No New Vampires under the Sun

Turns out that there's nothing new under the sun, especially in the world of vampires.  (Snicker!)  I allude to this in the review of Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors by Molly Harper today at AAR.

While this is a bumbling vampire story, it's definitely not the first one with an inept protagonist and her hunky, aristocratic fiance.  But as compared to the better-known vampire, Harper's Jane Jameson is less snarky and more even-keeled.

My favorite character in the book, however, is teen football hero and all around BMOC Jamie who thinks it's awesome to be turned into a vampire even though he misses his family and doesn't think it's fair that he can't participate in spots because he'd be really awesome on the field.  Harper wrote a real sweetie in Jamie.
