Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men by Molly Harper

Jane Jameson, once-children's-librarian-turned-vampire has a full plate, so to speak. ;P Her best friend Zeb is getting married to a were. Gabriel is more elusive, yet more charming, than ever. Her job at the occult shop is about to get more interesting. Her playful friend Dick has suddenly developed a serious crush on her only human girlfriend. Not to mention her sister Jenny is suing her for "rights" to Jane's house and all the family heirlooms it contains...annnd her mother is having a wee bit of difficulty adjusting to Jane's new nighttime hours and liquid diet. Just a typical day for our fiercely snarky heroine.

Can I just start off by saying HOW MUCH I LOVE this series?! I seriously can't get enough of it! The characters are well-developed, they're the kind of people/creatures you want to get to know. One thing I really like about this series is that Jane is closer to her friends than her actual family. This is something that I highly relate to. Jane is a sarcastic, lovable character that you can't help but cheer for. The story plot in this second installment of the series is phenomenal. There is a lot going on, so pay close attention. ;) I read this book in no less than 3 sittings and absolutely cannot wait to dive into the third (and currently last *insert sigh*) book in the series, Nice Girls Don't Live Forever.

Cover Art Commentary:
I absolutely adore this cover. Colorful and playful, with a touch of bite, just like the story itself! ;) It took me a while to realize that the jewelry Jane is wearing on the cover are little bats. :P

Overall Rating:


  1. I really can't wait to read this series - it keeps moving higher up my wish list :o)

  2. I've read somewhere that there were only going to be three books in this series. That kinda stinks since the books sound terrific. I wonder why the author is stopping on the third book?

  3. HOW MUCH I LOVE this series
    ...I think I'll have to break down and try it myself. :P

  4. By the way, you're at 100 followers even right now: congratulations!

  5. @Sarah
    It's soooo good! :)

    They are fantastic! I heard they are only publishing 3 as well! It makes me terribly sad! I just want to serious to continue for a bit!

    I think you'll like it much better than Charlaine Harris! and YAAAAAAAY! Thanks friend! :)

  6. Great review, the book sounds like something I would like. The covers of the books are lot of fun and I like the colours of the titles.
