avid audiobook listener, sociopath, nerd.
These books are laugh-out-loud funny, sexy, and exciting. I listened to the whole series in less than a week and can't wait for more!
This is the second book in the "Nice Girls" series. It's a fun, light-hearted, easy listening vampire series about a new vampire named Jane Jameson. Like the first book, this one has all kinds of interesting interactions with her family, vampires friends, and other interesting creatures. If you like the Charlaine Harris "sookie" books you will likely enjoy this series as well.
While not what I would generally listen to, this is a very amusing book. I certainly laughed out loud a few times. The narrator is skilled at portraying the different voices and does an admirable job mimicking a Southern accent; (as, unfortunately I would know being from South Carolina).
Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men, the second book in Molly Harper's Jane Jameson series, is another fun, witty, quirky romp through Half Moon Hollow.
With Zeb and Jolene's wedding day quickly approaching and more and more obstacles being thrown in their path to wedded bliss, Jane seems to have become their couples counselor - much to her chagrin. But with Gabe and Jane's relationship feeling no small amount of strain, can Jane help her best friend make it to the altar while dealing with her own less than supportive relatives and a boyfriend who might be cheating on her?
As I said in My Review of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs, the writer/narrator team of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi makes these stories shine in a way that reading from a book just can't match. The story itself is funny, quirky, unique, sexy and poignant, but with Ms. Ronconi narrating - it comes to life.
I'm not usually a fan of stories where there's not a happily ever after for the hero and heroine at the end of their book, but Gabriel and Jane's relationship dynamic works for me. I do have to admit, though, I'm starting to wonder what Gabriel's secret is, and I hope we find out soon. Too much dragging out of the main character's happily ever after makes me lose interest, but I'm looking forward to the next book and hoping those nagging questions are answered.
I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.
I enjoyed the banter that Jane has with her friends and family
She brings that soulful southern accent to every character and portrays that snarky attitude just fantastically.
It's a good follow-up to Nice Girls don't have Fangs, but it's not quite as good. I will say that I could never have Mama Ginger in the series again and be quite happy, she's a horrible woman. I'm entertained enough, so I will finish the series.
I'm a voracious audiobook listener, rarely found without my iPod.
I have really enjoyed all the Molly Harper books I've listened to and read so far, but I'm beginning to tire of the same cookie cutter jokes and characters. I was surprised to find myself getting bored mid-way through this one.
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I could listen to this over and over again and never be sick of Jane and company.
There is nothing better than a good book!
I could go on and on about Molly Harper's wittiness and talent.... She is one of my favorite top 5 authors ever... But when she teamed up with Amanda Ronconi, oh my! What a pair! Ronconi's spot-on vocals and her ability to bring Harper's characters to life always leaves me smiling and begging for more!
So I really like the Jane Jameson series. They're witty, snarky, and generally hilarious. This book with Jane's best friend getting married was really funny. From the over the top wedding stuff to the lengths Mama Ginger went to were really quite funny. I liked the progression of Jane and Gabriel's relationship and Dick Cheney and Andrea's dance around each other. The narrator is a perfect match for the material.
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
I have read so many great series this month, I would have to say top 5 if not top 3.
Jane, Zeb, Jolene, Dick, oh heck, all of them.
It would not be the great audiobook it is without Ronconi!
The entire book was hilariously entertaining.
You cannot go wrong with this series.
