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.

    If you could sum up Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Innocuous, Fun


    Any additional comments?

    Entertaining enough to keep me awake for a very long drive. While it's not going to win any literary prizes, we definitely enjoyed it enough to order the entire series. Also clean enough to have on with my tween and teen children in the car.

    "Hysterical"

    This series is so funny, I must appear insane laughing to myself with my earbuds in. (No offense to those who occasionally take up residence in the laughing academy intended.) The dialogue and descriptions of obnoxious family members, clueless men and a nasty old boss are awesome. I LOVED this and got the remaining in the series because they were so fun. I put all the other titles by this author in my wish list because she is just that good!

    This is a nice, light, easy to listen to story. I'm not a fan on the current vampire craze, but chose this series based on some of the recommendations I read. I'm glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and look forward to more from the author. The characters were engaging and likeable. Overall, it was funny and up-lifting. Yes, I'd recommend it.

    "LIGHTHEARTED- FUNNY- & A VAMPIRE? NEVER HAPPENS!"

    I bought this book as a "take a chance" because I love the supernatural stories, vampires especially. But this one is definitely different! She's funny, like an improv comedienne on the stage! Almost every word out of her mouth is funny sarcasm or a one liner worthy of a premium TV channel! I liked this book enough to buy the second in the series and I am pretty sure I will finish the four books done so far. They are light hearted enough to keep me entertained and I just don't have to keep track of a lot of different story lines, just hers and she's funny as heck. On a bad day> I could find that I have a lot in common with her but I am actually a lot luckier than she is. Good book, highly recommend the story for those who like to laugh.

    Story
    "It's really good, but......"

    Well, although I think the story is really funny, Jane acts so obtuse. I mean really, she's hearing tales about how she did all these awful things, and yet she dismisses this - like it's a mean girl thing from high school. She may be a vampire, but she has absolutely no super natural skills to determine what the heck is going on. When she gets shot at, she is just stunned and nervous. Hello - can you please react like a vampire and do something. I like the story, but I don't know if I will commit to the remainder of the series - unless Jane seriously gets a little smarter.

    Although the narrator does a really good job with Jane's voice, the other voices fall short and flat. Gabriel sounds awful. Just that voice alone would make you NOT want to make out with him. There are truly some funny parts to the book, but please have Jane smarten up.She is gullable to the point where it's annoying. She thinks nothing of vampire murder charges - but really thinks nothing of it. Come on, Jane - can you get past yourself. Nice girls don't have fangs is really good, but Jane needs to find some intelligence - and not just quoting pop culture from books.

    Well, I'm at my least 1 hour of the book, and I cannot wait to finish it - but for all the wrong reasons.

    "Lighthearted vampire novel"

    For those who like paranormal but don't care for dark and fright stories, this is a good listen.
    Well written, humorous, and very well narrated. Molly Harper is a talented author and this is a good start to this series.

    "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.

    I have two. Dick, and Aunt Jetty.

    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!
