Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed twenty-five dollars in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood.

Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She's forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What's a nice undead girl to do?

Original Review May 1, 2011

NOTE: The Jane Jameson series became my choice for a series read after finishing the Werewolf Series by Molly Harper. I really like Molly Harper’s wit and storytelling abilities. This series is shaping up to be just as fun!

What I Loved: Molly Harper has done it again (or before but we are talking my reading order) with Jane Jameson. Jane is funny, smart, witty, sarcastic, and just downright brilliant no matter what situation she is thrown into. In this story, Jane is changed into a vampire after accidentally being mistaken as a deer by a drunk hunter. Her sire, the ever so hot, Gabriel just makes her transition into vampire all that more interesting as they try and navigate the murky waters that are dating. If you throw in someone trying to scare her, debating on how/if to tell her parents, living with her dead aunt (who she can now see), and dealing with losing her job, you can see how Jane has a lot on her plate to deal with. The story is just downright fun!

What I Liked: Can I just say that the teenage council member that is a bajillion years old is one of my favorite characters? She manages to look bored, play mean, and be fair all at one time. The way that Molly writes characters makes each one of them stand out even if they are only in the book sporadically. My other favorite character is Dick Cheney—no, not that Dick Cheney—as he said, “I was Dick Cheney before he was and I will be Dick Cheney after he is gone.”

Complaints: At times there was a little to much going on but luckily it was pretty easy to keep it all straight.

Audio Review: Narrated by Amanda Ronconi who again does an excellent job with the women’s voices but the men all sound to feminine. I knew this though and still choose to listen to it on audio because I really like how Amanda pulls off all the one-liners that Molly writes!

Why I gave it a 3.75: This was just a downright fun read that will make you smile. Who doesn’t like a book that makes you smile?

Who I would recommend this too: PNR readers who don’t expect an HEA but an HE-maybe.

    I loved (the first few) of these books on audio. Really good narrator for the characters. Whatever book was the last one I read though left me feeling not as sold on the series … I need to revisit this one and get back into it. Thanks for the reminder πŸ˜‰

      I loved it mostly for the character trejectory of my boyfriend Dick Cheney πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I loved Jane but I did think the whole thing with her romance drug out a little long. However, the side characters (grandma, dick, ect) are what keeps these on my reread pile. It feels like snuggling with the pups–that kind of comfort read πŸ™‚

    • Felicia S

      That’s funny because the Hallows are my new to me series for next year. I have listened to book 1 but it is time to do them all πŸ™‚

    • Felicia S

      The audio really is good! I think when I first listened to this I was still in my “learning to follow a narrator” kind of thing.

    • Felicia S

      I have read all of her books except for the BlueGrass series and that is on my to do list πŸ™‚ I have really liked them all. I like her humor!

    • Felicia S

      It was! I really want to reread them all but alas my pile is too high at the moment. Of course knowing me, that could mean very little cause I have been known to go on “just for me” kicks πŸ™‚
