RT Rating

After agreeing to marry to Lt. Wyatt Bloodsworth in just one month, Blair Mallory finds herself scrambling to pull together an acceptable wedding. One night, while on the dress hunt, she gets seriously banged up when she's nearly run down by a hit-and-run driver.

Previously, Blair was nearly murdered, so Wyatt is determined to find the culprit. Although he assumes it was an isolated case of road rage, Blair isn't so sure -- she suspects she's being stalked.

Still, the wedding plans must proceed, and Blair will risk life and limb for the cause. And besides, how likely is it that someone else wants to kill her?

Picking up right where To Die For left off, romantic-suspense master Howard initiates more side-splitting adventures for that trouble magnet Blair Mallory.

Told in the first person, this novel's repartee and sexy humor ricochet throughout. Howard keeps the pace lively and the amusement factor high. Since Blair and her fiance, police Lt. Wyatt Bloodsworth, are used to getting their own way, tactical maneuvering becomes an art form. This is Howard at her funniest and best! (Ballantine, Dec., 348 pp., $7.99)

Drop Dead Gorgeous - Linda Howard

Submitted by Robin in PA on September 6, 2010 - 3:05pm.

Wyatt Bloodsworth has given his fiancee, Blair Mallory, 30 days to plan their wedding, or they are flying to Vegas. While shopping for her wedding dress, Blair is nearly run down in the mall parking lot and furious that no one seems to notice her lying on the ground until she has already called for help. Soon after getting out of the hospital, Blair notices a white Chevy following her. When she tells Wyatt, he blows it off as it being her overactive imagination. This make narcissistic Blair's blood boil and she starts writing up a list of his transgressions. When yet another attack is made on her life, causing her condo to go up in flames, Wyatt thinks she might have a point after all. But is it too late?

This is the sequel to "To Die For" and written in first person. Fun, light-hearted suspense. Highly recommend. My rating: 5 Stars.
