“This novella is packed full of southern charm and Ms. Harper’s fun writing style.”
~ Under the Covers

I read this out of order as this is meant to be the prequel to the series, but it was totally fine.  This novella is packed full of southern charm and Ms. Harper’s fun writing style.  For some reason, in contemporary romance it works for me.

SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK is a second chance love story about high school sweethearts.  Marianne didn’t want to get stuck in her small town after high school so she dumped Carl and went off to the big city to become a lawyer.  She wanted nothing to do with the family business and nothing to do with becoming like some of the other women her age.  Married, pregnant and stuck.  Now she’s back in town to visit her family and has to face the issues and emotions from before.

While this wasn’t a perfect story and Marianne got on my nerves a little bit, it was a sweet read and it delivered what I was looking for from this series.  I think it has quite a bit of family dynamics so it’s not all focused on the romance, which I think was great.  Probably the connection and the romance could’ve been better but it was nice.

I’m really excited for Frankie’s book now.  I’m so close to getting to it and I think she’ll be my favorite for sure.

About Molly Harper

When Molly Harper was eight years old, she set up a “writing office” in her parents’ living room, complete with an old manual typewriter and a toy phone. And she (very slowly) pecked out the story of her third-grade class taking a trip around the world and losing a kid in each city. She had a dark sense of humor even then.

When Molly was considerably older, she headed for Western Kentucky University, where she majored in print journalism. After graduation, she landed a job with The Paducah Sun and married her high school sweetheart, David, a local police officer. After six years at the newspaper, Molly took a more family-friendly secretarial position at a local church office.

A big fan of vampire movies and TV shows, she decided to write a vampire romance novel. Molly created Jane Jameson, a bit of an accidental loser. Jane is single, almost 30, and a librarian working in Half-Moon Hollow, Ky. She has become a permanent fixture on her Mama’s prayer list. And despite the fact that she’s pretty good at her job, she just got canned so her boss could replace her with someone who occasionally starts workplace fires. Jane drowns her sorrows at the local faux nostalgia-themed sports bar. On her way home, she’s mistaken for a deer and shot by a drunk hunter. And then she wakes up as a vampire. The three-book Jane Jameson series–which includes Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs,Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men and Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever—was released in 2009. A fourth and final installment, Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors, was released in 2012.

I was not a hundred percent into this one, but I do like the overall southern charm of it and the others I’ve read in the series.
