26) Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men by Molly Harper

The Blurb :

With her best friend Zeb’s Titanic-themed wedding looming ahead, new vampire Jane Jameson struggles to develop her budding relationship with her enigmatic sire, Gabriel. It seems unfair that she’s expected to master undead dating while dealing with a groom heading for a nuptial nervous breakdown, his hostile werewolf in-laws, and the ugliest bridesmaid dress in the history of marriage.

Meanwhile, the passing of Jane’s future step-grandpa puts Grandma Ruthie back on the market. Her new fiancé, Wilbur, has his own history of suspiciously dead spouses, and he may or may not have died ten years ago. Half-Moon Hollow’s own Black Widow has finally met her match.

Should Jane warn her grandmother of Wilbur’s marital habits or let things run their course? Will Jane always be an undead bridesmaid, never the undead bride?

My Thoughts :

I read Nice Girls Don't Date Men a few years ago when it first came out. Since then I have read everything Molly Harper has written and every single book is a joy to read. So I am revisiting the Jane Jameson series via Audiobook and I have to say I am enjoying it just as much as when I read it. The narrator rocks the characters and style of the book and does it complete justice.

The only problem with this series is the amount you laugh and giggle. It isn't so bad at home in the comfort of your own home but I have got a few strange looks from people on the underground while listening to this book. You can't help but smile and grin at Jane's dysfunctional family and friends. Then there are the amazing things that come out of Jane's mouth. Always worth a laugh out loud moment.

If you haven't already tried this series or author then I can only seriously suggest you do. Not light and fluffy but more Besty (MaryJanice Davidson) when she was still worth reading, this is one of my favourite series and I can't wait to listen to book #3 sometime soon! Hopefully my audio credit day isn't too far away!
