Top Customer Reviews
(1) The title stinks and in no way reflects the content of the book.
(2) It is closer to "Mr. Perfect" than to the Mackenzie books (and it's light years away from "Cry No More").
(3) The first person point of view is hilarious because Blair is one of Howard's cutest and most amusing heroines.
(4) The readers who are lamenting the loss of the male POV are missing the point: this is not a typical romance: it is a comic-romance: think Tracy and Hepburn's classic comedies! Wyatt's POV wouldn't add anything to the comedy!
(5) It's a chick book! If you're looking for the alpha male, he's here, but the focus is on a flirty former cheerleader who is, in her own way, WOMAN! Hear her roar! So there.
(6) Buy the book, but put it aside until you're in a good mood and want some pure, frivolous FUN, and stop complaining because Linda--who can sometimes make you cry--this time makes you laugh out loud: She's a writer for all seasons. Appreciate her!
The police lieutenant, Jefferson "Wyatt" Bloodsworth, a man Blair once dated and to whom she is still very much attracted to, enters the picture. The media, of course, promptly put Blair on the front page and told the public that she witnessed the murder. NOT GOOD! Needless-to-say, 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.Read more ›
Let me say this again, I love LH but her last few books just have not been as good as her older works. To me they are just missing something. But To Die For is certainly going back in the right direction after the big disapointments I found her last two books to be. There were some parts that were truly hilarious but I had issues with the way that Wyatt dumped Blair 2 years ago so I had a hard time warming up to him and that detracted from the story for me. But after I've said all this I still think everyone will enjoy it. I have to say that I think the only reason I was somewhat unsatisfied at all with To Die For is because Linda Howard had me soooo spoiled by her other stuff that I keep waiting for another Shades of Twilight or After The Night or a hero like Zane or Chance MacKenzie.
After witnessing a murder at the gym she owns, Great Bods, Blair is drawn back into the life of police Lieutenant J.W. Bloodsworth, a man who dumped her two years ago after only three dates. She's still mad and isn't about to let him get the best of her.
But Wyatt knows that Blair is the woman for him. Though he once backed away from her, knowing she would be too high maintenance, when he hears about the murder at Great Bods, he's stunned and fearful that it could be the sassy Blair who was the victim. He's very relieved to find out that Blair is safe and sound, but now he knows he has to ensure that she stays that way. She was the only witness to the murder, thus it's more than likely that she might be the next victim.
Wyatt hustles her into his house where he can protect her, while she proceeds to drive him up the wall. Though they grow closer the more time they spend together, the case is going no where fast. There are no clues, no witnesses and it looks like that Blair might have been the intended victim in the first place. How will they solve this and keep Blair safe? Will Wyatt be able to prove that this time around he's going to stick?
To Die For is very reminiscent of Howard's story Mr. Perfect. There is lots of humor, lots of romance, and a good mystery. This book is written in the first person point of view however, so the only thoughts the reader gets are those of Blair. Despite this, Blair is a great character with lots of witty asides and plenty of sass to keep the novel rolling through its almost 400 pages.Read more ›
