But the ever loving girl is also trying to support those around her, but things just might look up for Jane as things are not always what they seem.
Jenny's review:
I loved these books. They were very funny and enjoyable to read. The main character, Jane, just seems so normal and suffers from just being an awkward woman, you really just want things to go right for her and then the next thing you know things are back into strangeness and chaos for her. I mean come on, she looses her job in the first book on literally the first few pages, is shot and almost killed, but is turned into a vampire! Molly Harper is a fantastic author who uses humor so well it makes these books fantastic!!  These books are just a great simple enjoyable “beach” read, that will keep you laughing! Like reading a bad soap opera that you just can’s stop! Loved them!
