Goodreads Summary:
Experience the vampire world for the holidays through the eyes of Gigi Scanlon in this e-novella prequel to The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire from beloved paranormal romance author Molly Harper!

College co-ed Gigi is headed home to Half-Moon Hollow for her first Christmas since her sister, Iris, was turned into a vampire by her beloved undead husband, Cal. Iris is working overtime to make this holiday as normal and special as possible. After all, it’s taken her months of working with Jane Jameson and the Hollow’s vampires to convince herself that she won’t bite her baby sister on sight.

Gigi has her own worries. She’s falling out of love with her high school sweetheart, Ben, and has no idea how to tell him. She’s got a secret job interview with terrifying teen Council official, Ophelia Lambert. And there’s a handsome but cagey vampire following her around town and then disappearing before Gigi can confirm that he’s not, in fact, a figment of her fertile imagination. Holidays with family are complicated. Christmas with an undead family can be downright dangerous.


My Thoughts:
My first experience with Molly Harper was a few years ago. I listened to How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf in audio book format, and I really liked it. It was the perfect blend of romance and humor. Sadly I haven't read more by Harper until now for the simple reason that there are so many books and so little time. However, I'm glad to jump back into the paranormal world that Harper has created--this time in the Half Moon Hollow series. 

I sorta just jumped into this series feet first since I haven't read the previous books. I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is a novella set between the second and third book. And actually there are a few novellas before this one as well. But don't worry, if you're a newbie like me, you won't get lost. Though there are probably a few spoilers for the first two books in the series. But Harper doesn't give away so much detail as to completely ruin the first two books if you haven't read them. 

I felt like this is a great introduction to the characters that live in Half Moon Hollow. I immediately was taken in by Gigi and her family of supernaturals. I enjoyed this book as much as How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf. It's just as humorous as this book. A Martha Stewart Christmas with vamps, what could possibly go wrong? Reading this book really is just a teaser. Because after you read it, you'll want to go back and read the rest of the series if you haven't already. But sadly you'll have to wait until March to get the third book, The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire.
