Written in her “trademark darkly sensual style” (Booklist), New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard brings us an electrifying page-turner of passion and suspense with a captivating premise…

What would make the perfect man? That's the delicious topic that heats up the proceedings at a certain table of professional women at their favorite restaurant. What qualities would he have? Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted—or would just muscular do? Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends start off with the basics: he'd be faithful and reliable, the responsible type, and have a great sense of humor.

But as the conversation picks up momentum, so do the quartet's requirements for Mr. Perfect as and they write down a tongue-in-cheek checklist that's both funny and racy. The next thing they know, the List, as it has come to be called, becomes an overnight sensation, spreading through their company like wildfire and grabbing the interest of local newspapers and television coverage. No one expected this avalanche of attention for something that began as a joke among friends. But the joke turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered...

The prime suspect in the case is the victim's boyfriend, who was one of a number of men who found the List sexist and offensive. An impenetrable alibi gets him off the hook, but a deadly stalker targets the three remaining friends. Now, with the help of Jaine's neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, the puzzle must be solved as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

Mr. Perfect
Average rating
4.4 / 5
Good book
April 24th, 2015
I don't read a lot of suspense novels cause usually I don't have the strength of nerves for it but this book wasn't too bad so probably too tame for those hard core thrill readers. By about half way through the book I had my suspicions and by the three quarter mark I had it figured out. I did like the characters, they had full, well rounded and realistic personalities and the romance was good.

I read this book because online reviews said it was laugh out loud do not read in public funny. There was only one quote out of the entire book that lived up to that for me personally. That being said it was a good book once I finally got into it which took me a while. I wish there was any epilogue or another book to go with it so it would feel more complete.

I love Linda Howards books, but I don't believe this was one of her best. Like all her books it kept me interested throughout and the twists where the characters were getting killed off were different but I kept me expecting more..
