Author: Molly Harper
Narrator: Sophie Eastlake
Series: Half-Moon Hollow #2.5
Length: 4 hrs 44min
This story was originally published in the anthology The Undead in My Bed.
Tess is a workaholic and it has caused her to have an exhaustion filled breakdown in her five-star kitchen in Chicago. She takes a break to Half-Moon Hollow, but things quickly become stressful when she finds herself with an unexpected vampire housemate.
This was an enjoyable novella. Tess and Sam have a hate to love, forced proximity relationship that is filled with pranks and arguments. I found their pranks on each other hilarious and a bit diabolical. While it took me a little bit to warm up to Tess, I really enjoyed watching her find her passion in cooking again. Half-Moon Hollow gives her a chance to reassess her life and find her joy again, and start a new life.
Sam’s story was heartbreaking but it worked out for him in the end. His ex-wife was a real piece of work and I loved the confrontation Tess and Sam had with her at the fair. She totally deserved it and I was trying not to die of laughter at work during that scene. I really enjoyed how these two went from enemies to lovers. It made for an enjoyable and funny romance.
Overall, this was a great little novella for this series and I wonder if Tess and Sam will be appearing in future books.
