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.

I will listen to the series

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

I enjoyed this book and it's narration. It is more of a performance than 'a reading', I felt like I got to know the character through the voice. I hope Amanda Ronconi, reads the next books in the series.

A really fun series

I use reviews by others quite often to help me to decide to read a book and if there are others out there that do the same, Im writing this review so that I can tell how much fun I had reading this series. It quirky, funny, and I felt I wanted to know how all the characters came out. I enjoyed them all.

I am a Molly Harper fan and very happy to read any of her work.

Amanda Ronconi compliments this series very well and I also follow her work in Rachel Vincent's, My Soul series too. She is a pleasure to listen to with great delivery and inflection.

Great Series and Great Narrator!

Loved this book, the first in a series of vampire books. Molly Harper has become a favorite author of mine with her humorous style of writing and engaging characters.
Jane Jameson, a young librarian in a small town, is turned into a vampire following a freak shooting accident. Vampire Gabriel Nightingale finds her and turns her to save her life. The story follows Jane as she learns to deal with her new "life" and the quirky bunch of new friends she makes as a vampire.
Amanda Ronconi is perfect as the narrator. She has just the right voice for the characters and really enhanced my enjoyment of the book. I'm listening to the 3rd book in the series now and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. Highly recommend if you like campy paranormal stories. I also recommend Molly Harper's two "Naked Werewolf" books.

Funny and well written

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

This book was refreshingly upbeat and funny. I enjoyed it so much. It's on my top 5 book list.

What did you like best about this story?

So many fantasy books are all about tough, supernatural, fem fatale characters. The lead character in this book finds her new life bewildering. As she struggles to grow into her new life the reader gets to go along for the ride. It's a fun ride!

What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

I think she really captured Jane's voice. She got the humor and sarcasm just right.

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

This is a laugh out loud funny book. I was in a super market listening to this book and I was laughing so much I has to shut it off.

Any additional comments?

This is a great book if you are feeling blue or just need a lift. I listened to it again a few weeks after the first time and found things I missed.

Fun and Fresh!

Enter a new "vampire" romance book. Molly Harper's characters are sassy and magnets for trouble, so Jane Jameson is all you would expect. Amanda Ronconi's narration captures the "smart a--" tone of the characters perfectly, so that you can almost visualize them, no matter how impossible the actual situations might be. This book is fun!!

Sookie and Twilight with humor

After reading and laughing through much of How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf and The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf I had to try the Jane Jameson books. Audible was having a sale and Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs was $5.00 .. so what the heck I grabbed a copy.

This 1st book of the series deals with Jane Jameson, a fired librarian that after being out on a drinking binge has an accident and shot like a deer. Lucky for her she was being followed by a handsome man (vampire) from the bar that turns Jane. The book deals with her transition period, find a job, living with the ghost of her grandmother and having a very handsome mysterious sire is Gabriel.

I was a little disappointed there were traces of Twilight and the Sookie Stackhouse books but unlike either this was funny and Molly Harper has such quick wit. I really would give the book more of a 3 ?? stars mostly because it was entertaining, humorous and easy to listen to while driving in the car.

Amanda Ronconi does a great job narrating!

Nice Girls Don't,,,

I have been horribly disappointed with this genre overall, and so I avoided this series for months, but I was looking to burn some credits, so I got Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs. It kept me entertained and amused, and I have since purchased the rest in the series and several more by this author/reader combination. They make a good team. The books are funny, and the reader manages to convey that well (some just can't).
