The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires (Half Moon Hollow #1)

The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires  (Half Moon Hollow #1)
This is a paranormal humorous romance (Rated NC-17)
(Four and a half Stray Hearts)

Book 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 & romance—in the form of her very own stray vampire.
My Review
Sometimes you want to read something that’s not heavy that needs a box of tissues. And that’s what I get with Molly Harper’s books, light, fun, and funny. You’ll still need a box of tissue. But only because you will laugh so hard, you will cry.
What I love about this series and the Jane Jameson one is that there is humor when it comes to vampires and although not a parody, she makes fun of the night walking creatures in a fan girl way.
Iris is a practical fun loving character who does the right thing even when she doesn’t want to which gets her into trouble. She has a straight approach to life which is refreshing. Cal is are reluctant victim, lol, of Iris. No, I’m kidding, but I bet he felt like one at times in the story. No Cal is an old vampire with lots of history and not interested in a relationship with anyone especially a human.
I just love this author and gulp up everything she writes. Don’t like vampires much? She also has a humor series about werewolves. Gotta love her.
Audio Review
Amanda Ronconi always delivers these books with easy. She knows how to deliver a punch line and give the right amount of snark. I love it.
My book boyfriend Cal.
