Nice girls don't live forever - Molly Harper

Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson’s sexy sire, Gabriel, has always been unpredictable. But the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow — alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

Now the children’s-librarian-turned-vampire is reviving with plenty of Faux Type O, some TLC from her colorful friends and family, and her plans for a Brave New Jane. Step One: Get her newly-renovated occult bookstore off the ground. Step Two: Support her best friend, Zeb, and his werewolf bride as they prepare for the impending birth of their baby . . . or litter. Step Three: Figure out who’s been sending her threatening letters, and how her hostile pen pal is tied to Gabriel. Because for this nice girl, surviving a broken heart is becoming a matter of life and undeath...

My thoughts:
This does prove it. I can still do pnr, but, only funny pnr. I have said it before with the Sand books, and it is true.

It was 4 years since I read the last book (I know!), but I could easily jump in even though it is about the same character. I just started reading, I did not remember a thing, and it did not matter.

Instead I learned that Jane is a vamp (well I did remember that), everyone knows about vamps now (still lots of tension). She has a hunky BF called Gabriel (the one who turned her). She used to be a librarian, now she owns a bookstore. She is sassy, and I like her. She is friends with Zeb who is expecting puppies with his were GF. Her friend Dick is a vamp and together with Angela who works at her bookstore. Oh and she has the bitchiest sister in the world!!!

The drama between her and Gabriel. Sigh. Ok that was not the best part. That man must learn how to communicate. Asshat.

Conclusion:
Then there is a relative (sort of ;) that shows up and annoys her. She joins a group, fun things there. There is a mystery and there is just, nice, fun, sarcastic. I enjoyed it .

  1. Poor Gabriel he has that problem. I think it is because he is from a very different era. However Jane---OMG I love me some Jane :)

  11. I love this series. It always makes me laugh. I'm glad to hear that you are still able to read this one. The Half-Moon Hollow books are a spinoff with a different couple for each book. I think they are just as fun, but have other creatures besides just vampires.

  13. I can always go for funny. Problem with humor is that it's so subjective, but this one sounds like a cute, fun series. I'm chuckling at "expecting puppies".
