    Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she's boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she's got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn't been on a date in years. She's never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her 34th birthday, she begins transforming herself into a manhunting party girl. But one night she sees something she shouldn't - and suddenly she becomes the target of a killer.

    I love Linda Howard, and have this book in paper, but needed a copy to take with, and this one is it! Linda Howard is an author you can buy without knowing anything about the story. She never disappoints, and even though this is an abridged version and I miss a couple parts from the original, the rest is so good it's worth it! The narrator is FABULOUS, and I'm looking for any other books she's read. She's wonderful here, laugh out loud funny, and her voice is like an instrument she definitely knows how to play. If they can get her and do Open Season again unabridged, I'll buy that one too!

    Lucy Savage is not having a good week. Her cheating husband, Bradley, lobbed the final insult when he stood her up in divorce court. A dye job gone wrong has left her hair green. And someone is trying to kill her. To top it off, sexy cop Zack Warren is certain that the very same man Lucy is trying to wash right out of her hair is the same Bradley he wants to arrest for embezzlement. When someone shoots at her and then her car blows up, Zack decides she needs 24-hour police protection.

    I loved the paper book, have lost count of the number of times I've read it and it still makes me laugh, but this narrator drove me nuts. She was not a good match for Lucy. If this book could be re-recorded by someone else, (and I have a list I'd prefer) I'd buy it again and give it another try, but I can't even finish this version.
