Once again this audiobook should come with disclaimers about NOT eating or drinking while listening!<br/><br/>As always Molly Harper brings her razor sharp wit and sense of humor to her stories. With the help of Amanda Ronconi the voices of Iris, Cal, and Gigi come blasting into life!<br/><br/>Since I hate reviews that give too much away as far as the plot goes, I will say that having familiar Half Moon Hollow characters making guest appearances was like coming home!<br/><br/>I wish Molly Harper would write more for Iris and Cal because I could see some amazing adventures with these guys!<br/>

What did you love best about The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?
I love Harper's writing it sounds like me and my friends hanging out if Vampires were real of course. I love the banter between her characters and all the snark.
What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators. She is amazing with her voice changes for each character and her line delivery is fantastic. The combination between Harper's humor and Ronconi's delivery has me laughing out loud on the train which can be a little embarrassing but worth it.
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend all of Molly Harper's books I must say and this one is right up there with the rest of them.

I was pleasantly surprised with Molly Harper's latest, The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires.
I've read all her work (and I love Amanda Ronconi as her narrator) but generally felt that all her main characters across different books were largely the same. I had expected this book to be the same as the last one, Driving Mr Dead, since the premise is very similar, and was delighted to see that it was not only different, but also much more substantial, with well thought-out and fleshed out characters.
As per usual, the main point of the book is humour and romance, and the plot isn't that thrilling if you're not into botany but mostly serves as a mechanism to facilitate trials and opportunities for the romance to develop. At times the humour seems like an unrealistic reaction and detracts from a sense of peril, but since I don't think this is a genre of books which is supposed to be taken very seriously, it didn't ruin my experience.
The story progresses at a good pace and kept me interested all the way through.
The highpoint of the book for me was the sexy-evil-bad-guy scenes, even though I'm probably not supposed to cheer for him.
