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?

I like this world!

This was actually my second visit to Half Moon Hollow, and it was a fun one. These books don't take themselves too seriously; they're simply light, easy reads and that's fine by me. I enjoyed the characters and the setting and will probably buy another Half Moon Hollow book and/or others by Molly Harper at some point in the future (when there's a good Audible sale).

Amanda Ronconi did a good job narrating, bringing just the right tone to the story.

Entertaining

I would definitly try another book from both Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi. The book is a joy and Amandas narrative is wonderful.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene at the motel when our odd couple is attacked by rednecks.

Could you see Driving Mr. Dead being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Would love to see Stellan Skarsgård and Cameron Diaz in the leads if this was made into a movie :)

Laugh out loud funny... I loved it!

Where does Driving Mr. Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 10.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think it would be Miranda. She's hilarious and only gets into trouble every other minute or so.

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

She did justice to the hilarity of the situations and I love the way she can pull off a rant!

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

It made me laugh out loud more than a few times and I loved the chemistry between the two main characters.

Any additional comments?

This is a must read. I've read all of the other Jane Jameson books and they've all made me laugh out loud. This one takes it over the top with the hilarious mishaps!

Disastrously Funny

If you could sum up Driving Mr. Dead in three words, what would they be?

Comical, Witty, Strange!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Collin Sutherland was my favorite character - When he began to change and morph You could clearly see that he was not persnickety or stuffy.

Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've only listened to Amanda Ronconi's perform books written by Molly Harper. The accent and emotions she puts into her performance does the book justice. I was not quite happy with the voice of a character from a prior book; you will likely guess which one I am talking about.

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

A charming roadtrip full of disaster!

Any additional comments?

Molly Harper does a great job bringing a modern feel to the ancient vampires. The way she brings the night time characters together with the daytime characters is great. This story is full of calamity and adventure.

Excellent to listen to while driving

Where does Driving Mr. Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is funny and entertaining, so it rates right around the middle. Its excellent to listen to on my long commute, because no matter how bad traffic is, Miranda is always having a worse day, and her good-naturedness about what a mess her life is generally makes you feel better.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Miranda. She's so cheerfully accepting of what a train wreck her life is, that it just makes you like her all the more.

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

I really like Amanda's readings - it makes me feel like I'm listening to a friend tell me about her day.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Its all fun and games until the vampire drives, and then its just funny.
