In Molly Harper's witty new paranormal romance, a rare-book expert is delivering a package to Half-Moon Hollow when her plane goes down, and a sexy vampire comes to her rescue. He's clearly got ulterior motives, but does he want to date her...or devour her?
Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Whitfield's job description. You know what isn't? Protecting her precious cargo from midflight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire. Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Possibly forever.
Fortunately, Anna's dashing fanged companion, Finn Palmeroy, helps her fend off the attack but not before their plane crash-lands in the forest hundreds of miles from civilization. Great, now she's stranded with a priceless tome and a rakish vampire whose bedtime is fast approaching. Why does everyone want this book so badly, anyway? Anna just wants to get it to Jane before Finn decides to turn her into dinner - or sweep her off her feet.
Okay, the second option is really tempting. But they're not out of the woods yet....

I love these books by Molly Harper and so well narrated by Amanda Ronconi. Neurotic heroines and bad boys with a good seasoning of humour- win win for me
This is not my favorite of the Halfmoon Hollow series but it is still a fun listen.
My favourite bit is when Jane has a spat with an old lady hotel keeper.
I love love love love love Jane! She will always be the heart and soul of these books, and Amanda simply brings her to life (forgive the pun)
It is one of those book where I can't help myself for laughing out loud!
I am a Wife, a Mum and a Grandma. I am also strong willed and wilfil at times. I have worked all my life and drempt for wining the lottery
As with all Molly Harper books this story is riddled with humour, not belly laughs but a definite smile. The female lead, Anna, is neurotic and Finn, is a roguish of a vampire who falls for our heroine. Jane Jameson Nightingale turns up about three quarters way though the story. Overall a good but not excellent listen. I will be buying the next in the series when it appears.
Mollys books never disappoint! An easy, enjoyable listen from start to finish. I love the way she always brings in characters from her other books.
The only downside is that it was over too quickly!
Really enjoyed this book! I loved the character of Anna, she was pretty awesome. Nice to see Finn find someone that accepts him for him and makes him genuinely want to be a better man! Can't wait for the next in this series!
Not really. The storyline as very predictable and very similar to previous plots in this series
Excellent performance as usual
Yes definitely to add more depth to the characters
Moly Harper is usually very good and this storey falls short of the expected standard
I love this series and this book was another good installment, although by no means the best so far. I liked the characters but the story line was rather predictable and you could see what was coming way before it happened. There was also a serious continuity issue near the end which surprised me coming from this author. That said, this was still and enjoyable, light-hearted book which was easy to listen to and enjoy. Worth a listen.
I love Molly Harper's books but I found this one hard to get into, whereas normally I am gripped and can't stop listening. I can't really put my finger on what I didn't like about this book. I just couldn't picture it in my head.
A middle aged woman who hates running & uses audio books to drown out her mind screaming for mercy.
I love Molly Harper ....thought I would put that out there before I continue so you know that I am going to gush about this new release.
Molly Harper is my favourite author. Her books are funny (but not in a silly childish way), entertaining & fast paced. No boring over describing, no annoying characters, no cringe worthy scenes.
I have loved all of her books but this is probably my favourite. Perhaps because I see a bit of Anna in myself (anxiety over thinking over achieving) or it could be that it is just a really great story.
Anna confronts her worst fears & finds love, friends , a backbone , pine needle madness, employee of the year Ernie, Possums & lots of paranormals along the way.
I won't spoil it by telling you the story...just that this is a great book (audio is pretty special to) & well worth the money.
I love Molly Harper's work, I honestly can't get enough of her books. They are well written, funny and totally engrossing. You should definitely give this book a listen! Can't wait for more!
"MOLLY+AMANDA=FUNNY AND FABULOUS!!!"
Fun, entertaining and awesome!
Anna!!! she is super funny...her phobias and fears just add to her quirky, and charming personality!
Right after the crash..I swear I bust out laughing!
Yes it was!
I love all of Molly Harper's work, I know I can always expect a good story, clever dialogue and funny situations...this book did not disappoint! If you like this series, this is a must listen...super great addition, with a little bit different storyline..but as always HIGHLY ENTERTAINING, And I completely recommend!!!
"Another great adventure"
this book is about a paranoid, germophobic book lover. She boards a small plane to take a rare old book to Jane Jameson in Half Moon Hollow. She wipes down the seats and vents to prevent germs and worried about the plane. There is another passenger who is a vampire aboard also. When the pilot breaks the controls on the plane and threatens Anna to get the book she refuses. The plane is going down and while she banters with the pilot the vampire, Finn just sits there and does nothing. Finally he does help and the pilot jumps out and leaves them with the plane going down. Anna wants to strap in and brace for the crash but Finn has other ideas and grabs her and jumps out of the plane. Now they are lost in the wilderness with no working phones etc. Will they get out alive? Will Jane get her book or will someone else take it.
I love this series and this book did not disappoint.
"loved it! "
Molly does it again! I definitely recommend this book and all of Molly's books. The dialogue is fantastic. Narration fantastic, as always. Great plot and some great new characters. And don't forget you get to see Jane again.
"Another Awesome Story and Adventure!"
Molly does it again! She is such an accomplished writer whose story's are not just entertaining but well balanced with the perfect mix of adventure, romance and humor. Each story is unique, and the romance between the H/h is always sweet and sexy.
Where the Wild Things Bite is another well written, captivating plot with great characters. Anna's has a lot of fears, she a germ-phobic, anxiety prone, fears flying, loves statics, socially challenged, and hysterically babbles when she's nervous. It's amazing she even agreed to fly to Half Moon Hallow to deliver the rare book to Jane Jameson. However, she is dedicated and determine to see the book is safely delivered. Her plans for a safe quick trip go haywire, when she is sky high, and the pilot's attempt to steal the book is foiled, and he parachutes out the plan leaving her, and her annoying passenger to fend for themselves.
Luckily or not so lucky, the other passenger is a vampire named Finn whose handsome, smart, charismatic, and has stunning chocolate eyes. He takes matters into his on hands and saves Anna by jumping off the plan, and nearly gives her a heart attack in the process. They find themselves stranded in the wilderness, and this is where their wild adventure begins. I LOVED this story, and characters! It was AWESOME!
Amanda Ronconi's performance ROCKS! She always does a fantastic job on the characters, and emotions. I especially loved how she delivered all the sassy, snarky dialogue. Kudos Amanda on another awesome performance!
"3rd time is two too many - get over it already!"
Starting to get annoyed with beautiful, charming female characters who carry around so many "Mommy Issues." This has to be at least the third book Ms Harper has written with this same story line and that's two too many. Having an opossum appear in every story is funny; having your main character thinking about all of the ways their mother has warped them isn't.
For it's genre, this is a cute, sexy, fast read that doesn't overdo the vampire element. It cured me, for now anyway, of hating all thing vampire. I recommend it as 4 stars if you like snarky humor with silly paranormal backdrops. It was just what I needed at the moment.
Loved it. This entire series is very good. Please read n order, starting with the Jane Jameson series They all go together.
As always with Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, I am Amazingly-delighted. I enjoyed Where the Wild Things Bite and am not afraid to shout it from the rooftops!
"Will put you off camping ..."
Molly Harper is always a good read. This story does not disappoint. Great pacing with the touch of snark that her readers have come to expect. Worth the credit.
"Disappointing because Molly Harper is usually hilarious & smart"
Characters & relationships were much less developed than what I have come to expect from Molly Harper. Humor was much less witty than other half moon hollow books... I also though that the plot relied to heavily on action and didn't allow for the fantastic relationship development and witty banter I have come to associate with Molly Harper 's books... Hope next one allows for more time spent with more half moon hollow characters so we can see how their relationships have developed. Much preferred Harper's recent short story, Big Vamp on Campus.
