Dysfunctional and quirky characters and their actions are what really make this a fun story. The lengths some people will go thru to get what they want is unbelievable, and Jane is definitely not a doormat. When she’s had enough you’ll find yourself smiling as she tells others what she thinks. But this story will also have you reaching for the tissues. Keep them handy.
Great relationships with friends is an important aspect of this book and I finished this with a warm fuzzy feeling.
Jane's life is like a cross between an I Love Lucy special and an episode of Punk'd. And it's hysterical at times. Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men is a definitively original, character-driven narrative of life on the other side of a pulse for the ex-librarian and slightly geeky Jane. It's not always easy, it's not always comfortable, but she's making do with what she has as she comes to terms with it all. And MAN her inner monologue makes me laugh.
I personally enjoyed Harper's first Jane book, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs, just a wee bit more, though this one was funnier. I just prefer books with a bit more of a story-driven plot and this one was light on that. That's a personal preference, though, not a critique, because without a doubt, Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men is one of the funniest books I've read in a very long time.
The few critical issues I have with the book is centered around Jane's family. I hate them. I really, really do. I think her mother needs to get her head out of her a....er...nether regions and her sister needs to have a house dropped on her - or a tree (can we get Gabriel to do that? I've heard he's good for that sort of thing).Read more ›
The most entertaining part of this novel was Mr. Wainwright. I'm still wondering why I'm supposed to like Gabriel. Dick was underused and missed (there is no such thing as too much Dick).
Jane has also learned some rather disturbing things about her grandmother's latest finance starting with his strange eating habits. Given her relationship with her grandmother and her reaction to Jane's turning, Jane is not sure whether to tell her or not.
Gabriel is Jane's sire and boyfriend. He says he loves her, but hes been traveling, a lot, and keeping secrets from Jane. He gets mysterious phone calls from someone named Jeanine. A name Jane has never heard him mention. The vampire council has also gotten involved and told him to clean it up or they would. Jane is confused and hurt that he won't confide in her.
Jane also suffers a personal loss that may change her future, for the good. And Jane really needs something good to come into her life.
I love this series. Its funny, and the characters are well written. You'll fall in love with them immediately. If you love paranormal romance written with some humor, I think you'll love this book.

There are some very steamy scenes in this series, but there is also a great deal of plot and intellectual merit, which moves this book from porn to something more romantic. Read morePublished 1 month ago by NeonGreen
