Overview

Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men (Jane Jameson Series #2) by Molly Harper


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. It seems unfair that she’s expected to master undead dating while dealing with a groom heading for a nuptial nervous breakdown, his hostile werewolf in-laws, and the ugliest bridesmaid dress in the history of marriage.

Meanwhile, the passing of Jane’s future step-grandpa puts Grandma Ruthie back on the market. Her new fiancé, Wilbur, has his own history of suspiciously dead spouses, and he may or may not have died ten years ago. Half-Moon Hollow’s own Black Widow has finally met her match.

Should Jane warn her grandmother of Wilbur’s marital habits or let things run their course? Will Jane always be an undead bridesmaid, never the undead bride?

Combining Mary Janice Davidson’s sass and the charm of Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse novels, this is an incredibly satisfying read for fans of paranormal romantic comedy.

In most series the second or even the third book will never compare to the first. Not the case when it comes to Jane Jameson. I was as entertained throughout this book as I was with the first one. Love Molly Harper and I cant wait to read the third book.

You know, just when I think there's an outside chance that I could actually write something halfway decent someday, I read a Molly Harper book and realize that I could never come up with half of the things she does. A quarter, even. A Titanic-themed wedding? In which the chips and salsa are each arranged in a dish created to look like half of the sinking ship? With favors decorated with ribbons saying "H.M.S. Titanic" on one side and "Zeb and Jolene, Struck by Love" on the other? No, the bar has been set too darn high. Drat. In the second Jane Jameson book, we see our heroine adjusting to her new life as a vsmpire. The plans for her best friend's wedding to his werewolf fiancee are well underway (see wedding, Titanic-themed above), her night job at the occult bookstore is going well if not paying well, and her undead boyfriend/sire Gabriel is very attentive...when he's actually in town. Which, unfortunately, isn't happening an awful lot. Add to that the fact that Zeb's mama Ginger is having major difficulties dealing with the fact that her son isn't marrying Jane, Gabriel seems to have a secret he's not sharing, Jane's high school crush has reemerged from the mists of time and miraculously remembers her name, and Grandma Ruthie has lost yet another husband--and brings a date to his funeral, and you've got another couple of months in the life (afterlife?) of everyone's favorite ex-librarian turned "lost one". I can't wait to read book three, but I'm going to force myself to do so because book four has neither a title nor a definite release date beyond March 2012...obviously, I need to pace myself.

A delightful, fun read. I ADORE Molly Harper's wit, charm, snarky sense of humor, magical world of Half Moon Hollow.....and the Jane Jamison series. I've read several, some of them out of order quite by accident, and found NICE GIRLS DON'T DATE DEAD MEN to be both amusing and a little frustrating. At times it was evident story developments would play a significant role....but for the time being it didn't make a whole lot of sense...and seemed to drag on by. At other times, the action and fun and chuckles made for a sparkling read. Lots of questions were raised in this installment (#2) in the series that are not yet answered, i.e., what's up with Gabriel?...still, I think it could be a stand-alone read (with the expectation that not everything will get tied up with a fancy bow at the end). Highly recommended to fans of paranormal romance, fans of light romantic comedies, those who adore vampires and shifters and the humor inherently found in family dynamics and situational comedy. Sensuality Level: PG-13 Language: PG

This is Jane Jameson's second adventure as a sarcastic, newly-undead, ex-librarian with more than her fair share of quirky friends and relatives (living, dead, and undead). This one picks up right where the first left off, with Jane's life-long friend, Zeb, planning his wedding to Jolene, who just happens to be a werewolf. Their wedding seems just as doomed as the Titanic (which just happens to be the wedding's theme) with both families fighting it tooth and nail (in Jolene's case, literally!). Zeb's mother, Mama Ginger, can't get over the fact that he's not marrying Jane, and she's willing to do just about anything to make her dream of Jane and Zeb together come true. Meanwhile, Jane's Grandma Ruthie buries another husband (well, in this case, an almost-husband) with her new boyfriend in tow. There's something about that new boyfriend that isn't quite normal, and Jane discovers that Ruthie may well have finally met her match. Jane continues to be insecure about her relationship with sire/boyfriend Gabriel, and his secretive behavior begins to give her reason for concern.  I continue to enjoy this series. I love Jane as a character. I also love that in this novel she starts gaining confidence and standing up for herself against her pushy relatives. I am really interested to see how Jane and Gabriel's relationship unfolds and what new mess Jane will inevitably get herself into.

I've read a lot of vampire books, some dark, some smut filled and it's nice to read and it¿s nice to take a break from some of the darker Urban Fantasy ones to enjoy a light funny read. With vampires are named Dick Cheney (not the ex-vice prez) how can it not make you laugh. In this installment of the series the gang deals with Zeb and Jolene¿s wedding. Let me just say if I had a family that was as nosey as Jane, Zeb and Jolene¿s I would have moved or gone to jail for killing a few of them. It actually got to the point to where it got a little annoying. I kept thing that all three of them needed to grow a part of balls and stand up to their families. Each chapter starts with a saying from the book ¿Mating Rituals and Love Customs of the Were¿. This helps set the mood for the wedding horrors for that following chapter. Zeb starts acting weird halfway through the book but I quickly figure out what¿s going on and wait to see how long it takes our main characters to get on board with the answer to WTH is wrong with him. Another character starts acting a bit like a stalker towards Jane is her high school crush, Adam. First he comes off sweet and seems to have taken a real liking to Jane the adult when he didn¿t give Jane the teenager a second thought. Just when you think there might be a love triangle starting it ends when Jane uses her very spotty mind reading trick. Jane and Gabriel¿s relationship is far from perfect and things start to get even rockier towards the end of the book which leaves a lot of unanswered questions for Jane. But I¿ve already started the 3rd book and it seems that the relationship problems that start in Nice Girls Don¿t Date Dead Men are the setup for the main plot for Nice Girls Don¿t Live Forever. So in a nut shell NGDDD is about horrors of everything that surrounds planning a wedding and having to wear the ugliest braids maid dress and the ups and downs of relationships; plus controlling yourself enough to keep from killing your family.

Jane really does not have much luck except when it comes to her friends. Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts, Witches - you name it Jane will probably encounter it. Molly Harper writes an engaging book, a little mystery, a little laughter, a little romance. I enjoyed this second in the series and am looking forward to number three.

Love Jane's adventures, her fights with her crazy family, her and lucious Gabriel (sigh). I just can't believe that I laugh OUT LOUD when reading these books. On to #3.

Lots of potential but falls a little flat. Characters are not fleshed out as much as could be desired. Drama is campy. But, a fun light read nonetheless. I would recommend.
