    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!

    Story
    Would you listen to Driving Mr. Dead again? Why?

    As usual, Molly Harper incorporates so many pithy comments and observations in one line after another.. It takes a second listen to follow her bouncing words of satire and wit once they are set in motion..


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character, Miranda, has that perfect blend of pessimistic optimism. She looks forward to better times, but learns to cope with the disastrous detours along the way.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Amanda Ronconi is the best at potraying modern, intelligent, flawed and funny women. She has a great sense of timing, especially as characters interact and respond to each other's peculiarities.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book was simply hilarious. It made me laugh and cringe all at the same time. It leaves you waiting to find out what else could go wrong and still hoping that nothing does..


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is a sequel to this book. I would like to see how the main characters Miranda and Colin develop and how they interact wtih the other folks in Half Moon Hollow. I wish that there were a bit more tension between these two characters and more explanation of Colin's attraction to Miranda. The ending seemed to rush their relationship too much given their clear differences.

    How can a virgin seeking happily ever after with a hot pop star who has a penchant for threesomes win her fantasy man? Kimber Edgington desperately needs a plan to convince Jesse McCall, who's been her friend and secret crush since they spent a summer together as teenagers, that they are meant for each other. But all the tabloid stories about his sexual escapades make her feel oh so inadequate.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are into fantasy and can take a plot that departs from reality and cruises into ridiculous, then this is the book for you. The main character came off as a petulant teenager. This was just plain disturbing given her desire to learn about ménage.


    What could Shayla Black have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The plot was just plain dumb. It is hard to care about characters or respond to what they are doing if all them are acting like stupid people. Kimber, the main character sets out to learn about ménage while keeping her virginity for her rock star boyfriend. Too unrealistic!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lexi Maynard’s performances?

    I'm not sure. The voice used for the main character, Kimber, made her sound like a child which was just gross when she was talking about sex. The character might also have been a chipmunk which was equally gross. The least gross alternative was that the main character was a little person. That last alternative would have been fine, but probably not what she was aiming for.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book bored and disgusted me. It was way too implausible and the sex was so-so.


    Any additional comments?

    I have no idea why this book got so many positive reviews.
