Join Half-Moon Hollow's favorite couple for a trip down memory lane - to a time when Mr. Wainwright was newly dead, Jane Jameson was a newbie vampire, and a budding paranormal romance was not yet uncorked....
Half-Moon Hollow's supernatural social event of the season - Zeb's Titanic-themed werewolf wedding - is coming up, and Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!) needs a date. But Andrea's had enough of clever, handsome, and rakish to last a lifetime, and Dick Cheney is certainly not the sort of man you bring home to mom (not that Andrea's deadist parents are speaking to her ever since she dropped out of college and became a blood surrogate). Shameless, relentless, roguish, with a Stetson-worthy swagger, a naughty sparkle in his eyes, and a constant smirk - oh, and fangs - no, Dick is the last person (er...vampire) Andrea wants to date.
But the infuriatingly irresistible man who lives quietly on the edge of a criminal underworld knows exactly what he wants, and once he surprises Andrea with a thrilling hot and dirty kiss behind the paranormal bookshop, she knows what she wants too: Dick. All it takes to ignite their unconventional courtship is a near-undeath experience that confronts Dick with a choice between turning Andrea, losing her forever, or tapping in to his countless shady resources.

A middle aged woman who hates running & uses audio books to drown out her mind screaming for mercy.
I could scream as I am so disappointed. I have been walking around with my headphones on with NOTHING coming out for the last 30 minutes...that is how shocked & disappointed I am.
Why I hear you ask........louder please I did not hear!
It is too short. After waiting for YEARS to hear the Dick & Andrea story ...it is too short. It is beautifully written ...it is so sweet & tender BUT ...where is the rest of it. The bit where Andrea gets turned...the wedding .....ARHHHHHH ......where is it?????? For that reason I am actually marking down a Molly Harper book. I will now go & quietly sob...my whole day ruined.
The tease where you wonder if Andrea's has been turned vampire or not after the botched feeding.
When Andrea first meets Dick Cheney she doesn’t take him or his continual flirting seriously; how could she when he was wearing t-shirts with obscene and inappropriate designs on? She soon sees a different side to him and when he saves her from certain death, and not the undead kind, she realises that he’s not too bad after all.
This little novella explains how Dick and Andrea get together, and it’s a sweet little addition to the series. Dick is one of the key players in Half-Moon Hollow, and the story adds to his overall bio. I love all of Molly Harper’s work and this was no exception; there is an author/reader chemistry and she taps it every time.
Loved this, it was fun getting Andrea's POV and seeing that other side of Dick Cheney (the vampire, not the president! Lol!). Really hoping for more little Half-Moon Hollow snippets, especially with these characters!
"love the entire half moon hollow series!"
I loved it! not long enough...I can't wait until the next install. keep them coming.
"LOVED ANDREA'S BACK STORY!"
Yep! Love all of Molly's work!
That we got Andrea's back story...it was really good...just wish it was longer!
Amanda is awesome! Cant imagine a Molly Harper book without her!
I did laugh! I always do with the Molly/Amanda combo!
I love Molly Harper's writing! And I loved that we got a backstory on Andrea...and the beginning of her and Dick's relationship...this is a wonderful series and I can not wait for the next one!!! :)
"Only Molly Harper can make me love Dick Cheney!"
I love Dick Cheney so much and this just adds to my love for him from Molly Harper's other Half Moon Hollow books. I just wish it was longer honestly I could hear about Dick and Andrea all day but sadly this is only 2 hours. It was really great to see why Andrea caved and also why she had her walls up with Dick in the first place. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read any Molly Harper books and also any one who likes a short quirky romance. I am also so glad that Amanda Ronconi kept Andrea's voice the same in all the books.
"i love molly harper and Amanda Ronconi ."
greatness again from Harper and Ronconi...awesome writing is nothing in an audio book without a talented narrator. ..the duo have done it again.
"Great addition to the Jane Jamison/Half-moon Hollo"
This was a great addition to the Jane Jamison/Half-moon Hollow stories. It's basically just a short look into Dick and Andrea's courtship...shedding some light on how he got her to consider going out with him. It also gives a bit more of a view into Andrea and Dick (individually and together) which I liked. It was an interesting and rather sweet exert and I enjoyed it greatly. This short is great but probably not going to mean much to those that haven't read either series since they wont know the characters or where this fits in. I'd definitely recommend it to people that follow the Half-moon Hollow or Jane Jamison series. :D
"Just want it to be longer"
I was expecting Molly Harper to look closer at the event surrounding book 3, where most of the drama happens with Andrea but instead she fleshed out her earlier encounters with Dick
that being said Amanda Ronconi is my favorite proformer and I feel like she gets the jokes and helps you understand with her inflection and pauses just make it
"If you want a good laugh"
I absolutely would. It has likeable characters, a good storyline and lots of humor
When Dick saves Andrea after the "feeding gone wrong"
She nails the characters personalities every time :)
I laughed out loud several times
Great addition to the series..
Yes, I enjoyed the characters and the narration immensely. It answered a lot of questions as to why these particular characters were together.
I'm going to have to listen to the ENTIRE series again, after listening to this because I think I missed a lot of nuances about Dick...he is more of an old-fashioned gentleman than I gave him credit for.
The only reason I didn't give this five stars was because of the abrupt ending. I really enjoyed the book.
Hilarious, Snarky, Brilliant
When Dick is taking care of Andrea and showing her a different side of him that she didn't know existed because SHE wasn't giving him a chance to show it.
An added layer to the characters!
OMG… what have I been missing!?!?! From the very beginning of this novella, I knew what readers were talking about when they mentioned the humor author Molly Harper includes and the fantastic characters she writes! While this is the first time I listen to an audio book of Molly’s books, it’s not going to be the last. There is a perfect partnership between the narrator and the story Molly has written. This is rare and when it occurs, it’s magical!
The characters are a blast! They each bring their own sense of humor and sarcasm to the party, so to say yet have a depth to them that you can find is relatable. Andrea is the heroine who is trying to fight the ever increasing attraction to the hero who is a vampire named Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!)! And yes, that is exactly how he is introduced! LOL! There is a very good reason why she’s trying to stay away from Dick and it’s more than just what the blurb hints at. Of course, there is also way more to Dick than what is hint in the blurb as well as what Andrea thinks she knows about him.
There are several moments throughout the story that have you laughing out loud, so I’d suggest not eating or drinking while listening/reading to this (or most of Molly’s) book. As I said, this is the first of hers I’ve read… it can be read as a standalone, but I’m itching to go back to the beginning and catch up on the series and get to know the cast of characters. I also want more DICK!! LOL!
Narrator’s Review: Amanda was awesome! She provided each of the characters with their own unique voices and tones! You knew exactly who was speaking and when it was the narration vs. a character. She is definitely a narrator that I will follow going forward.
"What an excellent story, however..."
Ah Molly Harper we love you, and for those who don't: Don't read this.
This is a bit of fun for fans who can't stop rereading the Half-Moon Hollow series.
It is very short and could have gone on to fill a book. I hope she does write more on Andrea, but I understand if there is only so much recapping of a story we already know that can be revitalised.
Fangs for the Memories indeed.
I just loved hearing the story again.
