An old Favorite. Mr perfect by author Linda Howard

Do you have a old favorite? A book you just love and could read over and over? What book is it and why do you like it? I have several. Quite frankly every Julie Garwood book she's written.  One that comes to mind though from time to time is the first Linda Howard book i read. i can't even remember how i ended up reading it. A friend recommendation i think. the book in question is called " Mr Perfect" First plus is it takes place in Warren/Sterling heights MI area. I am from Michigan. The second thing. the characters are awesome. The male and female leads mesh so well. Oh and third yes third there is such a  mix of suspense and romance and comedy there is no room to get bored with it.  It was  initially published in hardcover in 2000 and paperback 2003. It's not been re issues that i know of so you might have a hard time finding it. I found myself a copy last week on paperback swap.com.

OK back to Mr perfect. I hunted up a little back cover info on the book to give you a taste. Here it is.


That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours of spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along e-mail lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....Turning to her neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, for help, Jaime must unmask a killer to save her friends - and herself. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival - as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

OK it sounds like of ominous and parts of it are i guess but the romance and funny parts balance it out so much. I swear i laugh out loud several times while reading it. Obvious Mr perfect gets 5 Modokker Book Pick stars! Love it!


  1. OMG! This was my very first Linda Howard book and I immediately glommed all of her books. I own every one of them. I totally agree with the 5 star rating. This is one of my all time favorite romantic suspense books.

  2. awesome! I have been picking up more and more Linda Howard books. Used book stores are great places to find them and cheap. Glad there is someone out there that agrees. I still snicker when i think of Jaine looking over to Same house and he's standing there in all his glory! lol
