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.

Say something about yourself!
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.
She doesn't read male characters in a realistic manner.
Really none were memorable.
This was probably the worst paranormal book I've ever read.
One joke after another with no plot development or any character development.
I love Charlaine Harris books, but this isn't even close. Not worth the money!
I bought this book during a "first in series" special from audible. While I enjoy both Chick Lit and Paranormal romances I know there are more bad books out there than good ones. This was a very pleasant surprise! The characters were very likable and the performance was SPOT ON! I laughed out loud several times - which I almost never do. I highly recommend this book for a bit of light "reading."
I found this audiobook so boring I couldn't finish it. Extremely disappointing. Not worth the money.

I haven't laughed so hard since Evanovich! Molly Harper is my new favorite author. Her sarcastic humor is so much fun to hear. The narrarator did a great job. Don't hesitate to download all of her books. I did and I am not sorry!
Satire, witty, humor
No other books in the vampire/romance genre compare. This book is in a leauge of its own. No matter if you loved or hated other series like twilight, you will appreciate the way that this book is able to poke fun at the entire gere in a light and amusing way.
love her voice. perfectly accented. She pulls off the sarcasm and wit without being whiney
i think the title is enough of a tag line
I love books!
I am not at all sure that I would want to listen to another book from the Jane Jameson books.It is kind of entertaining and I do not think it is bad. I just feel like I am listening to a sit com about a newly made vampire, her sire, her best friend ext. the thing is I find myself waiting for a laugh track. there are some funny moments but there are lots of times I feel the author is trying too hard and is missing the mark. I seriously could see this as a TV series and some people would like it a lot. I am very picky about sit- coms I would compare "Nice Girls Don't have fangs" to "New Girl" as a vampire
The narration was very good, and I give Ms. Ronconi props for being able to get the range of voices out there.
Fantasy Romance books
The ending, which I will not spoil, but the main character and her father share a moment.
A light, quick moving tale of vamps and werewolves, overlaid with snarky southern wit and charm. The performance was excellent, lending the proper southern twang without making me want to strangle her. Unless she was doing a character that needed to be strangled, of course!
It was cute, but predictable. I understand it's the first in a series, so it leaves you hanging.
It was a bit childish, except for the sex.
the author has an original perspective on a vampires life.
