Dusty Pages Review: Driving Mr. Dead

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?

The next installment int he Half Moon Hollow Series, Miranda has a tendency towards bad luck and is desperate to make her new job, as a transporter for Beeline work. Collin, her vampire passenger, is a reclusive snob with a 15 page list of requirements for his transportation that makes her head spin. But together these two are darn right hilarious. I was grinning like a mad fool the entire time I was reading and freaking out family members by suddenly bursting into manic laughter.

Their adventures trying to get from point A to point B are so comic and tragic they could almost happen in real life. Add to that the growing attraction they have to each other and Miranda's uncanny ability to knock Collin's "gift" for a loop, its a fun, fast paced story that will leave you wanting more. I especially love when you finally get to see the prize piece he is personally couriering to Ophelia Lambert (Head of the Half Moon Hollow Council for the Equal Treatment of the Undead) and the way Miranda finally decides to deal with her Ex-Fiance and his "platonic" friendship with the girl next door.

I give it
