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.

"A thriller... with deftness and charm." (The Orlando Sentinel)
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book was the first book I read by Linda Howard and have since read almost everything that she has writen, I was glad to see it on Audible. This is a fun, and simple romance. One of her first where she was trying for a little suspense but didn't quite hit the mark. But fun in the romance section and defiently worth the listen. More favorites by Linda Howard are Mr. Perfect, Now you See Her, and Cover of Night.

When I started listening to this unabridged version, I thought I'd downloaded the wrong book. Then I realized that the abridged version didn't have the prologue, which is very dark. What a relief when the story went to Daisy. I enjoy all of Linda Howard's novels, and I'm glad to see that audible now has the unabridged versions of all her books that they carry. Thanks, audible!
This is a fun story to listen to. I enjoyed the whole thing. I would recommend this book to most everyone that enjoys Linda Howards books.
I believe there are 3 elements to a great romance audible book: good narration, believable plot, flawed characters and great dialogue!
The plot and romance had potential, Howard just did not pull it off. I felt like so much could have been done with the idea of a librarian turned sexy husband hunter but LH just did not take it there. I felt like Jack's character could have been developed more. The narration was ok, Jack's "yankee" accent was AWFUL!
It was very funny, as well as it kept my interest.
She did the voice with , each persons was different.
Very good book, one of Linds's best.
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.
One of my favorites from several years ago, but not one to miss. A soon to be spinster librarian decides to redo herself for a manhunt. Bumps into the difficult and dangerous world of singles going to bars and a tough sheriff. A lighter story than some of Howards' but keeps you interested.
The Humor and the two key charachters
She captures the southern inflections and styles of the characters.
This was the best story and narration! I highly recommend this book to any of her fans!
I liked both, but audio version I can listen to at night when I do not feel like reading a book and can also take with me in the car on trips to keep me entertained on boring drives.
I enjoyed the interaction between Daisy and the Chief and what would happen next in their encounters. Interesting how the main plot with the danger of drugs is woven through the storyline - ending a surprise which is always good.
Did not like her as well as a previous version on tape that I bought years ago. She did a good job but other reader was better with voice changes for different characters.
More laughter and anticipation for the next encounter between the main characters.
Daisy is a really great female character in this book and one so many women will be able to relate to in looks, attitude, and feelings.
