Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1

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.

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!

    "A happy-go-lucky story with quirky characters"

    Molly Harper has become my go-to author whenever I’m in the mood for a happy-go-lucky story with quirky characters and Amanda Ronconi has the perfect sarcastic tone that helps add some extra oomph to an already hilarious tale. This book is a great way to break a reading slump or to lighten your mood. I think Murphy’s Law: “anything that can go wrong will go wrong”, was written with Jane Jameson in mind. Each chapter begins with a cute quote from The Guide For The Newly Undead; Harper also did something similar in her The Naked Werewolf series and I’m happy to see that it wasn’t just a one-off because these tips are hilarious! Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs will make you laugh so hard that you’ll end up in tears (in a good way!).

    I discovered Molly’s books backwards; after having enjoyed her werewolves so much I just had to check out her vampires too! Please keep in mind that I am left-handed though so I tend to do things a little out of whack compared to most. Jane and I hit it off instantly! How can you not want to learn more about a character who gets fired from her job, drunk, mistaken for a deer and then shot within the first few chapters? You can’t. Jameson is ditzy, sarcastic and lovable. She’d probably drive me crazy in real life but as a fictional character, she’s freaking hilarious! Her shenanigans are laugh-out-loud funny and the situations she finds herself in are baffling in their absurdity. More often than not I found myself thinking “this could only happen to Jane”.

    There’s a decent amount of world building in this novel which is expected seeing how it is the first installment of this series. I enjoyed learning about Harper’s vampires, the undead council and especially Jane through her internal monologues. The main story struck me as kinda odd; at first I wasn’t really sure of its direction and then as the pieces came together I was quite stunned by the overall turn of events. They were… unexpected. I’ll be curious to see what the next installment has in store because I had trouble identifying a plot line that’d continue into the next book. I’m thinking that these novels might be episodes in the mini-series that is Jane’s life which is fine by me because Jameson’s world definitely isn’t dull!

    The side characters are just as lovable as the main one; I especially liked Gabriel and Zeb. The former is undeniably sexy but begins this story with a stick up his butt. At first I found him stuffy, a little stuck-up and rather mundane but, as the book progresses Jane slowly chips away at his snooty outer shell. I enjoyed watching his transformation and by the end I was putty in his hands. Zeb’s a normal guy who suddenly finds himself with a werewolf girlfriend and a vampire for a best friend. At one point, he repeatedly stabs Jane just to watch her heal. Their experiments with her undead-ness are beyond funny!

    Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs is good, clean, fun and guaranteed to make you look like an idiot because you will laugh out loud and receive dirty looks from those around you.

    Molly Harper is a master of wit. Every one of her books made me laugh out loud many ,many times. It might not be for everyone but if you like Jeanine Frost and Ilona Andrews ,you'll like her. And reader is great

    "Who wants to be a nice girl anyway?"

    This book is actually 8 hours and 48 minutes, it is wrong in the description, but worth every minute of it. I was smirking or laughing through out most of it. The characters are very real and come up with some hairball schemes and some unlucky trouble. I will defiantly get the rest of the series, I also enjoyed the werewolf series, and they are humorous. Molly Harper connects her other series and books to this series. Driving Mr. Dead has some of the same characters in it, but it can be read alone.

    "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)

    "Fluffy fun, great narration and really easy listen"

    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.

    "For a good laugh listen to this series!!"

    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!!
