REVIEW: Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper

Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs is the first Jane Jamison novel set in Half Moon Hollow, KY. Jane is a youth services librarian who finds herself unemployed. After wallowing in pity at the local bar, she heads home, suffers a car breakdown and mistaken for a deer is accidently shot and left for dead.  Luckily, a handsome and mysterious vampire happens by, thus turning her and beginning the hilarious and entertaining folly that makes this series so endearing.

“You can take the girl out of the library, but you can’t take the neurotic, compulsively curious librarian out of the girl.” 
I adore Jane and all the supporting characters including Gabriel, Zeb, Mr. Wainwright, Andrea, creepy Ophelia, and of course, Dick Chaney!  Having already read the series, it was fun to return where it all started in order to prepare for our April discussion in Positively Paranormal book club.

Harper is truly gifted when it comes to writing seamless humor which adds unique flare to the plot and character development. I love that Jane doesn't have much of a filter between her brain and her mouth.  She's smart and sassy but also lovably realistic in her flaws despite immortality.

The audiobooks to the series and all of Harpers books are stellar. Narrator Amanda Ronconi breather such life into the performance that listeners will be hooked.  I laughed till I cried (again) and truly believe fellow drivers on the road think I am a lunatic.

Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
