hot crafty goodness
I recommend listening to this in private...because you will laugh and snort out loud! Well performed by Amanda Ronconi, truly meshed with the voice of Miranda Puckett. The sincerity of Miranda 'Jinx' Puckett's tenacity in face of incredible missteps and mishaps juxtaposed nicely with the OCD to the extreme Vampire.
I loved the snappy voice of Miranda, her earthiness at the heart of her chaotic life, and how that heart melts the icey, anal-retentiveness of Colin, a true descendant of Mr. Darcy himself...eventually charmed by his less than perfect companion. Love the down to earth humor Molly Harper's characters all have. She truly gets the inner workings of "interesting" women everywhere.
I adored how Miranda summarized the whole disastrous trip to one of our favorite rogue vamps.
Laughed so hard I snorted...which is why I was listening to this at home.
I want this story developed into a full novel, more adventures with Miranda and Colin, it ended too quickly!
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
Driving Mr. Dead is my second Molly Harper novel--it is a light, cute, entertaining listen.
This type of book is not what I usually buy and listen to, but I really enjoyed a Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi audiobook previously, and decided to try another. Molly writes a very cute story, and Amanda does a great job narrating--the combo is perfect. I'm not sure I would be interested in these stories in any other format!
witty with a twist of sarcasm
when sparks fly for Colin and Miranda
I love the scene where they end up in the root cellar for refuge.
Yes i finished this book in less than 24 hours and i wish there was a second book about this troublesome couple
I like mostly fantasy - Robert Jordan, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, etc.
This book is pure entertainment! Short, funny, & the story wraps up by the end - my kind of book. I laughed out loud & couldn't stop. The main character is hired to drive a vampire cross country & that's where the mayham begins. The narrator adds to the slapstick comments & it works.
Too much of the two principle characters in this story. Little to no back story. Don't see the regulars from other stories in the group until the very end.
On the funny side.
Just the right amount of character to each voice.
Laughed out loud and got funny looks from people around me.
Will look for further installments.
I loved the female lead, she had such back luck it was comical.
She read well, but didn't have enough dynamics in her volume.
I laughed out loud multiple times, Molly Harper has a great sense of humor and infuses her characters with sarcasim and wit wonderfully!
I liked that it followed similar themes from Nice girls dont have fangs series.
the car disasters
laugh a lot
I love Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi. I have bought ever single one of her books and Ronconi always makes her stories entertaining. The lead character is sassy and with all the stuff that keeps happening to her, well, it makes your problems just seem so much smaller. The other thing I love about Harper is that her leads have flaws. They aren't perfect, they develop throughout the story, and they learn from their mistakes. They are also independent strong women that know when to just give into guilty pleasures. Fantastic books and great performance.
All of it, was funny and kept my attention.
She was always in trouble.
Great book, and really great author.
