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.

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.

    Performance
    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.

    "I think you should know"

    I think you should know (prior to purchase) that you need to read/ listen to "To Die For" before starting this one (regardless of the fact that the "publisher's summary" is basically a synopsis including the ending of the first book). This installment is more or less the same book as the first one with some of the details switched. I have mixed feelings on this but because I really enjoyed the first one it did not bother me too much. What really irritated me is the switch in narrators. Ms. Bean does a fine job and I wouldn't have an issue with her except it was distractingly different from the way the first book was read by Franette Liebow. Except maybe that Ms. Bean over pronounced her h's, which is what most people who try to do a southern accent do, like saying "wuh-hut" instead of what but this is just a personal preference on my part. Ms. Liebow did such an amazing job in the previous book with the southern accent and making Blair, who could very easily be unlikable, seem like a person you would enjoy talking to. I hate it when narrators switch in the middle of a series. Especially with the outstanding job done by the previous narrator.

    Story
    "Lively, colorful, female personality"
    Would you listen to Drop Dead Gorgeous again? Why?

    Perhaps, not again but gratified the first time. Enjoyed the spirited lead female character, I commend her high maintenance clever communication techniques.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor.


    Which character – as performed by Joyce Bean – was your favorite?

    Blair


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not movie material


    Any additional comments?

    Noticed some thumbs down for this book, but I thought it fun as it reminded me of real high maintenance women.

    "Another delicious story!"

    I hesitated to listen to this one, since the hero and heroine already experienced a "happy ever after" in the previous book (To Die For). I'm glad I listened anyway. Ms. Howard worked plenty of relationship tension and romance into the story with the requisite hot sex scenes. It wasn't all predictable, and the performance was great.

    "Three tries and can't get through it"

    What a disaster and a total waste of money. Story is silly and narration is worst. No more sale books for me. Even on sale, with this book I didn't get what I paid for. Don't waste your time

    "Too superficial"

    I'm new to Linda Howard and have only read 6 or 7 of her books - which I have joyed. But this one was just too superficial. Perhaps if I read the predecessor? I doubt it. I gave it 45 minutes, and struggled through the last 40.

    "Boring"

    It is hard to believe Linda Howard wrote this substitute-for-anesthesia. If I listen to the whole thing, I'll be in a permanent vegetative state.
