Undead Sublet (Half Moon Hollow #2.5) by Molly Harper

17373966A 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.


Review –

This was an audio book and at first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but the more I listened the more  I became invested in the characters, the plot and the humor of it all.  This story, I take it, is part of a larger volume which I have not read, but I may have to find it and add it to my “to read list”.  I will definitely be looking forward to the next installment.  Very good and the narrator had a pleasant voice.

Review –

I wish I had written this review immediately after reading this book, but I didn’t and now I’m fuzzy on some of the events, but I rated it 5 STARS ***** because the ending was SO unexpected and makes the reader believe that it’s the end of the series-but IT CAN’T BE.  The author must continue. There are unanswered questions and relationships are still not firm.   ???????????  (head scratch)  Cried and cried while reading the final few pages and couldn’t have written a review then if my life depended on it because my eyes were all red  and swollen.  Anyway ***** and I’ll be waiting for the next book.

First, his hair started falling out. Then skin started peeling from his toes. Some stuffing came out of his belly button, and a piece of something gray and wet-his brain?-fell out of his nose. Is this normal? Or is this boy coming unglued? With a perfect combination of humor and grossness, this look at one boy’s farfetched fears will have readers laughing their heads off!
“A zany, ultimately reassuring take on something that may indeed be a child’s bugaboo.” –Booklist

Review –
I love this book.  It is hilarious,especially when he finds lint in his belly button and thinks his “stuffing” is coming out. It’s a hoot.  Adults as well as children will find this book educational and funny.
