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? (from the back of the book)

My Thoughts:

Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men is the second installment of Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson series and it more or less picks up from where the first book leaves off.

In this installment of Jane’s Adventures As A Member of the Undead, we see her relationship with Gabriel progress (okay so its more like a rollercoaster ride given that Gabriel is Jane’s sire and she is often times an highly independent child). We also get all the little odd (and occasionally harmful) details of Zeb & Jolene’s impending wedding. I hope Zeb has good health insurance considering that Jolene’s werewolf family seem intent on injuring him (weapons involved include but are not limited to bottles, traps, and fishhooks).

Of course, Jane’s family is still in denial over Jane receiving her official welcome basket from the Undead Committee. And we see her grandmother Ruth, who is now on the hunt for new husband after burying yet another husband, getting involved with a monster of her own, even though she cannot accept Jane’s new condition (although I am fairly sure given their relationship Jane could have been elected president and her gran would still find something to complain about).

Overall this book was another fangtastic read from the highly comedic Molly Harper. While not as funny as the first book, it still had me laughing aloud while those around me looked at me as if I had gone mad.

And while I love, Gabriel it seems that Dick stole the book as his character came into his own in this installment.

I just dont think I would do a theme. I would keep it more traditional but in a wide open space with plenty of room to move and spread out if needed.
