This is the first book that Linda Howard writes in first person, similar to Janet Evanovich. This book was hilarious and extremely fun to read. You will be laughing out loud.

I love both the heroine Blair and the hero Wyatt. They make a well matched couple. They will make you laugh while their romance played out with a suspenseful story of someone trying to kill Blair. Supporting characters like the heroine's mom just add to the enjoyment of the story.

Loved, loved, loved this book! The male and female lead characters were great together. They were funny, bratty, clever and smart enough to recognize true love when they saw it! I can't wait to read the sequel Drop Dead Gorgeous.

This novel and its partner, "Drop Dead Gorgeous" are totally different than anything else by Linda Howard. You will love the spunky heroine, and she's hysterical. Since the story is told in first person, her personality and the way she faces life are right out there! The hero is masculine, sexy, and at a loss most of the time as to how to handle his headstrong girlfriend. And the suspense part of the story is good, too!

Blair Mallory lives the good life. She's pretty, confident, and the owner of a thriving upscale fitness center. But in the shadow of success, a troubled member of the club develops a strange fixation on her, imitating her style and dress. Matters take a darker turn when the look-alike is shot dead -- and Blair witnesses the horror.

This is definitely a good read. Aside from looks she is smart, and witty. And she is her own woman. While reading this book, I was trying to figure out who the killer was. I was almost right. This book is definitely a good read.

Don't eat or drink while reading this book or you might be in trouble. This is one of her very best books, the only thing better is the second book about Blair, Drop Dead Gorgeous. This is one book you can't put down, very fast paced and funny.

The first person perspective of this novel is new to Linda Howard, but quite well done and extremely enjoyable!

Blair (the protagonist) quickly becomes a likable and quirky friend. As an outdoorsy, non-shopper, I was not predisposed to liking her high-maintenance personality but Blair's independence and strength quickly won me over! Linda Howard has outdone herself with this character. This is the first of two (so far) in the Blair Mallory series and I for one hope there will be more! Wyatt is a great male lead. Howard seems to excel at creating flawed yet likable characters that have an unexpected depth. She challenges your perception of happily ever after, yet still delivers one.

Loved this book. Hilarious!! 4 Stars. Can't really relate to the main character. The reason for Wyatt ditching Blair after a few dates, and then realizing 2 years later that he can't live without her doesn't make much sense... especially after he gives her the reason he did it. Still a light, fun read.

Blair Mallory witnessed a murder. The victim was Nikki Goodwin, a woman who had begun dressing like Blair and even colored her hair the same shade. In fact, she could pass for Blair's double. Police Lt. Wyatt Bloodsworth rushes to the scene when he hears about the murder. He had dated Blair previously and feared she was the victim. The media puts Blair on the front page and told the public that she witnessed the murder. So, it's no surprise when the next gunshot Blair hears is directed at her. Nikki had been a case of mistaken identity. Now Wyatt and Blair must figure out who wants to kill her before they actually succeed.

Very funny light-hearted mystery romance. This book is written in the first-person, but don't let that stop you. Blair's list of Wyatt's transgressions are hilarious. My rating: 5 Stars.

Instant "keeper shelf" material! I loved it!

I've actually purchased the paperback of this book twice- I loaned the first copy out so many times that it eventually disappeared.

I don't usually care for Linda Howard because grim FBI thrillers aren't my favorite. This is not a grim FBI thriller- it is one of the funniest books I've ever read.

Blair Mallory owns and runs a gym called Great Bods. One day a very unpopular member's membership comes up for renewal. Since there were complaints, she is not allowed to renew, and throws a temper tantrum. When Blair leaves work that night, she sees the obnoxious client (who's been copying Blair's every last thing, from glistening body lotion, to hair color, to driving a white convertible) outside waiting for her. Someone shoots the copy cat, and the police then become involved. Problem is: Did the murderer kill the wrong woman? Did he mean to kill Blair?

Blair Mallory uses whatever she has available to her best advantage- so she'll happily play a blonde bimbo if that's what works with the police. However, she's very smart, practical, and doesn't take guff from anyone. I found it hilariously funny. I enjoyed it, and the sequel, "Drop Dead Gorgeous" very much indeed.

Cheers,

Constance

Wow! This is now my absolute #1 favorite book of all time! I laughed and laughed. I've loved Linda Howard's books for a while, love her writing style, but this one really did it for me. It's written in first person, which some people don't like to read. I think like Blair (although I'm nothing like her - go figure), so reading from her point of view was a treat. If you like suspense, humor, great writing and some hot scenes, you will like this book. If you liked Mr. Perfect and Open Season also by Howard, you will LOVE this book!

I bought the 2nd book in this series (Drop Dead Gorgeous) on a whim at a library book sale and totally LOVED it. I had to read the first one and it didn't disappoint.

I have read all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels and really enjoy them...I love a story that never ends and keeps you entertained through different story plots. I am so excited to have found another series that keeps on going....Linda Howard's Blair Mallory series is full of humor and romance and suspense all in one....This is not your typical steamy romance novel though and is written in first person which is very easy and fast to read and is different for me, but I liked the character telling her story and Wyatt is very sexy. I am very excited to read the next books. Definitely recommend!!!

While I really enjoyed this audio book I couldn't get past the voice of the narrator. She sounded more like an old lady with a bad southern accent than the blond haired southern belle she is supposed to be. All in all it was a geat and well written story.

BLAIR MALLORY IS A CHARACTER THAT WE WOULD ALL LOVE TO HAVE AS A FRIEND. SHE IS FUN AND A GREAT RIDE. HER CHARACTER IS COMPLEX AND THOUGHT PROVOKING. SHE LETS OUT A LITTLE TOO MUCH INTO A WOMAN'S THOUGHT PROCESS, WE DON'T WANT MEN TO UNDERSTAND US TOO MUCH, THAT WOULD TAKE ALL THE FUN OUT OF IT.

This book was not good enough to finish. From page one the main character, Blair Mallory, was annoying me beyond belief. Was this a grown woman or an adolescent talking?

I didn't like the "chatty" writing style or the flaky and juvenile heroine enough to spend 250 pages with her. It's pretty bad when you don't care whether someone kills her or not, right? LOL

Very disappointed in Linda Howard with this one. Can't recommend it. Instead, try ALL THE QUEEN'S MEN or NOW YOU SEE HER.

Very enjoyable book. Blair Malloy is the owner of the very successful gym, Great Bods. When leaving work one night, she witnesses a murder in her parking lot. The problem is that the victim was a "copy cat" and she copied Blair..her hair do, her clothes, even her car. So who was suppose to die that night?

This book also has some great laughs in it and the scenes between Blair and police Lt. Wyatt Bloodsworth are great!

Howard brings her usual high level of intelligence and flair to her latest tale of romantic suspense (after Kiss Me While I Sleep). Successful health club owner Blair Mallory is the only witness when a troublemaking member gets shot behind her North Carolina gym. Since the killer may not realize that Blair hasn't seen his face, she needs police protectionbut her difficulties only escalate when Lt. Wyatt Bloodworth, with whom she had a short but intense relationship several years earlier, is assigned to the case. Still smarting from Wyatt's unexplained rejection, Blair resists his macho self-confidence; Wyatt in turn is irritated by her refusal to follow orders, even as he succumbs to her feisty charm and potent sexuality. Their investigations promptly reveal a major suspect, but the attacks on Blair continue even after the alleged killer is apprehended. As they consider a new array of possible murderers, the pair (aided and abetted by their colorful families) conduct a spirited battle of the sexes. Blair's chirpy asides on everything from underwear to men will wear on readers by the middle of the book, when the plot's momentum stalls. Still, Blair's surface fluffiness and underlying savvy make her an engaging narrator, and the book's witty Southern "take" on womanhood will amuse readers in the region and beyond.

I have read this book a while ago and I loved it. Blair Mallory is hilarious. She is southern, feisty, and terribly high maintenance. Listening to the book is a real treat. The actress who does the reading has nailed the cute but petulant Blair. If I recall, the book was more detailed in the sex scenes but it does not take away from the story at all. Don't even think about listening to the CD version if you don't like sassy, whiney, charming, southern ladies with attitude. Blair is polarizing -- you either love her or hate her. I personally love her!

While I can usually stomach some of Howard's clueless leading ladies, Blair Mallory was not one of them. She constantly whined and threw tantrums when she didn't get her own way, and was stupid enough to fall for it every time Wyatt baited her. When he said, "You're a cheerleader. Someone must want you dead." I said out loud, "I know I do!" In fact, I was really hoping the assassin would take her, her obnoxious leading man, and her inane mother out.

This wasn't even an It's-so-bad-it's-good type of tale. It was just plain bad.

This is a book I originally bought in paperback. I found it very funny indeed, and very different from Linda Howard's competent FBI thrillers.

I loaned my copy out so often that I eventually lost track of it, so am delighted to get it in hardbound- which I shall not loan out.

The book is not only funny, but it's actually pretty wise. Basic premise is former cheerleader, Blair Mallory, ends up, after a sudden divorce, the owner of a gym called Great Bods. She has a run in with a customer who is not allowed to renew her membership due to multiple member complaints.

When the now ex-member waits outside the gym after closing, Blair is surprised to witness the ex-member's murder. The question is, since the ex-member copied everything about Blair down to hair color and skin lotion, who was the intended victim?

Enter Lt. Bloodsworth, the hot, hunky testosterone-poisoned detective, who is determined to get her.

What I particularly enjoyed was how she didn't hesitate to take advantage of the "dumb blonde" stereotype if it suited her purposes. She is smart, very funny, and while high-maintenance, has a *very* solid head on her shoulders.

You will either love or hate this book. I loved it.
