Publisher's Summary

Blair Mallory, last seen in To Die For, has already survived one murder attempt. Now, while planning her wedding and dealing with holiday-season madness, Blair once again dodges a bullet. Or, more precisely, a Buick. And, though the driver's identity remains a mystery, his or her murderous intentions are all too clear.

Or are they? After all, Blair's homicidal ex-husband and his partner-in-crime/wife are safely behind bars. And even Wyatt Bloodsworth, Blair's police detective groom-to-be, isn't inclined to believe she's being targeted again. All of which makes Blair wonder if her close call was simply a mishap.

But the wondering stops when she narrowly cheats death again in another seemingly innocent accident. Two strikes is all it takes to convince Blair that she's back in someone's crosshairs. And the only thing more frightening is that Wyatt still doubts her. That means this time no one will be watching Blair's back when she sets out to get the drop on her would-be killer - before whoever it is finally drops her.

    "This narrator is great!"

    I am so glad they didn't use the same narrator for this book as they did for "To Die For". I still liked the characters and the story of this one as well, but the narration this time was excellent.

    "Oh Blair, You Crack ME Up!"
    Would you listen to Drop Dead Gorgeous again? Why?

    Yes! And I have listened to it several timeseach time was better than the last.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I just really love the banter with Blair and her man. She's so sassy and it makes Wyatt CRAZY CRAZY in love!


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    Not a huge fan of Joyce Bean, I thought she sounded too old but I guess after my umpteenth listen I just got used to it. The story out weighs the narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No crying in this book. Laughter, oh yeah. This book had me in the first five minuted doubled over. It was a whole fight about Blair being BLAIR BLOODSWORTH.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great follow up book from the first, 'TO DIE FOR'.

    Story
    "Nuttiest heroine."
    Would you listen to Drop Dead Gorgeous again? Why?

    I had read the book and it was even better with Ms Bean narrating. This is a comedy, light mystery and love story rolled into one. Written in first person so it is nutty Blair's convoluted mind telling the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Blair 's outlook on men and women's relationships. The hero is smitten and hangs onto his woman on this crazy ride.


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    She is the perfect voice for crazy Blair.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed non stop thru out the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Linda Howard has not written another first person book other than this two book series.. Wish there was a way to resurrect this heroine for another a amusing jaunt into her view of the world.

    "Laugh out loud"
    What made the experience of listening to Drop Dead Gorgeous the most enjoyable?

    Loved the narrator and I loved the adventures of Blair and Wyatt.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great sequel to To Die For. Great opportunity to see the next chapter of Blair and Wyatt. Would love it if Ms. Howard would do a sequel about Blair's sister the attorney. Would also love a prequel about Blair's mom.
    This was a funny romp and light hearted romance. Laughed out loud at various times during this book. Years ago I read the print version, loved that this is now in audio.


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    Good accents without being over the top. A narrator can make or ruin a book. Joyce Bean is skilled and does a good job with both men and women.

    "Entertaining"

    This is a very entertaining book. I've listened to it several times and enjoyed it every time. You need to read or listen to "To Die For" first because it's a continuous story.

    "Drop Dead Gorgeous "

    This is the 2nd time I've listened to the book. I Lol and pretty much kept a smile on my face . I've really enjoyed it . I kinda wish Ms Howard would do another book about Blair Malory. NO spoiler alerts from my review. This was a very good romantic suspense written book. Don't forget to read/listen to the first book of this series "To Die For". I've enjoyed listening to both narrators from each book.

    "Love the book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Drop Dead Gorgeous to be better than the print version?

    Audio


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I love audio and I'm very picky about the narration. Reviews for To Die For, people gave the narrator such bad reviews but she made Blair who she is. She is a southern, whiny, spoiled brat and Franette Liebow really made you feel that character. Fall in Love with that character. Then you listen to this book and wonder, Where is Blair!. I was really looking forward to this book then felt horribly disappointed when my favorite character was gone. I still love the story but after listening to To Die For, this book was almost boring. I would love to hear it rerecorded with the original Blair.
