Title: The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires
Series: Half Moon Hollow #1
Author: Molly Harper
Rating: 

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 kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

Cal - who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris allowed herself to think that way - offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place until he figures out who wants him permanently dead. Even though he’s imperious, unfriendly and doesn't seem to understand the difference between "employee" and "servant," Iris agrees, and finds herself breaking more and more of her own rules to help him - particularly those concerning nudity. 

Turns out what her quiet little life needed was some intrigue & romance—in the form of her very own stray vampire.


The book begins when Iris finds herself taking on a new client. She just has to stop by his house to drop off the paper work, and then move on. The problem is she never actually expected to run into her client literally, and then get dragged into his whole world of problems. She can't seem to say no to him, and for a sum of money she ends up taking him home with her to get well again. The problem is, Iris might just be starting to have feelings for this vampire she found, and she's unsure what the future will bring when he leaves. 

This book was okay. I liked it, but it just wasn't as good as the Jane Jameson series. This one had lots of funny moments, but I just never felt like the hero and heroine connected at all. So, I didn't understand how they had feelings for each other either, because I just never felt it. Other then that, I enjoyed the story, and all of the side characters as well. I'm not sure if I will read the next book in the series, but this one was enjoyable.
