Good Girls Don't Live Forever by Molly Harper

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy

Series: Jane Jameson book 3

Copyright: 2009

Pages: 304

Rating: 4 1/2 Crowns

Back Cover:

Nothing sucks the romance out of a 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 Hallow--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... 


NICE GIRLS DON'T LIVE FOREVER by Paranormal Romance author, Molly Harper is the third in her "Nice Girls Don't" series.  I have to admit I am a sucker for a good vampire story, especially one that makes me laugh from the first page until the end.

Newbie vampire, Jane Jamison is on a world win travel excursion when notes are being left for her bad-boy-vampire boyfriend, Gabriel.  To say that the notes have drained the fun out of their getaway is putting it mildly.  Gabriel has taken it upon himself to leave Jane at the hotels and returning warn, weary and grumpy.  A girl can only take so many times switching hotel rooms at the drop of a hat.  Jane and Gabriel are so edgy it's no wonder she's on a plane heading home to Half Moon Hallow--alone.

Pulling herself together and ready to make a life with or with out Gabriel is hard at first for Jane.  But her friends rally around and hoping to distract her with her best bud and his wife expecting and the crazy Courtney Clones of the Chambers of Commerce Jane is putting Gabriel out of her mind.  That is until mysterious and creepy letters start to arrive.  Tack on the resident owner's ghost nephew has shown up on her door step wanting his inheritance back.   Okay, so throw in a dysfunctional family that really hasn't come to terms wth Jane being a vampire and you have one rip roaring read.

Molly Harper writes with wit and sincerity which are two combinations that I love. The moment I read the back cover I was drawn to the concept of a meek and mild librarian falling in love and being turned into a vampire.  Honestly, I'm use to reading about kick-ass heroines who fight demons, warlocks, witches and the undead.  But I love the fact that even thought Jane is a vampire she still has the growth spurts of drama through her life. She's trying to hold on to her boyfriend, run her occult bookshop with her amazing vampire and his girlfriend.  She is trying to be normal--as normal a vampire can be but she been invited to Half moon Hallows Chamber of Commerce where it's run by women--The Courtney's.  Along with that her family hasn't quite accepted that she likes her new life.

"GOOD GIRLS DON'T LIVE FOREVER" was so fun to read and it's characters are stong and alive and seem to jump off the page.  Jane Jameson might not be your rough and tumbled vampire that your used to that's okay with her. Be forewarned, you still don't want to tick her off because she would drain you before you count to one.  Honestly, I loved this story and it was a great book that had me laugh all the way through.   I can't wait to visit Half Moon Hallow again.
