Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of all things marital, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend Gabriel are coming along smoothly. But the road to wedded bliss gets bumpy when a teenage acquaintance is fatally wounded in front of Jane’s shop and she turns him to save his life. The Council pronounces Jane responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.
Jane’s kitchen at River Oaks 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 a war on the fanged residents of River Oaks. Suddenly,
choosing monogrammed cocktail napkins and a cake that she can’t eat seems downright relaxing in comparison.
Tensions inside the house are growing…and outside, a sinister force is aiming a stake straight for the center of Gabriel’s heart. Most brides just have to worry about choosing the right dress, but Jane fears that at this rate, she’ll never make it down the aisle for the wedding all nice girls dream of…

First Thought when Finished: Jane + Being a Mom (Sire) = Priceless in Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper!
What I Loved: This is one of my favorite series on the planet. Molly Harper is just fantastic at combining humor, heart, and a little heart-beating action in her stories. In this particular entry into the series, she managed to make Jane grow up a bit without losing her sense of humor. The whole storyline of Jane becoming a Mom (sire) to a teenage vamp was just brilliance. She truly hit it out of the park with Jane trying not to sound like a mom and failing miserably. The best part, for me, was the ever-so-polite (and I mean it)redneck bad guy. I was rooting for everything to work out and Molly made it happen. I was just grinning ear to ear when the book ended.
What I Liked: We got to see more of Jane interacting with her family which is always a hoot. I like that they are such a big part of her life even if they don’t see eye to eye. Plus, Jane has a fantastic group of friends that are around. I just really like when an author spends the time to make a character well-rounded with friends and family.
Final Thought: I do hope there will be more books in this series!
Audio specific review: At first I was not a fan of A.R.’s voices but now I can’t imagine anyone else doing this series. She is fantastic at grabbing Jane’s personality and making it shine!
