Publisher's Summary

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! And she has to do it without letting her passenger—the most persnickety, stuffy, devastatingly handsome vamp she’s ever met—drive her crazy. As she and Collin find disaster on the roads, they also find an undeniable spark between them. Could Miranda have found the perfect job and the perfect guy for her?

    "Enjoyable and fun"
    Would you listen to Driving Mr. Dead again? Why?

    Yes, I like Molly Harper and her entertaining twist.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Driving Mr. Dead?

    The "car boobs" incident.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Probably not. My "internal voice" isn't as entertaining as Ananda Ronconi's.

    Story
    "Excellent to listen to while driving"
    Where does Driving Mr. Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is funny and entertaining, so it rates right around the middle. Its excellent to listen to on my long commute, because no matter how bad traffic is, Miranda is always having a worse day, and her good-naturedness about what a mess her life is generally makes you feel better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Miranda. She's so cheerfully accepting of what a train wreck her life is, that it just makes you like her all the more.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really like Amanda's readings - it makes me feel like I'm listening to a friend tell me about her day.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Its all fun and games until the vampire drives, and then its just funny.

    "Molly and Amanda will keep you in stitches..."
    Would you listen to Driving Mr. Dead again? Why?

    Absoluteness, and I already have. It was damned hilarious & fun. Pardon the pun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Driving Mr. Dead?

    This one scene is the height of hilarity, when Colin decides he can help drive, and while our Heroine is sleeping, Colin becomes hopelessly lost!!


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Impossible to choose. Amanda is sooo gifted!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It was supposed to be a simple job....or so Miranda thought. How much trouble could one stuffy vampire be??


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent. Please put more of Molly's books on sale. Tomorrow.

    Story
    "completely let down"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'd heard alot about Molly Harpers books and they always have good reviews but I just could not get into the story, I honestly tried reading up to about chapter six but it just wasn't for me, the reader however, was wonderful, the problem wasn't her it was the story.


    What could Molly Harper have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Been a bit more detailed and a little less sarcastic.


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

    yes she's a great reader.


    What character would you cut from Driving Mr. Dead?

    I didn't finish the book so I don't think I really have a good clear cut picture of each person in the story, but from what I did read, I'd have to say most likely, her ex.


    Any additional comments?

    Just because this title wasn't for me doesn't mean I wouldn't tell someone else to give it a try. If you enjoy vampires mixed with normal every day people in a story then you may just like it. The book just honestly didn't captavate me.

    Story
    "How fun is this?!"
    What made the experience of listening to Driving Mr. Dead the most enjoyable?

    In this book, we meet characters already near and dear to our hearts from the "Nice Girls" series. A few familiar encounters catch you off guard which is a good ear to ear grin since you feel like you're in on a secret. This story is another work of narrative art by Ronconi, like an old (beautiful) shoe that fits so comfortably while you listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I just loved waiting for the inevitable to happen to our heroine. Collin starts out as such a self-centered dork that one wonders how it will possbile for him to change meaningfully in such a short book. He is quite arrogant and not very likeable that it gets on the listener's nerves. So, Harper does a pretty good job leading us through his growth, if somewhat implausible.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Bat Mobile pink-boobed and all going over the ravine is hilarious and such a good tease to make us wonder, "what next for our two wayward travelers?" I would be remiss if I didn't mention the root cellar, especially the tears - quite moving.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely since it is a quick, funny listen.


    Any additional comments?

    More, more, more.....
