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.

    Every now and then I will find a series to listen to. Something easy and light. I like knowing that for a little while I will not have to spend hours debating about what book to read next. The books are funny and entertaining. The narration is great as well. If you're looking for something easy and engaging, these books are perfect.

    Travel is essential, snowboarding a need. I love speed: cars, motorcycles, boards. Food is more than a requirement; on the best days it's a supreme indulgence.

    "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 :)

    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!

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

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

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to be better than the print version?

    I've never read the print version but the audio version was great in most part due to the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane of course! Jane is funny, smart and the saddest version of a "scary vampire" I've ever read. this was the first in the series and I won't stop until I've listened to them all.


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

    Because of Amanda Ronconi I listened to the entire series. and I bought other audio books from this author simply because she was the narrator. She is grrrreat!


    Any additional comments?

    I dare someone to listen to this series and NOT laugh out loud. Go on, I DARE ya! :c)

    Amanda Ronconi is great in this performance. She captures the mood of the book perfectly and the book itself is great fun.

    I recommend this for anyone who likes a good chuckle and plenty of snark!!

    "Very enjoyable, light, humorous, vamp romance"

    I picked this book out more or less at random as something light to listen to. I've been having difficulty reading actual text and I've turned to audiobooks to "read" more. I am particularly glad I picked this one.



    Jane is a librarian who suddenly discovers herself to be unemployed, gets drunk at a bar, gets shot (mistaken for a deer), and has the choice of being dead, or undead. A few days later she wakes up a vampire. She has a best friend who is almost as dotty as she is, and an overbearing mother. But now that she's undead she has her favourite (dead) relative to keep her company and a suave, attractive sire who she fancies something rotten, but he did turn her into a vampire. On top of that, someone seems to have it in for her, and she needs a new job.



    At least she lives in a world which knows vampires exist. The setting is wonderfully cynical; just my kind of concept. The existance of vampires was revealed as part of a disability lawsuit. Each chapter begins with a quote from the "Guide for the Newly Undead," and the local vampire community holds meet-and-greet parties for newbie vampires, hosted by a vampire property agent (how could anyone tell the difference).



    The narration on this one is good. Amanda Ronconi pulls off the accents, even an English one, nicely and it felt like she enjoyed reading the story even as I laughed my way through it.



    I'll be putting the second in the series on my wishlist.

    "Fun and funny characters"

    I just love this series of books! The interplay between the characters is very funny and the books just zip along. The narration by Amanda Ronconi is spot on and the story is very engaging.
    As a 40 something truck driver who usually listens to Sci-Fi when travelling up and down the country you might not think that these books are aimed at me but I'm glad I gave them a try.

    "Very funny modern twist on vampire tale"

    If you like Charlaine Harris then you will like this. Molly Harper writes with a funny, dry wit. Her tale of Jane Jameson's turning and life with her family, friends and boyfriend/sire is very engaging and had me laughing out loud while listening.

    Any additional comments?

    <br/><br/> I really loved this book. I just love Jane, she's so funny and so is her Great Aunt Jettie! I also loved Gabriel, Dick, Andrea, Jeb and Jolene! I enjoyed the story and Jane's initial adjustment to Vampire life although she still has to earn acceptance in the undead community. Poor Jane was the subject of a hate campaign in the story with some unknown targeting her to try and drive her out of the community or kill her. <br/>She also has to deal with a nightmare family, well her dad's understanding and supportive, but her mum is high strung and very interfering, constantly trying to change Jane. Her sister is also scheming and always trying to put her down, not to mention being jealous that their Aunt Jettie left her house and everything in it to Jane when her sister is quite covetous of the house and the antiques within it.<br/>I look forward to seeing how things go with her family as they have not handled news of her turning very well, well again her Dad is coping well and supportive of Jane but the rest of her living family is not dealing well with the news.<br/>I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series!

    I'm just not sure about this book, don't think it's really for me, it does have an interesting concept concept and is funny in parts, however i think I was supposed to find it a lot funnier than I did. I don't think I'll carry on with the series.

    "Light fluffy fun very entertaining"

    Bought this as part of a 2 for 1 as I wasnt sure I would like it. Not sure what I expected but its a really good listen.

    If you want a gritty urban vampire story with lots of sex and violence you are in the wrong place. This is just a bit of fun where the lead character has become a lovable vampire

    I really enjoyed the humour - Some laugh out loud moments which is a bit awkward if in public listening on headphones.

    The narration is absolutely superb - probably makes the book better listened to than read though as I havent read it in print I cant be sure.

    The story is fairly predictable and very cliched right down to the evil baddie explaining the whole thing to our heroine whilst preparing to finish her off
    The violence in this book is cartoon violence of the mild peril type
    I loved the interaction with her parents - how do you explain you are now undead?
    The chapter headings in the helpful handbook "Guide to the recently undead" are hilarious

    If you want a light hearted none taxing book to pass a few hours whilst doing boring things its great - I already downloaded the next 2 whilst the 2 for one offer was still on but will listen to other books first. I need something a bit more substantial as I previously read the first naked werewolf book and 2 in a row is enough for now but I will definitely be listening to books 2 and 3 in a week or so

    "Okay if you like stories about vamps"

    I’m not normally into vampires and werewolves, but gave Harper’s Naked Werewolf series a try when one of the books was part of a 2 for 1 promotion. I thoroughly enjoyed Harper’s humour and wit in that series (particularly book 1) so thought I would try some of her other works.

    This story was generally light and fun with traces of the wit and humour I so enjoyed in the naked werewolf series, but I just didn’t connect to it in the same way. It relied too heavily on the assumption that I would like it because it was about vampires rather than having a strong presence of its own.

    The narration is excellent.

    Oh, this book was so boring. It started off so well, but then just slowed to treacle and I really lost interest. I liked Jane's self deprecating humour, but there wasn't enough going on to really hold my interest

    Did not finish - only got to about a third of the way through.

    Performance: Amanda Ronconi narrated well, with distinct characters. I think I'd try her narration again
