I always love Molly Harper's books, so when I won an advance copy of The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires through the Goodreads giveaway, the only happier "happy dance" was when the package finally arrived from Pocket Books (sorry UPS guy). I'd planned on keeping my prize pristine, but it's already dogeared from carrying it with me to read any chance I got. Twice.

This story is related to the Jane Jameson series, but is a fully stand alone novel. However, I wouldn't worry about it too much, because I'm guessing after you read Care and Feeding, you'll buy the rest of Harper's books. Here's why I'm such a fan:

Molly Harper creates story lines that keep you laughing throughout the entire book. Her characters end up in situations that are ridiculously funny but somehow abstain from being plain old ridiculous. The humor is always perfect, never annoying or overdone. You can relate with characters (and sometimes events) and you can't wait to see things finally work out. They are appropriately romantic and always manage hilariously inappropriate nudity.

In fact, if I had to sum them up in one word, it would be "hilarious." I usually listen to the audio versions (which I highly recommend, by the way - the narration is PERFECT) and I've never finished one without laughing out loud at the awkward situations and plot twists and been completely unable to explain to someone in the room what was so funny. Care and Feeding definitely had a different feel than Harper's werewolf and Jane series, but if you enjoyed either of those, you'll love Iris and Cal.

The paperback included a brief preview of the forthcoming Witch Hunt, so now I'll have a new release date to watch for, because it looks like she's done it again.

    Different kind of love story, slapstick comedy type humor

    I get burned out on the same old love story. This book provides a few hours of fresh air and allows you to enjoy a different kind of perspective through the tunnel of love. Sometimes you just want to relax, laugh and enjoy the ride. This book gives you that oppportunity.

    lots of fun quick read for a cold winters eve

    This book was fun to read, kept my interest, allowed me to leave the daily hum drum and
    just peek into the other world. I recommend this book to anyone who just wants to cuddle up with a cup of hot chocolate and escape.

    Very good

    It took a little while to get into the story but by the end I was smiling and giggling out loud. This is the kind of book that when you read it through a second time you appreciate parts in the beginning soooo much more. All in all I thought it was very good.

    Very funny

    Enjoyed the humor immensely, wish the plot had moved a bit quicker, and I, too, enjoyed that staying human was a choice.

    Plenty of action and comedy. I don't think any of the characters

    Plenty of action and comedy.
    I don't think any of the characters will ever compare to Jane, but I am still in love with Half Moon Hollow and all the crazy people it contains.
    I like that this one was different from the others, as some people actually stay human and do not make the transformation into Vampire. It was a simply decision that changes the whole storyline for me. :)

    I really hope this series continues, I don't know that I will find anything quite as funny too read after this!
