Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs
Nice Girls - Book #1
Jane Jameson, small town children’s librarian, knows how to have a bad day. She gets fired by her troll boss, her severance pay is a puny gift card to a chain restaurant, she gets drunk at said establishment, car breaks down on the way home, and then she gets mistaken for a deer and shot! Luckily the lovely man she chatted with at the restaurant was a vampire with manners. He had followed her home in his car to make sure that she got there safely. Witnessing her accident he is compelled to make her a vampire. Three days later, Jane wakes up in his house to find her life as she knew it is over. Faced with the complete adjustment of her entire existence, she chooses to not tell her parents until she gets a handle on things. But as she is adapting to her new unlife with the help of her sire, someone seems out to frame her for murdering other vamps. What is going on in this small Southern town and will Jane figure it out before she is executed?
This book was so fabulous!!!!!!!!! I picked this book up merely because of the synopsis and the fact that the restaurant Jane gets plastered in is called Shenanigan’s, which cracks me up. I am so glad that I did because it is the funniest thing I have laid eyes on since Bob the dog appeared in the Stephanie Plum mysteries by Janet Evanovich. I picked this book up and hardly put it down. Thirty-six hours later I closed it with a deep sigh of satisfaction. I was so amused by all the little gems that Jane drops throughout the book. Several times I was rolling on the floor with laughter. The setting of a small town in the south reminds me of Charlaine Harris, which I can relate to as I have lived in two in my life. Jane is such a funny gal, with a family that makes you want to stab them with a fork, except her dad. Her mom is so smothering it is a wonder that Jane is a functioning adult. I wanted to read the teaser in the back for the next book Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men but I didn’t dare. August is too far away but I will be picking it up as soon as it hits the shelves. It will be followed by Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever in December. Molly Harper is an awesome newcomer to paranormal romance and I hope she graces us with her books for many years to come! I dare you to read this book and not like it.

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 twenty-five dollars 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?
