Publisher's Summary

What would make the perfect man?

That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....

Turning to her neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, for help, Jaine must unmask a killer to save her friends - and herself. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival - as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

©2001 Linda Howard (P)2012 Simon & Schuster

"Sexy fun....A frolicsome mystery...Jaine Bright lives up to her name: she's as bright - and explosive - as a firecracker." (People)

"There is nothing quite like a sexy and suspenseful story by the amazing Linda Howard! The sparring relationship between Sam and Jaine is a delight. Mr. Perfect is funny, exciting, gripping, and sensuous - in fact it ranks as one of her all-time best!" (Romantic Times)

    Story
    "Fun listen with mild eye rolls"

    Mild Spoilers- first off I really don't understand why no one uses their cellphones or has them..? And why you'd agreed to get married after knowing someone a week. Also I can't believe there is a world where 4 women come up with a list of a few very basic/text book characteristics of their idea of a perfect man and receive national attention for it. Even if it's a slow news week! Other than that I really enjoyed the Jane character, quite dynamic. And the chemistry between her and Sam. I do wish their flirting would have gone on a little longer. The narrator really didn't have enough distinction in her voice imho. But it was a fun listen with some interesting storytelling.

    "Mr Perfect is ALMOST perfect"

    Witty dialogue, great characters and an interesting story told by a great narrator. Not overly sexual but definitely not PG

    "I did enjoy the overall story..."
    Any additional comments?

    liked this story...it was funny and smart. The only thing that I think didn't hold any strength was the content of the plot. I am trying to figure out a way of saying this without giving anything away :)
    Directly from the synopsis: As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation

    What they actually did and the reaction and publicity they received just wouldn't happen. I really liked how the author played the instant sensationalism into the story and how it created a chain of events, but honestly, I think that the author could have written a better catalyst than a "perfect man list"...

    "Yuck"

    Way too much sex and it really doesn't go in a crime novel .... Very off putting and the mystery is dull and predictable too!

    "Very good"

    It was a perfect blend in of comedy and crime, mot sure if that was intended but the book was brilliantly put together with style. The narrator was good, but I think a male narrator to do the male would have been better, but she did a good job.

    "love her!"

    I've read this book many times, first time listening. Some of the choices for voice are weird, but emotion/inflection was good.

    "Snappy dialogue"

    The narrator handled the snappy dialogue between characters so well she had me laughing out loud. The story moved along at a quick pace and was engaging.
