Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1 | [Molly Harper]

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.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Refreshingly funny delightful"

    Love this series. I've always liked vampire books but really this is the best ever. It's different in so many ways. It has everything. She covers the southern ways in such a way that it almost seems like home. The family dynamics are so funny.

    "Pleasantly surprised."
    What made the experience of listening to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs the most enjoyable?

    I had listened to the first of the werewolf series by Molly Harper previously, and was unimpressed. I thought that this was a different author, and had been dismayed to learn that they were both Molly Harper books, with the same narrator. However, when I started listening, I found it hard to put down! Although this main character is also sulky and whiny, it fits her better, and plays into the plot in a way that it did not in the other series. The plot carried me on from beginning to end, with surprises at every turn. A thoroughly enjoyable listen.


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

    The surprise in the beginning about how the main character becomes a vampire is very funny and original.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Although I personally think the narrator's voice is nasal, that is not something I think she can improve upon. Her voice was a good choice for the part.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book was hilarious for a vampire novel, and that is something that many try for, and at which few succeed.


    Any additional comments?

    I would definitely recommend this book for a light, fun read; this book would make a great vacation novel.

    "Humorous Paranormal that laughs at itself"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Molly Harper writes a great Intro to being a Vampire from the viewpoint of one conservative small town girl. Amanda Ronconi does a humorous job of giving a southern voice to the girl and the rest of the crowd in the book. The plot is not new but it has a fair number of twists and turns. It follows one of Molly's other books of an overbearing mother who wants to control everything and a dysfunctional sister. Overall the mix of characters and their influence on the new vampire provides plenty of reason to come up with reasons for walking around with my earplugs in while listening to the audiobook - regardless of where I am.


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

    Yes - just as good.

    "I will listen to the series"
    What made the experience of listening to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed this book and it's narration. It is more of a performance than 'a reading', I felt like I got to know the character through the voice. I hope Amanda Ronconi, reads the next books in the series.

    "A really fun series"

    I use reviews by others quite often to help me to decide to read a book and if there are others out there that do the same, Im writing this review so that I can tell how much fun I had reading this series. It quirky, funny, and I felt I wanted to know how all the characters came out. I enjoyed them all.

    I am a Molly Harper fan and very happy to read any of her work.

    Amanda Ronconi compliments this series very well and I also follow her work in Rachel Vincent's, My Soul series too. She is a pleasure to listen to with great delivery and inflection.

    "Great Series and Great Narrator!"

    Loved this book, the first in a series of vampire books. Molly Harper has become a favorite author of mine with her humorous style of writing and engaging characters.
    Jane Jameson, a young librarian in a small town, is turned into a vampire following a freak shooting accident. Vampire Gabriel Nightingale finds her and turns her to save her life. The story follows Jane as she learns to deal with her new "life" and the quirky bunch of new friends she makes as a vampire.
    Amanda Ronconi is perfect as the narrator. She has just the right voice for the characters and really enhanced my enjoyment of the book. I'm listening to the 3rd book in the series now and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. Highly recommend if you like campy paranormal stories. I also recommend Molly Harper's two "Naked Werewolf" books.

    "Funny and well written"
    Where does Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was refreshingly upbeat and funny. I enjoyed it so much. It's on my top 5 book list.


    What did you like best about this story?

    So many fantasy books are all about tough, supernatural, fem fatale characters. The lead character in this book finds her new life bewildering. As she struggles to grow into her new life the reader gets to go along for the ride. It's a fun ride!


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I think she really captured Jane's voice. She got the humor and sarcasm just right.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is a laugh out loud funny book. I was in a super market listening to this book and I was laughing so much I has to shut it off.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book if you are feeling blue or just need a lift. I listened to it again a few weeks after the first time and found things I missed.

    "Fun and Fresh!"

    Enter a new "vampire" romance book. Molly Harper's characters are sassy and magnets for trouble, so Jane Jameson is all you would expect. Amanda Ronconi's narration captures the "smart a--" tone of the characters perfectly, so that you can almost visualize them, no matter how impossible the actual situations might be. This book is fun!!
