I love Linda Howard and have for years. While this book was a departure from her other books - it was written in first person and seemed much lighter - I really liked it, probably because of the change of pace compared to her other books. Blair and Wyatt are a scream - funny and fun. Yes, Blair is high maintenance, but, hey, she even admits that in the book. I liked the lightness of tone - even when serious, it was never too dark (and while I love dark books, this was a great change). If you want something that still has a mystery, romance, Howard's great sex scenes, and lots of fun, this book is a light, refreshing change of pace.
Oh my goodness! I thought this was going to be a syrupy romance story (by the cover pic), but this book made me laugh (out loud at times) from the very first paragraph to the last one. This book was hysterical! I consider this 'fluff' - that's what I label something that I can read and just have a fun quick read and not try to figure out what is what. Just some fun reading that will lift your spirits. She does get quite explicit with some of her descriptions, but it's not bad. Recommended!
I loved this book. Definitely a departure for Linda Howard. I tend to read only her older romances since suspense books aren't my usual taste. But this suspense book is the kind I like. A good mystery with not a lot of gory details about the actual crime. And FUNNY. This, and it's predecessor To Die For, are hilarious books. Wyatt and Blair are a great couple. Blair is refreshing and has a great attitude, despite her high maintenance. I loved her note writing in this book. Definitely recommend both books.
Blair reminds me of Janet Evonavich's characters. There is a wonderful combination of humor, romance and mystery. Anyone that is alittle spasdic will definetly appreciate the main characters thought pattern. Really enjoyed reading this little book
Okay this book was hilarious! Normally I am not one to read first person writings, but because it is a Linda Howard book I gave it a go and LOVED it! I would be absolutley exstatic if Howard desides to continue her series with Blair Mallory/Bloodsworth. Howards books normally have a bit more drama to them, but the comedic quality of this book is wonderful! Even in the process of being run down and escaping from a house fire, Blair is a delightfully light and air character that you just can't walk away from!
