Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - The Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi pairing has become the stuff of Audible legend, and it all started with this book. If you ever feel like the vampire romance genre has all gotten a little bit too serious and swooning for its own good, this is the perfect antidote. The kick-off to the delightfully quirky and laugh-out-loud funny Nice Girls;... series, as well as an equally popular spin-off series, this book has been a non-stop hit with our listeners. — Emily

Publisher's Summary

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood.

Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She's forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What's a nice undead girl to do?

Love in vein: bite into more of Jane Jameson's paranormal exploits.

    "This is a must-have series!!"

    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!

    "Jane Jameson is hilarious!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to be better than the print version?

    I've never read the print version but the audio version was great in most part due to the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane of course! Jane is funny, smart and the saddest version of a "scary vampire" I've ever read. this was the first in the series and I won't stop until I've listened to them all.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Because of Amanda Ronconi I listened to the entire series. and I bought other audio books from this author simply because she was the narrator. She is grrrreat!


    Any additional comments?

    I dare someone to listen to this series and NOT laugh out loud. Go on, I DARE ya! :c)

    Amanda Ronconi is great in this performance. She captures the mood of the book perfectly and the book itself is great fun.

    I recommend this for anyone who likes a good chuckle and plenty of snark!!

    "Entertaining and funny"

    On pretty much the worst day ever, small-town librarian Jane finds herself unemployed and undead in one fell swoop. What follows is an amusing, frequently funny story about her rocky adjustment to the life of a vampire, while trying to find a night job, trying to hide her new existence from her nosy, overbearing mother, and trying to figure out who's stalking her and harassing her.

    The mystery is fairly lightweight, the romance fairly conventional, and the "villain reveals all in a grand speech at the final confrontation" was kind of cheesy, but Amanda Ronconi's wry narration and the author's trademark snarky humor make this an entertaining way to liven up a boring commute.

    "Nice Surprise!!"

    I like to wait a little after I listen to a book to find out how I feel about it. This book was a nice surprise! I smile every time I think about it and will listen to it again. It is funny, very ???everybody??? of common people with normal issues ??? except the issues are not normal. A ghostly well loved dead aunt, an absolutely horrible grandmother, a doormat mother, and a sister that takes jealously to a whole new level. Then there are the friends???

    A very good escape; well worth the point.

    I will always be a fan of this author. I love her humor and found myself laughing out loud at the most inappropriate times. Amanda did an amazing job of narrating the story. I love all vampire stories and this one is at the top of my list of all time fave's. It is a unique spin one the subject matter. I would see myself having the same dumb luck as the main character if vampires were real. Enjoy!!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to be better than the print version?

    Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator. Her voices for the different characters always stand out and she really gets into it. I'm always happy to listen to anything the narrates.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and she is GREAT at her job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, unfortunately I kept having to go to work. I finished it in about two days.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is written well and keeps you wanting for more.

    "Very enjoyable, light, humorous, vamp romance"

    I picked this book out more or less at random as something light to listen to. I've been having difficulty reading actual text and I've turned to audiobooks to "read" more. I am particularly glad I picked this one.



    Jane is a librarian who suddenly discovers herself to be unemployed, gets drunk at a bar, gets shot (mistaken for a deer), and has the choice of being dead, or undead. A few days later she wakes up a vampire. She has a best friend who is almost as dotty as she is, and an overbearing mother. But now that she's undead she has her favourite (dead) relative to keep her company and a suave, attractive sire who she fancies something rotten, but he did turn her into a vampire. On top of that, someone seems to have it in for her, and she needs a new job.



    At least she lives in a world which knows vampires exist. The setting is wonderfully cynical; just my kind of concept. The existance of vampires was revealed as part of a disability lawsuit. Each chapter begins with a quote from the "Guide for the Newly Undead," and the local vampire community holds meet-and-greet parties for newbie vampires, hosted by a vampire property agent (how could anyone tell the difference).



    The narration on this one is good. Amanda Ronconi pulls off the accents, even an English one, nicely and it felt like she enjoyed reading the story even as I laughed my way through it.



    I'll be putting the second in the series on my wishlist.

    "Fun and funny characters"

    I just love this series of books! The interplay between the characters is very funny and the books just zip along. The narration by Amanda Ronconi is spot on and the story is very engaging.
    As a 40 something truck driver who usually listens to Sci-Fi when travelling up and down the country you might not think that these books are aimed at me but I'm glad I gave them a try.

    "Very funny modern twist on vampire tale"

    If you like Charlaine Harris then you will like this. Molly Harper writes with a funny, dry wit. Her tale of Jane Jameson's turning and life with her family, friends and boyfriend/sire is very engaging and had me laughing out loud while listening.

    I really loved this book. I just love Jane, she's so funny and so is her Great Aunt Jettie! I also loved Gabriel, Dick, Andrea, Jeb and Jolene! I enjoyed the story and Jane's initial adjustment to Vampire life although she still has to earn acceptance in the undead community. Poor Jane was the subject of a hate campaign in the story with some unknown targeting her to try and drive her out of the community or kill her.
    She also has to deal with a nightmare family, well her dad's understanding and supportive, but her mum is high strung and very interfering, constantly trying to change Jane. Her sister is also scheming and always trying to put her down, not to mention being jealous that their Aunt Jettie left her house and everything in it to Jane when her sister is quite covetous of the house and the antiques within it.
    I look forward to seeing how things go with her family as they have not handled news of her turning very well, well again her Dad is coping well and supportive of Jane but the rest of her living family is not dealing well with the news.
    I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series!

    I really enjoyed this book. The character and story are both well written. Jane's character is great, she's funny, smart and full of sarcasm. Narration wasn't bad. Will definitely be getting the next in the series.

    Oh, this book was so boring. It started off so well, but then just slowed to treacle and I really lost interest. I liked Jane's self deprecating humour, but there wasn't enough going on to really hold my interest

    Did not finish - only got to about a third of the way through.

    Performance: Amanda Ronconi narrated well, with distinct characters. I think I'd try her narration again

    "A great discovery!"

    This author and narrator are both new to me but I was very pleased with this 'discovery'. The writing is witty and light and though not rocket science, it is fun without the usual overdose of sex often found in this genre. Jane, the main character, is feisty.

    The narrator does a good job capturing the right 'voice' for this type of fiction and the main character.

    I'll be checking out others in the series.

    Everything. It was brilliant. Absolutely hilarious, I mean laugh out loud funny. Amanda Ronconi delivers each character brilliantly and doesn't make them sound fake. She manages to portray male characters well too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have two. Dick, and Aunt Jetty.

    Highly recommended. I also recommend the other books in the series. They're all excellent.

    What did you like best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs? What did you like least?

    Loved the quirky take on vampires and their way of life: the guide for the newly undead!If I'm honest, I didn't feel that much chemistry between Jane and her 'maker' (sorry I'm a truebie!)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane- just the right amount of crazy!


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Brilliant as ever!


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Of course! Vampires, werewolves, ghosts....what's not to love!
