Driving Mr. Dead | [Molly Harper]

Driving Mr. Dead

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!

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?

    "High Hopes Dashed"
    Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    Narrated well - would listen to Amanda Ronconi again.
    Skeptical about reading another book by Molly Harper.


    What was most disappointing about Molly Harper’s story?

    Shallow character development; eye-rolling ridiculous scenes.


    Did Amanda Ronconi do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Amanda's performance was entertaining; good character differentiation.


    Was Driving Mr. Dead worth the listening time?

    Only barely.


    Any additional comments?

    This was about the most disappointing book I've listened to in several years. Perhaps it's the inevitable comparison with the Twilight books, and this, to me, was quite inferior. The character development was very shallow. The story, overall, was simple and superficial; very lacking in depth. It was entertaining enough that I finished, but only just. The narration was very pleasant, and that helped.

    "Fun-easy-light read"

    OK, so this book was no masterpiece but it was an enjoyable light comedic read between some of the really intense novels I have been reading.
    Its short and sweet and as cheesy as the title suggest. But not a bad cheesy if you need a little comic relief or a no brain cell type read.

    "Disappointing considering all the great reviews"
    What disappointed you about Driving Mr. Dead?

    You know how when you were in elementary school how your teachers made you "outline the plot" of a story? Well this book had no rising action and certainly no plot climax. I just kept waiting and waiting for something to happen! I read a lot of Paranormal Romance, and this just felt like a watered-down romance novel with vampires thrown in.


    What was most disappointing about Molly Harper’s story?

    The whole thing was just so worn out. There are a million books out there featuring a snarky protaganist with an authority figure problem who attracts trouble like a magnet. The trouble she attracted was all perfectly mundane and boring- such as vandals drawing on the hood of her car, and a hotel clerk shredding the wrong credit card. I guess my expectations were too high.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator didn't do great male voices.


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

    Disappointment. I will be returning this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely don't waste a credit.

    "So funny, so well written, LOVED IT!"

    Thank you audible for having this gem on sale or I never would have bought it....driving mr. dead doesn't sound like a book that would interest me but I found myself laughing so hard I about had an accident, and the narrator was just perfect!

    So, Miranda finds herself a typical 20 something without a real plan or a goal in sight…her fiancé was actually cheating on her and her parents have her whole life mapped out, and she just needs time to think…what better way to escape than to sign up to drive a vampire cross country! This book is written in modern day, but in this world people know there are vampires. There is no mystical world to catch up on, it’s just that vampires live among us and sometimes they need human drivers who can drive during the day time.

    The words “bad day” don’t really cover the catastrophes that eventually ensue during this trip and I don’t want to mention any because having them all happen one after another was the utter charm of the story…and I could see myself reacting the same way as the main character…which made it priceless!

    Loved the story, wished there were another 10 hours of it, and have already downloaded other Molly Harper books because it’s been a while since I have laughed like that.

    "Classic Molly Harper"

    If you are already a fan of Molly Harper's audiobooks, Driving Mr. Dead will give you more of what you already love. This is yet another laugh out loud story that Ronconi has perfectly narrated. And since it takes place in Half Moon Hallow, many of the main characters from the previous books will make an appearance.

    If not, this is a great book to get to know her style. This classic Harper novel features a comical yet lovable female protagonists whose wisecracks will keep you laughing. It's that same humor that keeps the romance between Miranda and Collin from being the super-sugary/cheesy brand that is often the meat of romance novels.

    "Awesome! Best "Nice Girls" spin-off yet."
    If you could sum up Driving Mr. Dead in three words, what would they be?

    Witty, fast, fun


    Any additional comments?

    I am a huge fan of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi truly brings Ms. Harper's characters to life. Excellent!

    "Judging a Book By It's Cover"
    Would you listen to Driving Mr. Dead again? Why?

    This book is hillarious! The cover makes this book look cheesy...and it has it's moments, but the laughs and wit make up for it. Fun read.

    "Charming!"

    Heroine is an absolute delight and Amanda Ronconi reads her beautifully, She is witty and funny and someone whose exploits I wanted to hear. Hero wasn't nearly as riveting - not sure if it was the reading or the writing for him. Regardless - well worth purchasing.
