Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed twenty-five dollars in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood.

Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She's forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What's a nice undead girl to do?

A librarian turned vampire with quotes like “It took me awhile to learn the rules. OK, it took the librarian in me weeks of careful obsessive research to learn the rules. There was a label maker involved. I'd rather not go into it.”
“You can take the girl out of the library, but you can’t take the neurotic, compulsively curious librarian out of the girl.”
“She was the type of librarian who has “Reading is supposed to be educational, not fun” tattooed somewhere.”

Not interested, based on other books I have read by this author.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Fun, lively and interesting light read. Perfect. I needed this book, it made my day. This book was funny, the main character is sarcastic, strong, and really enjoyable. I needed a good series to get into, and I'm hoping the subsequent ones live up to the promise of the first.

LIght entertainment that never fails to amuse. I always enjoy this author's witty repartee. A good series to read between heavier tomes.

If you looking for a good book with quite a few laughs then pick this book up. It's been awhile since I read it but it's really good. :)

This book was a hoot! I am totally pulled in and I am waiting for the second in the series. A vampire book with romance and humor. Just loved it!

This book was great!! It was very funny; I was laughing out loud a lot. It's a vampire book with a lighter side. You should definitely read it. You won't be able to put it down!!

This book had me laughing out loud (and illiciting strange looks from bystanders as I did so). Imagine your worse day ever - and you can't even come close to Jane Jameson. Not only has she been fired from her position at the library, but she also blew her severence pay (a $25 gift certificate for a local bar) trying to drown her sorrows. On the way home her car dies, she falls into a ditch, she gets covered in mud, mistaken as a deer (and shot), to be rescued a stranger with a fangy smile. What a great way to start an afterlife!
