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)
No probably not, unless I forgot their names and didn't realise they were connected to this book.
All of it, I don't usually go for the one star score, but this book deserved it. Okay, here we go.. This book was worse than the twilight series.. Probably not worse than 50 shades, but that was written by a stupid little girl with no writing experience. But yes, this book is so predictable and so cliche, why are vampires books so lame these days?
I felt like her accent was fake, and if it isn't, then it just sounded really bad. She also didn't react with the correct feeling in voice for certain parts.
I don't want to sound like "one of those people", seriously I don't usually leave this bad of a review, but I'm going to say all of it.. Just the main character was so dumb, you're listening to it and the whole time, thinking: "okay don't do that.." "Ahh don't be so stupid.." "Okay she seriously isn't going to be dumb enough to.. Okay she is."
If you are truly board and you like some cheap drama, dictated to you with a bad southern accent, than this book might just be for you.
While the story was very good and the jokes were funny the out and out stealing from the Sookie Stackhouse books is too much. It just bothers me so much I can't let myself just enjoy. If you can just ignore that little detail then it is fine.
Only if I checked it out from Public Library.
Only if I checked it out from Public Library. Book was not intriguing enough for me to want to pay for it.
Some of the writing was cute enough to make me smile and I did finish it. It didn't keep my attention very strongly, though.
I wanted to like this and I did more or less....the characters are likeable and the writing is good but the story just wasn't enough for me. It's just that I'm more of Jane Yellowrock kind of girl. This was pleasant......and fluffy....It was ok if that's your thing, but it's the last cute book I buy.
This rather simplistic and sophomoric tale of blood and lust might do for a slumber party, but for those of us whose years belie their bunny slippers, there are other tomes to stay up with...
