Publisher's Summary

She's hunting for a mate and there's no more playing it safe.

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 and wonders how it is that she still lives with her widowed mom and spinster aunt while her friends have all gotten married and started families, she decides it's time to get a life - and a sex life. And as far as she can tell, good girls don't attract nearly as many men as bad ones.

One makeover later, Daisy has transformed herself into a party girl extraordinaire. She's dancing the night away at clubs, and laughing and flirting with men for the first time in, well, forever. With a new lease on her own place, it's open season for manhunting.

But on her way home late one night, Daisy sees something she's not supposed to see. Suddenly the target of a killer, she's forced to put her manhunt on hold. But the very moment she stops looking might be the moment she finds what she's wanted all along.

    Story
    "Classic Linda Howard"

    Open Season is a classic novel, Linda Howard at her best with romance, suspense, humor and a cute puppy. The hero Jack is a tough, experienced sheriff, yet kind and respectful to women. The heroine Daisy is smart, sassy and doesn't take crap from anyone, in spite of being a well-mannered town librarian in a small southern town.

    Such a pleasant change from too many recent "so-called erotic romances" that feature creepy alpha jerks who treat women like dirt and the stupid female wimps would allow themselves to be battered & abused. Thanks Linda!

    I like romance novels with a great story. A little racy is OK but no fowl language.

    Story
    "Boring, Boring, Boring."
    What would have made Open Season better?

    The first hour is a woman figuring our how to do a makeover. Slow and boring. Disgusting language. Poor character development. The story was 100% predictable.


    Has Open Season turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Deborah Hazlett’s performances?

    Not a chance. The main character is supposed to be a white woman who dyed her hair blonde but the voice sounds like a black woman. I was never able to picture the character correctly.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "Enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Open Season in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, different, enjoyable


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. My sister recommended it as "a book that will make you laugh" and it did. It wasn't rocket science, but I didn't want that. I especially enjoyed Daisy getting her groove on!

    I loved this book. Storyline great. Sexy but not overboard. I like books with cops and romance. This book is perfect mix.

    I enjoyed this fun story. It was well narrated and had a little mild sex spice added in. All in all an enjoyable listen. :)

    "Just OK"
    What did you love best about Open Season?

    I liked the relationship and banter between Daisy and the cop.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book but thought that it was kind of an anticlimactic ending. I found it interesting how she put a little bit in there about the Mayor's wife at the end.

    Story
    "Absolutely Love It!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Open Season to be better than the print version?

    Yes, narrator portrayed characters far better than print did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this over and over. When I can't find anything new that appeals to me I listen to this or "Mr. Perfect" or " Now You See Me." Linda Howard ha become 3rd in my top ten authors. This booked helped her secure the placement.
