Book Review: Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men by Molly Harper

Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men
By Molly Harper
Release Date: August 25, 2009
Summary: Following Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs, the second in a hilarious, smart, sexy romantic series about an out-of-work librarian who is turned into a vampire.
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? Combining Mary Janice Davidson’s sass and the charm of Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhousenovels, this is an incredibly satisfying read for fans of paranormal romantic comedy.

Review: Jane Jameson is at it again, and this time she's back planning the wedding between her best friend and his werewolf fiancé. And you know there's bound to be more paranormal creatures, sarcastic comments from Jane, and mystery from the dark and broody Gabriel. 

Jane is even more lovable in this book than she was before. She's finally getting used to being undead (though her family, obviously, is not) and she's finally found her place in the paranormal bookshop owned by an adorable old man. Her relationship is still a little rocky with Gabriel, but they're figuring things out despite his mysterious business trips and troubles over an unknown female. 

But onto the main attraction: Zeb and Jolene's wedding. The book goes through about 6 months of planning the grand Titanic themed wedding. Even though they clearly love each other, Jolene's family feels they need to put Zeb in his place by roughing him around a bit, and Zeb's mom still feels like Zeb and Jane are meant to be. With so many things going on, Jane has more than enough on her plate. 

Watching humans, vampires, werewolves, and other paranormal creatures interact is so entertaining and I love each and every one of their personalities. Dick is as devilishly charming as ever and even Jane's annoying, vampire-hating families are opening up (however minuscule their acceptance is...). 

I love this world Molly Harper created with charming characters and story lines that never grow dull. I could read about Jane forever, which is why I'm so excited to read the next two books of the series! I can't wait to see what happens next to the undead ex-librarian and her crazy, yet lovable friends and family.
