Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1 | [Molly Harper]

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.

    "My Wife Made Me Listen"

    Yes, another vampire romance, but my wife knew that this was one piece of chick lit. I would dig.
    I will never "read" Molly Harper's series; rather, I will always listen to Amanda Ronconi. She is one of the best matches of narrator to material ever. What a delight; she brings out every bit of wit that the clever author comes up with. My favorite is her take on the "Welcome Wagon" lady.
    Our heroine is kind of a southern version of Isabel Spellman, the semi nuts investigator of Lisa Lutz "Spellman" files. This novel is maybe not perfect, but still perfectly delightful. For a first effort, Molly Harper almost knocks it out of the park.

    "Right up there with Sookie Stackhouse!"

    I REALLY enjoyed this book, and kept thinking that Jane Jameson and Sookie Stackhouse (by Charlaine Harris) should get together for some drinks. What a hoot! I'm exciting to me getting the next in the series.

    "WOW!!! Love this series :)"

    I downloaded and listened to all three books in this series in one week. My house was very clean. At first I thought that it might not be my kind of book. It picked up pace and I enjoyed it very much. Then I downloaded two and three and they were just as good.

    "Who cares"

    Initially, the book was funny and presented a unique perspective on vampire life BUT ultimately it was clear that it was more like running commentary about vampire life in KY minus the interesting narrative. Not worth the $$.

    "Funny easy Listen."

    Funny easy fast listen. Is really good series. I even had my teenage son laughing while on a long drive to military base to see his sister. Now, that is a work of art.

    "Loved it!"

    The story was pretty good, I liked the humor, and the 'sexual tension' was subtle but kept one interested. The reader was excellent. Great book, made my walks go faster.

    "Mixed feelings"

    At first, it DOES sound like a Sookie rip-off: a southern girl in an old house inherited after her grand-aunt, with a handsome vamp that is her neighbour and owns a mansion nearby. Does the name "Gabriel Knight" tell you anything? Here, you'll have Gabriel Nightingale. :)
    However, pretty soon I notice this was not the biggest problem with this book. I had problems adjusting to the sitcom humour pervading the story, especially the few first chapters. Secondly, there is no substantial storyline for me for about 75% of the novel. Most of the book seems like a blog about a newly turned vampire. I mean Sookie's novels are entertaining because something actually happens there - there's action. This is not the case here. It seems as if the author realised - halfway through the book - that she had to add something more to the story at some point, otherwise nobody would want to read further.
    All in all, surprisingly, I quite enjoyed listening to this audiobook. Does this have to do with the excellent job of Amanda Ronconi? Perhaps. I am sure I have to take a break from our Jane here for a while.
