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.

I love the this series... can't wait for book 4. Highly recommend this author.
Yet another audio book I couldn't finish. Got through a couple of chapters but just couldn't force myself to keep listening. I don't know why everything thinks this is so hilarious. Didn't laugh out loud once - not even a little. If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you won't like this.
Love Molly Harper, and enjoy listening to Amanda Ronconi. This book sucked me in, and I literally was downloading the next book the following day. Harper's writing is excellent. Spit coffee out a couple of times while listening, so I don't recommend drinking liquids at the same time.
I loved this goofy heroine. Made me laugh out loud many times, she is dying after being shot as a deer, gets turned by a vamp, and fights it all the way. Lots of southern charm thru out. Disfunctional family. crazy ghost, Loved it!! headed on to the rest of the series...
I love Molly Harpers stories and Amanda Ronconi's narrations. Well written and superbly narrated, I love the characters Ms. Harper creates. Another winner!
Super entertaining....funny, and such a nice change from the super sappy Vamp book. WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH OUTLOUD! On to the next Molly Harper book!!
I'm 52 and enjoy sifi, history, funny romance, fantasy type books. I give my views as to how a book is based on my emotions.
I've heard a few of Molly Harper's books now and loved them all and Amanda Ronconi does a great job reading it.!
This book is a mood-lifter, satisfying, funny and a great resource for quick retorts! The characters are all CHARACTERS and I love how Amanda Ronconi gives them that extra oomph of personality. Love this series!! Can I be a funny as hell vampire when I grow up? Please?
In one book Molly Harper has entered my favor author list. Loved the humor in this book. Not only will I follow the adventures of Jane in subsequent books, but the sub-characters can easily stand on their own. Amanda Ronconi's narration is delightful. Harper and Ronconi are an unbeatable combination!
Molly Harper has endowed her main character, Jane, with a quick dry wit and believable personality, making this an extremely enjoyable story. Despite having read most of the other authors in this genre, I found that I was not tempted to draw comparisons with other vampire lore or story lines as this book is more than capable of entertaining from it's own perspective. In a nutshell, this heroine is not perfect, she sticks her foot in her mouth more often than a politician, refrains from declaring undying love to the hero of the story, even if he is drop dead gorgeous, and is over the age of 18 (meaning that sex scenes don't suddenly stop at the neck), who happens to have unreliable telepathic skills and has conversations with the ghost of her great aunt. Jane is a heroine I can really relate to (I'm a ghost tour guide with unreliable telepathic skills, if you're wondering). This book was so funny that I started playing it again as soon as it concluded. A terrific book with great narration by Amanda Ronconi. Buy it and laugh!
