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.

©2009 Molly Harper White (P)2010 Audible, Inc.

    "Surprisingly Delightful!"

    I bought this book during a "first in series" special from audible. While I enjoy both Chick Lit and Paranormal romances I know there are more bad books out there than good ones. This was a very pleasant surprise! The characters were very likable and the performance was SPOT ON! I laughed out loud several times - which I almost never do. I highly recommend this book for a bit of light "reading."

    "Boring and Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    I found this audiobook so boring I couldn't finish it. Extremely disappointing. Not worth the money.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    "Laugh Out Loud Vampire Series!"

    I haven't laughed so hard since Evanovich! Molly Harper is my new favorite author. Her sarcastic humor is so much fun to hear. The narrarator did a great job. Don't hesitate to download all of her books. I did and I am not sorry!

    "Southern hospitality meets the undead. Perfect!"
    If you could sum up Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs in three words, what would they be?

    Satire, witty, humor


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

    No other books in the vampire/romance genre compare. This book is in a leauge of its own. No matter if you loved or hated other series like twilight, you will appreciate the way that this book is able to poke fun at the entire gere in a light and amusing way.


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

    love her voice. perfectly accented. She pulls off the sarcasm and wit without being whiney


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    i think the title is enough of a tag line

    "It's a sit-com that's what it is."

    I am not at all sure that I would want to listen to another book from the Jane Jameson books.It is kind of entertaining and I do not think it is bad. I just feel like I am listening to a sit com about a newly made vampire, her sire, her best friend ext. the thing is I find myself waiting for a laugh track. there are some funny moments but there are lots of times I feel the author is trying too hard and is missing the mark. I seriously could see this as a TV series and some people would like it a lot. I am very picky about sit- coms I would compare "Nice Girls Don't have fangs" to "New Girl" as a vampire

    "Sure why not?"
    What did you love best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    The narration was very good, and I give Ms. Ronconi props for being able to get the range of voices out there.


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

    Fantasy Romance books


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope sorry


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

    The ending, which I will not spoil, but the main character and her father share a moment.

    "Great Listen"

    A light, quick moving tale of vamps and werewolves, overlaid with snarky southern wit and charm. The performance was excellent, lending the proper southern twang without making me want to strangle her. Unless she was doing a character that needed to be strangled, of course!

    "cute"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It was cute, but predictable. I understand it's the first in a series, so it leaves you hanging.


    What was most disappointing about Molly Harper’s story?

    It was a bit childish, except for the sex.


    Any additional comments?

    the author has an original perspective on a vampires life.

    What made the experience of listening to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs the most enjoyable?

    Nice twist on the world of vampires. No better place than a southern state to have the protagonist deliver the frank description of

    "A Fun Start to a Fun Series!"

    I enjoyed listening to "Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs" so much that I went on to purchase the rest of the audiobooks in this series. I love the charaters, and Jane is just great fun.

    "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?



    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.
    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.
    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.
    I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series!

    "funny and lighthearted "

    This book made me laugh out loud on several occasions. Molly Harper has a great sense of humour and I listened to all 4 books in succession, I rated every one a 5 star with the exception of the final book which became a bit predictable. A good escape from serious reading.
    will have a break but probably get some other Molly Harprer/ Amanda Ronconi combo's in future

    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.
