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).
Molly Harper once again takes us on a hilarious tour to Half-Moon Hollow to meet the newest vampire on the block.
Being a Mom is one of the hardest jobs there is and it is an impossible one to give up. From the moment of their birth, fighting for your child and protecting them from harm becomes instinctual. Libby Stanton lost her husband two years ago in an accident, just before she was diagnosed with cancer. She was losing the battle and the thought of leaving her son in the care of her in-laws was too much to bear. Not that they were bad people, but they only saw Danny as a substitute for their dead son, Rob, and not for the special little boy he was with his own likes and dislikes.
[It's almost as bad as blaming the sins of the father on the son...]
