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?

This was a funny story that takes place in the Jane Jameson world. You don't need to have read the Jane books but some of the characters make a quick appearance.
It made me laugh a lot, so I recommend you don't listen somewhere you can't burst out laughing.
My only complaint was it was a bit on the short side. : (
I don't read a lot of romance, supernatural or otherwise, but I loved Molly Harper's "Nice Girls" series. "Driving Mr. Dead" definitely has the same signature Molly Harper snarky humor and attitude, so I expected to like it. That being said, it took a while to get going. Seems like the male protagonist took so long to become likeable, I almost gave up on him.
Still worth a read or a listen, if only for the humor.
"VorKosigan" My World of Warcraft Girl.
Not much, performance was fine.
Sure, it was cute, I just don't enjoy the sexy stuff in books.
I bought this book based on the extremely high average review (4.4) and because I really enjoyed "How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf". Sadly, it doesn't measure up.
The female character's tendency toward hysteria was annoying. The story also felt underdeveloped, although this may have been because I have not read other "Half Moon Hollow" books by this author so I don't know the back story. In any case, it seemed thin and lacking in believable characters (or as much as characters can be believable in a vampire story). The heroine's accident prone personality was cute and funny but her relationship with all of the other players, particularly her mother and fiance, was trite and unconvincing.
In my opinion, this book is filler - an attempt by the author to milk her storyline for all it is worth.
I stumbled upon the first Jane Jameson book right when it first came out. I loved the crazy quirkiness of the character. The main character in Driving Mr. Dead is just as quirky and honestly even more enjoyable (in my opinion) than Jane's character. The situations she finds herself in are obviously not realistic, but seriously, if that is what you are looking for then this book is not for you.
I am excited that Ms. Harper appears to be expanding this series and introducing us to new characters and cannot wait to meet them.
The narrator's voice was a little annoying to me at first, but I eventually got used to her tone and still ended up enjoying the story and have even listened to this book several times when I am in the mood for a good laugh.
This book had the chance of being good. Unfortunately due to serious bad language and an awful sex scene it did not reach it's potential!
I've read everything Molly Harper has written. I don’t know where she comes up with all of these funny stories. The humor just keeps on a rolling. Are these people she has known in her life or does she draw ideas from old movies?
At first I did not like the book because of the Colin character. Talk about anal with no sense of humor… I liked Miranda the klutz! The truck driver scene turned me around. Then I got into the book. Before then I was stalling out.
This is not one of Molly’s best books but I did enjoy it. I'd bet money that this ends up another series judging from the ending and I will read the next one.
To me Molly Harper sounds like Amanda Ronconi. I think should I ever meet her I won't believe it's her because she won't sound how I imagine. Amanda and Molly are the perfect Author/Narrator combo. The style, the wit, the snappy comebacks and Molly's own special brand of humour. These are books I go back to again and again.
Everything. Amanda is the perfect narrator for these books. It's a performance she has down to an art form.
This was great and I would recommend it. It took me a few minutes at first but when I got use to it I was addicted.
I have listened to 3 of Molly Harpers book and they have all been awesome
The expressions you can tell be her voice what the characters is feeling
