I first met Molly Harper no more than a week ago when I picked up a copy of How to Flirt With A Naked Werewolf. Published in 2011 it finally hit the top of my reading list. I will be writing that review, but for right now, let’s talk about I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas.
The book is set in the world of Half Moon Hollow, another series by Ms. Harper I now have on my reading list. And it. Is. FUNNY! Gigi’s sister, Iris, has taken care of her since the death of their parents when Gigi was twelve. The thing is, Iris is now a vampire, and of course, vampires don’t eat. Or cook. But she is still determined that this first Christmas after her ‘turn’ Gigi will have the kind of holiday Iris remembers from when their mother was still alive. (Even though mum always had the equivalent of a nervous breakdown every Christmas from trying to meet all of her own goals!)
So, vampires are cooking, cleaning, and decorating like mad, along with a werewolf and several humans, all friends and family of one of the funniest vampire groups I have ever read! Burned caramel, burning ovens, and a pan burning, boiling sweet potato magma burning a nuclear bomb pattern on the brand new kitchen floor – wow. Lots of burning going around when vampires have a tendency to burst into flames!
There is a lot of love in this novel, and a whole boatload of Christmas spirit! Oh, and some killer recipes as well – like bacon covered turkey breast! I hope you add it to your Christmas reading list.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own. Enjoy!
