Drop Dead Gorgeous by Linda Howard
Well - after waiting impatiently for this one, I finally got a chance to read it. I just finished it - for the first time - today. Yup, I'm going to be reading this one all over again.
Blair and Wyatt are back as good as ever the second time around. In fact in this one, Blair's self confidence, one of the things I love about her is a bit shaken. This scene just made her seem a bit more human than ever.
Starting at the beginning and trying not to give to much away, Blair is busy making her wedding plans when she is almost run over in a mall parking lot. Right away, she is suspicious that it was deliberate but has a bit of a tough time getting Wyatt to see this. Well, Blair being Blair doesn't take this lying down. On top of this she is trying to get Sally and Jazz back together again. You remember Sally who tried to run down Jazz when he redid their bedroom.
There are so many funny moments in this book that just like the last one that one reading isn't nearly enough. This one is much sexier too. One of the few things missing in To Die For was the hot sex scenes that Ms. Howard does so very well. Happily, they are back in this one! I started laughing at this one on almost the first page and kept it up for the whole book. This one is another real winner!! One thing I should add though is if you are looking for a good suspence than this probably won't work. I guessed right off who was the culprit and why she was doing it.

Born in Death by JD Robb
This one is another book I was anxiously waiting for. It's another great entry into the series. While not one of the better ones, I still enjoyed it immensely. There is just something so appealing about Eve, Roarke and the rest of them that every time I read a new one, it's like revisiting old friends.
In this one Eve is trying to solve the murder of a young couple who both work in a prestigious accounting firm. Roarke of course, helps her out although they are both very angered and hurt when Roarke ethics are called into question. At the same time Eve has been asked by Mavis to try and find a missing friend. Eve and Roarke are also preparing to be birth coaches for Mavis - and dreading it. As with DDG, there are many fine and funny moments in this book. Now after reading it, I'm again on the countdown for the next one!
