Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighborsby Molly Harper
Synopses & Reviews
WITH THIS RING, I THEE DEAD.
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…
"Harper serves up a terrific fourth dose of vamp camp from Half-Moon Hollow (after Nice Girls Don't Live Forever). Jane Jameson's life is finally coming together. She's got great friends; her family is finally coming to terms with her new life as a vampire; her specialty bookstore is getting tons of business; and the man she loves has popped the question. But nothing ever runs this smoothly for Jane. After a terrible accident, Jane turns teen Jamie Lanier into a vampire to save his life and later becomes his guardian. Then there are the death threats, the wedding planning, and the annoying ghostly presence of her Grandma Ruthie. Jane takes it all on with sass and style. The stellar supporting characters, laugh-out-loud moments, and outrageous plot twists will leave readers absolutely satisfied. Agent: Stephany Evans, FinePrint Literary Management."

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STOP HIDING—AND START LIVING?
Willow Briars only has to glance at her identical twin sister, Holly—slim, happy, married with two beautiful children—to see how her life might have turned out differently. The divorced Willow, who works at a London talent agency, has all the outward trappings of success, yet her dissatisfaction is growing along with her dress size. Add in a long-term, fruitless crush on her friend Daniel, and Willow has started to feel invisible.
Then she buys a mysterious pair of vintage shoes that make her feel sexy, daring, more confident. Since shes also babysitting a disgraced starlet and caring for the ex-stepdaughter who just landed on her doorstep, her life is suddenly full. Willow must reevaluate everything she once believed about love, heartache, and her own worth. But can she learn how to stop running from her past and embrace whatever her future may hold?
This heartfelt, uplifting novel is a story of courage, second chances, and learning how a thousand small pleasures—shared laughter, beautiful shoes, an unexpected kiss—can make all the difference in the world.
The fourth book in the sexy, “hilariously fun,” (Romantic Times “Top Pick”) romantic comedy series about a children’s librarian turned vampire—perfect for fans of Katie Macalister and MaryJanice Davidson. Just as un-life seems to be stabilizing for Jane Jameson, fate returns to sink its fangs and wreak havoc. Despite Jane’s almost-phobic approach to the process, wedding planning is going smoothly. But then Jane happens upon her former babysitting charge, Jamie Lanier, injured and dying outside of a bookstore. When Jamie asks her to turn him, she reluctantly does so and takes Jamie in at River Oaks at the Council’s insistence.
Jane’s life is further complicated when Grandma Ruthie dies, only to return to haunt River Oaks. Outside the old house lurks an even more sinister presence. As the faceless threat draws closer, Jane begins to wonder whether she will ever make it down the aisle. Will their friends accept Jamie—the newest, somewhat annoying, addition to their little family? Will Jane ever feel like a nice girl again?
