Review: Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs by Molly Harper (New Author Challenge)

nice-girls-dont-have-fangsFrom the back of the book:

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 $25 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 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. He 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?

NICE GIRLS DON’T HAVE FANGS is hilarious. Jane is having a really bad day and getting shot while being mistaken for a deer is just the icing on the cake. I loved Jane, she is very funny, brace, and vulnerable. She takes to being turned into a vampire very well (as well as can be expected) and only has one mishap (where she almost bites her best friend). I found the writing wonderful. The book read very quickly and I couldn’t put it down. Molly Harper is a fantastic new writer and I can’t wait to read more!!!

the book girl gives NICE GIRLS DON’T HAVE FANGS 5/5!
