Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if n...more

Audio Book Review

Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men, the second book in Molly Harper's Jane Jameson series, is another fun, witty, quirky romp through Half Moon Hollow.

The Story:

With Zeb and Jolene's wedding day quickly approaching and more and more obstacles being thrown in their path to wedded bliss, Jane seems to have become their couples counselor - much to her chagrin. But with Gabe and Jane's relationship feeling no small amount of strain, can Jane help her best friend make it to the altar wh...more
The Holy Terror
I have to give this one 2.75 stars because it just wasn't as good as the first book. There were some sexy and funny parts and even some that made me tear up, but the whole wedding business and the family dynamics kind of turned me off. Mama Ginger and Jane's whole family (except her Dad) could never again appear on the pages and I'd be happy. The scenes with them were frustrating and I wanted to slap a few of them on a number of occasions. Plus, the fact that the one storyline I actually wanted...more

4 Stars! Another fun ride with the sassy, snarky Jane Jameson and the quirky residents of Half Moon Hollow!

This one focuses on Zeb, Jane's best friend and his fiancee, Jolene, who just happens to be a werewolf! Loads of zany antics leading up to their wedding and Jane is in the midst of it all. I love Molly Harper's dry sense of humor, her crazy stories, and the amazing Amanda Ronconi brings it all to life! Definitely worth reading, but if you have the opportunity to listen to it, even better!...more

There is some action, some mystery, some romance and a lot of smart humor...nothing too over-the-top well, except for the humor which is laugh out loud at times. I laughed a lot, and even cried a little

OMG this book bored me to tears!!!
The first book was just OK, at least it had a mystery involved and some sort of character development. The first 200 pages of this book could have been omitted completely as this book dragged and dragged!! I skipped about 14 chapters just to skim the last chapter to get closure.

It seemed that 99% of this book is a clear reflection of the authors personal taste in music, books, and remants of her own failures in highschool. The main character's entire family ju...more

Book two from the Jane Jameson trilogy. Another hoot! Jane never ceases to amaze me with the smart*** comments she makes. It is always a sign of a good book when it can get me to laugh out loud.

This was another light fun read something I need more often then not to help with a long day/week/year.

Jane has been selected as the Maid of Honour at her best friend Zeb's wedding. A werewolf wedding no doubt and she seems to be caught up in the middle of all the politics that come with one wolfy weddi...more
Just as funny as the first book, now I know that it wasn't just a fluke. In this book, Jane is in the bridal party for her best friend Zeb's Titanic themed wedding to Joelene a werewolf. She also has a new job at an occult bookstore and is trying to figure out what to do about her lack of money. There are the occasional fights with Gabriel and the makeup sessions that pass after that, and her interactions with her family as well. When Jane is with her family I find it so hilarious and also very...more
I liked this book better than the first one. But by the end I was sooooo tired of hearing about the wedding and all the ways it was going to be trashy!!

Jane seems to be adjusting to her new life well. There are issues with Gabriel, like where the heck he has been going. I am hoping that we learn about that next book.

The whole wedding thing had the feeling of the Hatfields and McCoys. Although it was funny to see all the ways both sides could scorn the other. What happened to Zeb was fairly predi...more
What can I say about this book? The women are still the villains. Jane is still snippy. This book was a good addition to the series. I was reading it late the night before last and realized that it is set up similarly to sitcom in how the dialogue is written.... it was a creepy realization. But I transcended (I do not like most sitcoms) and read on.

In this story, Jane is less "new vampire" and more "recent vampire" which means that she is less surprised about the changes in herself, and a little...more
Everybody remember my love of the first book? No? I linked my review up top so feel free to go read the fangirl'ingthe review and come back. I'll wait.

Okay so now you must know how much I love Jane. She only gets better. On the back of the book the tagling 'Forever a Bridesmaid, Never an Undead Bride' kind of sums up the funny of this book. Jane is Maid of Honor to Jolene (Zeb's wack-a-doodle werewolf girlfriend he met in the previous book while trying to come to terms with Jane's undead status)...more
"How were you turned?
"Its's not a story I tell most people," I said...
"Why not?"
"If there was a very special episode of 'I Love Lucy', where Lucy was turned into a vampire, she'd probably use my story. Let's just say I didn't have any choice. It was either death or this."

The events that led to Jane being turned would never be included among her more finer moments but rather would probably be listed at the top of her most embarrassing moments. It's not the type of tale you fondly recall and tell...more

I loved the first book in this series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs. I've been waiting since I finished that book for Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men to come out. It was worth the wait - I loved it! I am totally a Molly Harper fangirl!

In NGDHF, we meet Jane Jameson (yes, there are a few funny porn references), a librarian who is turned into a vampire. Funny, snarky, interesting plot and love the secondary characters. Talk about a dysfunctional family!

In Molly Harper's second Jane Jameson book, we are delighted with details about how Jane is further adjusting to working her new job, living her new life, planning her best friend's wedding & all the drama that comes with it ( like Zeb's mom convinced that Jane is the perfect daughter-in-law), & of course dealing with the ever sexy sire/boyfriend Gabriel Nightengale.

I liked this one even better than Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs! It made me laugh out loud, I absolutely loved the...more

This is a fun series. It actually made me laugh out loud, and I looked pretty idiotic to the casual observer.

For example:

"Oh, come on, who hides a stake in their cane? What's next? Are you going to make nunchakus out of your dentures?"

But the cane could be bad-ass weapons on their own.

Case in point: this awesome guy:

I know I'd be afraid of him.

But I digress...

This is the continuation of Jane Jameson's story about being a newly turned vampire, adjusting to living...more
Clever dialogue and a lively sense of humor make this book seriously good fun. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts and a geriatric ghoul all find a home in Half Moon Hollow, and they aren't even the scariest residents in town.

After reading several of the reviews for "Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men" I was a little worried. Most of the reviewers indicated that they did not like this second book as well as the first. It was just the opposite for me, I liked this book better than book one.

After a somewhat turmultous beginning as a vampire, Jane is beginning to make adjustments to all of the changes in her life. Her best friend, Zeb is engaged to a werewolf. Her sister, Jenny is suing her for the inheritance her Aunt Jet...more

Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men is the second book in Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson series. While book one was all about Jane and how she became a vampire (and all the hilarious events that follow), book two is about Jane’s falling into her new life and her relationship with her family, with her friends (old and new) and of course with Gabriel, her yummy sire.

There are really three main parts of this story. Well, three that I focus on anyway. First of all J...more

Last time we saw Jane Jameson, she had been shot by a drunk, turned into a vampire, and almost killed by a psychotic pink-wearing real estate agent. She began dating her sexy sire, Gabriel, and met some new friends to help her adjust to her new lifestyle. Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men picks up soon after the first book left off and quickly throws the reader back into Jane's...more

So far I really like this series. Sometimes I don't know what crazy things are going to come out of the characters' mouths, but usually it's pretty funny. This book find us getting ready for Zeb's impending nuptuals to Jolene and all the craziness that ensues.

One of the things about this series that makes me crazy is Jane's family. They just seem to feel that they have every right to anything jane has and Jane doesn't deserve anything, such as her house. mean they are so over the top rude and s...more

Oh my goodness any book that makes me laugh out loud as much as this one did deserves 5 stars. I am really starting to love this little community and Jane is hilarious with her dry wit. I am seriously hating her family thou, not so much her mom and dad, but her sister and grandmother deserve a swift kick in the ass. I so wanted Jane to slap these two upside the head so many times, I loved the fight at the end where....well I won't spoil it for you, but its good. I am also loving the character D...more

Jane's back, and just as hilarious as ever. :] I loved the first book, and was looking forward to the next one. Thankfully, I wasn't disappointed - I loved it.

When I first picked up Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs, I was expecting it to be pretty much the same as most of the ever present vamp books out atm. I suppose in some aspects it is, but this book has something most don't - it's FUNNY. And I'm not talking about snorts of amusement here, though there are many - I'm talking real laughs. Honestly...more

Another fun read from Molly Harper! Jane's escapades are silly with a frantic feel...whats not to like.


Following Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs, the second in a hilarious, smart, sexy romantic series about an out-of-work librarian who is turned into a vampire.

With her best friend Zeb’s Titanic-themed wedding looming ahead, new vampire Jane Jameson struggles to develop her budding relationship with her enigmatic sire, Gabriel....more
I really like this series. I've seen a lot of people compare it to the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries (which is not a bad thing, given their success) since they are both set in the south and involve vampires. But whereas Sookie is more of a Paranormal/Mystery/Romance, the Jane Jameson series is a Paranormal/HUMOR/Romance series. I've read a lot of vampire books and it's nice to read one that doesn't take itself too seriously. Vampires are named "Dick Cheney" (he had it first) not L...more
I was in the mood for a bit of light reading, and Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson series is about as fluffy as it gets, basically the literary equivalent to an almond meringue – absolutely no nutritional substance at all, but irresistibly delicious. (The novels do get one better over the pastries though, in that they are also very funny.)[return][return]There is a theory that humour is a product of the clash of the ideal with the real, and Molly Harper’s is a very nice illustration of that, as a sig...more

“I love it when you talk about books,” he murmured against my neck. “It gets you all excited. Quick, tell me your theories about Jane Eyre and sexual repression again.” ~Gabriel to Jane

Jane’s adventures continue as she tries to settle into her undead life. Her family still causes her all kinds of grief and angst and they either refuse to acknowledge her vampire status, or they throw it in her face, whatever reaction suites their needs best. Jane’s relatio...more
In Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men Jane tries to help Zeb and Jolene prepare for their Titanic-themed wedding while surviving their families. Zeb's mom, Mama Ginger, is unable to accept that her boy, Zeb, could love anyone other than Jane. And Jolene's were-family insists on playing pranks on Zeb, which all cause some sort of major injury, since he's only human.

Meanwhile, seems like her Grandma Ruthie (a 4xwidow) has lost another husband, so she's forced to deal with her family at the funeral. J...more

The gang's all here.

Such fun. This really is one of those feel-good series—funny, sexy (surprisingly sexy actually!) and heart-warming. Then every now and again, a little bit of heartache is thrown at you that you don't quite know how to deal with while in such a blissed-out state. So, if you struggle with it, imagine how poor Jane feels!

Her love life is... complicated. I didn't instantly fall in love with Gabriel, the love interest, in book one like I d...more
Mrs. Missive be fair, I may just not be in the mood for this. I love campy humor and relevant (to me) snarky remarks. I love vampires, and I love the idea of mixing human society with the vampire world.

However, I couldn't help comparing this book to the Queen Betsy series. Not in story line, because, yeah I know our heroine here isn't a queen. But in the tone. Our heroine here Jane is our focus as the reader. She sees ghosts, she has a strangely distant boyfriend, who really does love her, but we...more

My mother remembers an 8-year-old me setting up my “writing office” in our living room by putting her old manual typewriter on the couch next to a toy phone. And I (very slowly) pecked out the story of my third-grade class taking a trip around the world and losing a kid in each city.

I had a dark sense of humor, even then.

“Fortunately, among werewolf women, the word "bitch" is not offensive. I was having a lot of fun with that.
"Hey there, bitches!" I called as I came through the door. "What are my favorite bitches up to today?”
“I have ways of making extra money when I need it", he said, slightly offended. "When Gilbert needed money for graduate school, I sold a kidney on the black market for tuition."

We can grow those back?" I asked.

It wasn't my kidney.”
