A Story from The Undead in My Bed
In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man.
Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.
I love audio books. In the author’s notes on the audio version of Joe Hill’s NOS4A2, he talks about how the first stories we learn are read to us. I listen to audio books when I’m in the car, shopping, and playing Candy Crush Soda Saga or Trivia Crack.
In typical book blogger fashion, I already have a tbr shelf just for audio books. Reviewing them is a bit more difficult, because I don’t take notes and I don’t always know how to spell the characters names. So these reviews will be a little different from my book reviews.
It was a little weird to listen to someone else narrate a Molly Harper book, but it was still good. I had already met Sam and Tess in I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas, so getting their love story was nice. Although all of Tess’s cooking made me hungry, but that might be why I would fit so well into Jolene’s family. Really liked Tess’s friendship with Jolene, and subsequent friendship with Jane and company. I sometimes wonder if when I’m old I’ll tell people I want to go home to Half Moon Hollow, Kentucky because my poor addled brain thinks I’ve lived there… I’m actually okay with that. 🙂
*Undead Sublet was part of the trio of stories featured in Undead and In My Bed, but this was the only one I wanted to listen to, so I skipped the other stories… which I normally never do, and I might go back to them someday, because the other two authors are ones I want to read, but I really just needed a dose of the Hollow so I treated myself.
Abby Craden narrates this audiobook, and it was a little weird. Not her narration, which was good, but I just felt like I was cheating on Amanda Ronconi since she narrates all of Molly Harper’s other Half Moon Hollow books. I’ve listened to Craden in the recent past (she’s part of the cast for the audiobook The Twelve) and I would definitely listen to her in the future (provided Molly Harper stays paired with Amanda Ronconi). 🙂
