Publisher's Summary

What would make the perfect man?

That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....

Turning to her neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, for help, Jaine must unmask a killer to save her friends - and herself. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival - as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

©2001 Linda Howard (P)2012 Simon & Schuster

Critic Reviews

"Sexy fun....A frolicsome mystery...Jaine Bright lives up to her name: she's as bright - and explosive - as a firecracker." (People)
"There is nothing quite like a sexy and suspenseful story by the amazing Linda Howard! The sparring relationship between Sam and Jaine is a delight. Mr. Perfect is funny, exciting, gripping, and sensuous - in fact it ranks as one of her all-time best!" (Romantic Times)

Listened this time

with my hubby and he loved it. This book was one of the first audio books I ever listened to but, get this, it was on cassette tape...Long, long ago....hehe...
I have lost count how many times [with varying time frames between each] I've listened to this book! I have to truly love & I mean adore a book or series to read, reread or listen & re-listen to my books/audio books. This Author is so AWESOME, as is Laura Hicks, the "Professional Reader/Narrator" of this book. I may see if this author & reader have anymore available.

Mr Perfect is ALMOST perfect

Witty dialogue, great characters and an interesting story told by a great narrator. Not overly sexual but definitely not PG

I did enjoy the overall story...

Any additional comments?

liked this story...it was funny and smart. The only thing that I think didn't hold any strength was the content of the plot. I am trying to figure out a way of saying this without giving anything away :)
Directly from the synopsis: As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation

What they actually did and the reaction and publicity they received just wouldn't happen. I really liked how the author played the instant sensationalism into the story and how it created a chain of events, but honestly, I think that the author could have written a better catalyst than a "perfect man list"...

Yuck

Way too much sex and it really doesn't go in a crime novel .... Very off putting and the mystery is dull and predictable too!

Very good

It was a perfect blend in of comedy and crime, mot sure if that was intended but the book was brilliantly put together with style. The narrator was good, but I think a male narrator to do the male would have been better, but she did a good job.

I've read this book many times, first time listening. Some of the choices for voice are weird, but emotion/inflection was good.
