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.

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

    Well acted...well written. Bridget Jones as a vampire meets the Clampetts. Didn't want to stop listening so I could see what happens next!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane


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

    She captures the characters....her timimg is impeccable.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I am on my sixth book by Molly Harper/read by Amanda Ronconi. Will be sad when I have finished the next one.

    Story
    "Entertaining modern vampire romance"

    Molly Harper's books are always quick-witted and packed with clever dialogue (you know those lines you WISH you thought of at the right moment) with fast-moving plots and this one is no exception. Enter Jane Jameson, a small-town Kentucky girl librarian with no love prospects and now, no career prospects. A cruel twist of fate grants her immortality as a vampire, and that's when her life begins to get...well, interesting! The characters are authentic and great, any of us who have had an overbearing mother or sibling rivalry will enjoy the character dynamics here.

    I really enjoy the narration by Amanda Ronconi as well, who gives authentic voices to all of these quirky characters. Perfect vampire romance story for a week at the beach, road trip or workouts at the gym. Highly recommend if you're looking for something along these lines. Also, if you enjoy Molly Harper, try checking out Darynda Jones and Jeanine Frost.

    "Cute Vamp Story for the Non-Vamp Lover"
    What did you love best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    Disclaimer: I am not a fan of vampire novels. Just cannot get into them. But this one was delightful. From the Audible description, the book sounded like a spoof on the vampire genre, and it was, though not in an insulting way. Lighthearted, clever, VERY funny. A cute, quick read with just enough spice to keep it tasty - no pun intended :)


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

    Since I don't read many vampire novels, can't really say. I just know I laughed as much listening to this book as I did listening to Sacre Bleu and Fool by Christopher Moore.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Ronconi delivered this tale with just the right amount of spirit and sarcasm. Like the narrator for the Moore books, she nailed the tone and improved the read.

    Story
    "slow and uneventful"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It needed more action, the story is kind of pointless.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Molly Harper again?

    maybe


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    None, they all are dull. Gabriel's voice is what I refer to as "Debbie downer" and Jane's isn't much better. They are the dullest vampires I've ever read about.


    Do you think Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    After reading the second one...NO! I thought this book was ok, and hoped that the second one would be better, but it's not, it's actually worse.

    "Funny and Fabulous"

    To beat the winter blues, read these books. The leading lady vamp is hilarious, sarcastic, and clever. Ms. Harper even threw in a ghost grandmother with a very active love life.

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

    I prefer audio books over print, as I don't have the time to sit down and read, but I can listen while in the car, running errands or doing housework.


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

    Initially it had similarities to the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood storyline with splashes of Twilight, but I love the comedic element. Jane asks questions I would, and I like her sense of humour... I just love her!


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

    Funnily enough, I don't feel like she's reading it, I feel like I'm hearing her inner thoughts most times... she's very convincing!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really... probably when she was first turned stands out. I just love the comedic take on the good ole Vampire storyline... most are dark and moody. I like that Jane is being "logical" and I love her sarcastic humour.


    Any additional comments?

    Again... I just love Jane's character, and her logical and sarcastic outlook at her new lifestyle / undead-style... and I especially liked the idea of the "undead handbook". I can't wait to listen to the next three books!

    Fun new twist on the whole vampire craze. Characters are flawed and likeable and the narration is spot on. A fun romp through the supernatural!

    Both are awesome but Amanda Ronconi makes it so fun.

    Every word.

    Jane


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

    Yes, this and all the other books by Molly that I have listened to.


    Any additional comments?

    I really, really enjoy this author and this narrator. I had to stop listening with my ear buds at work because people looked at me strangely when I would burst out laughing for no apparent reason.
