Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men" is Molly Harper's second Jane Jameson novel. I first noticed that I really liked the cover. The second thing I noticed was that the book was decently `plump' in size. I bought this book at the same time I bought the new Servant and Alpha & Omega books. They both seemed disappointingly thin, so "NGDDDM" stood out in comparison. Now I admit to enjoying both urban fantasy and paranormal romance but this series really doesn't fit in either genre. "NGDDDM" doesn't really have a main plot but Jane has a lot going on. Her best friend Zeb is marrying Jolene, a werewolf. Her were-family is trying to maim or kill him. Zeb's mother, Mama Ginger, is convinced Jolene is wrong for Zeb and is taking desperate measures to convince Zeb he should marry Jane instead. Jane's sire and boyfriend Gabriel is disappearing and being mysterious. Now Grandam Ruthie has another dead husband and a new fiancé who may just be one of the UNDEAD. And this isn't even including her regular family and work drama! My complaint with the first book was that although the book at times was laugh aloud funny, the story's main idea wasn't very unique. That is still a legitimate opinion with book 2. The idea of a girl turning vampire and falling for her sire has been done and done over. Yet there is an undeniable charm in Molly Harper's series. The characters are likeable and fun. The situations these characters find themselves in are over the top, but often hilarious. The reason for that hilarity is that even in Harper's most outrageous situations, some relatable (and human) element shines through. Have most of us not wanted to throw a plate through our sister's car and break her windows?Read more ›

Jane Jameson has only been a vampire for a few months. She’s still having problems with her family, her best friend Zeb is getting married to a werewolf and she’s asked to be the Best Maid. Of course nothing goes smoothly through the engagement, but we do learn about the werewolf culture. And Jane’s relationship with her sire, Gabriel, is confusing to her as he knows that she’s aware he’s keeping things from her. She should just trust him.

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.

Poor Jane. She's got the bridesmaid dress from hell, a dead great aunt with a penchant for getting some ghostly nookie in her living room, a mother who refuses to come to terms with her less-than-alive status (and still foists food off on her at every chance), a grandmother who's a black widow - maybe, a sister who loathes her, a boyfriend/sire who keeps disappearing for weeks at a time with suspicious reasons...when there are any, and a best friend who's begun to make some disturbing sexual and emotional advances on her - despite his engagement to a werewolf (whose family could eat him). Oh yeah, and she's a vampire.

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).

Honestly, I didn't care for this one nearly as much as Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs. I love a good antagonist, but this novel was packed full of horrid, grating characters. If it wasn't Zeb's uber-meddling mother on the page, it was Jane's god-awful family. I worry that the author is actually related to manipulation masters like those in this series.
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).

Always the bridesmaid .... and in the ugliest dress ever created. Jane Jameson, newly turned vampire has the pleasure of being the bridesmaid and helping plan the wedding of her best friend Zeb and his werewolf fiance. Jollene, the bride, has chosen the theme Titanic for the wedding. One of the worst disasters ever. This wedding is shapping up to be the second. Jollene's werewolf clan is less than enthusiastic about her marrying a human. And the groom may not make it to the alter if her family doesn't stop "havin' a bit of fun" with him. So far he's lost a toe, needed an eyepatch for an unfortunate bottle rocket accident and had part of his ear ripped off while fishing. If that's not enough, Zeb is suffering terrible headaches and saying hurtful things to his bride to be. Making her family even less happy.
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.
