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.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
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.
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.
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.
Funny, different, enjoyable
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!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I enjoyed this fun story. It was well narrated and had a little mild sex spice added in. All in all an enjoyable listen. :)
I liked the relationship and banter between Daisy and the cop.
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.
Yes, narrator portrayed characters far better than print did.
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.
