If it wasn't for the dark and handsome guy from the bar she would be dead. The jury is still out on whether being undead is good or not. All Jane knows is that is so hungry she could eat her best friend and that her mother is going to hit the roof when she finds out. Jane's life is changing and it will take some getting used to. Luckily she has the Guide for the Newly Undead to help her as well as her favourite dead aunt who she can now see and hear again.
Finding a steady blood supply and black out curtains is high up on Jane's list of things to do. Getting a job would be handy but making sure her dog and best friend still want to be associated with her even if she is a blood sucking vampire is a high priority. A relationship with her sire may not be such a good idea but he is very interested in her and she really needs his help because it looks like someone is trying to frame her for a few murders.
This debut novel is very lovable. The author has not only managed to create a new vampire type and make it her own but she has also managed to make it fresh and original enough to keep it from being like all the other vampire chick-lit books out there. The story is well written and the plot grows all the way through right until the last chapter.
Fun, witty and very tasty this looks like a series to watch. With book number two already due out in September there is no doubt that I will be looking for a copy of Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men when it becomes available. I have to know what Jane gets up to next and who with ;)

Harper definitely did a good job balancing the cute with the realistic. Jane's dysfunctional family, ghost of an aunt and best friend Zeb provide plenty of comic foil. Her far-from-perfect relationships with these characters lend themselves well to carrying a series.
Perhaps the best part of all is the fact that while there is a sexy vamp love interest, or two ;), she doesn't fall head over heels in love by the end of the novel.
Even if the plot wasn't as solid as it is, or the characters as enjoyable, I would definitely plan on picking up the second book, Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men, just for the laughs alone
I expected this be a romance with an HEA, but found after reading it that it’s a series, following Jane as she navigates her new world, dysfunctional family, quirky friends and a relationship with her sire. And each one has some aspect of a mystery to it.
Humor abounds as Jane isn’t especially accepting of her changed circumstances. She’s got enough problems with her family so just how and when is she going to break the news to them? Vampires are out, but there is a great deal of fear and prejudice, and someone is out to get her.
Jane’s relationship with Gabriel feels a little off and the story is somewhat jerky with her actions concerning him that sometimes seem to come out of left field. But again, this isn’t the HEA book I thought I’d be reading. Perhaps it wouldn’t have felt off if I’d known that up front.
Definitely an interesting and funny story that seems to drag a little at times. But you’ve got to love the characters.
