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.

    "Totally Entertaining!"

    This isn't normally my genre of books - but I saw the reviews on how funny this whole series was and they were completely right! I was not only consistently entertained by the books in the Jane Jameson series but frequently treated to laugh-out-loud humor. I'm lucky that I listen to audio books during my long solo commute - otherwise I'm sure I would have been labeled as a crazy person for my bursts laughter. Can't wait for more!

    "Seriously funny and entertaining !"

    "Funny as heck"

    The story was funny and the narration was funny. Amanda was able to give each character their own sound/voice. Not once did I get confused about who was talking (like I have with other audible books). I was able to connect with the main character very well. She and I are almost the same person even! I would definately reccomend this to all of my friends and anyone who loves funny vampire stories.

    "If you like to Laugh : Sarcastic Quips Funny !"
    Where does Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 20%, I recommend it, the story is funny, not overly steamy like some books, which can be embarrassingly too detailed, ... sexy, but tastefully written. She views her "turning" as OMG, what next ! Talk about bad days ! Some of the deep south characters and thier southern drawals are nicely narrated. Frequent chuckles, a few great belly laughs, an overall good read.


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

    Her humerous way of delivering the sarcastic quips, her narration is perfect,

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

    It was surprisingly funny.


    What other book might you compare Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to and why?

    Compares to Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series. Both are about vampires who have come out to mainstream society and feature other supernatural species


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

    No I have not.

    "So funny, but predictable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this for a light reading only to all fans of the vampire fluffy romance genre


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    The speaker does a great job in accenting all the humor used by the author, a lot of parts during the reading made me smile


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if I will be reading all the other books... the best feature in the story is the author's sense of humor, all the rest is pretty much a recycle of the usual vampire novels... I found the Sookie Stackhouse series to be a lot more interestingly structured and love scenes are way more intreaguing than this series. The love affair in this first book is not so developed but maybe this will be done in the next books?
    Maybe I will give the second book a chance, I noticed that this first book got lower reviews anyways...

    Any additional comments?

    This series has been so much fun to listen to! The narrator is fantastic. I couldn't stop listening. While the story is a little predictable and the mystery is easy to figure out the characters make up it. The heroine is funny, sarcastic, and so snarky. I laughed out loud countless times. I waisted no time getting the rest of the series and Molly Harpers other books as well.

    "Love her quick wit and quirky characters!"

    I usually hate vampire/ paranormal books, but this was funny, sexy and witty! Jane gets fired from her job as a librarian, a job she loves and spills her troubles to a man she's never met as she drinks away her sorrows at a local pub. The good thing is, Jane is not a whiner, but has a quick wit and sarcastic humor and the man is intrigued. But he doesn't invite her home and she's bummed. Then her car quits on the way home, she falls into a muddy ditch, gets mistaken for a deer by a drunk hunter and is shot. Days don't get much worse. Luckily, her stranger found her and asks, "Do you want to die?" Jane says no and thus begins her days as part of the newly undead. There's a gift basket from the local "Undead Welcoming Committee" complete with handbook, the special foods section at Walmart where she can buy her synthetic blood all night and a whole new life she had never imagined. And of course, the man who saved her, Gabriel, who is smokin' hot and wants her. Her best friend, Zeb, who almost becomes her first meal (and no vampires do not kill humans -they only take what they need, but Zeb doesn't know that yet) joins a friends and family of vampires support group where he meets a wonderful werewolf. Then there is her dead aunt whom she can now see and talk to, her pushy mom, selfish sister and a vampire horn dog that won't leave her alone. The story is funny and the characters are great! Love Molly Harper's sharp sense of humor!

    "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!

    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.

    I have two. Dick, and Aunt Jetty.

    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!
