Audiobook Review: Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs

Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs 
(Jane Jameson #1)
by Molly Harper 
Amanda Ronconi (Narrator)
RATING: ★★★ 1/2

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?

I've had this series on my TBR list for awhile and after reading How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf by Harper I knew that I had to move this series up my reading list. Then my lovely husband got me a 12 months membership to for my birthday, so Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs was my 1st "purchase".

I love the sarcastic humor that Harper uses in her books. Nice Girls is a fun light hearted read with mystery and romance set in the South were vamps are out to the public. Jane is turned in order to save her life but she does an excellent job of adapting to her new life. Plus it doesn't hurt that her sire is the yummy Gabriel.

Nice Girls reminded me of a mix between Undead Series by Davidson, Broken Heart Series by Bardsley and a touch of Sookie Stackhouse with the mention of fake bottled blood.

Not only did I enjoy the characters and plot line; but I found the narrator fun to listen to. She did the southern accent justice. And with me being from Arkansas, I've heard some really bad fake southern accents before. She didn't sound like Forrest Gump while reading the book. She added the extra twang when needed without over doing it.

I'm looking forward to downloading the rest of the series. Look for my reviews of more Molly Harper books in the near future.

  1. Wow! that's a great gift, I hope you can develop a love for audiobooks the way I have, Oh my God! there's so many audiobooks I could recommend I don't know where to start, it's all about the narrator, they can make them or break them.
    BDB is fantastic on audio :) and the Fever series is awesome!
    This was a great review of an audiobook, I loved that you share your opinion of the narrator.

  2. I should SO try this. I loved Naked Werewolf.

  3. I am so excited to see the authors that you compare this too because I already loved Bardsley and Davidson so much. I have this series in my TBR pile and I am hoping to bump this up closer to the top. Perhaps I will dedicate September to reading the four in this series. :) Great review!

  4. The series is a little on the fluffy side, but it's still a really funny and great read. I've only read books 1-3 so far, and they were all keepers.
