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.

    "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!!

    "Vamp Fic that even dudes will love"
    If you could sum up Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs in three words, what would they be?

    funny, fast, sassy


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

    The awakening scene when she survives being shot by being turned and then vamps out on her best friend who didn't know quite how to respond.


    Did Amanda Ronconi do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Her characterizations made listening a joy


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

    It definitely is very entertaining and would listen to in one sitting.

    Yes


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

    "Sookie and Twilight with humor"

    After reading and laughing through much of How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf and The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf I had to try the Jane Jameson books. Audible was having a sale and Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs was $5.00 .. so what the heck I grabbed a copy.

    This 1st book of the series deals with Jane Jameson, a fired librarian that after being out on a drinking binge has an accident and shot like a deer. Lucky for her she was being followed by a handsome man (vampire) from the bar that turns Jane. The book deals with her transition period, find a job, living with the ghost of her grandmother and having a very handsome mysterious sire is Gabriel.

    I was a little disappointed there were traces of Twilight and the Sookie Stackhouse books but unlike either this was funny and Molly Harper has such quick wit. I really would give the book more of a 3 ?? stars mostly because it was entertaining, humorous and easy to listen to while driving in the car.

    Amanda Ronconi does a great job narrating!

    "Nice Girls Don't,,,"

    I have been horribly disappointed with this genre overall, and so I avoided this series for months, but I was looking to burn some credits, so I got Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs. It kept me entertained and amused, and I have since purchased the rest in the series and several more by this author/reader combination. They make a good team. The books are funny, and the reader manages to convey that well (some just can't).

    "Buy this one...buy the next 3 now."

    I am a die-hard Sookie Stackhouse fan so I was a little leery buying this first book...but I did and am very pleased I did. Before I finished the first one, I bought the next 2 and the 4th one today...since it just came out. Great characters, good storyline and excellent narration. If you are a Sookie/True Blood fan you will love Jane Jameson. I like this series because the undead get to do a little more and the characters aren't quite so violent (yet) and there are little mishaps along the way. Very much lighter than Sookie Stackhouse, but just as whimsical and entertaining. Love the cast of characters and with each novel Jane seems to get into more "situations". Highly recommend all of Jane Jameson Series. Buy them all now because you will want to go onto the next one as soon as you're finished. I could read (listen) to them over and over again.

    "Very shallow story"
    Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    No it seems me too shallow and boring.

    She improved the story adding her performance


    What character would you cut from Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    The protagonist

    "Just fun!"
    What other book might you compare Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to and why?

    The sookie stackhouse novels, both are fun vampire series with a southern twist & sense of humor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Loved the very opening when she dies, sounds morbid, but it really is funny the way Molly Harper writes it!

    What did you love best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    Molly Harper has a great sense of humour (Canadian spelling). Don't look for anything deep in this series, just good light entertainment, and quite a few laughs. Amanda Ronconi gives the perfect touch of sarcasm and wit in her readings of each character. Nice way to de-stress or just relax after a busy day!

    "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.

    Any additional comments?



    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.

    What did you like best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs? What did you like least?

    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!
