Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.
Now the children's-librarian-turned-vampire is reviving with plenty of Faux Type O, some TLC from her colorful friends and family, and her plans for a Brave New Jane. Step One: Get her newly renovated occult bookstore off the ground. Step Two: Support her best friend, Zeb, and his werewolf bride as they prepare for the impending birth of their baby...or litter. Step Three: Figure out who's been sending her threatening letters, and how her hostile pen pal is tied to Gabriel. Because for this nice girl, surviving a broken heart is suddenly becoming a matter of life and undeath.

This series is great! The perfect cross between the zany characters of True Blood and the drama of Twilight. Devoured all three books and can't wait for more. Well read by Amanda Ronconi, who has become my favorite narrator so far.
I think it's tragic that Harper remains relatively obscure while the big time authors like Harrison get all the limelight. If you enjoy this book, know that the series continues beyond book 3 but isn't available on audible.
Sookie Stackhouse series. Funny with a confident female heroine.
Yes, I was entertained
The lead characters quick wit
She delivers the true emotions of the characters
I could have
I enjoy Molly Harpers books and I have also Looked for other storied narrated by Amanda Ronconi
I enjoyed the story and won't change the story. It was entertaining and takes you out of the now.
Yes, she does a good job.
I love paranomal thriller/horror novels. Favorite authors are Molloy Harper, Laurell K Hamilton, Chlorie Neil, Sheryln Kenyon & Steven King
I really love the narrator, she brings the story alive. The story was really fun and touches on real life issues in a supernatural way.
Jane was my favor character. She is quirky, compassionate, confused, smart and has a unique outlook on life.
This book make me laugh even though it was not a comedy.
After ready this book I had to read all the others in the series. It is definitely one of my favorite series.
Yes to my female friends, not so much my guy friends. Fun. light listen.
The family was a hoot but also believable.
The performance was great!!! As a read, this story may not have kept my attention but the performance really made it fun.
I always like Jane's snarkiness. I'm not a huge fan of Amanda Ronconi, she doesn't have the range of voices that some of my favorite narrators do but she's starting to grow on me. The story isn't as good as the last one, but it's still fairly entertaining if not a bit predictable. Overall, not bad.
I really enjoyed this entire series. I wasnt looking for anything heavy, just some fun and light "listening" for my commute.
The narrator has a great voice! I really loved her style. (It reminded me of something between Julia Roberts in Steal Magnolias and Emma Stone in The Help.)
The story itself was really easy listening. Something I could listen to, forget about for a few days then jump right back in. Though, there were a few times where I actually stayed in my car 10 minutes longer than I needed to, just to hear what was about to happen!
If you have read the Betsey/Undead books and liked them, youll like the similar style of humor in this book. (Only, I think if Betsey ever met Jane, she'd want to give her a makeover and burn all her shoes...heck, after the description of some of her footwear, I want to burn them!)
While the main character is a "vampire," I wouldnt necessarily limit this book to the vampire genre. There is a lot of humanity to the characters and even if you dont have one of THOSE sisters/mothers/friends, there is still someone in this story you can relate to.
Worth the purchase!
"Lighthearted and funny"
I didn't like this one as much as the others and in my heart it was 3.5 stars not 4 but I rounded up ;D Molly harpers books are always worth a chuckle and this one entertained and amused. I'm really glad that janes family issues are beginning to be resolved. I kind of missed Gabriel as he wasn't in it much but that was a key to the storyline. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series :)
