Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is an adult paranormal romance novel. This book is rated NC-17 for mild sexual content.
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…
This was a very good read as I expected from this author. This story isn’t rocket science and it is meant to be light. There isn’t a hard nose mystery to solve or danger lurking around the corner to make you say boo. But what it is, is a well delivery, well crafted and well executed witty story.
I love Jane Jameson. She is a no nonsense kind of girl who gets to the point with her well timed quips. Her leading man Gabriel who was a bit of a bad boy has been somewhat tamed in this story. Thankfully, Jaime is brought in to fill in those shoes to a point. Molly Harper knows how to craft character and make them jump out of the page with fresh life.
The storyline was interesting as we watch Jane go through another transition in her life which is always funny to read. If you haven’t read this series, it’s a must for those needing a break from the heavy stuff. There is laughter and a bit of sexiness, nothing over the top.
Will I recommend this book? Yes, heck yes. I will proudly suggest people read this is. It is pretty bloody fantastic.
My book boyfriend is Jamie.
Since I never posted Gabriel, consider this a double treat.
