Review: Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper

Book description:


Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

Jane’s kitchen barely holds enough Faux Type O to satiate the cute teen’s appetite and maintain Gabriel’s jealous streak at a slow simmer. As if keeping her hyperactive childe from sucking the blood out of the entire neighborhood isn’t enough to deal with, the persnickety ghost of Jane’s newly deceased grandma Ruthie has declared war on the fanged residents of River Oaks. Suddenly choosing monogrammed cocktail napkins and a cake she can’t even eat seem downright relaxing in comparison.
Jenny's review:
In this installment of the Nice Girls Don’t.. series Jane Jameson’s life just keeps getting more and more interesting. Gabriel has moved in with her and asks her to marry him. This time she says YES!  It is not all fun and games though as her Grandmother Ruthie is determined to get her house back and begins haunting River Oaks.  AND, Jane is forced into making one of the towns young men Jamie a vamp after he is hit by a car, so her becomes her childe and begins to live with Gabriel and Jane.  This does nothing for their relationship and while they escape the house for some alone time Gabriel is shot with an arrow and poisoned.  For once the reason for this excitement is not Jane, but pay back for Gabriel killing the man who shot Jane.  All is fair in love and wedding planning and Jane’s life is not simple at all!  The excitement in this book continues as they try to rid of Grandma Ruthie and make a life as a couple in the same house.  Oh, and Jane finds out an interesting secret about her not so friendly Council official,  Ophelia.
Again Harper was able to create a funny action packed book that made me laugh.  I thought the characters continued to grow on me and the situations they found themselves in were hysterical. My favorite part was when  they are wedding dress shopping and Jane is forced to try on a dress that has been in the store since 1992, yet her mother is convinced she looks great in it!  I cant say enough about how good I thought these books were.  They are quick out by the pool or beach reads that made my day!
