Seamlessly blending heart-pounding romance and breathless intrigue, New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard writes a masterful, stylish, and provocative suspense novel that absolutely defies readers to put it down.
Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she's boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she's got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn't been on a date in years. She's never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her thirty-fourth birthday, still living with her widowed mom and spinster aunt, she decides it's time to get a life.
But can a lifelong good girl turn bad? No, not exactly.
But she can pretend, right?
One makeover later, Daisy has transformed herself into a party girl extraordinaire. She's letting her hair down, dancing the night away at clubs, and laughing and flirting with men for the first time in, well, ever. With a new lease on her own place and her life, it's open season for man-hunting.
But on her way home late one night, Daisy sees something she's not supposed to see. Suddenly the target of a killer, she's forced to put her manhunt on hold. But the very moment she stops looking might be the moment she finds what she's wanted all along. Trouble is, before he can share her life, he might just have to save it.
Carole S. (USA: IN) (2009/03/20): This was the first book I have read by this author, and I was very impressed with it. Kind of knew from the start who would end up with who, but still, lots of twists and comedy that worked out in the end.
Ed (Singapore) (2011/08/19): The teasing that the hero had towards the heroine is something that should not be missed! It's very sweet, like a fluffy rock hard sweet. But the suspense part is not as good as the romance portion.
Still, I would recommend this for those seeking to have a fun read, never mind that this book was printed many years ago.
