In the next book in Molly Harper's Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Libby (a widow turned vampire) struggles with her transition and finds out it sucks to be the only vampire member of the PTA....
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's not about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws. On top of post-turning transition issues, like being ignored at PTA meetings and other mothers rejecting her son's invitations for sleepovers, Libby must deal with her father-in-law's attempts to declare her an unfit mother, her growing feelings for Wade - a tattooed redneck single dad she met while hiding in a closet at Back to School Night - and the return of her sire, who hasn't stopped thinking about brave, snarky Libby since he turned her. With the help of her new vampire circle, Libby negotiates this unfamiliar quagmire of legal troubles, parental duties, relationships, and, as always in Harper's distinct, comedic novels, "characters you can't help but fall in love with" (RT Book Reviews).

Nothing like a good book to get you up and moving on a cold winter morning!
Funny, esay listening!
It's a new and diffrent character. I like the fact that Lacey hasn't been referred to before, we don't have any pre-concived ideas as to who and what she is like. There are a few twists and a whole new idea explored about someone being 'changed'.
The big foot party. I can just imagine two little boys getting a glimpse of this mythical creature and being both awed and terrified.
It's a small and fairly irrelevant scene but when no one shows up to the party, i was so sad for both mum and son and hoped someone would help, and in true half moon hollow style - they do!
Like i said it is an easy book to listen to, it's not the most gripping of all the stories by Molly Harper write well and Amanda Ronconi narration brings it to life. Not disappointed.
The narrator of the book and Molly Harper's ability to always make me laugh out loud
Makes its fun book to listen to
Yes. I have listened to most of her books. Amanda Ronconi is excellent as the narrator. This feature of an audiobook cannot be underestimated.
Yes - particularly anything related to Half Moon Hollow. Her sense of humour and twisted look at modern day life is enjoyable.
The scene shopping for school supplies was memorable. The favourite has to be the bigfoot scene.
Yes, but only because I'm already interested in the world that has been created and can be sustained on appearances from Jane Jameson and friends. If I didn't have that to keep me listening, I might have found this book a little less riveting than others.
I generally like the Molly Harper Half Moon Hollow books. The series of 4 novels about Jane Jameson are worth a listen. The concept is creative and well thought through. This book was no exception - the main character's rationale for becoming a vampire is believable and the interactions with Jane Jameson and crew are always a joy - really, you read it for Jane's appearances. However, the episodes of this book read like a series of short stories about the main character patched together. Some of the plot elements felt like they could have benefited from longer development - like the sire tension and the death threats. While they were all quite good, I didn't have the same commitment to the main character.
Loves fantasy and sci-fi books, particularly vampires, werewolves and magic. Totally in love with Jamie Fraser (Outlander) since my teens!
I love Molly Harper's Half Moon Hollow series and this is another great instalment. We get to meet some new characters as well as catching up with old friends. These books are a great blend of humour, romance and the supernatural and well worth reading/listening.
I love all of Amanda Ronconi's performances and characterisations. She is one of a relatively small number of narrators who seem to get things right every time. I love the fact that her voices are so consistent and that you can recognise characters, who you may not have heard speak for a couple of books, instantly when they reappear.
I would recommend this series to anyone who likes light-hearted and humorous romance tales with a sprinkling of supernatural magic. It's best to start with the Jane Jameson series and then move on to the Half Moon Hollow continuation. Molly Harper's separate (but linked) werewolf series is also a must have. I am just starting on the Bluegrass series too :)
The whole series is brilliant, especially worth listening to on audiobook.
Fabulous voice, great with humour
Finally, I got to read the latest instalment of the series HalfMoon Hollow, or should I say listen to. I waited the extra time for the audio book and I was not disappointed. It was a blend of the usual sweet, romantic, sad, funny and sexy that I’m becoming very used to with Molly Harper, but it still managed to bring something new to the series. Wade’s character was particularly attractive, and I thoroughly enjoyed the book/audio.
This book is really dull. Libby is an irritating character that just annoyed me from the start. All she does is whine. She's also a bit of a tart. I listen for 6 hours hoping the story would go somewhere but to be honest this was like reading the diary of any single mother. Dull and tedious. The narrator was okay.
A middle aged woman who hates running & uses audio books to drown out her mind screaming for mercy.
I love Molly Harper.....my favourite author in the world so be warned this is going to be bias. This has all the characters from The Hollow that you love plus new ones. Not as much 'romance & hot bits' as some of the other stories but it works. I can't help thinking how will Libby's & Wades romance work out 'long term' so for me I would have liked closure. That is me being picky & is no reflection of the ending. This one is going on my forever keeping list.
"I absolutely love the series"
I love Molly Harper her books are really good and I love half-moon hollow series I love how she combines other people from other books so that just carries on and they're very interesting and my family is from Kentucky and everyplace she mentions in this book I've been because my families from around there and these people sound exactly like the people there and that's what I love so much about her books
"Loved this book!"
I found this book so cute and funny. The interaction between the kids and the adults had me laughing out loud. I always look forward to Molly's books and I wasn't disappointed.
"Another Fun Story"
Molly Harper does not disappoint with this latest addition to her vampire books. This was another easy listen with a newly turned mother, vindictive in-laws, Jane Jameson, Dick Cheney, PTA moms, and other assorted characters. I have to confess, I listened in one long day. It was funny, it was sad, it was well worth the credit. Now, how long until we get another book from Molly Harper?
this book had me laughing out loud on many occasions so Social Warning may not want to listen to in public cuz that can lead to some awkward situations
Love Half-Moon Hallow! If you are looking for a laugh out loud book then this is the series for you but start back with the Jane Jameson books!
"Undead Mom is Unexpected Delight"
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yes i would listen again and again. This book as all other Molly Harper's books really keep me entertained.
The Lady is a Vamp by Lyndsey Sands. This is a story about a parent who would do what is needed to help their child. This book was about a father who wanted to save his dying child and chose kidnap a vampire to have her changed to save her.
when Libby first awoke as a vampire and met Jane and Dick. Jane begins to get on to her for advertising for someone to change her into a vampire.
My mom is a vampire
As always, Molly Harper did not disappoint. Each time i read one of these stories i know i am going to get my laugh of the day. Poor Libby she has to face all types of problems after her change. Her in laws trying to take her son, someone trying to kill her, meeting her sire(who she is supposed to stay away from), meeting Wade( a single father), dealing with the school,PTA and finally meeting her father whom she has never known. Amanda Ronconi brings the characters to life. She does a great job in her narration.
"I love your sassy mouth!"
I didn't read the book, only listened to the audio version
Wade, I just loved that he was just himself. He was a man ALL man.
I always love Dick Cheney. I've loved his character from the very beginning.
The reason she decided to get turned.
Full of humor and a great cast of characters, this is my favorite of this series.
"MOLLY AND AMANDA DO IT AGAIN!!!"
It was hilarious!!! I loved it...I did not want to put it down!!!
ALL OF IT!!! I love Half Moon Hollow!!! I love the crew...and it is always a pleasure to have more of them...and I love Libby as a new edition!!!!
She is Fantastic!!!! I could not imagine a Molly Harper book without her!!!
I really appreciated how Libby made the decision to become a vampire..I think it was very selfless....I hated how people said she was selfish...how can anyone say what they would do in her position?
I was thrilled to get this book, and could not put it down! I love the Molly/Amanda combo and did not expect anything less than perfection...and guess what? THIS WAS GOLDEN!!
Libby is very Ill...she has cancer, and is a widow...she has a little boy and does not want her in laws raising him...so she makes the decision to become a vampire by placing an online ad...HOW COULD THIS NOT BE FUNNY??? Loved the appearance of the Half Moon Hollow crew and loved everything about this laugh out loud awesome listen!!!!
"Always love Amanda Ranconi"
I have read all of Molly Harper's books. This one didn't seem to be as well thought out as her usual work. Looking forward to the next book!!
