I'm surprised so many other reviewers noted how much like the Stookie Stackhouse series this book is, but not many mention the Undead and Unwed series. For me, this was a cross between the two, more heavily borrowing from Undead and Unwed in style despite being set in the South and having many borrowed elements from the Sookie series. I would recommend sticking with either or both of the other series, both of which I really liked. This really was not as good as either other series and did "borrow" (steal) heavily from both, particularly the Undead and Unwed series.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I love Molly Harper her southern books are to die for. If you want a funny romance, with vampires then this is it
I LOVE audiobooks. Audible is the only way I read my favorite books.
...not a bad read. At first, I was put off by how much of a Sookie knockoff it was, but I was really in need of something new since the next Sookie book won't be out 'til 2011, so I picked it back up again. Ronconi does as good of a job as the narrator, as Johanna Parker does for the Sookie books.
Sookie is better, but Jane comes in as good filler when you've read, reread, and read again all of the Sookie stories. I liked it enough to pick up my paperback copy when I couldn't listen.
If you love the Sookie Stackhouse series (at least the beginning) but wished that Sookie had been the vampire. Well this book grants your wish. With razor sharp wit and humor Molly Harper introduces us to Jane Jameson who has all the southern charm of Sooke Stackhouse.
I really enjoyed this book, I found myself posting some of the funniest comments and quotes on my facebook to make my friends laugh. I think I have at least two more people now reading the series after that.
If you are looking for a fun, humorous, vampire adventure with a splash of romance novel (just a sprinkling for flavor), this is your book.
I am a big fan of Mary Janice Davidson's "Undead - Betsy Vampire Queen" series because of the sharp humor. Molly Harper's series has now had the same impact! Bright, witty, entertaining and most importantly, helps me to forget the troubles in my life and the heat in my hike in the SOCAL desert heat! I already have the next two books in this series downloaded...I hope she is not dead and that they are ending but could be. Never heard of you Molly, but you have a fun style and totally different than Mary Janice, except the "vampire" theme and THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING THERE WERE/ARE FANS WHO ARE NOT "TWEENS" in this genre!!!
This is the first in a series of three. It is hilarious. The writer has a great wit and provide an engaging story. The narrator reads the story with perfect inflection. I can't wait for the next in the series.
I was looking for something light and entertaining for a weekend listen, and Nice Girls was perfect! Interesting storyline and characters, and made me laugh out loud several times! I have already downloaded Book 2!
Really nice easy read. Slightly predictable but really how far can a book about vampires stray off the beaten path. It was good enough for me to want to find out whats next!!
Yes, another vampire romance, but my wife knew that this was one piece of chick lit. I would dig.
I will never "read" Molly Harper's series; rather, I will always listen to Amanda Ronconi. She is one of the best matches of narrator to material ever. What a delight; she brings out every bit of wit that the clever author comes up with. My favorite is her take on the "Welcome Wagon" lady.
Our heroine is kind of a southern version of Isabel Spellman, the semi nuts investigator of Lisa Lutz "Spellman" files. This novel is maybe not perfect, but still perfectly delightful. For a first effort, Molly Harper almost knocks it out of the park.
