To Die For by Linda Howard


Hero: J.W. Bloodsworth
Heroine: Blair Mallory
Grade: B+

Date: 3/7/06

After a painful divorce, Blair Mallory thought her problems were over. She was dead wrong. With the settlement, she follows a dream and opens a 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, Blair crosses paths with police lieutenant C.W. Bloodsworth. Together they investigate the dead woman's family and social circle. But when someone begins to menace Blair with mounting threats, her blood run cold: Was this murder indeed a lethal case of mistaken identity - and was Blair the intended victim?

Okay, this book seriously rocked out IMO.

Blair cracked me the hell up with her snooty attitude, her inability to say NO to Wyatt and even her karate chop cartwheel at the end of the book was pretty tight (totally unbelievable, but tight nonetheless). She was a funny, sarcastic and just all around normal person. She was far from perfect and I think that's why I loved her character so much, because I could see her as one of my friends.

So the thing with Blair is, she got married young, married a guy who cheated on her with...HER SISTER! And she divorces his ass, she makes out like a bandit in the settlement and with the money she got from her lying, rat bastard ex husband, she opens up a 24 Hour Fitness type gym in her town. Things are looking up for her, when she gets this really annoying customer that everyone absolutely loathes.

The day she kicks her out of the gym is the day that she's murdered in the parking lot, with Blair as a witness, she didn't see who shot poor Nicole, but she was the one that called 911 and all that junk. The cops come over and things start to heat up.

Enter the hot and hunky Detective Hero, J.W. Bloodsworth.

Blair can't stand his ass because she dated him and he never called her back, just up and disappeared with not a word or anything, any girl would be annoyed with someone who didn't give you a reason they stopped seeing you.

It's a freaking riot to see these two bump heads throughout the book, Wyatt trying to keep Blair safe from the killer and from his lascivious attentions and Blair and her annoying lists she makes up for Wyatt's boss, the lists that are never completed and never turned over.

The chemistry between Blair and Wyatt is unmistakable and was enough to have me up until all hours of the night last night, rereading. It really is a great treat for all of us, ya'll should definitely check it out!
