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?

Molly Harper can't write fast enough for me!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

ABSOLUTLY!!! Molly Harper always brings snarky, sarcastic, witty fun to her books and I KNOW before I even plug it in that I am in for a side holding, laugh out loud good time. I learned early on to NEVER eat or drink while listening to Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi because there is a very good chance I would be snorting it out of my nose because I am laughing so hard.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I LOVE Miranda. She is a hoot. She tries so hard in life to make things work out for herself but always runs head first into trouble.

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

YES!! I love Amanda Ronconi, and not just for her work with Molly Harper but all the books she has narrated in the genres that I read. Also if I see Amanda has read for an author I have never read before, I will check out the authors work. Amanda's always great.

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

Yes I did. I had the good laugh I have been needing for a long time. Driving Mr. Dead will be on my MP3 for a while so I can have it on hand when I need to laugh.

Any additional comments?

I believe that the wrong author/narrator can make or break a book/series. Molly and Amanda ALWAYS make a great team. If Amanda wasn't reading for Molly, I think I would just buy the print and not the audio because no one would compare to Amanda Ronconi and I will buy (in one form or another) ANYTHING Molly Harper writes!

Molly Harper-lite beats 90% of everything else

At barely over 5 hours, Driving Mr. Dead is more of a morsel in comparison to the three-course meals offered in the Nice Girls Don’t and Naked Werewolf books, but it is still very well-written, hilarious, and satisfying. The best way I can describe the two main characters is that Mr. Dead could be Mr. Darcy with a better ass (or so I imagine), and Miranda's personality kind of reminds me of a post-Andrea Dick (from the NGD series). I listened to DMD mostly while driving and more than once I had to fake a cough so that my fellow motorists didn’t think I was a nut who spontaneously bursts into laughter.
I only have two wee complaints: 1) due to the book’s brevity the story was 'lite' on mystery, drama, and supporting characters. But hey, Molly Harper-lite still beats 90% of everything else in this genre. And 2) where’s the next Jane Jameson book?! I’m going to start an 'Occupy Molly Harper’s Front Lawn' movement if I don’t get some Gabriel Nightingale stat!

Oh and, as always, Ms. Ronconi is the perfect complement to Ms. Harper's characters.
