Overview

Sexy, funny, and dark--this is the story of a nice girl who discovers that murder is the only way out of a dead-end relationship. But one man knows exactly what she's up to because he's exactly like Grace. He's a killer himself.

The cult favorite that was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Novel is back in a special 15th Anniversary Edition.

...First there was Clay--it just sort of happened.
Then there was Pete--he was becoming way too attached.
Ben, well, he totally had it coming.
And then there was Sam...

Grace is nice to a fault. She never picks fights, and doesn't like to criticize or hurt people's feelings. Problem is, the men in her life never seem to take a hint. And she just can't bear to tell them outright when she isn't interested. So she kills them. A clean break--no messy emotions, no heated arguments. But someone is onto her. His name is Sam, and he and Grace, with one very dangerous thing in common, make a killer couple. It's a match made in heaven--as long as they can both survive the relationship...

Editorial Reviews

crankythoughts.com - Mrs. Giggles
I really, really love this one. Nice fulfills my craving for a non-saccharine, noirish, twisted romance, one that I never know I have until I watch Martin Blank in Grosse Pointe Blank telling his sweetheart Debbie, "Debbie, I know we can make this work" - bang! as he fires into a villain at the floor - "I have given it a lot of thought" - bang! - "Will you marry me?" - bang!
Twisted? Sick? Ah, but Nice is so good, funny, and romantic too, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Goodreads - Bettie Sharpe
This book is so fun. What if the standard too-nice chick-lit heroine snapped and started killing people? Find out in NICE by Jen Sacks.
Book--The Magazine for Reading Life - Nan Goldberg
In this fiendishly black comedy, Grace keeps finding herself in the same predicament. And it's really bothering her... A hilarious satire ... particularly in the realm of male-female relations, Nice is reminiscent of the movie Heathers in its droll reversal of moral standards. Read it, and keep an eye on its author--she's dangerously funny.
Janet Evanovich
Fresh, darkly comic, and completely engaging.

    This book... is exceptionally odd and wonderfully demented- In a charming way of course. Every bit of it was enjoyable and thought-provoking. It was so well written with lines so poetic and beautiful that it makes you want to believe that someone would ever have an ounce of the suave writing skills this author does... if that makes any sense? If not, then just understand that it's baffling inspiring.
