    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    Story

    12 clues is the latest of the Lady Georgiana books and is right on the money. The Christmas theme works really well with the crime and the descriptions of the celebrations made me want to eat the whole time.

    Rhys Bowen likes to both have a contained story while moving the overall story along which she's done here. Things might be looking up at last for Georgie - or are they? I was glad she didn't shoe-horn the entire cast into the story. The reason for the cast in play to be there were plausible. Any more would not have worked.

    Then there's the audio verion. I love Katherine Kellgren, she never disappoints. Every accent and character is pitch perfect. This is a performance not a reading. I feel like these are friends of mine about to walk around the corner and whisk me off to do something fun or maybe find a body.

    This is an excellent addition to series. I cannot wait to find out what happens next.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    What made the experience of listening to Driving Mr. Dead the most enjoyable?

    To me Molly Harper sounds like Amanda Ronconi. I think should I ever meet her I won't believe it's her because she won't sound how I imagine. Amanda and Molly are the perfect Author/Narrator combo. The style, the wit, the snappy comebacks and Molly's own special brand of humour. These are books I go back to again and again.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Everything. Amanda is the perfect narrator for these books. It's a performance she has down to an art form.
