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?

The story was little and funny. It kept me laughing and wanted to listen to more.
The different situations the main character experienced.
The vehicle mutilation. That was really funny.
Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi have hit it again with Driving Mr. Dead. I loved the story, the characters and the situations the mismatched pair of characters got into. The writing is compelling and witty as usual and the delivery sublime.
In our top 10.
My daughters and I listened to this book together. I and my younger daughter choose Collin, and my older daughter chooses Miranda. Though the story is told from Miranda's pov and you get all the little insights of how her mind works and twists and wobbles, it is Colin's behaviour that gives truth to the story. All he can do is react and react he does. It may appear odd and sometimes even not a very nice reaction but his reactions are honest and remain in character.
When they find themselves without a car and lost. I won't spoil it for anyone. Listen and hear for yourself.
Who knew being dead could be so life affirming?
Give it a listen. The narrator comes over as quite comfortable with the asides and brain farts of the characters that you feel like you're hearing the story over a drink or coffee from a beloved if ditzy girlfriend. She invites you into the story; using the author's words to be sure; but keeps you there by her vocal creations of the characters.
Funny interesting entertaining the narrator made the story come alive,, would listen again. Enjoyed it so much I downloaded other books by Molly Harper. Would never of found this author in a book store. Thanks AUDIBLE love this way of enjoying a story.
Both major characters as they kept me listening.
Her story telling made me feel like I was in the car with them enjoying all the stops along the way including the seller at the farmers house.
I laughed out loud many times whilst listening
Can't wait to hear more of her narrating Mollys books.
A scintillating novel, witty dialogue, funny storyline and compelling characters. This is a first rate chapter in the Nice Girl Universe. Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator for Molly Harper's novels. She interprets the nuances and intentions of the author superbly. The narration adds to the pleasure of this novel.
Yes because it's funny and very entertaining
The accident prone main character
When she finally gave her finance what he had coming
Did not read the print version so I cant say, but I liked it quite a bit.
When they had to hitch hick to there final destination with another vamp.
I have listened to tow other performances by Amanda Ronconi and I would have to say that she is consistently good.
it's one that i would listen to multiple times. that makes it in the top bracket.
the sarcasm and banter between the main characters.
the part where the main character talks about the vampires about adam's apple. i'm laughing just thinking about it.
i like to listen to books while i clean. this one is a keeper, i laughed out loud several times. this book made me a fan of molly harper. really light and fun.
This was a pleasant love story with quirky characters. I enjoyed the telling, although I wouldn't recommend this novel if you are looking for something deep. Driving Mr. Dead is, as the title implies, a light hearted romance.
