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?

    "Too Short!"

    Absolutely wonderful story! Over way too soon. Amanda Ronconi definitely has an understanding and feel for Molly Harper's writing style.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Not Molly Harper's Best"
    What disappointed you about Driving Mr. Dead?

    Despite Molly Harper's enjoyable style of writing, this particular book is poorly crafted. The characters were formulaic, poorly drawn and inconsistent in a way that detracts from the story. This is the weakest Molly Harper book I've listened to and I was really disappointed in the non-plot and weak characterizations. The weaknesses were enough so I'd stop really listening to her often-enjoyable prose style and think instead about those problems instead. Since one is already suspending disbelief to listen to a vampire story, it made it hard to get into the book. This felt like a writing group exercise that shouldn't have made it to publication (or that I shouldn't have parted with a credit to hear).


    Has Driving Mr. Dead turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I'll be more careful about my next Molly Harper choice.


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

    She was OK and lively with the material she had. You could characters apart.


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

    Irritation. Molly Harper can and has done a lot better. This story felt like something she was churning out to meet a deadline, not something crafted. Some of her delightful delivery and humor comes through but the effect is greatly diminished by the poor crafting of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I've heartily enjoyed several of Molly Harper's books and hope readers will try those first. The nicest thing I can say is don't judge all of her work by this one.

    "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.

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

    The pink Boobs on the hood of the car was hilarious!!!!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was all good....really good!


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

    Slapstick supernatural comedy that will have you laughing from scene 1!

    "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.
