Do you want to feel good?
Do you love to laugh?
Do you like reading silly, but heartfelt stories?
If you answered YES to any or all of the questions above, then I hope you've read Molly Harper?! If not then you MUST!
I always have a good time every time I pick up a MHarper book. The plots are always ridiculous, the dialogue is silly, witty, hilarious, and even with all of these often outrageous situations, the books are uproarious! Like you might pee your pants from laughing out loud too much thanks to the quips and crazy reactions of the characters.
THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB is my favorite Half-Moon Hollow novel. Single parent themed books are close to my heart because I am one, so Libby Stratton had my attention from the get-go. A widow dying of cancer and a mom to a smart and rambunctious 5yo, I don't blame Libby for clinging to life and opting to become a vampire. MHarper took on this conundrum gracefully and tastefully. Even if Libby is a vampire, her issues as a single mom is still relatable in that she wants the best for her child, will bend over backwards, call in every favor, will move mountains just to make sure that her son is provided for and not lacking in anything.
And as if being a single baby vampire mom isn't complex enough, try dating a hot, human, single dad, Wade, while you're at it? Wade and Libby's relationship didn't start in the right foot and their antagonistic banter just added to their delicious romantic tension. But the complexity of THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB didn't end with Libby's immediate issues, MHarper went the whole 9 yards with this family-themed Half-Moon Hollow installment with in-law drama, assassination attempts, custody battles, daddy issues, and a slew of other stuff. It's the strongest volume of the series IMO.
FANGS FOR THE MEMORIES is somber, but equally funny and engaging novella. Dick Chaney is one of my favorite characters in Half-Moon Hollow, this dude is the good kind of weird and I always wondered how he managed to snag smart and pretty Andrea. This novella told their love story in 86 pages and I'm glad it's a shorty because I don't think my jaw can take more cringe-worthy moments (and I mean that in the fondest way possible). I mean, Dick is awkward, usually inappropriate, but earnest in his intentions with Andrea. Theirs is a rather clumsy love story, I always have a good time when Dick Chaney is around and this is no exception.
