“Linda Howard is a superbly original storyteller.”—Iris Johansen

Blair Mallory 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, her 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.

I just have to say the 2 books w/ Blair and Wyatt are the best I have ever read. If you don't like these all I can say is you must not have a very good sense of humor. I hope Ms. Howard continues the series.

Some of the other fans remark on how poorly written 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' is, but neglect to realize that this novel is a different kind of story than Howard's other works like 'Killing Time,' or 'Now You See Her.' Funny, cute, and adorable characters that are an absolute joy to read are all too rare. To the future reader, I would disregard the negative comments, and highly recommend this novel.

I have enjoyed this book and the first book of the series "To Die For". I have read them both several times. Each book can and does stand on its own, but together they are unbeatable.

I loved both books of this series. The characters are so funny, especially Blair! I really hope she writes more books about this family, maybe Blair's sisters?

If you liked To Die For, you'll enjoy this sequel. I don't agree with the negative comments. Blair is a trip, and Wyatt is her perfect match. She's high maintenance alright, and he's more that up for the task. Even when she's complaining - she never claims or acts like she doesn't adore him and that's refreshing. Some heroines take that act too far. The dialog is funny, the plot keeps the pages turning, and the ending is very good. I'd like to see more books with these characters - especially Blair's sisters. Don't miss this.

Very different from Linda Howard's other books but I loved it. A send up of romance novels it features a heroine who seems to be the stereotypical cheerleader grown up. However, there is more to her than than an empty headed blonde. She is high maintenance but worth it. The only disappointment is the identity of the murder. The book is hysterical. An easy read and a lttle fluffy but well worth it.

This book is hysterical. I have never laughed out loud with a book so much in my life! A decent mystery, but the dialogue was even better -- laugh out loud funny.

I loved To Die For and was really excited that Linda Howard wroted a second book with these same characters. The only thing that could have been better is if something could have happened to make Wyatt a little more worried. Overall it was a definite page turner.

Entertaining, hard to put down, funny, mystery plot.

This is the sequel to To Die For and so there are semi-spoilers for the first one, they follow on almost immediately from each other. This one once again features Blair and Wyatt and their tempestuous relationship. The two of them are so alpha it's almost a constant battleground with them, but they're fun to read. Wyatt finally sets a deadline for Blair for them to get married as he's getting impatient with her. She starts her shopping only to be nearly run over in the car park. Wyatt thinks that it's just a coincidence but Blair is pretty sure that someone is out to get her again. But who can it be? Why do they want to kill her. Until Blair's house burns around her, Wyatt isn't convinced that she's in danger again. While this is an interesting and fun read, it's almost a redux of the first story in the series and really Blair is starting to get annoying. At least though she largely learns from her mistakes.

This is the sequel to "To Die For" featuring Blair Mallory. The story is told in first person, which can be extremely annoying, since Blair is a very high maintenance airhead. Cannot stand all the gameplaying with her relationship either. Ms Howard always tells a good story, but some of them can be a bit formulaic. She has written some incredibly complex satisfying books, but not for a while now. I think I'll go back and re-read "Son of the Morning". I wish I didn't think she was just writing now to make a quick buck.

I'm choking, I'm dying, I cannot breathe... I am laughing at how hilarious this book is! Great characters, great story! I could go on for hours about the memorable little moments of this book that make me want to laugh out loud all over again. But, you will get no spoilers from this review. Read this book, you will not be disappointed.

This book was written in first person, and "that" person is Blaire Mallory. She happens to drive me nuts, so I skimmed over a lot of material in this book. I usually like Linda Howard books, but this one was really a stinker. Mainly because of Blaire's maddening thought process. Sooo irritating.

Sequels aren't supposed to be this good. Blair is again in trouble, but this time, no one believes her! Furthermore, Wyatt offers her a list of character transgressions to work on, herself. Trying to plan a wedding while trying to investigate her attacker can be murder.

Written in the first person, which took some getting used to, good story, quirky dialogue funny, sexy tense

If I hadn't gotten in for free, I would never have listened to it. Yuck.

Blair is a great character. In real life, I'd probably find her endless energy, competitiveness and sheer game-playing annoying, not to mention exhausting, but as a character she's great fun. Howard also nicely demonstrates throughout how well-matched with Wyatt she is.
