matter how many times I read it, I always laugh Daisy and Jack are such a kick Plus, an audiobook makes cabinet polishing go faster.This is one of Howard s best even though the make over fashion scenes went on too long Jack Russo, a former SWAT cop from NYC, is the new chief of police in Hillsboro, a small town in Alabama the author s home state Daisy Minor is a naive librarian, sweet 16x2 and never been kissed, finally deciding it s time to live a little Get a makeover, etc.Heartwarming, sexy, and suspenseful A total beach read Best of all funny Laughed out loud in several places Daisy is a trip The scene when she was buying condoms I loved watching her come into her own in the small busy body Southern town I loved her puppy dog, too, and even enjoyed her family Some reviewers question that Daisy is still almost a pure virgin at 34 years old, but I lived in a small town in Alabama for some years and had little trouble believing it.I loved LOVED Jack His bemused and delighted interactions with Daisy Lots of laughs between those two Loved him, so protective and passionate Hot sex scenes I gobbled up the puppy love scenes, too little fuzz butt the galloping golden retriever The mystery itself was only moderately intriguing Not terribly inspired, and everything fell into Jack s capable hands towards the end The crime sex trafficking of young girls and date rape drugs is a downer The backstory of a certain abused and alcoholic wife was depressing I did like finding out where how the top thug was shot Major Quibble I didn t care for the ending at all, when one of the villains knocks on a certain door What in tarnation was that all about What was Howard thinking No way Just wrong.This book reminds me of the Stephanie Plum series 4 STARSLoved it I love how

go and just let the story unfold ignoring some of the predictability.The two main characters were fantastic together Daisy Minor was a 34 year old Librarian who was about to find her inner tiger that would finally snag a guy of husband material She was done with being plain Jane and all about becoming the new and improved Daisy But best of all she was funny There were some scene s that had me laughing out loud Whenever she decided to go to the local drug store and buy a party pack box of condoms I couldn t stop laughing And there was a lot to love about Jack He was downright sweet He was the police chief so he was tough and burly too There is also something sexy about a guy who appeared to be enad with said Librarian from day one.The banter between Daisy and Jack was perfect There was always something swirling around Daisy which drove Jack batty but Daisy was determined to find herself a husband Jack found his nerves on edge every time he was around her And I mean this in a good way When something happens that puts Daisy in some danger Jack s protectiveness kicks in to gear There was some mystery and a bit of suspense but this is where I found things predictable It bugged me a bit but I was enjoying everything else about the story that in the end it didn t matter.This one gets thumbs up and I m looking forward to readingfrom Linda Howard Cute story, granted not very original but it still had a little of everything I very much enjoyed the banter between the 2 main characters.
