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?

As Usual a Blast!

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.

More, please.

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

In our top 10.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

When they find themselves without a car and lost. I won't spoil it for anyone. Listen and hear for yourself.

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

Who knew being dead could be so life affirming?

Any additional comments?

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.

Cute Love Story

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.

Laugh out loud material,often inappropriate timing

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

Witty, hilarious, addictive

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

If you like the Jim Butcher Harry Dresden books you will love these. The wit, sarcasm and ease of listening is exceptional...for both authors.

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

Absolutely, I think I did, and immediately bought the rest of her books, and logged in on the 1st of August after seeing blogs that her new book would be out in August. And then cheered out loud when it was.

Any additional comments?

I paid attention to other comments about the vampire / werewolf likes / dislikes and after avoiding these books like the plague I tried Driving Mr Dead when it was on sale. Best thing I ever did. It is not about Vampires as such, they just happen to be the characters. It reflects families and life and love and all the idiotic ways we trip up ourselves as we complete this journey

Very Entertaining

This book is hilarious. Miranda gets into one zany mishap after another, most of which are not her fault. I like the way she handles her self actualization finally. I laughed as much in this book as I do when reading Janet Evanovich.
