    My Initial Reaction... These books always bring me to tears with

    My Initial Reaction...
    These books always bring me to tears with laughter and Nice Girls Don't Bite their Neighbors was no exception! 




    The Narration...
    I know you've got to be tired of hearing me say it, but for anyone who hasn't heard me yet I'll say it again. Amanda Ronconi is an incredible narrator. I would (and have) pick up a book just because she's narrating it. She brings the wit and snarkiness of her characters to life perfectly and I always the variety of voices for all the different characters. You can't go wrong with Amanda! 




    The Characters...
    I just adore these characters. I connect with Jane so easily - she's a book worm living the dream, running her own bookstore. *sigh* Oh and did I mention that she's finally marrying her sire - Gabriel? It took me a while to fall for Gabriel but his proposal finally brought me over to his side. He's always been a bit removed from the rest of the group in my opinion, but in this book he finally seems to be part of the drama.




    Of course, right in the thick of the drama are Dick Cheney and his wife Andrea. Gah, I love these two! They're like the poster children for opposites attract and every minute with them is hilarious. There are no words for how ridiculous Dick is and Andrea is as witty and smart as Jane, so what's not to love?




    I have to admit to being a bit disappointed with how little we see of Jane's best pre-turn friend, Zeb, his wife Jolene, Jane's Aunt Jetti and Mr. Wainwright. These are four of my favorite characters and, while they were still there, they've definitely started moving on and living their own lives. When it mattered most, though, they were all right there in the middle of things and supporting Jane - who seems to have the worst luck of any vampire, ever.




    And then there's the two newest additions to the gang - Jane's sister, who I not only love but am so glad to see not fighting with Jane anymore, and Jaime - Jane's "son." Throwing in Jaime was a lot of fun for the story - even if a bit predictable. Dealing with a teenage vampire is about as fun as dealing with a teenage boy - full of hilarious embarrassing moments and food/blood shortages. 




    The Story...
    Jane's life is just so complicated, nothing ever is simple for her. It would help if someone wasn't always trying to kill her. This time, she's trying to plan her wedding (with a period theme! Loved it!) and all the while she and Gabriel keep having near death experiences. The first one earned her the hatred of the entire town and a new son, further complicating (and enriching) the story. The level of mystery is pretty much non-existent, since from pretty early on you know what's up. But that's not the point of these books, in my opinion. The point is watching Jane and the gang trip all over themselves as they try to figure out who's out to get them. Let dumb plans, witty banter, and disastrous fall out ensue. For me, the most epically hilarious moment of Nice Girls Don't Bite their neightbors was when they finally found who was behind it all. It was so ridiculous that I couldn't help but laugh, hysterically - despite being on the bus. 




    Concluding Sentiments...
    This was a very satisfying conclusion to the Jane Jameson series. I laughed so hard I cried, and a couple times, I cried for reals (which was totally unexpected for this series). I'll miss this crazy gang, but I'm really happy with where Molly Harper left us.

    Jane Jameson and Gabriel have moved in together, and are planning their wedding. Jane’s recently deceased grandma ghost causes problems for all vampires…and some crazy driver nearly kills a teen she used to babysit. In order to save him, Jane “turns” him. Now, she’s the mommy for a hungry new vampire who misses his disapproving family. Someone’s trying to kill Gabriel; the story is tense and dangerous, but the dialogue is hilarious.


    Although this is the fourth book in the series, it is the first book I’ve read. I’ve gone from loving any kind of vampire story…to getting a little tired of them. The comedy here makes this series stand out! I should have put it down, but when Jane turned Jamie – I had to finish reading. Great situations and lines kept me smiling all through.

    Bite? Kiss Him!!

    Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighobrs
    To say that Jane Jameson had a hard time adjusting to being a vampire is an understatement. Aunt Jettie haunts her home (used to be hers), her older sister hates her (always has), her best friend forever’s mom will NOT give up on Zeb and Jane marrying (he’s in love with a werewolf) and then there’s Gabriel…hunk, 150 yr-old vampire who turned Jane as she lay dying (and that’s a great tale in itself!). His frenemy Dick – they were childhood friends – puts anyone thief you can name to shame and her co-worker Andrea was a blood-surrogate.
    The fourth installment of the Half-Moon Hollow folk is just a great as the first three. The “Nice Girls Don’t…” series by Molly Harper is a must-read for anyone who likes humor, vampires with a bit of lust thrown in and a great story line. Jane and Gabriel are engaged to marry and are trying to keep control of their event. In a great idea that might should have been thought out first, Jane has turned a high-school jock she used to babysit for who was creamed by a truck and is now responsible for him. For a year. He’s young, horny, doesn’t listen, plays loud music, eats in the middle of the day – a typical teenager that she and Gabriel aren’t exactly prepared for. To top things off, Jane’s Grandma Ruthie has passed away and has decided to haunt the home she “should have always had”. Ruthie and Jettie are about as close as God and Gomorrah and things get hot is a “deadly” way quickly. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)
    Since it’s always more fun to laugh longer do yourself a favor and get all four books. Yes you can read only this one and have a good time but – splurge – share with friends and have a great time!
