Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year.
The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.
Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.
After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn't know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.
Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the arranged setup to make his overbearing grandmother happy. In 30 days, whatever bridezilla shows up at his door will be escorted right back out. His past means love is no longer an option. Not if the woman's going to have a future. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.
Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets....

Loved It!....... It was Clean, Funny, and Sweet!

What made the experience of listening to The Vampire's Mail Order Bride the most enjoyable?

There are three things I really liked about this story.

1. The characters! I loved how both the main and supporting characters were developed. You also got a glimpse of the different characters that will be coming up in future stories.

2. Nocturne Falls - Halloween all year long! I loved this town and all the creative shops and holiday's.

3. The Plot - A funny light romance!

What about B.J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

B.J. Harrison performance was hands down one of the best I've listened to. I loved how each character had their own voice and accent and was easily distinguishable between the characters. He was also did a great job projecting inflection into the tone of the characters throughout the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed, Laughed, and Laughed! :-)

I loved Delaney and her inter thoughts, her random chocolate facts, and her cat "Captain Underpants."

Any additional comments?

This was a fun story to listen to; it was clean, funny, and well written. I could easily listen to this story again and again!

So much fun!

What did you love best about The Vampire's Mail Order Bride?

I really enjoyed the character development of the protagonists; you feel like you're part of their world and want to hang out with them.

What other book might you compare The Vampire's Mail Order Bride to and why?

The book is really one of a kind (I mean it's like Halloween year round!), but if I had to compare I'd say it's maybe a bit like the Half-Moon Hollow series by Molly Harper

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I read the book and listened to it, so hearing B.J. Harrison lend voices to the characters was an added bonus. He has a real talent for inflection and you feel as if each character has his or own voice. I'll admit I was skeptical about the choice of narrator at first, but I was so wrong!

Any additional comments?

Take a chance, use a credit, and listen to this book... it's light, fun, and entertaining! I loved this first book, and the other books in the series are wonderful also. I anxiously await more from Nocturn Falls.

Some of Katie Mcallister books same kind of humor and adventure.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book! It was my first time reading anything by this author and I loved it. The characters were easy to love and the story as engaging! I didn't want to put it down! I will definitely be picking up the next in the series when it comes out! I love the idea of Nocturne Falls, it sounds like an awesome place to live! Loved the audiobook of the novel as well, I adored hearing Hugh's British nobility accent!
