Publisher's Summary

Mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. Six years ago, federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.
Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

A Nice Surprise

I thought I would try some of Audible's productions and saw that Mr. Rain was a #1 Kindle book seller, so I thought I would give him a try. I was not disappointed. This has a little bit of a different spin on the vampire/werewolf supernatural genre. First Mrs. Moon doesn't (usually) drink human blood. Second, she tries to keep up appearances as a human by even going so far as to slather on sunscreen and a hat and shades so she can pick up her kids from school. Third, she is a PI (former Federal Agent for HUD) and doesn't want to become a killer, like a lot of legends have portrayed many vampires. Only a few people close to her even know the truth about her "skin disease." This series really humanizes many aspects of the supernatural and how they are coping with their "condition," and how they carry on relationships. Whether they consider themselves still one of "God's children" or not; if they think they, themselves, are good or bad.

The books are not very long, compared to some, but there is a lot of ground covered. It will be interesting to see the continued character development in the next installments of this series. I appreciate Audible taking a chance with this author and would probably enjoy some of his other books in audio format as well. Too bad my library doesn't carry his books.

Dina Pearlman does an outstanding job in her reading of this work.

Good Read\Listen

Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Dance to be better than the print version?

Don't know never read the paper version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kingsley - I can see lots of story to come

What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

Enjoyed her performance - felt the characters pain etc.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I lost a tear when the family separated - I know it's a girl thing but nobody would separate me from my family.

Any additional comments?

New author to me - I hope that the rest of the series is as good as this one.

A struggle but interesting premise

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I very much struggled through this book. I picked it up on a whim as it sounded interesting but in the end I found the character very steriotypical vampire with no development on the idea. The constant reminders, within a few sentences, of many things with a lot of repetitions of themes or her thoughts throughout the book made me rather frustrated at times. Also the over description of the men made her seem sex craved. The constant reminder of her icy skin or the unnecessary over description of something that had happened earlier made it a hard going read. Sad as it seemed a promising idea. A lot going on without much depth put into most of it. Seemed to jump theme to theme. I will keep going with the series mainly only as the cliffhangers are infuriating.
