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?

    "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.

    This whole series and spinoff series is so completely hilarious, I just can't even quantify it. Looking for some light, campy, vampire/shifter rom-com, this is the series for you! Love this whole world!

    "Love Molly harper! but not this story!"

    I picked up most books from Molly Harper or read by Amanda Ronconi. Sadly this is not one of the most entertaining. I hardly remember the story plot after i finished it!

    Would I re-listen to it? Not really, it havent let much impressions or parts I would want to listen to.

    Is it worth a credit? No, I would prefer to use my credits on Harper's other works!

    Story
    "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.

    "Great"

    One of Molly Harper's funniest stories. I love how everything that could go wrong does go wrong especially the car 'boobs'. Very little hot sex but this story really does not need it. It is well written & fast paced. My only complaint is the rubbish attempted English accent but it does not detract from the entertainment,

    Any additional comments?

    Fairly short and direct compared to a lot of Molly Harper's stories, and this one lacked any real threats to the character's lives, which made a change. Some characters from other stories are nicely woven in.

    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..

    "I want to move to half moon hollow!"
    What made the experience of listening to Driving Mr. Dead the most enjoyable?

    I read my 1st Molly Harper book when looking for a new series to read.... now she is one of my favourite go to authors. In this book properly introduces the accident magnet Miranda (briefly mentioned in other half moon books) & her control freak English vampire Colin as she transports him across country in time for a meeting he simply dare not miss.


    What other book might you compare Driving Mr. Dead to, and why?

    This book slots very nicely into the well established series Molly has developed around inhabitants of Half Moon Hollow.


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

    The narration by Amanda Ronconi is excellent. She is the perfect fit to bring these witty books to life- I have also taken to buying other books that she has narrated as I find her voice both pleasant & expressive. <br/>


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

    As with any of Molly's books & Amanda's narration, time just flies by.

    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.<br/><br/>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.

    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
