Libby Stratton is faced with what amounts to a single mom’s worst nightmare. Diagnosed with cancer, the outcome is terminal. Faced with leaving her precious son with her in-laws, she posts an ad on Craigslist for a vampire to turn her. Thinking this is the best possible answer to her problem, she becomes immortal. But this is Half-Moon Hollow, so that is when her real problems start. Judgmental moms in the PTA, a custody battle with her in-laws, and navigating the waters of nocturnal life with a son entering first grade. To top it all off, she runs into a tattooed single dad and the sparks fly! What’s a new vampire to do but trust in Jane Jameson and Dick Cheney to help her navigate the vampire waters and hope for the best?
I love, love, love Molly Harper! She is so entertaining; it is a joy to sit down with one of her books. Libby is a great character; it is so neat to have a vampire who is a parent. Seeing the whole gang from Half-Moon Hollow was awesome as they help Libby become a vampire. With the romance and a mystery to solve, there is not one thing I would change about The Single Undead Mom’s Club. I highly recommend anything by the wonderfully funny and talented Molly Harper.
In the next book in Molly Harper’s Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Libby (a widow-turned-vampire) struggles with her transition, and finds out it sucks to be the only vampire member of the PTA.
Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn’t the best idea she’s ever had, but she was desperate—she’s not about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.
On top of post-turning transition issues, like being ignored at PTA meetings and other mothers rejecting her son’s invitations for sleepovers, Libby must deal with her father-in-law’s attempts to declare her an unfit mother, her growing feelings for Wade—a tattooed redneck single dad she met while hiding in a closet at Back to School Night—and the return of her sire, who hasn’t stopped thinking about brave, snarky Libby since he turned her.
With the help of her new vampire circle, Libby negotiates this unfamiliar quagmire of legal troubles, parental duties, relationships, and, as always in Harper’s distinct, comedic novels, “characters you can’t help but fall in love with” (RT Book Reviews).
