How did Andrea and Dick Cheney fall in love? Join Half-Moon Hollow’s favorite couple for a trip down memory lane—to a time when Mr. Wainwright was newly dead, Jane Jameson was a newbie vampire, and a budding paranormal romance was not yet uncorked…I have been a fan of the entire Jane Jameson World including it’s spin off, Half Moon Hallow, since I was first introduced to Jane and her sarcastic ways. When Jane and Andrea met, they became best friends and snark buddies. So I was thrilled to finally get the real scoop on Andrea and good ‘ole Dick Cheney (the vampire, not the Vice President!)
Half-Moon Hollow’s supernatural social event of the season—Zeb’s Titanic-themed werewolf wedding—is coming up, and Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!) needs a date. But Andrea’s had enough of clever, handsome, and rakish to last a lifetime, and Dick Cheney is certainly not the sort of man you bring home to mom (not that Andrea’s deadist parents are speaking to her ever since she dropped out of college and became a blood surrogate.) Shameless, relentless, roguish, with a Stetson-worthy swagger, a naughty sparkle in his eyes, and a constant smirk—oh, and fangs—no, Dick is the last person (er…vampire) Andrea wants to date.
But the infuriatingly irresistible man who lives quietly on the edge of a criminal underworld knows exactly what he wants, and once he surprises Andrea with a thrilling hot and dirty kiss behind the paranormal bookshop, she knows what she wants too: Dick. All it takes to ignite their unconventional courtship is a near-undeath experience that confronts Dick with a choice between turning Andrea, losing her forever, or tapping into his countless shady resources).
This was a fun, short novella that helped to fill in gaps. Don’t try to attempt this as a stand alone, because it most definitely is not. But if you have read the Jane Jameson series and want some background and the nitty gritty on what happened between Andrea and Dick, then this is the book for you.
This was a fast read and brought to mind the good times I have had with the series. I gave this novella 3 stars.
