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 so great , their conversations a hoot and overall a book to make you smile and laugh outloud
This is an exceptional series that I seemed to miss. Who knew that a vampire could be just as funny as Stephanie Plum! The family drama reminds me so much of my own family that I often wonder if the author is related to me. I've had to stop driving several times just to pull over and laugh.
I love the family antics including her grandma, mom, and sister. It just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait for book 5!
The book is read in an easy to follow fashion with great character development. I was captured from the very beginning.
I was very compulsive in listening to the entire series in a week and a half. I never went anywhere with out my ipod!
Well worth the purchase! I loved this series.
this book is in the top 10% of my books i just dont tell everyone that it a bit of a romance book so in the wold around me you have to be a girl or gay sine I'm niter i cant tell peple i heard it bad i know but i live in the south
it was just a fumy book i found my self laughing a lot in this book
Ronconi’s pulls of the southern drall very nicely
I loved the characters, the quirky dialog and the story line. It was a little sexually graphic for my tastes. Overall a great listen. Wouldn't recommend it for young listeners due to the sexuality.
Awesome! So glad I found this series!
I like that most everyone can see themselves in this book and laugh at the silly things that happen to all of us in a fantasy world....Light hearted and hilarious!
She portrays the characters so perfectly...You can immediately imagine what is going on in the book.
Too many to choose from.I felt part of this book the whole way through....I laughed ALOT....
I am thrilled to have found Molly Harper books.....I listen to books everyday at work so it is important to have a fun and entertaining books to listen too. I found this in the Jane Jameson series!
The main "lady" made me smile
I am going to read all of her books,
This was an okay novel....The best for me is the humor, without it I would not have enjoyed the book at all. There is nothing from the plot that stands out for me. I have listened to countless vampire novels and unfortunately this one would be at the bottom of my list.
I love Molly Harper's books they are always funny and entertaining . And this book doesn't disappoint. Okay so not the greatest plot, but sometimes you just need a laugh!
The narration was impecable. I must have looked like I was on a weekend pass from the asylum laughing so hard in my car!
It was more original and seemed more real than some of the sappy vampire stories that are out there. Jane is not the femfatale type, she is a more stronge female character and not the week "I need rescueing" all the time. I enjoyed that she was more self-reliable "I'm going to stand on my own" attitude driven character.
Scream with laughter!!!!
I have already recommended this book to other friends. I know they will enjoy it as much as I did!
28 and an avid reader of SciFi/Fantasy books. I tend towards Urban Fantasy and some quality Sci-Fi.
A very interesting take on the usual vampire story. Fans of the Dresden or Iron Druid series will enjoy the comedic delivery and timing of this book. Very entertaining and it has excellent pacing.
