You've asked for years when Ophelia and Jamie would get their own story and now it's here! How will Ophelia adjust to living in a dorm room now that she has been banished from the Council and forced to matriculate at college with Jamie? Communal showers! Horrible, pretentious roommates! Humans who try to be FRIENDS! The horror!
This is a special review which is akin to Jennifer’s Read It, Track It where I am reading books for the COYER Winter Storm Challenge.
The Half-Moon Hollow series has been somewhat hit or miss for me. But what is always a home run is Molly Harper’s humor and the narration of Amanda Ronconi. And Dick Cheney. I did read Big Vamp on Campus rather than listening, but I may go back and add the audio.
I enjoyed learning more about Ophelia. Her reaction to college life and developing personal relationships is interesting and understandable. I don’t feel like I know Jamie very well and consequently I don’t care about him too much. I’m not sure why some girls become her friend but I like it.
There is one part where Ophelia is told Jane wants her to email information and then Jane doesn’t seem to know about it. That loose thread has me worried.
Overall, this was fun. I’ll likely revisit it on audio. It looks like the next book, The Accidental Sire, available in July 2017, picks up where this one ends.

I really enjoyed this one – I did the audio – because I find Ophelia fascinating. I feel like we should know Jamie better, considering he was a big part of the final book in Jane Jameson series, but for some reason he just didn’t leave a big mark for me either. Looking forward to seeing where the next book takes us!
I enjoyed this one more than I thought when I found out it was about Ophelia. She is not a character that I’ve enjoyed in the past. I was surprised by how much I liked her in this book. I’m excited to see where the next book takes her. I do really love this series. I agree the other parts of the stories can be hit or miss, but I know it will always make me laugh. Great review.
