Title: Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever
Author: Molly Harper
Narrator: Amanda Ronconi
Series: Jane Jameson #3
Length: 8 hr 58 min
Jane Jameson’s story continues with a rocky vacation with Gabriel, where he might have broken up with her. Back in Half-Moon Hollow, Jane spends her time dedicated to her occult bookstore and preparing for Zeb and Jolene’s baby shower. And trying to get over her feelings for Gabriel.
While I did enjoy this book, the breakup and arguments with Gabriel were a bit of a downer for me. Like in the previous books, Gabriel continues to not talk to Jane about issues and it all comes to a head in this book. At this point, I don’t really love Gabriel because I can’t really envision a HEA for these two. I just see him continuing to create problems by not trusting Jane and more fights. Hopefully in the next book my opinion of him will get better but we will see.
Like I said, even with the issues with Gabriel I still enjoyed this book. I loved the found family that Jane has found in Zeb, Jolene, Dick and Andria. Their friendship was what really sold this book for me. Jane is a better person with them around and I think they are all better with her around too. And while I still think Jane’s family is toxic, it was really nice to see that her mother and sister are starting to change and bridges are being mended.
The narrator, Amanda Ronconi, really brings to life Jane and all the other characters. I am so glad I picked these up in the audio format because I feel like I might not have liked them as much reading them, especially since she really sells Jane’s snarkiness.
Also the Courtney’s in this story were like a horror story just waiting to happen. I was surprised by how long Jane put up with them. She was way nicer than she should have been.
