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 all things marital, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend Gabriel are coming along smoothly. But the road to wedded bliss gets bumpy when a teenage acquaintance is fatally wounded in front of Jane’s shop and she turns him to save his life. The Council pronounces Jane responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

Jane’s kitchen at River Oaks 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 a war on the fanged residents of River Oaks. Suddenly, choosing monogrammed cocktail napkins and a cake that she can’t eat seems 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…

My Thoughts:
Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors was a very cute ending to this absolutely fantastic series.
Jane and Gabriel are getting married (finally!) and it’s up to Jane and her wacky band of friends and family to pull this day together. Jane was once again hysterically fabulous as she has consistently been throughout the series. I love and have loved every second that I read of her.

Jane has always been a little reluctant to tie the knot and when she finally does naturally multiple things go wrong. Not only is the newly ghostly Grandma Ruthie doing everything she possibly can to ruin Jane’s wedding, Jane also has to deal with Jamie, a local teenager who was run down in front of her shop and while he was on the brink of death was saved by Jane’s transforming bite. On top of everything else Jane has to deal with, the car that hit Jamie, was actually aiming for Jane a truth Jane finds out after more attempts are made on her life.

Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors was another fantastic instalment in this series. Laugh out loud funny, with the exact right amount of romance and drama. Harper’s writing is superb. From the very first sentence she had me hooked until the final page. Naturally I want more Jane but I also feel that Harper ended exactly where she needed to and we still have her spin off series to enjoy whenever we need a new fix of Half-Moon Hollow.
This series has been an absolute joy to read. I have looked forward to each new instalment with an enthusiasm only reserved for my absolute favourite of series. Harper has reserved a permanent spot on my favourites shelf and I can’t wait to delve into another of her series.




I give Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors 5 Stars

    Thank you for the wonderful post! I love, love, LOVE Molly Harper’s Nice Girls Series and her other books as well. Her writing style is a joy to read. Whenever I’ve had a rough day/week/month, I pick up a Molly Harper book, she makes me laugh and everything’s ok.

      I am exactly the same! I read quite a few depressing books and this series was the one to cheer me up again!

      I am going to try out her naked werewolf series next, I just hope it’s as good as this one

    I haven’t picked it up yet but will be, this series makes me laugh so much!

    • Amanda April 23, 2013 at 2:08 am

      i didn’t pick this one up for a long time. I read the first three nearly back to back and then went for about a year before reading this. But it was so easy to slide back into the story 🙂

    Nice review Amanda. I still have to start reading this series, but it is nice to know it has an ending.

    • Amanda April 23, 2013 at 2:10 am

      yeah it was sad to see it end, but I do feel a certain relief that I’m not going to have to retain the world and characters in my head until the next one
