Early Review: Fangs for Memories by Molly Harper

Fangs for Memories: Dick Cheney and Andrea

(Half-Moon Hollow #4.5)

Fangs for the Memories (Half-Moon Hollow, #4.5)

From Goodreads.com
Join Half-Moon Hollow’s favorite couple for a trip down memory lane—to a time when Mr. Wainwright was newly dead, Jane Jameson was a newbie vampire, and a budding paranormal romance was not yet uncorked…

Half-Moon Hollow’s supernatural social event of the season—Zeb’s Titanic-themed werewolf wedding—is coming up, and Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!) needs a date. But Andrea’s had enough of clever, handsome, and rakish to last a lifetime, and Dick Cheney is certainly not the sort of man you bring home to mom (not that Andrea’s deadist parents are speaking to her ever since she dropped out of college and became a blood surrogate.) Shameless, relentless, roguish, with a Stetson-worthy swagger, a naughty sparkle in his eyes, and a constant smirk—oh, and fangs—no, Dick is the last person (er…vampire) Andrea wants to date.

But the infuriatingly irresistible man who lives quietly on the edge of a criminal underworld knows exactly what he wants, and once he surprises Andrea with a thrilling hot and dirty kiss behind the paranormal bookshop, she knows what she wants too: Dick. All it takes to ignite their unconventional courtship is a near-undeath experience that confronts Dick with a choice between turning Andrea, losing her forever, or tapping into his countless shady resources in this hilarious and heartwarming enovella that revisits the early days of Molly Harper’s Nice Girls series

I am so happy we got a chance to look back on Dick Cheney (vampire not Vice President) and Andrea. When I got the book all I knew was that it was a Half Moon Hollow book and that’s all I needed to know to read it, so when I cracked it open and realized we were flashing back to the origins of Dick and Andrea I was pleasantly surprised. Their courtship never when into any depth, we knew Dick flirted but Andrea always put him off and then all of the sudden they were a power couple. Here we get a deeper look in how it all happened and I’m so glad we did!

The novella is in true Molly Harper style, mishaps and laughs.  Harper always gives you a quirky, fun character that you fall in love with and although we have already fallen in love with these two in previous books you fall deeper after reading this. It turns out Dick Cheney has a romantic sensitive side and we find out why Andrea has been standoffish towards men.  We have a near death experience as usual and some good laughs. The novella is short, and I wasn’t ready for the end. I wanted some more. Good thing Harper has a new book from this series coming out next month so I’ll get my fix!
