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.

    "Have some fun!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Amanda Ronconi's reading is so light and funny. She enhances the book. I've read Molly Harper's books and truly prefer to listen to them because of Ms Ranconi's narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way a normal sedate life can be turned on its head in a night.


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

    I have and this is just as well done. I do enjoy her readings so much I have wish listed book by authors I did not know just to hear her read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jane went back to the library after all her changes.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoy the fun of the material and the joy of the read!

    Story
    "A cross between Sookie and Queen Betsey."

    I love books like this! Every once in awhile you just need fluff you can read that you don't have to THINK about, and this book fit the bill. Being from California, I found the southern references hilarious, because we just don't have "rules" like that!

    I think the narrator was fabulous with her accents (In my head, I can still hear "Haaaay Shuuuuug!") and the situations Jane finds herself in are just too funny.

    All in all, this is a fabulous book! Easy reading, REALLY funny, and an amusing piece of fun literature.

    "Not bad. It made me laugh."
    Would you listen to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs again? Why?

    I might listen to this again, but it was almost a rip-off of Charlaine Harris's books.


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

    I liked the humor in the book. It made me laugh.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    When she read the book, you feel like it is the character actually speaking.


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

    No.

    "Nice Read"

    I purchased this book because it was listed under "How Should I use My Credit" and because I love series. This book was a pretty good. It didn't "wow" me, but it was a nice read. I did enjoy the humor. Overall, a good book, but I don't think I will purchase another from this series. I will probably just find it at the library.

    "Laugh out loud funny"

    This one is indescribable. I was listening with my headphones on and kept laughing out loud making my friends and family wonder about my sanity. The next ones in the series are only funnier. Take a spasticly wise cracking woman with a penchant for getting into trouble and make her a Vampire. It only gets her into more trouble. And she always has something to say even when she should keep her mouth shut. I love this book!

    "Intriguing Idea"

    Single librarian turned into vampire.

    Hmmm ... has potential.

    I'm not really "into" the paranormal fad but recently have found myself indulging in books in the genre.

    My husband noticed this one and brought it to my attention. He thought I might find the book summary just "funny" enough to be interested.

    And yes, the summary made it sound like a book with a bit of comedy in it.

    Librarian gets pink slip with a gift card to a local bar, gets stinking, has car trouble on the way home, decides to walk the rest of the way, gets mistaken for a deer by a poaching shiner. I mean, that is just all flat out almost "silly" and as the premise for a book, should make for a witty and amusing tale.

    I was disappointed.

    Sure, she is shot, wakes three days later as a vampire, goes home and sees her dead great-aunt who had left her the house in her will, deals with family members who believe that aunt made a big mistake leaving the house to her, deals with family who believe she needs to get a life and find a new job, and deals with the vampire who made her, deals with vampire politics and intrigue when another vampire is actually murdered and is dead for good, plus deals with an old friend who starts attending a support group for friends of "others."

    While I grinned at the turn of events toward the very end of the book, I wasn't impressed enough to bother going any further in the series.

    Molly Harper is one of my favorites and Amanda Ronconi is right there with her! Molly Harper is so funny and I can't imagine anyone but Amanda bringing her characters to life! I have listened to this collection of books over and over! Well worth the listen!

    "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.

    Everything. It was brilliant. Absolutely hilarious, I mean laugh out loud funny. Amanda Ronconi delivers each character brilliantly and doesn't make them sound fake. She manages to portray male characters well too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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!
