I stumbled upon the first Jane Jameson book right when it first came out. I loved the crazy quirkiness of the character. The main character in Driving Mr. Dead is just as quirky and honestly even more enjoyable (in my opinion) than Jane's character. The situations she finds herself in are obviously not realistic, but seriously, if that is what you are looking for then this book is not for you.
I am excited that Ms. Harper appears to be expanding this series and introducing us to new characters and cannot wait to meet them.
The narrator's voice was a little annoying to me at first, but I eventually got used to her tone and still ended up enjoying the story and have even listened to this book several times when I am in the mood for a good laugh.
I both loved and hated this book.
I loved the male lead, Josh, in this book. He was handsome, kind, and a smart-alack. What I disliked about this book was the female lead. She was just so dense and so hurtful to Josh. She constantly refused to give Josh credit for being a decent guy for no apparent reason other than he dated a lot in his past. I just got to the point where I was muttering out loud about how stupid she was. The ending of the book also just seemed to drag out f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I really enjoyed all the other books in this series. I think if Maria had not been so dumb and self-absorbed, I would have enjoyed this book more.
I read this series when it first came out and enjoyed it then. Listening to the story (after having read it) really made the story come alive for me. I was worried about keeping up with all the characters in this book, but the narrator does an excellent job of making each character distinct. I have already purchased book 2 and plan to eventually listen to the whole series.
