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.Yep, look at me! I read all 4 of these... in order! I'm so proud of myself! *puffs out chest* Guess I should be careful about doing that... I could poke out an eye. ;) I will say this to those that might find themselves with a book or two out of order... it is more fun to read these as I did, but you don't have to do so. You can go ahead and pick up any of these books and have fun reading it.
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…
Oh and this book! I have to say this was my fave of all 4! I liked it because the characters had grown. You know those books where the characters have to make the same mistakes ad nauseum? Smart people but never learn? Well, it seems that all the characters, wonderfully flawed, actually learned from previous mistakes. Very much acknowledging what they did wrong and what they want to do differently to affect the outcome. Of course the one thing that hasn't changed is the humor and I want to thank Molly Harper for that!
In this book we also get introduced to a new character, Jamie. Wait, that's not quite right... we were quickly introduced to this hot male jail bait in the last book, but we get to know him better. He becomes Jane's childe. And while I admit I did cringe when it happend because I was expecting the same tired ol' bad teen clichés, I didn't get that. Oh there were teen probs, but at least the kid wasn't annoying. In fact, I really enjoyed his character.
I so recommend this book and give it 4 1/2 stars. If you ever wanted to laugh at wedding preparations, near death experiences... or even full on death ones, mothering, ghosts and family, pick up this book. Your funny bone with thank you!
I received this book from the publisher, Pocket Books and no compensation for my review was given.
