Jane Jameson, a childrenís librarian
turned vampire, finally got away on a vacation with her
boyfriend and sire, Gabriel Nightengale. What should have
been a great European trip turned bad fast for Jane.
Gabriel receives notes he isnít showing Jane, disappears
without an explanation, and heís very, very testy. When
Jane discovers a woman is sending the notes, she leaves.
But itís not like Jane has nothing to do with her new
bookstore opening soon. Add to that, she has just been
accepted to the Chamber of Commerce, her best friends are
having a baby very soon, and her sister, Jenny, is still out
to make Janeís undead life as difficult as possible.
Ignoring the Gabriel problem, Jane soon
discovers that Courtneyís have over taken the Chamber and
are worse than any creature of the night as far as Jane can
see. But a determined businessperson, as Jane wants to be,
is going to see the funny side of it and do her assignments
Ė no matter how distasteful. What isnít funny is that Jane
has begun getting nasty messages from someone who seems to
know all about her and Gabriel. Small and large things are
just getting too complicated all the sudden. Is it undead
Karma or does someone(s) have a reason for wanting Jane to
go from undead to just dead?
What to do when your undead life just
wonít settle down? Nice Girls Donít Live Forever
is the third installment in this series as Jane learns about
her new life as a vampire. I found that Jane and her
friends live their lives with a rare form of sarcastic
humor. Watching as Jane worked at making sense of all the
chaos around her, I wondered if becoming immortal was really
worth it. While I really enjoyed the humor, I had to wonder
why everything seemed to be a major and huge complication
that just added to the stress level. I have to say that
minor complaint is the only one I could find, which isnít
much. Like all good romances, I found that love (both good
and bad) was the cause and the result of this chaotic peek
into Janeís life. Nice Girls Donít Live Forever
is a humor filled check-in on a fun-loving librarian turned
vampire. Sure to make you smile.
