    One thought on “The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires”

    1. Word on the mean streets (that's , just so you know) is that this book was funny, so I thought, "Okay, I'll bite."("I'll bite" <- see what I did there? It's a vampire book. I'm clever like that)This book is about a candy-addicted lady named Iris who runs daytime errands for creepy vampires. She is also raising her 17 year old sister, Gigi, after their parents died in a car accident. Not an easy task! Raising teenagers is not for the weak. I should know - I've raised three and barely made it o [...]

    2. My interest in a series tends to wane after the second or third book. It's not often that I'll get past the fifth book in a series, but here I am returning to Half Moon Hollow, KY for the sixth time and I'm still feeling the love.I don't know how Molly Harper does it. The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires follows the same basic pattern of all the Jane Jameson / Half Moon Hollow books and, some of her characters - particularly her male characters are cookie cutter similar. But she writes women r [...]

    3. If you're looking for a trope-free human & vampire PNR-This is not it.The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires is about vampire liaison/day-walker/botanist/single parent/small business owner Iris Scanlon. She has a rigid business only policy in dealing with her clients until she signs on new client, Cletus Calix. They get entangled in Vampire Council business, insert (convoluted plot to harm mankind) and (unconvincing villain).2.5 rounded up stars for my enjoyment of the banter between the cha [...]

    4. An entertaining PNR. I found the world this author created very interesting. Ten years ago vampires were outed to society because one vampire, who also happened to be an accounted, wanted to keep his job but HR at his office refused to have him work at night. So he had no other choice but to sue them, telling the court as a vampire he had no choice but to work at night, and so vampires were revealed to the world. I found that very funny ;-D The heroine Iris Scanlon is a daytime vampire concierge [...]

    5. 4 starsThis book nearly had potential of me loving it. This author is seriously talented. Her writing was amazing, the characters quirky and the plot was interesting. Me being the romantic that i am, wished there was more romance and heat between the characters. There was only a low sizzle in my opinion and there was so much potential of these two being my favourite couple. I loved them separately- Iris the human heroine was snarky, independent and i loved that she took care of her 17 year old s [...]

    6. I know I'm on an island with this review because I could have skipped this one. Not her best. I felt like I should read it because it is the first in this series but I did not like these characters as well as the others in this series. It lacked her regular lol humor. It seemed like just when the story started to ramp up, an unnecessary sex scene would pop up out of nowhere and drag it back into sillyville. Amanda Ronconi did her usual good job.

    7. Before starting this I was expecting it to be over the top, cheesy and just silly. Clearly it wasn't as I've rated it 4 stars. Apart from a little bit in the middle that dragged, I loved it. There was just the right amount of humour (mostly between the sisters), the resentful sexual chemistry between the pair was hot and it had enough of a plot to plump the whole thing out.

    8. "The man was just unsettling; there was no other way to put it. I couldn't seem to get my conversational bearings around him. And clearly, he had a negative impact on my decision-making skills, because I'd agreed to cohabitate with someone who was cranky, condescending, and prone to bouts of staggering insensitivity. If I'd wanted that, I'd get a cat."❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖❖ ❖ ❖Meet Iris Scanlon, daytime assistant to the undead. Iris o [...]

    9. I rarely read PNR books so if you are a jaded PNR reader, check out Tash's review. This review is more beneficial for those people who doesn't read much PNR books :) The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires is just like those typical PNR books where the vampire is being massive aloof jerk who salivates for the heroine's warm pulsing body. We usually read about Vampire Kings, Vampire assassin,Vampires who's a part of the council, Vampires who have gone rogue and Vampires who sparkle.*eye roll*The C [...]

    11. 3.5 Stars"The first rule of caring for a stray vampire: Don't tell anyone, you're taking care of a Stray Vampire."Iris Scanlon is the only day time vampire concierge of Half Moon Hollows. She is also raising her sister Gigi, who is quite an obnoxious teenager. She finds her new client Cletus Calix, sprawled on his kitchen floor, poisoned.

    12. A fun, snarky LOL read. Iris is working hard at getting her Vampire concierge business off the ground. She stops to drop of a contract to a new client and instead trips over his body in the kitchen. He has been poisoned but alive. Iris brings Cletus to her house and for an ungodly sum of money takes care of him. She refuses to call him Cletus, because she can't say it with a straight face so she calls him Cam instead. The feelings that he is stirring up in her are free of charge. Cam for his par [...]

    14. Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsThis is the 4th Molly Harper title that I have read and it's official, I'm a fan! I will definitely be checking out her Nice Girls series sooner than later. That being said, The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires is a feel-good-read that's sure to put a smile on your face. Amanda Ronconi's narration is cheerful and bouncy, the how-to tips at the beginning of each chapter are giggle-worthy and Harper's writing is injected with some good ol' fashion Southern charm. If you'r [...]

    15. I can't resist Molly Harper's books. Her humor so exactly fits my own and I like her quirky characters. This book isn't my favorite, but I enjoyed it very much.In this book, Harper branches away from Jane and friends (though they do the occasional bit parts). In this case, we meet Iris Scanlon who is working as something of a concierge for vampires in town--something the older, less-couth vampires call a daywalker. Mostly, she runs errands and shepherds paperwork. She's careful to keep to just t [...]

    16. My Rating: ★★★★★Book Description:Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow’s only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she’d like. Running all their daylight errands—from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg—gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship—and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his k [...]

    17. Iris Scanlon runs a daylight help service for vampires, their every fickle, bizarre and obscure demand she patiently fulfills and asks no questions. It isn't very glamourous but she fills a niche in the business of making money from vampires, and she sticks to a few very strict rules, like never meeting her vampire clients, never being in the vampire neighbourhood when the sun goes down and never inviting them to her home. Of course, after dripping over a poisoned (but very sexy) vampire named C [...]

    18. This was so entertaining! Just the right mix of cheesy romance and UF action. I really loved the characters - Iris was smart and funny, Cal was adorably grumpy and Gigi was the perfect mix of teenage snark and loving sister. Sure it was predictable as hell - you can figure out the main plot points just from the summary but that doesn't mean it wasn't an enjoyable read. If you're looking for a light, funny read to make you feel better (and if you like PNR) this is the book for you.

    19. Wasn't really moved by this story. I think the suburban-soccer-mom type heroine is not so appealing to me. The humour was lacking compared to other stories I've read by this author and the relationship between 'Vampire Concierge' owner Iris and vampire investigator Cal lacked chemistry.

    20. A lot less funny then I had hoped for but enjoyable just the same.Sorry. Seems I'm saving words for my exams.

    21. Iris Scanlon is a very talented woman. She has made a business helping vampires. She is a wedding planner, party planner, personal shopper, personal assistant the list goes on.Iris receives clients through the counsel a lot of the time. Iris might work with vampires but she does not trust the vampires. The exception to this is Jane and Andrea which has earned some of her trust. Because of this Iris is sure to make her rounds and deliveries to the vampires homes before sundown when she would be l [...]

    22. Iris Scanlon is a young woman thrown abruptly into a world of responsibility and obligation when her parents are suddenly killed in a car accident leaving her as the sole caretaker of her younger sibling, Gigi. Iris is a very determined and responsible guardian. She is a unique entrepreneur catering to the needs of vampires who have "come out of the closet" and are part of our communities. She runs a one-woman errand/concierge service for vamps who cannot fulfill the mundane tasks of life that m [...]

    23. The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires by Molly HarperMolly Harper's books never seem to let me down. I love re-reading them when I've had too much of the overly brooding angst that so many of today's speculative fictions book seem to have. While Ms Harpers male protagonists do seem to be a tad dark, there is always a bit of sly wit running through them, you just know that they want to let go of their dark and broody character and let go with a good belly laugh. And as luck would have it, that i [...]

    25. This book is hilarious!!!!!! Iris is a great character, and I hope to hear more about her in the future!!!!!!!!!3rd time around and this is still a winner in my bookIris is an awesome character, and I love the Half Moon Hollow charactersI am so glad Iris and Gigi got a happy ending.ey truly deserve it! I am super happy I picked this for book clubd I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!! <3

    26. 4 1/2Maybe my favorite Molly Harper so far. I really liked How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf also. This had the cuteness and snark with some really fun scenes. The romance was OK/good though these aren't really read for the romance. The relationship was great. There was a silly and ridiculous scene in the end but that usually happens in Harper's books so you should expect it. It didn't ruin the plot or take away from the humor. I liked this one all the way through.

    27. This book was interesting I guess? I wasn't too impressed by it, but it was funny to a degree. Also I really liked that Iris decided against being turned into a vampire when she was in a life-or-death situation. That doesn't happen too often in vampire books. Will I be reading the next book in the series? Probably not. But you never know. Maybe should book two ever be on sale.
