Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs (Jane Jameson, #1)Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jane's day starts with her getting fired from a job she loves by an incompetent who wants her more incompetent relation to have Jane's job. She goes to "drowned her sorrows" where she meets an irresistibly handsome man who won't go home with her in her drunken condition...she who has not had sex in years! She starts driving herself home only to have her car die. Only to have someone she knows shot her...because he thinks she's a DEER! Really! A DEER?!

But wait...this book has just started. You guessed it. She wakes up to find that Mr. Irresistible is a vampire and has made her one!

What a great way to start a book! If I hadn't been drawn to the need for a light weight book that potentially had lots of laughs by the title, this beginning clenched it! From here I learned more about her "maker", his old but not now vampire friend, a strange "Welcome" lady (she welcomes newly made vampires to the group), her grabby sister, her ghosty aunt, her best friend (male who joins a support group for friends of the "newly turned"), etc.

How does a girl tell her parents of her new status? How does she find a job? How does she learn to deal with her undead status? And who the hell is trying to frame her for murder(s?)?

I know but I'm not going to tell. You have to listen to book to find out for yourself! It's a perfect book for an in-between from those more intense books; for those who just love reading fun books; for those who love a good mystery. It's so much fun you'll have to read the next installment!

I do hope Amanda Ronconi narrates the rest; she did such a good job with this one!
