Oh yes!! Amanda jsut pins the characters as well as my own imagination!! She puts the attitude with the written 'snark'!!
I cant pick a favorite!! I can match each of them to someone I know... well, really close!!
There is the attitude of the writers imagination brought right through with just the right amount of attitude. She gets it on the button!!
Life, Love, and laugh your ass off!!
I just love Molly Harper and her writing real life. No endearing blah blah blah, just real life 'thats what I would have said' and Amanda is the perfect narrator for Molly's writing!! I love the way all of her books interact together. It feels like you get to know all of her friends and can seriously relate to just about all of them. Keep the books coming Molly!! LOVE THEM!!
It was a cute storyline and I like the narrator.
I liked the interactive between the couple
This is the first one I listened to.
I could have easily listened to the book in one sitting if that was possible.
A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
Yes. It is as funny and entertaining as any road-trip adventure ever written.

I love the way the common thread in the stories is the lovable rogue Dick Cheney. Maybe the Ex-VP didn't really have a heart transplant last weekend, but is instead joining the ranks of the undead in America?
First off, Molly Harper has a wicked sense of humour and Amanda Ronconi always does her books justice for me. I love to be able to listen to a book and have moments when I laugh out loud, which I did constantly with Driving Mr. Dead.
There were a couple. Spray painted breasts cracked me up big time because it came out of nowhere, wasn't expecting it. Meeting Dick Chaney was great because I love him in the Jane Jameson series.
I am a bit biased because I am a big fan of Molly Harper. I love her quick wit and strong female characters. Anyone who can make me laugh out loud has my undying loyatly!
I absolutely love the humor found throughout this book. Its sarcastic, and typically self directed which is something that generally works for me. So humor is definitely the best part of this book IMO.
I just really liked the flow of this story. It was a short story, and I appreciated the fact that it didn't feel like a full length book crammed into a smaller space. It was a short story (about 4.5 hours I think) and it was written like one. The flow was great and it really didn't feel rushed at all to me.
With Amanda Ronconi, the main character is always my favorite, particularly in Molly Harper's books, which are all written in the first person. I find that she does the heroine's voice so well, that it doesn't really bother me if the male voices aren't perfect.
This was a book that I DID listen to all in one sitting.
So if you are like me the suspense of waiting for Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson Book 4 is killing you. So I was thrilled to find that she has a spin off to hold me over until the much-anticipated release of Book 4, Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors, coming on February 28th. Please be sure to check back as I’m sure I’ll review it as soon as I get my hands on it!
In the mean time….Driving Mr. Dead is a wonderfully written story and adds two new fabulous characters to the wacky cast of Jane’s friends. Miranda Puckett is the daughter of Half Moon Hollow’s most prominent old money family but unlike her family she is not a lawyer nor is she a successful businesswomen. She has failed at every job she has ever had in fabulously tragic and hilarious ways. But she has picked up some random skills along the way and hopes that maybe, just maybe those skills will help her as she takes on her newest career – a long-distance vampire transporter. A job she took trying to get as far out of town as possible while she tries to decide if she wants to give her lying, cheating fiancé another chance.
Collin Sutherland is the most persnickety, stuffy, handsome vampire that Miranda has ever met and his 16-page transportation contract rider can’t help but rub her the wrong way. But as they set out on their National Lampoons worthy trip Miranda’s knack for trouble seems to find her and Collin must quickly learn that contingency plans are necessary. As their trip spins further out of control their need to work together, laugh together and find a way to get home only helps to ignite the undeniable spark between them. Their chemistry and the lessons learned along the way quickly have Collin rethinking his solitary life style and reveling in the chaotic fun that is Miranda!
In true Molly Harper fashion this story will have you laughing, crying and cheering all that the same time. There are appearances from some of our favorite Jane series characters that make for some really great scenes. Once again, I listened to this on Audible. Amanda Ronconi just does such a fabulous job that I always gravitate to her audible format over the print format. This book can easily be read as a stand alone and doesn't have to be read as part of the main series. It seems to fall in between book 3 and 4 of the Jane Series but it could be read really at any time and still make sense. However, the Jane Series is well worth the the time and one of my favorites series. If you are unfamiliar with Molly Harper please be sure and use our search bar on the left column to find my previous blog’s on her other books.

I really enjoyed that characters from Molly Harper's other books were mentioned and had bit parts. However, she left a few questions unanswered. The book is too short, both because I wanted more of the story! and because it felt like she left out some parts so she could include them in the next book of this series. Which I will be reading, as soon as it comes out.
Just like all of her other books, Molly Harper's view of the world makes me laugh at loud. She is very good at creating characters that I would like to meet. I hope she has a lot more stories to tell, as I'm looking forward to them!
And of course, Amanda Ronconi does an excellent job.
YES, I like the way it comes to life.
The way it ended
When is the next book?
It is not nearly as memorable as the others. Not a total waste of time, but it did not drive me for more like the other books.
Most interesting was their developing relationship and the main character's awareness of her boyfriend lying to her. Least interesting was the ending...it felt like the conclusion came to quick and didn't have enough impact to want more.
No favorite although I thought the male vampire character seemed a little feminine.
If it would not have ended so abruptlly.
