146. Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men by Molly Harper...

September 4, 2009
About the book:
Forever a bridesmaid, Never an undead bride

Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a run-down occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid--which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read. While Jane is trying to master undead dating, she is also donning the ugliest bridesmaid's dress in history at her best friend Zeb's Titanic-themed wedding. Between a freaked-out groom-to-be, his hostile werewolf in-laws, and Zeb's mother, hell-bent on seeing Jane walk the aisle with Zeb, Jane's got the feeling she's just rearranging the proverbial deck chairs.

Meanwhile, Half Moon Hollow's own Black Widow, Jane's Grandma Ruthie, has met her match in her latest fiancé. He smells like bad cheese and has a suspicious history of dead spouses. But Jane's biting her tongue. After all, would a nice girl really think she has a future with a vampire?

drey's thoughts:
Molly Harper so does NOT disappoint with this follow up to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs! I laughed out loud at Jane's kvetching about the bridesmaid's dress--holy moly it's UGLY! Molly's descriptions, and her dialog, will have you laughing out loud. The characters are entertaining; I cannot believe the extent to which Zeb's mother will go to, to get Zeb to marry Jane instead of Jolene. And speaking of the werewolf, the "quality family time" with hers, is downright scary.

There's a bit of drama (wouldn't be interesting if there wasn't, now would it?), a dash of Bridezilla, and a whiff of corniness. But it all adds up to an enjoyable read that doesn't require much thinking, so if you're looking for entertaining & quick, pick this up.

I'll have to start from the beginning of this series because I definitely want to read them as they come. I am in a dire need to read something that will keep me laughing out loud.
