Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Winthrop's job description. You know what isn't? Protecting her precious cargo from mid-flight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire. Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Possibly forever.
Fortunately, Anna's dashing fanged companion Finn Palmeroy helps her fend off the attack, but not before their plane crash lands in the forest hundreds of miles from civilization. Great, now she's stranded with a priceless tome and a rakish vampire whose bedtime is fast approaching. Why does everyone want this book so badly, anyway? Anna just wants to get it to Jane before Finn decides to turn her into dinner-or sweep her off her feet. Okay, the second option is really tempting. But they're not out of the woods yet...
This one is going to be a quickie. You all know how much I love Harper’s books. I mean it’s impossible to not laugh while reading, or listening, to these books. This one is no exception. I laughed so hard I was snorting. Probably not attractive, but eh, who cares.
Anna is a character with a lot of quirks. She has her reasons, and I don’t blame her for them. I would have issues too if I had all that crap happen to me. I loved her little bits of random knowledge. There are some really good things to know. And she has a zombie shelter!!!! I mean, anyone with a zombie shelter is someone I should be friends with. (Yes, I realize she’s a fictional character.) I love how she pulled her crap together to do whatever was necessary to get Jane her package. And it was interesting seeing what was in said package.
Oh and FINN!!!!! I’ve wanted a book about him since we met him in Single Undead Moms Club. He’s a mess, and I loved seeing his witty and flirty banter. You definitely have suspicions of his motives throughout the book, but I loved how he interacted with Anna. Maybe he finally found his match….. You’ll have to read to find out.
And I just want to say that if I was lost in the woods being hunted by a crazed pilot, I’m pretty sure I would not survive. Seriously, I lack the survival gene. Thank goodness I have a hubby that would help me not die during a zombie apocalypse.
Also, due to things said toward the end of this book, I hope we get to see some old friends soon.
