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…
My Thoughts :
This is a series I love and listening to it has turned out to be even more fun than reading the books. Listening to the audio versions has been so much fun and I think I can actually say this has been one of my favourite audio book experiences so far. This fourth book about the Book loving vampire Jane Jameson is just as amazingly funny as the previous books. If you haven't tried this author or this series then you are in for a real treat because you don't have to wait between books to find out what mad-cap adventures/troubles Jane gets herself into.
I remembered a lot more about the storyline this time around because it isn't that long ago since I read the book. However it still held a few surprises for me. While I could clearly remember Jane making a newborn and the plot revolving around this and her upcoming marriage, I had totally forgot about the Grandma Ruthie angle and some of the 'someone is trying to kill me' plot. So I enjoyed revisiting this installment again.
Fun, paranormal and just hilarious, this series shows that vampire, human or werewolf, your family can can be as dysfunctional and crazy as the next persons. Molly Harper has a great writing style that makes you laugh, be sympathtic and roll your eyes all within a few sentences and while it all seems a little over the top you find yourself thinking back to your own family and friends and their similar antics.
This is a must read series by a must read author!
