Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper

Thursday, May 17, 2012
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…

Goodreads Summary

Jane Jameson and Gabriel have moved in together, and are planning their wedding.  Jane’s recently deceased grandma ghost causes problems for all vampires…and some crazy driver nearly kills a teen she used to babysit.  In order to save him, Jane “turns” him.  Now, she’s the mommy for a hungry new vampire who misses his disapproving family.  Someone’s trying to kill Gabriel; the story is tense and dangerous, but the dialogue is hilarious.

Although this is the fourth book in the series, it is the first book I’ve read.  I’ve gone from loving any kind of vampire story…to getting a little tired of them.  The comedy here makes this series stand out!   I should have put it down, but when Jane turned Jamie – I had to finish reading.  Great situations and lines kept me smiling all through.
