Overview

To Die For (Blair Mallory Series #1) by Linda Howard, Franette Liebow

Blair Mallory lives the good life. She’s pretty, confident, and the owner of a thriving up-scale fitness center. But in the shadow of success, a troubled member of the club develops a strange fixation on Blair, imitating her style and dress. Matters take a darker turn when the look-alike is shot dead–and Blair witnesses the horror.

As the media speculates on the tawdry details of the homicide and pushes Blair into the harsh spotlight, she locks horns with police lieutenant Wyatt Bloodsworth. He wants to lead an investigation without interference, while Blair is determined to probe the dead woman’s life on her own. But when someone begins to menace Blair with mounting threats, Wyatt takes notice: Was this murder indeed a lethal case of mistaken identity–and was Blair the intended victim?

Business savvy club own Blair Mallory finds herself in trouble after witnessing a murder in her parking lot. The killer has no way of knowing that Blaire didn't see his face, and therefore she needs police protection. Having had an intense but short relationship with Blair years ago, when Lt. Wyatt Bloodworth hears that Blair's club is the crime scene of a murder he rushes to the scene to take over. After serious reflection on walking way from her once, Wyatt is game on. Blair? Not so much. Wyatt takes the challenge head on using their intense chemistry-that Blair scowls at throughout the book-to his advantage. It's testosterone verses estrogen, and there is no battle of the sexes like Blair Mallory and Wyatt Bloodsworth. Watching these two compromise, rebuild trust, and learn how to understand each other is the best part of this story. Blair is full of wit, charm, and was taught by her momma that when a man comes back, he does it crawling. Wyatt is masculine, determined, protective and sensitive when it counts. It's impossible not to love this couple, particularly Blair. She's pure, cheerleading fluff. An All-American girl with a no nonsense attitude, and confidence to kill for. A pink hammer? Of course, tools don't have to be ugly. A cheerleader? Hard work, dangerous, and can you say college scholarship? You simply cannot go wrong with this book. It's light. It's sexy. It's out right FUN. -Posey, Everybody Needs A Little Romance

I am currently buying another copy of this book because I wore out the original. I read through the reviews for grins, and I have to say I was amazed at the number of negatives. I have all of LH's books and while there are three I didn't care for or finish, this is not one of them. LH is one of the few authors out there who risks writing in different genre (contemporary, western, futuristic, paranormal, etc.). While her books can vary quite a bit from one novel to another, in style and character type, she remains a very good character writer. I think the negative reviewers could use some literary education and some perspective on why we pick up a book in the first place. I noticed that the biggest complaints were about the 'ditzy' female lead Blair and the first-person writing style. Blair is far from the typical blonde, she is one smart tough 'cookie'. The first person writing style was chosen for a reason and LH uses it very effectively. Without it as a vehicle of understanding, Blair would be a flat character. Much of Blair's personality comes out through the ruminating conversations she has with the reader, not by what she says or does. To understand her you have to put all the peices together. I personally found her to be a hoot. The inter-action between her and Lieutenant Bloodsworth is extremely entertaining. I love the way she gets around him and his attempts to circumspect her. After reading this book answer this question: What female wouldn't love to be Blair? An author's main goals are to involve the reader in the plot, to envoke a response to the characters, and to tell a good story. Otherwise why spend all that time and effort. LH has done an excellant job with this book even though the writing style is a stand alone for her. This story is extremely funny and entertaining. This is one of the first books I pick up when I need to laugh at myself or the world, and I can't wait for the sequel due out soon. I also recommend the following titles by LH: Now You See Her, Mr. Perfect, Kill and Tell, All the Queens Men, Kiss Me While I Sleep, Dream Man, Open Season. I also highly recommend Cry No More, but to be honest as the mother of a young daugther, I could only read this emotional book once.

I'm a huge Linda Howard fan and enjoyed this book; however, the suspense part of the plot is a little thin and because it's told in the first person, we don't really know the hero as well. A nice, easy read but I'm eagerly awaiting her next hardback.

I was surprised and dismayed when I saw that this book was written in first person. I usually hate books that use this narritive form but I gave the book a try because I usually love Linda Howard's books and trust me it was great! The chemistry between the main characters was great and I laughed several times out loud at some of the crazy dialouge between the two. The story line was kinda predictable but the characters more than made up for it. I would recommend this book to everyone!

I was very scared to read this book considering some of the bad reviews from other customers...but I love Romance book where it deals with some kind of detective work so I went ahead and bought it.....and am I glad I did....it was one of the most romantic books ever...the main couple is so cute and the banter between them as well as the chemistry is amazing...ok yes the main character is a little dumb at times...but the love story makes up for it....trust me and give it a chance. This was my first Howard book and won't be my last!!!

Very different from authors other books. Very entertaining. I'd like her to continue the series with pre-quel on Blairs mom and books on Blairs sisters. Do not like the voice of the audiobook reader for this book. Accent is fake, shrill and has the character of an older woman.

This chick is everything she says she is in the first chapter or more. You will love her or you will hate her. And she will will remind you of someone you actually know. I had to love her because I know someone un-apologetically just like her. And the guy is OK too.

This is the book that made me a Linda Howard fan and the first one I read by her.. There is a murder, a mistaken identity of the murder victim, a new chance with an old flame, and enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages. The dialogue between the main characters will sometimes have you laughing out loud, and this is one story you won't soon forget. Be sure and follow up with the sequel, "Drop Dead Gorgeous".

I read the negative reviews in wonder. And, yes, it's written in first person. But anything that can make you laugh out loud? That's entertainment! If you make it through this without laughing out loud, check your humor meter...you're about a quart low.

I could not read a book in first person before this book. I still have trouble with some first person books, but I loved this one! Well written and it has some humor which I look for in a book. I fell in love with the characters.

This is one of my favorite books. You need to read the sequel Drop Dead Gorgeous to get the full Blair story. I hope Linda Howard does more books because Blair's sisters need Stories of their own.
