Review: Molly Harper - Driving Mr. Dead

Driving Mr. Dead: Collin Sutherland and Miranda Puckett


Click here to order on Amazon $1.99: Molly Harper - Driving Mr. Dead

Miranda is a loose cannon, a force that defies even foresight. Anything that and everything that could happen to her does.  She is a wayward soul that is just trying to find her place in life.  After her last attempt of normalcy, she found herself with a broken engagement to a steady, very normal man. Not sure what next to do she takes a job as an undead driver for Beeline, Half-Moon Hollow's premiere vampire concierge service. Her charge is Collin Sutherland; he has to be the complete opposite of Miranda. He is fastidious with a document 16 pages long of rules that she must follow. Miranda has never been very good with rules. Miranda realizes quickly that this is going to be a tedious trip across the country. Collin has never met anyone quite like Miranda in all of the years of his existence. He needs everything to be a certain way but Miranda defies all logic. Collin realizes quickly that this road trip is going to try his patience like nothing else ever has. As the deadline to get Collin to Half-Moon hollow gets closer Collin and Miranda realize this road trip is really the road trip to hell, because everything that can go wrong does, but they may just realize that they are having the time of their lives…


I adore Molly Harper and her sense of humor. Anytime I reach for one of her books I know I am going to laugh, and not just a chuckle but a full blown laugh, sometimes laugh so hard you cry laugh. I could not put down this book; I just wanted to see what would happen next. Miranda’s antics cracked me up. She is a lot like Jane from Molly Harpers Jane Jameson series. Miranda was just an enjoyable character and you couldn’t help to see what she was going to do or say next. Collin didn’t have a chance against Miranda, his rules went nowhere with her. He tried so hard to maintain a distance but she broke down all of his barriers. It helped that being around Miranda he could let go; he didn’t need to be so uptight. She short circuited his gift, which has never happened before, but it allows him to for once relax and enjoy himself. Once he did relax you find yourself really enjoying Collin much more then you thought you would from the beginning. I was not disappointed in the slightest with this short. I'd say it’s a bit longer then a novella but shorter than a full length.
