I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas by Molly Harper

Unabridged Audio Version
I recently listened to I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas by Molly Harper and narrated by Amanda Ronconi. I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is part of the Half-Moon Hollows series and is approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes in length.

Yes, I know it's a bit early for Christmas holiday reads, but I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas was a free download from and a short listen for commuting. 

Listening to I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas was also my first experience with anything written by Molly Harper. Although, I enjoyed Amanda Ronconi's narration of Molly Harper's I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas, I wasn't impressed with the storyline and characters themselves in I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas

Sure, there were funny moments in I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas, but I'm still trying to figure out the point of the story. Sure it's about Christmas, spending time with family and friends, along with blending vampires, humans and werewolves together for the holidays.... But it just wasn't much of a story in my opinion. The ending of I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas wasn't much of an ending either... The ending was too tidy for my taste.

The following is a plot summary for I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas from Audible:
It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow. And then there's the small matter of the handsome, frustrating vampire who keeps appearing in Gigi's peripheral vision, then disappearing before she can talk to him. Can the Scanlon sisters negotiate romantic problems, vampire politics, and Christmas cookie disasters and enjoy a relatively normal holiday?
I'm giving I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas by Molly Harper a rating of 5 stars out of 10 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
