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.... (from the back of the book)

My Thoughts:

Book 2 (Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men) ended with Gabriel offering Jane an overseas holiday. Immediately I thought ‘oh, the places they will go’… Sadly, the only place they went was the hotel, then due to Gabriel’s super-secret-I’m-not-talking-about-the-mysterious-letters-scrawled-in-a-woman’s-hand ways, Jane left a not too bother about her leaving Gabriel and returned to her undead life at Moon Hollow.

While I enjoyed this installment, I did not think that it was in the same league as the rest of the series. It almost seemed as though the author was in a writing slump. At times, I was annoyed with Jane because rather than questioning Gabriel she turned and fled. Yet I still enjoyed the tension between the two of them. I also enjoyed Jane’s frolic with the chamber of commence.

Overall, it was still an enjoyable edition to the Jane Jameson series.

Because I am a Jane Jameson addict, I had to read the funny little add-on short story that explains how Jane & Gabriel moved into each other. I love when authors give readers little bonus reads like this.

Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

Jane’s kitchen barely holds enough Faux Type O to satiate the cute teen’s appetite and maintain Gabriel’s jealous streak at a slow simmer. As if keeping her hyperactive childe from sucking the blood out of the entire neighborhood isn’t enough to deal with, the persnickety ghost of Jane’s newly deceased grandma Ruthie has declared war on the fanged residents of River Oaks. Suddenly choosing monogrammed cocktail napkins and a cake she can’t even eat seem downright relaxing in comparison.

Tensions inside the house are growing…and outside, a sinister force is aiming a stake straight for the center of Gabriel’s heart. Most brides just have to worry about choosing the right dress, but Jane fears that at this rate, she’ll never make it down the aisle for the wedding all nice girls dream of… (from the back of the book)

My Thoughts:

This is the fourth (and I do believe the final—gasp what will I do with the wacky antics of Jane Jameson?) book in the Jane Jameson series and it still had me as spellbound as the first.

The slump that I found in book three (see the review above) has completely disappeared and Molly Harper is back to her wicked witty writing that has me staying up until the wee hours of the morn to finish the book.

In this installment, we have Jane & Gabriel living together and trying work on having a healthy adult relationship. However, we know that if Jane is involved something will go awry and it did in the form of Jane creating a childe of her own. It just so happens that this childe in particular was one of the kids Jane used to babysit and now will forever be a teenager.

Jane and Gabriel must figure out the skill of co-habitation while also getting a crash course on parenting a modern teen.

I loved this book, and I must admit was a little (okay completely) sad to say goodbye to the characters. I could go on forever about this series but I will leave it to you, dear readers, to discover how it ends.

If you love light, witty contemporary vampire comedies then the Jane Jameson series should be on your must read list.
