motorcycle parked close to her minivan and the motorcycle driver comes out and they have a little tiff. He blames his bad parking on her distracting "I like Big Books" bumper sticker.

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

When Harley runs up to Libby and hugs her. He has no fear that this is a vampire who could kill her. Libby has won him over so completely that he is oblivious of the danger. Or, it could just be that he's six.

Any additional comments?

After Rebound Vampire I had serious doubts about this book. I started having objections as to the sense of a mother turning into a vampire. Then Jane voiced my objections! Then Libby had all the same doubts I did! Thank you Molly Harper for addressing the obvious problems.

After the "romance" between the characters of Rebound, I was so thrilled to see the developing relationship between the characters in this book that it makes sense why they fall for each other and it makes Undead Mom's Club an unexpected delight.
