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.

Great at first

This book seemed like a fun read/listen at first. Loved the narrator and the writing was light and humorous. But then, it just felt like it was going nowhere. and the "funny" became annoying. Couldn't finished it and returned it.

Fun but lacking

Cute story, but lacking in any real intriguing storyline or plot. I was 3/4 of the way through before I realized I still had no idea what the actual plot was other than she becomes a vampire and we learn about her adjusting to that with the help of the "guide to the undead" book.

Undead and trying not to die

I debated on giving this 3 stars. I finally decided 3.5 so I rounded it up to 4. The first half was hard for me to get in to. I have only listened to Where the Wild Things Bite. I loved it. I think maybe this is one of those series that the first book is getting to know the characters. It had some hilarious moments. I laughed so hard when Jane was mistaken for a deer and shot. It's not funny but is. Lol. This is what led to her being found by a vampire and turned.

The narrator is good but annoying in this book. I'm not crazy about her voice. She does great on different characters but Jane's voice sometimes gets to me. Especially when she says 'mama'.

Jane's family sucks! They treat her so bad. I felt bad for her. Like I said, nothing much happens for the first half of the book. But the second half is funny. I loved getting to know her friend and his new girlfriend. As for the whole big mystery of who is trying to kill Jane and why, I wasn't very impressed. I'm glad I listened to it though because of the other book in the series. I plan on trying all of them. It was really good and funny.

Molly Harper + Amanda Ronconi = perfection

Fun, light and thoroughly entertaining. All of her books are wonderful and Amanda Ronconi is the perfect voice that makes the stories come alive.

Funny!!

Where does Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 5

What did you like best about this story?

It's ridiculously silly...in a good way! I've laughed or had a smile on my face through out the entire book. I guess I should've expected that from this author/narrator combo, but still. I actually snorted water into my timely-placed hand once.

What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her narration allows me to differentiate between character and, though her men's voices are not as fabulous as her (southern-dawl) women, she's really great.

Any additional comments?

I found this book really entertaining and a quick read. It brought a little supernatural silliness into a couple days :)

This is a must-have series!!

I could go on and on about Molly Harper's wittiness and talent.... She is one of my favorite top 5 authors ever... But when she teamed up with Amanda Ronconi, oh my! What a pair! Ronconi's spot-on vocals and her ability to bring Harper's characters to life always leaves me smiling and begging for more!

Love Molly Harper

It could do without the explicit sex scenes but it's a good book. Good story, good dialogue. Can even re-listen.

Jane is hilarious!!!!!

Would you listen to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs again? Why?

maybe....I thought it started slow....but it was still pretty good...and Jane is a hoot!!!

What other book might you compare Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to and why?

Hmmmm....maybe The care and feeding of dead vampires.....also by Molly Harper...I loved it!!

Which scene was your favorite?

The Library scene where she freaks out and makes them clean up near the end.....I was proud! And her fight to save her family....

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

yes and no....once you get passed the beginning.....yes....

Any additional comments?

Molly Harper has a gift for sarcasm and quick wit,,,,this is the 3rd book I have listened to by her and she never disappoints! I will be listening to all the Jane Jameson books!

Molly Harper is a master of wit. Every one of her books made me laugh out loud many ,many times. It might not be for everyone but if you like Jeanine Frost and Ilona Andrews ,you'll like her. And reader is great

Fang-tastic!

If you are a lover of the Sookie Stackhouse - True Blood books, you'll love this!
It's funny, refreshing and made me smile. It's nowhere near as ermmm.... 'adult' or 'naughty' as the Charlaine Harris books but a good listen. I really liked the narrator, she has a great voice and accent. I listened to the whole book in three days (whilst doing house-work) and have just downloaded the next one which I'm looking forward to.

Highly derivative: Sookie Stackhouse with fangs

I bought this on the strength of the other reviews. In fairness, if I'd been in a coma for the last five years and never come across a Southern-virginal-beautiful-oddball-girl-with-supernatural-powers type heroine, then I would have been quite impressed by this book and its story of an alternative world ridden with supernatural beings. However, having worked my way through most of the True Blood books and dabbled in much of the rest of the genre, I have to say that this is a profoundly unimaginative rip off and basically more of the same - only Sookie has a different name and is a vampire, rather than telepathic. There are slightly more jokes, but nothing that laugh out loud so it can't, imho, even claim to be a satirical version of the same.

If you've run out of True Blood/Twilight/etc. etc. and are desperate for a new fix, this might be just up your street, but if you feel that the whole vampires coming out of the closet story line has been done to death, then I wouldn't recommend this title at all.

Charming, funny, could not put it down!!

I am someone who normally likes the Black dagger brotherhood type of books, but so pleased I tried this book. The characters sense of humour is great making me laugh out loud. Just a touch of romance, very funny and a great start to a series. I have just bought books 2 and 3.

nice surprise

My first ever audio book, was nicely surpriced. Laugh out loud funny with an interesting plot. I liked it so much that i'm going to buy the series in paper back. I recommend this series to any one that enjoys funny female vampire stories.
