34) Nice Girls Don't Live Forever by Molly Harper

The Blurb :

Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson’s sexy sire, Gabriel, has always been unpredictable. But the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow — alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

Now the children’s-librarian-turned-vampire is reviving with plenty of Faux Type O, some TLC from her colorful friends and family, and her plans for a Brave New Jane. Step One: Get her newly-renovated occult bookstore off the ground. Step Two: Support her best friend, Zeb, and his werewolf bride as they prepare for the impending birth of their baby . . . or litter. Step Three: Figure out who’s been sending her threatening letters, and how her hostile pen pal is tied to Gabriel. Because for this nice girl, surviving a broken heart is becoming a matter of life and undeath...

My Thoughts :

I love this series and listening to it is turning out to be even more fun than reading the books. I have been dying to go back to this series for a while and listening to the audio's seemed like the perfect way to do just that. This third book about the Book loving vampire Jane Jameson is just as brilliant and funny as the previous books. The narrator does a spectacular job and brings Nice Girls Don't Live Forever to life and will have you giggling and rolling your eyes.

If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this series then you are really missing out on something amazing. Harper has a humour that is hard not to like and laugh at and her characters are just like the family you always wanted. The vampire angle is fresh and different with some other paranormals thrown in to add to the fun.

This time around the plot was one I could only vaguely remember. Certain parts felt new to me but I read the book about three years ago so it isn't surprising that most of the story has been forgotten. Revisiting this third part in the series was wonderul and definitely an audio I will be listening to again. I am looking forward to starting the next book and listening to it on my way to and from work. The only thing I have to be careful of is laughing out loud on public transport while Jane's dysfunctional family and friends make themselves known :).

This is a must read series by a must read author!

I've read the books but never tried the audiobooks; next one I'll check out.

I've read the first two books in this series and totally loved them. Thanks for reminding me. I need to dig out the rest of this series and catch back up.
