When I read the blurb for this book I was captured hook,line and sinker!!I listen to a lot of books while my hubby plays his video games and this book..Show More » had me laughing out loud and the hubby wanted to know what was up with me. I pointed to my ear-buds and he said it must be really funny and it sure was!! The one liners, and the sarcastic view point of Jane was great. I've been told I have a sort of sarcastic sense of humor. I guess that's why I enjoyed it so much. I thought that Amanda Ronconi did an awesome narrating job and look forward to listening to more of her work. I will be buying the rest of this series!!
In the second book, the storyline is focused on her BFF Zeb's wedding and his seriously screwy mom's antics tryin..Show More »g to ruin the wedding. Trying to deal with all the difficulties, Jane becomes more independent and comes into her own. I still think she is a wuss when dealing with family, but I know she does REALLY good in the third book. Another fun book from a fun series
For the whole series:
I liked the premise of the first book a lot. A small town librarian getting shot accidentally and turning into the vampire and then getting mixed up with murder and mayhem. I think the Jane Jamison books are essentially cozy mystery with a vampire twist. It doesn't have the usual fight against the races, apocalyptic prophecy nor the dark outlook other paranormal series often have.
The series is really really funny, especially the snarky, quarky and snide comments Jane makes. Some might compare the series to the Betsy series, but IMHO there is a BIG difference. I actually like the main character! Sometimes I wish she wasn't so nice, but I suppose in real “family feud” people do have love/hate relationship with loved ones just like her and try desperately hard not to ruin what relationship they have. So if you like paranormal stuff but not really into violence, blood, or doomesday story, this is a great series!
I have enjoyed listening to these books so much. They are a laughable side of the paranormal. It was a good romance with a twist. I know I will never ..Show More »look at another bridal shower and wedding the same way again!!!Love the narrator too!! Amanda Ronconi was perfect for the part. Great job!!!
There's no reason for me to go into the background of the "Nice Girls Don't..." series, by now we are all here because we love Molly Harper's writing ..Show More »as well as the narrative talent of Amanda Ronconi. What I will say is this - get this book!!!! If you liked any of Molly Harper's work, then you shouldn't even be doubting this purchase; if you've never listened/read any of Molly's work, then by all means, get this book (though starting at book 1 would be helpful too), but be warned - once you start reading Molly's work, you WILL become addicted!.
*Warning* If you listen to your audiobooks via earphones/earbuds, just be aware that this book will make you look crazy because there will be many times where you cannot help but laugh out loud (I got a lot of funny looks while I was grocery shopping).
