Title: Open Season
Author: Linda Howard
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 and wonders how it is that she still lives with her widowed mom and spinster aunt while her friends have all gotten married and started families, she decides it’s time to get a life–and a sex life. And as far as she can tell, good girls don’t attract nearly as many men as bad ones.
Can a lifelong good girl turn bad?
No, not exactly. But they 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, forever. With a new lease on her own place, she’s found a new lease on life–and 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.
Seemlessly blending heart-pounding romance and breathless intrigue, Linda Howard has once more proven herself a masterful storyteller, writing this stylish and provocative novel that absolutely defies readers to put it down.
Book #27 was Open Season, by Linda Howard.
It must be a week of firsts! This is the first Linda Howard book I’ve read. It was alright — kinda corny, but in a somewhat cute way. It was more sex than mystery, I think. I’d probably pick up another of her books if I found it on the cheap, but I don’t think I’d search one out. Definitely a quick-beach-read type book.
