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…
I had never thought to pick up the Jane Jameson series before the publisher contacted me to review NICE GIRLS DON'T BITE THEIR NEIGHBORS. The publicist was nice enough to send me the whole series and once I started reading book 1 I could not put it down until book 4 ended.

Jane is my kind of girl. She doesn't take crap from anyone, she is absolutely laugh out loud hilarious and I never know what will happen next with her. Jane finally accepts Gabriel's proposal and things seem to go smoothly until the teenager that delivers to her store is hit by a car and the only way to save him is for Jane to turn him. I thought Jane's new childe was a great addition to an already hectic house. Jane's Grandma finally kicks the bucket, unfortunately she decides she has the right to Jane's house still and haunts it until Jane has a brilliant plan that finally gets rid of her. I knew Jane couldn't get marries smoothly and thought the whole ending was so Jane Jameson. I have really grown to love all of Jane's friends and even her family throughout the series (Grandma excluded).

NICE GIRLS DON'T BITE THEIR NEIGHBORS was fast paced and The whole series was highly entertaining and I would recommend you go out and buy all the books now. I have not seen anything about a book 5 but I hope that Molly writes more Jane in the future.

I gave it 5/5 stars
