Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read. While Jane is trying to master undead dating, she is also donning the ugliest bridesmaid's dress in history at her best friend Zeb's Titanic-themed wedding. Between a freaked-out groom-to-be, his hostile werewolf in-laws, and Zeb's mother, hell-bent on seeing Jane walk the aisle with Zeb, Jane's got the feeling she's just rearranging the proverbial deck chairs.
Meanwhile, Half Moon Hollow's own Black Widow, Jane's Grandma Ruthie, has met her match in her latest fiance. He smells like bad cheese and has a suspicious history of dead spouses. But Jane's biting her tongue. After all, would a nice girl really think she has a future with a vampire?

molly harper has managed to write an engaging series of books. It has a lightly humorous vein (pardon the pun) your average nerdy bright girl who never quite fit into the normal social set. A wickedly handsome hero who isn't all vanilla and spice. throw in a food neurotic werewolf girlfriend and a couple of ghosts, and strained family ties and you have yourself a chuckling good time. enjoy.
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.
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 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.
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.
Yes. The narrator is awesome! She brings acting back to the charactors. Adding to their personality.
The main charator. The spin events keep you guessing and if you listen to it a secound time you pick up even more stuff that you might have missed the first time.
I have this whole series and i love each book!!
Yes!! I was laughing so hard that I had to pull my vehicle over because I had tears in my eyes.
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.
The character development, the narrator was wonderful with the voices and delivery of comments that really made me LOL.
Jane, and how she inter acts with all her new life problems, family and situations people get her into
Again Jane, but Amanda Ronconi was able to let you feel that as she spoke you know that a different character was speaking.
The Wedding rehearsal, and what happens right after.
If you've listened to Christopher Moore's "Blood Sucking Fiends", "You Suck" and "Bite Me" and enjoyed that series then you'll really love this. I find myself laughing out loud so many times. I just started the third book in the series. If you enjoy FUNNY Vampire stories this is a MUST have series. I know I'll listen to it more than once.
"Another excellent book from Ms Harper"
I love Molly's books! They are always good fun with a bit of romance and some laughter as well. You do need to read the series in order so that you know why Jane is a vampire and works in the bookshop but this was a great addition to the series. This second book continues with the planning of the wedding of Zeb and Jolene and also adds more background to other characters such as Dick and Gabe. Although it's mostly a book about vampires, other supes are present as well as a couple of resident ghosts. As always Amanda Ronconi's narration was excellent. I have never actually read one of Ms Harper's books, (and I've 'read' most of them') as I would miss the way Amanda Ronconi narrates all the different characters and the different accents she uses. This one finishes on a bit of a cliff hanger (no spoiler) so I can't wait to read the next one in the series to find out what happens. Completely recommended.
This was one of the best books I've listened too this year and loved ever chapter.
This Molly Harper series is fantastic!! The main characters are hilarious and really engage the reader (or listener) All of the Molly Harper books I have listened to have been read by the same person - she is so good!!
Would highly recommend Molly Harper books!!!
This book is well written, but I found the main character to be pathetically spineless and infuriating to anyone with the slightest bit of independence.
I actually finished the book feeling angry at her, and most of her family.
I really enjoyed the first Molly Harper book - Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs, and this book continues the wonderfully funny, quirky story about vampires, werewolves and Kentucky Mommas, Grand-mommas and family.
This truly made me burst out laughing while walking the dog - don't think of this book in the same vein as some other recent vampire books - this is just great - with sparkling dialogue and engaging characters.
