    Jane and Gabriel are finally getting married, yay! But of course given that this is Jane, there would be complications. Jamie, a high school delivery boy, is coming by the bookshop, when he’s struck by a car and about to die, so Jane changes him to one of the undead. Unfortunately, Jamie develops a huge and inappropriate crush on Jane, which is compounded by the fact that as his sire, she has to keep him at her house. Drama!

I burst out cackling at the sight of my sister in her "biohazard suit" bridesmaid's dress. The neckline was off the shoulder with a wide ruffle of egg-yolk yellow that gathered at the cleavage with a fabric rose, which accented the bodice's descent into what can only be described as a waist lapel. I love how evil Jane can be sometimes. She is a girl after my own heart. This book was the perfect end to the story. I laughed, didn't cry, and was profoundly affected for at least 5 minutes after finishing it. Perfect.

I don’t know how she came to narrate Molly Harper’s books, but I hope these two continue to team up, because they were made for each other.

The books are witty, easy reads, and Amanda Ronconi does a fantastic job narrating them. But whether you read or listen, you’re sure to be thoroughly entertained. I highly recommend these books for fans of light urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

    A cute, satisfying ending to the series. The stories never held deep wells of storyline, it was more of a 'hey, this happened, so let's show life afterwards' kind of thing. 'Nice Girls don't bite their neighbors' has some changes in the main character's life with things getting wrapped up, but besides the intro of a newbie, that's basically it.

'Nice Girls don't bite their neighbors' has some changes in the main character's life with things getting wrapped up, but besides the intro of a newbie, that's basically it. This is the second book that's focused on a wedding - instead of her best bud and his werewolf love, it's Jane and Gabriel themselves. Enter mother woes, dress shopping, best friend girlish get-togethers, and a few dangers in between. Enjoyable to read about Jane and the crew, but no strong tension. I'm still not gung-ho on the idea of her siring someone so soon, but it worked out better than I thought. The teenage boy is hilarious with his awkward moments, interrupting Jane's time with Gabriel, and spinning out a quirky ending of his own. (I'm not spoiling anything by saying this since this is on the back of the book cover as the plot-line.) There's not much to wrap up since Gabriel and Jane were already together by book one, wedding or no. That doesn't steam me either way. To end the series with a few sparks, there is a death of a character that no one liked anyway, and a sad moment when others say goodbye. Teariest scene of the series for sure. Even if the story isn't fascinating, it's a light read and these books are enjoyable. Laughs are earned, a few watery eyes here and there, and mild distractions from the mandane for those of us who aren't lucky enough to live paranormal lives.

If those two problems weren't bad enough it turns out someone is targeting Jane to get back at Gabriel...oh and did I mention the evil Aunt Ruthie decides to get some revenge on Jane?! “Are you saying I’m insensitive?” Peter deadpanned. “I was going to use the words ‘devoid of the milk of human kindness,’ but ‘insensitive’ will do.” What I love about Molly Harper's book is the humor she writes into every problem. We do get serious moments but there is never a depressed feel about any of it. I really enjoy reading this series because sometimes I just need a fun and happy book. I was really happy with how everything ended as well. I get why authors write cliff-hangers in but they can be REALLY annoying. Needless to say this book does not have a cliff-hanger. I'm interested to see where the next book goes, with Jane...anything can happen. Welcome to the world of vampire parenting. If you're frightened, confused, and disoriented...that sounds just about right. - Siring for the Stupid: A beginner's Guide to Raising Newborn Vampires

So long, Jane Jameson, it was good knowing you. Jane finally makes it to the altar, just as her mama has always wanted, but of course she does it her own way & like everything in Jane’s life, it’s complicated. By this fourth book, the cute is wearing off a bit and I think it was a wise decision by the author to move on and write about other characters in Half Moon Hollow. It did seem a little pat that Jane would be burdened suddenly with a teenage “childe” just before her wedding. The complete and happy family picture makes for a stereotypical happily ever after. I must confess that I was happier when Jane was building her own inner circle of people that she was actually fond of, rather than relying on her cranky family members. I liked the non-traditional assemble-your-own-family approach of the earlier books. I still like Dick Cheney (the vampire, not the vice president) better than Jane’s finally-not-reluctant husband, Gabriel, but that’s just me. Her gal-pal Andrea got the better choice in the marriage sweepstakes, in my opinion. I’m taking a little break, but will move on to the Half Moon Hollow series this summer.

This time around Jane is dealing with her own wedding planning issues, more dead relatives, and being a new mother so to speak. Seems that someone always wants to kill or at least maim Jane. And she usually makes things worse by running off by herself to solve the mystery of who it is. But this time Jane is showing her maturity by letting her friends do the heavy lifting in the department of who wants Jane dead. Jane gets to see how life is as a sire when she helps out a follow Half Moon Hollow citizen. And it’s funny as hell to see her and the gang deal with the new member to the family. So if you are a fan of the series you will want to pick this one up if you have not already. And if you have not started the series I recommended to anyone that likes a fun paranormal light read with laughs on just about every page.

    Perfect ending to a fun series.... Love Jane, and her sarcasm was definitely at its highest when it came to planning her wedding to Gabriel.... The characters in these books are just so fantastic and I absolutely loved what the Author did with Jane's evil Grandma....

    I can't think of all that much to say about this book that I haven't said about the previous books in the series. These books are light, fluffy and funny. Molly Harper is a master wordsmith, the way her books are written, the way her sentences are strung together feels right from start to finish. Her books only occasionally delve into anything deep. She still puts her opinions forward in her books but it is done so softly that you absorb them without even realizing it.

    4.75 This was awesome! I lol'ed quite a few times while listening to it. Lots of great Dick Chaney moments too! From my understanding this was the last one and that makes me sad. Jane is always a good pick me up when you want a quick, funny, and entertaining read. I'm not sure where the story arc could go from this point anyways though. Jane seemed to come to terms with a lot of things in this book. I'm happy with the way everything went down. Jane deserves a HEA. 4.75 This was awesome!

    This is a great series and I never get tired of Jane's misadventures, she gets herself into some very funny situations. I enjoyed the new additional characters and was sad to see some go. Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi are a perfect match. Looking forward to the next in the series.

This series makes me laugh and laugh and Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors is a very cute installment. Jane has settled down in her somewhat new life as a vampire. She runs her bookstore at night now, hangs out with her vampire best friends Dick and Jane and her werewolf best friends Zeb and Jolene. She also just got engaged to her lover, Gabriel. Life is good for Jane until Jamie; the seventeen year old dairy delivery guy gets run over in front of her bookstore. Jane has known Jamie most of her life and realizes his injuries are so severe, he is either going to die or she must turn him. And that is how Jane comes to have her first vampire childe. Since Jane is his sire, she is now responsible for him, which means she now has a hormonal teenaged vampire boy residing with her. To make matters worse, other things start to happen to Jane and Gabriel making her wonder if the car was really intended for her. Jane’s grandmother also died and has come back to viciously haunt Jane in her home. This series is so lighthearted with the best cast of characters. They are all so warm and funny and they turn all situations into the best sarcastic humor. Jane’s lover Gabriel is not your typical alpha male. Although a very old vampire, it usually seems like Jane is the one taking the alpha role in the relationship. I like this scenario – their relationship is different from what you normally see in paranormal romance books. While this book has more emphasis on Jane’s life and the funny moments rather than the romance, we do get a lot of Gabriel and Jane page time. It is nice to finally see them happy and together. “Why are you limping?” I demanded. “The arrow didn’t hit you in the leg.” He stopped, his shift in weight pulling me to a halt, too. “I don’t know. It just seems like the thing to do after you’ve received an arrow wound.” I sighed as he straightened his gait and walked normally. “You are so the guy for me.” And now that Jane is engaged, she must plan her wedding with her mother, who has been waiting a very, very long time for this moment. Her mother might be a bit controlling, and that is putting it lightly, and to watch her and Jane butt heads over the wedding plans is very amusing. As they go wedding dress shopping: “Oh, honey,” Mama murmured, her eyes misting. “It’s so beautiful!” I turned toward the mirror and flinched. “I look like a bad meringue hallucination,” I said. The skirt seemed to explode from beneath the bodice, making my hips look a mile wide. The hem was hovering about an inch off the ground and revealed my white gym socks. The sleeves were those padded “belle” sleeves, but they’d long since deflated and hung from my biceps like droopy balloons. Iris had stopped in her tracks across the shop and dropped the tiara she’d been holding. “You look like Cinderella,” Mama cooed. Behind her, Iris Jolene, and Andrea were shaking their head in sync. “If she were doing the walk of shame home from the ball,” Andrea muttered. Jolene and Jenny snickered. I bit my lip to keep from joining in. What? Even I can appreciate a good snark at my own expense. “You couldn’t have worn nicer socks?” Mama asked. And of course there is drama over the catering: “Why is all the food miniature?” Jolene whispered, clearly horrified. Werewolf metabolism ran ridiculously high to help fuel their change. They had to scarf down calories all day just to sleep at night, like a little hibernation. Thanksgiving in a werewolf clan was like a full-on farm livestock massacre. And major celebrations like wedding were the sort of horrifying take that barnyard animals might whisper to their children to keep them in line. There are also so many amusing moments with Jane’s new vampire childe. He throws tantrums, is very horny and just acts like a typical seventeen year old. He was a really great character to add to this cast. I recommend you start at the beginning of this series so you can witness the relationships building. Each book is very snarky and cute and Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors is a great addition. Rating: B

    Genre* Paranormal Romance (Adult) Rating* 4.0 *Review* For 31 year old vampire Jane Jameson, things haven't exactly been easy since she was accidentally shot by a drunk hunter and then turned into a vampire by Gabriel. She's had all sorts people, including Gabriel's ex's, take shots at her in an attempt to kill her permanently. This time around, Jamie Lanier, the boy Jane used to babysit for when he was a child, is hit by a mysterious car and requests that Jane turn him into a vampire. With Ophelia Genre* Paranormal Romance (Adult) Rating* 4.0 *Review* For 31 year old vampire Jane Jameson, things haven't exactly been easy since she was accidentally shot by a drunk hunter and then turned into a vampire by Gabriel. She's had all sorts people, including Gabriel's ex's, take shots at her in an attempt to kill her permanently. This time around, Jamie Lanier, the boy Jane used to babysit for when he was a child, is hit by a mysterious car and requests that Jane turn him into a vampire. With Ophelia and the council's approval, she does just that. Jane is seriously funny as a new sire to a new youngling. She even has a wickedly funny book called "Siring for the Stupid; A Beginner's Guide to Raising Newborn Vampires." It's actually fun reading about Jane becoming a new mommy to a vampire childe who just happens to be a teenager. Naturally, Jane and Ophelia (The Head of the Council for the Equal Treatment of the Undead), are once again clamoring at each other. Ophelia really doesn't understand how Jane has lived as long as she has with her silliness and ability to find trouble around every corner. We actually get more of Ophelia this time around, which surprised me. We get to learn how she was turned, and how old she truly is. We also get to meet her sister Georgie who actually likes Jane's snarky personality. “Does someone need a nap?” I asked, patting her head. “Does someone need to be defenestrated?” she retorted, whirling on me. "I don't know what sort of low-rent vampires you're used to dealing with, but I know exactly what 'defenestrated' means. And if you think you're strong enough to push me out a window, bring it on, Pocket Vamp." As for Jane's personal life, her business "Specialty Books" is doing fine now that she has Andrea to work alongside her. She and Gabriel have moved in together at her River Oaks home. Jane FINALLY agrees to marry Gabriel and the wedding that follows is nothing short of expected with yet another person trying to interrupt the couple's happiness by killing Gabriel. I wished there was more of the bachelorate party with Jane, Jolene, Jenny and Andrea. I think it would have made the book even better. If you enjoy snarky characters as well as an emotional roller coaster ride of laughs and tears, this series should be one that you read. Funniest Line(s): Believe me there are a lot. I just skimmed through the best ones. “Why is my face sore?” I asked, stretching out my jaw and wincing at the pain. “Well, I had you in the bag, and I was in a hurry to get you out of the house before your family noticed. And my shoulder slipped while I was carrying you down the stairs, and…” “You dropped me down the stairs?” I cried. “Well, you’re heavier than you look!” he exclaimed. “How is that supposed to make me feel better?” I grumbled. “How did people not notice that?” “I told them you were soiled linens,” he said. "Nobody likes a girl with streaks of blood down her face," Jenny said, gently patting Andrea's arm. "Think happy thoughts, like how much fun it will be making Jane stick singles down a couple of dancers' banana hammocks."

Yes, there is a slightly sad bit, but it's appropriate to the story line. Romantically sexy but not too steamy. If you know Jane's mother (think overwhelming) you understand why Jane would be reluctant to tell her she is engaged to her Sire, Gabriel. But, rare is the wedding where a family escapes unscathed. Molly certainly gets that! And, you have to love all the characters, except of course the characters trying to kill Jane or who are trying to steal her house, River Oaks. You have to love Gabriel, Jane's sire and fiance. He is a romantic man and proposes quite divinely. The story goes much the same way but for an immense twist I did not see coming really. Really! And, it appears this is the last novel Molly Harper plans featuring Jane's story, but she will appear, as will the Hollow in the spin off THE CARE AND FEEDING OF STRAY VAMPIRES (excerpt at the end of this book). Harper brings such loving realism to her characters you will find yourself missing them when you turn the last page. You'll even miss the obnoxious mothers and aunts and the sketchy Vampire redneck, Dick Cheney. They're the characters you want to invite over for a Bloody Mary. Though snarky and about vampires it could be snarky and about any group of people struggling against ignorance. Although in this instance, for once, it isn't stupid bigotry that is causing the biggest issue for the Jane and Gabriel. There is some bigotry, but it's at a personal level and speaks to love and family and acceptance. In the end what I take from Harper's series is that whether we're werewolves, human or vampires we're all just people with flaws and strengths, we're lovers parents, sons and daughters, friends and neighbors. It's the simplest thing in the world, isn't it yet it's obviously something we need to hear over and over in life. Harper make us laugh as we learn these truths and that's the best way to learn simple things; it is not at all pedantic and I doubt she sits down to write about "loving thy neighbor." NICE GIRLS DON'T BITE THEIR NEIGHBORS is a must read if you've read the series and if you haven't read the series you are missing out and it's still a must read.

    In this, the conclusion to the series, we get a lot of the same snarky humor from the last three books but also a satisfying sendoff for some of our favorite characters. Jolene and Zeb are new parents, Jane and Gabriel are getting married and rather unexpectedly dealing with the challenges of Jane’s siring a teenage boy as a new vampire, James grandmother passes away but insists on taking up residence as a ghost in River Oaks. I absolutely love the humor in these books and that Molly Harper allo In this, the conclusion to the series, we get a lot of the same snarky humor from the last three books but also a satisfying sendoff for some of our favorite characters.

I absolutely love the humor in these books and that Molly Harper allows the characters to grow up but not grow into people we didn’t recognize. And this book features lots of Olivia and lots of Jenny, both characters I loved for different reasons and both of whom get to show off parts of their personalities we haven’t gotten to see in previous books.

    Another funny book in this series, only that I'm sad it's the last one. But Molly Harper is one of my verra favorite authors now so I will read anything else she writes in the future. One thing that made me LOL in the book that I could identify with was the part where Jane and Gabriel find Ray's hideout and she describes that despite Kentucky having many nice looking normal residents, it never fails for a news channel to find the most undesirable to interview about the tornado that passed throug Another funny book in this series, only that I'm sad it's the last one.

I'm from MS and the same thing happens here. LMAO

    “She’s four hundred years old!” I blurted out. Jamie did a bit of a double take. “Really?” “Yes. That doesn’t make her a cougar, that makes her a saber-toothed tiger.” Jamie grinned. “That’s kind of hot.” And so ends this series (I think). Have thoroughly enjoyed the mixture of comedy, vamps who are badass but still clumsy and the mystery of "whodunit?" Also the audio version is amazing! Amanda Ronconi is a superb narrator. “She’s four hundred years old!” I blurted out. Jamie did a bit of a double take. “Really?” “Yes.

    This one is so far the funniest from all the volume. I can't just stop laugh. And the ending is a good one! This one is so far the funniest from all the volume. I can't just stop laugh. And the ending is a good one!

    Mini-Review: I read this when I read it because it was the last in a four book series, though I probably would have read it eventually. Good enough conclusion. With humor and stuff. This one includes another plot line that follows people getting married, while one of them complicates matters by accidentally becoming something of a parent – when she turns a human into a vampire. Good enough, passed the time well enough, mini-review because I can’t bloody write when people keep bloody walking arou Mini-Review: I read this when I read it because it was the last in a four book series, though I probably would have read it eventually. Good enough conclusion. With humor and stuff. This one includes another plot line that follows people getting married, while one of them complicates matters by accidentally becoming something of a parent – when she turns a human into a vampire. Good enough, passed the time well enough, mini-review because I can’t bloody write when people keep bloody walking around me. Rambling: I admit up front that one of the main reasons I read this book is because it was the fourth in a series wherein I’d read the first three books, and it, supposedly, was the last in the series. There are, in fact, other books, but they are ‘side-series’ or however that got worded. Different main characters than found in this series. This is not to say that I wouldn’t have read the book anyway, at some point, but just why I read it when I read it. To complete a series. Rare as that might be to do for me, complete a series – since so many seem unending, while others lose my interest before I complete them (if they themselves are complete; there’s two series off the top of my head I can think of that I have just one book left to read, but I might never get around to reading them: one is that last book in that dragon series by Novik, the other being the last in that Carol O’Connor Kathleen Mallory series (which I otherwise rather enjoyed). Unimportant rambling about current reviewing situation - (view spoiler)[hate writing reviews on my phone or on my laptop. And can’t really do so on my work computer, so I end up in situations like this here – lots of unreviewed books read, and a free moment to try to write something up, only to have someone stand near me. I hate when people stand near me. Mmphs. (hide spoiler)] I got wildly distracted by trying to remember two author names. So, let’s restart, eh? This is the last in this particular series by an author I’d never previously read before. A series about a young woman who gets fired, gets mildly drunk off a coupon she was given as a severance payment, gets shot dead by a drunk thinking she was a deer, and is then, in turn, turned into vampire (so, you know, she wouldn’t go ‘all the way dead’, just ‘almost dead’). Other than a brief moment when he was flirting with the human lead character in the bar (while she was still human), I never particularly liked the man/vampire/boyfriend/lust/hate-interest that Jane Jameson found herself attached to. But, eh, he wasn’t a dick or a stalker, or a creep who I’d put on my ‘punch in the dick’ shelf (eta: oops, I now recall certain things I wrote in other reviews; stupid people walking around me to distract me; yeah, Gabriel needs to go onto a 'punch in the dick' shelf), though he did have communication issues, and tried to keep his ‘child/girlfriend’ in the dark to the point that it literally endangered her life, but whatever (child because there’s this weird ‘vampire sire’ thing going on). That dynamic, the boyfriend/girlfriend dynamic, is important in this book, but I’ve gotten over my dislike of the main vampire dude. Which is good since this specific book follows Jane marrying her vampire sire, while, accidentally (well more in the heat of the moment) becoming a sire herself (we’re talking vampire’s and their ‘offspring’ here, so the fact that sire tends to involve a male parent, while the female version would be dam doesn’t matter, because, again, we are talking about vampires here). Distracted myself again. Good grief I can’t write while people keep darting around behind me. Shesh. Well, let’s write up a few words and stick them at the top since I’m not getting anywhere attempting to write a review out in the open like this here. Rating: 3.7 October 9 2019

    These are very cute, silly books that were exactly what I needed recently. The mysteries are crazy, lots of action and mayhem. You can't be too serious while reading. You don't have to read it order, but I cared more about the characters, I think. Cute and fun. Molly Harper books are a great way to forget about the real things going on in your own life. Entertaining and goofy. These are very cute, silly books that were exactly what I needed recently. The mysteries are crazy, lots of action and mayhem. You can't be too serious while reading.

    This was a fun read. I enjoyed the new characters we met, and he friendship between Jane, Jolene and Andrea is so well written. Gabriel and Dick were awesome, as expected. I enjoyed this.

    Posted at Yummy Men & Kick Ass Chicks Jane is back in Molly Harper’s fourth installment in her Jane Jameson series, Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors. It’s been a while. In fact, we thought that the third book published back in 2009 would be the last time we saw Jane in a new adventure. But then Molly happy-surprised us and wrote a fourth book – and it has all the endearing qualities that turned us into Jane enthusiasts in the first place. First I’m going to chat a bit about the story. Jan Posted at Yummy Men & Kick Ass Chicks Jane is back in Molly Harper’s fourth installment in her Jane Jameson series, Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors. It’s been a while. In fact, we thought that the third book published back in 2009 would be the last time we saw Jane in a new adventure. But then Molly happy-surprised us and wrote a fourth book – and it has all the endearing qualities that turned us into Jane enthusiasts in the first place. First I’m going to chat a bit about the story. Jane and Gabriel are getting married. I was glad to see that this wasn’t a Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men all over again. Jane actually gets someone else to plan most of the wedding. Iris who is a vampire concierge/event planner, is going to be the main character in her own book, The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires, coming out July 31st 2012. I think she is going to make a good main heroine. Clever and quick, a good combination. On top of that, someone is trying to off Jane…or is it Gabriel? *play spooky music*. So basically, we have a wedding, attempted murder(s) and Jane becoming a mommy – more on that in a sec. Now I’m going to chat about the characters. Let’s start with the star of the show, Jane. Jane is adorable. Very smart but a little spazzed, it’s that combination that makes her such a lovable character. Her sarcastic humor and quick wit offer us many giggle-out-loud moments and her heart makes us want her to succeed in everything she does. I have always liked Jane but I like her even more in this fourth book. She is confident in her relationship with Gabriel and she is also comfortable with being a vampire. In fact, she becomes a vampire sire in this book and she actually does a really good job at ‘raising’ Jamie. Jamie is the teenager that delivers to Jane’s store. Let’s just say that bad things happen and he ends up being turned…by Jane. He was great. Molly captured his teen-angst perfectly and I found myself smiling every time I appeared on the page. Gabriel is just as debonair as always. He is so the guy for Jane. He is cool and collected when she… well, isn’t and he really does love her for her. Dick and Andrea are always so much fun to read as are Zeb and Jolene. It was so great to read them again. We get to know a little more about Ophelia this time around which I enjoyed. I also actually liked Jane’s mother and sister too. Jenny is quite funny and mom isn’t as annoying as she was in past books. Too bad I can’t say the same about Grandma Ruthie. I was not a huge fan of the parts of the story where Grandma Ruthie graced the page. I have never liked that character. She’s just a mean old lady who didn’t really bring anything to the story other than being yet another person trying to stand in Jane’s way while calling her terrible names and pointing out falsehoods that just angered me. In past books I looked past it all but this time around I just couldn’t. I didn’t see the point in her being there. She hurt Jane horribly for no real reason other than to hurt her. I don’t think she added any humor to the book or anything new to the story. Hers were parts I could have done without. Other than that and the fact that there were a few plot elements that have not been done in the previous books, I quite liked this story. I always find Jane endearing and Gabriel yummy. I love watching Dick and Andrea and Zeb and Jolene interact amongst each other and with Jane and Gabriel. I love the sense of family that these six bring to the series. There were a lot of little moments near the end of the book that I wanted to write in “to be continued” so I really hope that somewhere down the road there is a fifth Jane book written. I always enjoy my time with these characters and hate to think of it coming to an end. Thank goodness they are forever inked on paper so we can re-read them over and over and over.
