Publisher's Summary

Blair Mallory lives the good life. She's pretty, confident, and the owner of a thriving upscale fitness center. But in the shadow of success, a troubled member of the club develops a strange fixation on her, imitating her style and dress. Matters take a darker turn when the look-alike is shot dead - and Blair witnesses the horror.

As the media speculate on the tawdry details of the homicide and push Blair into the harsh spotlight, she locks horns with police lieutenant Wyatt Bloodsworth - he wants to lead an investigation without interference, while she is determined to probe the dead woman's life on her own.

But when someone begins to menace Blair with mounting threats, Wyatt takes notice: Was this murder indeed a lethal case of mistaken identity - and was Blair the intended victim?

    "Loved the Story"

    I listened to the sequel first and loved the narrator. I'm not as enamored of the narrator for this story. She did a great job with the other characters but I had a hard time with the voice she chose for the main character. The narrator nailed the southern accent but her voice had a slight quiver I associate with older women, therefore I had a hard time picturing the heroine as young and vibrant. That's my only complaint. Everything else, the other characterizations and the plot, were great. The story had several laugh out loud moments, and enough heat to make it a great romance.

    "Good once you get past the narrator."

    After you decide to continue even though the narrator is horrible, the book is funny. I have the ability to ignore a bad narrator so that the sorry is my main focus. With that said it turns out to be a good book as long as you are not looking for something deep.

    "Great Story, Poor Narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story. Linda Howard's books are always a pleasure to read. However, the narrator uses a high whiny squeeky voice for Blair- the main character. It really detracts from the overall pleasure of the read. But this just too much.Blair is a constant complainer but the accent is over the top.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters make the book worth reading.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Franette Liebow’s performances?

    I would choose to avoid a performance by Franette Liebow's unless I really wanted the particular book.


    Did To Die For inspire you to do anything?

    I read all her books.

    "Light, fun listen"

    I was a little surprised when I started listening to this book. I didn't expect the narrator's fun southern take on the character. This is not typical Linda Howard. Not a lot of substance or suspense, but a no brainer (didn't require lots of thinking) kind of book. Good for relaxing and kicking back. The narration was perfect, in my opinion. Fit the character of Blair to a T.

    "Narrator was not right for the book"

    It doesn't take very long to figure out the narrator's voice does not enhance the story. The pitch of her voice, at best, hurt my ears and it was almost impossible to get through the book. That being said, who chooses the narrator matching the voice with the characters in the story. The voice did not match Blair nor Blair's mother who was a past beauty queen. It's well known that a narrator can make or break the book unfortunately this is a prime example.
