Spotlight: Jane Jameson Series

One of my favorite discoveries of 2009 was the Jane Jameson series. There are lots of funny, fierce female characters out there in urban fantasy land but few as endearing as Jane.

The stuff Jane goes through on a daily basis dealing with being newly undead are cute, the sort of stuff everyone really wonders about. I mean what would a newly turned vampire in modern days do about sunlight or a dislike for the taste of blood? How would she deal with technically being dead enough her family might want to inquire about an inheritance?

Molly was sweet enough to send me a copy of Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men last fall but I didn't get around to reviewing it until tonight because it was the book I was working on when I went into labor. After I had the baby the first things I did (besides the obvious shower and snuggle my newborn) were ask for a cranberry juice, my froggie slippers and my book I could see what was going to happen with the wedding of the century!

So I owe Molly a HUGE thanks for sending me not only a comp copy of the book but a nifty bookmark too! And big apologies for not getting the review up sooner.

Now that she has three books out in this series I am dying to find out if she's got a contract to do more but in the meantime check out her website www.mollyharper.com or her blog (she has done some fun interviews!) and look for a non-paranormal romance she has coming out later this year called And One Last Thing...

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed twenty-five dollars in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood.
Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She's forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What's a nice undead girl to do?

Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men (Jane Jameson #2) by Molly Harper
Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Vampires
Mass Market Paperback (POCKET STAR, 400 pages, $7.99)
ISBN# 1416589430
Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read. While Jane is trying to master undead dating, she is also donning the ugliest bridesmaid's dress in history at her best friend Zeb's Titanic-themed wedding. Between a freaked-out groom-to-be, his hostile werewolf in-laws, and Zeb's mother, hell-bent on seeing Jane walk the aisle with Zeb, Jane's got the feeling she's just rearranging the proverbial deck chairs.
Meanwhile, Half Moon Hollow's own Black Widow, Jane's Grandma Ruthie, has met her match in her latest fiancé. He smells like bad cheese and has a suspicious history of dead spouses. But Jane's biting her tongue. After all, would a nice girl really think she has a future with a vampire?

Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Vampires
Mass Market Paperback (POCKET STAR, 336 pages, $7.99)
ISBN# 1416589449
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 suddenly becoming a matter of life and undeath....
