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.

Laugh outloud funny

This is one of the best listens I have had in a very long time. The story is witty, sarcastic and funny. Molly Harper ranks up there with Janet Evanovich when it comes to humor and sarcasm working together. I will definately be following this author.

LOL

Molly's book are wonderfully funny, not a stinker in the lot. She also has another series just as good as this one, it centers around werewolf's, they too are a fun read (listen). Molly gets five stars in my book.

Weak plot

What did you like best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs? What did you like least?

I liked the humor and wit of the main character, but at times it sounded too rehearsed and forced. Her personality is too cliché same as her 'sire's'. Some of the other character were more interesting than the two main ones.

Has Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs turned you off from other books in this genre?

Hard to say at this point

Which scene was your favorite?

All the scenes with Dick Cheney

What would have made this romance irresistible?

The setting should have been in a more interesting place, maybe a larger city. What are all this vampires doing in a tiny town?

Any additional comments?

Lacks originality

Neat Book, Looking Forward to More

Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs is a cute and snarky vampire book that peeked my curiosity. The book is a standard female turned vampire story in many respects. Yet, the author adds just enough original dialog to set it apart from the rest. The way the author injects humor into the dialog and narration helps keep the book fun and lighthearted. It is written in diary style, from the position of the main character, and could easily be produced into a TV show in terms of form and function. The story, world, and characters all feel a bit constrained and simplistic, but I had a smile on my face at some point during each chapter. It was the consistent smiles that made me want to listen more and brought me to the conclusion that the book was fun, comforting, and silly.

The book started a bit slow and the narration can take some getting used to. I had to stick through a few chapters before I got a feel for the book. At first, I was not sure that it was going to work, but the book just clicked for me after a few chapters (after several new characters were introduced). The narration added personality to the story, but the attempted southern accents can take some getting used to. Some of the voices were funny (Missy comes to mind), but the male voices used by the narrator are far from manly in my opinion. This does not mean the narration was bad, but it helped make the story harder to take seriously and kept the book jovial.

I liked this book and thought it was a fun audible. The best complement I can give Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs is that after listening to the conclusion I immediately purchased the second book.

Too many plot holes and no character development

Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

No more Molly Harper books for me. <br/><br/>I usually LOVE these kinds of books. I love the sort of cheesy, supernatural romance type series, like the Nighthuntress series etc. But this... Molly Harper is really funny and clever, and her writing style is totally entertaining. BUT, she needs some help with plot and character development. There were so many glaring holes in the plot, and the relationships/motivations of the characters made no sense. I couldn't even finish the audiobook. I forget the main character's name, but she is a total idiot. There were about a million times in the first third of the book (all I got through) where she did things that were so ridiculous that I was irritated with her. There was no chemistry with her and her vampire sire/lover because they barely spent any time together, yet from the first meeting he is supposedly in love with her? Why? Ugh. I did not like this book. I'd read one other book of Molly Harper's, The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires, which I liked well enough, except for the awful, ridiculous ending. I wasn't sure I wanted to read another book by her, but this series got such great reviews. Now I'm definitely done with Molly Harper's books.The narration was fine enough, but she sort of has a matter of fact tone of voice.

A very cute way of looking at vampires

I would not have normally gotten this book, but none of my normal authors have anything new out yet, so I decided to try this one out. I'm not disappointed that I did. This is a very cute story and Ms. Harper nailed the small town mentallity on the head. I know, because I have lived in several small towns over the years. Jane's family reminds me alot of my own and that's no joke! Jane is an interesting character and Gabriel is very mysterious, I would like to know more about him and his past. Ms. Harper does say that he will let us know at "A later time."

If your looking for the normal vampire story, then this one is not for you. This is more along the lighter side of vampires and is a much refreshing look at them. The one thing I did not like about this book is the narrator needs to work more on the male voices. But for the most part this is lighthearted and will make you laugh at times.

Cracked me up!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously it is Jane! She is so funny! I love her humor.

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

Great voices, all different. Also great timing.

Any additional comments?

Well it's a silly concept and a silly book, right? There's nothing wrong with that! I had just finished a rather heavy book and needed a good laugh, and that is exactly what I got. So that is great! I do have to say that I say the ending coming from the get-go, but other than that, I loved it!

Just Couldn't Enjoy it No Matter How Hard I Tried

Any additional comments?

During my first attempt to listed to this book I thought maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this supposedly funny book. I tried again two days later and again two days after that. It felt like the author was trying to be "oh so witty" in every sentence (way too much!!!) at the expense of any plot whatsoever. I wanted to like this book to start a new series. Not only did I not laugh at a single attempt of wit but it actually became annoying after a while. Rarely am I picky enough to give up on a book. It might have worked better reading it to myself although I thought the narrator was just fine. The story itself was weak, not witty.<br/><br/>I gave it three sincere tries but finally had to put a stake in it.

Laughing in the face of death!

What did you love best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

What's not to love? In less than 30 min, I loved Jane. She's funny, sarcastic, irreverent & wouldn't be afraid to point out my spelling mistakes or misuse of words. Besides, she loves Jane Austen. Not even half way trough this first book, I was downloading the next two. I'm usually not a fan of vampire books, but the humor & characters in this story are wonderful.

What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

Amanda Ronconi was a good fit for Jane. Her timing is great & has a nice dry voice for the sarcastic moments which are every few seconds.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Lots & lots of laughing throughout the book.

Any additional comments?

I recommend them to anyone who enjoys a quick whit, bad puns, redneck jokes & has a dark sense of humor.
