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.

"Hysterical laughs are the hallmark of this enchanting paranormal debut....Harper keeps the quips coming without overdoing the sarcasm, and her take on vampire lore will intrigue and entertain even the most jaded paranormal fan." (Publishers Weekly)
The characters are wonderful, funny and so entertaining it was hard to stop listening.
Amanda Ronconi's performance was dead on. She brought every character to life. I almost fell off my chair a few times laughing out loud. I highly recommend this book.
The different voices made the story come alive. I loved her accents and shifts in pitch and tone making each character unique and real throughout the performance. She should definitely perform more books she is awesome.
A funny touching story of vampires for this generation
Just a great performance and a wonderful story! Keep writing Molly Harper cause I'll keep reading.
A rehash of every vampire story out there. Wooden characters.
She tried hard, but the author didn't give her much to work with.
Can't get enough
Main character of course. She is witty as all get out!!!!! Her one liners crack me up!!
Her accent and sarcasm.
I like to find books that are a series. I like to follow the evolution of characters. This series has a lot of books and can't wait to read them all.
i really did'nt understand what the point of story was,
she was good,
I am new to Molly Harper, my first book was Driving Mr. dead.great , this book however just really did'nt do anything for me.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
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.
yes, the narrator really gives you the feel for the small town south.
It was hilarious. I was laughing out loud while I was driving down the road.
She slipped easily between accents and characters.
Murphie's law of the vampire world.
I have recommended this entire series to all of my friends.
Dick, because he's so wrong.
I can't even pick just one.
READ THIS SERIES! This is an amazing combo of writer and reader and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a funny, light read with a great story line.
It's all about what would happen if you became a vamp today? How do you feed off someone? How do you tell your parents? How do you date?
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!
Yes I would listen to this again. It is well written and a story that has you totally smitten with all the characters.
My favorite scene was when they finally made love.
I love a good book but thanks to dislexea i suck at reeding speling and ya. so bring on audio fiction!
grate books if you are looking for a fun reed! hade me laughing so hard and now i have all of molly harpers books in my library! pick thiss up you will not regret it!
