Seamlessly blending heart-pounding romance and breathless intrigue, New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard writes a masterful, stylish, and provocative suspense novel that absolutely defies readers to put it down.

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 thirty-fourth birthday, still living with her widowed mom and spinster aunt, she decides it's time to get a life.

But can a lifelong good girl turn bad? No, not exactly.

But she can pretend, right?

One makeover later, Daisy has transformed herself into a party girl extraordinaire. She's letting her hair down, dancing the night away at clubs, and laughing and flirting with men for the first time in, well, ever. With a new lease on her own place and her life, it's open season for man-hunting.

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. Trouble is, before he can share her life, he might just have to save it.

Open Season by Linda Howard is a funny, romantic mystery about a librarian who, on her thirty-fourth birthday, decided that her life needed a drastic change. She was no longer content living a sheltered and lonely existence. Daisy Minor knew that to achieve the type of change she wanted, she’d have to revamp her entire image and move out of her mother’s house. Shock and gossip was going to rumble throughout her town. How could it not? It wasn’t everyday that a small southern-town, plain librarian transformed herself into to a bar-hopping sexy party-girl. Oh well, she’d just have to let the tongues wag.

Daisy Minor was surprised to discover that after her makeover, men were not only finding her attractive, but also desirable. For the first time in Daisy’s life she wasn’t the wallflower, but the center of attention. Daisy found though, that wherever she went, trouble and the chief of police, Jack Russo, seemed to follow. Although Daisy was unrealistically naive for a thirty-four year old woman, she was very opinionated, stubborn and able to stand her ground against alpha-male, chief of police, Jack Russo, which made each scene with the two of them hysterically funny.

On one of Daisy’s bar hopping expeditions she unintentionally witnessed a crime being committed. The boss of that crime operation didn’t know exactly how much Daisy had witnessed, but he wasn’t taking any chances. His men had botched the crime operation and left him with a lot of loose ends to clean up. He would eliminate them one by one – including Daisy Minor.

Open Season is an unrealistic and somewhat predictable story, but the budding romance and witty dialogue between Daisy and Jack Russo more than make up for it. The book does carry a serious sub-plot, but touches upon it so lightly that it doesn’t damper the story’s humor.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light humorous mystery. I found the book enjoyable and very funny.
