Former cheerleader turned savvy businesswoman Blair Mallory has done quite well for herself as the owner of a successful fitness center. One night after closing, she thinks she's being confronted by a nutty ex-client but she is actually witnessing a murder.

Two years ago, police lieutenant Wyatt Bloodsworth briefly dated Blair before realizing how high maintenance she was. Although he bolted, this case is about to force them back into very close proximity. Blair is neither ready to forgive or forget, no matter how devastatingly sexy Wyatt is.

Their verbal sparring takes a brief hiatus when they realise that the killer may have really been gunning for Blair. What hates her enough to want her dead? Blair doesn't have a clue, but someone out there seems extremely determined.

Laugh-out-loud humor is back in suspense maestro Howard's sizzling new romantic thriller. Packed with witty repartee, sexy humor and loads of excitement, To Die For lives up to its title. (Jan., 378 pp., $7.99)

To Die For - Linda Howard

Submitted by Robin in PA on September 6, 2010 - 2:59pm.

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.
