Book 101: "Mr. Perfect" by Linda Howard

"Mr. Perfect"
by: Linda Howard

    Four best friends get together after work to define the perfect man--loyal, employed, nice, dependable are some of the qualifications. It's harmless fun and none of them expect it to lead to instant celebrity--and  it never came to their mind that this list would result in to murder.

    If there was on man Jaine Bright knows is about as far from Mr. Perfect as possible, it's her next door neighbor. He's a drunk, drives a beat up wreck with no muffler, and complains about her noise at all hours--including the middle of the day on Saturday when she's just trying to mow the lawn. Then Jaine learns the man, Sam Donovan is a Police Detective, a major hunk, not really a drunk at all, and that the beat up car is a police loaner for a stake-out. When he replaces the burnt out muffler, she knows she is in trouble. What she doesn't know is that she's in two kinds of trouble. Sam is the obvious problem but Jaine is one of the four friends and the killer intends to add her to his list.

    Sam didn't think he was ready to give up being single without a fight, but Jaine provides enough fight for any three men. He's sunk before he even knows there's a battle going on. But can he keep her alive when a killer is stalking Detroit?

    I like the way Linda Howard writes the book especially how she drags me to the thrills that I wasn't expecting. The writer had humorously described the four young(well not so young)ladies.While I was reading it I am so clue less about the killer and I like it that way it made me more attached. The mystery had made me itch (as in a lot) to finish the book and to know who the killer is. Ms. Howard had provides plenty of suspense as the killer hunts down the four ladies one at a time.
