Publisher's Summary

Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.
Cal - who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris allowed herself to think that way - offers Iris a hefty fee for hiding him at her place until he figures out who wants him permanently dead. Even though he's imperious, unfriendly, and doesn't seem to understand the difference between "employee" and "servant", Iris agrees, and finds herself breaking more and more of her own rules to help him - particularly those concerning nudity. Turns out what her quiet little life needed was some intrigue and romance - in the form of her very own stray vampire.

Points for hottie bad guy!

I was pleasantly surprised with Molly Harper's latest, The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires.
I've read all her work (and I love Amanda Ronconi as her narrator) but generally felt that all her main characters across different books were largely the same. I had expected this book to be the same as the last one, Driving Mr Dead, since the premise is very similar, and was delighted to see that it was not only different, but also much more substantial, with well thought-out and fleshed out characters.

As per usual, the main point of the book is humour and romance, and the plot isn't that thrilling if you're not into botany but mostly serves as a mechanism to facilitate trials and opportunities for the romance to develop. At times the humour seems like an unrealistic reaction and detracts from a sense of peril, but since I don't think this is a genre of books which is supposed to be taken very seriously, it didn't ruin my experience.
The story progresses at a good pace and kept me interested all the way through.

The highpoint of the book for me was the sexy-evil-bad-guy scenes, even though I'm probably not supposed to cheer for him.
