Overview

“Linda Howard is a superbly original storyteller.”
–Iris Johansen

Blair Mallory has already survived one murder attempt. Now, while planning her wedding and dealing with holiday-season madness, Blair once again dodges a bullet. Or more precisely, a Buick. And though the driver’s identity remains a mystery, his or her murderous intentions are all too clear.

Or are they? After all, Blair’s homicidal ex-husband and his partner in crime/wife are safely behind bars. And even Wyatt Bloodsworth, her police detective groom-to-be, isn’t inclined to believe she’s being targeted again. All of which makes Blair wonder if her close call was simply a mishap. But the wondering stops when she narrowly cheats death again in another seemingly innocent accident. Two strikes is all it takes to convince Blair that she’s back in someone’s crosshairs. And the only thing more frightening is that Wyatt still doubts her. That means this time, no one will be watching Blair’s back when she sets out to get the drop on her would-be killer–before whoever it is finally drops her.

    LOVE BLAIR AND WYATT

    I just have to say the 2 books w/ Blair and Wyatt are the best I have ever read. If you don't like these all I can say is you must not have a very good sense of humor. I hope Ms. Howard continues the series.

    Great Read!

    Some of the other fans remark on how poorly written 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' is, but neglect to realize that this novel is a different kind of story than Howard's other works like 'Killing Time,' or 'Now You See Her.' Funny, cute, and adorable characters that are an absolute joy to read are all too rare. To the future reader, I would disregard the negative comments, and highly recommend this novel.

    Highly Recommend

    I have enjoyed this book and the first book of the series "To Die For". I have read them both several times. Each book can and does stand on its own, but together they are unbeatable.

    Loved these books!

    I loved both books of this series. The characters are so funny, especially Blair! I really hope she writes more books about this family, maybe Blair's sisters?

    Drop Dead Gorgeous

    Very, very boring. I found myself skipping ahead to see if there was anything of value to read. I was so sick and tired of reading about Blairs thoughts. Her thoughts were so DUMB it was very annoying. This author can write really great books, to bad this was not one of them.

    fast, funny, some suspense to boot

    If you liked To Die For, you'll enjoy this sequel. I don't agree with the negative comments. Blair is a trip, and Wyatt is her perfect match. She's high maintenance alright, and he's more that up for the task. Even when she's complaining - she never claims or acts like she doesn't adore him and that's refreshing. Some heroines take that act too far. The dialog is funny, the plot keeps the pages turning, and the ending is very good. I'd like to see more books with these characters - especially Blair's sisters. Don't miss this.

    A Send Up of Romance Novels

    Very different from Linda Howard's other books but I loved it. A send up of romance novels it features a heroine who seems to be the stereotypical cheerleader grown up. However, there is more to her than than an empty headed blonde. She is high maintenance but worth it. The only disappointment is the identity of the murder. The book is hysterical. An easy read and a lttle fluffy but well worth it.

    Very, very funny

    This book is hysterical. I have never laughed out loud with a book so much in my life! A decent mystery, but the dialogue was even better -- laugh out loud funny.

    Excellent

    I loved To Die For and was really excited that Linda Howard wroted a
    second book with these same characters. The only thing that could have
    been better is if something could have happened to make Wyatt a little more worried. Overall it was a definite page turner.

    OK sequel

    It's a keeper, but I was somewhat disappointed. 'To Die For' was outstanding and original. This sequel assumed that the reader knew too much about the characters and their backgrounds. Blair's narrative was inconsistant, ranging from laugh-out-loud hysterical to ho-hum. I liked the Sally/Jazz sub-plot, as it added another dimension to the somewhat predictable stalker plot.

    TORTUREOUS READ

    I love linda howard's earlier books, but her last few have been highly disappointing. Her blair character at times could be funny and refreshing, for the most part she's just comes across as a whiny bimbo. I finish the book because i thought it would get better and because its a linda howard book, however i found myself skipping lines and just glancing at the words to an anti climatic ending. The next time howard writes a book, i'll get it from the library and not waste my money

    Drop Dead Gorgeous

    If you've read Ms. Howard's earlier books like, Now You See Her, you will be stunned at how poorly this book is written. It was so boring and predictable, that I put it down several times before I finally finished it. I guess this is why I didn't recall the previous book, To Die For---it wasn't that memorable, either.

    What a dissapointment!

    I am an avid Linda Howard fan, but she seems to be losing her touch. This book was poorly written, with a by the formula plot line, very little suspense, and a poor romantic plotline. I have only a limited amount of money to spend on books and have ALWAYS bought whatever this author published, but I will not do so in the future.

    Nightmare Rarity chapter 15

    Spike finally reached the capital of Equestria. Climbing up the final feet of the mountain, he reached the castle. Slipping past the guards, he silently walked through the hallways. All was silent. Then he heard a voice." Sister, do you know of anyone who would know a cure?" It was Celestia! He followed the sound of her and Lunas voice until he came to a lab door. What if they were disecting her? Was she alive? Or was it too late? <p> meanwhile... <p> Rarity struggled against the Paralyzation spell. Celestia and Luna kept talking about her. She still had ears, you know! Suddenly, none other than Spike busts in." Nooo!" He yelled, leaping in front of her. Celestia laughed, making Spike jump. The table Nightmare Rarity was lying on toppled over...

    Fun

    I love it when I can read another book about someone as funny as Blair. You can't help but love her and Wyatt. I have become a real Linda Howard fan.

    The funniest book you will ever read!

    I am Not a fan of book written in "I" form, but this book changed my mind! I read this book first not knowing at the time it was the second in the series of two. I almost wet my pant it was so funny and b/c I didn't want to put it down long enough to go to the bathroom. I don't want to write about the book story line b/c really it take a backseat to the fights between Blair and Wyatt. A must read for anyone who love to laugh and wants some ideas for the war between sexes.
