Publisher's Summary

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.

    I enjoyed this fun story. It was well narrated and had a little mild sex spice added in. All in all an enjoyable listen. :)

    What did you love best about Open Season?

    I liked the relationship and banter between Daisy and the cop.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book but thought that it was kind of an anticlimactic ending. I found it interesting how she put a little bit in there about the Mayor's wife at the end.

    "Absolutely Love It!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Open Season to be better than the print version?

    Yes, narrator portrayed characters far better than print did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this over and over. When I can't find anything new that appeals to me I listen to this or "Mr. Perfect" or " Now You See Me." Linda Howard ha become 3rd in my top ten authors. This booked helped her secure the placement.

    Any additional comments?

    It was a cute story, but predictable. The narrator did a great job with the voices and accent.

    Story
    "Good Romantic Suspense"

    This was a re-read for me and the second time around I still enjoyed it. The best part of the story was the romance. Linda Howard really knows how to write a believable "I can't stand you" to "I love you" romance. I liked the main characters a lot, but Daisy was so naive, it got to be ridiculous. Still a good listen, though not my favorite Linda Howard book.

    "Great story and great narration"

    I already like Linda Howard, but with this book, there are some down right LOL moments (literally)--wait til the condom box scene. Hee! Yes, there is the romance aspect, but it's also a thriller and suspense. It will keep you on your toes and you'll fall in love with the main characters (including the main woman's aunt and mom). You won't regret getting this book. I listened to it on audio (I like audiobooks while I run or do weights) and the narrator is wonderful. You won't regret giving this book a chance. If you like this one, check out her Medina series.

    I guess I can also relate since I grew up in a small town. You'll love Daisy, Jack, Ev, aunt Jo, Todd, etc.

    "One of my favorites"

    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.

    "Almost thought I had the wrong audio"

    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!

    I believe there are 3 elements to a great romance audible book: good narration, believable plot, flawed characters and great dialogue!

    "Fell short of plot and romance"

    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!
