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.

The Single Undead Moms Club is classic Molly Harper, romance with a bite of snark.

This is my second time reading a Molly Harper book. I usually listen to them because I love her narrator, Amanda Ronconi. But since I’m on a budget and received a print copy for review I tried reading The Single Undead Moms Club. It was just as fun in print, even though I missed Ronconi’s voice delivering Harper’s snarky humor.

It’s always fun seeing cameos from Jane and Dick. Seeing them in the new roles with the vampire council was a treat. Although I would have liked to see more of Dick but I have Fangs for the Memories to read next so I’ll get my Dick fix (wow that doesn’t say right) soon.

The romance had a touch and go moment with a love triangle that never fleshed out. Which was good. But really the romance between Libby and Wade was a little lukewarm compared to some of the other couples in the series. But it’s a little hard to get too hot and heavy where there’s little kids and the PTA involved. LOL

Libby’s reason for wanting to be turned into a vampire is believable. As a mom I could see why she would want to be turned so that she can stick around to raise her son. But some of the PTA women in town thinks Libby did it so she wouldn’t age instead of dying from cancer. Those “witches” are the only ones in town giving Libby grief about her choice to join the “sleep all day, party all night” crowd. Libby is having to deal with her mother and father in law. An ugly custody battle, bitchy bake sales and Sasquatch makes for a full plate for a single mom with new fangs.

 

Fun Scene:

“No, n- What? That’s just freaking rude. I’m not going to take that from someone who has the name of his favorite motorcycle on his arm,” I shot back.

“That’s not my- That’s my son’s name!” he exclaimed.

“You named your son Harley? Please, please tell me his middle name isn’t Davidson.”

“It’s Wade,” he deadpanned.

“After you, of course. And do you also have a daughter named Chlamydia because it sounded pretty?”

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. Sad to hear that the romance was lukewarm in this one. It seems like the last few books by Harper have had some tepid romances. I think I’ll skip this one and go straight for Fangs for the Memories. Love Dick and Andrea.
