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.

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?

    "Terrific"

    This was hilarious. I laughed out loud several times listening to this, and that's a rare event. The author reminds me of Janet Evonivich in her self-deprechating ways and yet how she manages to get the job done.

    Our heroine is a walking disaster area. Everything seems to go wrong, yet she somehow manages to pull things together at the last minute in some strange, and really funny way. This lighthearted romp through an alternate universe in which vampires and were-beings are "out" and humanity is learning to live with them is a great listen.

    For anyone who needs some lighthearted listening, I recommend this.

    "Way too short, but oh so good"

    I love Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi. With this winning combination you can never go wrong. Very entertaining and light hearted but a little too short. Worth a credit but its perfect on sale. Don't pass this one up.

    "NOT WORTH A CREDIT"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I know there are so many Molly Harper fans out there. This was my first. I got the book because of the great reviews, and listened to all of it. Honestly, I wasn't that funny, I did NOT laugh out loud.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Well, the story was lighthearted, a funny read and I don't mind spending the 4.95 on it.


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

    The narrator has a great voice and does a really good job! I enjoyed her performance a lot!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope - I think I am vampired out - maybe I will join Team Jacob after all :)


    Any additional comments?

    Not sure if I will give another Molly Harper book another try.

    "Laugh out loud funny!"

    This was my first book by Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi, and I really enjoyed it. I needed a good laugh and I wasn't let down. Warning: I had to switch to music while walking my dog the other night, so my neighbors didn't wonder who the crazy person laughing hysterically in the dark was! I've since downloaded a couple of other books by the duo and they're great too.

    "Hilarious and Sexy!"

    This is the funniest book! I loved the part with Dick Chaney and the rest of the gang. I love it that all the people from all the books know each other in some way. It's like coming home. Very hilarious and sexy book! It's better if you read all the books, but it would still be good if you only read this one.

    "Laugh out loud, hilarious!!!"

    I love the Jane Jameson books on audible, and this one goes along with some of the same characters, in the same town. It's main characters are new, Miranda and Collin, but just as zany. Getting into one crazy situation, after another, they kept me laughing out loud. The narrator is the same as the Jane audios, and is superb. I wonder if, I were to read these books, if I would enjoy them as much. With her delivery, you can just picture her on a stage of a comedy club. It's a short novella, but so worth the listen, and looks to blend right in to the next book, as Iris, Miranda's employer, is the main character of that book. For a lighthearted listen, this one's a winner!

    Story
    "Slapstick comedy"
    What disappointed you about Driving Mr. Dead?

    I normally don’t rate the books I read, I’ve listen to about thirty books and rated one. If I agree with the rates/reviews of the other listener, why add more. When customers are being pointed in the right direction, another review agreeing with the others is not necessary.
    WARNING
    If you are not into slapstick comedy, Molly Harper’s book will be boring to you. I never felt the need to laugh, and I kept thinking when will this be over. The reviews were so great, I brought two books at the same time. These books are for the kind of person that thinks movies like, There's Something About Mary, Home Alone Series, Dumb & Dumber, National Lampoon's Vacation Series, and Blades of Glory are worth watching. I will never waste my time on any of those movies because I dislike slapstick comedy. To make it clear, I’m not saying Molly Harper’s books are bad, I’m just saying, “know your genre.” The review talk mostly about laughter, I never felt the need to laugh as I painfully listen to both books.

    "Nothing new here - move along"

    I was disappointed in the direction the story took - for me there were no surprises, and nothing really great about it.
    As dull as those Twilight books

    "Molly Harper - You've done it again!"
    What did you love best about Driving Mr. Dead?

    This book had me laughing from begining to end!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Miranda, that girl is funny, with her dry sense of humour, bad luck and adventureous spirit!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Boobs on the hood of the car for sure.


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

    YES!

    Story
    "Deliciously Dry Humour"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Driving Mr. Dead to be better than the print version?

    Amanda Ronconi's usual incomparable narration adds so much to the enjoyment of the story that it is without a doubt worth buying the audio book even if you have the print version already.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not only is there a great plot line but the dry wit (or general "snarkiness" as Miranda the heroine would say) makes listening to this book a serious pleasure. Miranda is an unlikely heroine with a somewhat chequered past and a magnet for disaster. The book is the story of the road trip from hell shared between a straight laced and normally very solitary ancient vampire passenger and irreverent sharp witted (and sharp mouthed) lady driver Miranda. Maybe there are just too many disasters to be credible but then this is a paranormal novel and credibility is hardly a requirement. Fans of the world of Half Moon Hollow will love it.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    From an unpromising start where Miranda arrives a day late to collect Colin her vampire passenger and finds herself standing on his polished wood floor dripping in a puddle of rain water the journey goes rapidly down hill for them but the amusement factor climbs for me.


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

    I smiled right through the book and laughed out loud in places.


    Any additional comments?

    If you read this book and love it then read the other Half Moon Hollow books and even better start at the beginning with the Jane Jamieson/Nice Girl books. After that you need to slip into the world of Naked Werewolves. Be warned, this delightful world is addictive and I find I cannot get enough. Last year Molly Harper published enough works to keep me happy. I can only hope that this satisfying level of output continues..

    "Funny and highly entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to Driving Mr. Dead the most enjoyable?

    I bought this on the strength of previous reviews as I wanted a bit of light relief from my usual diet of thrillers and serious stuff. On a gloriously sunny day I took my Kindle to the park, plugged in my earphones and laughed for many hours until the book was finished.

    The narration was excellent and the story of the hapless Miranda taking her passenger across country fairly zipped along. Some real laugh out loud moments. The characters were well written and the descriptions of the seedy motels and diners en route were very textured. The ending was a bit clunky, but wrapped everything up. Not my usual taste but a great way to spend the day. I will definitely buy another.

    "Great book!"

    I've listened to all of Molly Harpers books, (this one finishing them off) And I found this one to be hilarious! There is just the right amount of humour that makes you laugh out loud on more than one occasion. I loved how they learn about each other on their journey, and Miranda reminds me of myself! Overall i highly recommend this book, especially if you've loved any other Molly Harper books
