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.

    Great story with great narration. It was romantic suspenseful and funny.
    Very authentic southern charm.

    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!

    "Fabulous"

    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.

    "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.

    It was a cute story, but predictable. The narrator did a great job with the voices and accent.

    "Good Romantic Suspense"

    This was a re-read for me and the second time around I still enjoyed it. The best part of the story was the romance. Linda Howard really knows how to write a believable "I can't stand you" to "I love you" romance. I liked the main characters a lot, but Daisy was so naive, it got to be ridiculous. Still a good listen, though not my favorite Linda Howard book.

    "Great story and great narration"

    I already like Linda Howard, but with this book, there are some down right LOL moments (literally)--wait til the condom box scene. Hee! Yes, there is the romance aspect, but it's also a thriller and suspense. It will keep you on your toes and you'll fall in love with the main characters (including the main woman's aunt and mom). You won't regret getting this book. I listened to it on audio (I like audiobooks while I run or do weights) and the narrator is wonderful. You won't regret giving this book a chance. If you like this one, check out her Medina series.

    I guess I can also relate since I grew up in a small town. You'll love Daisy, Jack, Ev, aunt Jo, Todd, etc.
