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.

    "great fun!"

    A switch from many "vampire" type stories. Its fun and enjoyable following the main characters adjust. Molly Harper is fast becoming one of my favorite authors, and Amanda Ronconi is a great narrater. This is on my "must read" series.

    "Wirklich nett"

    Ein sehr unterhaltsames Buch und leicht zum Hören. Die Geschichte ist nett und ich musste oft auflachen...Amanda hat einen tollen Job gemacht und ich habe ihre unterschiedlichen Stimmen wirklich genossen. Alles in allem ein tolles Buch für den Weg in die Arbeit, zum Aufheitern und leicht zu hören.

    "I Don't Like Vampire Stories.......But"

    This story is light, funny, and intriguing. I really don't like vampire stories, but this one is an exception. The narrator does an excellent job of promoting the tone of the story.
    I'll even read more of this series.

    Story
    "A great start to a fresh funny vampire series."

    Next Sunday and Monday Stephanie and I are reviewing this years Molly Harper releases – her Werewolf books. Since I have a “book of choice” today I thought I would take the opportunity to highlight Molly Harper’s other series, Vampires – The Jane Jameson Series, which has a new installment due out the beginning of next year. Both of her series are laugh out loud funny and the perfect stress relievers for the busy holiday season. This would be a great opportunity to get caught up on the series and be ready for the next Vampire book when it comes out this spring. The version I have is the audio version.

    Her Vampire series starts with “Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs”. This series is based on the character Jane Jameson and follows her character throughout the entire series. So if you like Sookie books or the Cat and Bones series then this would be a fit for you.

    Jane Jameson is a self-professed nice girl with a quick sense of humor and a passion for trivia. The story starts with her being fired by her beastly boss and handed a twenty-five dollar Shenanigans Gift Certificate instead of a severance check. With Shenanigans being her only choice for drowning her sorrows in the two light town of Half Moon Hollow she proceeds to try to come to terms with her miserable life of being an almost virgin, now former librarian over many, many Electric Lemonades. This is where she meets the tall, yummy stranger, Gabriel. 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.

    Upon awakening Jane has to come to terms with all the changes undead life has to offer, including how to tell her family. As Jane would say, “Thank God there is a hand book!” And after some strange occurrences around her it appears that someone is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. Luckily she has her faithful ever loyal friend Jeb and the new blessing of being able to see her recently deceased favorite aunt in her ghostly form to help her along the way. She quickly meets new friends in the vampire community and starts to find out that being undead isn’t that bad.

    Ms. Harper does an incredible job making each character strong and funny. They work seamlessly together to create a fun cast that leaves the reader anxious to get to know more about each one of them. Although there is a nice plot that keeps the story going and there is the hope of a growing connection with Gabriel what really makes this series great is the humor and the interaction of the characters. Amanda Ronconi does the audio on all the Molly Harper books. She does an excellent job with the character voices and delivering the lines in a way that really brings Ms. Harper's comedic style to full light. If you haven't listened to audio before this is a great series to start with. The plot and characters are easy to follow and are perfect for grabbing a few minutes here and there while trying to deal with the crazy holiday season. Sneak a few minutes of laugh out loud stress relief in for yourself. Enjoy!

    "Short and cute but not great"
    What did you like best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs? What did you like least?

    I thought this was an okay book. It was short and cute but seemed to me like it was trying to be like the Queen Betsy series too much. I would have like more interaction with and character development of Gabriel. I could relate to the family dynamic but the mother and sister seemed a bit over-the-top. They were exaggerated archetypes and started to be a little less believable at the end.


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

    I haven't listened to books ready by Amanda Ronconi before. She was very good; authentic accents and good character voice separation. I could immediately tell which character was speaking before their name was stated. I can't blame not loving the book on her. My only tiny criticism was the small hesitation before


    Was Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs worth the listening time?

    This was a shorter story so I feel it was worth the listening time. I don't think I would feel the same way if it was longer.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to it but won't pursue the series.

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

    Cute kind of like the true blood series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Molly Harper? Why or why not?

    Yes I will be getting the next book in the series.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I felt like the voices were ok but could have been better.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    for the most part, yes.

    "very funny!"
    What made the experience of listening to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs the most enjoyable?

    The reader, Amanda Ronconi, does a great job. I think she comes off as really being Jane. She makes the character seem real and personal and so easy to identify with. You almost expect you could arrange to meet her (Jane)!


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't sure about this series. I enjoyed reading Twilight (but am not a rabid Twi-fan, lol!) but was a little leery of the vast amount of Vampire fiction out there now. The reviews for this book got me to try it. Everyone said it was funny. I agree. I laughed out loud, over and over again. The
