Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper
On her way home that evening, after sobering up with generous lashings of black coffee, Jane's dilapidated station wagon dies. Jane starts the long walk home, stumbling and falling in the mud. A drunken hunter, also on his way home, sees Jane and mistakes her for a deer - and shoots her. Luckily for Jane, the charming, witty, handsome man who flirted with her at Shenanigan's has also followed her home. And extra luckily, he's a vampire willing to turn her.
What follows is a hilarious story about Jane and her new unlife. Though similar to the Sookie Stackhouse novels in premise (vamps are out and drinking synthetic blood, werewolves are not, etc.) this book is far more comedic. Don't look for drama in this book, but do be prepared to laugh-out-loud.
